    Ever meet someone and feel like you're pestering them with texts since you're always the one to start a conversation? Then you do one of those "ok, I'm just gonna not text and wait for her to message ME this time" kinda deals, and usually it just means you lose contact? :lol: I guess the logic being that if they really have any interest in keeping in contact, they'll eventually reach out to you right? Seems a good way to weed out new friends or dates that are just being "nice" but aren't all that interested.

    Actually got a message back this time. :yesway:

    It's a small victory, and kinda childish nonsense to think of things this way, but I like to appreciate the little details that make your day.

    I feel like I've got a legit post this time:

    If anyone's been following any of my threads about recording, or the album art discussion, or has listened to any of the random junk I've put up on soundcloud - I've finally finished that album. It's a bit short for an album, and it's got some rough edges, but I'm happy with it and calling it done. Release date is picked, digital distro is scheduled and and small handful of physical CDs are on the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

    :scream: :shred:

    I did the same thing with a lot of my "friends" over the years and it's surprising how many I haven't talked to since.

    The show and the trip to Philly were an awesome time! Though I don't think I'll ever drive 12 hours each way to see a show again, flying or train from now on. :noplease:. Also pretty pissed that Electric Factory started the show 30 minutes after doors and had an absolutely stupid line that outside the venue that snaked around the block and then doubled back on itself to the entrance. I missed all of Russian Circles and almost all of Devin's set, though I had that doors were at 3:30 and not 3 despite the huge piss off, the remainder of the show was incredible, and it rekindled my interest in Opeth.

    Also cool side-story: after the show, my buddy and I went to the casino nearby where I had parked my car for the weekend to play some roulette. Sat down and look over and I see Mario for Gojira. :lol: I didn't talk to him much since he was looking pretty focused on his gambling but I basically confirmed it was him and then told him that they're awesome and I love coming to see their shows, to which he seemed genuinely grateful so he's a good dude in my book.

    My final day of university is next Wednesday and all my work is handed in, I've just got to do a 10 min presentation. I've been stressing about it since last November as I had a huge project to do. However it's all paying off as I'm on course to finish with a good result!

    Also I have a new 8 string which I got yesterday waiting for me at home to play. :yesway:

    Come to the realization after a long hard mental battle that I don't need other people to make me happy. For years I've lamented over failed friendships and/or friendships that never came to be no matter how much I wanted them. So, I took a long hard look at what I do have. I have my family, my hobbies, and my life and looking at it right now, it's looking pretty damn good compared to what it could be.

    Also, it's odd how little things in life can make things more convenient or all around better to suit your tastes. Pulled out my mattress from my bed and put it right next to the couch. So, when I get off work at midnight, the wife and I watch a movie or two, and then when it's time to go to sleep, roll from the couch onto the mattress and it's actually quite comfortable.

    Got an unexpected call from a friend that had an extra ticket for Gojira/Opeth last night.

    Gojira pimped it out, hard. First time seeing them live, and they didn't disappoint.

    Opeth, while sounding very good, played mostly newer material that was just boring tbh. But ended the show with a cool medley of older material.

    Great night overall.

    Yesterday, I ironed my sweater for an extended period of time just for the warmth before stepping-out.

    Today, I'm installing the air conditioners because it's going to be hot AF for the next few days.

    Then, I will copy & paste this to the "Why Are You Mad?" thread when I'm sweating my balls off.

    I'm happy because we have shows planned for both of my bands and I got my motivation back to write music, record and make videos.

    Tried learning the guitar for The Spiraling Void the other day and it came way easier than I expected.
    Dove into the rest of The Faceless catalog trying the songs that I always got into but never tried, and found that I just kind of....get Keene's writing style. I am not a good guitar player. Most of the music I listen to, I cannot play. Anything more difficult than basic hardcore or metalcore songs are usually outside of my range of ability, so finding that their material 'speaks' to me was pretty cool. Feels really fulfilling to be able to shred songs I thought I was years away from being able to touch.

    I'm happy because after spraining my ankle 7 months ago I am finally able to go out for an hour run and not have a lingering dull ache all day afterward. Be careful with your joints. A sprain can be just as bad or worse for you than some simple fractures.

    I just finished a song for our electronic/trip hop band. I moved away from one of my best friends of 2o years nearly, but we still work by sending stems. He's in the states, I'm living in a terrible 3rd world country. Yet, we still have managed to make some incredible music.
