Few days ago I asked Twitter if anyone wanted to party with me on the 4th. I invited everyone who responded within a few hours. Yesterday 25 internet strangers partied with me on my apartment rooftop. Everyone was nice and great
I didn’t think anyone would respond. I think there’s clearly a need for more connection, for more room for friendships and places to make friends outside work stuff. I think more random Twitter parties are in order.
When I was a teenager I made a blog that about feelings & life, it got decent views. I invited one blog fan to hang out with me and stay at my house for a week (my parents were too confused to refuse). I thought this was a phase but glad to report adult life continues like this
