The Be Thankful Challenge


Thanksgiving is near (and I think already happened very recently in Canada) and it’s time to show what you’re thankful for! We, here in Austria, don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, but I like the thought of sharing these lovely things through the Be Thankful Challenge, so I want to start by thanking the lovely Trish @It Is Trish for tagging me!

The Rules

Share this image in your blog post.

5 People I’m Thankful For

  • My parents/entire family! They’ve been so patient with me and my (so far not very successful) job hunt. I know that I can be a handful sometimes and I am so happy that they are still supporting me and my dreams.
  • Everyone in the blogger community! It’s been such a blast getting to know you all and to have someone to fangirl with. Life wouldn’t be the same without all of you crazy, welcoming and simply amazing people!
  • All my friends! Ever since we parted ways after school or for some other reason, we miraculously managed to stay in contact. I am so thankful for all the people who remained in my life, even when we weren’t able to see each other every single day and had to put in some effort.
  • Tahereh Mafi! I can’t get over how amazing her style of writing is and that even though it’s been such a long time since I’ve read her books. She is a constant inspiration and idol of mine, even though my writing is nothing like hers, because she is original, creative and can be just as weird as me.
  • Cassandra Clare! I’m impatiently awaiting the release of the Shadowhunters TV show and none of it would have been possible without her books. She wrote an addictive universe and I am so happy that she continues to stay in this world with her upcoming books.

5 Things I’m Thankful For

  • Music! I don’t leave the house without my iPod and I am constantly listening to something on some sort of platform. Life would be so dull without it.
  • Books! Do I need to explain this? I’ve always loved reading and I can’t imagine how my life would be without the fantastic stories I’ve been able to experience within all those pages and illustrations.
  • Sleep! I get cranky without enough sleep and I love dreaming. If you’ve read my NaNoWriMo announcement, you know that one dream even inspired this year’s project.
  • TV shows! I spend so much time watching so many different shows – I think I care about some of the characters just as much as I care about some of my books.
  • Tea! Especially now that it is getting colder, tea is just a life saver! I love everything about it and to quote the Mentalist here: “It’s like a hug in a cup.”

5 Blogs I tag (and for which I am also very thankful!)

  1. TV shows – yes! And I love that you thanked specific authors. I’m so glad you did this post (and so quickly)! It’s nice to be reminded of OTHER things I am also thankful for.

    • Well thank you again for tagging me 😀 it was a lot of fun and I actually had to think about how to narrow it down hahaha
      I am looking forward to what the other people will come up with. I bet they have things on their lists that I don’t have either, but still am thankful for.


  2. Thanks for the tag 🙂 . It’s impossible not to be thankful for the blogger community. Also, I’m pretty sure that at leat half of the things I’m thankful will be the same as you
