drum roll please
A HUGE first for me.
(Thank you Anna over at Pencil Lines!)

holy moly roly poly
It felt so good to finally create something that I have SO much LOVE for. I've been drumming since I was 17. Right after I graduated from high school, I then became a student of drumming all summer long (and perfector of NOISE!? bwahahaa!) Such a crazy story. But long story short. I never wanted to play. Never dreamed I would BE behind a drum set. I'd always go to concerts and think-HECK yeah! The drummer rocks!
I guess you could say it was meant to be.
And my super cheesy instructional video was the BEST. I never learned anything from it other than Elvis singing pretty woman.
Hey, it came free with the set. And I turned that song into a punk song. Well, every song for that matter. I had a hard time keeping the beat :)
So here it is! YAY! I used Kl's papers for this and got all crazy artistic on it. (she inspires me to no end) I literally just let go all over this thing!
This is the hardest secret I had to keep. And one of the hardest pages I've made. I felt like since it was the first it had to rock. It had to say everything I had felt about it the last 11 years and then some. Crazy. But it's here now. And I'm thankful. It's a piece I've been waiting this long to make and it's here. And it was worth it.
and play LOUD
