Most of us have spent the better part of our formative teenage years behind a computer screen connecting with people online, fighting society on the importance of our "non IRL" friends. Thankfully, time has been kind and as the internet became entrenched in our daily lives, the lines between online and offline life have merged. Technology has also grown and it's so much easier to find things to do with friends far away. Thursdays Together strives to make an effort to connect friends separated by distance, because our relationship are real, our bonds strong, and just as meaningful as if we knew each other in person.
Join the Strendren as they share in Stren's favorite film, "Goodwill Hunting." Bring kleenex.
- So how does this work?
It's our digital dinner party. We plan an event like dinner & a movie, find a host, and then have everyone meet up, connect, and bond.
- What do I need?
Just yourself, a device that allows you to get in touch (mobile, desktop, or tablet) and connection to the great beyond known as the world wide web. And maybe some pajamas and popcorn. Some of our gatherings allow for use of webcam, mic, or both- but there is always an option to interact with just text.
- Is it free?
Yep! Thursdays Together is 100% free for guests. Hosts sometimes use Rabb.it, a (free) service that allows hosts to share their Netflix, HBO GO, Crackle, and other paid services. Viewers don't need to have a paid account to watch, though. Think of it like going over to their house and watching a movie in their living room while having copious amounts of pizza delivery. It's kinda like that. Thanks for being so awesome, hosts!
- When does Thursday's Together happen?
