Things I wished I'd remembered on my first day at work in the US: when Americans say 'pissed', they mean angry.

After moving to Silicon Valley she wrote a blog about her move from the UK, including this nugget on how to meet people:

GO, go out, introduce yourself and have awkward conversations, because it’s better than no conversations (and much better than conversations between you and the TV, trust me).
