20 things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving

Sometimes, in the midst of a crazy semester, it’s hard to remember what to be thankful for.

Luckily, you have me.
Here are my reminders of what to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Taylor Swift is finally growing up. She wears red lipstick now.

Big Bird is safe.

When a professor is smart enough to know group projects are just bad ideas.

Katie Holmes survived the divorce, and Suri came out with more sass than ever.

When nice people actually have good things happen to them, and you remember that maybe the world doesn’t always suck.

Twilight is finally through.

Those wonderful moments when your professor decides to curve the test, you wake up after a long night with your phone and ID and the bus is actually on time.

‘BOY MEETS WORLD’ spin-off. Need I say more?

Despite whoever you voted for, same-sex marriage is now legal in three more states. If that’s not a good thing for you, then it’s still illegal in 41 states.

Waffle House. All day, every day.

Vice President Joe Biden is coming to NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”

Everyone is starting to get annoyed with Facebook.

Miley Cyrus’ hair is starting to grow back. Soon she’ll be married, boring and out of our lives.

More people between the ages of 18 and 24 voted. We’re not as disinterested as everyone thought we would be.

Ugg sales are down. They’re finally disappearing.

George Clooney still looks that good.

The holidays are coming. The holidays are coming.

Four more years until another onslaught of campaign advertisements and negative paragraph-long political statuses on Facebook that include at least four misspellings.

Susan B. Anthony was beat up and arrested when she tried to vote in 1872. All you had was a long line.

You’ve almost survived this semester. Almost.

And of course, don’t forget about IU basketball and the fact that we are the No. 1 ranked team in the country.

Sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down by all the negativity we hear every day, because it’s the easiest thing to focus on.

But let’s all take a minute to appreciate something in our lives.
