I found a prime location (45 minutes from 3 large cities- meaning three places I could start my vet clinic) lot of land, 14.5 acres, meadows, forests, wetlands, for $59k.
My dad is considering making an offer on this land (we are going to look at it tomorrow). He says the mortgage will be so small, property tax is only $300/year, so it is basically like nothing.
If we decide to buy this land, this will be the future site of my farm. Building a house and everything up from the ground all by myself. My dad said if I change my mind, in 7 years the worth of the land will go up enough to make him some money anyways since this is also prime cottage country and right near a tourist village.
I probably shouldn't be saying this, cause like what are the odds seriously, but the very thought that my dreams are so close makes me tremble and brings tears to my eyes. I think my parents finally get that becoming a farmer is a part of my soul that will never fade away. They used to laugh at me but after I broke down about them making fun of me, I think they realized that I'm serious, and they even admitted they are proud of how much knowledge I already have about everything from crop planting to sheep breeds. Which in itself is a huge victory. Cause, not like I needed their approval for my life choices, but having it is still amazing, especially for such a radical idea.
I want to be outside 14 hours a day, herding sheep, outsmarting wolves and foxes, sweaty and gross, growing food, selling food, teaching people to reconnect with their food. I could write a novel about this deep feelings of how I know exactly what I should be doing with my life.
I tell you now friends, there is no feeling more powerful than knowing you were born to do something. And at times that feeling can be quite torturous.
Anyways I'm gonna stop now cause I just can't handle the emotions. @_@ Sorry guys I really have no one to tell this to that won't think I'm off the wall. Cause you guys already know I am.
