What I'm Thankful For

Here in the United States, it is Thanksgiving! And as I've discussed before, I have some really basic tendencies, so I just wanted to take a moment to say what I'm thankful for this year.

As always, I'm thankful for my family. I love them to pieces and I'm just so lucky to have them in my life.

I'm also thankful for my job, and the direction it is heading in. I have been at my job for just over three years, and when I got it, I didn't even expect to get it - I had been a victim of the Great Recession and had been unemployed for six years. When I got hired, my then boss asked me if I thought I was getting a job that day, and I to honestly reply, "no." And since I've been hired, I've been working hard and it hasn't gone unnoticed - I've gotten six promotions in the past three years, and I love my job. I love what I do. And I love that in my company, there is always room to grow.

I'm thankful YouTube has added free, ad-supported movies (that last adjective not really mattering to me since I have YouTube premium), and one of those movies is Saved! If you have never seen Saved!, you need to. They also have Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2.

And I'm also thankful that I can watch a new season of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 while I digest turkey tonight.

What are you thankful for?
