What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. I have been blogging and thought about daily checklists. You know the usual ones which you write down all assignments that need to be done, household chores, errands to run, and free time. But the one thing that I never put on a checklist is being kind! Because that way the kindness is more natural. A lot of people ask me why the hell I am me and why I love being kind? FUCK YEAH I’M GLAD THAT YOU ASKED. I’m kind, because it feels great and I am empowered by being positive :). For example, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I hold the door at Goodpaster between 1:10 and 1:20 and on Tuesday and Thursday between 11:50 and High Noon, because I love chatting with people and making people’s days. I love chatting with folks and then through exchanging high-fives, hugs, or cookies, I make people’s days and we diffuse tension! I also pretend to be a flight-attendant or train operator by saying “ALL ABOARD THE GOODPASTER EXPRESS. PLEASE BOARD AT ONCE OR RISK LOSING YOUR RESERVATION” and everyone laughs or I pretend to be Ed Hochuli or Gene Steratore. I say way to be awesome guys and yell FIRST DOWN BALTIMORE to all Ravens fans and we like let’s go come on Joe!!! Then folks are laughing and I encourage folks to keep being awesome! Also its a fuckin’ awesome way to keep up with the ebb and flow of SMCM! Then I feel empower and skip around campus. Today some dude offered me a cookie for holding the door and I felt even more empowered. I later powered the act forward by sharing cookies and sent random compliments to friends via Facebook or e-mail! Also it cheers me up on a bad day!
Also I have seen kindness lead to serendipity and make life worth living. A day is great when a nice act keeps empowering people. Serendipity leads to new discoveries. One day when I was down, I started rewatching Winnie the Pooh and soon enough I was laughing my nuts off and found something to be positive. I started writing one day when I couldn’t sleep and was assigned to blog for my FOM class. So you never know what great thing is around here! FUCK YEAH!!! If you schedule kindness it will lose its fun and be more of a chore! Let your kindness flow unabated :)
Carpe Diem and YO YO YOLO
