Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting around for somebody to give you flowers"

I'm blogging this because I have to record this down. There's tons of other things which I should be jotting down for memory sake as well, but this triumphs all others.
My course manager from my polytechnic, he has redefined the meaning of 'going an extra mile for a student.' I actually approached him two weeks ago, to ask if he could write for me a recommendation letter as it would be of great help for my enrollment in unis. I asked around, and the norm - if the student actually has such letters, they will probably have about max two of em. And since my grades are drooping on the lower side, I thought having a bigger quantity and getting a letter from a higher authority would be very helpful. So i asked him if he could assist me in pushing my credentials up a little, and he said yes despite his crazy working and traveling schedules. Am very thankful for that. We actually wanted to arrange a date where I could go back to school to collect it from his office, but plans all fell thru because I am working full time now, and it would clash with my working hours.
Guess what my course manager actually did?
He came all the way to my house and gave me my recommendation letters after his work in school.
You know mostly after work, I will be so lethargic I just want to rot at home, to recharge and have nothing to do. But he came all the way to give me my recommendation letters! He could have easily mailed it, but he just wanted to make sure that I got it on time, and it arrives safely in my hands because he knows how much it means to me.
I am still in pleasant shock with this act of kindness :)
