Bwog Out And A Few Thoughts On Thankfulness

Have a great post-colonialist, all-inclusive Thanksgiving, everyone!

Have a great post-colonialist, all-inclusive Thanksgiving, everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Sure, we may have had some classes today, and it’s never too early to start those problem sets due on Monday, but this is the time to set aside work, be thankful, and get the hell out of MoHi.

That’s why Bwog is taking a break to live, breathe, and drink the holiday cheer. Whether you’re at home around a table with your family or at 1020 around a table with a few (too many) drinks, we hope you’ll be enjoying it all the same. Unless something important comes up, we’ll be shuffling back to Columbia in post-holiday mirth on Monday.

Be sure to send your tips, stories, and pictures to tips@bwog.com.

Lastly, following Bwog tradition, we’re here to share our annual (truncated) list of things we’re thankful for. Comment below some of the stuff you’re thankful for this year!
