people need to be social

Happy Memorial Day to all. I hope you used the long weekend to re-charge and energize yourself. I certainly did. I went  on a number of rides and runs and participated in a summer barbecue followed by a midnight movie being projected onto a house wall. Fun stuff.

As of late, I've been actively trying to increase my social activities. Part of the plan is a Thursday night sports night, where I get a bunch of different people together to participate in ever-changing outdoor activities. Last week was our first Thursday and about 15 people showed up for a game of Ultimate Frisbee. Many have been asking me to add their friends to my weekly email list and we even had a half dozen of walk-ups asking to be notified of future plans. Last week alone, the list of invitees doubled, which brings me to the main point of this blog post.

People of all ages are craving social connections and activities. When you feel the need to be social, come up with a cool activity or theme, tell your friends and then watch the party grow.
