Thanksgiving has come and gone, and hopefully everyone had a great time! Even for those who don’t celebrate the holiday with a grand feast, and family, it’s safe to say it’s still a great day to count all your blessings. Here are what some teachers and students in our Bearcat community are grateful for:
Sophomore Keerthana B. says, “I’m grateful for food because it has gotten me through the hardest parts of my life, like the first season of Riverdale and the climax of the Bachelorette.” Food is a stress reliever for most, even if we hate to admit it, especially during times like now that we’re nearing the end of the semester, or even while watching TV shows.
Junior Subin S. says, “I am grateful for time to sleep, especially since I’m taking the IB diploma, and I have to stay awake for classes.” Food and sleep- sometimes the everyday things are what we should appreciate the most. Although many students may resort to pulling all-nighters or staying up late to finish assignments, it’s always better to get your rest. Considering the assessments right now, especially for upperclassmen, when you do get that time to rest, appreciate it!
In addition, sophomore Henry B. says, “I’m grateful for technology, because it provides entertainment for me outside of class, and allows me to communicate with friends in other countries.” Although you may not be with all your family and friends in one country, celebrating Thanksgiving, you can always use technology to call your friends and tell them how grateful you are to have them in your life!
Finally, Band teacher Mr. Nazereno says, “I am grateful for my loving family and the life that I have as a music teacher. I get to be with the love of my life and a job that I am happy to do everyday.” Mr. Nazereno is grateful for both his life at school, as well as home, which is what we should all learn to do as well. Even when it isn’t Thanksgiving, we should still be appreciative of everyone in our lives, especially this joyful season, with Christmas coming up soon as well.
Thanksgiving is only once a year, so we hope you enjoyed it. It’s a time to be grateful, eat good food, and celebrate with family and friends. Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday, we hope you had a great November 23rd!
