Go climbing - there are lots of climbing gyms all over the city. It is a good way to test your persistence and physical ability. It is also very technique focused which provides a good mental challenge.

Cycling and jazz classes

I take jazz improv classes at the 92Y and with another teacher in midtown. Been playing sax for almost 20 years, so it’s mostly playing and theory, but I know the 92Y has classes for multiple levels of experience.

Join an intramural sports team! Best way to stay in shape and meet people

Cycling!

another one for cycling. there really is some awesome riding to be had just outside of the city.

I volunteer for a nonprofit that helps low-income, talented high school students get into college. It’s called Minds Matter NYC. They take volunteers as either mentors or writing instructors for the students, and the majority of volunteers are twentysomething professionals. We are recruiting volunteers now for next fall: www.mindsmatternyc.org/volunteers

No Tipping All-Inclusive Resorts
Does anyone have any suggestions about places where you can stay without the hassle/expectation to be tipping everyone all the time?

I hate having to give tips for everything when I'm on vacation. I don't want to be carrying cash around. In fact, I don't even want to be thinking about it. I just want to relax!

To be clear, this isn't about the money. It's about the hassle. I'd just rather pay an upfront gratuity fee that covers all of tips for the entire stay.

Every time I go on LinkedIn lately it’s a full cringefest. People are taking this “look how vulnerable I can be” thing way too far. It’s embarrassing… posting selfie’s of them crying because they got laid off and begging for jobs… am I missing something?? Go APPLY TO JOBS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I was laid off and immediately started job searching, I didn’t post a pity party pic or a long statement on LinkedIn… personally, I wouldn’t hire someone like that or wouldn’t want to… but that’s just me.

Was talking to a recruiter today and when she asked about my desired compensation I told her a minimum of $80k since it is already below the average for a Financial Analyst in nyc. Recruiter then asks me why do I think I deserve that amount. I was taken aback because I thought that is very fair for someone with experience in the field already and have a few years of relevant experience as well. Am I tripping or was that condescending? She then tries to low-ball me to $70k 😐.
