Last night was something I had been waiting for awhile... THANKSGIVING IN ALLIOT!!A lot of the upperclassmen had told me how awesome Thanksgiving is so I was really excited to get to experience it for myself. Of course it is no replacement for the Thanksgiving dinner I will eat with my family next week, it was wonderful to get to enjoy a nice meal with my St. Mike's family.
It was a beautiful day yesterday... a little chilly, but really sunny. This is what the sunset looked like... so pretty!

|Tablecloths are so fancy!|
After we put our stuff on the table to claim it, we went up and got our food. There was everything you could possibly want for Thanksgiving... turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, peas and boiling onions, corn, all sorts of bread and rolls.

I am so thankful for all the people at St. Mike's. The people here are so friendly. From the people I don't know who hold the door for me going into Alliot to Dave, the guy who swipes cards in Alliot, to my amazing professors... they're all such nice people.
But most of all, I am thankful for my close friends. In the not-quite-three months that I have been here, I have completely found my place in this community. I have the greatest friends here... I know they always have my back. Three months ago we were strangers, but it is amazing how close you can get to people so quickly. From getting each other's silly (and sometimes... cheesy) humor to having the same taste in movies/TV shows/books to doing little things just to brighten each other's days... these people are truly my friends and it's wonderful. I am so, so lucky to be able to be here and be surrounded by such warm and genuine people.
