"How long have you been playing, and have you ever played with Orchestra Drums/Percussion? Like Tiphany Drums, or Xylophones?"

I've actually only been playing a few years, I started learning late high school. I've always been into music but I'd only played Woodwinds before I started learning Drums. Although I much prefer drums now that I can play 'em :P

That doesn't stop half the office from taking a smoke break every 15 minutes. :P


Programmers are creative types, they WILL find a way to take breaks ;)

Relevant XKCD: http://xkcd.com/303/

I want to bring up this XKCD to the major in charge of my shop as an excuse for me to bring some Crown Royal to work.

Ha! I knew that'd be the Ballmer peak one! There's truth to it, too. Programming is weird.

The hardest part about it isn't the computer, the languages, or even other people - it's really about learning to reliably get into that mental state of flow. If you can do that on demand, you can do really -really- well with it... and yeah, after hours of that, it's like you have to logout back into the real world. I call that transition time "dumpshock"

"I love anything Percussion. I have even played a Bass or two in my life. Rhythms and Beats drive the world. They are the Heart Beat Of Life. And the Motivation Of Dance. IMHO."

Yeah, and I am not sure that I can do anything 100% my own IE not fanfictions, actually my own universes.

"THAT may be where I can help you."

Heh, thanks, but I'll get there.
I haven't worked since June 2012. Been on disability ever since.

My supervisor constantly has to remind me to take a lunch break because I get so caught up in what I'm doing. I suppose that's better than being reprimanded for being on reddit all day. :P

They say if you can drum, you can dance!

I'm a testament to the contrary.

My boss doesn't care how I spend my time, as long as I hit my sprint goals... which I do, because even if I end up spending all day on the forums, I can still work remotely from home at night ;)

.. but yeah, I've OFTEN had the situation where I looked up, and over at the window... and couldn't remember if the half-light meant morning was starting, or twilight was ending..

True. I might get some sort of outline done, when I get to it.
