Make New Friends


Gosh it's been long since I last posted. For no particular reason other than I have been surprisingly busy lately. I spent my Sunday morning digging my way out of my house and to my car. Once I was finally able to get in my car, I left for an all day marathon long Executive Council meeting. We've never done that before- had an extra super long meeting. But it was so well worth it! We were able to really get together as a whole group to make some changes and plans for the next semester/year. Not everything went off perfectly but overall I left feeling positive. And exhausted! For whatever reason I didn't really sleep more than a few hours the night before. So when I got home, Sadie got a walk and I went to grab dinner from Panera (I picked two soups from the "You Pick Two" menue which only proved to upset the entire staff because I guess the soup is more expensive or something. But I asked and the girl taking my order said yes. It's not like I was trying to pull one over on them. But let me tell you, they were like yelling across the restaurant to each other about how I shouldn't be able to get two stinkin' cups of soup, etc! Which made me feel terrible but hello....I asked and they said yes!!) and was asleep by 8PM.

Tonight I have my first Junior League meeting in forever. I joined in DC and then transferred up here and it just didn't click with me. I know it's technically the same organization but trust me when I tell you that it is only the same in title. Like two different worlds. So for a variety of reason, I sort of dropped out. It was unintentional but it happened nonetheless. But I miss it. And decided to give it a second go in the fall. But it took them from September until now to get me on the roster. I also still do not have a placement. Tonight is a big general membership meeting. Which does not even exist in DC- OMG they would need a small arena to host a group that large. I am going to do my very best to make a new friend. Just one- baby steps. But seeing as how I don't have any in this league, I think one is a fairly realistic goal. And once I make said new friend, I plan to get the inside scoop on how to finally get myself at least one placement. Wish me luck!!

I never thought about getting 2 soups at Panera with the 'you pick two', but that's a really good idea - I can never decide which soup to pick! :)

I have to say that as a JLer (from a long time ago)it infuriates me that you have not met anyone new or been given a placement as a transfer. Someone, and I do mean S-O-M-E-O-N-E is falling down on their job. You should have been introduced to a few women right off the bat and they, in turn would introduce you to others. You also so should have been invited to various placements just so you can get an idea as to what is available. I know each league is different but anything less is unacceptable in my book.
I hope it gets better and the ladies get their act together. Remember, even if they don't, at some point you might be in the position to assign or delegate certain tasks. I would so want to be on your good side!! wink, wink!
Good Luck!

Luck!!! Hope you find a new buddy! :-)

I love the You Pick 2 :) As for JL, hope you can get back into it. Our General Membership meetings in Raleigh are quite large. So big that we usually have a couple sponsors and get a goodie bag. Nothing like cell phones or anything, but coupons and perfume samples.

Nice to hear from you again-we've missed ya!

Good luck--sounds like you have a good strategy.

not sure where you are located, but the Junior Women's clubs are pretty great in CT. Less *crap* and more fun impacting the community, meeting great ladies, etc.

I am in the DC league and we SHOULD have a general membership meeting, but the league in DC doens't function like the northern and southern leagues...I hope you have a great meeting and meet lots of new people!

Good for you Miss Crocodile...it can be so hard to make adjustments like the ones you are talking about.

Just so you know, loads of us missed you!
