Checking In

I remember when all the cool kids were doing it. Checking in on FourSquare.  It was all the rage. Do you remember? I never quite got the hang of it.

Now most of us would just as soon keep our locations to ourselves unless we have a particular reason to share them. And Facebook and Twitter have adapted to give us the ability to do that. (They also make sure they are utilizing that data for all its worth.)

Where are the places you “check in” the most in Columbia and Howard County? I don’t mean actually checking in on an app, but where do you go/hang out most often?

Shopping area or mall?

Yesterday I realized that if I had been checking in this summer most of them would have been from a comfy chair at home. As the weather gets warmer the lure of the sedentary takes over and air conditioning reigns supreme. My husband nudged me out of my midsummer lethargy and got me out of the house yesterday. I realized how easy it was for me to let my world shrink.

Quite simply: I need to get out more. I need to have some new experiences. Where should I go? I’m talking Columbia/Howard County here. I saw a post yesterday that there’s a new Challenge Course at Blandair Park. Not sure I’m up for that challenge but I certainly could walk over to the park and take a look.

What are some new things around town that you think I should explore? Or perhaps an old favorite of yours that I might not have visited yet?
