What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

Sure I will

Today was yet another day at school with little to do, while other teachers were overloaded with graduation preparations. I always ask what I can do to help, but it's just one more bother to find something that the gaijin can do. So I just keep my eyes open. Today I saw the teacher next to me fumbling to draw cherry blossom decorations. He turned to me and didn't even have to say anything. I just said, "Sure I will," and took over for him.
