I haven't posted here in a long time, and I should be writing a final paper for my composition class, but I need a break and feel compelled to post something to UG.
It's crazy that I've been a member of this site for over five years now! I joined up after I started playing bass at age 14; and in twenty-three hours I'll be 21. I've changed a lot since first getting on here, and yet it seems that much of this site hasn't changed since then. When I was 14, all I wanted was to play music and tour with a band. My goals have changed so much since then; my passions now lie with writing and many other things besides just music alone. Physically, my hair is short, my beard is epic, and I'm covered in ink and piercings. One might say I'm not the same guy who joined UG as mountaindew88, but some part of that skinny, poofy-haired kid is around here somewhere.
I don't really play bass anymore; I've mostly switched to guitar for my own projects and eventually with the band I used to play bass in, Humble an Empire. Maybe it's my new beginning on a new instrument that's driven me to come back here. I've achieved so much with four strings, and hopefully I can be just as satisfied with six.
