Cheer up Adam, things could be worse...you could be like me

Live by myself down at school, hardly zero real 'friends'. I've met a couple guys this semester from class, but no one that I actually hang out with outside of class. My best friend I've known my whole life moved back home about two years ago and I've seen him all of 1 time since then.

My other best friend has been in South America the past year, but is actually coming back stateside at the end of this week, so I think me and his brothers are going to catch the Hobbit on Friday, which will be nice.

Parents are getting divorced, last I checked, since I haven't really spoken to them since the last time I was home. And to top it off my gf of 5 years broke up with me earlier this year. I say all that to say this, I'm actually happier now than I've ever been in recent memory.

Kind of hard to believe, but since I've been by myself a lot this past several months, I've been able to make changes in my own life like getting back in shape and spending more time doing band stuff, and I've had more time to work on my hobbies. You're still young, so just take some time and do some self evaluation and try and better yourself. Plenty of time left in our young lives to do lots of great things and meet lots of people, so don't get discouraged if things aren't quite they way you want them to be right now.

You guys think it's bad in school wait until you get out... Half the people you know will relocate to random cities for jobs, or return to their hometown. Then the guys that do stick around will date really shitty women, but think they're 'the one' simply because they feel themselves getting older.

I know what you guys are talking about though. About midway through school you realize you're too far gone from high school to feel a part of that group, but not quite comfortable in your new group at school... That will pass.

Pedalboard thread gets so emo some times.

I like my group, can't say much about the lack of girls, it's physics after all, not biology or cooking. Like joe said, just have a couple of real close mates that'll help you when you're going through a hard time and **** the rest.

One exam down. Only needed a 30 to get a B in the class, 80 for an A. It was pretty damn easy though, so I think I'll walk out with an A in there.

Now to procrastinate all day by watching stuff on youtube and browsing reddit instead of studying for my test tomorrow.

But that's like, the best time to buy golf clubs. They're great for decapitating snowmen.

Man you do all that shit for four years and it seems like the most important thing in the world at the time... Then four years goes by and you print out your transcript and go 'this is what all that work was for?'

Spoiler Alert: It's a piece of paper.

Amen.

Too many people I know are getting married. What I find weird is that some people I know are still dating people from high school.

Yeah, I tricked them into letting me build a looper for class credit.

It's got 5 loops, and then a booster with boostrapped power rails and a parametric EQ. so many wires....

Also, what to watch on Netflix? I finished Breaking Bad the other day.

Noice. Were those the predrilled Mammoth looper enclosures that you said they drilled kind of weird or something?

Edit: You watch The Walking Dead? It's worth getting into.

I watch it every now and then. Not crazy into it, but it's a good show.

Yeah, those are Mammoth ones. I accidentally ordered them predrilled, so there's 3 or 4 extra holes for what I had planned on the jack side haha.


Looper works great. According to multimeter. Haha. Just need to finish the boost and EQ.

Haha, gotcha.

Yeah, I can't bring myself to buy predrilled. I just hate spending the extra dough on it when I can do it myself, plus I always want top mounted jacks, and it seems most places either don't do top mounted drilling, or, if they do, they don't have a pot/switch drilling layout I like.

Is Dexter still on there? The first few seasons are great (as is the whole show, but particularly the early seasons when you're still learning the background.)

I just watched Wilfred a few weeks ago... It is god damn hilarious. Very dark, but very funny.
