My friend helped me work through a particularly tough policy argument for a legal paper I'm writing. Her patience in explaining some of the finer details is admirable and something to work towards myself!


My mom unexpectedly sent me a card - yes, in the actual mail - to essentially tell me that she was proud of how I've handled the past year, which has been harder than others. It was such a bright spot in my day, and made me so thankful for the amazing support system in my life.



My friend Eric accompanied me to Subway today even though he didn't need to get food. He was simply there to hang out.
