I have a big decision to make, and I don't think I can do it alone! Let me explain:
I live in California, but the rest of my family lives in Pennsylvania. I moved to Cali to go to school here, and I am finishing up in June. My Aunt has a dairy in northeastern PA. I've been traveling up to see her every summer, helping around with the animals and doing simple chores such as milking and feeding and answering the telephone. I'm a sucker when it comes to working with animals - I simply love it, and she has a whole farm-full.
I was planning on staying in California... until she offered me a job working full-time on her dairy for the next seven months. I'd fly out in June and stay until the end of December. I wouldn't be paid much, which is fine for now, and I'd have a much longer list of work to do, which is also A-Okay for me. I love her animals and I know the farm practically like the back of my hand. She's offering me free boarding for my future horse (I was planning on getting one here, but if I'm moving up there this summer I'd be buying it up there).
I like California, but it would be fun working full-time with so many animals. Should I leave where I am now and pursue this opportunity? Or should I look for a better job more locally?
