Again, not necessarily the smartest thing for me to do when maybe I should be sleeping or looking for an apartment. But no. I thought it was important to keep trying to bond with people and all of that jazz. So, I trekked out to Long Island early in the morning.
And there were only a handful of people there. I thought it was gonna be this big thing. ‘Twas not.
I was still pretty wildly unprepared (as I still hadn’t been home since my interview, and had been in NY a whole week). So, I went and bought some workout clothes at H&M in Times Square (which was still open when I’d gotten out of work that Friday night… it’s open laaaaate).
I was not great at paintball. I didn’t come super prepared. People lightly (and lovingly) made fun of me for not having a coat or something to protect me. I also was bad at hiding. I just kind of walked in plain sight.
I won one round at the end ’cause all you had to do was be the last person standing – and if someone ran out of paintballs, they were out. So, I just basically hid and let everybody shoot out everybody else. Then I came out of hiding and walked to victory – which everyone laughed about and talked about for a while.
It was a cute day, and I loved it! And Mike Yard is a total sweetheart. Yay new friends at my new job! 🙂 (And yay trying something I’ve never tried before!)
