Flying into lax for the first time tomorrow. Hearing all the issues with Uber are taxis more readily available ? Going 7 miles
We just started house hunting in the San Francisco/ Bay area and realised we are short by at least $30K for the down payment for the price range we are looking at.
We don’t have a very lavish lifestyle but not very conservative either. Need to make some changes over next few months to be able to save that money.
Post taxes/rent, we make about $15K per month. What are some suggestions to make short term/ long term lifestyle changes that could allow us to save significantly?
I need a new job but it seems that the job market in SAn Diego is pretty abysmal. I want to leave but only to something better. 😩

Hey everyone. My name is Diana & I’m from Metro ATL.
I’m transitioning from the psychology/social work field to become a Data Analyst!! I realized this was the field for me after I worked in a research lab for 2 years & loved it. Right now I’m taking the Google DA Certification & trying to really take my time learning SQL & R Programming.
My question is, for entry level positions would I have to be tested on things like SQL or R before getting hired & how hard/rigorous would this testing be?

Hello. Need advice. I work in San Diego and am from Lubbock. I come from a Indian family, I have been on my own for 4 years now, but ever since work from home started, family has been wanting me to work from Texas. I moved back last April. I am used to being on my own but every time I mention about it, they say that family is important and want me to stay. It’s really making word hard because I don’t like to start my day at 11 am ct instead of 9am pst. Would rather be in Cali. What should I do?

Need some guidance. My brother and I both have had major struggles with depression and anxiety due to our childhood. This past spring, he attempted to take his own life by ODing on designer benzos that he had bought on the internet. It turns out he had been taking them for years. I had noticed some odd behavior (erratic movements, inappropriate sleepiness, slurring words) over the past year, but we didn’t know he was using those drugs until we found him almost dead.
