I love the idea of leaving random notes for people, I’ve actually been doing it sporadically for a while now. This week I made a bunch and put them around my campus: In the community bathroom in our dorm, the stairwell, on a bench on the mall, on a table in the dining hall, and on a door in one of the academic buildings. Some of them have lasted for a whole week! It’s really exciting to leave little surprises for people. My hope is that one of my notes will reach at least one person who needs to read what it has to say right then. That would make this all worth it, even if I never know.
