I live in Tennessee, I'm 14 which means no car, so I have absolutely nothing to do but computer, play drums, and explore the woods. I'll occasionally watch a TV show but very rarely.

I used to live in California where you were within walking distance of anything. I miss it so much compared to this mind-numbing boredness.

Oh yeah, and sometimes when my or my friends parents have enough time to drive 20-30 miles to our houses, I'll hang out with them.

Pyrate, Welcome to the forum!

When I'm not drumming, I'm watching my kids. Or, rather, when I'm not watching my kids, I'm drumming...

I used to have many many hobbies; skateboarding, drawing, playing games, playing video games, bike riding, soccer, tennis, hockey, etc. Now that I have NO free time whatsoever it seems, I find myself drawn to do what I'm most passionate about in what little time I do get, which is music. Drums or recording if my wife is watching the kids, or maybe some guitar or marimba or vibes when the kids are asleep...

I'm a masked crimefighter so I'm constantly monitoring my "world eye" for any disturbances, and when I spot trouble, I don my cape and fly there.
Oh and I also run my electrical business.

Family and Marriage maintenance.
I am an rocker roller listening to my different long plays, tapes, cd's memorizing music then later on putting into drums.
Read, go for a stroll, travel, taste a good cup of wine and smoke a cigar...Living life to the maximum.

I always wanted to be a Chef. Was learning in the family restaurants at age 8.

When I'm not playing drums my time looks like this:

Recording LP for last year and it is finally being mastered (argghhh). The hard part was the fact that I was done tracking the whole LP in 1 day. Talk about anticipation!

Water Polo matches for baby girl who took MVP as a Junior by the way.

I spend too much time online but that's because the other 4 people in my family hog the TV.

I like to read and enjoy listening to new music.

Spend time with family as much as humanly possible. My family is bunch of clowns and laughter is a huge part of our social time together.

Take care of mom now that she is in her last days.

I'm THAT BORED! I'm either doing this (and other drawings obviously), at school, doing work, on the guitar or reading one of my many Inspector Rebus novels in front of the telly. I really should practice my drums more to be honest.

Btw that's nothing like my real writing, you wouldn't believe how terrible it is compared to that drawing.

Homework, Drummerworld, chores, playing with my (somewhat) new puppy, YouTube, being obsessed with the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus, church, eating, watching tv, drawing house plans sometimes, hanging out with friends, internet social networking sites, and, occasionally, baking.

I'm just a good all around 19 year old.

Hmm... I don't really know. It seems like I'm not home that much, I guess hanging out with friends. You know what the worst is though, when you have a cold, and your at home doing nothing, but your head hurts too much to play drums. That makes me sad

ROFLOL, I was married 17 years, and that was STILL my fave activity...lol

I am a husband and father full time, So when I am not playing I am watching my daughters, or tending horses. I do enjoy to read when I can, and I used to be an avid bodybuilder, powerlifter and enjoyed Grappling. I also do side work as a bouncer.

Default Re: What do you do when you are NOT drumming?

Having little life outside of drumming, I'd say that watching a DVD or reading are about all I do. The other activity is travelling to and from drumming. I do it for a living and am unmarried with no kids I know of. Plus these days I am trying to stay a professional musician so all my effort goes into that through building a teaching practice and playing live. I probably spend about 70 hours a week drumming. Maybe more. I also still take the odd lesson, had one just last week. Plus I practice drums and percussion. My brother complains because he never sees me because of my constant drumming. Now that there is a looming economic crisis I am taking even more students in case some drop off. So far I've been lucky and have only lost 1 students for that reason. Plus 1 has gone from hourly weekly classes to 30 minute fortnightly classes. Aside from that there is no real problem. I'm a bit tired though I must admit.

Hmmm... As someone in my final year at highschool, I'm either earning my tuition for post-secondary, in school, or doing homework.

I lead a very exciting life.

I'm writing a paper for my psychology class as soon as I'm done typing this.
