Pro: This is not as stigmatized as it is in the US/Canada and other areas of the world.I am trying to find a better place mentally here and started seeing a therapist.
I don't mind that, but I hate it when others are opinionated and unknowledgeable.People are too opinionated with being knowledgeable
When 40% of your "Good Things" list are based around affordability and the power of your dollar to buy you stuff, you'll never be happy here. Perhaps a good topic to explore with your therapist.Rescueme said:I acknowledge that I am an obnoxious ass but I really appreciate the fact that many of you over looked this to offer your help and opinion about my problem with my neighbor making too much noise. I am trying to find a better place mentally here and started seeing a therapist. The first exercise she gave me was to list the things I like about Buenos Aires and the things I dont. I know there are many things that I am missing about what there are to like. I am hoping that someone can open my eyes to the things that I am missing.

Now we have the nub of it, why half of the posts here are either about how crap the place is or the price of coffee. If you find happiness in a cheque book, then you will not find it here. If however you look to beauty, pace of life, and relationships, then you are on the right road.syngirl said:When 40% of your "Good Things" list are based around affordability and the power of your dollar to buy you stuff, you'll never be happy here.

In my 4 years here the price of many things has more than doubled -- if I based my happiness around things being cheap, I'd be a miserable bitch by now.
I agree with you on this! I love taking classes & learning new things. I'd love to know where you are taking classes. Can you PM me some details?studiodio said:and i love it that i can take all sorts of tallers and classes.... puppets, life drawing, stone carving, dancing (and not just tango)... the cultural centers in each neighborhood are just amazing for classes and for stopping by and finding something going on,,,,
