Thanksgiving for Orphans

I've recently read in The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World that people are more likely to be happy when they are around other people. Like in a community. So if you do have friends to hang out with on Thanksgiving you should seriously consider hanging with them around the holidays.

Remember one of the most dangerous times for driving is on Thanksgiving Day. (all those drunks out there). So stay in and stay safe. Also since we orphans don't have much of a family to buy presents and gifts for, take advantage of the opportunity and stay in on Black Friday. It will save you money and stress.

Get a good book from the library to read if you have to stay at home alone over the holidays. Maybe watch some parades on tv or a movie. Stock up on food too so you don't have to go out.

Also remember to enjoy yourself and take it easy. And think of things you are thankful for.

The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World

I am currently reading The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World and I love it.

In the begining it talks about how to need to be around others and it helps us be happy. I was just thinking of how I miss the community I had in college. Especially in the art building. It also talks about over coming prejudice etc. I haven't finished the book yet but so far it is great. And I totally reccomend it to my fellow orphans.

Another automotive tip for Orphans

Just a side tip for you guys.

Rotate your tires. The New ones go in front. The old tires go in the back. When the rear tires get low buy two new tires. The two new tires go in the front and the ones that were in the front go in the back.

This is called rotating your tires. This way you are less likely to get a flat tire. The better tires are put in the front cus there is more weight put on your front tires when you stop etc. So front tires wear down fast than the rear. Make sense?

Hope this helps. My stupid aunt never taught me this.
