    On another forum I post on, we have the "Celebrate Yourself Here" thread, where a poster can write about things that are worth celebrating in his or her life. I like the concept, so I brought it over to TB. Let's get celebratory!

    There's this girl that I like a lot, and I think she likes me too. This could go places. Another positive is that her parents LOVE me.

    Score 1 for Wicked Pissah:hyper:

    I'm doing well in school, I'm making some summer dough, I have a lot of friends.

    Uh, I'm starting a chapter of a Christian brotherhood (fraternity...) at Texas A&M. Hopefully that turns out.

    God's revealing things each and every day, I swear.

    And good job man. Keep it up.

    i won an audition, and am now playing washtub bass in KEXP's newly forming "House Band", The Dexter Street Stompers.. It's a oldtimey Jug Band. We'll performing regularly live on "The Roadhouse" show on KEXP (broadcasts in Seattle and NYC markets, as well as online) and most likely any KEXP-sponsored events (we're playing the KEXP BBQ in August, which has Dandy Warhols and Helio Squenece as headliners).

    That's the idea here.
  10. I started playing Bass again after a 15 year absence.

    I can't believe I let it go for that long - always missed it and now it feels like I have come home.

    I now have 5 Basses and a rig worthy of gigging with.
    My goal is to get back to where I once belonged and to better than I ever was. :bassist:
  11. Self praise is no praise
  12. I'm tearing up with the bass being thats 2moro it will be exactly 6 months since i got my bass!!!!!!
  13. You WREAK of awesomeness :eek:

    I make a living doing what I would do anyway as a hobby. I guess I'm blessed :hyper:
  14. playing bass i presume? :bassist:

    I'm just psyched to get my amp head tomorrow and my Avatar B212 NEO was shipped today. I ordered it today, so I wasn't expecting it to ship until late this week. I'll email for my tracking number tomorrow. :D

    Tomorrow will be a great day for me! Band practice, new amp head, tracking number, and I'll be throwing something on the grill to cap off the evening.

    I'm also pretty excited for college. Life certainly is great these days.
  16. That kind of self praise is both OK and worthy of praise marked 'other'.
    You lucky B.
  17. I wish I could play bass well enough to make a living.........Not in this lifetime :D
  18. I'm about to be 21... I've spent a year at college studying music theory, a year in Phoenix, Arizona learning how to build guitars, and the last year working for the foremost archtop guitar builder in the world.

    Now I'm about to go home, I'll be around my family (especially my new little niece :) ) and plan on going back to college. College will be awesome. And there is a possibility I will be able to work with another of the leading archtop builders while I'm home.

    Oh... and I've lost 35 pounds since Christmas and I'm in the best shape of my life. :)

    I love my family, my friends, and the fact that I get to make my living as a bass player. That's a lot to celebrate.

    I'm going to graduate college next year with a degree in business management, I'm going into the year as president of the marketing club, marketing director of the investment fund, student government justice, have a great girlfriend, a great motorcycle, great family, and have an awesome internship in marketing right now.

    Only caveat? Debt.
