How to make it in rural America

In the fall of 2011, I moved to a rural part of California called Kern County, which stretches from the Mojave Desert to the edge of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

It’s the second-most populated county in the state, and I thought it would be a great place to work.

I found a job with the Fresno County Democratic Party, a small political party in a rural county that’s more than 60 percent white.

It was a great way to make connections in a small town, and it gave me a foothold in the political world.

I also met some local farmers and got to know some of them.

It also gave me an opportunity to make some friends.

It wasn’t always easy growing up in a farming community, but after a while I realized I could make a good living, learn new things, and find good friends.

And I think that’s really important.

If you’re young, rural, and you’re a little nervous, there are many things you can do to feel secure, like be aware of your own vulnerability, or to feel a sense of camaraderie and a sense that you’re in this for the long haul.

There’s a lot of work to be done before we’re able to get to that point.

So here’s what I did to prepare for my first year of working in rural California.


Write down everything you’re good at and know.

It is not a good idea to do anything unless you can remember it, or you can think about it later, or it’s on your calendar.

I wrote down everything I could think of in my head.

My resume was a little sparse, but I wrote it down so I could see how many opportunities I could have.

I made sure to include the things that I enjoyed doing.

I didn’t list them in the job description.


Set aside some time.

For most people, the first thing you need to do is set aside time to think about what you’re doing and what you can learn.

That can take up to a few days.

When you’re not working, just think about the next step in your career.

Do you want to be a lawyer?

Do you like being in a big company?

Do things like that?

When you have time, try to think of the next steps in your life.

If that means being a writer, a chef, or a musician, set aside a few weeks.


Don’t underestimate your limitations.

You can never have everything.

There will always be a few people who want to hire you and they might not have the time or the energy to get you through the entire process.

I always felt like I could do it, so I was okay with that.


Don.t think about your future.

You have the freedom to make any decision you want.

The more time you put into it, the more confident you’ll be in your ability to do it.

You don’t have to do this job forever.

You could always move on and do something else.


Take the right steps.

The key to getting to this point is to make sure you’re on the right path.

You’ll learn a lot more if you follow through and try to do things right, like not getting too caught up in your own work and the day-to-day things that people like me have to deal with, or not being too caught in the routine.

I think you can’t learn anything about your life if you’re living in a bubble.

So if you’ve ever thought, “I can’t do this,” you can probably start by taking steps to make your life a little more manageable.

I started by writing down everything that I did and my favorite thing that I like to do.

I would like to be more creative, and to write.

I like making things and I like spending time with people.

When I’m in my home town, I make music and I play instruments.

My favorite thing is to play piano, and that’s what my favorite music teacher, the late David Foster Wallace, taught me to do, because it gives me a lot.

I can’t be a painter or a sculptor, so when I’m working with materials I like, I like drawing or I like sculpting.

And when I go to a restaurant, I try to eat there with my family.

I enjoy the things I do. 6.

Keep it simple.

One of the best ways to build your confidence is to do simple things.

That means making the most of your time.

There are things you should be doing that you can only do once a week, like going to work every day.

There aren’t things you have to make every day, like making a video of yourself doing your job every morning, or doing your yoga class every morning.

So do simple tasks and try not to do too many things at once. 7. Do
