Week 39 Of My Journey Getting To New York.

I've got 3 weeks to go. I can't believe how the time has flown by. I find my self wishing it would slow down as I've still got so much to do. I still need to acquire a large suit case as I refuse to pay £32 each way for extra luggage. I need to book my travel insurance and try to raise at least £700 for spending money hmmm.
I will complete my show reel tomorrow. I just need to try and find a music bed to put underneath and smooth out the finishes. I'll continue to cold call producers and radio stations. The more I do it the easier it has become. I no longer feel the nerves when hearing the over seas dial tone wondering what I'm going to say. If they say no, it's onto the next one. I always said that I wanted to be pushed out of my comfort zone (be careful what you ask for) and it seems this trip is going to do just that. I'm going to have to try and set up some meetings whilst out there and drop off my CV to as many media outlets possible. The thought alone daunts me but it has to be done. I don't have much choice as I still haven't found any concrete work. It will be good experience for me to be honest. I'm also going to try and get on to some chat shows the Maury Povich show, Steve Harvey show etc. It's all research for my upcoming blog and counselling degree which starts in October.

What do I want from my time away? A good experience which I know I will gain, to meet new people, to socialise more, for my confidence to grow to name a few. I know this is going to be one of the best summers of my life.
