Met up with Eli and Dan for dinner. It has been a couple years since we hung out last. Eli paid for everyone (my wife and I, Dan ate earlier). It was really nice of him to do it and I appreciated the gesture quite a bit. I will definitely be passing it on!
I went to go get a drink from the water fountain on the fourth floor of the Harold B Lee Library on campus at BYU. On top of the water founatin was a laminated card with a blue sticky note that said, "For you! Remember, you're awesome and you'll rock those finals! :)" The laminated card it was attached to had a quote that said: "Fear and faith cannot coexist in our hearts at the same time. -Neil L. Andersen." It was awesome! Definitely made me smile. This is the second random act of kindness that has happened to me in the last week and it really does make a difference. It reminds you that people are aware and concious of you and finals aren't going to kill you.
I provide gum at my desk for my fellow coworkers. This is purely a selfish act, to make sure the people I talk to have fresh breath. The cost is minimal. Some kind soul place a fair amount of money on my desk to offset the gum cost.
