Day 43- One of the best days of my life... Dreamer Talk Box

I don't even know where to start with this blog, today was honestly one of sweetest days of my life from start to finish. If you would have told me that I would be doing what I did today, I would have thought it was a bunch of crap! But really living the dream was one of the most amazing feelings in my life.

The day started out perfectly, I woke up and got to see Elise McIntyre from school she was visiting a church in NYC that was really close to where I live so it was great seeing her. After that, I headed to the Bronx for my 3rd Yankees game of the summer. The Yankees were facing off against the Tampa Bay Rays in one of the best pitching match ups I have ever seen. C.C. Sabathia pitched for the Yankees and was lights out. His past few starts had been amazing and he just continued the streak today. He pitched a complete game 4 hit shutout against the Rays. I have never seen a pitcher so dominate throughout the entire game of baseball. It was definitely a great way to start off the day. After the game I headed back to the dorm and it was ready to get going, the show was about to start!

Once I got all ready and all that, I headed to the Multipurpose room where we had the Dreamer Talk Box around 5 to get everything settled and figured out. We ran through the format a few times of the show and exactly what I was going to be doing. The entire time I was just filled with nerves and butterflies inside of me not knowing how this was going to be or if anyone would show up or anything like that. Well it was 7:15 and showtime was happening, they started playing the music and I just got so pumped up about life at that moment and that what I was about to do would top anything else that happened this summer. Thinking to myself this is going to be amazing, and just opening the doors when I heard my name being announced was the best feeling in the world, running around the audience sitting down with them for fun, and then delivering one of the most memorable monologues in Dream Careers History!!!! The show went on for about 45 minutes and it went really smoothly, I gave out some prizes, talked to Nick Meletio and Kelsi Kimball, and then had the best musical guest Rico perform one of his tracks! The night ended with hugs from everyone that was there and just nothing but great things being said about it. I was so worried it wasn't going to turn out well, but in the end, it was so much better than I could have ever hoped and dreamed it to be. After the show Nick and I headed out for some dinner to cap off an unbelievable night!

The footage from tonight will be available in a few weeks or so, but once I have it, I will do my best to post it and get it so everyone can see it! Tonight was unbelievable and I don't think anyone could have scripted this day any better. Yankees game and then the talk show, I am so fortunate to have friends and family who encourage me through everything I do. No matter what may seem impossible, know that as long as you have people who love you and are supporting you around the equation you can't go wrong. A big shout out to James, Cody, Heather, Krista and Elina who helped make this dream a reality. And thank you to all of you who came out tonight and supported one of my biggest dreams! This is only the beginning, more things are happening!!!

Dream ON!!!!
