I have a drum-set but rarely play it because I don't want to get my neighbors angry and also just playing drums by yourself isn't that amazing. I thought I would be incredibly rusty but I managed to play two songs and had a great time. Because I haven't played in a long time my hands are like baby hands compared to someone who actually drums a lot. The sticks quickly gave me three huge blisters. When I was drumming a lot in my late teens and early twenties I had huge calluses and until now I hadn't really realized how important they were. My hands simply can't play for long periods of time.
In a few weeks my friends are going to be throwing an event in downtown Hanamaki. I was never a great DJ but I had equipment and learned how to do it and I am being asked to do a short DJ set at that event too. I am really happy that I have friends who actually invite me to do cool things again. Because I was in such a remote area of Hokkaido I had nothing like what I have in Iwate. Anyways this is just going to be a short blog and I'll post some pictures of the DJ event after. Thanks for reading.
