Me again....

two new interviews. Great sounding job with a consulting firm in Houston vs. excellent military contractor job in desert town twentynine palms, CA.

Any thoughts on this? I realize these are totally different places, and that is of course why I am stumped.

I think the desert is beautiful, and I have a friend in nearby Victorville. But I fear it may be just too isolated for me, even for a good job. Though I love the fact I could drive to Las Vegas or San Diego for weekends.

Houston....just seems so darn hot, muggy, and never pictured myself moving there. Though it does seem appealing in many ways (things to do, cost of living, friendly people, proximity to other Texas cities and ocean)


Thanks in advance.

PS. I am single 31 female.....
