🐸 Simon A 1L (32 oz) HydroFlask (approx. $50): the best water bottle I've ever had, can keep anything cool regardless of the temperature. Nothing ear (1) earphones ($99), good earphones with great noise-cancelling and amazing price. A Moment telephoto objective ($50) to use with my phone.
🗿 Jonah moment's a great company, plus they're based near Seattle where I am. currently contemplating on whether or not to buy another hydroflask- this may be a sign
🦾 Lucian Marin Train tickets to amazing places. I went to see the sea on Sunday.
🗿 Jonah trains not as good in the US but taking one to visit family soon!
🦇 Arr Non-IT: Good frying pan. Electronics: MX Mouse Anyhwere 3 was a nice upgrade since it has three pairing profiles and good mouse wheel haptics. Slightly out of the ordinary.
🗿 Jonah I have found that crepe pans are amazing for sunny side up eggs. good to know with mx master, currently browsing for new peripherals
🌷 Leanne obligatory first post,, hello! this place is so rad! love the simplicity.
🗿 Jonah Tim ferris style question: best purchase of around 100USD (or equivalent currency) or less? I'll start. kindle paperwhite, read it every day before bed.

🗿 Jonah reminds me of this: "The goal of adulthood is to let go of the other possible existences and to make the best of the one. A successful adult is one who understands that it doesn't matter which life you ultimately pick, only that you live it well."
🗿 Jonah I tried writing something! jonahfoss.com/foll...

🦾 Lucian Marin You can bring back to life a thread from years ago.
🗿 Jonah I was amazed by some of the accounts and their histories. It's so cool to see that subreply has been around for so long

👉 Léo #TOTD This is a question that a colleague asked me a couple years ago, and it just keeps coming back to me. If one becomes informed about the damage that our meat consumption is causing on the planet, does it become immoral for one to consume meat? Say, if you watch a couple documentaries on Netflix and continue consuming meat, does that make you a bad person? I don't really have an answer. I think about it every time I eat a burger.
🗿 Jonah I think it's going to be much easier for me to eat less meat when I head off to college and I'm managing my own nutrition. I really want to try vegetarianism, pescatarianism, and veganism, intermittent fasting- I want to experiment and iterate and find what's best for me!

🗿 Jonah Stick with your values. Good things come from consistency, and make sure that actions you take in your day-to day don't detract from both tangible and non-tangible parts of your value system. This works to minimize regret and feel better about the way you live.

🗿 Jonah my most toxic trait is reformatting every doc I collaborate on

😃 Javier Some experience a culture shock in the dorms or the classroom. Expectations are high and unknown. Lectures may sound familiar or unfamiliar. If I had to go back I would take better care of my time management and clear, concise and attainable academic and personal goals. I would not be afraid to say no if comes down to do things that I clearly don't like.
🗿 Jonah cutting down on obligations sounds good for sure. want to aggressively invest time in things I love and cut time on things I am iffy about. Want to make it either "hell yeah" or "no", to quote Derek Sivers

Eric H. Most important part is to just show up to class & pay attention. No phone or browsing. Most exams will be straight forward if you're attentive. Finished college about 8 years ago and honestly found ratemyprofessor very helpful for picking good instructors.
Zero Edge Drop any class or professor (within 2 week cut off) that you think you will have a hard time passing.
💻 Kenneth Jensen Don't be afraid to change your major. Join a club or two, and talk to your professors; they're people, too!
🦾 Lucian Marin There was a public IRC/Slack but I shut it down. In addition to Unfeeder and Subreply, there are the 3 macOS apps which you can download for free. I will constantly improve Subreply because I enjoy it myself.
🗿 Jonah cool, thanks for building this community!
