- So are you meeting any people in Montana?
- You know, when you work from home meeting people is the hardest thing in the world.
- You got that right.
- I go to the grocery store once or twice a week and I walk my mail to the post office almost every day, but these aren't exactly social experiences.
- You need to take some classes or something.
- I did sign up for a continuing ed. class on home buying. That is not exactly a big social scene either though. Mostly newly married young people there.
- Be careful with that home buying thing too. Once you get a home you end up putting a lot of time into it, fixing it up and stuff. That's not exactly social either. And then your summer work season is gonna roll around and then it will be a year later and you still won't have met anyone. That could last two or three years even.
- I'm not too worried about the big picture. The more time I spend here the more I find to do. In a year or two I will be even more settled in and have more going on. I need to solve my bored in the here and now problem, I'm not going to worry about years down the road.
