    Yeh depends what mood you're in. I always find it easier to mix around people as well. Hate recording on my own for some reason.

    Dont think of it like a chore, chill out a bit just keep practising and it'll all come together once you stop thinking about so much. Its all about pitch riding tho, im trying to learn to mix soley by riding, gonna take some getting used to as ive fallen into bad habits, but all will be worth it in the end.
