Hi Jocelyn, I know what you mean. Come in and sit down.

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 05:51 PM

Sure, come on in. :) *hugs Jocelyn*

I need a break from reality too... sick of struggling. :(

*needs a hug*

*offers everyone ridiculously large duvet to snuggle under*

I'm a musician as well. :) What do you do?

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 05:58 PM

I play violin (since I was 9), piano (since I was 6), and viola (since I was 15). I'm planning on buying a cello once we have enough money and teaching myself, as I LOVE how cello sounds. Then, eventually, a bass, so I can learn the entire string family. :)

I miss my piano though. It's at my parents' house - this apartment is way too small for it. :( But someday I will have it transported to where we live - somehow - it's ancient, over a century old and very beautiful (carved wood, etc.). And we got it for free way back when I was 6!! :D

Anyway. I remember being IP for ECT this last March and playing piano for some friends. That was fun and lightened the mood of the place a bit. :)

*sigh*

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 06:01 PM

Coolness. :) I sing, and I'm teaching myself guitar, bass and piano. :D you're too talented. :P

*offers hug*

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 06:03 PM

*hugs back*

Bass as in string bass, or bass guitar? Sorry, really don't know much about guitar. Hubby wanted to learn it but hasn't really put forth the effort. Anyway, he's tone deaf... haha. :P

Thanks for the compliment. I really don't think I'm talented, or intelligent, or anything good. :(

*hides under duvet*

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 06:16 PM

Bass guitar. The guitar for lazy people XD Although I did try and learn cello for a bit... Epic fail >.<

And you are talented and intelligent. It's just your mind telling you silly things.... did that make sense? I dunno, did in my mind.

*gives pillow*

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 06:40 PM

Yeh, it made sense. Thanks for being so kind. :) I'd like to hear you sing sometime, bet you have a good voice. I've been told that I do, been a worship leader at an old church, but that was only because there wasn't anyone else to do the job. Lol. But I really don't know if I can sing well or not. :-/

*takes pillow gratefully... and whacks you over the head with it* :D

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 06:45 PM

*falls over with shock* XD Meanie! *tackle, pins down*

Well, my band are gonna start recording soon, and I do randomly have a tendancy post things on Youtube o.O SO next time I post something worth watching, I'll send it to ya. :P The onky vid of me singing right now was when I was hyper and bored and sounded crap. xP

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 06:48 PM

Oh neat, you're in a band. :) I'd love to see a clip, so feel free to PM me the link the next time you have one up. :)

Yep, I'm a meanie alright... :D

*clobbers you with a slipper* :P

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 07:01 PM

I will :) We haven't really got a name yet, Some of us want Assaut On The Dawn, SOme want Lava Lake and I want Llama lake XD

*squeaks and rolls off, throws teddy at*

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 07:19 PM

Ooh a teddy!!

I like Assault on the Dawn... but I gotta admit, Llama Lake has a ring to it!! :P

Urgh don't feel good. My dad just invited me to have lunch with him and my sister... don't wanna go but I know I need lunch... but I know that I'm going to want to purge after I eat. Frick it all. :(

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 07:24 PM

:( *jumps on* Why don't you just eat a small amount for now? Tell your dad you're not feeling great, and eat enough to keep you going for a bit. You're not fat, and you won't get fat.

*LickFace* :) You'll be fine.

SoMuchMore 18-12-2009 08:29 PM

*runs in throwing pillows and confetti and hands out holiday cookies*

I'm finally done with final exams! Time to celebrate.. Thought I would include the ward in my party lol.

Hope everyone is alright!
*hugs everyone in sight* (oops i rhymed :-P)

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 08:32 PM

*squeals and huggles back*

How did they go? Do you think you did good? WHat were they on?

*chomps down on cookie* :D

SoMuchMore 18-12-2009 08:58 PM

They weren't as awful as I thought they would be... but I absolutely hate studying so this week has been quite long until now lol.
They were over geology (ew), research methods in psychology, and legal issues in mass communication.
Not the most fun of all semesters.. hopefully, my classes will be more fun in spring semester.

Absynnthe 18-12-2009 09:35 PM

Good times. :D

Studying = Boo. ;[

But End of Exams = Whoop!

*throws spare confetti and cookie crumbs over*

Scarletdreamer 18-12-2009 10:54 PM

Yey for end of exams. I finished my last one yesterday morning. :) I took research methods (for psych) in fall 2007 I think. It wasn't my favorite class either... and as a counseling track major, I had to take research methods II in spring 2008. And do a huge group presentation that we worked on all semester!! Eugh. Bad memories, heh.

DV, thanks for the support. I am fat, or at least, I feel fat, and I haven't seen my nutritionist in quite awhile. I see him next Wednesday and I'm nervous. :( I ate a small bit, my only real meal of the day (silly me) and I am working on drinking some Vitamin Water ♥ but today's really been a crappy day as far as drinking enough and eating enough. I hope all of break isn't like this. :(

*celebrates with Laura* :D

*hugs everyone*

Absynnthe 19-12-2009 12:34 AM

Call me Franz :P

And how about seeing a personal trainer instead of a nutritionist? That way you can have a part nutritionalist part exercise helper. It helps me alot with how I feel about myself. :) Or you can have both. :O

Vitamin water is nice. :) Better than what I'm being forced down me. >.> Stupid vitamin pills....

Scarletdreamer 19-12-2009 01:14 AM

Yey Franz!! lol. Nice to have something besides initials to call you. :P

I actually have a personal trainer, but he lives 1200 miles away. It's going to work out though!! because he and I are both determined that I am going to lose XXlbs in 6 months. I just need to get the full regimen down so I can do it and get losing weight. I've actually been wondering if I should just terminate my care at the nutritionist's that I see and go with my trainer. Dunno though... I don't think that my treatment team would really agree. Haha.

I recently switched from being a lacto-ovo vegetarian to eating fish as well, so that additional protein without carbs really should help bump up my metabolism - which is pretty crappily low. Or was, anyway. My N kept telling me to eat more and exercise less... like that makes a lot of sense. People online are telling me to follow my N's plans, not my PT's... but my N's stuff hasn't worked very well in years and my PT might have a little more knowledge when it comes to losing weight. Sooo... I'm not sure what to do. *waffles*

Eugh vitamin pills. I prefer getting my vitamins through things like Propel and Vitamin Water. Just bought a flat of 12 Propels the other day. I asked for a flat of VW for Christmas... haha... since it might come from a store that I can't go to as I don't have a member's card (elitist... lol). I don't know, though.

I just ate supper and am still "hungry" - stupid body. It's so fricking messed up!! :( I also want to purge and can see myself doing it... really really want to... but that's nothing new. It's an ongoing struggle and I really need to just QUIT IT. :(
