Re: Need life advice about job offer from fellow drummers.
If you could work at the fun job for 6 months and then relocate if necessary to a similar job with better pay and insurance, that would work.
I can tell stories all day about healthy people that wake up with some hideous shit. I woke up with a 104 fever one morning, took a cab to the hospital and spent 6 days there as they tried to figure it out. They couldn't. So for no reason, I was sick and maybe that would have cost $100K? More? That nice house you have? Goodbye.
Get a plan and look into other companies.for down the line.
