Hey #YYC, I need to meet you!
Oh boy, I really don’t enjoy writing about unhappy stuff, but my blog is cathartic for me and this is where I get to share my joys, and my frustrations.
I’ll admit, right off the top, I’m having a hard time with things right now – I’m feeling especially isolated these days, out in these-here burbs in the deep South of Calgary.
My belief is that this yearning is primarily related to my recent roadtrip to Vancouver with Barry – where I literally ran into friends in places all over the city while I was there. I won’t lie, I actually cried when I left. Barry looked at me like I was an alien. He’s very supportive, but a social circle just doesn’t mean that much to him.
Don’t get me wrong, I have a great (really great, actually) group of friends here in Cowtown, but as I’ve gone on and on about in posts past, it’s not the same… people just don’t stop by here. I never get a phone call from a friend “around the corner” saying, hey, I’m coming over so you’d better have my favourite wine poured and ready.
I absolutely need to do something about this situation. I am almost at the point of needing medication, I’m feeling so lonely. Hell, Barry is going to need medication soon if I don’t find a network of friends that are available on a regular basis for fun.
I’ve got to find a hobby, or a cause, or something. And, now, finally, I don’t feel so stifled with my study-load, so I can actually dedicate time to something fun, with like-minded potential friends to meet.
Now… what the heck is it that I want to focus on?
YOUR TURN: Got ideas for me? Or, are you someone that reads this blog in #yyc, and we haven’t met yet? Speak up!
