all i want to do is tour constantly? same thing happened when i watched the car bomb documentary “why do you do this”. they both talk about how hard touring consistently is, how much you have to give up, how exhausted you get, how little money you have, how dangerous it can be, how depressed it can make you, how little food you get to eat, but to just get in a van with a bunch of friends and travel all over the place playing shows, it just seems so worthwhile to me.
i’ve been on a few tours now, nothing major (i’ve never been on tour for, say, a month or something), but even then those tours have been some of the most rewarding and fun experiences of my life, and have changed my outlook on life significantly.
that’s what i want to do with my life. i don’t care if i’m penniless until the day i die. i’d rather have no money and spend my life doing what i love than have all the money i could ask for but at the cost of working a shitty retail job for the rest of my life. i can survive on not much food.
it might be a long time coming, but i’m sure i’ll get there. hopefully i get to tour some more in the near future. it’s always a bummer not playing shows.
