    It is hard. But you are correct in that we should befriend the bad parts in life in order to understand and appreciate the good parts.
    Very wise!

    When I first read that, my reaction was "What the hell?! No way!" But then I thought I don't have other choices, all of them are inevitable.. good luck forsaken

    Because our minds perceive things in terms of comparison. It isn't even a linear comparison, but an exponential one. E.g., sound volume is measured in decibels, which represent exponentially more or less energy in a sound wave.

    Whatever we're used to is background, normal. If it's warmer than normal, it feels too hot. If it's cooler than normal it feels too cold. Good and bad are the same way.

    If things would just STAY GOOD, then you'd become used to good, and then you'd replace "good" with "normal". At which point you'd have to check your privilege when dealing with all those people for whom "bad" is "normal".
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Thank you, I needed the laugh. xD
    I get too sensitive, but that's just the NF lifestyle. It's disgusting.

    I can't bring myself to create a thread on this because a.) I don't know how to make a poll and 2.) I can't imagine anyone knows this celebrity? enough to type her

    but Amy Allan from the Dead Files? Anyone?

    My parents thought I was dying because they got home right when I failed out of rock-band hard on drums 'Pump it up' by Elvis Castillo.

    I collapsed to the floor and screamed with total outrage in full freak/nerdy gamer mode onto my brothers comforter that was on the floor and basically died. Basically.

    It was at 97 percent complete.

    I was sooooooo close.

    So then of course I played it again and they both watched me and it was so close- I was really fucking up a the end, (the only part of that song I couldnt--- at the very least carry my way through... The very very end- I mean I bet I was hitting 95% accuracy until about the last 10% of the song...

    Anyways. I finished it with 92% accuracy which is just- imo, not a percentage Im neccessarily generally happy with...

    But this song was HARD on hard for me. So-nad it was like hell YEAH second times the charm woot woot.

    And my dad said that- damn, he was even getting nervous for me at the end there- hovering in the red zone- but damn damn damn it was pretty impressive.

    I have a hard time determining my rock band level.

    For medium I end with generally between 96-100% accuracy. Probably averaging at 98 or 99. 97 or below is rare. 100 is even rarer though. I generally get 99 because Im so focused on getting 100 that I tend to miss a couple notes in the very back half of most songs.

    Hard im averaging between 85 and 99. 96+ is rare. Probably average average in the low 90s between 90-93 with 91 yeah, probably being closest to my average there.

    And I was super happy because I played a song on expert today and got 97 on it and it was fantastic and I crushed it.

    Problem is, multi- song setlists- mystery ones... I CANNOT play 'weve got the beat' because I just... Dont have the foot petal endurance. Or something. I dunno. So if I get that song then I fail and fuck up the whole set-list.

    So I need to practice just more confident and smoother fast foot pedaling I think.



    This cracks me up, this whole post with how just- wow- how serious it sounds.
