This year I really need to get out of my comfort zone and just try and get to know more of the youth. I’m just some old guy, so what does it matter if the youth think I’m weird. This is something that Andrew agrees we all, including the youth, need to be working on this year.
After the meeting went over to John & Charisty’s, they invited a bunch of us over for peaches & ice cream. It was fun to hang out with people, expecially my own age. I was really nice to hear that people we glad to see me, youth and other leaders. I’ve kind of been in a hermit mode. It’s so easy for me to just stay at home and not do anything. I’m still not sure about just calling people up to hang out. My problem is who would I call and what would we do? It would really be nice to have a co-worker/friend like I had at SCTC that I saw on a regular basis and I could call to hang out. More of my problem is I’m a geek. There just aren’t that many people that are interested in that. I kind of feel like I really need to find some other normal hobby. Something to talk about other than geeky stuff. Just one more thing to work on.
Kari invited me over to her house on Friday for a game night/get together that she’s having. I’m looking forward to this to, hope I can get out of my shell a little. Boy it would be good if some kind of regular circle of friends was formed. Not sure how many people are married. That always seems to make things kind of weird. I always have a problem when I hang out with Chad & Laura, I definitly feel like a third wheel.
Well, another day gone…marching on.
