I need to be not to far from my work which would be call center supervisor or perhaps a hospital or just a secretarial position. I never got to use my degree yet so why start now? lol

Im 56 years old. thank you any help would be appreciated, oh and i like to be in an urban or just outside urban area with shopping, stores etc.
Also look around metro TX areas. Lots of good jobs in your field in the DFW area.

DFW isn't in Oklahoma City or Tulsa.

Tulsa is prettier and more upscale imo. OKC is more booming and has more jobs. Tulsa has a better quality of life imo, but OKC is an up-and-coming American metro.

Tulsa is a lot prettier, feels more like a big city, and overall has a better quality of life. Economics lean towards OKC though as it is growing quite a bit faster than Tulsa and has a more diverse economy.

LOL! And what is wrong with Gotebo!?

Outskirts of either OKC or Tulsa would do it for me. We have family on the western side of the state, so it would be outskirts of OKC.

OMG! No walmart?! I shall DIE without a walmart!!!

You know, they built a brand new wal mart in Wewoka, built on site and one year later, they closed it down. Now there is a brand new bldg. just sitting there with no beautiful people shopping there.

The ONLY reason I picked OKC is because all my family is on the western side of OK. I lived near Belle Isle and that was a nice area.

Yeh, while probably shutting down the other smaller proprietorships.

Can't stand all that Wal-Hell stands for.
