Know what, I try to move as if this recession doesn't exist.Mr. Q put me on this book called 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho. It's about having a positive mentality & trying to achieve things out of SHEER willpower.I recommend it. I just got a job with Orange actually man, I'm pleased.

@ Streets...I'd say now, more than ever, it really IS about the hook-up in regards to media jobs...

This makes me feel stupid for wanting to leave my job.----------Chimney sweeps in Central London look for drivers 18+ with a drivers license to go with them on a job, help them unload and then drive to the nearest 'free parking' area and wait for an hour until he needs picking up again. This is to save them paying ridiculous prices for parking (if they even get a space). Seems mad but around £6 hour, cant be too bad.Yellow pages ftw.

Anything to do with media, you've got to prove your worth without backing i.e. create your own content or something, that's the way I look at it...
