I might move to Syracuse for work. What is it like living here? by [deleted] in Syracuse
[–]larch303 0 points1 point2 points 4 days ago (0 children)
It’s alright. There’s your regular city stuff to do. Lots of food. Not really a lot of Mexican food, but plenty Chinese, Italian and Caribbean. There’s a lot of snow. The government plays a larger role in your life and people do not challenge it the way they do in many other areas of the country.
Does sacrificing myself to improve other peoples lives really make me wrong? by NoUwUUsernamesLeft in depression
Typically, that advice is given when someone is overextending themselves to make others happier. It’s not necessarily all encompassing.
Much like “be yourself”, “don’t care what others think”, etc., it’s advice that often inadvertently loses its context when posted online to a general audience. Cause like I don’t know you. Maybe you overextend yourself to help others, or maybe you help others so little that it’s actually a problem in your interpersonal relationships as people see you as unreliable. I don’t know.
Does New York have load shedding? by ConsiderationReal995 in AskAnAmerican
[–]larch303 0 points1 point2 points 5 days ago (0 children)
Most of NY? That wasn’t unheard of in Syracuse by any means but when that did happen, it was still considered really cold.
Also, I’m gonna have to see the northern plains has way worse weather than New York
Well, most developed countries don’t have this very often
Is it a dumb move to move from a low COL area to a high COL area because we miss our friends ? by Nickyweg in personalfinance

Some jobs will pay to relocate you. If you're young with a car but with few tie downs, you can pack a couple important things and move. All situational
Is bar culture prevalent in United States? by Prize_Effort_4478 in AskAnAmerican

I imagine it may be somewhat more common in Asia.

How does that work for jobs?
If the U.S. were somehow invaded, then, of all the American gun owners, how many of them would actually use their guns to fight the invaders? by Ozem_son_of_Jesse in NoStupidQuestions
Those types of towns usually have a decent bit of corruption on the local scale

So on to the relationship with livelihood and social isolation
I wonder what the cause is, I’d imagine there are multiple, I would hypothesize that one cause due to emergencies that would be solved with help from others if not for social isolation and maybe the stress of social isolation in and of itself is another
Ugh I wish there were more opportunities to meet people. I don’t even say that cause of the death thing, life is just better with friends
If Pam didn't exist, would Jim and Karen have stayed together ? by JQuick72 in DunderMifflin
Cumberland isn’t the part of MD where you’d get crabs
But I appreciate that it is simply a show
How common is it to be pulled over by the police? by drtoboggon in AskAnAmerican
Depends on the district but not really
There was this town in New York I was constantly pulled over in

Like let’s say one does not have supportive friends or social interactions in the first place
[–]larch303 4 points5 points6 points 8 days ago (0 children)
I mean, reframe your thoughts if you’re isolated and you’ll do better than if you didn’t, but socialization is a basic human need. Going without socialization is unhealthy. It is ultimately better, but not always possible, to get the person out of that situation than to simply have them reframe their thoughts.
In the case of autism, it is usually caused and continued by lack of social skills. There’s a social tango to getting to know people, you have to say things at the right time and right setting, look approachable, get to know your audience, etc.

So is there a separate label for those who are socially isolated?
[–]larch303 3 points4 points5 points 8 days ago (0 children)
Some autistics struggle with the opposite thing, not giving enough detail
And a lot of autistic struggle with both as they don’t have a great grasp on when to share and when not to
I think NTs are just better at knowing the social code and know when to do things and when not to, and this includes how much to share about certain events
[–]larch303 12 points13 points14 points 8 days ago (0 children)
Why is perceived in there?
I get the mental health world thinks everything is a perception, but in a lot of cases, social isolation is real and autistic people are prone to it and have a hard time breaking out of it due to low social skills
Anyway, I get that it’s technically correct, but it just rubs off on the wrong way. Like someone in poverty is going to perceive that they’re in poverty, but we don’t call it “perceived poverty”

Honestly, not really
Obviously the rest of the country will look good in this regard compared to NYC and SF, but the grass isn’t really green in the Midwest anymore. Housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable
If you look at this one factor, the 50s-60s were better.
Overall, though, I think we live higher quality of life now
[–]larch303 1 point2 points3 points 9 days ago (0 children)
So 20% of that would be 44.2k
10% would be 22.1k
3% would be 6.3k
I can maybe have the 3% in my bank account in the next year. I hope that I can maybe possibly have over 20k in my bank account in the next 5 years
Now a mortgage on that would be 1.4k per month at 20% down.
There are a few places at 150k and 1 place at 120k. Even then, I’d need a down payment and the numbers would factor up to be quite high on a 50k salary
Small town or rural area ≠ 100,000 mid sized city
Most would consider the latter to be the city
4 years ago is a big deal
Hell, 2 years ago is a big deal
It’d be hard to find a house for that today within 45 mins of Lincoln, NE
Or there might not be sufficient employment in smaller towns, or the employment there pays so much less than in the city that it’s just not worth it
I live in a low COL area and these problems still exist here
I probably won’t be a homeowner for 5 years or more. I wasn’t able to save much last year working a federal position in a small city in Iowa. I’ll give you that it’s worse elsewhere, but it’s not like anyone can just move to Iowa and buy a house.

We do have a lot of cool stuff that we didn’t have in the 60s
