    I went to Target today and was buying all my students supplies for the upcoming school year and was pushing a cart full of massive amounts of stuff and a lady stops me and says "Are you a teacher?" so I say yes and she says "I don't care the price. I'll pay for all of it."

    11. This person who was fully prepared:

    A girl in my sorority once ran across campus to bring me a battery for my insulin pump because I was in lab, & today she pulled out a handful of batteries and said she carries them around just in case I need one and it's honestly the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me.

    Left my backpack at a bus stop in Manhattan and a dude finds it, calls my number at Starbucks (he didnt have a phone) he found on Hamachi’s vac sheet, then waits at said Starbucks for me. God damn what a crazy good person. Got it back with everything inc. laptop and switch 😭😭
