So, here’s the deal. I was supposed to do a whole Thanksgiving thing the week before break, but then we had Kenyon’s Darkest Day, and so that plan went down the drain pretty quick. I haven’t thought of anything new, though, so. We’re just going with Thanksgiving, I guess? Okay, here’s how to make a Thanksgiving turkey, I hope:

10 o’clock list: Awkward Conversations We’ll Be Having During Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is easily the most delicious and complicated holiday. It is a time for family, weird extended family and perhaps some odd stragglers to come together, air out their dirty laundry and express gratitude. Now, this break comes at a crucial time as it is ever so necessary to get off this construction site we call a college and return to our homes and some rough family dynamics we were eager to escape.

The Friday Mustard

Hello, hello. Before you all pack up your rucksacks with mustard memorabilia and flock to the airports, let your old pal Friday say goodbye. It’s going to be a lonely week on campus without you all, that’s for sure. Long, cold nights full of turkey ghosts and old flames coming back to haunt me.

G’day opposable thumbed chums,

It’s the early bird cheeping at you again from down the hill at the BFEC, and quite frankly I’m exhausted. My humor is weaker than my Bananagrams game when I have two q’s and no u’s, it’s qestionabqle at best (the second q is silent, shh.) I’m spent, washed-up, done-in, overall just so so ready for Thanksgiving when I can curl up on the couch, cram my cheeks with homemade mashed potatoes and procrastinate on all the final papers I should be writing.

I think we’re all feeling sick and tired and ready for a fresh start. Wouldn’t you like to start over? I know I would, and I think the whole planet would too (thanks life, and the electoral college, and the whole friggin’ universe.) While it may be too late for us hapless homo sapiens, luckily the Earth always gets by with a little help from our good friends, the fungi!

We asked our first year writers what it was like to be back home for the first time. Here’s what they told us.

  • Ari Tooch ’19

Thanksgiving break consisted mainly of much needed snuggles with my dogs, good food, and quality time with the fam and friends. Although I’m not super stoked on finals, it’s nice to be back in Gambier and see everyone. Continue reading
