after maybe the hardest test i have ever taken in my entire life (organic chemistry final) and also the test that i've ever been the least prepared for in my entire life, i came home to a lovely note in my mailbox informing me that my wallet was found. not only was it found, but the sweetest man in the world was kind enough to pick it up where he found it on the street outside goodwill and track me down (no easy feat when the only identifier in my wallet was a driver's license). luckily, he figured to call the university, who called residence life, who found my dorm, and then connected him to our front desk. it took two days and it was a huge relief (the "my wallet is lost" excuse for not wanting to go anywhere was getting old and my friends are really nice people and bought me dinner twice). i thanked him obnoxiously on the phone but the funny thing is that i'll probably never know this man's name nor be able to return the favor. i'm incredibly thankful and perhaps a little bit of my faith in humanity is restored as well. we're taught not to trust strangers and we're taught that people don't always have the best intentions... but you know what? sometimes, sometimes they do.
p.s. just ONE day of finals left until i'm back in idaho! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
