Day 31- Dreams are coming true...

Throughout the day I did a lot of thinking, thinking about my dreams and my goals and how I was going to reach those within my lifetime. There are somethings that happen right away and others that don't happen for a while. One of my goals/dreams came true today, and this is sort of how the day went...

I woke up this morning asking myself what I was going to do throughout the day, I didn't have work so I had some time this morning to go out and explore the city for a little while. I headed down to Wall St. and walked around there for a couple hours and just took everything in. As I have been saying, I love going to places and just walking around because here in New York City you never know what you are going to see, or who you may run in to. I headed down there, and really tried to soak it all in, just the Wall St. experience and that this is where a lot of the money and the financial business of the United is done. I walked by the Stock Exchange Building and The Trump Building and it was cool walking around and just seeing what went on down there during the morning. After I got finished walking around I headed back to the dorm took a shower and then things really started to get good.

As I told you before I was given the opportunity to be apart of the audience for the David Letterman Show, with special guest Tom Hanks. After I got ready a group of about 10 dreamers headed to the Ed Sullivan Theater to pick up our tickets and just get ready for one of the best experiences of our lives (well mine anyway). After we got our tickets we had a little time to kill so we just walked around for a little bit, and then got back in line for the show. Once we got in line we waited for a little while longer and they gave us the guidelines of what we could do and couldn't do inside the theater. After we got done with that whole talk they let us in and we entered the famous Ed Sullivan Theater. When I first walked in I said to myself, "This is amazing!" It was a very surreal experience to actually be on the set of a talk show and getting to actually watch it being filmed. From the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out I just had so many ideas and was getting so excited for The Dreamer Talk Box that I am hosting in less than 2 weeks. Just watching Dave interact with the crowd and seeing Tom Hanks and Paul Shaffer just interact with each other, it really got me excited for what my big dream is, and that is to be a TV personality. I never would have thought I would get the opportunity to sit in on a real legitimate talk show this summer, and it really happened.

After we left the show we headed back to the dorm, and all that was going through my head was I want to do this Talk Show of mine right now! I was so pumped and that energy definitely carried and got more and more throughout the night. We had a seminar tonight that included former dreamers that have gotten jobs and are on the right track. It was one of the best seminars/ evening sessions we have had in my opinion! They took questions and and just shared their journey through there entire internship process and meeting people and what it took for them to get where they are at. It was one of the sweetest experiences that I have been apart of and just learning from them and the example they have set for me, that they were in my shoes once, which was awesome to hear!

Everyone has dreams and goals and things they want to do throughout their lifetime. But a lot of us don't really take hold of those dreams and really put those into action. We have been focusing so much this summer on writing down your goals and dreams and just keeping yourself accountable. I challenged everyone a few days ago to really write those dreams and goals down to really make those dreams come true. There isn't a better feeling than going out and accomplishing one of those goals you had, and you can check it off the list! I am so pumped about the rest of this summer and just to see what plans God is going to have for me, for my Big Picture in the end. He has put people that love and care about me and about my dreams this summer and he is going to continue to show me what he wants for me!

Dream ON!!!!
