These are not the droids you are looking for
I was wondering, is it more pathetic to watch ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ on a Friday night after talking to your best friend for three hours instead of going out on the town where you know no one or is it more pathetic if you go out to a bar by yourself in a town where you know no one and drink awkwardly at the bar because you don’t remember how to actually make friends anymore until you decide to go home? I have no idea but guess which one I decided on tonight?
Can’t help it, I love ‘Star Wars’ and not in the creepy obsessed way that happens to pre-pubescent boys but the ‘Man, this is a good freaking movie and it’s a hell of a fun watch’ way.
First thing on the agenda: playing in a concert band because I really do miss playing my flute…a lot. And looks like I found a viable candidate…Nashville Community Concert Band. Sounds legit and like something I could do. Huge dork alert, duh.
Next thing on the agenda: finding a comic convention in the are. SUCCESS! The Nashville Comic and Horror Festival that seems to happen every year. I am 2 for 2 right now. Yessssssssss. Another dork alert.
Another thing…find a workshop or something to get the creative juices flowing or something like that. These days I just feel like I don’t have any ideas and it’s hard for me to get writing creatively and I don’t know why. I thought it was because of school and maybe it burnt me out for the time being but for some reason I just can’t get writing. But I found a potential candidate for a workshop…The Nashville Writers Meetup Group. I remember reading about MeetUp in one of my classes in grad school and never thought I would use it. Looks like I could right about now. Sounds like a legit place and something that could interest me.
Looks like I have been successful so far. But now I can’t remember what else I like that can be turned into a group thing or something outside of my apartment. It’s not like I don’t have interests, I do. They’re just solo and inside interests. Like collecting hockey trading cards (which I actually found a few stores that might carry it…awesome.) Or reading books. That’s definitely a solo activity unless I want someone to read to me.
I feel better now. I thought that I would never find anything to do so hopefully this has assuaged my worries. But I am a natural worrier so probably not.
Also, got a job interview on Monday morning. It’s whatever. We’ll see if I even like it. The job I really want, I have to wait and see if I get a call back. I can only keep my fingers crossed.
