This past weekend I did something I haven't done in a long time. I lent someone money. I lent $40 to an old friend who I've known since we were in grade school.
I can't remember the last time I lent someone money. Around 20 years ago. My buddy is starting a new job and gets paid Thursday he said. We agreed he would settle it then. I've known him a long time and I'm confident he's good for it.
For my friend, he's onto the new job. And some other life changes after he and his girlfriend he was living with broke up. So it's good for me to be able to help out someone a little bit. Some people have offered to help me out in the past so what goes around comes around. Some positive karma for me. It's good to be able to actually lend to someone.
