Yup, me too. Now in my smash fourth month, I have found a few tips that may be helpful. No, not how to get a job because, obviously, I don’t have any answers for that. This is how you keep sane.

Think of an organization’s culture as a virtual game of the work environment. It’s always playing in the background in a continuous loop (whether you’re actively listening to it or not, whether you’re unconsciously mouthing the words or not, whether you’re stirred to action). It sends subliminal and direct messages to all those within hearing range (remember that hearing and listening are not the same). That’s why the culture you choose and nurture is so important to the ultimate success of your business.

There are some cases where completely deconstructing the original version of a cover, and barely replacing it at all can be cool, but I think when starting to work out your cover songs, it’ll be to your benefit to find some piece of the original to hold on to, as a reference point for your listeners.

The final track, “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy” from “Ren and Stimpy,” performed by Wax, was a great choice. The song embodies the emotions one gets from listening to this disc. It should be noted that several of these theme songs did not come from a cartoon, but from puppet shows. This is only gripe with the disc. Puppet shows are great, but they are not cartoons, and should ‘not be on a compilation that calls itself cartoons’ greatest hits.

6) Read the paper a few times a week. Not online, the paper. It costs 50 to 75 cents. When reading the paper, start by throwing away the Business section. Start with the sections that have nothing to do with your career. So if you are politician, start with sports. If you are actor/model/whatever go with op-ed. If you are a Realtor start with entertainment, trry the crossword. First of all, it enlightens you to what is happening outside of your world. In interviews you can drop tidbits like “I was reading the Times the other day and it said…” It sounds impressive. Also, the Library has a ton of magazines that are free to read. Trust me, even “Cosmo” will put some enrichment into your day. Start with a magazine which is completely foreign to you.

I come from a musical family. Arguably it has a lot to do with my Irish heritage but every time more than three members of my family were in the same room, someone would start singing. All national holidays and celebrations usually involved someone hauling out a guitar or accordion and any number of ‘family favorites’. Although I never learned to rock out on a hand organ, I carried a great respect for music into my adult life.

‘Famous Last Words’ begins with the tension of a ticking bomb. Building up to a face melting guitar riff before finally kicking into a driving chorus. The refrain “I am not afraid to keep on living” is enough to inspire the most broken of souls.

A lot of child stars aren’t successful as adults and see the stardom life start to fade away. Miley has proven to remain a star from childhood into her teenage years, and looks to have a promising career as an adult. Her spunk, creativity, beauty, and intelligence make her the successful star that she is.
