Three Things I Cannot Live Without

1. Coffee

I'm trying to switch to tea, but nothing beats the aroma of a freshly brewed pot of coffee in the morning.

2. Friends

Something that I am so grateful for escorting is the opportunity to meet people I would have never dared to meet otherwise. Whether you are a union circus performer or an executive who's secretly obsessed with the Kardashians, there has to be something about you. You probably won't be coming into my university's library -- where I practically reside these days -- any time soon, but I'm so, so glad we've met.

3. Warmth

My heart leaps a little when I see public acts of compassion, whether it is the kind man helping an old lady board the bus, or a young woman helping lost tourists find their way. At the risk of sounding too sentimental for a short blog post, I find warmth to be lacking all around us. I want to help make the world a a tiny bit more generous, understanding, and livable place.
