    Default What happens in your life - Come in and share!

    I got the idea for this thread from another forum, where it has over 19,000 replies and is still growing. (Admittedly, the other board is significantly bigger than TC.) In this thread, people can share all the happenings of their life that they feel like sharing, be they good or bad, big or small, without the guilt of being an attention-horse. The only rule (which is really more like a "guideline"--there are no rules in music) is that your description of happenings must be kept succinct.

    To begin: I drove into town (fifty miles each way) today to rent a cello outfit. It was supposed to include a new 4/4 student's cello, bow, rosin, and case. When I got home and opened the case, however, there was everything but the bow. I am now drowning my sorrows (and embarrassment) with Merlot, Tchaikovsky, and Camembert.

    Well I've currently been very busy which is fine with me but sadly I haven't had much time on TC. I've had to spend much of the little free time that I have improving my insrumental skills consequently giving me less time on TC. But less hectic times are ahead and hopefully I can be a regular poster soon.

    Finally a thread that is unashamed about this topic. Good idea Kopa. Pleased to hear you were so gung ho about cello that you went and did that, that's a really lame happening, in a better world you would have been rewarded more immediately for your enthusiasm, but things are complicated.

    Rule noted.

    Community college is going okay, I feel ridiculous for struggling to keep up in my sole class, the homework challenge is ever present and at the forefront. Went cold turkey on my medication five days ago(physical symptoms dizziness, mental symptoms, heightened anxiety, probably as a result from the pressure to stay on more than withdrawals). Cried less than an hour ago after getting a hug from my mom after arguing with her about it, I don't usually get that, not to be sentimental, its just true. Still don't want to take them, but I'm not irrationally obstinate if I start feeling really bad.

    Edit, P.S., listened to all the Elliot Carter string quartets today and feel I need to do it again another day.

    As much as I would like to express what is happening - I think it dear impossible, my brain encrypts all my memories of things so that I cant recall them when I need to, like right now.
    Life really isn't a Beethoven's 5th "I conquered the world and defeated my fears by going from C minor to C major", it's really about compassion towards yourself.

    In this sense, the simple acceptance and honesty at the end of the Grosse Fugue (after the greatest expression of human suffering)... is quite an artistic achievement.

    I'm very depressed right now, I don't know what to do with my career (physics), I don't have enthusiasm anymore, I'm tired. I'm dissapointed with my piano pieces (they have cost me a real effort and they are sh*it), my room is a complete chaos (reflecting the chaos in my mind). I want to throw away all the physics and all the piano, I don't know what I want. I'm in a very anxious state. Also I'm tired to be alone, isolation that I made for myself.

    i hear you man... the best way to lose your passion for physics is studying it. unless you're some kind of whiz kid or something.

    indeed, it's very odd, but now that I can see the full view (at least in theoretical physics), I don't know what to do. When I was studying general relativity, my pasion, I was very exited, but now that I have the knowledge, I'm bored, I don't see the rest of my life dedicated to this... I hope that this will be a temporary situation.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I know how it is when you are really passionate about something and you aren't succeeding in it as you would like to.

    My poor old dog was staggering on his walk today, I feel very bad for him.

    Im at work. Not in the mood and have a headache, plus I got back into the country at the airport only a few hours ago this morning.
    At least the work is in a comfortable office, with a computer and is interesting enough - plus a decent pay!

    I'm at home today. That's the glory of self-employment: yesterday, full craziness as a contract court reporter in federal court in a jury trial, today, no calls for work, so I'm sitting by the phone like a teenage girl after a date hoping it will ring. Tomorrow I'll be somewhere doing something; I won't know until 5:00 tonight.

    Been a busy 2 weeks. I moved into a new co-working space downtown. I'm a videographer and the co-working space is filled with other creative types, like graphics designers, photographers and such, so it's nice and stimulating.

    My sister and brother-in-law are coming to visit for the weekend. We have a huge Mardi Gras celebration here this weekend, so it should be fun.
