As summer comes to a close (or already has for some of you) you realize, OSHI- I didn't do anything I planned to do this summer.
So did you accomplish (or even set lolz) any summer goals?
Mine were to record a ton of stuff and get out more.
I recorded maybe like 5 songs (only 2 songs could be counted as legit though) and HOPEFULLY will record another within the next two weeks I have left, if I ever finish writing this song... and I got out more, thanks to destiny
Nope. I planned to get a lot better, but I hardly even touched the guitar.

I promised myself to play my guitar a lot more, but I just ended up spending most of my time on the computer.
Yeah, I actually worked out everyday and learned to sweep pick. The only summer goal I didn't complete was too find a job.

However, I find myself much more eager to play during school, and since I'm taking theory, I can see myself never letting it go until next summer.

Also, I did get into shape a bit more and have change my appearance well enough, so, I'm proud of that.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab
Gots a job, got "the girl"(just recently).
But no.
I didn't get what I wanted done. Which was mainly go to Warped Tour in Saskatoon.
Darn it.
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

Yes. Chest hair = automatic awesome. Even if you're a woman.
Failed at...
- Figuring out how to decently record with my Presonus Firebox and an SM57
- Getting myself some music theory lessons
- Getting myself into shape and going to the gym on a regular basis
- Getting myself a girlfriend (possibly linked to above)
- Getting some driving lessons out the way
- Saving money instead of wasting it on gear
- Building myself a new guitar
- Reading the texts I'm supposed to have finished before term in two weeks
- YouTubing some more guitar vids

Succeeded at...
- Teaching guitar to kids
- Improving my technique
- Working most of the summer and making some cash
- Doing some pretty big gigs and festivals
- Writing new material with my band
- Clocking up a lot of air miles
- Selling old, crappy guitars
- Doing a bit of writing in preperation for English course
- Fixing my computer
- Mastering my Canon G9

I've got to say, writing out this list has motivated me to fix some of the fails.
I planned to go camping, but that's about it...

oh yeah i promised i would learn to sweep pick and now i can

What does a girl have to do to get it in the butt thats all I ever wanted from you. Why, Ace? Why? I clean my asshole every night hoping and wishing and it never happens.
Bitches be Crazy.

I was planning on recording about 14 covers, and I only covered thunderhorse and it came out crappy.

Also a perfect backflip, I can do it with a spotter but not alone, and I still can't do it.
I've done pretty much everything really:

Get my ear pierced
Get out more (been out every other day, sometimes 3 days in a row)

the things i haven't done:
Get a job
Get money
Get pissed more often

all in all, good summer xD

Everyone is trying a comeback now. Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, Rage, and now bin Laden? Come on. Give it a rest..

get my license
get a job
get laid

all failed...but hey i have a few days left of summer to give it another try right?
My goals:

Get a tan - failed, I'm even whiter than I was at the beginning of the summer.

Get a girlfriend - I knew I wouldn't but I'd seem gay if that wasn't a goal.

Learn some new songs on guitar - All I did was forget songs I had learned a long time ago.

Do more activities with friends - failed horribly, I went to my friends house and played PSP like three times.

Gain weight/muscle - passed, I gained like 10 pounds.

Broaden my taste in music - failed, same 5 bands all summer.

See at least one good concert, passed - saw Jethro Tull

Get my permit - failed

Do summer reading - ... nobody does this.

I did, however, get a job unlike you other losers!

My summer was an absolute waste and I`m kicking myself now because of it.
Here's what the critics are saying about Hanzi_G:

Quote by SteveHouse
Hanzi_G = god damned prophet.
