So, this week I am socializing. My parents who were here for a week are now gone and then I have a friend coming in on Friday. This gives me 4 days to socialize with 'new' people (as I call them) and hopefully make some friends in my new city. I had cafe today with a girl who was really nice (although I think a tad younger than I). The plus is that she lives in the near vicinity of me which is rare. I didn't think that anyone lived in my neighborhood. It is soooo quiet. I hate all of this - Hi, my name is....will you go to coffee with me and be my friend shit BUT it is necessary. We all need human contact to survive (unfortunately!). The sad part about it is in my previous life in the States I was very social. In this life - not so much.
