So I titled my blog with lyrics from a Bette Middler song, what you gonna say about it?!
But seriously. I am so entirely bored. And lonely. And I never thought that it would be like this. I never thought that I could feel so useless.
A little over a month ago, I moved into my first place away from home with my wonderful boyfriend. Don't get me wrong, I am loving living out on my own(ish). But then there are days like today. Wait. Make that the last week. Because I work PRN at my job, there are days and days were I work CONSTANTLY, and then there are weeks where I don't work at all. Most people would love that. I hate it. The boyfriend works as a firefighter, so he's gone for up to 48 hours at a time, sometimes only being home for 12 hours between shifts. So........ here I am.
Where I live now is about an hour away from my home and family and friends. Close enough that I can maintain contact, but far enough away that it isn't possible to visit multiple times a week. So, I guess this is my question to anyone that may choose to read this:
How do you go about meeting people when you move someplace new?
Of course I know all of Paul's friends, and their girlfriends (I am sorry, but that is just not happening. I am fairly certain that most of them don't have brains or a decent bone in their body). I joined a gym about 5 minutes away from my house, I was hoping that I could meet people there, but that's not going so well.
I just don't know what to do. I certainly can't keep up sitting around the house like this or I will go insane. Or get bored and cut all of my hair off or dye it purple or get another stupid piercing. Either way, not a great plan.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
