Day 2

Hey everyone, so today wasn't as eventful as yesterday but definitely was a great day. I got up at around 8:45ish and went out into the city before our first day of orientation. We sat through orientation for about 2 hours where they talked about the summer, and what they were hoping we get out of the summer, it was definitely a great way to start the day. After the first part of the orientation I went to this place I believe called the Whole Market with some friends. I had some curry, and some corn chowder, talk about amazing food... Once we finished that, we made our way over to Max Brenner, a chocolate shop, and got a couple chocolate drinks (non alcoholic of course) and then we went back to the orientation place and got ready for our dry runs for work tomorrow.

Once we met with the person who helped us out, we all went our separate ways and went to find our internship site. Since I am the only one working at TV Guide it was kind of tough walking through the city not knowing exactly where I was going. But I found exactly where I am going to be working and it is amazing. I will be working at 11 West 42nd Street!!!! It was so much fun to find out where the building is.

After I found my site, I made my way back to the dorm and relaxed for a little bit and then headed to Time Square, talk about a place that never sleeps. There is always something going on in Time Square, whether it is a Broadway show, or just someone asking for random money. It was a great experience. I made my way back to the dorm and it was getting pretty late, I experienced NYC for the first time at night and it was definitely interesting, there are some pretty interesting people here. Later on I went to a movie with Gaby and Kaitlynne, two of the girls I went to lunch with. So it was definitely a long day, but well worth it!

Tomorrow (today) is my first day at work, and I can't wait to tell everyone how it goes! Be sure and let me know what you think and I will be keeping everyone posted!!!
