How to start making work in your first year in the City?

There are so many things I want to do here. In this year. One year.
Recently I have been thinking about creating my own work a lot. Not the usual, "ah I will get into so and so big company and dance for a few years...then I'll make work..." why? why this order necessarily? I started dancing because I want to make work...because of the hunger for creation. I want to jump right into it: I want to make work, make more, and keep making. But I don't know how to start. How do you start as a choreographer right out of school? Self-production? Where would let you self-produce? Not the big studios I guess...
The good thing is, my internship is teaching me a lot of online marketing for the arts, which is going to be really useful if I want to sell my own work. One of the projects that I have started recently is to reconstruct this blogger website into a much more professional looking wordpress site with videos of my dance and video work, photography, and blog entries of my creative process. Stay tuned.
