Day Zero Project: Completed No. 42
A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Give money to a street performer
Date completed: August 2, 2014
Description: Basically, it’s an attempt to pay things forward a little. I was out of work for 2.5 years not too long ago, and I know how hard it can be. Though this one won’t make some massive difference, it’s the hope that it could help somebody. Often times I walk past street performers without a second glance. I wanted to change this.
Why I wanted to do it: Why not? Being unemployed for so long, I understand what people might go through. Though I don’t know the circumstances or lifestyle of these performers, I do know they work extremely hard and there are often some highly talented people. How many times have you passed by somebody performing on a street and kept going or even sped up your walk so you could get by without being hassled or feel bad? Me too. So, in the quest to pay things forward a little, I wanted to do this. And though I am blogging about this for one time — I plan on doing it more than once, when I see talented performers working hard.
How I did it: I was in Burlington for a baseball game. After having dinner, we noticed a nearby festival sort of thing going on. We walked around for a bit and came to somebody performing music. I didn’t even, honestly, think about this project at that point, rather I just wanted to give a few bucks as he was good. So I dropped a few bucks in his case as we slowly walked by and watched. It’s kind of cool to get a smile from a person as you do that, knowing that even a few bucks are appreciated.
About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
