Re: Take it out on your drums?
When I was 17 and just got my first drum set, it was totally there for me. I had all of the teen angst combined with some pretty heavy familial issues going on. My drums were my outlet, both creatively and emotionally. Now, 12 years later, it's paying the bills. Looking back, I see it as a way that I took my positive and negative energy, focused them into something worthwhile, gave it time, and good came out of it that changed the course of my life in a way I wouldn't have expected.
Yeah, it's a random morning for me, too...
