2 years of college

bustboy jobs, and a factory

I mean restaurant work is the obvious choice. Are there any restaurants/bars around you that are hiring? It's always worth a shot to ask.

As for factory, not sure where you live or what the factory situation is there, but you can also look online for that.

Unfortunately, there aren't many jobs where you don't have to be around people all day. Especially with your experience. You could do some lessons for music, tutoring, etc where you're dealing with less people - however you probably won't make much.

How about we think outside the box? What about you do something in a factory where you have minimal contact with people? Say stock boy? Delivery driver?

I need to vent.

There was a song where they played a harp, and someone commented, "this is what fueled me to become a harpsichordist"

I tell him, "Thats a harp, not a harpsichord though. Theyre two different instruments"

..time to go outside, find someone and have a conversation about squirrels. Squirrels are cute, have tiny brains that weigh about 6 grams and so can't comprehend the dB scale.

You should do it then. They're in high demand! My cousin decided to do it when he couldn't find work out of college and has been doing it ever since. He makes pretty good money.

Hey guys, is there any reason why XP points are given only by reviewing games/movies, and not audio/art?

How much did the feature bar help you?

I know that some very talented people who had like 50% less fans than me now have higher numbers now. Which they totaly deserve ofc. Many of you have a riddiculously small number of followers despite being so awesome. <3

I wish it would happen to me as well, but hey, I wouldn't deserve it anyway :p it doesn't happen a lot anymore though. I believe the last featured musician was @dem0lecule.

So was it only a temporary type of thing? Giving the audio portal some exposure? I do believe submitting frequent content and of high quality or rating does help in being chosen, but what do I know? You'd have to PM Tom.

I am afraid of moving forward. Every time I try to push my self forward, I back down to the shadow ridden safety that I have been hiding in for the past 5 years. Anyone else like that and/or how did you get out?

What do you mean by moving forward, exactly?
You should try a completely different style, for a change. My last track is completely different from what I normally do and it made me win a contest. It really motivated me to get out of my comfort zone more times in the future. :)

Sticking to FL11.1 until they update 12 and hopefully fix these rampant issues. Or I really am going to just say 'fuck it' and switch to another DAW.

I'm still on FL11. Never felt the need to go past it. It works, why try to fix something that ain't broke?
