Ya know? Having a long conversation with a friend can really bring the two of you together. I just went out to eat with a friend of mine which is a rare occasion since it is a large group of friends that we associate ourselves with. Anyways, We were at Taco Cabana, despite it being 2AM. After eating and talking for about an hour we came back and talked in the parking lot for another hour.
A word of advice: Learn as much as you can from those around you. You would be surprised what knowledge they can offer you.
