    People are nice to your face, but when it comes to actually making plans to do things you’ll get hit with the ole “Sure that sounds like a blast, I think I’m busy tonight but maybe next week” and then you never hear from said person again. That’s the Seattle Freeze.

    Seattle is a great city, but be warned, if you dont already have friends living here it can be pretty depressing the first year or two as the ‘Seattle Freeze’ is a real thing. Not to mention with the rain already here and the overcast, it gets dark around 3:45pm will be like that til late April. Also you will need to be willing to pay $2,000-$2,500 a month for a one bedroom if you want to be near the action.

    But hey! If you like really good IPA’s, flannels, glacier covered mountains, incredible live music scene, old growth forest, skiiing, camping, nightlife, and an incredible economy home to Amazon, Microsoft, DocuSign, F5 Networks, and both Google and Facebook both have major presences here and god knows how many start ups and other tech focused businesses, you’ll be just fine! Good luck!

  • jw0390 5 years ago on I Had No Idea I Was Clinically Depressed

    I’m not expert and this may be off topic, and before I dive in, I really hope things continue trending upward for you Rachel and I think many people here on this site will be constantly rooting for you.

    My thought is that recently there has been an uptick of general anxiety and clinical depression for us who fall into the Millennial curve as many of us (Including myself) are finally getting the courage to go and speak with a professional. I wonder how much of that is because of technology? Could the constant barrage of photos and ‘status updates’ we see of friends and acquaintances living the ‘perfect life’ start sanding us down to where we think that we aren’t good enough? I can’t help but to think that because our generation is so hyper competitive in every facet, to the clothes we wear, the job we have, that has some how altered the way we think and perceive the world around us to the point that we can’t turn it off. I really hope and pray that in the coming years our generation is able to lead a better fight for mental health awareness and that we start to explore the damages that social media does to us. It may not solve all the issues, but it could be a good start.

  • jw0390 5 years ago on A Cup Of Coffee After Dinner Is Of The Utmost Importance

    Class, Johnny D. You’re growing up before our eyes.

    I typically go with a decaf Espresso or Americano myself as there is typically enough residual caffeine from the lining of the machine to keep me going without staying up til 4am wondering if that waitress was indeed eye balling me or the large ketchup stain on my shirt.

  • jw0390 5 years ago on The True Terror Of Your Debit Card Getting Declined

    Only college kids use Debit Cards. Never use your credit card, except for taking out cash from an ATM. Not to throw shade here but you aren’t doing yourself and your credit and potential skymiles using a Debit Card. Get a credit card like a big kid, if it gets declined, have a second for a back up so that you can start building credit so you can buy a house.
