Now take that experience and multiply it by ONE MILLLION.
Sister, you have to go to EVERY show, you even have to go to practice!
You have to go to the shows in the basement at Jewish Community Centers at 5pm on a Sunday.
You have to sit in the back of a van and unload a drum kit in New Jersey on Tuesdays.
Or if the show is way across town and your only ride is with the band.
If you are attending a sound check as an event, turn back now. Most likely, you’re really cool and a great person to hang out with for days on end which is why our bandmate is dating you.

If you go to bed with a writer, expect to wake up with shit written about you.This way, I'll still talk to other people, but mentally I'm like, 2. and swing by your place, we hang out for a few hours, and then you have to be up at 8 a.m. On top of that, we’re worried about you and how bored you are. We’re trying to share a creative energy and work out ideas, and some of them are bad ones.I’m helping a few friends through the jungles of online dating and thought that maybe I should pass my dating knowledge onto the world. I’ve made a few, but then again, too few to mention!
