Thanksgiving 2015 is almost upon us! For we students, it means that the end of the term is also near. I'm both esctatic and a little sad. It does mean that I get a break from the rigorous schedule of homework-studying-projects-classes-repeat, but it also means that I'm already almost done with one term of my grad school career. This term has had its challenges but I've learned SO MUCH that I can't wait to take away with me during the rest of my education and into my career. I've also met some amazing people (mostly women, since our profession is largely comprised of females) at school and in my volunteering and networking events, and I'm really overcome by how many great people are out there, wishing to change the world, one meal at a time.
All that gushiness aside (I'll save the real emotions for my upcoming "thankfulness" post), here are the things that caught my eye in regards to Thanksgiving this year. Of course, they almost all regard food! Enjoy...
