Objective: write about something minor/crucial thing someone did for you or you did for someone else.
One of the events I still remember to this day was studying for a killer physical chemistry test. I was having a bad year, managed to catch both whooping couch and pneumonia (yep, I have THAT much of a loser immune system), and missed a lot of class. I didn't have too many friends yet, either, as it was freshman year.
I was a bit of a basket case (emphasis on the bit part) the lunch period before the test. I tried to study, sitting by myself in the library. Quite randomly, this girl who was apparently from my chemistry class came over and asked if I needed help understanding anything. I was really surprised, people don't normally DO that for each other-particularly students who are usually competing. I said "heck yes" and she helped me through the lunch period AND study period before the test. Without her aid, I would likely have received a C-if I was lucky. With her help, I received a 95% and developed a firm base for the rest of the class. I'm still reminded of her whenever a younger student or student from my own classes asks for my help, I always say yes and spend the time.
