I've been offered a job in Christchurch, and I'm trying to decide whether to take it!
There are a lot of factors involved. The money is a bit less than I make in the U.S., even factoring in the cost of living and exchange rate. I have three cats that I insist on bringing along, which will be expensive. I've never been to New Zealand and I don't know anyone there in person.
On the other hand, the job opportunity is really exciting. My grandmother's family lives in and around Chch, and I've been connecting with them online. The political climate in the U.S. is really starting to scare me. I already live across the country from most of my family and friends, and I don't have any very strong connections in the city where I live now.
It's a tough decision, so I'm not really sure what to do.
