I haven't thought about this job in years. I'm talking like, 5-6 years, really. But, last night, I dreamt that I got a call from a current college student asking for a donation. She'd mentioned she'd done some research on me, and she was a good conversationalist, but something was weird. She was speaking to me in a way that she thought that I would want to be talked to. Sorta like, "getting on my level". I realized that she was changing the way she was as a person, her entire being, just to talk to me and ask for my donation. She was very colorful, and used a lot of pop culture references.
At one point in the conversation, I cut her off. "Let me stop you you for a sec." She stopped talking. I then said 8 powerful words: "Never give anything more or less than yourself"
I woke up right after that. I repeated those words aloud. Looked at the clock, and it said 4:07. I thought to myself, holy shit. This is what I spend so much time talking about and thinking about! BEING YOURSELF. I woke up before the dream ended, but I'm sure it would have gone well for the receiving party.
