My wife got a job that requires us to relocate to San Diego. We have never lived there and know little about the city. We are planning to rent. We stayed in a hotel in little Italy and really loved the vibe there, but it’s too expensive for us. Are there other neighborhoods with similar vibes - restaurants, bars, lively, good for walking, clean, safe, young, diverse and accessible that are more affordable? Please share recommendations. How much should we reasonably budget to rent a 2bd/2bath?
Thoughts on Air Europa? Looking at a flight that would use KLM to get from the US to Europe then Air Europa for a 2hr flight to my destination. Price is great but I worry that with the horrible reviews and non-refundable tickets, it would be just my luck to end up like people in the reviews stranded after a last minute cancellation or some other bs.
Are there any restaurant/hotel people here?
What are your thoughts on domestic family air travel this summer? Planning to fly to Naples, FL for two weeks in July to stay at a family member’s empty second home. There is a pool that the kids can swim in everyday, which we think is so needed. I’m conflicted bc on one hand I think airlines are being very good about enforcing rules so people feel comfortable flying, and I also want some fun for the kids before the fall comes and we potentially go back into a quarantine situation.

How do you get over not being at your old weight or know that your new weight IS the weight you’re supposed to be? Throughout my early-mid 20s, I was 132-142, only attaining the lower end w/unhealthy dieting habits and excessive exercise. Due to work travel/vacay/holiday gains I could never shed, and probably genetics/aging, my new norm in my late 20s has been 142-152. More in comments.

Pre-partner level (AP / Principal) at MBB — have failed the partner promotion and being asked to stick around for at least another 6-12 months as the firm believes in my potential (but of course no guarantee to make it). Gutted for not having been promoted despite the strong traction built.
