1. I love Fall... the leaves, the cooler weather, the cozy feeling. If you don't know this by now, Autumn is definitely my favourite season. Also, something I've been wondering is whether I prefer using the word "Fall" or "Autumn." I'm not quite sure yet. Fall perfectly fits the whole falling of the leaves thing, but Autumn sounds so proper and fancy! Which one do you use?
2. I'm trying to collect enough pennies to fill a $25 bag. One bag can provide clean water for one person for life! It's the largest penny drive hosted by Free the Children organization. It's pretty fun actually, considering my love of collecting things.
I'm so happy that it's the long Thanksgiving weekend! There are many things in my everyday life that I take for granted. Living in a developed country that basically has it all makes me forget that not everyone gets to live the way I do. There are kids younger than me who have so little, yet at the same time, are so happy.
This weekend I'll be counting my blessings and thanking the One who never stops giving. Some things I'm thankful for are:
Jesus. He is always there for me even when I drift away from Him and forget to pray and read my bible. I know He's watching over me and has a beautiful plan for my life. I don't know what my life would be like without Him.
My amazing family. The ones who I can be silly, goofy, crazy and weird with and they will love me no matter what!
My close friends who I'm getting closer to by the day. I could spend hours just talking with them and not get bored!
Technology like my camera, laptop and phone. Without these things I wouldn't be able to do one of my favourite hobbies, connect with my friends, or write this blog post!
Education. Even though I strongly dislike homework, studying and exams, I am grateful to have the opportunity to go to school and learn new things everyday! (Even if those things can be a little boring or confusing at times!)
You lovely blogging buddies! I'm not sure if I say this enough, but thanks to all of you who follow and/or comment on my blog! I really appreciate it! You don't even know how happy it makes me when I see that I've gained a follower or have a new comment! You guys rock!
