Weekend Recap - Old Friends and New Friends

Old Friends

Saturday, I stayed home the whole day and watched over the workers as they drilled holes into the ceiling to prepare for the installation of the recessed lighting. They left at around 6:00 pm, and only then was I finally able to get my butt out the door. I headed down to Orange County to hang out at Daniel and Hedwige's. It was me, Joedie, Angela, Daniel and Hedwige. We had a simple dinner (I got there just in time, they were done cooking and were ready to sit down to dinner hahaha!), then sat down to watch the couple's wedding video. Afterwards, we rented Mean Girls at the horror of the boys, and thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

After a few minutes of chatting, it was time to go. I was sad to leave because I rarely get to hang out with them. But it was late and I still had to get up early, supposedly.

New Friends

Well, I got up late Sunday anyway, with only 6 hours of sleep. The workers were back, and I had to stay home again to oversee the installation of the lights. They actually did a pretty good job.

After they left, I took a quick coffee break then went straight to mass. After mass, I was told that there was a YMA social at the parish center, so I thought I'd stop by. What fun! First of all, I was able to reconnect with some of the people I met at the Theology on Tap series. There was Allan, who made me laugh the whole time. Dennis was there. Also, there was a girl that I had met at the volunteer dinner a few weeks back.

The highlight of the evening though was meeting Johanna, a Filipino girl who was born here. After being introduced to her, we found out that we had a lot in common. She runs, is into yoga and likes to camp. We hit it off right away and exchanged email addresses and numbers. Johanna is training for the LA Marathon and is trying to get me to run it with her. Yikes! First of all, she does 13 miles now, and runs at a pace of 11 minutes per mile. There is no way I can do that. I'd have to build up to it, but of course by the time I reach that level, she would already have gone further.

Anyway, that made me happy, finding someone who I clicked with right away. It'd be nice to have a girlfriend to do things with around here. :)
