Julia always meets new people with a fresh expectation of something good. It makes the other person feel good. She meets them eye to eye, and always gives a good firm handshake.
She meets challenges the same way; she expects something good from a challenge. And her friends all know it. They meet her standards as being good people (Julia does not make friends with low quality people), and they have the same expectations as she does.
She meets up with her friends on Friday nights after work, on the way home. They like to go to the same restaurant, and have dinner together, and maybe a beer or two as well. Then they all promise to meet up again sometime over the weekend if they can.
