So, I suppose I benefited quite a bit from having the opportunity to start my newest round of classes this month, with orientation, mandatory introductions, and a slew of people all trying to make new friends.
I’ve discovered that getting up the nerve to talk to people is half the battle in finding a potential friend. There are lots of ladies I can imagine being better friends with (and of course, some with whom I have discovered I have little in common).
I’m considering the step of talking to five new people to be complete. Good news for the Friendship Meter!
Now I just have to reconnect with a few old (childhood, grade school, high school, college…) friends. One called me a week or two ago, and for a variety of reasons, I did not pick up…It’s time to make up for hitting the “silence” button on my cell phone, even if this old friend isn’t always the keeper I wish she was. After all, it’s not like anyone else is “blowin’ up my phone,” as they say!
Bonus: I childhood friend is getting married tomorrow. Even though she is now much more friendly with my sister (who’s the M.O.H.), I can still see some friendship potential! There’s also a friend I’ve been meaning to invite to my new house for a visit… Plenty to keep me busy for more progress on the Friendship Meter – lucky me!
