When I was in high school, all I wanted to do was become a professional rock n rollian someday, i wasn’t thinking about the countless minutes that would be spent on the road going from 1 motel room to the next all the while wondering if I would ever make it farther than I was in life, however that’s what happened to me for about 10 years when I had the life of a touring rock n rollian.
I wasn’t ecstatic and I felt love I had to compromise what I like the most just to make currency.
This is disheartening to anyone who wishes to pursue an art form as a way to make currency in life. Few artists will tell you with sincerity that they chose their path in life for financial reasons, or that they’d be happy to compromise on their artistic pursuits in an effort to make more money. That’s precisely where I landed myself, so I decided to start working remotely plus touring as a rock n rollian. I work with social media platforms and help with digital public relations firms. It’s not the most fun work in the world, but it gives me a good financial supplement to the currency I make as a rock n rollian. That helps when I’m primarily residing in a town that doesn’t have a ton of enjoyable rock n roll locations that I can play at on a bi-weekly basis. There’s 1 near my home but it doesn’t have the best indoor Heating and Air Conditioning compared to the kinds of rock n roll locations I’m used to. In fact, the heating and cooling is so subcommon that I have loathed playing live shows there on the few instances when I have. I’d rather drive across the town and play at a unusual rock n roll location just so I’m not dripping with sweat or shivering on phase depending on the season and the weather outside.
