i play drums, go to school and live in my mums basement. All of the local businesses have conspired with each other to not give me a "job", so i am yet to find summer employment.

I'm currently working in the Rizla factory, where most of the world's sigarettepaper is produced. But I recently got a great offer and in September I'll be going to AGFA - Gevaert, they're specialized in the production of light sensitive materials and other photograhical materials. Better pay, so I can start saving up for that DW kit ;)

Used to teach, but it got to be a hassle, since I don't drive...
Used to work at a drum shop, but I didn't sell anything 'cause I was teaching/giving tips...

Now I am a waiter at a fancy schmancy place in downtown LA. The money is *great* and I only have to work 3 days a week (maybe 25 hours). Which gives me tons of time to shed. Oddly enough - working at the drum shop, I never got to practice, since I had to work a million hours at minimum wage...

I work in the Graphical departement so most of the rolls pass through us.
About Rizla silver, they're a pain in the ass to produce, so thin they always jam the machines, nice to know that you enjoy them.

Do I work? Heck, I have a family, a mortgage, etc. etc. You bet I work. I MOSTLY work.

I still find time to practice on a pad daily, on the kit several times a week, and with other musicians as needed (depends on the gig/project). A lot of the musicians I play with are veterans in a similar position to me; we can learn thirty new cover songs by listening to the recordings and then rehearsing for four or five hours to tighten it up, learn endings, etc. Working on originals takes a bit different approach...

But yeah, I work.

It's only part-time, so plenty of drumming for me!

I work full time during the week and part time on Saturday's and I am married with no kids. I take lessons one night a week and since I pay for those lessons it would be a waste of money to not practice. I make sure I set at least an hour a day 4 to 5 times a week to practice. My wife is very supportive of this time as well....thank god. I don't take phone calls during that time either......that time is my time.

I work full time and have plenty of time for drumming. In fact, it seems like ever since I started working full time I have more time for drumming due to the fact that I'm on a fixed schedule.

I work full time and I usually go home from work (pretty close by) over my lunch break and play for about 45 minutes and eat lunch at my desk. I am currently single, so I do have time to spare and I occasionally play during the evenings and weekends, but for some reason my lunch hour is when I have the best ideas.
