Chasing My Dream

There is a city in the Netherlands called Venlo that's supposedly the first city to implement Cradle to Cradle (or at least trying to). I contacted their mayor to ask if they were offering any internships. This was his response:

Thank you for your e-mail request. I am not sure if we can offer you anything, however I am interested in your ambitions and would like to find out a little bit more about you and see if anything may arise from that. If that agrees with you, I suggest you make an appointment to come and see me in Venlo and we'll take it from there.

At first I responded by saying that it was inconvenient for me to travel to Venlo just for an interview, but now I'm considering it. I asked him if he would be willing to have an interview over the phone but he didn't respond after a few days so I took it as his unwillingness. So here's the email I just sent him today.

I assume that your lack of response means that you are unwilling to have a interview over the phone.
 

To be honest with you, there is nothing else I would rather do than work on C2C. And if traveling to Venlo to meet you is the only chance I have of doing so, then I will do it. Let me try to figure out how I will get there and then I'll make an appointment with you. Is that ok?

This is very important to me.


All I have to do now is to confirm an appointment with the mayor and figure out all the logistics.

It's difficult to explain what I'm feeling currently; it seems to be a mixture of nervousness, excitement and desperation. Everyone has been telling me to go meet the mayor and I think I should as well, but I'm just afraid of being denied the opportunity after putting in all the effort of going there. Nevertheless, I think I should take the chance because if I go, I would literally be chasing after my dream and I can't think of any other way I would rather live my life.
