And I’m Proud to Be an American, Where I Can Do 1 Thing

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing.

I told a friend I’d edit her resume a month ago and I haven’t even opened the file. I saw her last night and the whole night wanted to apologize. But: I’m sick of my own excuses. Also I knew she’d feel bad that I was stressing out about not having done it, even though I was the one who offered to do it in the first place and then didn’t do it. I said nothing. Not a whisper. But I am opening the file RIGHT NOW and editing it, because that’s what friends do—offer to do a nice thing for their other friends and then put off doing that thing so long that it has stressed everyone else out.
