I don’t want to usurp the much-touted Multi-Birthday dope tomorrow, but I think I’d like to arrange a little get-together of my own.
Here’s the lowdown:
I’ve been back here for about 2 years, after having lost my job and being forced to move out of California, and I then spent a good deal of time living in various *!@#holes and being unemployed. I’m going through a painful breakup right now (just in time for valentine’s day!), and I’ve had other problems over the past 2 years that have more or less kept me from meeting people, making friends, etc.
I’ve decided to bite the bullet and say “When life gives you lemons, freeze them until they’re rock solid and then throw them at passing…” wait, that’s not how it goes… well, you get the idea.
I’m trying to look at this as a “new beginning” as it were, and I’m trying to shed my antisocial tendencies and go out and meet some people.
Given some simple statistical calculations, I’m guess there are some other people on here in the DC area in at least vaguely similar situations. And to them I say - come out!
Not that I’ll disciminate - all are welcome.
I don’t much care where/what is to be done, if anyone has any suggestions, I’m all ears.
As to the when. This weekend would be good, but if it won’t work out for other people, I’m flexible.
