    i just cant get to practice through a specific plan,u know it has a Sin cycle,at a point I do really well,practice a lot and it worx out but then slip down and gradually get to the worst state where my mind is totally blocked prob. bcuz i dont listen enough,play enough,etc.and this leads to a state of depression and after a while i realize it can't go on that way anymore so i get to work hard and i almost have to build everything back again.and this cycle iterates over n over..
    i guess somethings wrong with me!
    any advice?

    Loosely translated from the teen dialect into adult American English, heavyrocker said:

    "I find it difficult to focus on a practice plan. I have ups and downs in musical endeavors, in almost a sinusoidal pattern. Sometimes I feel really energetic, practice a lot, and the practice really pays off. Other times, I hit a slump, my playing deteriorates, and I feel completely uninspired to practice.

    It is a self-perpetuating cycle, because when I feel uninspired to play, I also lose interest in listening to music. Without new inspiration, my interest in practicing further decreases.

    My feelings of self-worth are tied to my musical efforts--when I don't practice and don't progress musically, I feel worthless and become depressed.

    When I do regain interest in music and start to practice again, I find that I need to expend extra effort to regain the skill level I previously possessed. Also, the cyclical nature of my problem causes me to think that this problem will continue in the future.

    I fear that this may be a serious problem. Can anyone suggest how I might get help?"

    Sound about right?

    Excellent translation!!! So, in that case, OP, look for a good counselor.

    3.i don get depressed(in that meaning) i just feel a lit sad

    I think that you should spend as much time practicing English as you would like to spend practicing.

    Your profile is not filled out so we have no idea if you're 13 and posting here with simultaneously instant messaging 5 friends while playing PS3 and chewing your toe-nails, or if you're 63 and just don't have a grasp of typing. But, I'm pretty sure this is just a modern lazy typer with lack of grammar knowledge type situation.
