Making friends

I’ve found it really hard to make friends in new places since college. In college, everyone was looking for some way to procrastinate and would strike up a conversation to do that, new classes with new classmates every semester, events, mixers; the entire experience facilitated meeting people. I have a handful of friends here in my new town of Cape Girardeau, but it’s hard work to find time when they have time off work at the same time as I do and we don’t have any unifying events that bring us together on a regular basis. I’ve been trying to use this handful of friends to find new ones, but that’s easier said than done. 

It was also difficult to find introductions in Tacoma. A huge part of that was that I was a volunteer with no money and no reliable transportation, making it hard to go out and make things happen. Now that I have a little more freedom in terms of transportation and finances, I’m looking forward to attending more events, joining more groups, and reaching out in new ways. I just haven’t figured out what those events, groups, and ways are just yet. Soon I’d like to join a gym, join the local arts council, and start having barbecues as soon as the weather gets nicer.

Any suggestions?
