Day 30- Monday= Back to work Brilliance

Today was the first day back to work after one of the busiest and longest weekends of the summer, I definitely did a lot this weekend as you can tell by my other posts and I wasn't sure how today was going to go work wise. It seemed like everyone in the office was lagging and was just tired from the weekend. There is nothing like a busy Monday at work though, I kept busy and that moved things along a little bit.

I got up this morning and headed to work, I got some good sleep last night and I was honestly ready for a great day. I hopped on the subway and headed to Grand Central and then hit up Tim Hortons for an Ice Carmel Latte and a bagel. It was a very good bagel this morning, so I was in a good mood, good sleep and a good bagel definitely is the best way to start off the day! Once I arrived at work, it felt like just everything from the weekend was catching up to me, I was tired and just for some reason wasn't on my A game. I got in and looked up some clips and then started working and finishing the Monte Carlo clips that is going on the site in the next few days. I did all the work for it, and Bryce just tweaked some things at the end, which was nice and finished it up for me. It was my first all the way through process of shooting the interviews and editing them and putting the whole thing together. We had one interview today with Mahcad Brooks who is starring in the new USA Network show Necessary Roughness. It seems like a pretty good show. After his interview we started to edit that and put that together and then we all headed home.

When I got back to the dorm I headed to Palladium to get some dinner and it was definitely not the right day to go, the High School group of "dreamers" showed up yesterday so they were all in the dining hall and it was just a mess. So I got something real quick and headed back to get a bagel at Dunkin Donuts so that helped me get a little good food inside of me. Then I headed back to the room and did some brainstorming for the talk show in less than 2 weeks. I have a lot of ideas but I can't really start working on the big stuff until next week when the events I will talk about are actually relevant. After that we had a meeting about the goal writing exercises a group of us are trying to get together for networking purposes after we leave here. It was a very good meeting, just getting to see where this is going to go. After the meeting, I headed out for a little walk around the Union Square area, it wasn't that long, but it was nice to listen to my "Get Pumped" playlist and think about some ideas for the show and how I can make this stand out over everything.

Today was a great day of relaxing and just enjoying a nice Monday in NYC. Not too much happened at work, but like I said enough happened to keep me busy, which is the most important thing. I don't have work tomorrow, because I will be attending the David Letterman show during the afternoon. I am really excited to see how things really work on a talk show stage and how he interacts with the people in the audience and his guests. I always try to leave you with a challenge for the next day, and today I want to leave you with this, take some time out of your busy schedule to really sit back and enjoy the surroundings. Whether you live in the most exciting city in America, or a little country town, you can always learn something from your surroundings. Remember you blaze the trails to your desires, you step over the line into new territory! Let that be the way you live your life every single day!

Dream ON!!!!
