You should Airbnb in the winter and test it out before you move. I moved from NYC and definitely miss what big cities have to offer from time to time. However on the plus side - People are much more open and friendly compared to cities. I live in a brand new house and don’t have to worry about living paycheck to paycheck anymore which is even better.

As a current Texan (not Austin), Austin is overrated. If you are a south park fan It’s basically SoDaSoPa. Everything is new and fake, no soul. I’m from Southern CA (not San Diego) and I think SD is the only place worth living in CA

Loved my time down in Austin. Traffic is something to consider. The infrastructure hasn’t caught up to the population growth.

It used to take me an hour to get from Mopac to 5th/Bowie during rush hour - I stand by my claim that traffic is something to consider haha

Do you think it would be unprofessional for me to get a buzz cut out of the blue as a 3rd year lawyer? Got a full head of hair and just want to try a buzz, not going bald or anything. But a little worried about looking immature or unprofessional to the fratty partners and clients I work for after having medium/long-ish hair for a guy during my first 3 years of practice. I feel like most lawyers don’t have super short hair unless old or bald… I’m a third year lit attorney.

Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
