Look for a place just outside portland. It's still expensive, but ut is cheaper than inside Portland (or nicer/bigger than in Portland). You can also take Trimet rail system in from most cities just outside portland and save money on parking and BS traffic. I love Oregon City and I drive maybe 7min to a Trimet station and then breath/chill/put on basic makeup (im just a foundation and mascara lady) for 25min while Trimet takes me to a block from my office.

Consider Vancouver, it’s about 20 mins away and way cheaper.

Yes ma’am! What are you looking for? You can probably get a studio or a one bedroom for anywhere from 950-2000 downtown.  if money is an issue, consider living in Beaverton or Vancouver, any neighboring suburb, and/or get a roommate! My roommate and I live in a 2br in NW And each pay around a grand including utilities

The Multnomah Village neighborhood is up and coming if you want something that’s between downtown and the suburbs in density.

I’m contemplating getting tested for ADHD because I’ve noticed some signs over the last few years that may be indicative of a diagnosis. I’m only seriously contemplating this because of a potential new job in the future that is much more intense and detail oriented than the work I currently do. I’ll need to pay much more attention, remain focused, listen actively, and ask very important questions in new role. I really want the job and the new pay hike. Is it worth it to see if I am ADHD?

I’ve posted here before about the best way to give notice. I plan to do it Monday, which will be 3 weeks before my new job starts. This week, my judge has inexplicably told me how much he appreciates my work/how thankful he is for my work. He told us previously that he had hormone issues that he was starting medication for. He was nice for a while before becoming incredibly toxic. The hours/benefits are so good, but I’m so scared he’ll go back to toxicity. Should I stay or go?

Don’t want to call out of work but can’t fathom working today 💔. Lucky I’m finally in house. Left partner of 2Y yesterday. Always had jealousy issues (her thinking I chose friends over her, her isolating me from friends to have me all to herself) and I finally said enough is enough. Final straw was her throwing a glass of water in my face when fighting. She keeps begging me to come home and says she’ll change. Hard not to go back. Never thought I’d be 32, heartbroken, and on sisters spare room.

I’m all for empowering junior associates but it’s getting frustrating. Any advice? I don’t want to throw the associate under the bus.
