Happy Thanksgiving & Around the World With Photos

Happy Turkey Day!

I suppose by now most of you have figured out that I'm not really blogging about international politics. I'm just blogging about... well, I really don't know. Life? Random events? Poverty. 

Eh. Doesn't matter. 
Have a turkey:

Don't you think those little turkeys are adorable? I think it would be cute to do something like that for Christmas too, except with reindeer or elves.

Anyways, I didn't come here to write about turkeys. Instead I'm here to talk about things I'm grateful for. Whenever I can't get to sleep my mum always tells me to count my blessings. Last night, curled up in bed, I did just that. I came up with quite the list (okay, not really. I went to sleep after about two minutes). 

1. My brother
He might be really annoying, but sometimes he does the sweetest things. Take last night for example. We lay on his bed and read our books together (Nick's reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer and I'm readinFangirl by Rainbow Rowell). When I proceded to leave to go finish my homework, he jumped off the bed and attached himself to my leg, making it almost impossible for me to leave. I love siblings. 

2. Books
Anyone who knows me knows that I love reading. Without books... I would be lost. Books are just amazing. They take you different places, they give you new experiences. With that said, some books are not just my cup of tea. Cough, the Outsiders, cough, cough. 

3. Smartphones
I don't know how I ever survived without my iPhone. I love using it to quickly Google things, read books, check the news, etc, etc. I know people believe that iPhone's are silly, but I think that in today's world, they are a necessity.

In other news, I thought that it would be fun to show you some of my favorite photos from around the world. I find that looking at these photos gives me a better world perspective (and no, none of them are not of starving Indian children).
