I think I was one of the first to join. It all stemmed from the JJ Huddle charging $12 and then the mass exodus. It was football season and the Huddle went to hell and I needed somewhere to get my OSU fix.
Fall '09. I was living in Copenhagen, Denmark. Promoting and bartending for a nightclub off the books. I was also a wannabe DJ, still learning the ropes. Before that, around August, I quit my first "real" job (lol call center) and said fuck this and picked up and left the country. I booked a one way ticket and my parents flipped out. That lasted 6 months. I was partying a LOT, but I loved every second of it.
Then back to the real world, moved back in my parents to figure out the next move. Started to get reallllly depressed. Job hunting from my parent's basement was not going well. I was also working like 3 odd jobs at the time and getting stupid drunk at local bars in my shitty hometown. Two of my best friends recently moved to NYC and I said fuck it again and decided to leave. I started putting their address on my resume and eventually got interviews. Eventually got hired. That was 7.5 years ago, I've moved to 5 different aparments since then. Job is ok and I DJ regularly. Got a gf, not engaged, no kids, life is going rather well.
