Today my roommate called me when she was at the store to see if I wanted anything. At first I said I wanted ice cream, but then changed my mind and told her not to get me anything. When she got home she surprised me with my favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's.


Today I accompanied my younger cousin to an all-day meet & greet event for a singer she's a fan of. My Uncle (her father) not only paid for my ticket to the event, but for our dinner afterwards.



After my neighborhood suffered from a destructive explosion, many people came together to rally behind the local businesses by cleaning up the area. I was inspired in particular by this group of young people. They painted a majority of the boarded up storefronts, helping to add beauty where it was needed most.
