"It can be quite
boring most of the time, when I'm not hanging out with my friends.
It's basically me and my computer chair and the computer. And then
uh, if a buddy decides to call me up, then it'll be a bunch of
us hanging out. Or I'll write some music, I'll uh, do different
kinds of things. I play some video games. So it's uh, very average.
Whenever I write a new song and I realize that it's working, this is
a song that is gonna work, and I'm gonna be able to finish a
whole project, and just the dynamics come together, it's very gratifying.
So my perfect day would be writing the perfect song."
