Now that it's official, I signed up for a number of groups on meetup.com so I can jump in immediately. Being in Silicon Valley, you have to wade through a lot of tech stuff, start-ups and New Age-y awfulness. I was afraid that being in a non-tech field, having no children or power crystals, I'd be up a creek. In the country's 10th most populous city, though, I will be ok.
The Non-Moms Club- Lots of clubs for moms, for all ages of children, but not a lot for just women specifically. This group was created not to be anti-mom, but pro-we're-childfree-now. They do a wide variety of stuff (drinks, hikes, charity), so hopefully I'll meed a variety of people.
Bay Area Ghost Hunters- J thinks I'm nuts, but I've never known any ghost hunters and it looks like fun. Do I believe in ghosts? Well, not really, but I believe in having a good time.
San Jose ASL Meetup- This will help me practice the little bit I've learned in class so far. I'm sure I'll be awful, but this is the best way to get better. I've yet to practice with an actual deaf person.
There's a lot more, a lot of craft groups and biking groups, but I'll stick with these few at first. The internet has made it really easy for me to have almost too much to do when I get there. Yippee!
