1. Music: Playing in bands, going on tour, writing and recording at home, writing and recording in studios. Listening to and learning about new stuff, going out to shows, geeking at the record store and with friends, general mockery.
2. Work: I feel happiest and most balanced when I've got some good work to push hard on. I've been working in the cannabis industry for the past 3 or so years. Like the plant itself, I've found working in cannabis to be intellectually challenging, personally rewarding and generally pretty fun.
3. My People: My chosen family is incredibly important to me. Working on art and life in the context of DiY and punk culture is complicated, but it has definitely taught me the value and depth of my ties with friends. I see intimacy and connection coming in a whole variety of unpredictable forms and I value them immensely.
4. Time and Space: Hurry and Claustrophobia are awful.
