Moving day had finally come. I was moving into my first real house. I had scrimped and saved for ages in order to make my dreams come true. Even though I was as happy as could be, it was a very stressful time for me. The thought of living alone and having responsibilities scared the crap out of me. I have always lived with my parents and was going to be all alone for the first time. I wasn’t moving to another state or anything, but a couple towns away from my family still seemed far. I packed all of my things, said my goodbyes, and headed to my new home. I was amazed at how quiet it was. I come from a house filled with constant noise, so silence freaks me out a bit. I flipped on the television and realized that I had forgotten to order directv. I grabbed up my cell phone and called immediately. Not long after, I had some noise in my once quiet house and I didn’t feel as far away from my family.

I love living near the city and it makes business so much better. Having close proximity to a lot of our vendors and all kinds of suppliers makes it easier for me to get things done and get them done right – who would have thought I’d be here running my own business from home at this point in my life? I recently got T1 Bronx connections for my house and my office (the one that I rent) so I’d be connected and have fast internet. I hate having to worry about whether or not my internet connection is going to hold up for the day so I can talk to my clients without worry. Being professional is half the battle when you’re working from homeand it’s all I can do sometimes to get myself out of bed at a reasonable hour and make it look like I care about my clients’ issues. It’s tough being the go to guy but you know, that’s okay! I signed up for this gig and I’m going to see it through.

I recently moved to New York. I have wanted to be an actress my entire life and always felt New York was the place to make that happen. In the movies, it seems so easy. A young waitress will quickly be discovered and become the next hot star onDIRECTSTARTV. However, I am still waiting for that to happen to me. I never realized how many people audition for parts. I was thinking the lines would be ten or twenty people lone, but they are four or five hundred people long. Everyone in line is selfish and rude. Since everyone is trying for the same part, no one wants to talk or make friends. I think I made more enemies my first week in New York than I have in my entire life. This is a completely different way of life and I am not sure it is what I want. I keep hoping to get a part and make my dreams come true, but right now I am thinking they
I'm not so happy today. I've had a lot of problems lately. I don't know if I could still handle it. I feel very tired from work and I received a bad news from my family back home. I work so hard but I feel like my life is still the same. Nothing's happening! Please help me God! I hope everything will be fine soon.

My mom couldn’t be more into the Today show if she tried…I don’t know what it is she likes so much about it. To be honest, I think it’s kind of silly and I just don’t get the appeal but I do like to look at Matt Lauer, let’s be honest. Anyway, I went to http://www.direct.tv/ last year and got mom a DirecTV hookup so she’d have all these channels but every time I come to her house she’s just watching Today. Even at nighttime she’s watching the DVR version from earlier in the day! I don’t get what she likes about an open format news and entertainment show but I guess I can’t judge. I like some pretty weird stuff myself so at the end of the day it’s totally her prerogative to like whatever she likes. At least she doesn’t watch Good Morning America…I would really judge her for that one! I can’t believe that show is still on the air, to be honest with you, it’s worse than the tabloids.
