Can't Relate
    #2372825 - 02/23/04 06:22 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I recently left all my friends and home behind to take advantage of a great job opportunity.  The bummer is that I've met decent people, but I can't really relate to them.  None of them has even smoked pot once and they bash on jam band music that I often play.  A few like to drink so its better than nothing, but I think they look down on me when I talk about drug experiences I've had.  They are also into shallow drama crap (usually fights revolving around women) and talk alot about college football and other such things.  I really feel alone and home sick.  There is no way I can change and I just want to be around people with the same interests and insights.  Hence I've become a shroomery addict lately.

Cheers  :beer:

any jam bands play in your area? small bands? cozt venues? there must be a less conservative place you can go to meet like-minded people...

No, I'm in the heart of the bible belt. Only country bands play locally. Most people here are ulta-conservative/religous.

I hate to say this... but if there isn't really a worthwhile life outside of your job in your new home... is it really worth taking the job?  I know it is a little bit too late... I hope things start lookin better for ya! 

Meeting new people is always a bummer before it gets done.  :smirk:

I totally feel the same way. And I just have no idea how to meet people in person.

So true.
