Remember a year and a half ago when I did a series on this blog called Getting To Know You where I interviewed my friends? Believe it or not, I’ve met a lot of new people since then. Moving to a city will do that to a person. So it’s about time I brought it back!
This series started because I wanted to document the friendships I had at that time in my life. (You can read more about why I originally started the series here.) Those are still the reasons! But more than that, dealing with anxiety brings a whole mess of its own issues and this series forces me to spend one-on-one time with those that I might normally do that with and those that I wouldn’t. It forces me to be comfortable in a possibly uncomfortable situation.
I’m working on a lot of stuff right now, the main one being getting plugged into a city where I only know a handful of people. (The majority of whom I work with.) I want this series to give me an excuse of sorts to snap photos of new people and to engage in conversations with them. Plus I just really like hanging out with people. So there’s that, too.
I can’t promise it’ll be on a weekly schedule like it was the first time, but it’ll be happening on the reg, I guarantee it.
