Maybe try Cornell community sailing (Merrill family sailing center)?

Hello everyone,

I am a 20 year old college student with currently 20k savings. I am currently working an internship where I expect to end the summer with around $30k savings.

So, I am currently in college, but I have a scholarship that pays for everything, including food. So I will have effectively no expenses this next year and I will have no debt. I plan to probably join the workforce pretty quickly after graduating and expect to start off making $60k-70k/year in a small city/not too expensive area. I also don’t have much in bills, my family pays for my gas, car insurance, health insurance. All I pay for is food, clothes, recreation, etc but I don’t spend much on that.

I currently have $20k in savings and $1.5k in crypto that I grew from ~1k. My goal here is to find the safest way to grow the 20k in savings near potentially 5% a year, and to further contribute to in the future (I honestly don’t know if this is a high or low percentage for a safe investment). I would be ok with using 1-2k in a higher risk investment as well. I have very limited knowledge of investing, I briefly used robinhood a year or two ago to buy a couple stocks which I ended up selling after a couple months.

Thanks for any help!

Out of curiosity, what field are you looking to get into to get $60-70k per year while not in a major city?

There are certainly jobs that net you that kind of starting salary, but most of them are in high cost of living areas from what I understand. That could factor into scenario analysis for your plans.

Currently my internship is in optical engineering and they are paying me $26/hr. And the company usually hires their interns. I know it’s not a guaranteed job, but I think it’s pretty likely if I were to apply. Rent around here is around $600/month. Most semiconductor related jobs will start you off 50-60k a year, and majority of them are located just outside of smaller cities with manageable rent.

Hello,

I’m 20 years old with around ~20k savings and would like to hear what you guys think is the best to do with that money. I have no debts, and I have ~2k in crypto that I grew from 1k. Other than that, I just have 20k in savings, which I feel like is a complete waste, as I could be growing it further. I don’t want to put any more into crypto, as it’s way too risky.

Any guidance would be much appreciated!

Edit: I should mention that I still have a year left of school, and my school pays for my housing, food, etc.

Down payment on a house is pretty reasonable

Thank you very much for the reply, I should mention that I still have a year left of college. My school pays for my housing, so that isn’t something I’d have to worry about for at least another year.

Do you plan on living in a building in a year?

It would probably depend on where I get a job. Eventually getting a house is definitely on my radar, but I’d have to settle into an area first before I make any decisions like that. Also, if I stay in my hometown, my parents will let me live at home if need be.

Oh, I didn’t really see the title as sarcasm, but I could kinda see that now.

Hello everyone,

I have absolutely no idea the first thing about graphics cards, so I was hoping I could get some good information here. I have a lenovo t540p laptop (was gifted to me), that currently uses an intel hd graphics 4600 card. I have no idea what that really means, if its good or bad. My goal is to play fortnite at a decent fps, is upgrading a graphics card the way to achieve this? From what I understand I want a card with high bandwith. Would a $100 graphics card be any better than the current graphics card I have?

Thank you!

I made a presentation in graphics cards and how they work including branding/pricing and what you should look for in one for school, when i get home I’ll dm you a link

Awesome, thank you so much!

The others already answered on the "can I upgrade" part.

I'll answer to "what the hell is the Intel HD 4600". While this is a "graphics card" in the sense that it processes graphics, it's the integrated graphics chip that's part of your CPU, that Intel bundles with it.
Its purpose it to be a low-power chip that will display graphics and handle very lightweight GPU-accelerated tasks (decoding a video for example). It's generally far weaker than a dedicated graphics circuit with its own memory, though of course there are some that are very weak too.

It's certainly not built with gaming performance in mind in any case, and as such will run 3D games with extremely poor performance on the lowest settings and at very low resolution. You can certainly play some very old 3D games or some 2D pixel-art games with it, though.

Since this is all what some people have, they still try to run 3D games with those integrated graphics chip, so you can have an idea of the performance it'll get in Fortnite, for example. Though for whatever reason, Intel used the same name for the iGPU of their desktop and laptop CPUs for the 4th gen, so googling/Youtubing for "Intel HD 4600 Fortnite" returns results mostly for desktop CPUs, in which the iGPU is far better.

Wow, thank you very much for this response. Is there a good resource for someone who knows literally 0 about computer/laptop hardware to learn more. I feel like it’s fairly important knowledge to have.

Thank you again.

Aspen heights/block 75 usually have a lot of students trying to sublease their apartments during summer. It’s usually 1.1k/month, but some of them are desperate to sublet and will go a bit lower.

Is this an official loopring video? How can they claim that trading will be faster. Trading on a centralized exchange is nearly instant, trading through a decentralized protocol relies on the blockchain it is operating on. For ethereum, it will not beat the trading times of most centralized exchanges. Everything else in the videos looks great, but that seems a little misleading.

You have to send your coins to the centralized wallet before you can trade, in the case of Bitcoin around an hour.

Yea but each trade in the exchange is instant, which is important to a lot of people. Not the same for loopring

Are you using the reddit mobile app? I’ve been having problems playing videos at times on the app.

This also helps with drowsiness during the day. I’ll have my window of eating after my classes, now I rarely fall asleep in class. I’ve found eating lunch then going to class can knock me out if the class isn’t interesting. It also helps me eat healthier, as I used to snack on absolute shit at night, but now I just don’t eat at night.

If you are interested, you can start with an 8 hour eating period 16 hour fasting period, and see if it’s the thing for you. I judged my friends for doing it, but decided to give it a try and I love it.

And like another commenter said, it’s not the end of the word if you break a fast to be social or something. You can pick it right back up.

I’m a big walton fan, but maybe a lot/most of the “fud” is well deserved. Two days after their twitter snafu, which put a bad taste in most everybody’s mouth, they announce a huge partnership. Then a day later, after hardcore Walton fans made a fool of themselves talking Walton up, they delete their partnership tweet possibly topping how bad they looked with the giveaway. I sold my Walton immediately after they deleted that tweet, I may or may not buy back in later.

It’s important to take off the rose tinted glasses and look at the project you are invested in. I still believe in the idea, but something funky is going on with their team, at least their PR team.

And that is why you left and that’s ok. Their PR is not going to be their legacy, and that is why I stay.

see more

Great point, that’s why I hope to buy back in later at some point once this blows over. PR is important though and walton’s doesn’t reflect well on the team.

Look at my post history, do a search for V whatever the fuck that is, I literally have no clue what that coin is. I own 466 walton.

Completely with you. I love Walton as well, but Jesus, this past week has not been good for Walton. This sub needs to stop blaming it on fud and just take the small loss for now, hopefully we will get some good answers from the ama.

This is what gives crypto a bad rep

Making a deal with alibaba to bring real life solutions brings crypto a bad rep? Walton is obviously terrible with western PR, but I’m pretty sure this recent deal cements themselves as a legitimate project, if the other multiple partnerships/deals didn’t already.

So about that deal with alibaba..

Yea lol thanks, I sold at 21 after that. Oh well... may buy in later.

I agree with you, but I definitely understand where people are coming from with the latest twitter snafu. People are just being cautious.

To be fair, the idea is to add inflation to keep a relatively stable currency. It’s not a secret, if you are “invested” you should know and expect that.

1% inflation has nothing to do with what we're talking about

Ah, gotcha. I’m just an idiot, don’t mind me.

Not op, but I fast similarly . I poop everyday at the same time every morning. Occasionally if I didn’t get everything out in the morning I’ll have another quick session later in the day. But nothing is affected, at least for me, in terms of size/consistency/etc.

I’m fairly familiar with MEMS, and I’m confused as to why you believe MEMS could compete with wtc. MEMS isn’t a necessarily new/emerging technology.

It could potentially be interesting to integrate a MEMS device into an rfid sensor of some sort to improve wtc sensors, but off the top of my head I can’t think of anything game-changing. For most MEMS use cases you would also need a power source and some way to process signals.

But it is also my understanding that there are a couple IC experts on their team, which has a lot in common with MEMS fabrication/processing. So I wouldn’t be too worried.

Oh yeah, because corporations passed all that wealth down when the economy was good. Go lick boots somewhere else.

He is right, small and medium businesses will be hurting just as much, if not more than large corporations. Its certainly debatable whether money trickles down from tax cuts, but it’s not debatable when businesses lose money/have to pay more for services, jobs are cut everywhere.
