I am currently working on a monster post about the planning and execution (in a good way!!!) of Nick's birthday party, which I hope to finish pretty soon. I do, however, have a paper and two midterms this week, so bear with me.
In the meantime, this week's focus is Kindness Week. I'm going to try to do at least one kind thing for someone else every day this week. So far (yesterday) I walked my neighbour's dog while she was at school. However, seeing as this is something I probably would have done anyway, I redirected my kindness to the puppy himself, and took the long way home. Which felt like a genuinely altruistic thing to do, because he's not going to tell anyone, so no glory for me. Then again, I just told you, so my ego gets fed anyway. Oh dear.
I"m going to see if I can find some opportunities for kindness when I'm on campus today. While you're waiting for the thrilling update, please leave a comment and tell me about something kind that someone has done for you, or something that you have done for someone else. That way I can steal your stories and do them myself. :)
