November is finally here. It’s not like anything that special will be happening this November, but it is comforting to say “it’s finally November of my senior year and although I may not have everything under control, I have some things under control”. This month’s theme is Thanks. I think this theme is fitting, not only because of thanksgiving, but also because I feel that sometimes I focus more on complaining than being thankful. Maegan once wrote about the little things deserving more attention and I completely agree. Not everything has to be going your way for you to be thankful. I learned a lot last month. I learned that I make mistakes and it is awful to disappoint people and yourself, but you have to make mistakes to grow and learn. I learned that the ACT really isn’t that bad if I relax and refrain from stressing over it. I also learned that I still don’t enjoy high school football games and that’s okay.

What to focus on this November:

  • Finishing one thing before starting another.
  • Having a more open mind about friendships: branch out
  • Give others some personal space and take some for yourself
  • School is important, school is important, school is important
  • Don’t lose your focus

GrrlPunchers, we want to read all about what you’re thankful or maybe even what you’re not thankful for. Maybe a “thanks” in an article could even be sarcastic? Who knows… the options are endless. Submit everything to grrlpunchmagazine@gmail.com and if we can work it into the calendar we will definitely post it! Thanks so much.

Much Love Always,

Lucy
