      • Well, I use that term kinda loosely. Yes, we have a farm. But it’s pretty small-scale, and not primary income source. As for why, it was experiencing farm life daily for 3 months that swayed me. My wife was raised on a farm, which pushed us this way too. But, when I was in OT school, part of our requirements are 2 3-month level 2 fieldworks to be completed before graduating. My second one was in the vincinity of her family’s farm, so I stayed with them during my internship. I worked the farm every afternoon and every other weekend to earn my keep. Bush hogging, setting hay, delivering calves, laying fence, etc, etc. It was fantastic. I loved being outside all the time, and I kinda prefer physical labor and being covered in dust and dirt. It just clicked with me. I’d do it full time if I thought I could make a comparable living at it….and if I actually knew what the heck I was doing. 😃

      • There is something about being outside and working. Time ceases to exist and it does create an incredible sense of satisfaction.

      • As the new guy in the garage, I was on the graveyard shift in a cab with no radio, so it was roaming where there might be fares and hoping for one to the airport. Also, Chicago has a strange street naming pattern. On the South Side, the East-West streets are named with numbers, but not so on the North Side, so I had to learn those (I did have a little cheat book.) Anyway it was hard, but I met a lot of interesting people. I was happy when I got the next job (Public Aid caseworker) and could quit the cab.
