    Gonna hafta find somethin' to do in this town...

    I am going to need to find something to do, some way to be involved, here in this small town.

    Suggestions?

    Oh please. Isn’t your town something like 50,000 people? That is a nice size small city. I’ve lived in several university towns of 55,000 to 65,000 and there’s tons of things to do.

    We are in the process of moving to a town of 2500 and there’s plenty of things to do.In fact I’m purposely staying away from the garden club, the historical society, the archives group, and the arts Council because I really don’t wanna do that kind of stuff I’ve already done it. Been there done that. I may join one of them in the future though when we actually move there.

    I agree it’s a small town. Nothing smaller than 200k for me.

    What do you mean? Involved in order to make friends, volunteer, have fun?

    I found a friend in VT when I joined Meals on Wheels, and she was my trainer. That one and half hours with her wound up as a friendship--her husband and mine get along famously, and I really like her.

    I found a friend when I brought my daughter's dog to the local park--she just struck up a conversation with me and we wound up hiking together.

    Are there any leagues you could join?

    And of course, there's always church (haha, just kidding)

    See if there are minimalism or fishing groups through your school.

    Maybe, you could suggest to us some new ideas for community participation that you are willing to explore. That way, we could suggest some pathways to do this. If your interests are very limited, the options will reduce accordingly.

    My brother lives in a mountain town of about 2500. He always says it is better to be a big fish in a small pond and that his volunteer efforts at the river park are much more appreciated than they would be in a big city. I would start by volunteering doing something you like. Maybe the town has a Facebook page where opportunities are posted?

    Offhand I'd say go visit your local library. They usually have bulletin boards filled with events, groups and doings you might find interesting.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
