i don't know if i would call it a day job, but i own a swim school, intotheswim.com. i started it because when ever i didn't have a tour i always taught swimming. now it runs without me for the most part. i tour whenever i want and fortunately it is successful enough i can be more selective on what gigs/tours i want to do. to be honest, you'll find a lot of "pro" musicians are doing similar things.

I'm not there yet, but I'm headed for fighter pilot, then commercial pilot once i get a bit older....I'm on track so far. Only downside is that i will be drum-less for almost a decade.

If that doesn't work out, I'll probably do something like Unix

I teach drums in two schools in east Kent. I've only done it since Jan, and its been really interesting so far. My teaching skills have improved a lot. I find it hard to teach the smaller children though, like 6 year olds. I'm not sure exactly what to teach without them getting bored.. 6 year olds have really short attention spans.

Update Number Three:

I've moved up from doing cleanup at a butcher shop to being a full-blown meat cutter.
I do that 40 hours a week during summer. During the school year I take about 20 units and work about 20 hours a week.
