Day 54- Times ticking... Parents are here...

Today was a tough day knowing that tomorrow would be my last day at work and the last day I was really going to get to see everyone before I head back home. I have learned so much over this summer and made so many great friends, it is definitely going to be so tough tomorrow night to say goodbye. But looking back at the summer, I have had so many great days that I wouldn't take back for anything, and my main goal is to make these last couple days the best days of the summer.

I woke up and headed to work, knowing that I only had a few things left to do for the entire week. I started finishing up the interviews and getting B-roll put in for the interviews, so they could be put on the web by this weekend. I ended up finishing them early and they got put on live tonight, so I am not sure what I am going to be doing tomorrow, but its the last day of work so anything goes. Not really, but I can't wait to go into work and just honestly think back on what this summer has meant to me and the great connections I have made and the people I will stay in contact with forever. I wouldn't have wanted this summer to go any other way than it did, and for that I am so grateful that I was put at TV Guide with the staff I worked with. It was one of the most rewarding opportunities and 8 weeks of my life.

About two o'clock, my parents got in to Port Authority so I went and met them and took them back to where I work to show them my office and studio. After work I took them back to the dorm and we packed and started cleaning up a little bit and just started getting me moved out. I still couldn't believe that this was actually happening. We then headed to a really great pizza/pasta place on University and then walked around to Madison Square Park and all around the area. After we got done there we headed back to just relax and pack up some bags. I said goodbye to them for the time being and they headed back to Newark.

It doesn't sound like much happened but it was so great to see my parents again after 2 months here in the city. The fact that I will be going home this weekend has started to set in and it definitely isn't that good of a feeling but I know that I will be back. Saying goodbye to friends that I have made and will keep in contact with will be tough, but it has to be done. A chapter is ending, and another one is about to start. And if you thought this chapter was good, just wait until you see what I have in store for the next one! I can't wait to see what is going to happen the rest of my life!!!! I'm living my dreams every single day!!!

Dream ON!!!!
