When I got to the place (very proud of myself for finding it) it was jam packed. I couldn't figure out where they were at, and it seems that they had taken down the signs that were going to say MEETUP.. so I left. I wandered into a random pub and ordered a cider. Sitting at a pub.. alone is something I have NEVER done. I decide I am going to read my book.. why not- Might as well do something. Then this guy approaches me and literally harasses me for 15-20 minutes- and the bartender does nothing. I don't finish my drink. I pick up my stuff and I leave with the next crowd of people to make sure I felt safe. He didn't follow.
I then decided I should eat some dinner.. I go into a familiar place, grab a bite to eat and realize.. I really don't know people yet.. or at least to say hey, its Friday and I would LOVE to get out of my 200 square foot apartment.
Tomorrow will be better. I am meeting up with a few people for drinks and dinner and I am really excited for it. I look forward to building a community.
On a positive note- I totally had an awesome meeting with my colleagues today and we are going to do great things. Love them!
