Business travel takes on a whole new meaning when you travel for business school while still working on the road. Things like internet access become really important…and when your hotel internet craps out…well, you become a tad frustrated. All in all things are going well so far. I arrived in Houston late Monday night (leaving my sweet new airplane pillow at home…bad move) and drove across town to my hotel. After a few hours of sleep, I was up to tackle my first day of my graduate project in person.
It has made such a big difference being in person at the company, meeting people face to face, and finally getting more context around what I am working on. I have my own office for these three days…a sweet private office with a huge wall of windows and a big cherry wood desk! I feel very important 🙂 with nearly 15 meetings over the next few days, it is going to be busy!
all dressed up for grad school at the office:
Houston is humid. And flat. Man I would not want to move here. So happy that my parents avoided coming here!
Last night I had my first night of class on the road, and yep, the internet would not connect. Fail. So instead I munched on snacks from the grocery store, worked out, worked internet free, and made it to bed at a reasonable time. Fingers crossed I can connect tonight!
I seriously think that the best part of travel is how good your own bed feels when you get home!
