So, on Thanksgiving this year, I spent it with the entire UC EAP group! Although the portions were small, and their vegetarian options were pretty not that amazing, the night was really fun! It was good to be surrounded by all English speaking people, and a nice reassuring moment that we are all in this together. Although I was sad I couldn’t spend it in Santa Barbara with my real family, it was a nice experience to eat with the other Language and Culture kids (exclusive table just for us) and go around the table and say what we were thankful for, just like we do at home.
We also got a chance to dress up so I was able to wear the dress that I brought with me but was only able to ever wear in Nice. Everyone looked so pretty, and it was like we were just at a nice French restaurant in America. Definitely a good night, especially since we all have so much to be thankful for, especially while in France!
Happy late Thanksgiving everyone!
