Being Social

When I moved to NYC, I only had one very good friend in the city. I've met a few new people through blogs and got back in touch with acquaintances. Most of my weekends, however, had been spent on my own since a lot of people I know go home (New Jersey) for the weekends or already have very busy lives...


Then I joined a social sport league. And it literally change my life! I got incredibly lucky to be put on a fantastic team where I literally had immediate friends. I've spent all of last TWO weekends in a row hanging out with them. It's been absolutely fantastic! :)

However, of course, all of the social engagements add up quickly. Trust me, you don't even want to know what I spent over my 4-day Memorial Day weekend. I was here on Saturday and here on Monday. But you know what? WORTH. IT. Such a blast, and I'm developing better friendships! All I can say is...good thing my Dad's coming to visit/on a business trip for the next 5 days! ;)

I wish there were things like social sport leagues in Vancouver. Or maybe I just don't know how to find them.

I feel you! I spent a ton of money last weekend too. It's hard to balance hanging out with people with not spending.

This is awesome! It is always hard meeting new people no matter where you move.

If you can find some good friends who are like-minded that will be insurance for your budget. You can do frugal things together and it won't lead to guilt that you're spending too much money.
