pre-decision decisions

Though I have no idea if I will actually get any job offers, I am in complete arrest because I cannot decide what I want to do.
So, I leave it to my blogging friends to help me decide. If I have any left, since it's been so long since I've posted.
Here are the job interviews thus far:
Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. Teaching load--3/3 (creative nonfiction)
Susquehanna State University in Selinsgrove, PA. Teaching load--3/3 (poetry)
Alfred University, WAY upstate New York. Teaching load--3/3 (poetry)
Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL Teaching load--3/2 (creative nonfiction)
Westfield State College, in Western MA Teaching load--4/4 (poetry).

If you know any one at or anything about these places and want to give me a little insight about what jobs sound best, I'd be happy to hear.

I think you can't decide until you meet the people and visit. It's tempting to decide you can or cannot live in Michigan, for example, but what if it's beautiful and has a great wine bar downtown?
But of the jobs, Florida sounds the best. Not just the load, but I think creative non-fiction is the way to go.
Good luck. You'll be fantastic. Just be yourself (ha! Another cliche!) and smile.

Alfred is in the middle of nowhere. It is notorious for having nothing to do. I was in the public library there, it was a shoebox. It is also very hilly, which means you end up making a huge physical effort to go anywhere. Because of it's lack of things to do, drinking alcohol seems to be the major pass time. But if you like being somewhere out in the country... heck you might even see some otters!
