Meet Me Halfway by JavanMany people complain life never gave them any chances. We are given life we must take the chances.
Its interesting what we can find when we take the occasional closer look. I found three of the books in this series while glancing through the poetry section at a local Barnes & Noble, tucked next to a Norton Critical edition of Paradise Lost. I glanced through several of the writings in each, bought all three and had B&N order me the fourth.
This is one of a series of four books by the author Javan that are themed collections of poetry and the authors thoughts. Each of the books is filled with poetry that is, many times, melodramatic, sounding so much like social media status updates, or those silly artificial inspirational placards that you find in kitchens, though there are quite a few writings that have just that extra slice of truth that leaves it ringing in your mind several hours after youve read it.
Ive often wondered and racked my brain but I guess Ill just never know, why one person looks and sees the rain while another is seeing a rainbow.
Meet in the middle!
Internet Entertainment. Unless you live within a block of all your friends and family, you probably meet with them from time to time. So here are some sites that help with this problem, all just a little bit different. A Place Between Us, on the other hand, lets you not only find the halfway point between two places but also lets you search for something to do together when you do meet. If you want coffee, search for coffee; if you want a park, search for a park. A particularly nice feature is the ability to add more than two locations: I added as many as five and the site kept giving results, though obviously the more scattered your locations the harder it is to find a meeting place not in the middle of one ocean or another.
Use this handy Android app to find places at the halfway point, making travel time nearly equal for both people. It's great for finding a meetup spot with friends, family, or classmates. When you're trying to meet up with a friend or family member, it's sometimes hard to decide on a halfway spot. You may prefer a restaurant that's near you, and the same may be true for the person you want to meet. Meet Me Halfway is an app to help find the places in the middle of two points, so travel is equal for both people. The app is available for Android 2.

Back in college, there were many instances where I'd have to meet up with a partner that I was randomly paired with in order to work on a project or to study for an exam. Besides the awkward interactions, the most difficult part was always figuring out where we would meet off-campus. I live here and they live there, so what's reasonably halfway? Stop trying to figure it out yourself with Google Maps and try out Meet me Halfway instead, which determines the exact midway point between two points. The app was first introduced on Reddit , and since the dev Jonathan Nakhla has been very active in listening to constructive criticism, the app has grown leaps and bounds since its initial release. Even with the flurry of updates the app has seen, it's still in beta and has certain limitations. For example, you can only input in two locations, and specifying a particular driving route is not an option.
