No I haven't unfortunately. I don't envy the task of carrying a cello around, but damn if it isn't the most beautiful sound. I love the Piano Guys mostly due to their cello renditions of songs.

House of Cards and OITNB will certainly give you that cliffhanger feeling. Modern family is a smart, funny comedy and has re-watchability through the roof. Sherlock is hit or miss sometimes, I definitely have favorites. It's very well created though.

Wait are you serious? I live on Union Tpke in Fresh Meadows!

I love it when people get the reference. The status is NOT quo.

I played the viola in high school! It was awesome being the only or one of a select few in every orchestra I joined. I've always loved the cello though, I think it has the most soulful sound of any instrument.

I'm from NYC too! I miss the crap out of it now that I've moved to a different country, especially now that it's summer and I'm missing out on food trucks and governor's island and PS1 Summer nights.

Which subreddits were you a member of?

I slowly started siphoning out anything related to default subs, and ended up with a curated front page that had no reference at all to FPH. I only knew what was happening when a friend linked me to the blog post... needless to say, I'll still be using reddit for my very niche interests, but I agree with your opinion wholeheartedly. Reddit is no longer the smallish community it was when I found it 5 years ago... For that reason, I'm scared for the future of amazing subreddits like /r/redditgetsdrawn and /r/listentothis and /r/casualconversation where people could just peaceably coexist. I don't think this website will be a replacement because that isn't its aim, but Im hoping I can foster same happy feelings here just the same.

I'm a first semester medical student! Wanna switch places? We're in our second anatomy block right now covering upper and lower limbs, I am NOT a happy lady.

Hey hubski. First of all, I love the name, and fully support calling the circle things Boopski's.

I'm a 20-something student who moved countries for medical school just a month ago and am currently dealing with all the delights and despair that accompany such a huge life change. I have a passion for cooking (not gourmet, just casually!), brafitting, medical anomalies, reading, Tina Fey, and Feminism. Back on reddit the TrollX community was my safe space, and I love people who get my sarcasm and self-depreciating humor. I use reddit primarily for ASOIAF/GOT discussion (amongst other shows!), recipes, and current news. Also, Showerthoughts is basically an extension of my existence.

Im really proud of my 30 lb weightloss from 2012-2014, and that I learned to crochet in order to make my mom the most bomb ass blanket in the world. One stitch is seemingly enough!

If there's anything else I'll add it on, but I think that just about sums me up for now.

You guys seem cool and I'm genuinely interested in this website. Would it be better if I took the time to learn about it in a couple days once all this nonsense blows over?

So is this website largely discussion or is it also picture friendly?

thoroughbredofsin  ·  1648 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Welcome to Hubski

How do I discover new communities? For example, I typically follow /r/Eatcheapandhealthy, /r/trollxchromosomes, /r/femalefashionadvice, etc. Is there a list of "subs" or whatever their equivalent is here?
