Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Thanks, booklover!  I was at home while my sons were young and any work I did was around their school and sports schedules.

I sort of fell into the decision to become a librarian and am still looking for a full time position - hopefully one I had a phone interview for which is in the same academic library I work in now  *fingers crossed*  I hate the thought of paying back student loans for the rest of my life, but I knew I didn't want to file papers/answers phones or ask "paper or plastic" for the rest of my life!  Hopefully, you can find something you love to do and can make some $$!!

booklover, I read The Pillars of the Earth...it's a great book!  I watched the mini-series a couple of years ago and it was watch-worthy, but there were some major changes to the story.  Have you read the sequel to Pillars?

I know that feeling, booklover!  I love my work as a librarian, but some patrons can really test my patience.  I sometimes mutter under my breath "I hate people"  lol

We had quite a bit of rain here today, Steph.  Cold and windy.  At least we can assume it is warmer in Texas than in Detroit right now!

Joan, I love the "I'm Sorry" demonstration...very cool and courageous of those people.

Ruth....I'm still LOLing at "the Cat Dispenser."  Thanks!  (I think we have a few of those, but they're covered with mini-blinds.)
