It’s the day after Thanksgiving and I’m laying in bed right now scrolling through Instagram while simultaneously writing this post and watching The Affair on ShowTime. I’m going to have to re-watch this episode, as I realized I’m about twenty minutes in and haven’t paid attention to any of it. Time to turn on music instead (super into Bieber right now).
Okay anyway, there are three main social media apps I switch between: Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat. All great for reasons of their own, and as obviously would be the case, the majority of pictures on my feed are pictures of friends gearing up for a Turkey Trot (guilty – I got my hungover butt out of bed at 7am yesterday morning to run one, and posted photo proof), Thanksgiving dinner (we all ate the same exact thing) and captioned couples photos: “Thankful to be with this guy today, and every day.” Same…
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating at all and really do enjoy seeing pictures of happy couples celebrating Thanksgiving with each other’s families. Yesterday was a picture-perfect November day, and why not be happy and show the world that you are? Trust me, if I had a cute BF to take a picture with, I would post it on all forms of social media. And when that happens, you all owe me likes.
I had a great day with my family (many of whom are followers of this blog – thanks!!!) and certainly have a lot to be thankful for. Without getting too sappy, I’m extremely thankful for my amazing family, incredible friends and my great job that is fully supportive of my next adventure (will explain in a future post). I’d say I’m pretty lucky and unbelievably fortunate.
I’m also thankful for the amount of Instagram gifs I got tagged in yesterday, including but not limited to the following:
- “Me trying to get out of the ‘single forever’ zone” – video of a cat spinning on a moving chair, unable to get off
- “Thanksgiving drinking game: every time your family asks why you’re single, take a drink”
- “Thanksgiving Survival Kit” – includes a glass of red wine and a name tag that reads “Hello – yes, I’m single and no, I don’t know what I want to do with my life”
- “Current relationship status” – photo of a girl with a stick figure boyfriend on the beach
- “What’s the deal with black Friday? I black out every Friday”
- “Who needs a boyfriend when… pizza”
- “It’s quite alright, I love my own company”
- “Glad I don’t have a BF to judge the amount of food I’m about to eat RN”
I get it, I’m single. But keep the tags coming, I LOL every time.
Maybe next year I’ll have a boyfriend accompany me to my family’s Thanksgiving dinner! Or I’ll just have even better material for the blog.
