Give Thanks Future Style

I have so very much to be thankful for in life and this year especially.  I'm currently sitting with my three cousins, next to a just-decorated Christmas tree, having just eaten a meal of Thanksgiving leftovers and pie (basically all you could ask for on black friday).  I have a weekend outside of the city (although in the city would be nice as well), with real people; people who aren't stressing over their last midterm before finals.  I have homework to do, but I know I'll get it done.  

On a larger scale, there are far too many things that I'm thankful for to list.  But top of my list has to be my lovely fiancee, Justin.  It's been so long since I've last seen him, but I'm starting to believe that absence really does make the heart grow fonder.  And it makes Christmas all the more exciting, knowing that I get to see him!

All my life, I always loved holiday traditions.  I love cooking Thanksgiving dinner, decorating the house for Christmas, and every other little possible way to celebrate.  The holidays have always been very special to me, and I wasn't sure how moving to New York would change the traditions I love.  But since I've moved here and had some of my traditions shaken up, I've learned that it's exciting to change things up and start new traditions.  

So right now, the thing I'm most thankful for is future holidays, especially with Justin.  Call me sentimental, but it's an exciting prospect.  Not only will we soon get to make our own traditions together, but we get to do so in New York!  

This isn't the most cohesive message today, but the sentiment is that the future looks bright and instead of resisting change, for the first time I seem to be embracing or- dare I say looking forward to- changes!

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
