Urgh, I'm ashamed to say I'm being a whiney-ass little bitch because some girl broke it off with me.

I've had 2 (yes, 2!!!) days off uni in a row now due to bad sleeping and lack of motivation, badtimes!

But aside from that, I'm gravy really, my monetary situation is dire but hey, **** it!

therefore I voted 'Yes - fairly happy but things could be better' option. Give me a week and it'll be back up to the 'hell yeah' option!

I'm actually the happiest I've been in a long time. I dropped out of Uni because I was in my fourth year and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Now I'm about to start managing at the restaurant I worked at part time in college. I like my coworkers and I like my work. I still struggle with depression almost daily, but it's sooooo much better than when I was in school.

Well, I always dreamed about moving abroad, and guess, that's where I am?

I haven't made any real friends here yet, but perhaps that'll change someday; this is the only thing that kept me from voting #4. I'm lonely at times, but I'm never genuinely bored; if I don't feel like doing anything, I would study Japanese or something, and my course keeps me busy most days...

For me I feel unhappy because I haven't built any solid relationships, I just need to be more pro-active when it comes to my social life, I just find it hard to find the kind of people that I want to be around.

I genuinely don't get depressed. I have friends and I'm studying Performing Arts in Sixth Form, some which I love doing. A girlfriend would be the only step up but that doesn't really bother me.
Musical Theatre! *jazz hands*

...what am I doing on this site...

Aggravated because of work stuff and annoyed that I suck at guitar now. But other than that I'm pretty happy. I don't have a life, but my daughter will be here in March and I can train her to do my bidding.

Yep. I'm a generally happy and grateful person, though lately it's been a little tough... I've been dealing with some anxiety/paranoia and I'm constantly reminded that my musical career isn't going anywhere.

EDIT: One thing I really have to change is that I need more ambition/passion and I need to learn how to commit to learning new things. I want to learn how to play more instruments, for starters.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.
Artists I'm listening to a lot lately:
