Day 49- Relaxing day in the City

Today was one of the most relaxing days, the day started out good, and then just kind of relaxed and settled down, which was nice after a busy week. I learned a lot about the city and different things that can be done and can't be done and it is definitely a good thing to know. I did some exploring this morning, and then just took it easy.

I woke up and headed to Intensati with Clarissa and Amelia because I figure it would be my last time I would be able to so I figured why not give it another shot. That started out the morning great and then I just hung out with them for a bit, we went and got a bit of brunch and headed back to the dorm, stopped by a street fair on the way that was near our dorm, and enjoyed that for a bit. Once we got done with that, we headed back to the dorm and I just relaxed for the majority of the day. I did a little bit of filming for the Dreamer Showcase that is tomorrow, and we did a segment for that. So that was definitely a lot of fun. But I didn't do too much, except take some naps and just getting ready for a busy day tomorrow and a busy last week in the city. Wow saying that is tough, to think that tomorrow will start the last week I have here in NYC, I hate saying it, but I am going to miss this place once I leave. But everyone keeps telling me, don't worry about when you leave, just figure out how you are going to get back. And that is going to be one of my biggest tasks this year, saving money, building my demo reel, and getting back to NYC next year! I love this place and I can't wait to hopefully spend more than just a summer in it someday. Here is my interview for TV Guide.... Jon Taffer Interview

People always ask me since I want to become a TV personality what is something that I want to do, or a certain event I would like to go to? I thought about it and there are a bunch of events that I would love to go to as a guest and actually walk the Red Carpet for: The ESPY's and the Oscars are probably the two biggest ones. Then I kept thinking to myself, how am I going to get there, and it is just amazing everything that popped into my head that moment, I honestly feel like in 5 years I will be the one that is walking the Red Carpet at the ESPY awards or at a huge award ceremony because in 5 years I am going to be a name people are going to know. This week was a big one for me, starting off with the Dreamer Talk Box last Sunday and then doing my first on camera interview for TV Guide this week as well. These are the steps I am taking to pursue my dreams and I honestly can't wait to see where it is going to lead me.

I have dreams, goals and passions; almost everyone does that is alive, they want to do something with their life. I think one of the things that separates me from others is the willingness to do whatever it takes. I take a little pride when I say I am good at what I do, God has really given me a gift and I love to show the world what he has given me. People also ask me, if you could meet or be like any TV talk show host or personality who would you choose. I tell them I want to be like Oprah, she has done so much and inspired so many people who have dreams and goals that want to get noticed. I want to be that person that makes a difference in peoples lives. I want to show the world that their are dreamers going after their dreams every single day, and that it doesn't take long to concur them. I can't wait to see what is going to happen this last week, and especially the rest of my life! I love it in NYC, and in 1 week, things are going to happen!!!

Dream ON!!!!
