A job opportunity has opened up for me next year. I would be running a music program in a small town near to my hometown. Dopers on here know I long to get closer to my home turf. It would be an hour away from home rather than the 2 1/2 hours I am right now. That also means I am only an hour away from my girlfriend. The cost of living is way lower there, and I could probably enter the real estate market.
The only caveats are that is a very small town, about 2000 people. But it’s so close to home I could always go home on weekends. I could make some decent $$ over the next few years. I went to the schools and they were not as well funded as where I am now, but the kids seem very nice and warm. It also seems quite cultural for a small town (there is a dance hall there and lots of people play music)
It seems really awesome! I could imagine myself going there for three years buying a small house and then hopefully selling it when I leave to go on further adventures! I could build up my music / media studio. Another bonus is it will be grade 5 - 12 music and band, and hence my resume will be STACKED upon completion. I hope to be very hireable after.
It seems pretty awesome to me! But i’ve never lived in a town that small, what do you dopers think?
