On What You Could Do With Your Money In Another City

I wonder how this is going to change if/as jobs become virtual or freelance. I work from Philadelphia for a company in NYC, and one in a small town in Wisconsin. The gig in NYC came second, and paid more -- and I used it to negotiate a raise with the Wisconsin gig. Which, maybe it just makes sense that a job from an expensive city would pay more because of cost of living...but I don't live in either of those places! Though I do commute to NYC sometimes, which makes the extra money from that job necessary in a basic-living- costs way.

On The Cost Of Mental Health Care for a Semi-insured 23-year-old

@sea ermine booo! I actually solved the $ problem by seeing a student at UPenn, which, mercifully, fit my needs for therapy and my budget (which involves splitting costs w my parents, I am 23) at $40/session.

On The Cost Of Mental Health Care for a Semi-insured 23-year-old

@Christy some interfaces also have an email function -- I think Psychology Today's website has a directory, with an "email" button. So if you're not sure, you can email blast a dozen or so therapists about the insurance thing. Super stressful/time consuming to do on the phone.

On What Product Is Currently Stalking You?

a bag from Nordstrom's that my roommate Blair bought a week ago is stalking me in Facebook ads. I think she must have sent me the link to show me when she bought it, but its strange.
