It’s overrated, not actually that cheap, far from most public transportation and full of people who wish they were still in college. If that’s your vibe, go for it. Otherwise, there are so many other better places to live.

Restaurants really don’t compare to the neighborhoods I mentioned, even if you include Seaport, which you shouldn’t. The bike ride is reasonable for 3-4 months a year when it’s not winter or too hot. And technically, yes, Andrews is in Southie not Dorchester, but most people don’t live near there because the area isn’t as safe. I think the area works for some people but for most it doesn’t compare, which is probably why you don’t generally see it recommended to people unless they’re recent grads. You used to be able to buy for more reasonable prices down there but these days you’re not paying much less.

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing.

You can see how much they miss being together. ❤

When you know it's going to be a long day full of pointless meetings and pointless work, but at least you're remote so you resolve to do it all in your underwear.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

I have the opportunity to move to a small boutique data science and data engineering consulting firm that would pay better with less hours. However, would it stunt my growth without a big 4 tag? It has more opportunities for technical growth and certifications but will push me into a more specialized role. I am mostly worried about the trade off between staying until Manager or upper senior and cashing out then. Does anyone have insight on how the two may differ in future career opportunities?
