Expanding My Circle
On my second day of community college, I had lunch with Yuli again. Only this time, I asked another guy in our class nicknamed K if he wanted to eat with us.
On the first day when Yuli and I were wandering around together, we ran into K from our international relations class. We were at the cafeteria looking at the menu when I heard someone call my name, and I turned around to see K there! He had a big smile on his face and was happy to see us. We of course were glad to see him too.
I suspected that he had a similar schedule to us, so near the end of class the next day I asked if he wanted to have lunch with us. He said “Sure!”
It was great having him with us. He showed us around the school and pointed out various things that I probably would have never known. He was really easy to talk to and it was cool getting to know him. He’s had a lot of interesting life experiences, from traveling, to the military, and so forth.
Now Yuli, K, and I have become a close group of friends and we spend nearly every lunch together at this school. (I’m attending two schools.) I’m really glad I started talking with both of them that first day and got to meet them. They’re both really great, down-to-earth people and I love learning more about their different cultures. We’re “facebook official” friends, have swapped numbers, and all that good stuff! I feel like I’ve known them a while now even though it has only been a month. And I feel comfortable being myself around them, not having to talk every moment. It’s nice. Really nice. K likes to tease me from time to time and is always smiling and makes me smile, and Yuli calls me “Britt” which I secretly love because it makes me feel like we’re close. I don’t get called Britt too often except by my brother Andrew or my good friend Brian, and it reminds me of them too.
So the second day was awesome as well, and I will update you all about several of the other days soon!
