Im currently in year 11
So obviously I cant have a full time job, or anything too exciting due to the workload
So in my spare time I teach guitar and drums, which is actually not too bad
Atleast Im earning money teaching something I enjoy

Just making sure that you just said you were 11 years old
If this is true and you are teaching then that would be quite an accomplishment

Potatoe Sack did you do a degree in something like food and nutrition, microbiology or Biology?

I am in uni doin Biology, though about to start my years placement either in a company that makes and tests nicotine drugs :DDDDDD. OR in the Water Management Unit in the Environmental department of the Civil Service.

Though I would give everything up for a chance to get my band signed and tour the world!!!

I'm a cop. Been at it for 17 years. Drumming is my second job and I love it as much if not more. Peace guys!

I am disabled. I gave up playing back in the early 80s to persue other venues. I was in an accident, that kind of messed me up, in the mid 90s. Being disabled, I started to gain wieght. So when my doctor said I must excersize, I started playing again. I can do almost anything, as long as I am sitting down. It all sucks but I am actually better now than I was then due to now I pay attention to the fundamentals and what I am doing instead of anticipating the party afterward.

i clean toilets at a church/school and do setups(tables, chairs, etc). basically im a janitor and just got in trouble for wearing an inappropriate shirt haha. so now i have to wear plain black shirts.

i also have a part time job unloading semi trucks.

other than that i drum at every chance i can get. im gonna hate being in Canada for 5 days. but at the same time it will be a nice break from 3 bands.

I'm going into my last year of high school, and I work at a Grocery store to earn money for my kit/band.

When I'm out I'm going to Uni for something or other, haven't quite decided yet. But me and my friend want to open up a Venue after a few years.
