Now what???

Today, after I went to the movies by myself, I stopped by Ross...again. This makes three times since Sunday. I've also been to Target twice, Pier 1, Trader Joes, Walgreens, and Radio Shack. That's what I've done for the last three days in my efforts to not bore myself to death. Today, I remembered that I needed coasters. It was imperative that I get them now because who knows when a water ring will appear on my new coffee table and then I'd be really pissed that I didn't use a coaster. This impromptu trip killed almost 45 minutes and also netted me a nice welcome mat and some stainless steel containers for the counter top. Score! I think the reason I feel so bored is because I know that if I felt like hanging out with some friends back home or doing some of the things I normally do, I can't. If I was back in L.A. I very well might not be doing much of anything but the difference is I could if I wanted to.

I'm going to have to figure out this whole Tucson living thing in order not to drive myself crazy. I am definitely out recruiting friends and maybe even a date or two if I want to be really bold. I doubt that one though so I will settle for a buddy or two who likes to watch trashy reality t.v. and go out to eat every once in a while. I'm also going to try and volunteer somewhere. I already attempted to help serve food on Thanksgiving but can you believe that I can't find anywhere that needs help? I was so bummed. I did find a place that is still looking for people to donate frozen pies but that doesn't really do much for helping me feel like I am spreading a little joy in the community, nor does it kill any time. I can't even attempt to bake a pie...so basically I get nothing out of it. (I know, I know--totally the spirit of Thanksgiving). How rude of all those people with family to spend time with to volunteer and take the opportunity away from me when they should know I won't be able to be with my family. Ughhh. Some people, I tell ya.

Hi Brianna...I found your blog by way of Jasmine's...welcome (back) to Tucson! I'd love to give you some suggestions about what to do for fun here, but I don't think that much has changed since your time at UA. Too bad that the Bachelor ended...that was keeping me entertained one night a week. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and let you know that we're glad to have you here...even if it is temporary. :)

A lot has changed since I went to school here...but I think it mainly has to do with the fact that all my friends moved away! I'd love to hear some suggestions though, that would be fantastic! missbri@gmail.com. Thanks for saying hi!
