I live relatively far from the supermarket, so Kat (who has a car in Boston) offered to drive me to the Trader Joe's in Allston
I made new friends at an open market- both of them students at my school. One of them is in my major, the other one is a grad student. We had all signed up for a free event and got to talking while we participated. It was a lot of fun, and I was invited to join in on other activities (even if I couldn't go).
