I like to learn... And I really like new experiences... for the most part. Sometimes I'm a little out of my comfort zone, but that's when I seem to learn the most. I went to a business dinner tonight. I thought it was completely social prior to my arrival. I was excited to meet a colleague that lives in Florida. We talk consistently on the phone and via email, but we had yet to meet face to face. (I was excited to realize that she is EXACTLY as I had imagined.) But we also had some other guests... Two men from another company in the industry. A company that I knew nothing about, until tonight.
I'm not used to this kind of interaction, but I enjoyed it and I certainly learned a lot. Dinner was delicious and getting to meet a new friend was really great.
