I moved to this city because I heard it was a good place to make money.
The small towns in WA are actually good if you want to get lost and step away from city life for a while.
There are millions of acres of woods and wilderness where you can find tiny towns and clusters of houses. As tranquil and relaxing as this may be, for a younger woman who is ambitious and wants to make some cash, it is not that great. As soon as I had graduated middle school and saved up a few hundred bucks, I drove 200 miles to start over in Seattle, WA. My first job was at a weed dispensary, which at that point had been our dream job for years. As an avid cannabis smoker, I thought that laboring at a dispensary would be the perfect fit. The fact that the dispensary was in Seattle made it all the sweeter, and for a couple of years I was enjoying our work. The concern came not because the job changed, even though I realized I didn’t want to be middle aged and still laboring as a Seattle budtender. I still kept our job at the dispensary, but also started taking night classes at the Seattle tech trade school. I wanted to stay in Seattle, because it felt like home, but laboring at the dispensary would only take myself and others so far in life. Eighteen weeks later I got our certification in Heating and Air Conditioning repair, and started laboring for a local Seattle company. Sporadically I miss laboring at the dispensary.
