Well, I survived the radio gig. It was exciting but also terrifying because I had to do the technical stuff as well as the announcing, and there was no one around to help me if anything went wrong because it was an official holiday (Presidents' Day). If I had any questions, I could call someone, but it wasn't like they could come to the studio to bail me out of any disasters.

I think this was one of the most challenging things I've ever done. Considering that I have no formal training and have worked in the biz for under two months, in a totally non-technical, off-air capacity (promotions), I think I did pretty well. Now the next challenge is to put together a decent presentation for an upcoming English as a Second/Foreign Language conference.

When I started this blog, not a lot of exciting stuff was happening, if at all, but now life is full of adventure and measurable accomplishments. Maybe I'll even end up writing for publication, under my own name (instead of ghostwriting/editing for other people). If I can maneuver radio gigs, then surely I can get something in the Publishing Industrial Complex (PIC). :)

Hey MJ: Congrats on the success of your gig:) I did a post paying homage to you, although I turned off comments cuz I wouldn't be able to moderate them, as I have troll issues. So take care and keep your head up:)

Thanks a lot! I guess the risk of posting controversial stuff is the trolls. But you can turn on comment moderation to check them out before they're posted.
