    After contemplating getting a specific instrument that I was lusting for a few weeks and decided to sell two guitars I don't want to sell to cover the cost, I decided to go for it.
    Last Monday was a bank holiday and the seller's dad was going to ship the guitar with thr Royal Mail courier, Parcelforce, with their 48h service. I get a notification on Wednesday that send the guitar is dispatched but he doesn't the tracking number and I'm waiting for it on Friday thinkingvI'll get it before the weekend to enjoy it. The guitar never arrived and I ask for the tracking number to see where it is. Turns out the guitar was collected on Thursday and as the seller didn't pay the extra amount for a Saturday delivery, I'm hoping the guitar arrive today before 13:00, as I'll be at work and my wife will be out. So most probably I'll get it tomorrow :(.

    And of course I can't edit or delete one of the double posts now that I'm on a computer. That will teach me to try and comment on an out dated android phone. Oh wait, here's another first world problem :D!

    marcwormjim, that sounds like a really hard stool to pass. I feel for you man!

    People keep offering me free home-cooked food, and it's mildly interrupting my intentionally thought-out diet.

    No one I know face-to-face ever wants to talk about the shitty music I like.

    Are you long-winded in real life, or something?

    There is a clean tone I love stored on my HD Pro but I only use my Kemper to record rhythms/solos.
    Having to use both for recording, when they are not both at my home, is inconvenient.

    I live on a beach town, pretty cool place but I was struggling to work. Found a new full time job to work on an island resort, like an amazing tourist destination, with pretty low rent, great pay, and basically wont be using my car at all (only if I want to get out on a weekend on main land), plus 0 bills either, except for my phone.

    Im complaining as I wont have a beach to surf anymore.

    .....but also as I cant take my dog. I share her with my ex already as it was our dog, so shes gonna look after her, but still


    my friends are all jealous and lik e"OMG lucky youuu to get to live thereeeee" Im like "meh"... aslo beacuse I already lived 2-3 years on a small tourist town before while I was studying and believe me you get tired of it sooooooo quick. Great for a couple of months but you can go crazy if you stay there for a long time. Also I guess with a full time job would be eassier

    dont get me wrong I know how amazing it would be and Im doing it to save money for 1-2 years, but Im not as excited as I should. Mostly because i didnt wanted to move out from here..... I had a nice little cheap place close to everything, my dog, great beaches and camping spots, finally made a great group of friends, ect, ect, I jsut needed a steady income.... oh well
