I will never forget these experiences and the people that I’m getting the opportunity to meet while on 5YJ. You can’t put a price on any of this. It’s priceless.
I leave my current host, David and head to my next host. I’m thankful for my time with him, his roommate, and his friends and honored that I got to have this experience.
People are letting me come into their homes and invade their lives for a few days and sometimes up to a week and then to share that experience online and through social networks. If you had told me that this was possible a year ago I would have walked away shaking my head in disbelief. It’s happening. For almost 4 months it’s been happening and there are still moments that I find myself in disbelief, but so damn thankful.
Thanks to David and everyone else involved in making this a great stay for me in Bridgeport, Chicago AND to David and his roommate each for sitting down in front of a video camera for 30 mins of complete randomness and doing the first 5YJ video conversations for YouTube. You guys rock, but you knew that without me having to say it. Thank you. I won’t ever forget this (cause it’s in photos and on video now, duh. Haha) Lots of love!
