How to be more confident and less socially anxious?

Hello All, I seem be having some low-self esteem issues lately, especially with expressing a fierce opinion, sharing my beliefs, and sharing/explaining my hobbies to others. I have such a difficult time warming up to strangers, that I will excessively worry that I'm not interesting, exciting, and vibrant enough -- I'll shut down and become aloof. I have become withdrawn and reserved -- how can I open up and gain some confidence? [more inside]

How can I now see a map of all my Tripadvisor Saves?

Prior to the new update of the Tripadvisor app, I could open a saved location, zoom out, and then see the saved locations nearby. The new update destroyed this functionality. Is there any way for me to access a map of my saved locations? I like to plan a route among proximate sites, and I don't know how to do this.

Help me find a specific background / screensaver / wallpaper

Around 1997-99, one of the common background choices was a figure walking uphill (from left to right), through fir trees and snow as I recall. Not sure if it was an overexposed photo or a drawing. Very little detail -- stark. I think it was a Windows choice, but it might have been a manufacturer's -- HP, for example. Hope me!

Looking for a trustworthy Internet -> Snail Mail provider

I'm looking for a trustworthy provider of Internet -> Snail Mail services. One company I've found, e.g., is PostalMethods. I want someone that I can trust with sensitive personal information (e.g. writing to my health insurer). PostalMethods does actually have a HIPAA compliance statement, but I still would feel more comfortable with MeFi testimonials. Does anyone have experience with this?

Asian pop song ID

Dear Hive Mind, my girlfriend and I recently spent an enjoyable couple of hours at a karaoke bar in Bangkok. In between song selections the karaoke system played some fun Asian pop tunes which I'd love to find again: can you help? I managed to record some short video clips, but playing these back to Shazam hasn't helped, so I've loaded them online. [more inside]

Where do these jumping heads covered in glitter come from?

I saw The Orb perform a few months ago at Moogfest here in Durham, and there was this really wild part of their VJ set towards the end where some glittery heads were jumping up and down on a black background. You can see it at 59:30 here - then there's some muscle flexing, and then you see more glittery headfae. Does anyone recognize these jumpy glittery heads? Where do they come from? Is it a thing?

Saatva Mattress Long Term Reviews?

Saatva gets amazing reviews. The only critiques I see are that over the long term, they start to dip/sag. Has anyone else had a Saatva mattress longer than a couple years and can let us know how it has held up? Is it more likely to sag than other beds? Is it just because of the pillow top? Any other complaints? Thanks!
