November: The Unappreciated Month

Leave a comment

November is a great month. But the unfortunate thing is, a lot of people neglect to recognize its awesomeness because they are too caught up in the beginnings of the Christmas festivities. Which should technically be reserved for December.

But let’s take a closer look at November itself. I am not going to write fourteen reasons why November is awesome like I did with October, because I don’t have the energy. But here are some reasons:

–Midterms are pretty much over (well at least for most North campus folks.) That also means it’s probably time to start on those big term papers, but let’s be honest…we don’t start those till 10th week anyway.

–Veterans’ Day! This year, Veterans’ Day was on 11/11/11, which made it extra cool. (hope you made a good wish, by the way.) It’s a day off…and of course, let’s not forget to recognize all them veterans who are way braver than us!

–Thanksgiving. This is my personal favorite holiday. The food is amazing, you get to go home for a spell…watch the Macy’s parade…etc etc. In college, though, Thanksgiving is such a tease. After 4 days of stuffing your face and relaxing, you’re suddenly at school again having to study for finals.

In conclusion, (fifth grade transition word), here is a haiku about November. Please submit your own haiku in the comments section, because I am sure it will be better than mine. I look forward to reading it!
