“Road trippin’ with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It’s time to leave this town, it’s time to steal away
Let’s go get lost, anywhere in the U.S.A.”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers played from my iPod as five classmates and I entered downtown Indianapolis last Saturday night. We decided to take a trip together to kick off the start of our week-long Thanksgiving break. So, after PAP on Saturday morning, I threw some things into a backpack and hopped onto a bus to Indiana, not really knowing what lay ahead.

It was a great trip, with fantastic weather, delicious food, lots of sight-seeing, some (completely necessary!) shopping and the Indianapolis Zoo.

Now that we’re back in Chicago, it’s time to hit the books again. Even though it’s a break week, we have a handful of assignments with due dates fast approaching, and quarter exams will start before we know it. Knowing this, I’m really grateful to have had this time to get away, to relax, and to have some fun with new friends.

And I’m also grateful that I get to celebrate a second Thanksgiving! (Canadians celebrate the second Monday of October.) You can never have too much turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
