I had that interview and it looks like they're inviting me over to come talk in-person. So I guess I did alright.

Man if I was paying 1700 in just rent I would literally not be able to eat. Or drive anywhere other than work. Is that normal pricing where you're at?

$1700 for a 1 bedroom is about how much it costs for a high rise 1BR downtown where I live. Downtown's usually the most expensive region in a city so $1700 is the standard rate for a top-tier apartment here. I'm paying $1100/mo for a 1 bedroom + study in an old apt built in the early 70s with no dishwasher or garbage disposal... but it's downtown so it's a pretty solid deal IMO. If I were to upgrade to one of the apartments built within the last 10 years down the street, I'd be looking at a minimum of $1600. I don't really think it's worth it for me to pay an extra $500/mo just for a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and newer aesthetics

Well the very most expensive high rise 1 bedrooms start at $2400 at the newest, fanciest location, but all the others are starting between $1700-2000. Also it looks like 1 Canadian dollar = .77 USD so that would partially explain why things seem more expensive in Toronto

Well I didn't sign the lease last night, I told them after they approved me that I wanted to go visit it again today.

 

I wanted to have my family come take a look today and I was probably going to sign it right now,but some lady moving from new york apparently rushed and signed it as soon as I got approved.

 

Oh well it was really nice for its price but there will be others and if I get patient I'll get something cheaper

Yeah im in the LA area so 100 miles of urban sprawl 
 
but downtown LA is >2.4k on average for a downtown loft in a decent area. Its still like 1.5k to live on skid row lol.

Yeah its reasonable. 1.5k is the bare minimum to not live in a roach motel

Feels sacrilegious to take a job from the WoW people while you still post on a RS fansite.

My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off

I still have a 4.0 GPA... gotta keep it! I'm gonna cry when it drops :(. I'm hoping I can keep a 4.0 GPA through my Associate's and maybe, just maybe, through my Bachelor's but I think that's unlikely (flashbacks to biology and chemistry). On a resume, would I put 4.0 GPA under my Associate's and 3.X under my Bachelor's?

I'm working on a helpful skeleton miner. I rigged the skeleton model using the player armature so he can use player armor/weapons:


He'll give you a piece of food if you talk to him and ask. (Unlimited, I think...) He'll just mine some rocks, smelt then, smith some items, and repeat.

The purpose is to allow the player to mine rocks quicker (unlike in RuneScape, as long as you're mining the rock when it's depleted, you'll get a resource), He'll have like level 10 mining and be carrying an iron pickaxe so he'll deplete the rocks in 3-4 hits if my math is right. You can also attack him but he'll be pretty tough and you won't have any cool tricks to counter him like with the boss ghost foreman.

I'd say if your GPA is higher than 3.5, it's worth putting on there. Otherwise, the degree speaks for itself. Mine was 3.41 and things worked out ok

Also: Blizzard is doing some weird shake ups. Like they took Ben Brode off of Hearthstone. Not a great environment from the looks of it

Who the hell needs to buy an IELTS certificate? It ain't that hard to get legally and if you can't get it you have bigger issues in life.

Also, I don't even earn 1700 bucks a month. Yet I imagine I have as much or more disposable income as any of you. Nearly all of my income is disposable, as rent and board are provided by employer :P

Salary differences don't generally account for exhange rate disparity so I doubt that carries over into rent too much

Samesies! Except I get paid slightly more and can't really spend it because of school.
