Best: got an offer from Google.

Worst: family and friends trying to convince me to turn down the offer and take a local job.

(I'm from a small town where family is everything to everyone and leaving is blasphemous.)

    Judging by your bio, you took the job? Hahah

    I feel you. As wrong as it is, I value my work and mark on the world over my family in a lot of ways; only child syndrome probably. Where as my gf (only friend i chose to have) and most other humans are the opposite.

    Don’t be silly. You can always visit your family.

    Uhh fuck that. I'm from a small town too, but you can best bet my ass is hitting the road as soon as I have enough saved up to start paying rent for an apartment.

    It's all about job opportunities, and small towns don't have shit to offer me. 🤷

    Devrant does have a diverse set of users in terms of workplace too.

    Welcome to DevRant.

    And I hope you get enough holidays to visit your parents often.

    Happy holidays.

    @Nanos haha by local I meant within an approximate 100 mile radius. I mean it is mind numbingly small where my small town is.

    Choosing what your family wants is a bad choice.
