My mother just got an iPad mini for her birthday and is currently busy taking embarrassing photos of me stuffing my face with my first homemade dinner since August.
Back home, everything is the same as always–in other words, it feels wonderful to be here. The sheer joy I feel from the opportunity I’m getting to rest and recharge this week before our last stretch of finals allows me to feel no shame about the extra pounds I’m going to pack on by the end of this holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. May you all eat well, be merry, and be super thankful for the deliciousness of cranberry sauce.
