TCT’s The Countless Thanks 2022: Addy Cousins
To Claire Mast– my college trip buddy
Thank you for helping me start my day right. I am so thankful for every time you turn around and ask me how my night was. I would not make it through math without you. I love our walks around the hallway as we push back the amount of time we have to spend in science; thank you for listening to my rants and dealing with my outbursts of energy.
To Lauren Brace– my fellow host
Thank you for letting me join the podcast with you. I am so thankful for the opportunity to get to know you more and grow with you as we learn more about podcast equipment and ourselves. I love the chance to jump up and down in the podcast room. I will miss you so so much next year, but I am thankful for the opportunity to spend this year with you.
To Alysee Calabio–my Cali bestie
I am so glad you moved to Michigan of all places. I am so grateful for the two short years I have had the chance to spend with you. You put everything in perspective and are such a great listener. I really cannot thank you enough. I love every lunch period and walk through the hall. Thank you for moving to Michigan and becoming such a large part of my life.
To Natalie Hedger– my season
Our friendship changes like the seasons; summer we are more distant, unable to see one another often; fall we fall like the leaves back into each other’s lives; winter we clash together and are an unstoppable force of friendship, and in spring, we drift and laze about, keeping up with one another but getting close to summer. I love each season with you and am so thankful to have you in my life. Thank you for sticking with me.
To Mahta Poostizadeh– my foundation
Ever since fourth grade, you have been someone I have looked up to and leaned on. We are wacky and so is our friendship, but I cannot imagine not having you in my life. I am thankful for every Marvel movie we have gone and seen (way too much of our money goes to Marvel), for every TikTok sent about our new obsession that week, and for all the voice memos that are just rambles or rants. Above all, I am thankful for the knowledge that I can fall back on you for advice (that I should start listening to), support, and love. Thank you for being my foundation in life.
To Hannah Levering– my favorite human
One of the scariest parts of growing up is knowing one day we won’t be neighbors anymore. I am so thankful for the friendship you reluctantly gave me in first grade; I hope you will full-heartedly reach out in college. I will too even though I tend to forget to text. I hold so much gratitude for you. You understand me, you support me, and you call me out when I need it. Thank you for eleven years of the greatest friendship. You truly are my sister. Thank you.
