Hanging out with my friends here made me realize that I really do need
to go and meet more people in Canada. I *love* the chaos of a large
friend group, the strong and deep relationships I get to form with
them and they with each other.
I really like my friends there. I should meet lots of other people so
that I can bring even more people into our group, the way my barkada
here grew over time.
How can I go about doing that? I’ll give pursudo and other meetup
sites a try when I get back. I’ll attend the Filipino cultural
presentations, start going to the gym, take up dancing again. I’ll
focus on my work during the day so that I can make good progress on my
thesis (I really want to finish that already!), but my evenings can be
for fun. I’ll see what I can do with Toastmasters. I’ll find somewhere
to volunteer. I want to meet other people who are crazy about life,
and I’m sure I’ll find them.
