What I Do

I just have a few minutes and I have to go meet Superman. All summer long I've been wanting to go to Screen on the Green on the National Mall. It sounds so incredible to sit outside and watch a movie with the U.S. Capitol building in the background. Sometimes it's easy to get wrapped up in the little stuff and forget about the wondrous city in which I live.

So, every Monday when Screen on the Green comes around, I can never decide if I should go or not. It's a great way to get to love my new city, but on the other hand - if I go by myself, it may just be a depressing reminder of how small my social circle is right now.

Last week I decided to remedy that and became the sociable Kathleen that you all know and tolerate. I got a group of people together after work on Thursday for Happy Hour. There were about five of us, we had a good time (and $1.75 Miller Lite draws) and the next day everyone told me what a great time they had and said we should do it again. So, today I sent out an invite to the new "Happy Hour" email distro and we're getting together for Screen on the Green. It's a wonderful thing about life; when you finally open the door and try new things, everyone benefits.

It's looking rather dusk-y outside, I better not keep Christopher Reeve waiting!

I hope some of this rubs off on me when I get to the UK! Great job. You're the best friend maker ever.
