Day 32- Wednesday is a good day!

Wow I can't believe I have been here for over a month, and let me tell you something, it has been one of the best months of my life. Meeting new people getting to experience new things that I never thought I would ever do in my life. Things are going really great in my life at the moment, there have been times that have been better than others, but whenever there is a moment I think things are horrible, I get lifted up by something else. I really think that is the secret to New York City, there is always something around to get you in a good mood. You are about to find out why that Wednesday June 29, 2011 was a day that is going to be remembered for a while.

I got to work this morning, and did the normal thing, got in and ate my bagel with cream cheese and looked up a video we could put in the video player for tomorrow. I chose the clip from the show Expedition Impossible on ABC it is a new show and it seems like it was a good choice. Once I finished that task I was given a little research assignment by Mickey, and that was just to see how much traffic is going to certain videos, whether it is videos we do at the office, or it is videos other companies and networks send to us. I did that for about a good little bit, getting things organized and figuring out what is the "hot" video content on our site. That was a lot of fun, once I got done that task, I didn't have much to do for the rest of the day, so I thought up of some ideas that maybe could make the site more unique, I have been working on a few ideas that other sites use, that I really believe could make tvguide.com a real success. I can't wait to tell Mickey what those ideas are and I really think they are going to be very beneficial. After that I headed back to the dorm and went to the gym to get a little bike ride in. It was definitely a great workout that was a nice way to end a good day at work and also get myself ready for the night.

We had a seminar or what Dream Careers call "Industry Nights" and tonight was music industry night. Which featured a few artist that are getting themselves established within their own music and the type of industry they want to be in. The reason my day turned out to be so great in the end, is because one of the artists that were there, his name is Rico, and he is a hip-hop artist and loves to perform. He is an underground talent, but he has great music and his lyrics are very powerful and strong. Rico has officially joined the line-up for The Dreamer Talk Box as our musical performance at the end of the show! This is one of the biggest things that I was worried about not being able to get on the show especially less than 2 weeks away from air. I talked to him about my dream and my vision for the show and he was all for it. That was definitely a big weight off my shoulders now that I have a musical performance for the show on July 10th.

Today may not sound like the most exciting day to some of you reading this, but one of the biggest purposes of Dream Careers and this summer is really pursuing my dreams and what I want to do for the rest of my life. I know its not really what I want, but what God is going to do and use me for, but I really feel like he has led me here this summer to meet people within Dream Careers that share that same passion for achieving your dreams and will help you in whatever way possible. I think God has shown me so much in the first month that I have been here, and he is going to show me more and more every single day! Finding a musical guest to perform on my talk show is just me getting one step closer to my dream and achieving it. I love that I have so many friends and family that support me every step of the way, the friends I have made here in NYC and my friends and family that I have back at home and back at school, is just amazing. I couldn't do it without anyone of them, and I am really blessed to have all of them in my life! Don't take your friends for granted, sometimes it only takes a thank you or I love you, to someone real close to really make them know that you appreciate them!

That is what I am leaving you with tonight, no matter what kind of a day you are having, don't forget the people that have helped you get to that point and have been with you every step of the way. A simple thank you can go a LONG way!

Dream ON!!!!
