Day 1

So, this is going to be a blog about what is going on in the life of Robbie Vogler this summer... I am going to try my hardest to keep it up to date everyday so everyone knows what is going on!

So... Day 1.. So I woke up this morning and my dad and I spent the morning and last night figuring out what we were going to do, we end up driving to Penn Station in NJ (right outside the city) and hop on a bus that took us to Port Authority. Once we arrived at Port Authority we got in probably the most interactive cab I have ever been in. We drove to where I am right now University Hall on the campus of NYU! It was definitely a great way to start off the morning and was so much fun. After I got checked into my room I went and got settled in to my room. After we did all that, my dad and I explored the city, well Union Square anyway, we found a Kmart that is right down the street and a bunch of different stores, and walking around I just kept thinking to myself, what an amazing summer this is going to be.

After we got all the necessities my dad and I took a subway to Time Square, and let me tell you, this place was kicking! We had lunch at one of the most amazing burger places I have ever been, "The Counter" you got a menu and you picked every bit of your burger, you were in charge. So it definitely was a place I may be revisiting later this summer. After that I dropped my dad off at the subway, and was for the first time in my life, out in the middle of New York City by myself! But of course it gets better.

Once I said goodbye, I took off and explored Time Square, the first thing I notice is the travel channel is having a sand masters exhibition right in the middle there was a HUGE sand sculpture and it was pretty sweet. I continue walking passing places like the Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood, a Toys R Us store with a Ferris wheel inside, Broadway where they are currently showing Mary Poppins, and a bunch of other places. I get down to the street where the building I will be working in is, and I find it, it may be the biggest building I have ever stepped foot in, It is the same building where Fox News Channel is located and so it was fun to see where I was going to be working. Once I got done seeing that I headed back to NYU, took the R subway downtown and got off and Union Square.

After I got all situated the Dream Careers program hosted a welcome orientation dinner for all the participants, where they just introduced all the staff, and gave everyone an opportunity to meet one another and socialize with everyone. That was definitely a blast getting to see where everyone is interning and seeing where everyone was from. Once that was done I came back to the room and wrote this.

This is going to be an amazing summer and it already has started out perfectly! I start my internship at TV Guide on Tuesday and I'm going to experience what I hope will be the best summer of my life! I can't wait to share it with everyone, leave comments if you want to know something more!
