Thankful Thursday: 1/31/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Tonight I saw the French movie The Intouchables for free at my university's union.  It was great - I highly recommend it.  Don't let the language throw you off; you'll laugh a ton and feel good, even while reading English subtitles.  Now that I'm home, I can hear my new roommate laughing while watching a show in her room.  She's got a full, hearty laugh; so I'm smiling here in my room, very content with my current living arrangements. 

One of my roommates left Monday morning to study abroad for the spring semester, hence the new roommate.  Somehow all of the girls who live/have lived in this apartment -- past and present -- are wonderful.  I really lucked out this fall when I was apartment hunting, and I'm so thankful for my roommates.  Who you live with can have a huge effect on your life, so again, thankfully now it's completely a positive effect and I feel at home when I'm at home.

"When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity."
-Elie Wiesel
