I know I have been kinda MIA for a while, but I have a few excuses (I know, I know - that is all they are, excuses - I could have posted had I really wanted to). Anyway, I was in Utah this last week on vacation before the week from hell here at work. I was so shocked I actually got to take a week off and I didn't get any calls from work or anything. It was amazing! And I realized a few things. One is that I need something new. I spent time with some family (which was great and I didn't see enough of them) and I spent some time with some friends (ditto the above parenthetical comment) and I made some new friends. No one that I will be new best friends with, or anyone that I will date or anything like that, but just new friends. People I liked spending time with and felt comfortable around after only a few moments of meeting them - and that hasn't happened in a long time. I haven 't met anyone new in a long time that I just felt so comfortable with that it was like I could chill with them forever. And maybe that feeling would have gone away, but that isn't the point is it? The point is that I miss meeting people and feeling comfortable immediately. But the main reason that hasn't happened lately is because I don't meet new people all that often. So therein lies the problem. And the solution is for me to go out and meet new people. But that is scary (not to mention difficult) so we will see if it happens. I think as I think more and more about going to grad school or some other such place the more I will be able to actually get to know new people - esp if I ever interview anywhere! Wish me luck!
