Student Blog The blog of William Woods University Undergraduate Students


Counting my blessings

Hello from my basement! I am writing this week’s blog from home because I’m on Thanksgiving break! Woo hoo! Gotta love time off from classes to spend some much needed quality time with my crazy family. :)

We're uh...somethin' else..

You’ve probably seen the “Thanksgiving Challenge” all over Facebook this month-people posting something they’re thankful for as their status every day. I haven’t done that myself, but I’ve enjoyed reading what everyone else considers important in their lives.

Those “challenges” are always hard for me to participate in because I get too stressed that I’ll leave something out or place more importance on one thing over another. BUT I’ve decided to use this blog as my platform for letting the world know what I’m thankful for this year.

Of course I’m thankful for my family, my friends, my pets, my health, my freedoms, etc. Those are no-brainers. But today I’d like to focus on something else I’m thankful for: my education. My four years at William Woods University have FLOWN by, and I’m SO thankful for every moment I’ve spent here.

When I started here as a freshman, I had no idea how much of an impact WWU would have on my life and the person I have become. I have learned, been challenged, struggled and succeeded. I have studied and explored, laughed and cried. Why? Because of everything I have experienced here at The Woods.

I am thankful for the professors who’ve had patience with me and my bosses who’ve hired me. I am thankful for the maintenance staff who has cleaned my bathroom and the cooks in Tucker who have fed me every day. I’m even thankful for those silly geese who sometimes hiss at me when I walk a little too close to them.

I'll just keep my distance..

But most of all, I’m thankful for the fact that I love my school so very much. I’ve seen so many of my friends’ statuses saying how they can’t wait to get back to good ‘ol Fulton and see everyone, and while I love being with my family so much, I feel the same way. I don’t think there are many people in this world who can say that they miss their school when they go home for breaks, but I’m happy to say that I’m part of the minority!

If you’re looking for a home away from home, a second family, a place that will be hard to leave when it’s time to graduate, then you need to check out William Woods University. Call the Office of Admissions, make an appointment and come learn about all the great things WWU has to offer. And since this is the season of being thankful, you can thank me later for encouraging you to visit. :)

Anyway, I’m gonna head upstairs now and watch “Home Alone” with my family (a Wortmann favorite!) I hope you’ve had an amazing Thanksgiving with your family and I hope even more that we’ll see you on campus very soon!

Until next time, smiles and sunshine! :)

    this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
