New Friends in a New City

I don’t think people really realize just how difficult it is to make friends as a working adult. I mean yea, most people have their coworkers, but we spend the entire week with them.

Making friends outside of college, while juggling a job, and just the day to day hardships of having to be an adult is rather difficult.

I’ve spent enough time wallowing in my loneliness, and I finally decided it was time to put myself out there to meet some girl friends.

There is an app called Hey VINA that is all about working women trying to meet up and make friends. It was made by girls for girls to meet other gal pals. Like any app, it’s pretty hit or miss with the people you meet, but I actually met a gal on there this past week, and we really hit it off!

Also the app called Meet Up is great, especially if you live in a large city like San Francisco. I joined a young writers group. We meet on Sundays to have coffee, hang out, write, and read each other’s work.

I will keep everyone updated as the friend hunt continues. But I’m really happy with how today went. Here are some really cool photos!

Roots music & botanical gardens

Hey guys!

Sorry I have been kinda MIA these last few weeks. Being an adult is a lot harder than it looks, as is having a real job and moving to a new city. But besides all that I just wanted to share with you my beautiful Sunday.

We strolled through the botanical gardens while listening to roots blues and folk music. I’m on a journey to appreciate some of the most legendary rock bands of all time, and I figured you have to start where it all evolved from.

My current playlists are filled with Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, and Bob Dylan and the list goes on. I highly recommend it. It’s nice to listen to the origin of something that has shaped our social culture so much.

Anyways, here are some photos I took!
