Saturday Night Contest - Happy Thanksgiving!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, Nov 23, 2019.

  1. Hey everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend! Coming up in the week ahead is Thanksgiving here in the United States, and I thought it would be a great idea this week to have a bit of reflection and recognize what we are thankful for.

    There is no special challenge this week, we just want to hear what you are thankful for this year. Whether it be new friends you've made in the magic or cardistry community, an experience you had performing, or anything in your life you're thankful for, we want to hear it!

    Post your response in reply to THIS forum thread by 11:00pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, November 24th. Once time is up we will select a response at random and that person will take home this week's prize of 1,000 Elite Points, a deck of Black NOCs, and 6 Decks of Purple Monarchs, shipped on the house anywhere in the world.

    What are you thankful for this year?

  2. I am thankful for having my family around me during the holiday season. I have been a part of this community Theory11 for almost 7 years now. I am certainly thankful for being a member in good standing, having this resource open to me is a tremendous plus. Also I am grateful for the fact that I have learned so much just by reading on the forums. I suffer from Schizophrenia, so I think I am doing a fantastic job managing my symptoms. All in all, I am thankful for everything that I have going on in my life and all the people that support me. Every time I sit down to deal my cards I am thankful of the fact that I have two hands that allow me to perform. I am taking out a gym membership come Monday so hopefully I can start getting my physical well being underway. Very thankful.

    Good Luck Everyone!! And most of all be thankful of the things you do have.:)

  4. I am both grateful and thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful for the endless opportunities and support that I get from everyone that is around me. I am thankful that I can spend every holiday with my family and friends and to share the endless memories with them. My dad always tells me,"In life, the things that we remember are not the big things, but it's the little things and experiences that we share with our family and friends."
    This is why I do my best to do everything with other people, so I can relive the moments later in life and remember them and tell the stories on to generation to come.
    I love my family and friends very much!

    Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

  5. I am thankful that my family and my friends are still here with me. Life has been difficult but I am still trying every day to achieve my goals. And recently, I have found my long lost passion for Cardistry and I'm hoping to be able to take it up seriously again. This means so much to me.
    Good luck everyone :)

  11. I’m thankful for a lot of things in my life and on the magic side I have a few too,

    First of all, I’m thankful that me getting into magic lead to the best friendship I’ve ever had with @mohamed__akil we share a long list of things in common, starting with the main passion of magic, we have never met in real life yet, but I know we will one day.

    Also I’m thankful that I lived and got into magic in what I call “the best days for magic” the era from 2013 through 2015 in this time the magic community was active like crazy, tons of awesome great DVDs was released, the marketplace (the wire back then) was also super active and most of my friends was releasing stuff,
    The first ever Christmas wheel, man those were such great days.

    The last thing I wanna mention is, I’m thankful to the people friends and family whom were so supportive and because of them I performed my first show in front of over two 200 people.

  12. I recently graduated from college. I am quite thankful to the friends that I made during the 3 years of my college life. I'm an introvert by nature so it was quite hard for me to make friends. And was also known as somewhat the quiet kid back in school. However, this all changed sorta thanks to the new friends that I made in my college years who Kind of adopted me and I could practice being gregarious with them. That has affected my personality in a way for the good and I doubt without them it may have not been possible. I really didn't expect that to happen. So I'm thankful for it. Hope to have a life long bond with these so called Friends I made.

  18. Well I’m really grateful for having such an amazing family that has given me everything they could, and supported me through my life. I owe them my success. I’m grateful to be studying medicine at one of the best universities in my country, when many people my age didn’t even get accepted at a university. And also, I’m grateful to have found such an amazing community of fellow like minded practitioners, and I’m really happy to be accepted as part of this sleight of hand community and also thankful for the friends I made along the way.
