10 random facts about me

I created this new site and blog during the winter break of 2017-18 but since the creation, I haven’t had much time to post or keep it updated. Now that it is summer, I “should” have some time to put new content. This post will hopefully be the first of many to come.

To start this new trend of updated material I wanted to do something random and fun…so here are 10 random (and fun) facts about me that you may or may not know.

1. Counting

200

I always count how many paper towels I as I pull them out of the dispenser. After I dry off my hands, I also think I use too many and that I am wasteful. I say to myself that I will do better next time…but I don’t.

2. Drive-thru

200w

Another thing I always do is try to eat something from my drive-thru order before leaving the parking lot. I think I picked this up from having to eat quick in drum corps but also from having a busy lifestyle in grad school.

3. Searching

200w-2

My favorite waste of time is spending hours on YouTube searching for new music to program or play on future concerts or any other new music that may interest me. I spiral down a rabbit hole of related videos and next thing I know it is 1 AM.

4. Workaholic

200w-3

It hard to me to sit still. I always need a project to do, a piece to practice, or something else to occupy my time. I know it is probably not healthy but I always bring work to do at home. I need to find a better work life to home life balance. 

5. What if

200w-4

Every couple weeks or so I think about how my life would be different if I went to a different or took a different job or made other different decisions. These thoughts soon subside and turn into I wouldn’t have the wonderful life I have now with my wife, dogs, job, etc. 

6. Other occupations

200w-5

Speaking of what if…if I wasn’t a music educator, my dream job would be playing drum set for a touring group. But not just any touring group. I would love to play for a worship band like Hillsong or Elevation Worship. Having played in worship bands for close to 20 years there is something that I enjoy about corporate worship that makes me want to do it full-time. Either be a drummer or a foley artist.

200w-6

7. Dog food

200w-7

As a kid I hated the smell of dog food and would avoid the dog food aisle at the supermarket. Now that I have pups of my own, I still dislike the smell but as a provider of food for the pups I tolerate it so they can eat. Also, my pups are the BEST!

8. Blinker

200-3

I always use my blinker. If it was 2 AM and there were no cars around, I will still use my blinker. I may do this because I despise it when people don’t use theirs and I am expected to read their minds while driving. 

9. Live music

 200-2

I would rather buy or listen to a live performance or album over a studio recorded one. There is something real and authentic about live music that draws me to those recordings instead of fully edited music from a studio. Maybe this comes from my enjoyment to go hear live music.

10. Pickles

200-4

Last but not least random fact about me is that I hate pickles. Keep them away from me!!!
