I found out today that I've lost eight pounds in the past two months (I don't have a scale at home so I only get weighed at doctors offices). My goal was to actually lose 15 pounds, but it doesn't really seem doable to lose seven more. I think I'd have to starve myself, but that's not really worth it to me. I'm happy about it, but I kind of feel lost now, because it has been my goal to get where I am now for a while.   

Well done. It can be hard going to lose weight so 8lbs in two months is impressive.

My usual guitar teacher at school has had to stop teaching me because he now has to cover other lessons. The new teacher I have for lessons is quite cool, and is encouraging me to play some sort of solo for my performance piece (House Of The Rising Sun, if anybody's curious. a-hard-days-night-john-6 I have been playing the basic tab (in fact, I might post myself playing it sometime in the near future) for four months now.) My teacher wants me to bring my electric guitar (Gerald) in to practice soloing, but I'm going to have to stick to acoustic because my parents are scared about something happening to it when I'm not there. My mum has suggested I should ask to borrow one of the school's electric guitars (Squire Stratocasters) just to use in the lessons. My first lesson was last Wednesday, and my next one is on the next Wednesday (by that I mean in two days.)

Enough of my rambling, the time now is 9pm, and I'm about to start my sociology homework... paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Yay, that's really cool @SgtPeppersBulldog! paul-mccartney-thumb_gifEnthusiastic teachers are one of the best things in the world, in most cases, one can't help but being infected by their enthusiasm!

 

Something really cool happened to me today as well: I have an old turntable standing around in my room which is broken though and I also didn't have an amp or speakers or anything where the turntable's sound could come out from. So today my friend who lives in the same house as a family of audiophiles and about one hundred high-tech stereo equipments and speakers told me that they have an old turntable and two speakers they don't need anymore because they have bought better ones and I could have them. And then, believe it or not, she just gave it to me without accepting any money and now I can listen to vynils!!!! What did I do to deserve people with beautiful souls like that as my friends? I can't believe how lucky I am! beatlemaniacs_02_gifheart

So I recently got a new laptop, which was a relief as my phone was running out of storage from all my photos and music. I downloaded all the photos onto the laptop, then after checking they were definitely there I deleted them off my phone. It was only today, a week or so later, that I went on there to discover they were all gone. Turns out when I deleted them off my phone it deleted them off there too, because of icloud or some nonsense. So every photo I had (minus the few I put on social media) of my entire summer, including my prom, various holidays/trips and times with my friends, is now gone. So I'm currently wishing technology didn't exist and that we were all cavemen.

Ah, I'm sorry to hear that @QuarryMan. That sucks greatly. apple01 

In my life, went shopping today and got some nice bell-bottome-esque trousers. (I haven't worn jeans since I was about six. It's quite a big deal.) I had a feeling of 'Born in the wrong generation' when I walked in the shop and saw nothing but skinny jeans (ugh), but I managed to find some decently flared pants. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I feel you, QuarryMan. A similar thing happened to me recently. I deleted a presentation I made for a class from iCloud because I didn't realize I was deleting it from everything and not just iCloud, but that's what happened. I spent a good month on that project and it was all gone. It was honestly the worst feeling. And now I have to redo the whole thing.

I got my Fender Stratocaster, now in crayon blue, reassembled for the most part. Sadly, it won't work. I tested it out by pressing on the pole pieces with a screwdriver which is how you test to see if the electronics are working on a guitar if it doesn't have strings but got no signal. Fortunately for me, the tech at Guitar Center who recently did a modification to my guitar told me before I left that if my guitar's having any problems to bring it to him for him to check it out so I'll try to do that tomorrow.

I had such a feeling too recently! My class and I went on an exchange to Denmark and they use computers for everything they do in school. Literally everything! Also when they write exams or just make notes in classes, they don't write anything on paper anymore! Without giving my opinion on it, I find it highly unusual and really had to get used to it because in the school I go to we write everything on paper still.

Anyway, the exchange was great, one evening the girl of my host family, her boyfriend and me sang karaoke and after I had to endure lots of One Direction *sigh* we sang a few Beatles songs for me, that was lovely! (I also got to speak English all day with them, Yay!)

@AppleScruffJunior, I know how you feel now. I was just about to go to bed about an hour ago, when I heard a weird scuffling sound on wall. I looked and there was this massive spider! paul-mccartney I quickly grabbed a tissue to squash it, stared at it for about 20 seconds, and just as I was about to make my move, it fell off the wall and I have not seen it since. Thanks, spider, you're keeping me awake.... a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I'm nearly drowning in sartorial satisfaction because between my new trousers, pig shirt, and very 1970s vest/blouse, I have felt dressed to the nine-and-a-halfs for a couple of days now. a-hard-days-night-john-1

@Martha, a quick English grammar lesson for you...at your service john-lennon-salute_gif

one evening the girl of my host family, her boyfriend and me sang karaoke

Actually, *I* is correct instead of *me* in this situation. You wouldn't say "me sang" by itself. You got it right in the sentence "My class and *I* went on an exchange to Denmark..." You would say "I went" instead of "me went".

Now, if you already knew what I just wrote and just slipped up there, then a-hard-days-night-george-4 on me.

Went to the doctor's on Tuesday for a review of my medication. Seems my blood pressure is dangerously high, so all three of my medications were changed. I hate it when they raise the level on my meds because it tends to knock me out until my body's adjusted. And, to make matters worse, picked up a stinking cold (presumably in the waiting room at the doctor's as it started coming on Tuesday night, and by Wednesday morning I was more snot than man).

So, this week I have been mainly sleeping, sneezing and coughing, or blowing my nose.

Oddly enough AG, I've recently (within the last couple of years or so) noticed that Microsoft Outlook disagrees. Since I was a child it was always drilled into our heads that the phrase is "my friend and I" instead of "my friend and me". One day I typed something-or-other and "I" and Outlook suggested I change it to "me". So now, I don't know if it's just an Outlook thing or maybe both are acceptable.

Personally, I think both sound perfectly natural. Others, it drives batty. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14
