Hey San Francisco Fish, I just got an offer that's based in SF (and I'm currently in the South). So I guess my question is, how do you live? Where do you live? Are there any tips you all have around the different neighborhoods or...how much money I should expect to spend on living? 😬

There are tons of neighborhoods with different price points / community vibes / living space in the city, and lots of people who work in the city live in surrounding counties. What kind of housing (studio, apt, house etc) are you thinking, what size, neighborhood type (i.e. high rises, urban residential, suburban)? Also - how do you plan to commute, and will you have a car? If you know, I can help give a better price estimate.

Roommates are super common in SF especially at 26. Would also recommend. Not sure where you work but sounds like you want Russian or knob hill. The marina is fun and there will be absolute smokes there but you won’t be able to walk to work (most likely). The mission is more affordable but kind of far from things. At 26 I would not consider doing anything except living in SF if you like to go out.

For Chicago lifers, what’s the rite of passage before a transplant can really consider themselves a Chicagoan (if ever)?

Other than place of birth, what qualities or experiences do you feel make a “Chicagoan”?

The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

I don’t want to start off on the wrong foot by refusing, but also don’t want to set unrealistic standards. Would offering 1-2 calls in the next month be ok? Thanks!
