If you haven’t gained 10 pounds by Monday, you haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving correctly

We did it! We made it to Thanksgiving Break! Whether you’re going back home or staying on campus, use these next few days to eat lots of good food (calories don’t count during Thanksgiving), and to spend some quality time with friends and/or family (bonus points if you refrain from talking about politics)!

The writers here at Bwog will also be spending some time enjoying Thanksgiving (yes, believe it or not, most of us do have lives outside of Bwog). But don’t you worry – we’ll be back next Monday!

To kick off Thanksgiving break, it’s a hallowed tradition for us at Bwog to post a list of things that we’re thankful for. Until next Monday, Columbia!
