Who. Is. Drew?
Hi – I’m Drew and I’m a California Cowboy.
To get real, the reason we’re not that serious is because some serious shit went down when I was in high school and it turned me into a bit of a clown, to the point where I enjoyed shocking the occasional social victim, often at my own expense: always in good spirit, hurt no one, crack up, birth the party.
Looking back, I trace the origins of California Cowboy back to this tough time in my life. The summer before my senior year of highschool, I became very ill and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I was forced to spend a lot of time at home: in bed, on my couch, and away from my friends whom I held so dear. This was hard for me. Actually, it really sucked.
I was an outgoing, athletic, fun-loving kid who grew up riding the waves and slopes of California. Now, I was breaking up outpatient treatment with “The Price is Right” and “CHiPS” reruns (wait, that doesn’t sound half bad…I digress.) I was absent from school for a good chunk of my senior year, and I missed the social interaction, the fun, getting out there and clowning around. Thankfully, I got back to my old self a few years later and did so with a renewed appreciation for self-deprecating humor.
Laughter may not be the best medicine, but man, does it ease the pain in everyone’s life. We all take our jobs and our lives seriously – the trick is not to take yourself too seriously while you do it.
