Grade 11 in high school, planning to be a psychologist or journalist (just another one of those teenagers totally confused about their futures).

I also wash dishes at a bakery/deli.

Yeh thats me :lol:
So yeh beat that


I am going to try to get that job when I am 18(or w/e it is).

Currently, I am in High school. I am almost out! I'm a Junior(16). I don't have a job, but I might get one over summer or something.

Afterwards if I choose to stick with the band im in, I(along with the other people) will move closer to our bassist since he lives farther away. Then we will try to get a practice space and start practicing a lot. I already made the decision I am not going to College unless I wanted to go to Musicians Institute or something(its still in the air).
Favorite Drummer: Jason Bittner

Currently in a band. Starting after High School

Currently Active duty Air Force working in Washington DC. Cool place. never thought I would wear a business suit in the White House in the AM then duck into some black chucks, jeans and T-shirt, earrings and tats showing and off to play shows around DC, Fairfax, and Baltimore on my evenings. As stressfull as life gets sometimes, it is ABSOLUTELY worth it.

I work for the Nebraska State Patrol. I install and repair the patrol units with all their gear. (lights, radar, radio, ect) It's a pretty fun job and very flexible with my bands schedule.
Real music is out there, real people are playing it.
