So, I finally manage to get out of the house to meet up with some friends, and what do we do? Sit quietly reading, sleeping, drawing, or doing stuff on our phones. Hooray! Oh well, I guess not talking deliberately is better than trying to talk, having nothing to talk about, and then descending into awkward silence.

Either way, the spot that Maisie and Will showed me was really cool. It was a little spot right next to a small part of the River Nene (probably one of the tributaries and not the river itself, but oh well) where there was a small grassy plateau just above the waterline that you could sit on next to the bridge. It was pretty damn awesome. And there was a wall nearby that had awesome grafiti on it. Yeh.

But yeh, comic's slightly inaccurate. There wasn't a bench, and there was a fourth person there who I couldn't fit into the comic. Other than that, this is pretty much what happened.

I always think that your true friends are the ones that it's just nice to be around, whether you do anything or not.

@Mazriel - Hey, I didn't say it was a bad thing! I just thought it was a bit - I dunno if ironic is the right word or not - that the first proper social interaction with friends was less chatty than I'd imagined. It was still a decent day, sorry if I've upset you or anything, I didn't mean anything negative by it. :(

@Plasma Man - That's true. Hanging out with the right people's often better than forcing anything. That's also why even during the quiet parts, the day this was based on was still good.

Let's face it, social interaction always goes like this at some point. But as long as you have fun, it doesn't matter much.
