Location! Location! Location!
Yesterday, I began soliciting suggestions for evening comment diversions (email yours), and I’ve already got a few to run with. Keep sending your ideas.
Tonight’s question comes from Trouble, a recent delurker. The predicament:
“I’m finishing up my Masters’ Degree in Education at the perfect time: when they’re firing all the teachers here in Florida! So I’m getting the hell out of here (Florida, that is). What’s a good city for a single, over-educated gal to relocate? I’m willing to move almost anywhere as long as it gets me the hell out of Florida and away from the Rat (Disney).”
All right, folks. Run with it. And try to refrain from self-serving suggestions. And while I have no idea how the hiring goes here in Portland, Maine, I’d suggest it. It really is a fantastic town: A mini-Boston, of sorts. Plenty of bars. A well-educated populace. Modestly priced for school teachers. It’s on the ocean. And we’re the fifth state in the nation to allow gay marriages. Plus, here in Portland, the Green Party is actually viable, if that’s your thing, hippie.
The winters, though, are brutal. Get a place with a short driveway.
