Last night was the second and last time playing a gig with the Herbert Wiser Band
. While fun while it lasted, they were in need of a drummer willing to put in full time effort. For me, that's just not possible right now. I digress.
I need to start looking for an apartment. I need to start getting more organized. I need to update my cymbals on my drumkit. I need to get Katie
a Valentine's Day gift. I need to get some work done. I need to clean the house. I need to do my laundry.
I seriously remember about four or five years ago how little responsbility I had. The truth is, I always felt that I had this huge amount of responsibility on my shoulders. All self inflicted responsbility, mind you. I wonder if I really don't have any responsibilities now, but I'm just putting undue pressure on myself. It seems to happen a lot. That's something I see all the time; Americans putting pressure on themselves when the world and the situation don't warrant it. Take your typical, yuppie commuters as examples. Most of them feel pressure to look like every other yuppie that used to be cool. They feel pressure from their bosses to read the Wall Street Journal. I don't ever want to put that kind of lame pressure on myself, even though I know I do. So why do I do the things that I do, oh why oh why...
