"I was day tripping to Vancouver from Seattle and stopped in for lunch at a little cafe. From my window I saw a young teenage girl out in the cold, squatted down in a closed up businesses doorway, holding a small bundle in her arms. She was panhandling, people were mostly walking by ignoring her. She looked just broken.
I finished up my meal and went outside, went through my wallet and thought I'd give her $5 for some food. I got up to her and she was sobbing, she looked like she was 14-15. And that bundle in her arms was a baby wrapped up. I felt like I just got punched in the chest. She looked up putting on a game face and asked for any change, I asked her if she's like some lunch. Right next door was a small quick-Trip type grocery store, I got a can of formula for the baby (very young, maybe 2-3 months old.), and took her back to the cafe though I'd just eaten. She was very thankful, got a burger and just inhaled it. Got her some pie and ice cream. She opened up and we talked. She was 15, got pregnant, parents were angry and she was fighting with them. She ran away. She's been gone almost 1 full year.
I asked her if she's like to go home and she got silent. I coaxed her, she said her parents wouldn't want her back. I coaxed further, she admitted she stole 5k in cash from her Dad. Turns out 5k doesn't last long at all and the streets are tough on a 15 year old. Very tough. She did want to go back, but she was afraid no one wanted her back after what she did.
We talked more, I wanted her to use my phone to call home but she wouldn't. I told her I'd call and see if her folks wanted to talk to her, she hesitated and gave bad excuses but eventually agreed. She dialed the number and I took the phone, her Mom picked up and I said hello. Awkwardly introduced myself and said her daughter would like to speak to her, silence, and I heard crying. Gave the phone to the girl and she was just quiet listening to her Mom cry, and then said hello. And she cried. They talked, she gave the phone back to me, I talked to her Mom some more.
I drove her down to the bus station and bought her a bus ticket home. Gave her $100 cash for incidentals, and some formula, diapers, wipes, snacks for the road.
Got to the bus, and she just cried saying thank you over and over. I gave her a kiss on the forehead and a hug, kissed her baby, and she got on the bus.
I get a chistmas card every year from her. She's 21 now and in college.
Her name is Makayla and her baby was Joe.
I've never really told anyone about this. I just feel good knowing I did something good in this world. Maybe it'll make up for the things I've f-ed up." (from http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comme ... no/c0hkuyq)


Good share. You're right, that did make up for your sad homeless story.

You'll get off that thing so fast with your dec LSAT, don't even worry about it man. If anything you probably wouldn't take the test as serious if you had Duke to fall back on. Now you are still getting into Duke and you still have a fire under your ass to perform on Sat. Best situation possible.

You can't get drunk because you're not going to be one of those pussies, and you're gonna use this to inspire you to do even better on saturday.

Worm you just have to stay positive and focused. I would be shocked if you didn't end up in at Duke. Chin up.

Duke is clearly crazy. They even WL'd SF. Thats crazy.


Like I said earlier Worm URMs with your numbers get WLed at places like Duke and Berkeley sometimes while gaining initial acceptances from places like NYU, Harvard and Yale. You're going to be fine. You're going to be great after Saturday. Keep focused!

Merr. Finally finished up PT 57. (Was using the last two sections as experimentals.)

LG: -2
LR1: -4
LR2: -3
RC: -4

Scaled: 168

LR & RC are a teeny bit high, but in reality - I'd be stoked to see this on test day.

Also did PT 58 this morning. Blahhh.

LR1: -3
RC: -7 (Not acceptable. I missed #1. Bahaha.)
LG: -2
LR2: -3

Scaled: 167

Still... would also be stoked to see this score come January 2nd/3rd/4th/31st.

did my last PT - 67 this evening, got a 175. This PT was completely fresh to me, but my brain was not (after finishing my day job).

I feel amazed how good I performed at RC: had only 5 minutes for my last passage, the A/B passage, I only read the first sentences in each paragraph and finished the 5 questions in about 3 minutes and got them all correct :mrgreen: It was amazing! extremely lucky or my intuition worked flawlessly.
