I’m going to spend this Thanksgiving weekend at home by myself, with my dog to keep me company. When I tell people this, they promptly invite me to their family’s celebration in New Jersey or some such. But I’m actually really excited to spend the weekend at home alone. I’m going to focus on a programming project. Four days of uninterrupted coding time is really a godsend; it’s a rare gift to get a block of time like that.

Undoubtedly this has to do with me being a Canadian. From my perspective, Americans take Thanksgiving much more seriously than we ever do in Canada. So maybe that’s why I don’t feel so bad about missing out on the celebration. I can give myself the space to enjoy the solitude and time spent programming.
