I know this is literally the most stereotypical thing to ask given that Thanksgiving is tomorrow at the time of writing this, but I think it is an important question: what are you thankful for? Any answer will do.

I will create a lengthier post of my own later today or tomorrow, depending on when I don't feel like being a lazy sack of potatoes.
~missbailey8~

Me: What is the weirdest thing I have ever done?
Solon: Agreeing to date me.

Skep: Bailey, you have sardonic written all over your face.
Annie: She has gorgeous written all over her face!

I'm thankful for the great people of DDO, who are sure to throw their support behind me and bossy to serve as co-presidents of DDO.

Well, time to stop being lazy and get to finally writing this! This is going to be long as f*ck, but you know what you were going into, so #sorrynotsorry. Among the many things I am thankful for (I.e my education, the life I have been given, my newfound happiness, etc.), I want to dedicate this post to just two of them. Time to get emotional!

DDO

Almost nine months ago, I stumbled across DDO after I searched for a debating website. It may not be the most exciting origin story, but oh well. In my time here, I have realized one thing: I never want to leave. I know that I will have to someday, but even then, DDO will always be near and dear to me.

What really makes the site for me isn't the debating, mafia games, or forums; it is the community. Granted, DDO does not have the greatest mixture of people when considering the community as a whole, but there are certain users that stand out to me, whether it be for their overall influence of the site, disposition, intelligence, or uniqueness. There are too many people to list here who have made a positive impact on me for all of these reasons and more, but I will talk about one of them specifically.

Solon

For those of you who don't know the lovely SolonKR, you are certainly missing out. Not only is he a bright young man, an absolute memelord, and my personal favorite member of the entire site, but also the love of my life. He is the main reason I am making this post to begin with.

On April 30th of this year, I officially met Solon via a Google Hangout while playing live mafia. Over the summer, he and I became best friends. In July, I briefly left DDO because my suicidal thoughts started to take over. Solon reached out to me and offered his support. Honestly, that is what might have brought us closer together. To this very day, he still gives me his support in any way he can.

It has been 209 days since I met Solon, but it feels much longer than that, but regardless, I can't wait for 209 days to gradually build to any eternity with him.

Solon, I love you, I love you, and I f*cking love you. Nothing ever can or will change that.

Me: What is the weirdest thing I have ever done?
Solon: Agreeing to date me.

Skep: Bailey, you have sardonic written all over your face.

I'm thankful for a heckuvalotta things this year; 2016 has been a great year, and I feel optimistic that 2017 will be even better. The pieces of my life have really started to fall into place this year; I know what the future has in store, and it's wonderful.

In particular, I'm thankful most of all for my first and forever love, Bailey. She has inspired me to be a better person, and she's taught me what true love and true happiness is. Before I got close to her, I was happy in the sense that I wasn't sad, but it was a surface-level happiness--I hung out with friends and watched YouTube, and laughed a lot. When I wasn't laughing on some days, though, the existential dread (really, that silly comic that you might have seen around is pretty accurate) would set in; it was a manageable, but mediocre equilibrium. Now that I have Bailey and she has me, though, I've never had that dread set in again. Bailey gives me a purpose--I'm not just going through different stages of life so that I can get a job, get married, have kids, accomplish some career goals, grow old, and all that jazz (although obviously I still want all that). Instead, I'm living in the moment, appreciating and loving the now, and it's all thanks to her. I am truly the happiest I've ever been, and words cannot express my thankfulness for that.

I love you, Bailey <3
SO to Bailey, the love of my life <3

Sudafed! I'm sick as hell and my sinuses have a problem where they don't drain right, so Sudafed is basically the best thing ever. Not gonna lie, I almost cried when my boyfriend said he'd run to the store to get it for me. Oh, and I'm also thankful for him. Whenever I'm sick, he's basically the human embodiment of patience and kindness.

I am thankful for Baby Girl, who is a little stray kitten that nobody cares about and she's the SWEETEST and CUTEST thing EVER!!!!
I'm thankful for my neighbor's dog, Zoe, because my friend and I get paid to take her for walks, but I'd do it without money, too. We take her back to the abandoned airfield behind all the houses and twice we have seen a BARN OWL fly out of the old, rotting hangars where they would keep airplanes.
I'm thankful for all my friends and family, as they fill my life with joy (this is especially directed to Llaurenthellama, whom I know in person).
I'm thankful that I know exactly what I want to do in life (become a wolf biologist and park ranger at either Yellowstone, Denali, and/or North Cascades NP).

Chances are, nobody will care at all about this post, so I suppose I'll just go hide in a corner...unnoticed....
Wonder Wolf is AWESOME, and if you disagree, DEAL WITH IT!!!

Weird answer, but I'm thankful for monstercat. If I hadn't stumbled upon them in 2013, and realized how much I loved electronic music and DnB, I would I've probably continued to (painfully) sit through all of the random christian music my mom likes to play everywhere she goes, as well as the "popular radio music"
