  1. i just turned 18 a few minutes back!and i wish to take it as an important milestone in my life... but the reason why am posting this is i want to know did you guys made any commitments to yourselves when you turned 18?
    i somehow want to form a fixed time everyday practice routine for my self something which i have never been able to do in the past? i would be glad if you share your music practice routine....

    Don't know what liberties you get when you turn 18 there... here we can vote, buy cigarettes, and lottery tickets.

    21... we can drink, gamble, and buy guns.

    A routine for what? A routine for how to pass your day. Keep in mind that how you spend your day, will be drastically different 5 years from now even more different 10 years from now. So it's a little hard set that up right now.

    I'm not sure how your government works compared to ours, but if it's something that involves your voting, it's your duty to educate yourself on what your voting for beyond the propaganda and rhetoric you see on TV.

    If it matters, I celebrated 18 by buying cigarettes even though I don't smoke. Jerk at the counter didn't even card me.

    Birthdays just aren't exciting anymore. For my 21st I'm gonna buy a 6 pack of good beer and have a couple with friends.

    That leaves two beers per person. :eyebrow: Better make it a twelver just to be safe. It better to be in a situation with too much beer than not enough beer. :)
     
  13. pretty much the same around here


    yeah but the whole political scenario goes over my head and seems purposeless anyway am educating my self on this issue also because its an often debated issue in my undergraduate journalism course
    yeah 12 is better than 6 and i started liking cigars over cigarettes a while back (1.i cant easily find the fine ones 2. they are more expensive hence am less likely to get addicted to smoking coz i gotta save money to buy gear!!:bassist:)

    at 18? Any spare moment of my life was spent with a bass in my hand... fixed time was all the time.

    Alright you want some serious life advice. Identify your pursuits. Establish a discipline that can be a peace of mind for you later in life. For instance, we're all bass players. Playing bass is a discipline. A discipline is necessary when you come home from a horrible day at work, or when life just seems to be plodding along in a rut. A discipline provides your mind a healthy stress release. The goal of life is to combine your discipline, that study which brings you pleasure, with a sustainable way to support yourself and potential family. Sounds simple right? Many of us spend our whole lives in this pursuit. :)
