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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Carl, I agree with Joan!  Splendid Response!  I am going to have you speak to her adviser! lol ;)  We were seriously astounded.  Seriously, WTF?  HOW does that make ANY sense?!  Even if isn't the adviser's rule, Shauna should find out who is the person who makes that decision, and talk to them.  It's CRAZY!!  Just like most of the world!  Thank you for responding to my post.  I am going to tell my daughter that all of you think she should appeal this stupid rule.  We all think it's stupid!

The Flying Atheist, SPLENDID RESPONSE!

Melinda, If I were your daughter I would definitely appeal that crazy internship decision.  Her adviser is expecting her to take a vow of poverty?!  She's in college trying to make ends meet, dammit!!  That adviser should instead be thrilled that your daughter was able to procure an internship (whether paid or not) with a company that wasn't even interested in taking on an intern UNTIL they met her.  That says a lot about your daughter and her talents.  The adviser should also see this as a positive reflection upon the college and their students.  Perhaps a personal conversation can take place between the boss at the newspaper office and the adviser at the college to discuss your daughter's performance.  The fact that the position was paid should be irrelevant.  If the adviser doesn't give in, perhaps you can snidely ask him/her to please make a monetary donation to your daughter's college fund.  Just my 2 cents.  Good luck to her.

Ian, that is the BEST picture ever! lolz

Tom, I suppose we have to 'see' irony to get it ;)

Patricia, thanks for the G. Graffin quote about non-believing countries.

Loren, what a great saying about empathy & religion, and “If god were a car” is excellent.

Melinda, I love the “Before you jump” cat.  Made me laugh.

Ian, no thank you. I like where I am.

Tom, that bosom is obviously the bosom of Our Lady of the Bountiful Breasts. Return to her embrace and the Mother Church!

Ian, I know that illogic is a "given" when it comes to believers.  What alarms me is that The Family is so secretive, and they have so much access and influence with our lawmakers...even members of the Supreme Court.  They focus on what they call "the elite." That's just NOT right.  (I wish our elected officials had enough brains and guts to tell them to just bugger off.)

Women cannot be full members, ever; they are sort of an auxiliary, like women are in most churches...cook, serve, clean...and pray when they aren't working.  Maybe they pray while they are working.

Sick. Sick. Sick.
