Social Media Thanksgiving

IT'S THANKSGIVING WEEK! You know what that means. The one week out of the year that we all pretend we are way more grateful for simple pleasures in life than we actually are. One of my simple pleasures in life is this blog, and social media in general. So today I'm telling you five things I'm thankful for, specifically about social media.

1. A distraction

Social media can be a blessing or a curse in this regard, depending on how you look at it. But I choose for this to be a blessing, specifically right now as I'm writing this blog post and distracting myself from the economics paper I have to write.

2. A reunion of sorts

Social media can be a great way to reunite and catch up with loved ones, old friends, and teachers you haven't heard from in a while.

3. A creative outlet

I'm especially thankful for this blog this year. Blogging hasn't always been easy, and my posts haven't always been great, I'll be the first one to admit that. But this blog has given me a new creative outlet and a place to get all my weird, funny, inspiring, or just social-media-obsessed thoughts out. I'm especially thankful to those who have chosen to support me along this journey, as well.

4. My main entertainment source

It might be sad to some of you who didn't grow up with social media, but I obtain a good portion of my entertainment these days by scrolling through my phone. Contrary to popular belief, teenagers still do talk to people face-to-face, and yes, we can hang out without our phones, but there's just something about a funny viral video, or the latest meme.

5. It spreads happiness

I especially love this time of year because most people go home for the holidays or spend it with their family, and when they do they put it on social media for everyone to see. It seems like everyone is happy and they've finally taken a break from the stress, which I absolutely love seeing!




Thanksgiving is one of the most underrated holidays in my opinion. You literally sit around and stuff your face with food as you spend the day with friends and family. Comment down below some non-traditional things you're thankful for, like shampoo and conditioner, or a refrigerator! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. This time of year always has everyone thinking about what they are thankful for. Although I wish that people would acknowledge what they are thankful for all during the year, but I'll take what I can get.
