Well, the Oscars/ Academy Awards show was last night. I wanted to continue the traditions, started in So. Cal with my friend Renee, and more recently in Abu Dhabi with my friend Julie. The problem: no friends yet in my new dorm. If you know me, you know that didn’t stop me!!
Here’s what I did:
I asked permission to have a party in our Clubhouse. The building agreed and supplied the champagne.
I sewed, cut, created, painted, glued and prepped for a week. The Marketing department created a beautiful sign that I placed in each of the elevators. I set the TV to the correct channel.
Mark and I went down to the party room an hour before to set up and voila, we pulled off an amazing party! Over thirty residents came down and stayed until the end of the broadcast. We even left before the show ended…and two guests stayed on the “Casting Couch.”
How to make friends: When life has an event, throw a party!
