Yesterday I met up with Robin Vose, a friend from school, and it was a great time. I’ve been self-training using what I was taught, to focus on the person speaking to me, and ignore other sounds around me. At dinner it was nearly mayhem, with a packed restaurant that was busy, so much so that it was loud. I was able to tune out the sounds that weren’t Robin talking, so much so that I was like everyone else, who were struggling to understand what’s said to them. It was an awesome evening, all the way, and I was so happy that he’d dropped me a note that that would be possible.
