Maybe since he helps me out I should try to push for a day working on it soon.

Today, I offered to cook for my Dad some shaved ribeye with onions and buttered mushrooms. Normally I would put this on a sandwich with cheese(minus the mushrooms) but he wants to try it like sirloin tips I guess.

Usually also help my dad make food deliveries to seniors every 3 months or so for charity. The larger 3 month amount is too much for him(They also deliver a smaller amount monthly). Since I have a bad back and have told him numerous times I can't really handle helping him, wish he would ask them to reduce his number of houses to an amount he can handle on his own. They give him more boxes/houses because he has a van, but I'm sure considering he is in his 70s they'd be understanding if he wanted to do less. So even though I know it will cause me a lot of pain, I end up feeling guilty about him doing it alone(even though it is his choice...) and end up helping

Not really. She's more of what I call a 'class friend'. The people at my table are super nice and I'm relatively comfortable with them (I kind of have to be or else I'd probably fail. I work with them everyday), but the extent of what we talk about is that class. But yeah they've all been super generous and kind. One person brought our table homemade cookies, another went out and bought all of us the same pen he had after we complemented his (it was a really cool pen lol).

So when the girl that sits across from me loved my sweater I offered to get her one. It's hard to explain, but not everyone has access to where they sell it, so she wouldn't have been able to get one herself. That's why I offered to get it for her, and she said I could bring the receipt and she'd pay me back. That's how I knew what size to get

I always let people cut in line if they have less items than me.
Last week I paid for a man's groceries because I didn't have enough to cover it.
I never carry cash, so if I have a fiver in my wallet, I give it to homeless.

The above is a weekly thing. I've never told anyone I do these things until now.

Oh, and I have a card in my wallet that I scan every time I buy something. Each time it donates $2 to the food bank.

Aaaand now I feel guilty for saying so. Like I'm bragging and now it's about me and not the people I help. There's a reason I never tell anyone these things.

I helped my dad build some furniture so he & his family can move back into their old house which is being rebuilt. Made me feel better as he rarely contacts me usually.

Offered to make a large detour to pop in & see my g-parents on my way back from a long weekend as we don't see much of each other.
