What do you do to pass the time when you’re on a 16-hour flight? Most people sleep, while others read books or magazines. Some watch movies or TV shows, and there are those who spend their time chatting up the passenger beside them or trying to make eye contact with someone a few aisles down.
Unlike Stevie Wonder’s hit song Part Time Lover which was about, well, part-time lovers, this dating site called Part Time Love is all about helping people find their match, minus the pressure. It offers an unusual service that stays true to the name of the site: matchmaking for people who are looking for relationships without the usual strings attached.
Distance learning isn’t as easy as it seems. It seems like I discovered Appear.in a tad too late because I’m just a few semesters away from graduating with my Master’s degree, but you might find this service useful.
I’ve found out about the untimely demise of several people not through friends or family, but through Facebook. It’s odd and a bit depressing to see messages of condolences sandwiched in between selfies and links to The Oatmeal’s latest comic, but it’s happening a lot more frequently these days as more people get into social media.
How would you like to have your favorite memories for snacks? You can even skewer them or heat them up to make some extra memorable smores. Sounds pretty impossible, but as long as that moment is captured and posted on Instagram, then Boomf can make it happen.
You might not be able to write for a living for one reason or another, even if you wanted to, but that doesn’t mean you should stop writing. Let off some steam, talk about your dreams, share funny anecdotes – there are so many things you can do with words.

Now you can take things one step further by making the wrapping paper itself just as special, with PicPaperie’s customized wrapping paper.
Technology has made it a whole lot easier to keep in touch with friends, family, and other loved ones. Unfortunately, it takes a little of the personal aspect away because this same technology lets people do stuff on their phones, instead of doing it in person.
There’s just something about getting actual mail versus email. With the former, you get to touch it, manipulate it, and pin it on your wall or stick it on your fridge for good measure. With the latter, all you can do is look at it on your computer or mobile device, and print it out, if you want an actual physical copy.
You can touch people from all over the world with kindness, but now you can use something called the Tactilu to literally touch people, even when you’re miles apart.
The Tactilu is a wrist device that lets its wearers communicate and “touch” each other, but only on the wrist for obvious reasons.
Everyone has broken stuff. It could be your phone, your significant other’s digital camera, a sewing machine, or a blender – it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you don’t throw it out, because there’s a chance that you might still be able to fix it.
When it comes to traveling, half the fun comes from meeting new people, trying out homegrown delicacies, and experiencing the locale’s culture. One thing you can try the next time you fly out is EatWith, which gives you all three of these in one neat experience.
Pictures speak a thousand words. A couple more hundred, if they’re really good. When arranged one after the other chronologically, you could even use them to tell your life’s story. Doing so, however, will take a lot of time and patience that you may not have.
