Exams are officially taking over my life, hence lack of posts on FT. However, today is a special day so I couldn’t resist. Thanksgiving is not widely celebrated in the Russian culture but I am a thankful girl. I feel incredibly blessed to have my sweet mom – who is my best friend and is one of the funniest and kindest women I know, my supportive dad – whose genius inspires me to learn every day and to make him proud, my creative brother – whose ability to think outside the box precedes me. I feel thankful for all of my amazing friends who have been there for me through my recent and not so recent tribulations – your sheer presence in my life makes it so much richer. I feel thankful for Pushkin and Chloe, who are too cute and loving to resist. I probably don’t tell all of you this enough, but I love you all very much. Thank you universe for your blessings!
