What I liked

A lot of new experiences that I would have never gone through coming from a big city like LA. Paisley is a tiny town in the middle of nowhere and it’s nice getting away from everything and taking a break. The pay and the hospitality my boss provides is amazing and in return he expects his employees to work hard. I liked that I had no idea how to operate any of the tractors or even drive a manual but just in a few weeks I learned not only how to operate my machinery but also the tools I needed to repair damages to my machine.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had a little more time to train and run but it’s okay because I knew going into the job that it was going to be really hard to fit anything in my schedule while working about 70hrs a week.


Unplug yourself from social media and get out to experience what it’s like to be in a small town. Enjoy the little things like going for a hike or going fishing . Learn some new skills and pay attention to your surroundings.
