I was thinking something completely different where I felt like I contributed to society, but I appreciate humor and advice. I'm one of those burn outs.

Any of those sound awful. Especially "male stripper" (what do I do with my phone?).

This is something I've been struggling with. I'm ready for a switch but haven't found something that sounds different enough to be interesting but still a relatively lateral move for someone with 12 years of experience. In the meantime I've found a side hustle that's satisfying to me.

If the pay was equal to what I earn now, then I'd be a teacher

Has anyone had success negotiating a large medical bill with a hospital. I had an emergency room visit, resulting in a bill of which I owe $2k (after payments by insurance). I’m capable of paying, so not expecting to qualify for any programs. Just think the amount owed is outrageous (I.e. $4k for a CT Scan!?) Any tips?

Is it really that impossible to live in NYC, alone, on a salary in the 50-55k range?? I know COL and rent is pricey but I’m 100% remote and budgeting 1.6-1.9k apts in decent Manhattan neighborhoods I’ve found on StreetEasy. I’m currently in atl, so I know that (overall) living here is cheaper, but I’m faced with having to get a new car and I feel that having that added expense (down payment+car note+insurance+maintenance) essentially balances me out w/ ny expenses and I’d much rather be in ny.

Home owners & home improvement savvy folks - wwyd? I share townhome walls w my neighbor, & they had a burst pipe in their second story bathroom. The water leaked into my first floor garage. I will be calling insurance when they open - but what can I expect in terms of home repairs? Will the sheet rock need to be replaced and interior dried with heaters? Will my 2nd story floor have unseen water under the hardwood? Mold is a risk.

Deciding between $450k condo vs $750k house. Currently live in and will always live in San Diego. $260k TC. Have $100k available for down payment. Don’t want to pay rent anymore. Would you recommend house or condo? House is shabby in up and coming area 30min from beach but 1500sq ft 4 bedroom. Condo is close to beach and 2 bedroom at 800sq ft. HOA fee $200 per month. Travel a lot and ideally can rent place out but not pivotal. Condo and house appreciation are equal over past 10 years
