Day 19

Today, was another fantastic day! These past couple days and this week has just been amazing to see what other people in this program really want, and to know that I am not alone in this whole dreamer setting. It is a huge blessing that I have met so many great people that I can take this journey with, and it makes being here so much better!

Today like I said before was amazing, I woke up like I normally do and headed to work, I hopped on the subway just to realize that I had forgotten my access card for work, luckily I had time to hop on another subway back downtown and grab it, and I was still on time for work. I arrived at work, and got the studio all set up for the interview we had today. We interviewed Gabriel Busso (The Big C) who has a role in the Showtime series, The Big C, he is also in the new movie Super 8, so it was sweet getting to meet him and he was a pretty sweet person to talk to for a little bit. After we got done interviewing him, Bryce and I edited around 4 or 5 pieces for the website. I got to edit 2 of the pieces that will be going on the website soon this summer, so it was the first time I had gotten to really show what I had learned since being there, and also what I could do as an intern with Final Cut. I edited two of the pieces and they turned out really well. I actually edited one yesterday also, I was so pumped that I am getting these opportunities more and more to show everyone what I can do.

After work was finished I headed back to the dorm and then headed to dinner. Dinner was really good I had some bbq sandwiches and a cookie... The food here isn't too bad actually, there are some days that are better than others, but I feel like that is true where ever you are. Once dinner was over I headed to a seminar with Tim Duffy and it was amazing, we were told to find a partner and all that and did some activities about just how you are going to change in the form of how can you be a leader in your scho0l, or in your internship. It got me thinking and I talked to my partner Kelsi about it and it was sweet just telling someone else the goals that I have and what I was going to do to make my dreams come true. We both definitely learned something from each other tonight and I feel like Tim's talk was amazing telling us what steps it took to become a leader and what it actually meant to be a leader.

It is crazy to think how this is already day 19 here in NYC. So much has happened to me already, I have 5 more weeks here and I don't want to leave. I meet people everyday that have the same story and the same desire I have about reaching my goals and my dreams. It is so encouraging to know that I am not alone in this journey, I can't wait to see what happens in my life as well as the lives of my friends and fellow dreamers! We came to NYC to step out of our comfort zone and seize every moment of every day, and that is what I am doing. I challenge whoever is reading this Blog to don't just settle with what you think is okay, seize every moment every opportunity that you have, because you never know where it is going to lead in the end.
