It was Jacuzzi night, and the men from Sophia House (Frank and I) and Sophia House alums (JT), all go out to the community jacuzzi to shoot the shit and drink a beer.
Of course, the main topic is women, since we’re all single guys. Frank dishes about who he’s after in church, and JT looks like he’s got a promising lead up in Sacramento and I’m, well, just hanging out at the moment. But I think it’s becoming fairly obvious to me, that I need to dedicate some serious time into branching out my social circle. I mentioned to Arif that before, meeting people was never a problem. I’d just hang out with people that I liked, and did stuff that I liked to do, and sure enough, I’d meet women that way.
But perhaps things have changed now. Perhaps I need to do things to meet women rather than do things that I want to do. I just hate hate to admit that I’d be doing something more for meeting women than it would be for doing whatever it is I’m doing. You know? Grrr….
JT mentioned that I have to put some of my passions aside for a little bit to focus on this. He got me thinking that he’s right.
I think I have to leave the bike shop.
Dunno why. I’ve been there awhile. But perhaps I need my Saturdays back for this… It’s a tough call. It’s been a part of me for a long time now. I would feel too … normal in a way if I quit.
Other random action items on my list or potentially branching out my social circle.
– volunteer at AACO – some Asian community outreach service, that some people that I know are a part of.
– Dragonboat – again, some people that I know do that.
– Join Team in Training or the Silicon Valley Tri club – I went to a SVTC meeting last week.
– Stop hanging out with married people.
Oh yeah. I’m climbing really well these days. The classes help a lot. I pretty much flew up a 5.9, which good technique too, until the end, where it got messy and my arms gave out. hrm… Tho I managed to do all the 14 easies bouldering routes in the gym. That was cool too.
