That old advice 'Don't talk to strangers' doesn't really apply to you. In fact, at the moment, talking to new folks is both simple to do and amazingly rewarding. If you're at a shop, ask someone for help deciding what looks right. If you're waiting for a train, ask that interesting-looking person what's new in their world. On the job, make chit-chat with someone you've never dealt with before. New connections bring remarkable opportunities.
You know those travel plans you were thinking of making? Whatever happened to them? Don't put them off any longer. Monday and Tuesday, make a plan to go somewhere exotic and then just do it. No sense in being nervous. You'll figure out your way around in no time. And you'll meet a bunch of new people. Plus, once you have your sights set on a vacation, work will start to seem a lot less annoying, especially Wednesday and Thursday. This weekend, someone's going to drag you to the movies to see a comedy and you're going to laugh for two days straight.
