You never know when and where you’re going to make new friends; on the train, at a party or even in your building. The other day as I was just getting ready to head home I was surprised to hear a knock at the door and my student popped in as she was just going to have dinner with her friend who she had told me about previously. Her friend had actually attended the local university and majored in English and had wanted to meet me as my student had told her so much about me (all good I hope). We talked for a short time and then they asked me what I was up to that night which was absolutely nothing and so they kindly invited me out to dinner. So the three of us went to nearby restaurant and chatted till the last train. So an evening that could have been me just sitting alone at home was replaced with laughter and enjoyment. And now thanks to my student I have a new friend, what could be better?!
