I just got back from a wonderful, two night Drum and Bugle Corp show. Not the kind of Bugles you eat, either. I always love these shows! I try to get my tickets on the front row. Months in advance.
When I was in college for a few years, I was a music major. I played percussion. I even marched in a corp one year.
My happy times on dietary ketosis just ended. I guess it's time to get off the very-low-calorie kick for a while! I was cryin' and carryin' on about how much I missed my former life as a musician.
I seem to remember that alot of college musicians go around hungry all the time. The "starving artist" thing. Kinda Bohemian. Milk crate furniture. Skinny by default. We literally practiced our butts off. Besides, "What do you do with a B.A. in English?" to quote Avenue Q!
I guess the grass is always greener... Or perhaps the Monsters are always greener!
