I don’t know what made me decide that I had a natural affinity for the drums. Especially since I’ve never actually played them. I guess I thought I would be good at it because it combines my affinity for hitting stuff with my affinity for looking cool. A few years ago a friend gave me a set of drum sticks & then we proceeded to hit pots & pans, which Lane also did. I don’t know why I thought if I sucked at hitting pots & pans, I would rock at playing the drums.
I was at my friends new house & she led me into a room with a set of garage sale drums. It was the first time I ever sat behind a drum set. So naturally the first thing I did was take pictures of me looking cool. Then, finally it was time to play. I, like Lane Kim, knew this was my calling. Then I actually tried to play & realized it wasn’t. At least I looked cool.
