My first day at ConocoPhillips


Wow, my first day was wonderful. There are so many career opportunities and educational advantages. I've already met a variety of people and learned about various operations. For those of you who are not familiar with the company, they are obsessed with safety. Before each meeting they went over the fire escape. One of the girls thought that fires were a common occurrence, and never heard such a thing, but I guess in the energy field there needs to be a special consideration for safety.

I can see us move to Houston, if only there were a design school . . .

Mexican Fiesta





video

So, we were driving down a nearly deserted road in the middle of Mexico with some friends from work and we see a stranded van on the side of the road.

It was a traveling band!!

They ran our of gas and we just happened to have an extra gallon for our quads. While we were waiting, I cajoled my new friend Juan to serenade me. This is just clip.

Well, we were having such a good old time everyone else decided to get their instruments out and dance in the middle of the road.

Yeah, the bass only had one string and I had no idea how to play the accordion.

Only in Mexico.
