Trying to not be a hermit at work

In an effort to be less of a hermit and try to socialize more with my coworkers, I signed up to attend a lunch and learn session focused on health education.

I figured I’d get a chance to interact with my colleagues and perhaps get to know some new people that I could go have a beer with and all that sort of thing.

Instead of being social, I sat in the very back of the room, by myself and surfed tumblr while I listened to the presentation.

Why? When I walked into the room, everyone was sitting in little cliques, segregated by departments and since no one from my department came, I was by myself. I also don’t know anyone in any of the other departments.

Not being a hermit is going to be harder than I thought.
