Day 3

So today is my third day in the city and I think I have found a place I could stay for the rest of my life. Like honestly I think I am a city boy at heart, I may live in the country in lynchburg, but I feel like I fit in so well here. And yes today was my first day at the new job!!! I started my internship at TV Guide this morning! And I already know this summer is going to be the best one of my life.

I arrive at work and meet my manager, Mickey O'Connor, who I sit down with and discuss about this summer and what I am trying to get out of the internship, once we talked for a little while we went to the morning meeting, where everyone in the place came together and talked about what was going to happen today and this week. Once we did all that, Mickey introduced me to Robyn Ross who is the Associate Editor for TV Guide, and she kind of walked me through what she was going to be doing which is probably the coolest thing ever. They had a couple interviews set up for today and tomorrow. The first interview we did was with Haley Reinhart who was the 2nd runner up in this years American Idol competition. Yes, I said AMERICAN IDOL!!!! It was so awesome to meet someone who had been to the final three. But it didn't stop there, The next person we were interviewing was Lauren Alaina the singer who got 1st runner up! Both of them were really sweet and nice, Robyn interviewed both of them and it was so much fun to watch and see what kind of things she asked. For almost the entire day I did a lot of observing, which was good especially on my first day, I got to see what type of things I will be doing this summer, because it sounds like I am going to be doing a lot of production and studio work which is a perfect place to get my foot in the door, especially at a huge company like TV Guide.

Once work got finished, I headed back to the dorm and just relaxed and got changed into some comfortable casual clothes. After that I went to eat and to an Ice Cream Social at the dining hall with some people from the program which was really nice, and then went to a little ice breaker they were putting on. It was a lot of fun.

Tomorrow is going to be another exciting day at work, we have another HUGE interview set up, and you are not going to want to miss who it is. I hope everyone is enjoying this!!! Let everyone know about this, and let me know what you think. Also send me your address so I can mail you a postcard!!!
