keep in touch

Filed under: dates — by heatherdc @ 11:08 pm

I have two dates this week.

An old friend, and a new friend.

Friend #1? I’ve known since freshman year of college, basically since Day 1. She graduated early, moved to MD in February. I’ve lived here for 5 months, and have not seen her once. Um, I suck.

In fact, we haven’t even had a conversation since October, when we had planned a potential Christmas Shopping adventure. Clearly, this didn’t happen. Instead I spent my weekends traveling and doing homework and……renting movies? Gah. She works six days a week, is married, and lives an hour away. But! No excuses!

We have finally decided on dinner this Saturday, and I. Can’t. Wait. Let’s ignore the fact that I shouldn’t exactly be planning dinner dates, since the budget is forever tight. Because this? Is much needed.

Friend #2? Also lives in the area, and is also about an hour away (thanks traffic). Haven’t seen him since October, also for No. Good. Reason. I only know him because he stayed in our PSU apt twice with other friends of friends for the spring football weekend. Confusing, yes. But thats the shortest way to put it. Anywayyy. This week the Roomie and I are working close to where he lives, so we’ve decided to meet up tomorrow. Not sure what the plan is, early drinks? early dinner? early um, sit and chat? Who knows. We’ll see!

Usually our week-days and weekends are pretty uneventful around here. We’re tired from ‘work’ or ‘class’, or both. IT’s not technically a job, so we still have things to do when we get home. And when Friday rolls around? We usually keep things $-friendly, which doesn’t usually include bars/restaurants/going out. Every now and then we have a visitor and ‘go-all-out’. And every now and then I remember that, Yes, I do know a good amount of people in this area. But never actually see them.

Gotta switch it up over here. Trying to keep in touch.

Hmmmm, on a completely unrelated note…..I just realized there are a lot of bloggers in this MD-DC area. I know, because I read a few.

Think about it.

  2. I wish there were more Oregon bloggers, but it seems to be pretty rare. Most are midwest and east coast based. Interesting…

  3. I’m horrible at keeping in touch with people too – it’s just too easy to get caught up in day to day life.

  5. Me toooo! Rachel: hm, NJ isn’t tooo far, right? 🙂 ha my geography is distorted, the East coast is so congested to me. I don’t know.

    Sassy: i think that says something about the East coast. It’s cold and we are inside a lot and computers are usually more entertaining/stimulating that TV ? Just a theory. I’ll come out to OR instead. That sounds much more appealing right now.

    Meg: I HEAR YA.

    Aaand Heidi…I’m serious! But, clearly, bad at planning things. We might need a timeline.
