Starting a new consulting job soon. Should I live with my folks at home in Murphy or get an apartment if my office is in Uptown? Feel like it would be an expensive storage unit if I’m on a travel case.

Do you need to be in person at your home office? Then get your own place.
But will you be traveling often or more like once a month at most? If more frequently, then maybe your own place might seem like a waste.
If both - (in office plus some travel) - may as well get your own place.

How likely is google to change its stance on returning to the office? I’m evaluating 2 offers right now - both are very similar (pay, job function, etc.) except google is in-office. I’m so comfortable at home and can spend more time cooking and exercising when I’m not commuting. Google is obviously a better brand than my other offer, but I’m not sure if that is enough to make it worth it.

I'll be moving to Dallas for work this summer. I've been looking into housing options within walking distance from my job in downtown (wanna minimize driving as much as possible). Most of the places I've seen within my budget seem to have really mixed reviews. I don't need anything big or fancy--just needs to be safe and clean. Any insight on these places (or any other recs) would be great:
