It's that time of month again! Time to help someone out or to enjoy a bit of helping yourself.
Here's the dealio:
1. Read through these hook up requests. If you can help out one of these lovely people, email them.
2. Read through the hook up offers. If one of these awesome people can help you out, email them.
3. After someone has been kind enough to spend time answering your email and sharing their time/knowledge with you, you write them a thank you email because you're not a total jerk.
I need a hook up!
I need advice about moving to Denver
I am leaving the great city of Austin, Texas in the spring and heading to Denver, Colorado. My husband and I are planning on buying a house, but aside from a few brief vacations, I am pretty unfamiliar with the area. We need easy access to downtown for my husband's job, but we would like to be as close to the mountains as possible. If you live (or have previously lived) in Denver, I would love to hear from you! I am also anxious to learn about things to do, potential career opportunities for me (Education, Social Work), and universities where I could obtain a masters in Social Work. I also have a million questions ranging from skiing, to baking in high altitudes, to learning how to fight off bears (which I assume will be my biggest adjustment). Thanks!

I am a nursing student in the United States and would love to speak with someone who is a nurse in Europe, Australia or South America or someone who obtained their Bachelors of Science in Nursing in the US and then moved abroad. I would love to hear abut everything from language skills, salary, and work environment to how nursing in your country differs from nursing in the United States and the process of obtaining a job and required work permits. Thanks!

I'm looking for interview subjects who have traveled to notable American landmarks
I am looking to offer travel stories from places around the U.S. of A. with specific interest in those that have had memorable times in Rock City, Glacier Bay, Area 51, Niagara Falls (if you got married there, would love to chat with you!) and Coney Island. The more wild your experience, the better! This series will be in conjunction with an upcoming show I’m working on that maps out a group of individuals’ interactions with these places.

I would like to know about becoming a virtual assistant
I am a full time student looking to make some money in a part time field. I’m interested in potentially becoming a virtual assistant. Do you think this is a good position for a student to fill? If so, I need to know what tasks this entails, as well as what software I should be familiar with. I would also love to know how to go about promoting myself and actually getting some clients. I also need to know what it pays/what my rates should be.

I'm looking for friends/things to do in Baltimore
I'm 22 and have just moved to the city. I have a couple of friends in the area, but I would love to meet more people! I like to read, watch movies, cook, color, and have adventures. I'm also interested in trying new things, so if you have a wild and crazy idea, I'd like to join in. If you volunteer in the area I would love to get involved and help out!

I'm looking for friends in Nara, Japan
I'm going to be in Nara, Japan January-April for a research internship. I don't speak Japanese (yet), and I won't know anyone in the area, so it'd be great just to hang out with some new friends. I'm in my late 20s, and am a computer scientist/social psychologist who enjoys arts & crafts, cooking, travel, photography, and social drinking.
