SURKUS-Get paid to party!
As you may have read, I'm relatively new to Los Angeles. I moved here a little over a year ago from Washington, DC.
To go out with out breaking the bank, check out Surkus. With headquarters right here in LA, Surkus specializes in "crowd-casting". Here 's how it works: Download the app, set your zipcode, and you'll begin receiving castings for invites to events in your neighborhood. Submit to the event and if you're cast, not only do you receive a free night out on the town (your drinks and sometimes food is included) you also get PAID! Surkus goers earn between $50-$150 per event!
Surkus cuts out the middle man, pushy club promoters.
HAPPIFY- a scientific path to happiness
There software developers may live in Latvia, but Happify --an app that uses science to increase your happinss --hits close to home.
We all know what it's like to feel stress it could work, family, money, or all of the above. But it's how we react to that stress that dictates our true happiness. Happify helps re-train your brain.
With fun games and thought provoking diary entries you slowly, over time, feel less stressed out when the curve balls of life come your way. Available online or for iOS.
GADGET FLOW-be in the know
SOUNDCLOUD-that's my jam!
I'm not ashamed to admit, when I like a song, I LOVE a song! I play it again and again and again on repeat, then I play it some more.
To switch things up a bit, lately i've been finding some of my favorites on SoundCloud and then I spend an hour listening to different renditions. Check it out and see for yourself.
