Work unfortunately lol but me and my gf want to meet more like minded peeps! We enjoy casual drinks but not clubs too much and enjoy being outdoors! I think we’re going to “shoot the hooch” (float down chattahoochee on tubes) this weekend if anyone would like to join!

I’ll be there this weekend as well!

From college but I feel that I’ve kind of outgrown them. Kind of want to find more people in their 20s who don’t drink lol

23 and rarely drink, only last year senior year of college did I. Would rather be around people that don’t drink much because I am trying to stay super healthy post grad

I’m having such a hard time with this tbh. I’m from Atlanta area but have grown apart from most of my high school / college friends and feel super lonely these days :/ I try to be friendly and strike up conversations with neighbors but that’s been the extent of things

Thank you 😭 and it’s only a few I was able to truly maintain. I’m surprised myself because I went to college in South Georgia and still kept in touch with my childhood friends. When I graduated, I moved back in Atlanta full time and we still are the best of friends even if it’s just the 4 of them, I am grateful for them.

Would you tell your boss you’re looking for a new job?

My boss in the past has mentioned he would like employees to let him know. I am currently starting to look and interview. If I told him, it would be under the reason of the difference in timezone (which is partially true, most of my team is in Europe and I’m on PT). I tend to think letting a boss know is a bad idea, but interested in hearing from others.

First time Dad and my 15 month old keeps running up the stairs at my in-laws place and they keep encouraging it. Stairs are almost 10 inches high with nothing underneath and I’m worried that he might slip and fall in between the stairs. My FIL is a bit of a know-it-all and keeps insisting it’s safe and I don’t agree. What do I do? Don’t want to fight the entire house full of people about this and kid enjoys it too much and cries a lot if I/we prevent him from climbing

I am stressing over growing as I’m slowly but surely realizing I am a more “executional” person vs. “strategic” person. How do I push myself and change the way I think? Or should I just give up now?

My apt complex has a locker system ($40) for packages and half of the time, the couriers dont place the packages in the lockers or in the oversized room. They leave them anywhere. There’s multiple reasons most likely - apt complex is like fort knox, lockers may be hard to find, package room moved recently, lockers were implemented a couple months ago, not enough signage, poor coordination between my complex and couriers.
