Ava called me around 6:30, said her sister was having an art showing at Little Stevie's Pizza on Boylston from 8:30-2:30. I got over there around 9:30 and ended up staying for a couple hours. Of all people, I saw John A. (from my high school graduating class) there. Apparently he and Ava are friends. I totally didn't even recognize him at first, in large part because I just never think about him. Tonight I totally felt like, "If people saw me here now, they would understand why I self-identify as shy." I did a lot of silences and minimal conversation, 'cause I just didn't know how to talk to these people -- Ava included, though I would really like to maintain a friendship with her. Her latest idea is having a slumber party (her term) at my apartment, with Diana if she can find someone to watch Abigail. It's good that I'm in a place now where I can just roll with that and don't feel the need to actually nail down plans. In other news, I really enjoyed the college+ women and guy sitting across from me during part of my Red Line home.
