It's super cool that so many of you are in school. I envy the hell out of that (even if it means future debt!)

I make my pittance by teaching private lessons on bass, guitar, and drums every week (and at a month long program for 2 - 12 graders in the summer), gigging as a bass player, doing stuff with the music that actually belongs to the name "Bubblegum Octopus" (I used to tour a lot), occasional soundtrack/remix commissions, and then AV related stuff (which almost always actually translates to: hilariously brutal manual labor).

I have an interview TOMORROW to teach for an ESL program though, fingers freaking crossed.

Also, thanks for posting this Shinichi. I didn't want to be the one to start the thread and look like I just wanted to talk about myself, I just really like "get to know each other" kinda stuff. >_<;;

I also know this particular topic is pretty fucking sensitive for a lot people, so hopefully thinking about it didn't make anyone upset. Life is scary!! I really hope everyone in here that's "looking" or burdened by some other struggle in this realm finds something better!

Currently working at a grocery store that pays a lot for what the job entails, and constantly trying to figure what I'm doing with dontblinkoryoulldie. I've been interested in applying for ESL or something else in Japan, as well as indie game scoring. Also generally very depressed and anxious But I've been playing a lot of shows lately and working on new music so it's not all that bad I guess.

I have cerebral paulsy and so in truth I'm kind of a government mooch who lives at home lol. On the bright side I have made some money from time to time selling albums and getting music on little mobile indie games and whatnot. So when I am in public and someone asks me that I just say "Freelance musician". Honestly I'm pretty happy with my life for the most part. I get to stay at home and do what I love for a hobby or for money and my parents don't really give me grief about it much because a lot of the money I get I am very generous with. The thing that really impresses me though is that all of you are so good musically and yet unlike me most of you actually have lives :).

School huh? Ehhh...in my late teens and early 20's I had a couple of case workers for youth transition and I was taking writing and psychology classes as well as some art and Spanish lol. I had a goal of eventually trying to get into the field of music psychology as I found the idea for the job extremely interesting. Sadly, they ran out of funding for my classes and I ran out of time. Finally, my last case worker who was a really cool guy and missing a leg but could still get around said to my mom and I "Why isn't he on disability?" We said we tried but they denied us. He told us they always do that and we should appeal with a lawyer that works on contingency. We did so and won the case pretty easily. So, I could either go to school and stress myself out going into debt when nobody in my life is pushing me to do so, or stay at home and do what I love all day and use my meager government money to help the family and pull our resources together to stay afloat. When my family has no problem with me staying at home and helping out with money, and the guy who suggested I get on disability was missing a leg it kind of let me know that being in my current situation is socially acceptable after I gave it a decent shot and so I have embraced my situation with open arms :P. Call me lazy if you must, you're probably not wrong but damn it I'm pretty happy ha ha.
