    Yep. 24/7. No weekends. No new year (I was working for this new years eve,btw)... I never know when I'll have a day off (only if I ask for it, I get a day off for my gigs). At first I had two or three days a week, but now I get maybe one... Yeah, tough it is... And all that for 200 and something € a month.
    ouch :/ that isn't fun

    That's tough. I hope all this work is putting you closer to where you want to be in life and not just to maintain you.

    People laugh at Americans and all the wealth that is here...working class people will tell you that they work as hard as many people across the globe, pulling in the long hours just to maintain. I respect you and Ed for the type of work you both do with all the hours you pull. My schedule isn't easy either, but much of that if filled with traveling and if I had a less arduous commute, things would be much easier to manage.

    Well... If you want to lead a normal life in this country you'll need at least the double of my pay. This is just to cover a bit more than just the basic stuff. You know. When I pay the bills, leave some cash aside for food and what I need around the house, I afford to go out with my gf and get a couple of beers once or twice a month. Luckily I have a house so I do not pay the rent,I do not smoke and don't have a car (I'm riding my bicycle almost everywhere) so that leaves me some cash to collect for some piece of equipment I need for my music projects (I'm mostly buying Behringer stuff cause they're cheap as ****! :D ).
    So yeah... That's my life in short. But I can't really complain because a lot of people in this country are earning less than I am.

    I got used to. The good side of this job is that I can bring my laptop to work and after 2am when there is less customers I can watch movies or shows, or even work on my projects! I'm currently watchin Supernatural (I'm on S4E7) and I've started work on a new track today. :D

    Where do you want to go? Keep in mind it's a large country.

    Morning folks. Off to work today with the iron lady, AKA the medical director. She's a short Italian lady with a short temper, especially when she gets overwhelmed with a high volume of patients.

    Personally, I'm not in the mood for those type of shenanigans today, especially since I'm guessing it'll also be the physician assistant who likes to put out the least amount of effort on seeing patients on clinic as well.

    Well, we all have to do what we have to do to get to where we need to be. Some attack things the right way and work hard, some scheme and get there but pay a high price.

    So it is as I thought...the slow PA and the medical director in clinic. I need some white rum already and it is merely 10 am in NYC.

    Well for the first time today the 920 I've used for so long has experienced some severe battery drain... Went from 100-50% in about 2 hours then from 46% to 20% in 20 mins. This on top of my phone not having a working usb socket is making me think about gettin a 930 then settling it when the next flagship comes along. Not sure.
