I was considering giving up this goal… More from my unrealistic expectations of what a friendship “should” be than not having made new friends. I mean, when I think back on the people I’ve met and the interactions I’ve had since I added this goal, I cannot discount those lovely experiences as anything less than friendship. I have laid the foundation for more to come.

I’m really glad I wrote about other avenues I wanted to pursue (as far as meeting cool peeps) in my last post. Now I know where to pick back up with the goal of making new friends. I will have to make it a habit whenever I need to take a break from this goal, that I will brainstorm possible future options and jot them down here for the sake of maintaining a positive momentum. I think my next step is to research and try out different yoga studios/classes in my city. The more the better! Friday/Saturday/Sundays would be best.
I ended up not sticking with scotch club after all. Too many rules. There are other classes and groups I’d like to try instead (swimming, yoga, meditation, etc.) as well as work-related networking opportunities on the horizon, but I’m just feeling a tad too antisocial for that lately. It’s a numbers game though. If I join enough clubs, I’m bound to find one that “sticks” eventually, right? No rush.
Last night was the inaugural meeting of the scotch tasting club I was invited to join. It was so interesting; I learned so much and the people were very nice. I feel like this has already opened up my world a little on several levels. Can’t wait for the next meeting. Till then I will scope out the thrift stores for some groovy plaid duds to don the next time around. Fun
Got a text out of the blue from someone I met at a party last month, inviting me to a party on Sunday night. I will have to call and decline though since I’m already going out tonight and that will be enough excitement/anxiety/socializing for one weekend. Things are picking up!
I was invited to join a club by an acquaintance of mine. I feel like I am getting better and more comfortable at socializing than when I first made this goal. Practice, practice, practice.
My neighbor invited me to a potluck last night and I actually went and ended up having fun. I met and talked to several people I didn’t know and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I also got extremely drunk and slightly stoned. It was like I was reliving my 20s. I was so drunk I threw up in bed after I got home and passed out. I woke up at 3am with puke in my hair so I took a shower and changed the sheets. I’m still drunk now and I have to go to work. I thought about calling in but it’s easier just to show up. Plus it’s comforting to a hangover, I know not why. That was a superfun party though…
I’ve gone to four meetings. Enough to know it’s not for me—not right now anyway. Who knows, but I might pick back up with it later on? I did acquire one facebook friend from the deal, so it wasn’t a total loss. I need an activity with less talking I think. Maybe yoga?
I just created a profile on a hooping website. I want to see if I can connect with other hoopers in my city. Doesn’t seem to be a terribly busy website though, so it may take some time…
I didn’t go through with joining the book club like I said I would at first. I had many excuses, but I am trying again. Feels good to take some action for a change. If nothing else comes of this at least I made the attempt!
