Perhaps not everyone observes Thanksgiving as an actual holiday. That’s perfectly fine. It’s still a great reason to stuff your face, watch some football, and be thankful for the things you have around you!
As I sit in my office (people still have to know the traffic), I’m inclined to be thankful for a lot of things. The usual: I’m happy I have a job, my health, my happiness, and a roof over my head.
However, I’m going to take one extra moment to be thankful for why I’m here writing this. Yes, I’m thankful that my brother introduced me to this game 3 years ago. I’m thankful that it has become a part of my life.
In its integration, this game has introduced me to a wealth of great people. Some have come and gone, but others are here to stay. Some I leveled with, others I’ve met since my attainment of the top level of this game. I’ve raided with these people, PvP’d with these people, cursed and praised the game with these people.
I’m thankful for the people I’ve found upon my joining the Twitter community. Without my introduction to Twitter, I never would’ve transferred to Khadgar, where I first started learning about the expansive blogging community we have. I never would’ve started reading World of Matticus. I’m thankful that the passion I found within this community has expanded my own passions. I’m thankful that this path eventually introduced me to Lodur and Matticus, which led me to find such a great raiding guild to be a part of, Unpossible.
Finally, I’m greatful for the support and warmth that this community provides. We all come from different walks of life, and we can all come together to share our passion of this game. We can disagree at times, but that’s what makes it so great. Where we go from here…
Let’s kick Arthas’s ass!
Happy Holidays from your friend neighborhood Thespius.
