~15% LA, post MBA and living in one bedroom with my fiancée, so still a decent sized place ($2700 a month between the two of us, I pay a large percentage though). Would go bigger but have a lot of school debt.

Even if it's not "basically NYC" Hoboken is fucking awesome

I’m only 2-3 years into my career and I feel like f*cking toilet paper — just spent a week of my life busting ass/working OT on a reduced salary (thanks COVID, love ya 😘) “designing” PPT presentations for clients I’ve never met. I know that’s normal, but it would be nice to know the ppl who constantly tell you to “jazz it up”... I’m just really, really questioning what I’m doing in advertising. I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.
