Why I am here.

By pravda23
My name is John Bartmann. I am a 26-year-old white South African man with two living parents, an older brother and an older sister. I work in the music industry, connecting bands with fans and vice versa through Overtone.co.za, the music editorial blog I edit.

Every evening for the past month or so, I've been working on attracting the money we need to stay afloat during the day, and returning to my room alone to make music by night.

I have not exercised in weeks. I have no money to join the others on their Monday night outings to Jamaica Me Crazy, and I've alienated myself from everyone except my workmates.

I drink around 6 coffees a day, and I have no girlfriend. I amuse myself through late nights making music and jamming with others as often as possible. I know loads of people who enjoy making music, and I connect with them as often as possible.

My pet hate is sitting around a table socialising, especially in a public place or for some or other social event (eg, birthday, mothers day, etc).

I have no religion, and I consider myself free of any attachments. There is nothing in my life that I could not drop and walk away from in 30 minutes.

The reason I am alive is to create music and film and whatever else pleases the senses, for the amusement of my own eyes and ears. That's why I am here.
