Day 29- Lunch done with Brilliance

Today wrapped up one amazing week, I would have to say the past 9 or 10 days have been the best I have had since I have been here in NYC. Things just keep getting better and better, I am not saying that there aren't some down times but they don't last long enough to really make a difference. Starting with last Friday and just going through this entire week, meeting new people, making amazing friends, and making more and more great opportunities come alive. I love New York because nothing is the same twice. You can go through your day and do the exact same thing, and it not be the same. Go down different streets you didn't even know existed and end up somewhere amazing.

Today started out great I woke up and worked on some laundry that I love doing. Then had my quiet time which was really nice, I love getting those times to myself during the week that I can just relax and sit down and really reflect over the past week and the time that I have been here. It has truly been an amazing week, as you have seen throughout my blog posts, I have met so many great people and have gotten to meet them and really get to see what their dreams are and how they are going to pursue them. I have realized more and more that I learn something from everyone that I come in contact with, whether it is just for a little bit, or if it is someone that you go out to eat with, and have a real nice conversation with, you can learn something from everyone.

After I got done doing laundry and my time of reflection I headed up to 44th street to meet with The Ruba's!!! Liz Ruba is a really good friend of mine from school and her family came up and stopped in NYC for the day on their way up to Cape Cod. So I went and met with them and had a great lunch with them at a new place I had never tried before called TSQ, it was a small restaurant but the food was fantastic. It was great seeing them and just capped off an amazing week and also an amazing weekend. I love when I see people from school or back home, it was awesome a few weeks ago to see James and his brother and just talk to them for a little while during my lunch break. I really enjoyed the afternoon just talking to Liz and her parents about the summer, and living in the city. It was also great to hear how Liz's summer and her experience at Kids Across America was for her first time. This is a camp I worked at 2 summers ago and was a real life changing experience, so it was great to hear how she was and her adventures in good ol' Golden, MO. After I got done lunch with them and said goodbye before they went to go see Mary Poppins on Broadway, I headed back to the dorm for the rest of the afternoon. Not a lot happened after I got back, I took a nap and just relaxed watched some episodes of The Bob Newhart Show and ALF. And then shot some footage for The Dream Talk Box which I am really excited about.

Things in life that you have no control over are always put there for a reason. No matter if you think someone is out to get you or you just have the worst luck in the world, everything happens for a reason. I really believe God has put me here in NYC this summer to experience something that I have never experienced before. He has really shown me how to be the best person I can be and still keep my faith through it all. He has put amazing people in my life to share my ideas with and to share my goals and dreams for whatever I want to do in the future. I am reminded everyday that no matter what life throws at you, you have to be ready to get up to the plate and hit a home run. You may not get a second chance to do something, take the risk, if you feel like doing something, go out and do it. Only you can stop yourself from doing what you love or something that you want to get done. Remember to follow your dreams, don't wait until your time comes, make today be your time, and go out and take it!

Dream ON!!!!
