I always meet new people and I like this because I'm so sociable.
When I go to a place I meet people and talk to them

I don´t meet people as frequently as I woud like, because of my job, routine, daily life, etc. But when I meet new people I enjoy it a lot, to have other kind of conversations, It´s exciting!!!

I meet new people each month because I am in an online school, so meeting people is part of my day.
