  1. Meeting a new friend for tea.
  2. Discovering a great new tea house.
  3. Meeting a new writer.
Yesterday was remarkably social for me, which is kind of exhausting for an introvert, but rewarding too. Normally I wouldn't schedule two outings on the same day but somehow it fell out this way, and I survived! Not only that but enjoyed most of it.
