Tis the Season to be thankful so here's my list of what I'm thankful for as we head toward a new year, a fresh start and new dreams to be realized.
I'm thankful for express trains, for BLEEP Magazine and for the Hershey's Kisses Christmas commercials.
I'm thankful for gum that tastes like mint chocolate chip, that I've given up on Glee and for beautiful people on the subway.
I'm thankful for walking around New York after midnight, long conversations with no boundaries and the escaped Bronx Zoo snake's Twitter account.
I'm thankful for the new Coke machines with vanilla Coke Zero in them, the ability to not wear clothes from H&M not because they don't fit but because they are ugly and for epic nights out in the city with friends.
I'm thankful for the excitement between the plane landing and the Love Actually moments at baggage claim, for XM Radio stations and for driving down the Tollway while listening to them.
I'm thankful for End-of-Year lists, for Christmas cartoons and for tex-mex.
I'm thankful for puppies sleeping in my bed, for coat weather and for text messages.
These are the things I'm thankful for this Christmas. Here's to a great year and an even greater 2012.
