i'm trying to force myself to be more social with my neighbors.
so i started re-arranging furniture in my living room. the way it was arranged before, it was very much geared towards my specific needs (writing, desk/couch placement, television placement, bookshelves, etc..) but not really conducive to people visiting or lounging.
my apartment building is a bit like a dorm, where we're all in the same age range, all make about the same amount of money, are all well-educated and all the usual jazz. over the summer, we actually started hanging out and being friends with each other, something that never has happened to me before in Los Angeles. so now we're having game nights and cocktail hours and netflix binges together -- but all at one person's apartment, by dent of geography and ease.
so, my thinking went, maybe i could be the alternate location.
so, in 90 degree heat, i moved my living room around.
and so, i made a pitcher of sweet tea
but, of course, now i'm too tired and hot to invite anyone over for sweet tea.
oh well, maybe tomorrow.
