Traveling isn't always affordable for everyone, though. But the good news is that there are a lot of great deals out there, and the awesome website GetGoing has a lot of them.

To get started using Ditto, all you'll need is a webcam (built-in or external) and a standard credit card sized card to use as a measurement tool. Answer a few questions to help Ditto determine your face shape and what you're looking for.
Choose your jam by completing a quick registration then searching the site for that one song you just can't get enough of right now. This Is My Jam then pulls the cover art for the song, and you can customize the background and a caption if you'd like.
It's true that listening to music can make any situation better. But creating playlists can take time (and I tend to get sick of hearing the same songs in the same order, over and over again), and relying on an online radio (like Pandora or Spotify) means you have little control over what plays.

I hate it when I'm flipping through a magazine or browsing the web and I come across a fabulous dress or amazing pair of shoes that I just HAVE TO HAVE RIGHT NOW, but I can't find any information about the brand or where I can get them. The obsessive-compulsive shopper in me can get a little out of control trying to find them...
Like any college student (or anyone of our generation living in the digital age), I have a ton of music in my iTunes library – and I'm always adding more. I love finding new music from artists I've only recently discovered as well as those I've listened to for years, and the super-awesome website Beathound helps make that a whole lot easier.
Rezhound was created on the idea that restaurant reservations actually open up fairly often, and uses other people's changing plans to your advantage.
