So. Apparently one of my best friends thinks that I need motivation. And his idea of 'motivation' was to approach two girls who were looking up sky-diving on youtube and chatting about it, and dragging me over to chat with them about traveling around Indonesia.
I'm very awkward when it comes to actually talking to new people, I usually plaster on a smile and just nod occasionally and blank out - and then laugh at the wrong moments. So imagine the double dose of awkwardness I felt when he sprung that particular surprise on me.
So there we were, four strangers (or, as it were - two pairs of strangers), standing around two separate tables, talking. All the while I had the image of a kid shouting 'stranger danger! stranger danger!' at me..!
Turns out the girls were actually pretty helpful and quite friendly, and amazingly knowledgeable about quiet, secluded beaches.
And strangely enough it worked. I'm feeling quite motivated.
I have amazingly awesome friends. (Or quite possibly - awesomely amazing friends. I haven't quite decided)
