List of New Friends In My First Week in Columbus
Crystal - a trainer at the local 9Round. Coached me through my first trial workout and told me Hilliard Fest was happening that day.
Costco Employee - sold me my first ever Costco membership and told me about her vacations to Utah and how much she loved it there.
Josh at Target - Man who over pronounced and bagged verrrry slowly. Might try self-checkout but I needed price checks.
Cashiers at the local Speedway - Male attendant asked If I had a Speedy card and I said no. "Why not??" He replied incredulously. "I just moved here." The next visit the Lady attendant asked me about my Fair Life chocolate milk I was buying after said 9Round workout. She said she loves chocolate milk but she was worried this kind would be too thick. I assured her it was not and she'd love it.
Gabby - Leasing agent at the first apartment building I toured. Columbus native, said I'd love it here.
Ally - Last leasing agent I met as I'm signing a contract in her building as I type! Says I'm so cool and would love me to live there. Also a Columbus native and went to OSU.
The first three people I met in my YSA ward were named Michael, Matt and Melissa. Also all of my siblings' names in the correct order.
Met my four year old niece's girl squad. They are too cool for me.
The Mormon LDS Doctor's Wives club is my new favorite club and I'm happy to be an unqualified honorary member. How these ladies survive med school and 5+ year residences WITH CHILDREN is amazing and beyond me. True heroes right there. Also a super fun zoo crew.
Watch out any friendly Columbus fast food workers or retail associates. You might make my list next week!
