Check out the east side. Commuting from north or south of Austin will make you hate life.

Where will you be working? Rent is cheaper the further you get away from downtown, unless it’s near the domain. The east side is somewhat less expensive too. As far as roommates go, just hit up craigslist or Facebook.

I mean compared to downtown/Zilker I’d say it’s cheaper. Maybe I just got really lucky too, actually I guarantee you that’s it.

I’ll be working at Preacher on 8th street. Trying to stay at least 15 away from work by car without breaking the bank too much. If that’s even possible.

How did you get hired, if you don’t mind me asking? I want to go to a similarly small shop in Seattle and would love to know if you were recruited or just sent your resume blind.

Looking for advice or encouragement. I’m 1.5 months into my first job out of college & am already so sick of being virtual. I’m feeling really disconnected despite having work to do. I get anxiety over reaching out to people on my team to get to know them & to network. Everyone’s so busy right now. I have no clue if I’m doing a good job and it feels impossible to make a good impression. Feel like I’m not developing & building network. Trying to stay positive but feeling defeated this week
