    I'd kill to have your job though, that's pretty kickass.

    How long does it take you to write your show? Or think about things to talk about?

    i don't get paid for my radio show, i do it just for the hell of it on campus.

    and you wouldn't want my job, 7.40/hr sucks


    as far as how i do my show, i just put together a couple of songs (like an hours worth) and then play 1 1/2 hrs. of Rotational music (aka new music) and then me and my 2 co-hosts/friends just talk about whatever

    i'm probably going to give my thoughts on the Affliction & WEC cards as well as hype up UFC 94

    although from what i know you can get paid $20/hr as a Radio DJ and all you really need is a HS Diploma

    It's a hard industry to get into though. There is a lot of politics that goes into it also.

    As long as you're having fun and get to just shoot shit on the air that's awesome. I am envious of that.

    yeah, i'm looking at getting an intership somewhere, i have a couple of connections in some record labels but i'm not sure i want to go into that sort of stuff or into my real bread & butter, video production. I contacted Strikeforce about an internship but i have to go out to San Jose for it and i don't have much money. lol.

    You should do what you want to do. If you're still young, you still got time to fail a few times, look at Timmy. (I'm joking, Tim has had some hard times though and honest about it.) I say go for it if you got nothing holding you down like a dependent family or wife.


    Oh and random gif

    yeah i'm only 20 (21 november :bowdown:)

    and i got a serious girl who said if i moved to California she'd move out there with me.

    i'm really looking for any sort of Production job (video stuff, but hopefully office type work) for an MMA org. i shot emails to people at UFC, Strikeforce, & HDNet though i don't know if HDNet is doing anymore MMA Events like they used to since its been almost 2 years or so since their last event.

    That's awesome dude, you should follow your dreams if you can. I had a buddy who was sick at making websites, and doing art on photoshop. Well in his last year of highschool he came 2nd in Canada for a comp on designing a website and lost to a girl who followed the rules to a t, whereas he added his own designs to make it more unique. He ended up playing EQ like 24/7 and working for his dad's company instead of following his dreams.

    I dunno what he's doing now, but that decision was really disappointing. I had high hopes for him. Keep contacting them, It's always good to network, you never know who they may know. Just keep doing your thing and I'm sure it'll all work out.
