I'm 50% scared that I'm doing the same thing, except I've been going at it with the demos since I was 17. But I don't live in an interesting place like Chicago. And whenever I go out honestly I don't have fun. Usually I'm very bored and need to drink and smoke to feel somewhat stimulated. The only fun part for me is cracking jokes with my friends.it was much needed. I wasted my greatest years, sadly. Instead of going out and having a good time while living in the heart of Chicago, it was many nights of getting stoned and practicing/making demos that no one will even hear.
And taking practicing and recording seriously is what keeps me sober and gives me purpose. For some reason doing this makes me feel fulfilled. And while I don't expect to get rich or famous, at least I would like to make a product that I can be proud of. I just wish I could turn this activity into something social to meet more people like me in real life, and not in online forums. Hell I'm even thinking of just recycling some stuff into acoustic songs and go out and try to play that by myself in some bar or somewhere...
