An extra festive Thanksgiving!

Every November, I eagerly anticipate Thanksgiving break because of the delicious food and down time at home with family and friends! This Thanksgiving was filled with great food, and time with the family, but I wouldn't exactly call it down time.

After Thanksgiving dinner, my family had to pack and get some rest before traveling to upstate New York the following morning for my cousin's wedding on Saturday. It was a fun and grand gathering with relatives coming from all over - Pakistan, Canada, California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Ohio!

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were spent helping with wedding preparation and attending daily family brunches, lunches, and dinners! Getting to see everyone was really nice, however driving back, not so much. The usual 5 hour drive took a total of 8 hours due to traffic on Sunday!!!

Taking part in all the wedding festivities kept me up and going, with barely any down time. The story is no different here at school. Having survived the first week back, I am staying positive and working hard in order to successfully make it through these last 2 weeks! Will I finally get my highly anticipated down time then? Stay tuned to find out! :)

Best of luck to everyone! We can do it!
