Ugh. Lonely and Bored.
I spend about 90% of my free time alone. This is in part due to circumstances (friends busy), part inertia, and part mild depression. Help me figure out something to do?→
Yesterday I made an effort. I had two events I wanted to go to, and made it out to one. Both were outside, and I skipped the first because of the heat. And because I didn't want to go alone.
The second one
I *forced* myself to go to, alone, because I suspected I'd know at least one person there and it looked like an extremely fun event. I'd invited 23 people I know, and not one of them took me up on it. Many expressed interest, but none was able to go. So anyway, I went, and ran into one of the people I'd asked who had not replied. I sat with her for a while, but I didn't enjoy myself. Ugh.
I want to make another effort today, but it all seems so...futile. I can't think of anything I want to go to alone, and I can't stand the idea of staying home yet again.
Any ideas of what I can do? Nothing sounds good. Not shopping, not coffee shop, not going to a park. I thought about a meetup (of the meetup.com variety), but there doesn't seem to be anything both interesting and nearby.
