Recently I have started to miss my family very much. Being at school can be stressful, especially senior year, so I always find myself thinking about my family. I know that if I were home they would be able to help me, but the distance makes it hard.
I have realized that being away from them months at a time has made me realize how important they are for me. When I was home all the time I found that I took my family for granted.
So as I sit her writing this, I have come to the conclusion that my family, by far, is what I am most thankful for. They are always there for me, no matter what. Even when they do not agree with me, they have always proven to back me up 100%. I know that there have been times where I have not made the best decisions, but I always will know that my family will be there to have my back.
This month I would like to know what you are most thankful for. You can post it to the BareandMe Facebook page or you can post it in a comment. I know that I am always writing on here, so at times I get bored talking about myself. I would love to know what you guys think. Who makes you happiest? What are the things that you appreciate? Just a few sentences as to why this person has impacted you.
Let me know! Would love to hear.
At my school we have this cafe’ called Rifkin. Everyone makes frequent stops there in between classes to grab something quick to eat before their next class is scheduled. It is a pretty popular spot because the food ranges anywhere from sandwiches to burgers to salads. There are also chips and drinks and candy and what not.
I like to stay on campus for most of the day because I have a little bit of a walk to get back to my house. I would rather just stay on campus, sit at the cafe’, and get some work done. It seems like a lot of other people do that same thing.
Well, I know that a lot of people have been having trouble getting “rifkin money” added to their swipes. Our swipes are what get us into buildings, events, and the cafeteria and places like that. I usually just purchase flex dollars because they work only at Rifkin, where I usually am.
Anyway, like I said, a lot of people have been having trouble. I am not sure if the system has been down or what, but so many people haven’t been able to purchase the food they order because of this problem.
Well, today was like any other day. I went to Rifkin to order my usual plain bagel with butter. I went and got my naked juice and waited for my bagel to get ready. There was a girl behind me in line who ordered a sub and grabbed chips and a gatorade. When I finished paying for my chips I noticed that she was having trouble paying for hers. I offered to pay for her lunch because I knew so many people were having issues lately.
She was so appreciative and told me that she would repay me when her card started working! I could tell she was really stressed, probably with classes and her card not working, so I figured it was just a nice thing to do. I would really appreciate it if someone did that for me as well.
I enjoyed this random act because it really was random. I didn’t have anything planned, I was just helping a stranger out.
I hope that that led her to do something nice for someone else today, as well.
