I kinda made this strange decision a long while ago, that I wouldn’t be able to learn proper rhythm and learn to stay in-time on the piano without learning the drums.  Also it sounds fun, and I like making music, so I figure, hey, another tool in the toolbox.

So I started asking a few friends what a good electronic drum kit costs (because apartments are not conducive to regular drum kits) and looked up what it would cost to take lessons.  Price-point is right where I expected on both accounts, so I think i’ll be moving forward here in the next month or two.

School’s a bitch, but it’s no different than work in my opinion.  The fact of the matter is, you have work to do and you need to get it done.  School is actually HARDER because there is an unstructured schedule of when you can do work.  So you tend to put things off or work at really strange hours (which ultimately makes the entire semester feel like one really long grind).

But, we all have to remember to schedule in time for the things we really want to do.  So today, I took my first step.  Now to take the next one…

  1. I really, really enjoyed all of your posts. Your blog is seriously the blog I never have but tried to make. I can tell share a lot of the same beliefs, especially on the internet and how it affects us, and even more importantly how biased ones opinion might be based on when they grew up. We also have simlar hobbies it seems.. I am a programmer (even though I have never actually written a program from start to finish) but I compulsively hack networks, and it is what eventually what landed me a job.

    Anyways, I stumbled onto your blog because of an idea im working with Google, and “alcoholism” was on of the key words…. I can honestly say I have never been so distracted while working by a blog. Well done, sir.

    Also, for the drumkit, go with Maschine. I am still learning but I have a Maschine Mikro and the thing is awesome.

    Take care
