i try to realize when i'm actually not in a hurry or don't HAVE to get so mad. like the other day 2 women were standing next to one another on the escalator and not walking. i took a deep breath, got on and just slowly rode to the top. pretty sure i rolled my eyes and laughed to myself that i let this shit get to me.

people who stand on the left side of the escalator are seriously the worst. I'm not sure if it's considered a big deal elsewhere, but in DC if you do that on the metro, especially when it's busy, you're playing a game of how long until an angry person taps you on the shoulder tells you to get out of the way. We have some of the longest escalators in the Western Hemisphere, this is no fuckin joke

DO YOU MIND HAVING YOUR PRIVATE CONVERSATION IN PRIVATE?

WALK LEFT, STAND RIGHT!

and WATCH WHERE YOU'RE GOING (and really meaning it)

are things I find myself saying often. thank god for headphones and the fact i walk faster than dudes with legs much longer than mine. i'm just constantly trying to avoid being held up by oblivious assholes.

haha, i think it's always been unhealthy. just now in a bad way.

Jimmy gave me a voice to be proud of. I've always hated my voice, hated that about myself. And I know people keep saying 'you sound fine' but.....shit, it's just a sort of phobia I have. I learned from his playing how to give myself a voice I don't hate

and i know that sounds weird.

you guys who get mad at everyday normal people stuff are gonna give yourselves aneurysms. try this: "hey, can you please move?" you don't have to suffer but don't expect someone to do something else if you never ask them to. people are oblivious, they aren't trying to fuck with you on purpose

Well put, Reprise.

The only time that stuff sometimes gets to me is if I'm in a rush, but then I make sure to remind myself that it's not the other persons fault that I'm in a rush.

When I was sober yesterday, I was waiting in line behind a group of 2 guys and 2 girls who were clearly loaded and I had to try not to appear annoyed cause I didn't wanna be "that guy". It helped to remind myself how many times I've done the same sorta shit.

You are correct. The thing that brings out my neuroticism about it is that how can you not know escalator decorum. People complain about escalefters all the time. It's widely accepted and widely known that you walk on the left and stand on the right, so to witness that so many people still don't understand a basic cultural rule of living in the city is hard to grasp

Or consider the number of people who block up the left lane when they are driving. You can't get a license without learning this extremely basic rule of the road. And yet all these people don't know? Is it really that, or is there an element of myopic thinking, of selfishness? Not that they are TRYING to piss off any given person in particular but rather that they don't care about others enough to think about how their actions are impacting the world around them?

In Florida, anyway, there's not an actual law about passing on the left, or slow traffic on the right, etc. So it's not actually learned before getting a license... not officially, anyway.

It wasn't the law in Maryland until recently but we still had to learn it as the correct thing to do regardless of the law. *shrug*

yes, it's probably myopia most of the time. and as you get older your idea of what is fast and what is important when driving will change. i honestly can't understand putting so much energy into stuff like this. that's just me. it's just driving, you're going to get there

I am not sure you do, tbh.

are you attempting to pull a fast-forward-downward-spiral, you know, LIKE JC, only within a year and with alcohol? is that something part of you is trying to accomplish?
I'm starting to think it is.

are you looking forward to hiding your shaking hands when someone sees you in the morning? looking forward to pissing your bed in 2 months from now?

Ram, ffs. the plan was "to fall apart" this summer, right? I didn't think you meant KEEP DRINKING LIKE AN IDIOT.

right now, you are in the perfect and maybe last-ever situation to actually stop. you are at home. you have a support system. currently no classes. you have a therapist in case your drinking has gotten to a level that you are not able to stop cold-turkey without professional help. you know all you have to do is ask. and what do you do, despite knowing all of that? you keep drinking, all the while ruining the best thing for yourself you might have, namely drumming.

put the fucking bottle down or are you keen to experience how it will feel when in half year from now, after you flunked out of college, you can't even drum on a Fisherprice Kit any more?
Are you waiting to hear it from mister JC himself via instagram what you god damn know yourself?

okay then.

Does that work for you? you know I like you a lot, Ram, otherwise I wouldn't shit in your face right now.

P.S. drop by on slack more often, you know nobody there is biting, quite the opposite.

fuck everyday people stuff. drives me damn crazy when a dude piles into a crowded train with a backpack on and not even the common courtesy to take it off when they obviously see everyone struggling to move by them and the dude only turns around to watch people smacking into him and pretends to make space. meanwhile i'm standing there with my backpack between my shoes. fuck you, sir.
