A Lunch Date!

August 17, 2010

Day #2 of blogging and I find myself excited to sit down at my computer and share some of my life!  What can I say, I'm a writer at heart!

Anyways, today I was up early (as I am everyday) and got a call from my college friend Matt to meet for lunch today.  He works and lives with his wife and kids in Virginia, and he was my "big brother" at Clarion... it's nice to be closer to him!  So I showered, got ready, found directions online (SO nervous to find my way/drive in the craziness of the area) and left!  It was only about half an hour trip to Virginia and it went by quick.  I found Matt's company pretty easily (phew)... so after touring the place he and I went to lunch at Olive Garden with 2 of this coworkers.  It was fun!!  We discussed work, life and some Clarion memories all over unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks! :) YUM.  It was a really nice time to meet new people, catch up with an old friend and eat good food!  It made me think as I drove back to Silver Spring how I need to get out more.  I just job search/apply all day stopping for lunch, dinner with Matt.. not really taking any time out to explore this new area I'm in.. maybe meet new people!  So what am I waiting for?!

Well, truth is, I'm scared.  Of many things: being in a completely unfamiliar (not to mention HUGE) area with no one I know and, quite frankly, I don't want to get lost.  LOL  As weird as that is, those who know me well know I have NO sense of direction even in daylight.  Just ask my college friend Matt about my fiasco trying to find the Kennedy Center in DC for the John Legend Concert (amazing, by the way).  Call me silly, lazy.. etc but it's true (as much as I hate to admit it). 

I need to step out of my comfort zone and find cool places (which is everywhere in this area), try new things, and not be afraid to get lost.  It would make for a good story, anyway, right?  Starting now, I'm turning over a new leaf.  I'm going to explore the area including DC ( :-0) to see what I can find.  Certainly not everyday, but there's SO much to see and do!  While I'm here, I better take advantage of it!!  I'll let ya know how it goes, don't worry.  I'm sure there will be many funny stories to tell!!
