#365DaysOfKindness Days 193-199: Kindnesses and Countdowns

There are only 16 days left until I am done work towards my degree. Those 16 days include:

  • 3 major assignments
  • 2 exams
  • 1 happy Vanessa

I can't. Freaking. Wait! 

Here are last week's kindnesses:

Sun, July 12th (193): Dropped my prof a note to thank her for the feedback she gave me on the rough draft of an essay I wrote. I'm a bit of a perfectionist (to a fault - more on that some other time) and have really high expectations of myself and my work, so to be offered feedback on a draft before submitting the final paper is huge. Thank your educators, friends. 

Mon, July 13th (194): Gave coworker a ride to a board meeting we were attending.

Tues, July 14th (195): Shared an article Jackson wrote for Fusion Gaming. He's trying to secure a writing gig with them, so the more attention his work gets the better. His goal is to be able to write full time for a living, and I 100% support his efforts! (P.S. - if you are looking to hire a freelance writer, check out his website here)

Wed, July 15th (196): Donated rice with FreeRice.com

Thurs, July 16th (197): Donated to The Purple Room's fundraiser and shared the campaign on social media.

Fri, July 17th (198): Donated to the Nourishing Potential initiative by the Winnipeg Foundation. I've always been interested in foods and nutrition (hence the half of a degree I completed in the subject when I was in my early twenties), and working in food security has really opened my eyes to just how real the problem is here in Winnipeg. Just imagine being a child (or adult, for that matter) who is hungry or constantly stressing about where your next meal will come from. Do you think you could excel in under those conditions? I couldn't. Nobody should have to experience that kind of barrier to a healthy, happy life.

Saturday, July 18th (199): Dropped compost off at community bin. I can't remember if I have talked about this here before, but Jackson and I started composting this spring and it has made a humongous difference in how much waste we produce! If you can't compost at home, check out this handy list to find a community bin.

That's all for this week. See you soon!
