Although I already had my Thanksgiving about a month ago and I’ve been spending these recent days studying and preparing for a final exam, I wish the best for all my fellow bloggers and friends south of the border, and hope that you’ve had a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend.

I know that this has already been making the rounds, but it’s a good one. 🙂
Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others.

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend, guys.
