House cleaner B comes every other week $160, does a great job. B is not as reachable, speaks hardly any english, not insured and takes the whole day to clean the house, like 8 hours. We currently have A, had B prior. We loved the way B cleaned the house but it took so long and A is so much more reachable when we need to switch days but doesn't get to everything.

For me, NYC. But it really depends on each individual and what they like. I think SF nails life balance a lot more. But it doesn't really feel like a hustling, bustling city if you prefer urban. There's like 5 restaurants that serve dinner past 10pm. Are you outdoorsy? [ Reply | More ]

to me SF is a great city for those who need a city of that size for their jobs (finance, law, etc) , like living in a city rather than sprawling suburbia, are liberal AND like access and weather for outdoors stuff. [ Reply | More ]

I got tired of all of the neighborhood politics in SF. Every part of town is out for itself, and won't work with the other parts. But if you can stay out of that, the city is a nice place to live, and it was great getting out to other parts of CA on long weekends. [ Reply | More ]

It depends on what's most important to you. If you're outdoorsy and value beautiful scenery and weather, SF is your spot. People are generally very nice, although can be a little overly earnest and humorless. If you're not in tech, the job options are much more limited than NY. I am originally from NY but have lived here five years, got married and had DB here, who is 15 months old. It was a perfect spot for her first year - I was able to take her out every single day (thanks to the drought!). We are moving back for DH's job soon and I will be sad to leave but I also look forward to being near family, having lots of quick food options (there is NOTHING in my neighborhood - Marina), good public transportation, and people who are a little more salty, for lack of a better word.

Honestly, it was tough. The career services department at my college was awful so had to do independent job search. At first couldn't get my foot in the door anywhere. I took some accounting and finance courses at NYU. It took a while, but I ended up getting a job in equity research. I had to do a lot of networking through family friends to find my first job. Then got an MBA and at that point my college major was kind of irrelevant. I did enjoy majoring and minoring in languages. I still speak them and use them in my personal life. Idid use one of my languages when I was in business school and worked for an investment bank in London for the summer. That was the first (and only) time my major actually got me an opportunity in business. [ Reply | More ]

This. That Maltese guy at the EU meeting had a major hissy fit because there wasn't a Maltese translator and he had to speak English. (That said, translating will be computerized in another ten years or so, so there's probably a ceiling on job growth.) [ Reply | More ]

that talent is pretty much universally useful. major in what you like, pursue a career that you enjoy, only real advice is to study abroad in college and gain fluency in another language (Spanish has served me extremely well, Mandarin and Japanese have been useful to others I know...).

"Starting over" in what respect? Financially? Romantically? I'm 53 and divorced my ex at 52.

There are good divorced days and bad divorced days then after a while, you kind of stabilize in your new normal. [ Reply | More ]

Yes - I have 3 very close friends who got divorced, all under very different circumstances - one at 40 w 1 dc, now 46, one at 37 w 1 dc, now 46, one at 36 w 2 dc, now 40. first is in a serious relationship for the past year, the 2nd was remarried 2 years ago, the 3rd is in a serious relationship for about 6 months. Financially they are all over the place - first got a good settlement, 2nd was financially independent, 3rd is in a tough spot. First one divorced a decent guy who developed serious problems, 2nd divorced a scumbag she never should ahve married - both initiated by her. 3rd was left high and dry by a guy w tons and tons of emotional baggage that just had no interest in making it work. All are happier now. [ Reply | More ]
