I’ve found over the years that the things I love most about the world and about people are often the things others dislike the most. Differences tend to terrify people – not understanding others, not knowing what makes them tick… that “fear” of the unknown divides people. But those are the things that draw me to people. I’m perpetually curious and appreciate the qualities that make us so different. I’m always intrigued by people whose life experience has been drastically dissimilar to my own – people whose beliefs, habits, hobbies, occupations, dialects, cultures, etc present so much exposure, so much to learn, consider, and discuss. I’ve always taken a genuine interest in people. I will never understand how the very things that make me fall in love with the world around me are the exact things that spur so much hatred and division among others.

The oilfield isn’t a job… it isn’t just a career. It’s a lifestyle. We don’t live our lives out in days. We live our lives out in hitches, always thinking 8 weeks ahead. We don’t plan based on how we can arrange our schedules – we plan based on what the oilfield dictates HIS schedule will be.
