My friend has been participating on the website Postcrossing where you exchange postcards with other members around the world. To receive a postcard you must have sent one that was received and registered on the site, this way there is better participation. The website will give you a random member’s mailing address…
There are a ridiculous number of tornado watches and warnings tonight. Basically all of Pennsylvania is under a tornado watch tonight, with a reported tornado in Scranton.
What are some weird things you believed as a child that you essentially came up with on your own? Active imagination? Just weird kid logic?
I’m in my late 20s but there are still weird moments where I’m like, “Wow, this feels like real adulthood.” Like being surprised when I got approved with a nice credit line for a hard to get credit card but then realizing “oh yeah, I’ve been making payments in time for several years with my starter card, loans, and…
Does anyone have suggestions for bridesmaids gifts? I was thinking of getting them curated giftboxes like on FoxBox but it feels kind of limited. At the same time I am also burnt out and the idea of going out and going to multiple stores to assemble gifts is also exhausting.
So we live in an apartment complex and obviously from time to time we will hear our neighbors. I think we’re pretty tolerant of noise in general.

Do you have any holiday music that is specific to your city or region? This morning on my way to work I was listening to WXPN which is a local Philadelphia radio station that plays a lot of independent music. This morning they played a new single by locals Roberta Faceplant and Drew Parker called Merry Grittmas, for…
How is everyone tonight? It’s a dreary rainy weekend in the Philly Metro Area.
My current company will pay for further education 100% as long as it is relevant to your job, you earn a certain grade, and that you stay at the company for a proportional amount of time afterwards.
Hi all. What is on your plate this Sunday?
So every now and then I struggle with becoming fixated on death and my anxiety surrounding it. I first had anxiety about death when I was about 5 or 6 which was prompted by the child’s prayer Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep which made me afraid of dying in my sleep and an uncertainty of what happens after you die.
I just came across this YouTuber, Sam Johnson, who is a vocal teacher. I’m not a singer but I do have some musical background so I’ve found a lot of his constructive critiques/reactions really interesting and thought I would share.
Today I canvassed for my district’s Democratic candidate for House representative. Overall it was fine, it was my first time volunteering for a campaign. I live in a very conservative area that has been written off as a given for Republicans candidates previously.
There was a major workplace shooting in my hometown today. A woman shot multiple people at a RiteAid Distribution center in Aberdeen, MD. 3 reported fatalities, multiple injuries, the shooter is in critical condition but still alive as of this post.
My Twitter has been overwhelmed with whatever the current political headline is lately and I’d like to diversify my feed a bit. What non-political non-news accounts do you recommend?
It seems quiet here today so I thought I’d put up an open thread. How is everyone’s day going?
