    I also work for DJTT where i get paid to answer all your general knowledge emails, product questions, answer youtube questions, do the occasional blog post and take care of the technical side of the forums - i putting far more hours into DJTT than i actually end up getting paid for and the hours i do get paid for are not really payed that well - that said i still love the job or i wouldn't be doing it

    So in the end i wind up working a serious amount of hours in a week.

    In my own time that i do get thats when develop stuff like the smartmixer, ms pinky plugin, other max patches, do a bit of djing and production work.

    Needless to say i am a pretty damn busy guy, but don't really have a lot of $$$ to show for my work at the end of it all.
    big props to you though you do a great job helping us noobs out

    I work as an assistant to a very powerful attorney in one of the largest law firms in the world. Remember that credit market crash two years ago? Yeah, lots of our clients caused it.

    Not thrilling times, mindless work, but pays pretty well for my age group and next week I'm sitting down with the manager of HR to see if I can get myself into a training/learning position to help teach these spoiled brats how to use their tools better so they can make more money.

    And at night I sit around with my friends and bitch about how I don't get DJ gigs.

    airport security. i like it, get to meet all sorts of random people and chit chat and the schedule is easy - 5 days a week 2pm to 7pm. gives me PLENTY of time to practice or sketch or whatever, i can be in by 5 in the morning fall down drunk and still have time for a decent sleep. its not bad. my biggest dread when i started working there was that being a government job i would be working with alot of wanna be cops, right wing fanatics, and whatnot but actually its pretty diverse. i was pretty shocked by the amount of artists and musicians i met who work there, but i guess it makes sense - where else would one be able to work part time, still pull in a living wage, and get full medical benefits?
    i was always a shit student so this beats college any day of the week

    Of recent im getting more into using my rig. Most days this trip I will usually have my rig set up in engine control room and play for a few hours, then again in my cabin after my watch.. Its good as there is no distractions here. Only thing is obviously being away from home for 5 weeks at a time... miss my son terribly.... but I more than make up for it when i return to Bali for 5 weeks of literally whatever I can think to do.

    For everyday I work i get 1.151 days leave, so i actually work less than half the year and get payed for the full

    ...... im going home in two days, so these are the moments the job seems worth it. Somedays you h=just want to say fuck it, but working a 9-5 is my idea of hell.

    Get to travell the world, I have done literally 2 laps in the last 4 months.....Dubai, malta, bahamas, canada, Honk kong, Japan, indonesia. Usa

    To whoever it was that said they were in the navy, they should consider doing what I do, I got plenty of friends here who worked in various navys and they pay here is 3 times as good with 3 times as much time off.
    The only reason I won't do the sea life anymore is cause I have a little 8 month old DJ that needs training at home and can't justify being away from home like I have been for the last 8 years. Traveling the world is fun, but not in a haze grey ship :-) would rather see it from the DJ booth.

    Ah... aiming to be as useless as I am? What kind of lit are you studying? (I got a degree in English with a center in Medieval Renaissance studies)
