You should go for the bookstore. Probably less stress on you. Even if you work in retail/fast foot/whatever, it's still better to have a consistent work history than an inconsistent work history. Hey, For some reason the book store at my local college can't find my application that I filled out twi...

It would help your cause greatly to obtain a years' working experience again at one job. If you could, keep in touch with the people who gave you the tour. I know KraftieKortie, it's just kind of job that matters if I say took a job a Dollar General it wont look too convincing same if I were to tak...

I bet those Quad's must have been hell! Yep. Drop one of those reels on your foot and you'd be on crutches for weeks. I still chuckle remembering how many times the signal would breakup on a quad while it was on air, and from across the building I would hear the tape guy screaming at the dude on th...

Congrats on the successful tour and placement lead! I can tell your technical knowledge was noted and respected. MC can be a way cool environment. Back in my day the tape room was all film islands (35mm slides and 16mm film reels) and the VCRs were all the wall-sized 2" tape monsters. I well r...

My sister has been a graphic designer for 10 years or so and she's just now finishing her Bachelors. And I once took a journalism production class and the TV News guy who taught it said you do not need a degree to work in any kind of media. A lot of people start their jobs while still in school.

I don't believe that our neurological condition happens to intesify the anxiety we feel. I do however know without a single doubt that we get anxious much , much more often than NTs. I also believe that our attention to detail(and for me, constant situational analysis) lead to getting very anxious ...

For me black and white thinking is: Yes it will happen no it wont happen, your either depressed or your happy, your going to do something or your not, There's no maybe's, there's no shades of grey. I tend to be more literal like if you say "I'm going to call you at 11:30 Friday morning" t...
