Day 53- Two days left...

Over the next couple days, things are going to be tough, saying goodbye to friends and co-workers that I have known over these 8 weeks that I have been here in New York City is going to be one of the hardest things to do. Everything happens for a reason, and I know that I was brought to NYC and met these amazing people and for that I am so grateful. No matter what happens in life, I have a huge support system all around to encourage me and really let me know and show my dreams off!

Today was one of those slow days at work, where I have two projects that I have to get done by the end of the week, so I don't want to get them done now and have nothing to do for the rest of the time. I have been trying to spread them out as long as possible, but it looks like I am going to finish them both up tomorrow and just enjoy my last day of work to the fullest. I have learned so much this summer through my co-workers at TV Guide and one of the biggest things is the community that they have with each other. I work in a studio that is down the hall a little bit from where everyone else is, but I don't feel weird going and asking questions and the workers that I have worked with have been so helpful to me all summer. I was thrown into a tough situation at TV Guide at the beginning of the summer, but talking with my different co-workers they have had nothing but positive things to say. I have had so much responsibility over the past 8 weeks, producing my own videos for the website, going and shooting a Red Carpet Premiere, those things don't just come to just anyone unless they think I am doing my job well. I have noticed that since the 3rd week of the internship where if the freelancer couldn't be there they didn't worry, because they knew I could handle the studio. Because of their trust in me I have become so strong and have learned so much about the professional world.

After work I headed back to the dorm and got some dinner, and then headed to the Multipurpose room to learn a little bit about stocks. Lorenzo Perez one of the other participants had this dream during the first weeks of the program to hold a seminar about stocks and just the basics of how to buy, sell and trade them. It was so much information but I could really tell that he was enjoying himself and that he was living one of his biggest dreams. I loved seeing his vision and dream come together tonight and it made me think of my dream being accomplished a couple weeks ago and just the sensation and the feeling I had, you could really tell he had the exact same thing. It also affirmed the fact that Dream Careers is such an amazing organization and that they will do whatever it takes to help dreamers truly reach their dreams.

Today is a tough day to think about, because I really only have a couple days left with people I have gotten to know and grown with over the past 8 weeks. At the exact same time, I know that when I do leave tears will be shed and people will be missed, but I know that I am going to do whatever it takes to try and get back to NYC after I graduate next May. I love this city, I don't know if it took the big city atmosphere to really make me love what my dreams were, or if it was the support system that helped me every step of the way! I am going to miss this place, but until that time comes, its time to finish this chapter strong!!!

Dream ON!!!!
