Our Favorite Conversation Starters!
As we enter into a new school year or a new job this fall, we are all looking to make new friends. In a pandemic, this isn't exactly easy. We've put together a list of our favorite conversation starters to help each other and you make meaningful conversation with potential new friends. Enjoy!
Hannah's Conversation Starter
Where are you from?
This is a pretty basic question, however I personally feel like place plays a major role in identity and actually captures a lot of who we are as people. It's where we form communities, where we live/grew up, it can shape our interests and our perception of the world and others. Connecting with another person through a home place also opens up the possibility for common ground/shared experiences. Maybe you've been to that place, you have a friend who lives there, you want to go there someday, etc. Place helps us to relate to one another.

What's your mindfulness routine?
The answer to this question says a lot about a person. It can uncover their interests, parts of their personality (are they type A or type B?), their outlook on life, and whether they value themself. My philosophy is: if a person doesn't know how to take care of themselves yet, they won't be able to provide support for me.
