Thanksgiving Personal Narrative Some people attend parties, feasts, or even carnivals for Thanksgiving. On the other hand, I am kind of different. I love to spend time with my family making arts and crafts. My mom usually makes a feast at home and cooks my favorite Indian dishes.

Thanksgiving is a celebration in which families partake in merriment and festivities, all the while feasting on enough turkey to make my stomach lurch. That wouldn’t be the case for me, however. On November 20th, 2015, I was seated in the back of a 2014 Chevy Malibu, twiddling earbuds between my quivering fingers to occupy my brain. For the first time, I would be meeting my boyfriend, Nick’s, entire family, and I was desperate to make a good first impression.

One thing I am thankful for had to be my concussion, sounds strange right? Well we all have our stories but mine started during my freshman year basketball game. Going into the game, I thought we were walking out with an easy win because we played this team before and won. First lesson, don’t ever be cocky in a sport because it will bite you back. Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast.

It didn’t matter what we did, I could always count on doing something outside, and doing it with anywhere from fifteen to fifty people. Yes, I have a very large family.
