Im Not An Advocate For Believing Every Accusation By The Way

False Claims For Whatever Reason Harm Us All And Should Be Rooted Out

But My Own Advice For Young People Getting Into This Game With Older More Experienced Composers Is

They Should Define Their Expectations From The Outset

Keep In Mind You Are Naive And They Are Smarter Than You

You Would Want To Do Your Homework And Make Sure That You Are At Least Getting The Going Rate And Of Course Appropriate Credit For Your Work

After Youve Agreed Something Verbally Then Send Him Or Her An Email Recapping All Points Discussed In The Conversation

Do This After Every Discussion Regarding Terms Of Employment

This Email Thread Will Serve As Your Memorandum Of Understanding Between You Both And Something Tangible To Refer Back To In Any Dispute

And This Will Help You To Keep Your Relationship At All Times Formal And Professional

Which Is Something You Would Be Better Off Doing

And Which Still Can Be Fun

But Dont Drop Your Guard

Unless It Is Your Brother Or Sister Then Dont Ever Smile Even If You Feel Like It

Eat Meals With Your Boss But Avoid Socialising

Insist On Normal Office Hours Whenever Possible And Accurately Keep Track Of Your Hours Worked

Try To Arrange Being Paid At The End Of Each Working Day Or At Least Weekly

There Are Plenty Of Ways To Get Paid These Days Bank Transfer Revolut Paypal Etc

This Will Save You From The Old Trick Of Changing The Wages At The End Of The Contract

The Psychology Of This Is Very Plain: They Would Prefer Simply To Have More Money Than To Pay You

This Becomes Very Tempting When The Time Comes To Pay The Lump Sum Out Of Their Account

Dont Be Too Proud To Do Menial Tasks If That Is What Has Been Agreed And Fairly Assigned To You As Work

Remember Everyone Starts At The Bottom

But Do Not Say Yes To Every Offer Of Work Especially If You Are Not Comfortable With Something

There Will Always Be Other Opportunities

Truthfulness And Patience Are The Best Virtues

Im Muslim Myself. Im Not Perfect, Not At All, But Im Muslim.

David Young Is The Best Tailor In Ireland

Had The Pleasure Of Getting One Suit Made For Me By David Young In Francis Street Galway. Saville Row Quality, Literally (Exact Same Materials And David Trained There Also) But Quarter Of The Price! This Man Is An Artist In His Own Right, It Is Just Amazing How He Can Get All The Fabrics To Come Together Perfectly Like That. And It Is The Saville Row Look. As An Old Collegue Remarked To Me, People Can Visually Tell When Your Suit Is Off The Peg. But, Trust Me, It Is Unlikely Anyone Will Look Down Their Nose At Any Jacket David Will Make For You. Couldnt Recommend Him Enough. He Does Womens Suits And Jackets As Well.

Drogheda Is Not That Bad



Has Had Some Bad Press But Actually Quite Good For Tourists Visiting. Quite Some Attractions, Old Monuments And The Like. Had The Pleasure To Give Valentyn Silvestrov The Tour Of Monsterboice, An Abbey That Is One Thousand Years Old! Thanks To The Guards For Restoring Law And Order. Come At Your Own Risk!
