Nervous about moving to Silicon Valley and dating as a guy from a small city

2022.01.21 20:09 yet_another_account5 Nervous about moving to Silicon Valley and dating as a guy from a small city

I’m a mid/late 20s guy from a small city and may get a dream job offer at a philanthropic foundation in Silicon Valley. It’s the kind of job with great benefits and work life balance and would be really meaningful and all that but the catch is the pay and career path basically starts and tops out at a modest, middle class lifestyle but with solid stability.
I’m also single and would probably be hoping to meet my person there and settle down. I’ve read a bunch of posts about dating in the bay and am getting nervous enough to consider not taking the job if I get it. Building a good family and having time to be with them is super important to me.
I’m pretty emotionally mature, decently good looking (but no model by any means), on the short side of average height, and am pretty smart with interesting hobbies. I just don’t aspire to be rich and it seems from these posts like that’s really what you need to have a chance at being successful as a guy in the bay. The classic rich and successful vibe.
I’m a little worried about getting eaten alive by a type a dating scene as someone looking for a person who’s just like in a stable place and is happy with a middle class family existence in a nice area to live. Am I overreacting to all these threads?

2022.01.21 20:09 Yelling_Apple Classical music is honestly the best genre of music.

What other types of music can demonstrate so many emotions? It can have fear, sorrow, happiness, just to name a few. A few good composers you can listen to if you're new to the genre are Hans Zimmer and John Williams. Modern day rap and pop songs are honestly most of the time the same stuff and is usually trash. But there are some good ones, but personally classical is the one that never gets old to me, no matter how much I listen to the same tracks over and over.

2022.01.21 20:09 JiggaRob Let's talk using audio interfaces on android!

Hi all. Looking for a discussion!
This has surprised me massively. It's been so long since ive not been able to find anwers on the internet... so i'm coming to you guys.
Searching online there's hardly any information at all. Even links that advertise themselves as being relevant, once you go in the word 'android' is barely used at all and it quickly becomes apparent it's mainly pc/mac and ipad related. No i am not interested in using these instead (i already use a pc and boycott apple. I'm curious specifically about android, and growing the knowledge base).
There's a handful of videos on youtube but really not too informative at all beyond just plugging one in. Not developed enough of a topic for there to be troubleshooting vids, tutorials or comparison vids between interfaces used with android etc. Etc.
I'm a musician and do some home recording, and on a separate note would love to be able to use my condensor with smule. I already own a roland quad capture, so using a usb c to ogg cable i gave that a try today. I have a samsung note 9 (android 10), and a samsung tab s7+ (android 11).
The functionality was odd. So the interface powered up and was using the mic as an external audio device, but the output device remained as the phone speaker. The audio interface also had no effect on the gain, and I found that the microphone was therefore clipping with no way for be to be able to alter the gain or input volume. Connecting bluetooth earphones then took over as the sound output device when connected, while the input remained as the audio interface.
There is also VERY limited information on changing audio device in android other than for bluetooth devices, and nothing relevant about altering mic input levels - just a host of useless apps that allow you to within their own audio note recording apps with no effect on the rest of the system, any advice in activating developer mode to do so is innacurate and presumably outdated as everything I could find tells you for starters to go to settings then 'system', which in itself doesn't exist (at last on samsung) and in developer options there's only one (irrelevant) option under media.
I have a cex voucher to use and have considered getting either a presonus audiobox usb 96 or presonus audiobox itwo.
I found this information on the presonus site which is interesting
They dont advertise use with android anywhere else on their site or on any of their products, but that page gives a list of interfaces that should work.
It says wall powered work best so perhaps i'll go for the itwo, though this one has a usb 'type A' port where i'm guessing you'd essentially put a regular charging cable in to connect to your device. Not sure if the lack of usage of a usb c to OGG cable would have implications or not. Feel like I've read somewhere the ogg is essential.
What do you reckon? Beefy topic! Would love if we could generate discussion so people online can find answers in the future.

It cost us nothing to HODL, what would happen if for the next couple weeks noone added one dime to the market? Do they need our money to survive? Would HF destroy each other if we didn't keep feeding their currupt machine?? I'm just curious, we seem to have the power, what's the best way to use it, take away the 1 thing they have had a constant supply of for years and years. 🦍❤️🦍🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀

How do I make a Gm sus4 chord not sound like simply GCDG? Like it has no minor feel to it without that Bb. I don’t understand how you can even call something a Gmsus4 without the third.
