I also just started learning to sky dive. I started out just thinking I'd try it once, but now I've gotten to the level where the next time you jump, you jump on your own. Some of my friends have said that this seems "out of character." That's why I do it! Actually, that's why I do a lot of stupid things.
Anyway, the new roommate works at this kind of place where they sell boutique coffee and pickles but also vintage candy, the type of place that as I'm describing to you you might guess is in Silverlake, probably near the Trader Joes. And that's where it is. They had a tasting of some new products, and all the employees got to come and bring a +1, so that was me. Anyway, most of the other +1s were not "roommates on planned bonding rituals" so that was a little strange, but all in all it was a good time. The fried chicken was great, you should try it.
