My best friends live at least 1 1/2 hours from me… it makes going out after work a little difficult. I do have other friends who live in the area, but most are married, have demanding jobs, or have other circles of friends they usually hang out with. I can’t even count on my boyfriend for plans all the time… he has a lot of hobbies/activities that use his time.
I love that I can do road trips to go see my friends, but even that isn’t always feasible. Money is tight and schedules don’t always work out. I tend to spend a lot of time with my older sister and her family, but then I feel like I am encroaching on their life.
Well, it sort of makes me feel like a loser… I spend a lot of my evenings on my couch watching TV. And not even good stuff – reruns – because I don’t want to start watching a show in the middle of the season, or in case I have to miss an episode because I do happen to get a weeknight invite sometime. I don’t have many hobbies… I shop, but that gets expensive. I don’t really know what else I do…
I like sports, but it’s hard to do that with people (which I obviously lack). I like to travel (stated that one earlier). I like to cook, but it’s just me. I’m not much of a reader, though I do like books.
I think I just answered my own question though… I need to find some hobbies – or more friends. The next questions are… what? how?
