i've recently fallen into the habit of randomly helping people out, whether it be friends or strangers.
i like the fuzzy feeling i get afterwards.
and i'm sure it looks good on my karmic resume.
1) i emailed a friend of mine (who just sort of lost her job) and voulnteered my time, free of charge. she's got a stack of interviews on tape that need transcribing. i figured i should do something nice and take a load off her back.
2) after yoga class last week i drove over to aron's records. finding parking was a bit of a beeatch, but i found a vacant meter around the corner and stuck my quarter in. the meter read "1:00." it took me about ten minutes to walk to the store, grab my cd and get back to the car. just as i got in, i noticed a guy pulled up to the meter behind mine, so i called out to him and told him to take my space since i had a grip of time left over on my meter. he thanked me and i was on my way.
3)i've been scouring Craigslist for a room to rent. a few days ago i caught this one:
i'm a 26-year-old, intelligent, responsible, charming, tidy, easygoing, gay man who has left his lying, cheating, sonofabitch boyfriend and is urgently seeking a room to rent or anyone who might be looking for a roommate. i'll be down at the end of lonely street until the end of the month but need to find something before july 1st. please respond asap!
i felt helpless. i wanted to give him a hand. (i've been cheated on too and i know how much it sucks.) so just now i found this:
Charming, small hardwood floor room with view of the Griffith park hills. Lots of light.In a 1930's style bungalow to share. Now, to be honest guys, it's SMALL. But cheap and friendly surroundings. Cool view. Bungalows built to house actors working under contract at Parmamount in the 30's. Kept up VERY WELL. Great view from balcony outside kitchen. I am a gay actor/writer in mid 30's. Looking for a gay male.
so i contacted Lonely Gay Boy #1 with Gay Boy #2's address and ad. i hope things work out!
so spill it!
what nice things (or not so nice things, if you'd like to make it interesting) have you done for someone lately?
