Just met with my boss about the end of my internship, which has been awesome, and not only did they offer to hire me on when Im finished with school, but they also want to pay me to do part time work while Im at school. :h:

I think Im going to start shopping for some new studio equipment now :)

I'm running at about 6 months now. Luckily the head manager wasn't here, according to the AM if he saw this I would if been fired on the spot. The thing that really pissed me off is I know the person who did it and I got the shit end sein my boss when he was still heated about it. Found my co-workers trash in the bin along with it. I guess he just didn't feel like emailing the clients so he just tossed it...

I don't have a desk job, but I do spend the bulk of my time working thinking about beats and synths and whatnot. Then I get home and sit in front of my computer and suddenly 8 hours of brainstorming vaporizes and I'm blank :lol:

Just draw / write out everything you intended to do on a post-it. That's what I usually do. Although I'm out of post-its so I currently have the very rough format of a possible melody I intend to test out drawn out across my hand and arm.

Keep a notepad, write down ideas that you want to try later. Gets me through the day.

At work, no. They'd probably object to me having it on the desk.
