Obviously, music makes us the happiest! When we’re rehearsing or playing on stage together we all feel our best. The expression and emotional outlet of music makes it really easy for us to feel comfortable. Listening to music is also a huge source of dopamine for us, and is probably what we spend the second most time doing besides practicing and playing. Playing music is also an activity that we can watch ourselves improve at, and the feeling of motivation to get bigger and better every time is extremely rewarding, and a really good source of longer term happiness.

Illustration, design, and craft have always been my biggest creative outlets, allowing me to not only express my thoughts and feelings, but even giving me something tangible to commemorate my hard work.
