NOLA to Memphis #dailyblogger @ www.anthonygalli.com

12:15pm: Woke Up & Showered, India House Hostel

FML. I lost track of time. I threw my stuff in my suitcase, hugged my friends goodbye, and ran out the door!

1:30pm: Uber to Amtrak Station

I told the driver to step on it! Then I couldn't find my phone so I asked him to pull over. Thank god it was in the trunk, but the battery was at 4%, which would be a serious problem if it died because my boarding pass was on it. I told him to step on it, again! But he told me not to worry Amtrak usually runs late.

I ran into the station. Receptionist told me to run faster because the train was leaving. The train conductor said, "Man, you're cutting it close!" I showed him the pass right before my phone died. I jumped on the train as it pulled out.

Am I like James Bond or something? No my name is Galli, Anthony Galli.

1:45pm - 11pm: Amtrak from New Orleans to Memphis

I moved to the dining car. Got access to wifi, but it was terrible. I had an egg sandwich and coffee. An older gentleman sat across from me as I was about to write. He had missed the train so he had paid $106 for a taxi to take him to the next station. That's what you do when you lack ninja-like capabilities.

I then attempted to do work and listen to his advice, which was:

I didn't code today, but I did a lot of brainstorming the old fashion way - pen & paper. I thought about how I can improve the tracking of my day. I'll slowly integrate these things in future posts:

While brainstorming an older woman fell into my lap, "Well, hello there!" I said it's okay this happens to me all the time.

11pm: Uber to Pilgrim Hostel House

Amtrack arrived an hour late. The hostel stopped "Check In" 5 minutes ago. I called the hostel to beg for mercy, but no one answered the phone.

11:30pm: Checked In

I walked up to the door and shoved my face into the glass. Someone let me in and prefaced by saying, "I probably shouldn't do this."

I then recognized an asian guy who had also come from the India House Hostel. He wore traditional asian robe and likes T.V. dinners. I wasn't sure if I should bow.

As I waited around trying not to look sketchy, a staffer walked in wearing PJs. She checked me in and gave me a tour despite being off the clock. I was exhausted so I went right to bed.

1:30am: Sleep
