Having a Hobby Away From Your Work

I believe that having a hobby away from work is very important. For some it's model trains, others it's video gaming, etc. For me, it's drumming.


I got interested in drumming when I first started listening to rock music when I was 6 or 7. When I was 9 or 10, we set up an old electric drum kit in our house, and I drummed to songs for a couple years, until the drums stopped working as well and we had to put the kit away.

Recently, my grandma brought my dad's old acoustic drum set over, and it's been set up in our house and I've picked up drumming again. Having a hobby is a great thing, and I really enjoy drumming because it is an escape from stress and writing projects, which I consider work. Below is a video link to a drum cover I did for Van Halen's new song "She's the Woman."
