Another Trip Around The Sun & What Have I Done?
So my birthday is tomorrow (9/16) and it's a fairly insignificant one. 34. Though it is six years to forty which is kind of weird to think about. I do tend to think about where I've been and where I'm going. Am I satisfied with how I've used these first 34 years?
I've lived in five states, I've had a bunch of different jobs, I've met a lot of people in my time, I really have no complain. I'm getting married in a few months, hopefully kids will be on the horizon shortly after that. But am I satisfied? Am I content?
I'm definitely a career driven person and it's actually gotten me in trouble before. Some lessons I've learned for sure. In my past I've been so concerned with getting promoted or finding something bigger and better or with more money that I've actually failed to have consistency. I spent a year in Denver doing a morning show for basically all of 2015. After that I went back to my home town of Vegas where I did an afternoon show for a couple of years, then I went to San Diego for two years to do mornings again and in January of this year, I began my job at Mix 106.
I've had a lot of years in the radio industry; 14 as of Halloween but the one thing I like is consistency. Other than the (total of 10 years) I spent doing radio in Vegas I haven't lived in a place long enough to plant roots. I'm happy, however, that here in Boise is where that changes. Even through all the Covid craziness of this year I feel incredibly blessed to be at Mix 106 and living here in Boise and I couldn't think of a better place to start my new life with my (soon to be) wife (that's fun to say!) and to finally plant some roots and build some consistency with our awesome Mix audience.
