Hard to grasp that just a year ago I was still roughnecking. Blood sweat and tears day in and day out. Getting splashed with brine water, covered in oil. Hanging hundreds of feet in the air working on heavy machinery in awkward positions. Mixing hundred pound sacks of gel in the worst weather though all hours of the night and day. I wouldn’t change any of it. I’m glad for all that I learns from it, my rig experience and downhole knowledge is what got my foot in the door to my directional career. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am at today, and I enjoy where I am at today as an MWD engineer. Never thought engineer would be a title that would represent me. I am grateful for the position I am in now but I know that I cannot get comfortable. I still have much to learn and places to see and people to meet. Everyday is a step forward.
