Here are some meetups that are on the radar, both physical and virtual.
on background: Some states are beginning to open up, usually with social distancing caveats. I am not aware of the situation in each state, but I have heard the Utah governor giving the go ahead for gatherings of up to 50 people, but with a caveat that extra care/protections should be added for populations that have shown to be extra vulnerable. People over 60 who contract the virus, especially if they have existing health conditions, have fared very poorly. There may be risks to people in every age group, even when in good health, that we just don't know about, too. The governor also stated that wearing masks in public settings should be considered the norm. Utah County joined Salt Lake with a mask mandate, despite some political opposition. CDC director Redfield has said masks are the best defense against the pandemic spreading. The Utah governor has extended the state of emergency and Utah is experiencing a spike in cases likely associated with schools restarting. Confined spaces seem to be a way that the virus spreads rapidly, per the outbreaks in institutional settings have shown. The latest research I've seen points to indoor, stagnant, low humidity air being the being the prime vector for this disease to spread. I've been tracking the pandemic as an amateur---some graphs---these show Utah in the top ten for actively spreading cases. That said, I am not an expert on health, not a doctor, and not in charge of all people in the world. Please, comply with local government rules and recommendations when planning meetups.

2020.09.24 10:44 PostsWithoutThinking Well, I had a beer.

I had a beer. Actually, I had 2 beers and a shot of tequila. This was about 3 weeks ago. It wasn't a moment of weakness. I knew exactly what I was doing. I have gone 4 and a half years without a single drop of booze. I have bartended in New York City sober, gone to Las Vegas, gone to New Orleans with 18 people for a bachelor party, moved to the other side of the world, gone on countless dates, and have never been tempted to drink.
I went out to meet a girl for a date and for the first time hadn't mentioned that I don't drink prior to the meetup. I don't know. I'm kind of just sick of having to mention it. I don't consider it to be a defining characteristic of myself. I'm sick of this monkey on my back I have to introduce to everyone. So I get to the place and of course it's a bar. A bar that looks like a place you go to get drunk. So I tell her I don't really drink. I eventually make the decision to order a Corona so she doesn't feel weird (Ok she was really beautiful :) ). What the hell, I'll take a few sips. I'm enjoying the conversation and I have enough confidence in myself that I'm not going to slip into getting shitfaced. I feel a pretty good buzz after 1/4 of the beer. She wants another drink eventually and a shot and I initially decline. But I see she is kind of uneasy about me not drinking so what the hell I tell her to order the shots and I'll just sip.
Eventually we leave and go to another spot and I have one more beer. I was having a good time really. We go back to her place. The next day, I honestly didn't regret it. I didn't feel very good from drinking even that little bit after having abstained for years.
I don't feel like I fucked up. I really don't even care. I actually felt kind of relieved that I don't have to hold on to this 'streak' that I put up on a pedestal and thought was the only thing keeping me from drinking again. It's been 3 weeks and I haven't drank again. I haven't even thought about drinking. Did I fail? Nah. Early on in my sobriety I might have counted this as a failure but am I supposed to live in fear for the rest of my life? If anything I've learned that the streak isn't what is keeping me sober and that I've actually changed my life. I wanted to hold myself accountable and tell my brothers who have also stopped drinking, but I think I was somewhat of an inspiration to them and if I tell them then they might also be tempted to break the streak.
Obviously I don't recommend going out and having a drink. And maybe it's not even a good idea to share this story because people might think they can do the same. But I just wanted to hold myself accountable to someone. And sometimes I see people post about having a drink and having to start from scratch.

2020.08.10 20:38 Buck_Joffrey Wealth Formula Episode 224: Multifamily Macroeconomics in the Twilight Zone

Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/224-multifamily-macroeconomics-in-the-twilight-zone/
Buck: Welcome back to the show everyone. Today my guest on Wealth Formula Podcast, he's been on the show before. He's economist Ryan Davis. He actually joined us at one of our last Wealth Formula meetups. Of course, the last one we had was canceled but Ryan was at the one before that. He serves as a chief operating officer at Witten Advisors and provides fact-based research analysis and discussion to help clients like us formulate their apartment strategies and these insights and for investment decisions for multi-family development and buy/sell opportunities which as you can imagine we're all looking for some of this advice these days. Ryan has a PhD in economics from the University of Texas. Ryan, welcome back to Wealth Formula Podcast.
Ryan: Thank you. Glad to be back.
Buck: Yeah it's been like a pandemic ago when we last talked right? Listen, you know I want to kind of jump into the whole you know what the heck is going on, I mean the overall, if you would, you know kind of give me your overall assessment of the economy. I mean obviously we know these huge drops in GDP etc which were expected last quarter. How is this all affecting real estate asset prices especially you know apartments which is you know is our interest and something that you specialize in?
Ryan: Sure so yeah the great unknown is the pace of the recovery. So we had that big drop through April in terms of employment and then we got a bounce back in May and June and the hope was that it was going to be a V-shaped recovery. But then we saw virus cases ramp back up in the second half of June into the early part of July and the local economy started rolling back some of their openings and so with that, we've kind of stalled out recently. So we'll get the July numbers this Friday for overall payroll gains and that could I think the consensus is anywhere between one, one and a half million jobs it could be negative so who knows but it looks like the hope for a v-shaped recovery in the economy has kind of stalled out after the first two months of optimism. And so we think that going forward we won't see any the worst is behind us really and so we won't see you know the big losses that we experienced in March and early into April so kind of what we're calling for right now is for the national economy to continue to add jobs for the remainder of the year and then beginning next year a recovery should emerge and that would sustain demand for housing and ultimately apartments going forward. In the near term as far as multi-family goes we expect some pain through the end of this year and then into the early part of next year. In terms of pricing power, if we had to boil it down to one number it's rent growth so year over year effective rent growth we think that declines to eight percent rent cuts this year and into the early part of 2021. That varies considerably on a local market basis I think our worst-performing market is Metro New York City probably no surprise there but then also many of the other gateway markets such as Boston, LA, the Bay Area, etc. We expect rent declines to be lower than that eight percent across the board, however many of the inner west, Texas, southeastern market should outperform still see rent declines but not closer to five/six percent range at the depth and so we expect near-term pain but then as we get out into 2021 and afterward and the economy begins to add a lot of jobs we would expect rent growth to return to multi-family. And then what that means for pricing in terms of apartment assets for right now in the second quarter hardly any deals trade at hand so it's really tough to get a sense of where pricing is and with the deals that have traded though the cap rates have remained relatively stable which is a good sign. We've heard from some of our merchant builder clients where they had assets they had constructed and were going out to the market to sell in the early part of April they were saying 10 discounts in terms of the compared to pre corona levels but that has since come back in the last 45-60 days and maybe it's only one to two percent in terms of the haircut that they're seeing out there right now. And there's a just a ton of capital that wants to get back into multifamily at the same time there's hardly any distress out there right now so there's a lack of available to you know supply to buy and so everyone is just kind of in this standstill there's a big ass gap because buyers aren't willing to pay yesterday's prices for assets but sellers aren't willing to give any you know deep discounts right now and so it's kind of a standstill and we’ll see how all this plays out.
Buck: Yeah you know it's really interesting we're obviously you know through, you work with Western Wealth Capital, one of my partners and you know it's funny because we were kind of thinking well maybe there'll be some real buying opportunities but you know we've seen a little bit maybe just you know from buyers who are sellers who just are just wanting to get out while they're ahead maybe they made some money you know maybe they and at this point you know they're just thinking let's just cash out and maybe they're willing to take a little bit less but for the most part you know if you look across our own portfolio and it might be because it's largely again Texas and Arizona, etc that and maybe it's because it's mostly working-class B and you know high C class apartment but our portfolio you know the numbers are just as good as they've ever been in terms of you know occupancy in terms of even our we're still raising rents. And so when you look at that you're like well I mean how do you expect there to be any you know smoking deals out there if the sellers really aren't feeling any distress. So is there a difference you know when you look at something like a B and C class apartment scenario versus A right now or have you been able to break that down a little bit because I think the people I know who are in the A-class and new build are you know they're certainly feeling things a little bit more than we are.
Ryan: Yeah so what we've heard from some of our clients in terms of early on so may June in terms of rent collections class A's were actually from a nationwide perspective actually exceeded the class B and C product. Now we don't think that will continue going forward and the main reason is that new deliveries that are coming online they will compete with the existing top of the market product and so we think that it will be short-lived in terms of the top of the market outperformance and another part is due to just the nature of this downturn where low-wage sectors were hit extremely hard in April, got some bounce back in May and June but the leisure and hospitality sectors lower-paying positions those have been the most impacted so far. But going forward we don't think that this downturn would be any different than prior recessions in terms of the class A leading the way down in terms of jobs and occupancy and also rent growth or rent cuts in the near term. So class A’s will lead the market down but then as we get out into the later part of next year and into early 2022 then class A's would outperform the broader market. So yeah we think through the end of this year until early next that B's and C's will hold up relatively better but that's mainly a function of just the competition that it takes to get these new projects they will get leased up it's just a matter of the market-clearing price and so those have to compete those could be mostly with the top end of the spectrum and so we see big rent declines and concessions in the class A space going forward.
Buck: You know there's this thesis that's going around in the multi-family space and you know I've been sort of you know looking at it this way too for a while though I'm starting to you know feel like it's maybe not gonna happen is this idea that there's going to be a potentially before we really rebound and start heading up again that there’ll potentially be a you know big tsunami of defaults and things like that. Right now at least what I'm you know seeing and hearing about in terms of the lending markets and in terms of these properties, there really isn't much indication of that right now is there I mean what do you think?
Ryan: No at least not in the short term I mean again there's it goes back to my earlier comment there's been no distress really and so that is due mainly to the huge stimulus packages that have been passed those from a fiscal standpoint and a monetary standpoint which is it's crazy to think that GDP declined at an annualized rate by 32 however incomes soared and so that's all due to the stimulus that we saw and so that's helped prop up renters incomes and allow them to pay rent. Now going forward I think some of these the number of defaults I don't think there will be a tsunami, at least that's how we view it right now, ask me again in a week and it could change, but I think that the defaults will be very market specific and so those geographies that have been hit harder we'll see a larger number but many of the Texas markets, Phoenix, Denver, southeast high growth markets where you've got this short-term tailwind in terms of folks at the margin more and the trends that have been in place for years of folks moving from gateway markets into these inner markets will be kind of you know given a stairway shot really in the near term and so that would help to prop up multi-family fundamentals and so yeah if you're expecting a tsunami of defaults in any of those markets that I've mentioned again it kind of gets a little bit granular in terms of you know potentially Orlando might have some problems just with the amount of supply and then the you know low-wage in tourism industries being impacted more dramatically and that would lead to some weakness in Orlando but out outside of that maybe Houston you could argue you know somewhat but outside of those two and those those areas of the inner west Texas, southeast Florida should be but hold up you know relatively well and I would think that the main stress points will be out you know on the coast in California potentially portland we do think seattle holds up relatively well and then northeast in terms of you know New York and Boston as well so I think it's very locally market driven.
Buck: Yeah it's interesting you know we did we were a little worried about Houston too but our you know Houston portfolio is actually doing awesome it's not having any problems at all which is which was you know again, knock on wood that’s what it's been so far. Let me ask you another question you mentioned the pent-up demand of you know money on the sidelines waiting to get back in and you know and in many situations, they have to get back in right they're mandated to deploy capital and that sort of thing do you the one thought that I've had through this is you know multi-family and well multi-family in general has held up so well during this period of time does that potentially create a situation where you know the big money that's coming in starts looking at this even harder as potentially a little bit of a hedge or a little bit of safe haven. What what do you guys think is going to be the effect of that you know the relatively stable performance and then ultimately you know having all of this money on the sidelines,? Do you see paradoxical even further compression of cap rates over the next couple years? What's your thought on that?
Ryan: Yeah and so kind of pre-corona our forecast was for cap rates to continue to decline and you know taking a step back it was mainly driven by global factors with the aging populations across the globe that have built wealth up and all that investment needed to be placed somewhere. And so those trends were driving returns lower for longer and so those are the demographic that have not been affected by the pandemic. And so just from a global standpoint, we're expecting returns across all assets whether stocks bonds you know all classes of real estate whether it's multi or industrial retail office, etc those returns would continue to head lower. Now we've had the pandemic and we've seen multi-family and industrial hold up exceedingly well and who knows what to make of retail office and lodging just lots of pain and in those sectors and so if you need to be allocated to real estate then multifamily and industrial or where you want to be at least in the short term and especially if you're looking for consistency of returns and you know risk-adjusted on a risk-adjusted basis you know multi-industrial or have outperformed other asset classes and so really to get into the lodging office retail space probably more opportunistic mindset in terms of those assets may need to be repositioned etc and so I think a lot of that money that's out there is not looking to get there's a lot that's looking for that type of asset turnaround story but there's also a lot of money out there that needs the stability. And so that should continue to compress cap rates or put a really put a cap on that cap rates and so it would be no surprise if cap rates on an aggregate basis hold steady and maybe even decline despite a deterioration in short-term fundamentals and part of that is due to the long-term belief in apartments going forward and so yes there's a short-term dislocation where we expect some move-outs that you know this year actually there are a lot of move-outs that we expect and so there's going to be a lot of doubling up folks moving back in with their families but then there's going to be pent up demand as we as that recovery takes hold next year and that will be released and so we see leasing to be through the roof next year and then out into 2022. Then at the same time as that demand story improves in the short term we see starts decelerating dramatically so we've we're going from a 400,000 unit run rate to about 200,000 units by the early part of next year. And so new production is going to get cut in half now that we don't get any benefit of that immediately so we have to wait till later part of 2022 and 2023 before we see that slowdown and production really lift fundamentals and so I think everyone is seeing that yes there's some short-term disruption in the multi-family market right now, but the long-term drivers are there and if you have the capital to wait out this very painful period in the short term then there will be major benefits after that we should see after next year.
Buck: Now one of the things you said I think earlier is that the worst is behind us do you believe that's the case in terms of rent growth and you know rent cuts and that sort of thing right now?
Ryan: I think the worst is behind us in terms of the economy. I think that going forward we should continue to produce job gains on a monthly basis, though this next report could see some layoffs we'll see the consensus is one million one and a half. In terms of multi-family we do not think the worst is behind us we think that fundamentals will continue to deteriorate into the early part of next year we think that you know kind of right now in terms of year over year rent growth in the early part of this year let's call it three, three and a half percent we've since gone down to zero percent in the second quarter. So on a quarterly basis we've seen some dramatic rent cuts, again this is on a national basis and then as we move forward we see occupancy dropping by about three percentage points into the early part of next year, rent declines of about eight percent through the remainder of this year into the first quarter of next year and so no we do think that there will be some deterioration and fundamentals going forward. On the flip side of that might present some opportunities and so any assets that were purchased specially in your space in terms of if they were bought at the top of the market at the end of last year in the early part of this year and now that value-add story isn't there where you might not be able to get the rent bumps that you were expecting so some of those assets will have to be recapitalized and so that might present some opportunity as the year progresses but again like you said we haven't seen that materialized so far.
Buck: Yeah that's the tricky part right I mean it's sort of like I think when you're on the buy side here you're saying well I mean these prices that we're seeing right now you know with prolonged you know low-interest rates which we can pretty much guarantee at this point for a period of time and then the pent-up demand. It's sort of like okay well I mean this actually might be one of the better times to buy if you consider what could potentially happen in the next you know 18 to 24 months in terms of you know explosive growth. When you look at those indicators that you're you know that you're talking about that may lead to some of the more explosive growth metrics what markets come to mind the most for you?
Buck: Now one of the things you said I think earlier is that the worst is behind us do you believe that's the case in terms of rent growth and you know rent cuts and that sort of thing right now?
Ryan: Yeah so our general geographic areas that we like we like the southeast, parts of Florida, Texas and the inner west. We really like Atlanta, we like South Florida though there's a little more pain in the short term some of our clients are saying it kind of in terms of you know rent collections you know northeast but also yeah LA but then South Florida is outperforming those two areas but still lagging some of these other markets. So we like the Texas markets long term the interwebs you have Phoenix, Denver, Salt Lake as well. We like Seattle that's an outlier on the west coast but then the other markets whereas in the Bay Area we expect those you know rent growth numbers to average four, four and a half percent which stack up really well across the nation but for those markets that's a recession pretty much and so compared to what's normal and the cap rates you have to pay the rent growth numbers there kind of you know lackluster. So the midwest the markets they won't be hit as hard but still they don't get that explosive growth going forward and so we really like the inner West Texas, southeast of Florida markets and you know part of that has been driven being driven by the migration flows. So domestic migration numbers have really helped out all of these markets we've seen outflows from the northeast boston new york the bay area Southern California we've seen migration outflows from those markets into the you know inner west you know Las Vegas the inland Phoenix, Denver you know people moving from the coast into those markets and then you know also parts of texas as well but then in terms of the northeast the flows that are coming in to the Nashvilles the Charlottes, Raleighs, Atlanta, Florida markets we and then also Texas as well and so those trends have been accelerated at least in the short term, but it's important to remember that those have been going on for a decade at least even more and then other markets and so it's not anything new but at the margin that will support many of these other markets.
Buck: Yeah on the west coast I mean there's that flight to Arizona as well right from California. One of the things that you know is worth talking about is what effect this has had you know the pandemic and the recession on the lending market, with Fannie and Freddie and you know how that might be playing into any of the growth or lack of growth.
Ryan: Yeah I think on the financing side you know debt for stabilized assets it's there and it's cheap you may have to you know have higher reserves than you've had typically but for the most part it's there and so that's part of the appeal of buying assets right now with these record low interest rates. So I think for stabilized assets yeah it's there for new construction it is dried up considerably and this is a change in the last 30 to 60 days and so the fed does a survey each quarter of banks and their tightening of multi-family construction lending standards and that the latest report shows 70 percent of banks tighten their multi-family construction loans last quarter which we haven't seen those levels since 2008/2009. And so I think part of it's the lenders are trying to make sense of what they have in terms of all these other asset types in terms of real estate or retail, lodging, office loans, they're trying to you know spend a lot of time working those out and so then you add on the uncertainty in terms of the economic recovery etc, they've pretty much put a halt on new construction loans. And so that's been a big change here in the last two months call it. Then on the equity side I think returns have been increased but still available and interested but you know a lot of you know equity and especially focusing in on the new starts pipeline if all the deals that have been started are continuing and it's kind of a mixed bag from our clients in terms of are you seeing delays or actually some other clients that reported these they were able to speed up the timing in terms of getting able to get trucks into sites very easily and then also the construction workers that were on you know working on hotels motels those have come into the apartment sector and so that's provided more manpower in terms of getting these deals done. And so those that were under construction are continuing to proceed, those that were capitalized I think that but haven't begun those have been they haven't pulled out completely they just said let's press pause to see let's say can we get any break in construction costs over the next several months and so the equity and banks they're still willing to do it move forward on those deals that have been capitalized but are you know slow playing it. And then you get to the others where there's land sites and they hadn't been entitled and haven't been capitalized those deals we think have been shelved for right now and so it kind of where some opportunity could be is on the land side of you know potentially purchasing some land sites that might be teed up for development as we get further along in this recovery.
Buck: Again one of the things that you're saying though in terms of construction loans not being there again it helps us for those of us who have apartment portfolios already that are already there that that again goes to the issue of a simple supply and demand issue which we can benefit from if there's not a whole lot of new builds. You know this is a major driving variable in in apartment buildings nationally can you give us a little bit of the idea of you know just not being able to keep up with you know population growth in various parts of the country, can you give us a little bit of you know sort of a thousand-foot view on the perspective on how big of an issue that actually is?
Ryan: I don't know if it's that big of an issue you know on on the whole and I think that you know some of these higher growth markets in terms of where we've you know call it the Atlantas and North Carolina markets, Central North Florida, Texas, the inner west regions where we've seen large population growth statistics you know high growth markets but they're also they also tend to be the highest in terms of supply for housing and so it's more easy to build in those markets especially you know out as you get away from the know central cities etc and so where we've seen the the biggest barriers to supply are out on the coast and so we've seen you know job growth be pretty good in those markets but the supply hasn't kept up at all and so that's why you're seeing you know these big you know rent affordability you know problems in the coastal markets and so we think that supply not keeping up with the population dynamics is more of a coastal problem but then you know as you get into the markets that are more accepting of new development then you know we've seen housing supply increase at a rapid clip in many of these other markets I think you know Austin you know even through the June of this year permit activity for multi-family continued to set it reached big big levels and so I think year to date in Austin it's already pulled permits on almost 10,000 units already which is you know huge numbers. And so I do think that while these population growth numbers and some of these markets are you know off the charts especially compared to you know some of the coastal markets, that supply has been able to keep up there and so yeah you see pockets of where you know rent growth you know bumps up to you know five, six percent levels, it's especially that was the case in Phoenix and Las Vegas over the past two to three years where those markets were leading in terms of rent increases but they tend to you know be markets that you know will accept more new supply and so that will tend to even out over the long term.
Buck: How's Vegas doing out of curiosity because that one was just crushing it. It seemed it seemed a little dangerous you know it seemed like one of those markets where it's like wow is it real or is it one of those things that's just gonna go back to Vegas.
Ryan: Yeah exactly and yeah kind of thinking that you know before kind of goes back to your comment earlier about people moving from the coast to getting in their car and driving to the riverside and then Las Vegas and Phoenix and so it was benefiting from a real out-migration from expensive coastal California. That said that just the nature of this pandemic crushing leisure and hospitality and the conference circuit that the job losses in Las Vegas I think you know through April into May led the nation. We've seen some a bit of a bounce back there but really the question is you know how fast does the the conference you know a circuit come back, how fast are people willing to travel to casinos, I know they have already, but I think that pre-corona the growth was real and yeah absolutely now it's a little bit different you know market in terms of the cost and you don't want to go in there and if you're a developer you don't you know want to build a high-rise there and so your strategy is a little bit different but so far it's held up relatively well, all things considered, but still a lot of weakness that is materializing in Vegas.
Buck: Interesting stuff. Well listen I don't want to keep you all day long, Ryan, but it's been great talking to you. Where can we learn more about your work?
Ryan: Sure. Probably the easiest is wittenadvisors.com you can go there, all our contact information is there, feel free to reach out with a phone call or send me an email anytime and I'll be happy to give you more details on the services that we provide and how we add value to many clients that are in either owner, operators, developers, equity or lender clients.
Buck: Fantastic thanks again and we'd love to have you again you know in a few months to reassess where we are at.
Ryan: All right. Sounds good. Looking forward to it.
Buck: We'll be right back

2020.08.03 09:12 thingscanhappen0 Pangs of loneliness like never before

I am a 35 year old guy. I am single and I've never had a long term relationship. My longest relationship lasted a month, maybe. I am lucky to be able to obtain decent education (doctorate level) and I earn decent money to support myself.
TLDR: Read the very last section titled Fast forward to today
Rat Race For last 6 six years, I participated in this rat race that was so common among my peer group. Everyone wanted to climb the promotion ladder in their job, to earn more money, to move to a better apartment, to buy a better car, to be able to afford latest gadgets, to invest in stock markets and what not. As I look back, I did too! My reasons for actively participating in this race were slightly different. Yes, I wanted more money like every one else but more than that I wanted respect of my colleagues that I was a kick-ass engineer. I wanted a promotion more so for the respect that I would get than the money. I wanted that promotion to strongly avoid being subservient to a boss who I thought was not smart enough as me. I didn't want to be under anybody's thumb. I wanted more money so I could afford some luxuries like ordering food online when I wanted to and not having to take public transportation because it hurt my joints (I have arthritis).
Dating I stopped dating about 4 years ago because I wanted to focus on my career. People asked me why I was no longer dating. I told them that it wasn't worth it. I am only 5'2" which is shorter than the average women's height (5'4"). I also have arthritis, a childhood condition that became chronic pain in my mid 20s and has become nearly debilitating since my early 30s. Chronic pain means that I am always in some pain -- even when I am lying in bed. In my 20s I could still walk a little, say, 3/4 mile before "gathering" moderate-to-high grade pain that would last me 2+ days. Debilitating pain meant wearing knee braces 16 hours a day, being in moderate pain round the clock, and not being able to walk 1/4 mile without "gathering" high grade pain that would last me 2+ days. When I used to date about 4 years ago, I realized how important walking was. One girl I met wanted to just walk instead of sit down and talk. Most girls wanted to enjoy going out to the shops or park or beach or somewhere. I don't blame them. Other times, I dated girls who were strictly dating me because of money. I didn't feel any emotional connection to them and they didn't either. One of them basically asked me for money repeatedly for various things. One of them asked me to take them to a jewellery store for shopping. :) The relationships were so weak, emotionless, and transactional that I never had to officially break up with them -- once we stopped texting each other and just forgot about each other.
Friends and Family All of my friends got married and many of them have kids. Those friends return my calls but they've got their own lives and they don't have time for me. Nor do they have the same interests as me anymore. I come from an erstwhile tight-knit family that barely talks to one another. I am estranged from my dad who was always narcissistic but became incredibly manipulative in the last 8 years. It became so bad that talking to him made me incredibly angry and stressed. I stopped talking to him and my mood improved a lot. I still talk to my mom but there's nothing in common. For every topic, she has fiercely different opinions than me and while she always acquiesces to my viewpoint she never agrees. I have tried to meet her half way, I've tried to meet her 3/4th of the way but I can never achieve a heartfelt agreement with her on any topic. She always acquiesces but holds firmly to her point of view and it always feels very superficial. It's never deep. Nowadays, I pick up her call and I tell her what she wants to her as much as I can and that's it. Other family members like siblings and cousins are all married and many of them have two kids. They have their own problems and I am not jealous of them (based on their marital, work, and other problems) but I can't relate to them and they can't relate to me.
In the last 3 years, I went to Las Vegas twice with either relatives or friends my age and I had a bit of fun. But, my fun was always mixed with a lot of arthritic pain. In one of those trips, I felt that my travel companions were fed up of me because I couldn't walk. They were very supportive but it just didn't work out. My relatives did care for me and did want me to be happy in Las Vegas but I just couldn't be happy because (1) I wanted to walk a little bit to enjoy and (2) I had a heavy undercurrent of arthritic pain. Eventually, my relatives realized that may be I just couldn't be happy and they were sort of correct.
Last 9-12 months The last 9-12 months have been weird. Even until Feb 2020, I had a well-thought out plan. I was going to the gym, working out (most physical therapy-type exercises) 4 times a week with two personal trainers. I was eating right, I was losing weight, reducing pain, and building strength and muscle. I was also improving skills needed for my career to get a better job. I used to get lonely on occasion but since I was near people (at work, at the gym, at meetups, etc) it was never bad enough. I honestly thought that I would live the rest of my life that way. I used to compare my problems with the marital problems of my friends and I thought that I was better off. I thought that no one gets to live in bliss (in fact, bliss would become boring soon enough) and that life is about minimizing sadness/misery not eliminating it. My single life did have occasional issues with loneliness but I didn't have marital problems lie my friends did.
Pandemic Then, this pandemic hit. Initially, I was actually a tiny bit happy because: 1. No more commute which meant less pain 2. Less work stress initially because I didn't see office politics on a daily basis 3. I planned to use the saved commute time to improve career skills (and for two months I did!) 4. I thought that the pandemic would be over my fall 2020
I did use some of my time productively. I learned new skills in programming, I read lots of research papers, I submitted proposals (and failed) for conferences. But, there was way too much time on my hands. I started eating dessert every day. It started with one slice of cake a day and moved on to the point where I would eat two dessert servings in one sitting. Pain increased because I got really fat; cholesterol shot through the roof. Office politics came back as people adapted to working from home. And, the pandemic didn't end.
I now realize how much I seeing other human beings in person. Even talking to my gym trainer was relaxing. Going to get coffee with office friends was important. Talking to cashiers in stores, to waitstaff in a restaurant, talking to Lyft/Uber drivers was all important. Even talking to strangers on the street was important. All of those in-person interactions were important because they prevented me from feeling lonely.
Fast forward to today I am feeling pangs of loneliness like I cannot believe. You know that Narcos meme showing a lonely person in various locations? I have done that. I find myself standing at various spots just not knowing what to do or what to think. In my bedroom, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, on the pavement sometimes. I often just take out my phone and pretend to type something so people don't think I am weird but I don't really do anything on my phone.
These pangs of loneliness are like hunger pangs if suddenly don't eat for a day. I have watched a lot of TV & movies online over the last 6 months. I find no joy in any TV/movie. Music sounds bland. Browsing reddit itself has become mechanical. I listened to an audiobook and it kept my attention for a few hours but then I got bored of it too. Reading the news is depressing. I've exchanged messages with friends and it's good for a while but it's also superficial. It helps a little but friends stop replying too.
Honestly, I don't know what to do. This loneliness has become all encompassing. My mind starts to focus on the negative and I actively force it out of my brain. But I cannot keep a happy thought in my mind anymore. This pandemic is not going to go away this year or even next year. Even though the restrictions on outside activities are reduced, the in-person interaction with other people is severely limited and everyone's wearing a mask. No one wants to talk more than what's absolutely needed.
I want advice on what I can do for both short-term and long-term. I know I need to make some changes. What can I do?

2020.07.17 03:01 TotallyPlastic [USA-NV] [H] Intel i5-6600k PC, no GPU [W] Local Cash Pick up, Paypal

Las Vegas Local pickup/meetup only because I don't have the case box anymore, no GPU because I am reusing it.
$600 OBO For the entire system cash heavily preferred
I have all the original boxes except for the case box. I built this in August of 2017 and it was used for about a year before I moved away to college and was unable to bring it with me. From then on, it was only used during a couple of months of the year. Everything is still in very good condition and there is no damage to the case or components. I have decided to sell this so I could build a smaller, portable system. I don't feel comfortable parting out and would heavily prefer if the whole system was purchased. I want to sell ASAP so I can get a mini-itx board as soon as they restock.
Timestamps: https://imgur.com/gallery/sTXj0x7
Specs:
Notes: I have all the motherboard and case accessories like hard drive trays, screws, and brackets. I have more AF120 fans or a spare GPU if you want. I completely cleaned and wiped the system already because someone said they would meet up to buy it but never showed up. Please inquire if you have any questions.

2020.07.08 19:04 LivingVideo Just had the worst recruiter experience in my life

I've been in the industry for over a decade. In that time I had dealt with a lot of bad recruiters, but recently I had one take the cake. He sent me a message on LinkedIn and we setup a time to discuss a potential role. His profile showed that he was a local recruiter who worked for himself and he was located a few neighborhoods away from me (or so I thought). Here is what transpired:
What a fucking ride. Recruiters haven't become this slimy during COVID.... right? This surely can't be the new normal?
Edit: just saw this same guy spam one of the meetup groups I'm in. No shame at all.

2020.07.07 14:52 NEETpride NEET meetup

I currently live in Greensboro, NC and I visit Asheville, Raleigh, or Charlotte every other month. This month I'll def be traveling to Las Vegas and Seattle. I'll probably be visiting the Outer Banks (NC beaches) at the end of the month.
Anyone want to organize a NEET meetup? I'll be traveling with one of my friends regardless of where I go, so there will be at least 3 of us if we meet up.
Travel is cheaper than usual right now because of coronavirus PLUS selling plasma is paying more than usual right now because of coronavirus. This ideal situation will likely last till at least the end of the year, but I won't be traveling quite so much after July.
Could be fun!

2020.06.19 05:50 cassie_to_heart 21 [T4M] Australia - Gals aren't immune to loneliness (depressing vent these past couple of days... weeks). Any understanding guys to listen for a moment?

It's been mentally exhausting and tiring to look for high-quality friendships here on reddit. Am I supposed to consign myself to being lonely and alone, no reliable friends as a 21 yo Mtf trans? Am I supposed to keep hanging on for the notion that "there's always somebody for everyone out there" and "chin up"? That I don't deserve to have such a male best friend to be a confidante?
I've been greatly discouraged to post in many friendship-oriented and people-meeting subs after being met with comments from guys expressing their anti- sentiments towards my interests/hobbies in law enforcement/military let alone, connect with one receptive to mine? I've seen people with specific interests/hobbies not get as much attention compared to people who make low-effort posts but are as general in that they say: Love to laugh, share memes, into astrology, psychology, INFP/ENFP. It makes me puzzled and stumped on what to say to get more support and attention when I post. I resent that it's from my fellow gals that make it seem easy to make male friends.
I even get asked intrusive questions like "Do you have breasts?" or go towards those freaky deaky line of questioning. God forbid I've had my share of transphobic remarks... from both men and "women". Others more obnoxious when they feel entitled for me to vent to them... saying that they're a friend and trying to connect with me, I should be appreciative (Lol they gotta earn that friendship). There's also the ones who simply message "Hey/Hi/Hello" which are a lot of them.
I want someone to tell me the proverbial bs that having hope in finding friendships is worth it (/s), I am this close to giving up. It's easy for them to say when they struck gold... but hey, people like to read positive stories and anything that gives them some measure of hope. No one likes to acknowledge the unspoken reality of people being so unlucky... being so crippling lonely, take it from someone who ends up crying most nights before going to sleep because she can't connect with anyone. Certainly not people in my local area... they'd give strange looks when I tell what I'm interested in, not some of my university colleagues...seeking friendships online is the only way for me.
Gosh, I sound like someone who was in the military having trouble re-integrating into the civilian world. I feel like I could only connect to guys and people in those professions... background, experiences, outlook in life... career even. How the frack do I make people interested when I share that one of my interests is to listen police scanners and learn trivial things like Chicago PD officers are terrible at making sure their radios aren't on open mic... with dispatch reminding them often to watch their keys? That the 2008 US Army standard issue of the Vomelette MRE was as palatable as dogs vomit. Or watching videos of cop-roleplay videos in modded-GTA V LSPDFR, where doing the process of paperwork and responding to call-outs seem appealing to me....
I'm not the perfect girl or girl-to-be interested in anime, Animal crossing etc. for many guys. My interests/hobbies are what I built up, and they mean a lot to me, from a time where I had none. I want to feel like it matters somehow... to me. It's not a waste of time that I mustered up my interests.
So for people out there, what could they possible tell me that will make it easier to form connections? Go on Meetup, go to social clubs etc... as if they're are any that are receptive to my interests, they're so specific I doubt many people can understand me.
I don't want to stick myself in the pit full of other lonely people, I don't want a daily reminder of what it's like to have no connections whatsoever from anyone. Why aren't I allowed to chase something that I want... under my own terms and no-one to undermine that in any fashion?
On some tangential note, I am also feeling down with the current state of affairs (strangely not the pandemic) but with the protests going on, I've read a news article about a cop from LVPD (Las Vegas PD) who was shot in the head by a careless vigilante-to-be two weeks ago, who "miraculously" lived but caveat that he's paralyzed from the neck down, unable to speak and on a ventilator... perhaps permanently. A man being robbed of his livelihood, ambition and happiness. As if isn't more depressing than the protests. An undeserved price to pay in terms of what's going on, with it being hard on both sides. It was news which I was actively attuned to, wouldn't lie in that it felt like it was irrationally eating away at me for a couple of days now. Made me think on the outlook of life. People say there's more to life. It's not too late.... yeah, hard to think what is there to look forward to when your life is reduced to being feed purees by family for the rest of your life and muscles atrophying. I'm generally pessimistic so it doesn't help.
Y'know the humorous bit? I'm studying Nursing so as a student nurse, it's sometimes hard knowing the prospective patients you might encounter. Oh, and people expect nurses to be sociable, outgoing... beaming with smiles and radiating confidence. I certainly don't fit the fracking bill.
Rant over.
Disclaimer: Not expecting any friendships because I lost all expectations whatsoever and just decided to frack all.

It's been mentally exhausting and tiring to look for high-quality friendships here on reddit. Am I supposed to consign myself to being lonely and alone, no reliable friends as a 21 yo Mtf trans (who is pre HRT and not yet transition yet)? Am I supposed to keep hanging on for the notion that "there's always somebody for everyone out there" and "chin up"? I'm settling on friendships because it is somewhat more feasible than any hope of a relationship, and the latter alone would be more preferable in that people don't have to have high hopes for me to be their match

It's not too late.... yeah, hard to think what is there to look forward to when your life is reduced to being feed purees by family for the rest of your life and muscles atrophying. I'm generally pessimistic so it doesn't help.
Y'know the humorous bit? I'm studying Nursing so as a student nurse, it's sometimes hard knowing the prospective patients you might encounter. Oh, and people expect nurses to be sociable. I certainly don't fit the fracking bill.
Rant over.
EDIT: That's what you get, you b*tch. Don't mess with me. Because I'm not afraid to punch back. u/Big_Wedding_1088
