Loneliness


Guest Post by Jerold Austin

After graduation from business school, I was offered a job in Greenville. I was excited about my future and couldn’t wait to get started with work. I didn’t have any friends or family there, but I figured I would make friends quickly, as I always have. 

I’m glad I went ahead and got DIRECTV Greenville connected in my apartment, because despite my optimism, I didn’t make friends so fast. My job was very demanding, and I wasn’t able to dedicate much time and energy to my social life. I was lonely, and spent many nights at home alone the first year I was there. 

I didn’t realize how much harder it was to make friends when you are working, than when you are a student. No matter how hard a student works, you are always in some kid of social setting, like a class or a library. When you go to work every day, people are already entrenched in their lives, and many of them could care less about meeting new people.

Green Zone

Looks like Matt Damon
Is stuck in a movie rut
He should be re-Bourne
