Thankful Thursday 3/23/2017

Happy Thursday! It's that time of week again and I have a lot to be thankful for.

As I posted on Monday, I was waiting to see if the DJ from WRTI would e-mail me back about Romeo and Juliet. Sure enough, on Tuesday he did!

Jessica, I'm so glad you liked Romeo and Juliet at the Met!
Great pics! I feel like I was there with you!
Thanks for sharing!

I am thankful he responded and was nice about me reaching out. I was a bit nervous that he would be annoyed or think it was weird. Then again, I think radio personalities get this a lot and they are gracious about responding. I am thankful for the classical station and the niceness of the staff.

In May I am putting together a display for the library. My theme is "explore your world" and I'm going to share my world. I am going to put my scrapbook travel pages, my travel photos, some journal entries, and some postcards my friends have sent me from all over the world. I am thankful the library is supplying me with colourful paper so I can use it for my journal entries and scrapbook pages. Last night I posted some scrapbook pages that I am going to put in the display. I asked Karen if I could buy some on Tuesday, I explained I was going to use it for the display I'm doing in May, and she said, "help yourself since it's for the library." I am grateful.

I'm also thinking about putting an entry about my IELTS exam to move to Canada. I was going to put the picture of when I met Majd, the Lebanese girl I met during the IELTS exam and befriended, and was going to explain why I was there. Lately, I've thought about being more open about my progress and hard work; I'm thankful for the people that have been encouraging me to share. I'm hoping by opening up my world and sharing my world with others (travel, etc.) that people will be able to see the joy in their own personal worlds. We all have a story and we should share some of it. I'm also hoping the display will put some of the diverse communities at ease.

I'm also thankful for dad. Last night our dinner didn't turn out as great as we hoped. He overcooked the chicken and I was sort of rushing since I worked both jobs last night. I wanted to eat before 8 PM (I got done work at 6:30, we sat down to eat at 7:05). I apologized for my attitude and he said, "no, it's okay. I didn't realize how much prep was involved."(Mom is away on business.) I'm thankful he overlooked it, then apologized for overcooking the chicken. He bought me Caesar chicken salad for lunch.

I'm also still thankful for the Met Opera experience!

What are you thankful for?
