Continuing With the Theme...Top 10 Things I Like About Living in Norman

10. The people.

9. I can afford more than a postage stamp sized lot here! My dogs can actually sprint across the yard if they want.

8. Buying local. I can get just about everything I need locally. I've even found a hometown pharmacist! No big box chain...someone who will come in on a Sunday morning for an emergency (I found this out from experience).

7. Being close to family. It's nice to be able to call mom to go shopping or dad to see if he can come help me with something. :) Mom's best friend called me to go shopping today--it's like having a 2nd mom around.

6. The University--it adds a lot to the culture of the community.

5. My job. Working with the younger kids is different, but is definitely fun and rewarding.

4. No traffic (except game days, but at least you can plan around that).

3. It takes less than 15 minutes to get to work, even though I live on the opposite of town as school.

2. I live on a quiet cul-de-sac where there isn't much traffic noise. There is undeveloped land very nearby and I can hear the locusts at night! I can also see the stars!
