I did that! Several times this week in fact. After my awesome Wednesday... I did stuff on Thursday too. Early afternoon movie with a friend (which is another blog post), then coffee with a women I went to high school and a nifty stroll along the Harbor Walk trying to get to the Gillette sign which you can actually get to. After that I was off with twin sis for a quick visit with her friend and then up to Salem to see another friend of hers strum his guitar and sing his songs at the Gulu-Gulu. If you are ever in Salem I highly recommend their Eden crepe-- it was the perfect end to a really nice day.
I used to be really bad about making plans and canceling them--I've gone into the reasons why when I was heavy. However I was still doing this even as the thin version of myself. I'm still figuring out how I fit in... but if you want to have interaction you need to put yourself out there. Doing that is hard for me sometimes. Occasionaly there is awkwardness and rejection, but mostly you get back what you put out there-- kindness, curiosity, humor, and hopefully friendship. Being genuine goes a long way but you need to follow through and participate.
