Boring single life in Redmond

Microsoft yikes__

Weird that I'm posting this at odd time.

Recently moved and feels like summer is getting over.

Also, It feels like people are not into social life much.
Get the work done and go home.

    Not sure why you emphasized singe in your title, but if you're hoping a girlfriend/boyfriend will solve your quarter life crisis, I have some bad news for you. Go do some social activities in the area, join a sports league, join a rock climbing gym, start cycling, etc do something with other people. Good luck!

      Get involved in something! Put yourself out there. People I see complain about the Seattle freeze never do anything other than expect someone else to include them.

      It will not matter in the slightest where you live if you never get involved.

    • What are the things that you can get involved into?

      Cooking classes, every kind of sport, music (playing and listening) card, board, other types of games, watching sports, creating art, etc.

      Meetup can help you get connected with local groups doing what your interests are.

      Bellevue > Seattle. Downtown Seattle is like being in a real life zombie movie.

    Yo there’s so much to do in Seattle! Like hiking... and hiking.... and that’s about it.

    Sorry but do a transfer to NYC and enjoy your youth, come back to Redmond when you’re married so you have someone to suffer this boring ass city with.

    We didn’t even start getting sun until two weeks ago... but the last week it’s been cloudy. I honestly think we’ve gotten like 10 sunny days so far this summer and that’s it.... and summers about to be over 😂😂

      Actually this summer has been much better than the last two when even the sunny days had bad air quality

      For air quality I agree, but we’ve gotten very little sunny days like I said. It’s been cloudy the past 10 days.

      Jesus that sounds horrible. How do you guys survive without the sun.

      Next 15 days are sunny. 🌞
      It's Seattle's secret that it doesn't rain here as much as people say. The only problem is the gray and gloomy winters, so that way Seattle is not for everyone.

      I see. Yeah I could never live in such a weather. I can do NYC weather just fine even with it’s extremities but gray and gloomy would sap me out of energy. I need the sun I guess. But many people are very happy in pnw with it’s vast natural beauty around.
      I envy the fact that you guys can just drive an hour and are in some of the most beautiful landscapes America has to offer

    Many of us have families—that’s why we work at Microsoft.

    Op, 'Seattle freeze 'is real. So much so, that they have a wiki page on it.
