    How are you feeling?

    I'm feeling... unsure, I guess. Doubting myself. Wondering if I'm just a talentless hack; feeling like I'm not a good enough guitarist and/or songwriter to deserve the following I've gained on SoundCloud in last, what'll be now? 5 years... I still feel most of that was a fluke, and that I'm in...

    How are you feeling?

    This wouldn't be referring to me by any chance, would it? 😏 😆😄😁 Anyway, I'm still not back to full health – still got an irritating cough. 🤧 But I'm trying to get on with things despite it. So, I'm feeling a lot better than I was a few weeks ago. It wasn't great being pretty bedridden and not...

    How is your summer?

    I've not been up to much, really. Mainly tidying out my room a bit more, whilist I get my music recording setup sorted. And I'm going to see about getting the old TV aerial in my bedroom upgraded.

    How are you feeling?

    I agree that we definitely need to play our part when it comes taking care of the environment. I don't smoke, and was never interested in taking up the habit. Even when I was a teenager, and everyone I knew was doing it. But then I've never really been one for doing something just because...

    How are you feeling?

    Thank you, lily. :) We're currently experiencing a bit of heatwave here in Scotland, and over the UK as a whole; so it's too hot to do much, if anything, at the moment.

    How are you feeling?

    It's feels weird, vindicating and yet incredibly frustrating to have an observation that you've said about certain a member of yer family for years – though not to that person's face – pointed out by someone who isn't a blood relative. I kinda wish one of my secondary school English teachers...

    How are you feeling?

    I know I deserve better. So does my mother... I just wishing my sisters would realise that as well. The oldest went and guilt tripped me in order to get me out the house, because I seemed in bit of a mood; when I was merely focusing more on the task I was doing for myself – which is apparently...

    How are you feeling?

    I'm not feeling too well. I've got a sore throat and I hurt the side of my right foot, but I've been resting up and am slowly getting better.

    How are you feeling?

    Still dwelling on what happened the other day. Wondering how my mother seems less bothered by it than I am. Wishing that things were different than they are with my family. But sadly I don't think things will ever change for the better. Not now... I doubt my sisters have the maturity required...

    Trust?

    Yeah... big time. Trust and self-doubt are massive issues for me. So, I can very much relate to all of what you described, sadly. Especially the questioning other people's motives, as well my own instincts. But then I had quite a dysfunctional family environment where I was conditioned to...

    How are you feeling?

    Basically, the short of it is: I'm tired of being an emotional shock absorber. Tired of always being the one that has to begrudgingly pick up the pieces. Tired of being the example I never had growing up.

    How are you feeling?

    How am I feeling? Well... It's hard to say, really. Ah mean, I'm experiencing multiple feelings at the moment. None of them positive. Angry. Depressed. Miserable. Unhappy. Troubled. Alone. Just processing the usual, upsetting dysfunctional, toxic family BS that I've been conditioned to...

    How are you feeling?

    I'm feeling pretty good, all things considered. I had a good night out last night. My oldest sister and I went and saw Kings of Leon in Glasgow. Best concert we've attended in a long time, despite the concert having to be stopped twice, briefly, because drunken fights broke out in the crowd...

    Graeme's Wee Mad Mental Music Thread

    That's very true. Those high school memories were just the first thing that came to my mind when my sister said she'd get a busking permit. But I will look ahead and start preparing for it and have a think about putting together so sort of setlist. And before all that, I'll go to one of those...

    Graeme's Wee Mad Mental Music Thread

    I know. Even though I don't really brag about it much. 😊 Mind you, I probably should. 😆🤣😁 And I realised these are really great opportunities for me. I'm just in 2 minds as to what I should do. 🤔 As far as: should I just noodling about, improvise and let whatever the first guitar riff or...

    How are you feeling?

    Also, I'm not as nervous as I should be. Y'know, considering that yesterday, - not long before I posted in this thread - while out for a car ride around town, my oldest sister gave me a challenge that: in a year's time - August 2023 - I've to go busking on the streets of Edinburgh during that...

    Graeme's Wee Mad Mental Music Thread

    So, about a day ago - or it might be a couple of days now. at the time o' me writing this - my oldest sister mentions to me that this coffee shop in Kettleholm is going to start doing open-mic nights every Thursday from 5 pm to 7 pm. Kettleholm is another wee village in the Scottish Borders...

    How are you feeling?

    Quite chuffed, actually. My brother-in-law helped me in assembling a couple of kallax units today. Must've got them done in less than an hour. Though, I wasn't really keeping track o' time. But we got them assembled together quickly, anyway. So, that's me now got more storage space for my...
