2 more weeks in the Permian Basin

My time here in the Midland/Odessa area has been well spent. I got to spend some time with my family (the longest amount of time since I left for college in 2000). I was able to work in different facilities and learn what the real world of physical therapy is going to be like. I have witnessed one of the wettest Summer's in the history of the Permian Basin. Lastly I got to live rent free for about five months and celebrate my mom's birthday with her. Even though I have family ties in this area I would not want to live here to start my career. I've been asked at 2/3 of my rotations here if I was going to come back after I graduated, and at the place I am now the supervisor and a couple of the therapist continue to offer me bribes to stay here. I just laugh and let them know that I am not saying never, but moving back is not in my current plans.

I look forward to moving to the metroplex in a couple of weeks and spending the next four months with former roommates and college friends. What I don't look forward to is the drive to work through the Dallas/Fort Worth traffic. It is also going to be nice being that much closer to graduation and beginning my life as a real physical therapist (after passing the National Physical Therapy Examination) and making my own money. So those of you who currently live in the metroplex and read this blog I will be there in late August, give me a hollar.

Things I want to do while in Dallas/Fort Worth:
1) Watch Cody Blair coach football
2) See Garza on the sideline next to jr. high kids
3) Witness the phenomenon that is Coach Mark Rex Gibson

Ya can't beat rent free! I am sure you will enjoy getting out on your own and into your profession. DFW is great! You will have a blast!

It will also put you that much closer to an airport with a non-stop flight to Nashville... think about it. Miss you.
