Train Travel is nice
Right now I'm on a train from Montreal to Toronto and I like trains. As part of the Craft Your Success tour the guys booked me a flight from Ottawa to Toronto on Saturday but I'm skipping it b/c I'm sick of flying. Our last flight from Halifax to Montreal got canceled and we ended up going from Halifax -> Toronto -> Ottawa -> Montreal and a lot of our luggage didn't make it. What a nightmare. Buses are actually the best because it's private and there is a bed and refrigerator but trains are the second best. They just served a nice meal and some really good wine and my Verizon card still works here in Canada so I'm online the whole time! Very cool! I am happy.
I had to have a short conversation with the gentleman behind me and ask him to mute his computer because it kept going "ding ding ding" like he was IMing or something. He's an older business guy and didn't really know how to mute his computer but we got it figured out and the rest of the trip has been good. I hate any type of confrontation but recently God's been putting some very difficult situations in my life and I used to let a lot of things slide and then just be upset inside but I'm getting better at fixing things right away even when it's painful. In the long term I think it's better for everyone that way but boy it's hard to stick to your guns and make others stick to their word.
I have a few days off and it's been good to relax while also getting some work done. I just finished an article for Professional Photographer magazine about how to go about booking your first job and using your network to build your business and we also just built a new Style Group for Showit Sites! It's awesome and I'll post it up in a little bit.
