If you have commitments such as work, study, girlfriend, friends, etc...

DO NOT BUY GEAR.

I have 2 essays overdue now because my blofeld arrived yesterday, and I am not gonna be done playing with it for at least a week.

maybe your essays could be about gear.

"the blofeld and hegemonic tendencies within capitalism"

or

"gear lust: confronting the musical / sexual dichotomy"

It's not that bad considering there's plenty of time while studying to go out and have fun. You can't spontaneously decide to go to London or Berlin for a weekend or few mid-week days when you're working full time. Or at least not that easy.

On the other hand, the financial security a full time job provides is very nice, hah. Peace.

yeah pros and cons, and it probably depends on the person...but i was a pretty anxious student, couldn't really relax during term time..always worrying about the huge workload, etc

Lol, yeah, there's nothing quite as rewarding as living the life of a pro beat maker, constantly feeling the near-unbearable pressure of a dozen deadlines making you curl up in a corner whilst desperately trying to concentrate into making yet another 10 beats simultaneously, even though your body is way past warning you that you actually are in imminent need of a more healthy dose of sleep per day. :lol:

Of course, then there's the money, fame, girls and some more money to make up for all that I suppose. 8)
