6 Things I'm Thankful For in 2016


With this being my first Thanksgiving with LBTY, I figured I’d post a list of things I’m thankful for.

I’m Thankful For:

1. You Guys

Gonna start with the big guns. I’m so incredibly thankful for YOU. Yes, you. The person reading this right now. I’m thankful for you for reading my blog. I’m thankful for anyone who’s ever read my blog, shared a post on social media or left a comment somewhere. You guys are the reason I keep this blog going. I’m big on helping people, and even if only a few people take something from here, then I’m more than happy.

2. My Friends

I have a few very close friends and they’re almost like family to me. Without them I’d be lost in the world. They’re a huge support system and I can sometimes bounce ideas off them. They’ve been with me through some tough times and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

3. Mid Major Madness

My journalism in the world of D1 college basketball has given me so many opportunities. I’ve been able to go to some really cool arenas, meet some awesome people, have my work viewed by hundreds to even thousands of people… I’ve been on random radio stations throughout the US, and I’ve definitely refined my love of the sport.

4. My Day Job

I wouldn’t be able to do any of my hobbies without my day job. I love the people and the environment, and some days, even like what I do. (You can only format resumes for so long before staring at a screen gets tiring) It provides me with the income I need to survive, but isn’t so demanding that it takes up all of my time. It’s great.

5. My Housing Situation

I currently have a great housing situation going on. I have a wonderful roommate and she has the most adorable mini labradoodle. Between them and her boyfriend, there’s never a dull moment in the house. (It also makes living there affordable!) Because of her I’ve been able to stay in the same place for more than a year. I got a bit tired of moving all the time.

6. YouTube

Okay, so hear me out… There are so many different types of content creators on YouTube. I watch a variety of things, but mainly gaming videos. There are a few specific YTers that got me through some rough times including Nerd Cubed, Many a True Nerd, Grav3yardgirl and GentleWhispering.
