Wow, it’s already Day 3. Surprise, surprise, it’s another beautiful, beautiful day in downtown Vancouver. Sun is shining and the weather is more pleasant than Ottawa’s was mid summer, seriously. I hope the weather holds as it’s been nice all week and a great friend of mine is getting married today.
Work wise I’m pushing through an idea for a fishing clothing company and keeping my eyes open for other opportunities. Part of not having a salary or a job is never having to go to work but always having to remain self motivated, always. If you don’t motivate yourself daily and make things happen for yourself, it’s only a matter of time until you’re waiting in line for a crappy coffee on your way to a job, so you can get a steady cheque for your time. If you have ever worked for yourself before you’ll know what I’m talking about.
I tried doing something similar to this ~6 years ago when I was fresh out of University and ended up just playing tennis and going out at night. Needless to say I ended up getting a job and the ventures I was working on never exploded.
Truth be told this journey has begun but won’t “really start” until mid October when I take flight overseas. Sure I’m not working and I’m on the other side of Canada which is far enough but I’m familiar with these places, I know a lot of people here and there is no culture difference. Things will really get interesting when I know almost no one, don’t speak the language and can’t read the signs! I’d be leaving for overseas sooner but I didn’t get around to vaccinations until early September and have to wait for another Hep B shot. Seriously … I’ll wait 3 weeks to NOT come back with a disease thank you.
Had a steam this morning, a word of advice is always bring a towel, drying yourself with one of those wall mounted hand dryers isn’t a good time, trust me.
All this being said, I gotta go, people are starting to come over for a pre-reception and my attention to this screen is somewhat anti-social.
