This is a very big week for lots of students at West Virginia University, because graduation is on Saturday! For me, this means lots of work for me at my School of Pharmacy job. I didn’t really know anything about pharmacy, or pharmacy school before I started this job but now I’m pretty much an expert. Okay, not really, but I can stuff a graduation envelope and type 84 graduating names like nobody’s business. I love being busy and feeling like I’m needed. Maybe it’s the type A personality or the aptly diagnosed ESFJ “Provider” personality that makes me this way, but I love helping people. Helping to make sure someone gets their oath of a pharmacist in their graduation packet may seem futile for you, but I’m thankful for the chance.
Dramatic Needs reaches out a helping hand...
Everyone has different things that they need in life, but universally we all need love and glue. Laugh, but it’s true. Needing love is pretty obvious, but if you think about it I bet there have been several times in your life when you wished you had some glue and you didn’t. The non-profit Kids In Need Foundation works to provide both for school kids across our nation. Since 1995, KINF has been giving away free school supplies to students who need them to be successful in class. They have three main programs they use to get these gratis supplies to students and teachers. They have resources centers where teachers can shop for free to get the supplies they need for their classroom, teachers are also awarded grants through KINF to provide new and exciting learning opportunities, and lastly school boxes with supplies are distributed to kids K-8 by corporate sponsors. I think KINF needs a round of applause! School supplies are a very concrete and tangible need that school kids have, but hotties like Hayden Christensen and Josh Harnett believe that kids also need drama. Not the reality-show-make-an-ass of yourself kind either. Dramatic Need is a charity that sends local and international actors, musicians, and artists to South Africa and Rwanda to host creative arts workshops for underprivileged kids. Music, art, and drama can provide an outlet for theses African children to better cope with poverty, hunger, and disease. Almost 5,000 children are reached in 19 different schools because of the hard work KINF and its volunteers provide. Most people should still stick with the saying, “Save the drama fo yo momma”, but these kids can be as dramatic as they like!

So here’s to you needed! You are that emotion that reminds us that if we weren’t around, there would be some sad people. It could be our boss, our kids, our spouse, or even our parents who makes us feel this way. I actually love feeling this way because it is usually accompanied with feeling loved and wanted; two other great feelings. You may not be an emotion that I experience on a daily basis, but thankfully, you always show up when I need an ego boost.
