Drummer here, too. Started playing at age 10, now in mid-30's. Still play in a band, though family obligations limit the time I can dedicate to it. I originally stated playing drums because a snare drum was cheaper than the saxophone I wanted. I don't think my mom really though that one through.

Nice read. At least when you are working during your vacation, it is to your direct benefit. It's upsetting when you see salaried employees pressured to work during vacations and after hours (I've been there). It seems like there's a bit of trade-off, but one that seems to be working for you.

So you continued to work 3-5 per day while on vacation? Is this work on a personal project or for an employer?

I just finished a weeks vacation where I did not do a single minute of work, or even check email. This was not the case in the past. I'm so glad I did. Sure, there were things waiting for me when I got back, even a minor emergency. But the world didn't end and my coworkers appreciated that I was back so I could resume my duties.
