Discovering Dallas...and Fort Worth

I've been in Texas for over a year now. One year, three months, and two weeks, but who's counting? I like Texas (politics and government aside). I like my life here. Work is a zoo, but outside of 8-5, I really like my life. I've discovered a dance class I love, I'm taking three more classes toward my Ed.D., and I'm making friends. I mention all of this because my long term goal is not to stay in Texas forever. I'd love to go back to North Carolina someday or back to New England. It would have to be the right job at the right time to take me there, but who knows when that will happen.

I mention all of this because I've been in Texas over a year and there are still so many things to see and do and my goal is to try them all at least once before I leave the state someday. No use planning for where I'm going to end up next if I don't know when that's going to happen. In the meantime I'll miss out on all the fun things around me. I've been to a few Rangers games, ostensibly to cheer on the Red Sox, but I like the Ballpark at Arlington. I want to go to a Mavericks game and see the Dallas Stars play. There's theatre and music - too many venues to count from as small as House of Blues to the big ones like Cowboy Stadium. And that's just in Dallas. Fort Worth has lots to do as well. I like Texas, so I don't want to have regrets when I leave some day that I didn't make the most of my time here.

When we lived in NM we made a couple trips to Arlington so I could see the Sox play ...and it seemed to happen on my /near my bday so it was my bday present/weekend getaway :) That's where I finally got Nomar, Johnny Damon, and Ricky Henderson's autographs!

Lucky you Michelle! I really like the Ballpark in Arlington and it's close to where I live. I pass it on my way to work every day.
