that ending was really quite, like intense for me because I kind of just, like, left everything and moved to Oregon. I did. I just really dipped out. I was supposed to be a wedding, I suppose, through all this stuff and after our last show, I just kind of left. And then I left the country so in a big way, like I needed to, kind of, I guess find myself again because when you're in a project like that and I was in a relationship as well inside that project, it defines you in a lot of ways that when you define yourself by something outside of yourself, which we all kind of end up naturally doing. Oh, I'm a firefighter. Oh, I'm a teacher. Oh, I am this. It's when you lose that there is. And not only that, but, like I kind of at the same time. It was like a relationship. I moved. I did all this stuff within a month. And so it's like when all of your defining factors have then left you and you're just, like, left with yourself. It was as difficult as that moment was for me. It was probably the best experience I've had to go through because it really made me go inside myself and say, like, What is this that you want? What is this what you want from life? And that's I think that's the way change affects people a lot and really more. The best thing you can do for yourself is like get used to it, you know, get used to the constant motion, the constant change, because that is the only thing you can actually count on that in your own death. Those things we do, things you can actually count on and the more comfortable you get with those because those are like two of basic human nature fears, like we fear death and we fear change because of comfort levels and everything. So it's like I saw that is like my fast paced schooling on how to deal with it. And, you know, you talk about like, the job literally. Yesterday I was like, Fuck, I should get a real job. Like, I guess maybe I should get a real job, you know, And it's creeping. Yeah, and like I think, especially as musicians, too. And the new the new Day and age of music. It's, you know, a lot of people have multiple streams of income, like most of my friends who play music have multiple streams of income and like right now, I do. But it's like I think, you know, the more the more you can get comfortable with that. Because even if I were to get a real job, say Okay, so like, say I go back and get my teaching license because I want to be the only other thing I could ever think I would want to be is like a professor teaching kids how to write poetry, maybe not kids, but like adults or young adults. And I'm like, Okay, so then I would have to go back to school, more debt that I would have to. After that, I would like have to find a job in a university, which is actually just as difficult honestly as being a musician, like a lot of the things I could see myself doing, like recently, I've been like Maybe I'll just try to, like, somehow figure out how to be an editor because I love reading and I love correcting. So I've been like researching that and I'm like, Could that be a side hustle? You know, I think it's about finding, like the right side hustles to, like, keep keep your because for me it's like whatever I can do, like here's my creative spirit. Here's my music, my writing. I am in service to you writing world, and I'm like whatever I can do, whatever hustle I can make happen to make that life happen is the key for me is the goal. So it's like I was a bartender all last year, you know, I've I've done babysitting. I've done landscaping. I've done everything I've dreamed we'd for days on end. You know, like I go out to California and do the hustle. I've done a lot of different shit, and it's like sometimes I feel the societal anxiety from that of like shit, like my resume sucks. Like I've never had a real job. I've never like done. I pay taxes all the things, But I you know, as far as like, if I were to be a higher
