This Friday after work I decided to go to out for Happy Hour. Some of my dearest friends are always asking me if I want to go out for a drink and the saddest thing is I never really want to go. I just don't enjoy standing around listening to music that is way to loud. Damn, I am getting old. Also, trying to get to the bar for a drink is like trying to navigate a corn maze on a Saturday afternoon in Marilla.
I really do love spending time with my friends. I love sitting down with a nice glass of wine, great food and most importantly excellent conversation. I think having dinner and drinks together is so much more intimate.
I went to Happy Hour because I know I need to put myself out there more. I wanted to force myself to be more social. I have a tendency to prefer spending time with the kids or sitting at home by myself reading blogs and magazines or watching movies.
I think my goal of being more social definitely has merit, I just think the bar scene isn't my way of getting there.
