When I graduated school with a degree in engineering, I falsely assumed that it would be easier to find a full time job in our city.
- My frustration grew to outright panic when 6 months had elapsed as well as I was still working at the pretzel rest in the local shopping mall.
A neighbor of mine gave me fantastic advice to broaden the scope of our job search to other states as well as cities. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to look all over the country, which is what I decided to do. After a week or more than one of widening our search scope, I started to see options in states out west. Although I had never been to NM, nor had I ever thought about living there, I saw multiple openings at a dealer that is based out of Albuquerque. Right when I found this job, I saw a news article about recent marijuana legalization in NM, as well as that pushed me to accept the offer. Now that I’m living in Albuquerque, I can’t imagine being someplace else. The attractive Rio Grande River cuts through the heart of the city, as well as there are natural monuments on opposite ends. The Petroglyph National Monument can be found west of West Mesa, while the Sandia mountains are just east of Loma Del Ray as well as state road 556. If I want something to do on the weekends, I’ll pack a joint as well as head to the Cibola National Forest to take a good hike. Albuquerque is roughly 5,600 feet above sea level, so the un-even temperatures are much more moderate as well as comfortable compared to another sizable metropolitan desert town like Phoenix.
