It’s funny how our lives lives go through cycles, this time last year my life and my community consisted of hudreds of through hikers and through hiking blog readers. Some of that is still a part of my life, i may not be a through hiker but i am a hiker. But now i am back in Oregon and my life consists of going to work, working out, hanging at home with my dog and the occasional date. Yes i am part of the running community and am becoming part of the triathlon community but i am very much alone up here.
Don’t worry this is not a pity party post.
But really, none of my immediate family is here, i have no close friends here. The one wonderful woman i hung out with on a regular basis moved to the other side of the country. I am averaging seeing 1 other woman and her fiance about once every other month. But that is it. So it’s time to take the bull by the horns.
I have made exercise a priority and now meeting people will be as well.
I have joined 2 book groups and RSVP’d to these groups April event so yay.
Also i joined a few running groups and RSVP’d to a short run the weekend after the tulip festival ends. I WILL put myself out there. I need to build a base of people here.
If you are interested in meeting people I used Meetup.com there is something for everyone.
On a side note i got lots of planting done last night!
Planted 3 small rows of onions in this 10 gal smart pot
Got 2 rows lf corn and peas in each brown planter and planted 2 potatoes in the potato bag
The bottom opens for easy harvesting!
How are you?
How long did it take you to establish your base of people where you live now?
How did you do it?
