Do you remember when I made New Years Resolutions and I used to revisit them every month to see how I was doing?
Yeah, me too….
Anyway, I do rembember that one of my NYRs this year was to try to make some new friends. I’ve been kind of lonely and I really needed to push myself outside of my comfort zone if I wanted to meet some new people.
This week has been FULL of meeting new people, and guess what? I didn’t fart, curse or cry in front of any of them!
okay, that’s a lie and none of them may want to hang out with me again, but at least I tried!
My first attempt this week was meeting a friend from the YouTube channel that The Boss is a part of. We took a short road trip to meet this mom and daughter combo and I have to say that they were some of the sweetest people I have ever met. You know those genuinely kind people that just make you smile? I know, it’s a rarity to find them in the wild, but somehow, I did it.
We enjoyed a fantastic meal, well, they enjoyed it, I inhaled mine…like a lady… and then we took the girls to the mall and then aquarium. We spent all day with them and they even said they wanted to do it again. I know, I was sure that they would get in their car and peel out of the parking lot after having spent upwards of 5 hours with me.
Monday night I had dinner with another new potential friend.
This whole situation is kind of like dating. I met the Sunday new people online, Monday’s date was set up by The Boss.
She agreed to meet me for Mexican, which basically made me love her already. Then I went all kinds of dork on her by breaking out the icebreaker questions that I had in my purse.
Yeah, I’m totally serious about that.
It was a little weird but actually kind of fun. I think I need to take these questions with me everywhere. I didn’t ask her to take her picture with me because I really like this one and I didn’t want to scare her away too quickly. I’m a little bummed that I haven’t heard from her since that night, but I don’t wanna come off as a stalker. I’ll give it until tomorrow before I start driving by her house.
Last night, I had another group date, this time arranged by none other than Midget Wrestler. I met two more really nice people and I am starting to think that maybe the world isn’t entirely full of ass hats.
We sat on the patio, drank sangria and got drunk on tapas.
Then the night got really interesting.
I got a psychic reading. From a psychic. Like crystal balls and tarot cards.
No, I am not going to tell you what she said, but there were some things that surprised me. She knew where I lived, how many kids I had and she knew far too much about things that have been going on in my life over the past year. I am still digesting all of the information (or maybe all of the fried goat cheese) but I can tell you that today is the first day in a long time that I feel relaxed. Kind of like all of the tension and stress has been vacuumed right out of my brain.
Maybe I will do a full Resolution Wrap Up next month.Then again, it’s me and I admit that I haven’t even looked at my list in ages. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?
So, sound off: Have you ever been to a psychic?
How do grownups make new friends? Is it too soon to call Mexican food girl?
