On Apartment Hunts, Communities of Excellence, and Living in NYC on $5,000 a Year

The only people who came to mind who would qualify for Startup Castle is Gracie from Orphan Black and Kimmy Schmidt, which is problematic because (aside from being fictional), they both grew up in a cult. So really what they're saying is, if you grew up in a cult, you can come live in our cult for $1000 a month.

On What People At McCann Think About MAD MEN

Growing up, my friend's dad was in some big NYC ad agency, don't know which one. I just remember him always having the latest sports car and having cool parties. Guess he was like Don or Pete for awhile, commuting home to his suburban life. Anyway, any excuse to post a Peggy gif:

On Next Question: Do You Consider Yourself Middle Class?

@eatmoredumplings While I totally agree about your failure of imagination point, this definition of upper class as being anyone over $90,000 feels a little off. A household of two people making $50k each doesn't sound like upper class or even anywhere near it. But by this definition it is?

On When the New Music Stops

On Move To Indianapolis, Ask For Raises In Dec, & More Ways To Make $$$ At Work

@A-M I've actually never gotten a job through something I've directly applied for. In fact, I've never gotten a job offer or even a call back from something I applied for. Only ever through recruiters who contacted me first.

On How to Date a Tech Millionaire

Do people really list incomes on dating sites? I tried that once to see what would happen and the number of women messaging me increased from single digits per month to dozens.
