Happy Diwali!

The festival of light and if you ask me it’s the best festival of the year. It’s about friends and family as well as history and light. It’s always just this beautiful and festive celebration that I’m proud to be part of. 


Happy Thanksgiving!

This may be an uncommon opinion but Thanksgiving may just be my all-time favorite holiday. I don’t know what critics others use when judging the best holiday but for me, it’s the coming together. It’s about getting to spend time with my closest family and friends, and even the time I thought it completely sucked it still was able to be an amazing because I got to spend a day enjoying the company of the people I love. I know some people might think the same about Christmas but I think Christmas has to much hype with it. It’s just expected to be the most festive holiday I think that might be the very reason it doesn’t feel like it. 

Plus Thanksgiving dinner is without fail always the best. It had the best food and the greatest dessert, pie. My mom particularity makes the absolute best apple buy, which is always accompanied by an wonderful bakery pumkin pie brought by my aunt. Really it’s just a day with the most grand yet initiate dinner celebration of the year. That’s why I love it. It’s predictably fun and warming. In my 22 years Thanksgiving has not failed me in being great. 

Solar Eclipse 

Today was a total solar eclipse and I watched start to finish, kind of. My conclusion of the event, it was breathtaking and totally amazing. For me, this was actually my very first eclipse and I have to say it was something worth marking.

One uncommon thing that I think added to the amazingness, making it so much more of an event; not just watching the sun being hidden behind the moon but getting to seeing the surrounding differences. I’m not sure if that completely makes sense, maybe it’s just part of my science interest. As in how the environment changes in accordance to everything, the link that exists.


Happy Rakhi!

For those of you who don’t know Rakhi is the celebration of the bond between brothers and sisters.

The thing I love most about this holiday is the very thing that is being celebrated. As I’ve mentioned many times I have a strong hold for family and Rakhi is celebrating the very reason why. That bond shared between sibling and family, a bond that is about more than just blood, it’s one of the most valuable things in the world.
