Plan for Spontaneity
Austin and I are not the most impulsive of people. I had heard of a local happy hour through a social networking group that involves dining and it seemed like it would be something we'd enjoy. Most of our friends live closer to campus and we thought it would be nice to get to know some folks closer to home. At the end of the day Friday, we weren't feeling totally inspired to get out the door and finding this group at the bar was sort of awkward like finding a blind date. Well, it ended up being a late night for us since we completely hit it off with the people we met. Among others, Austin met two young women who are electrical engineers that work with semiconductors. I chatted with a guy who had a sweet motorcycle, a handlebar mustache, and wore a hat adorned with large pheasant feathers. Our quick stop for a beer and waffle fries ended up being a fantastic night.
