Let Charlie Brown Be Your Thanksgiving Spirit Guide

You don't have it together. He gets it.

Thanksgiving can be tough, especially when you have no idea what you're doing with your life. A barrage of "Oh, you're still working at that coffee place?" and "Are seeing anyone?" and "You haven't graduated yet?" and "What will you do after your internship?" is coming at you from well-meaning friends and family on all sides and, frankly, it can get you a little down on yourself.

But don't worry. There's someone out there who totally gets how you feel. Someone who really tries, but never seems to make it out on top. Someone who knows how it feels to go for the field goal, only to have the ball pulled out from under you. Someone whose head is shaped like a perfect circle. Yes, this Thanksgiving season, let everyone's favorite sad sack, Charlie Brown, be your spirit guide.
