You could really set yourself apart from every single douche on the planet and not get the tattoos.

Can we not, CW2? For once can a thread just be about this dickhead and his tattoos and not race?

I'm gender fluid and while my skin is technically "white," I identify as all races. So no matter what you say in response to that, you don't know my journey and thus you're a bigot. I'm getting a neck tattoo in protest to all of these racial and gender assumptions at my expense.

Race definitely wasn't implied, JW1. Sounds like you're the one who wanted to bring race into it.

The working holiday visa was an amazing experience for me. I spent every dime I made while I was there but I explored everywhere. CoL is really high because their min wage is so high, but if you've found yourself a gig, do it! (I was a full-time TA affiliated with a university at the time, no clue what the ad industry looks like there)

Its implied. Always.

Exactly CW4. Differences like these in race, gender, age, sexual orientation... these are things that should be used to pull us together. Not drive us apart.

Yikes, y'all. I didn't indicate race or gender. Just saying if you have so much money that your dilemma is either you can fly to Sydney or get a ton of tattoos, that must be a nice problem to have

like

Get ready for a much smaller, pickier industry in Sydney. If your priorities of tattoos and moving to Sydney are on equal par, you'd probably best stick with the tattoos.

If you have to ask this... get the tattoos mate

Sydney!! You can get inked up any time. Traveling is always an amazing experience and contrary to popular belief you can't just do all the traveling when you retire because it won't be the same vibe and you won't have the same energy (and it's far more fun when you're 'young').

Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
