Happy Thanksgiving everyone! A few minutes ago, I was browsing some posts on the Coldplay fan forum, Coldplaying, and I came across this one post by a user named pansonic. He said:
“I am thankful for one simple fact.
No matter what happens in the short run, if you keep doing your thing, keep trusting yourself, sooner or later things will turn out your way.
I always try to remember that when things are looking sour - I tell myself that this is just a temporary glitch and that I should keep a stiff upper lip - and it usually is true”
I was going to say something similar to that, but he managed to say in a better way than I thought I would say it. Nonetheless, those are the words of hope I’ll stick to whenever I’m feeling down, because, well, I’m still going through some pretty tough times.
Now it’s time for me to list all of the things I’m thankful for! You don’t have to read the whole list, you can just skim through it while you’re eating turkey. If it’s still cooking, then you can just read it while you wait for that tasty bird to be ready! or ham, for those allergic to turkey…
I’m thankful for:
- All of my family, friends, and fans, for their continuous support.
- The letter “Q”
- The fact that I told her how I feel for her and she still decides to talk and act friendly to me. (Don’t bother asking who.)
- Being blessed with the most influential music I ever listened to. (Alex Lifeson, Asia, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, The Beatles, Cherri Bomb, Coldplay, David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Foxboro Hot Tubs, Frank Ocean, Gary Numan, Geddy Lee, Green Day, How to Destroy Angels, John Lennon, Masafumi Gotoh, Megadeth, Neil Peart, Nine Inch Nails, Paul Westerberg, The Police, Queensrÿche, Radiohead, The Replacements, Roger Waters, Rush, Smashing Pumpkins, Stewart Copeland, Ting Tings, Toadies, Tubeway Army, Weezer, Jack White, The White Stripes, Yellow Magic Orchestra)
- Being blessed with the most awesome games I ever played, of course! (Animal Crossing, Crash Bandicoot classics, Kirby series, LittleBigPlanet 2, Mario Kart series, Sonic the Hedgehog, Spyro the Dragon classics, Super Smash Bros. series, Uncharted)
- Being able to play and race with Jughead’s awesome Rich Petty Crew from 2009 to 2012. (Torus, I wouldn’t call off our rivalry!)
- Steve Jobs and Bill Gates for the awesome technology I guess?
- Everyone I ever met that has treated me so kind. Don’t worry, I treat them kind, too!
- The Thanksgiving food, of course!
- You for reading this.
Happy Thanksgiving! Be safe!
