    Hey starting new,

    How have you been? I’ve been doing alright, I hope you’re doing alright. Within the last 5ish months iv been in and out of a relationship and started a new one. Schools going well,we got a new music teacher today which is great. I started making wands and selling them which is fun. I made almost $70 from cans and bottles yesterday.

    Hey starting new.

    Don't worry, i have shocking spelling too. Especially at 10:44 at night. Yeah a lot of things have been going well. But there are always big annoyances. What sort of bumps? You dont have to tell. But just so you know, in year six i was a peer mediator, so i had to deal with everybodys problems. But yeah. Its great to hear from you. You shouldve seen my face when i saw there were more replies here, it had a smile nearly as big as when i see my girlfriend texted me. Anyway, i ahould probably sleep, because school. Thanks again for the replies.

    From Padfoot.

    Hi Padfoot

    Do you want to talk about what annoying you atm? Perhaps i could help..

    When i was in yr 6 i was almost a peer mediator and also a support person ( if someone needed some extra support they could call me out of class for a while) when i hit yr 10,11 and 12 i volunterred to do the same thing. Was quite good. Mostly just the normal stuff but harder things to deal with as well. I didnt mind though.

    Oh my bumps are mostly just trying to find the right sevices and hitting dead ends as well as trying to deal with chronic pain and a new injury. Life like to come and go with a bang doesnt it.

    Hey starting new

    im alright for talking about what’s annoying me, as not much annoys me anymore. Sounds like fun having an injury, you’ll be ok though. I hope you get better soon.

    There is one thing that’s making me nervous atm. I do cadets right, and I’m thinking about asking the major (the person who looks after us) if I can go on to become a corporal. Which being corporal is nerve racking enough, but the fact that I’m gonna ask him is making it worse. But I’ll be fine. So what’s been going on in your life? Anything exciting?

    As always thanks for the replies.

    From Padfoot.

    That does sound pretty nerve wracking. If you think your ready thrn go ahead and ask. Whats the worst thatll happen he/she says no i dont think your ready. If they say that you can always ask why so that you can work towards that.

    Nah nothing exciting here. Still same old same old. One foot in front of the other really.

    Anythinf planned for the weekend? You also welcome to chat on the unde 25s thread too in the social spaces. Theres other young members there too

    Hey startingnew.

    Long time no speak. Sorry about that. School and what not.

    So, if you remember from the last time i was on here, i said i was going to ask te cadet major to be promoted to corcoral. I never did it. But at the last cadet night i just went to I was offered to go on the course to be promoted.

    Anyway, how've you been? I hope you healed from your injury. What's been happening in your life since we last talked?

    I can't wait to here from you.

    As always, from Padfoot.

    I feel the same, so alone. No one understands and whenever someone realises I am not a quick fix it comes across like I'm a burden.

    Hey Imogen,

    First thing I'm gonna say is welcome. This thread is pretty empty except me. And don't feel like a burden here, I've got all the time in the world. We're all mates here. No one is really a quick fix, I've been working on it for nearly 17 years (all my life) and that's fine. I hope you feel comfortable here. I'm always up for a chat about anything.

    From Padfoot.

    How is everyone?

    Hope you've all been well.

    Hi, dragon!!

    It's great to hear from you again. I'm still here. I'm doing alright. Year 12 is a pain in my ass along with heaps of other shit that's been happening in my life progressively worse. But ah well, she'll be right.

    How have you been? What's new in your life?

    Padfoot.

    Hey Padfoot! I wish I had replied sooner, I hope you still get this.

    Wow in year 12 now! How is it? How are you? What has been happening in your life lately? I hope you've been well.

    I've had an intense last two years. I was overmedicated by my psychiatrist for about a year on multiple medications that I had to get myself off. I fell out with my family, my boyfriend, stopped working, had no money, moved out of home, got into scary situations and pretty much felt like I lost who I was. My mum practically rescued me and took me home to live with her. I spent the next 8 months coming off medications I should never have been prescribed in the first place. I began working again, talking to my family, reconnecting with my partner, exercising and trying to feel like myself again.

    I don't feel the same as I did before this all happened but I suppose it would be hard to go back to feeling completely myself because I've been through something that all in all has changed me as a person.

    I learnt a lot about myself and I've become really close with my mum. I'm forever grateful to her for helping me.

    But enough about me! Tell me how you are going?

    Hi Dragon :D

    I'm glad to hear from you again, it sounds like you've been through a lot since last time. I have too.

    Since the last time I started planning out an album I'm going to write, which is a lot of fun. I've got two songs written for it. I've gotten a new girlfriend and we've been dating for almost 2 months. I broke one of my guitars and am fixing it today. I also bought a new one XD. I've started listening to a lot of My Chemical Romance as well. My sister moved out of the house so I took her room for my studio .

    Life has been all over the place tbh, but oh well. It's good to hear from you again. Can't wait to see your response.

    Well, my band and I are all really into punk rock, so we're going to write that style of music. The song I'm working on right now is kind of like Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day minus the electric guitar. My year 12 subjects are chemistry, Music, Catholic Studies, Art, Maths and English.

    Music is hard, I've had ups and downs with songwriting. The one I'm working on right now I managed to write in 20 minutes (I didn't even mean to) but the other one is a work in progress after about 2 months already.

    You should try learning an instrument, whether it's guitar od singing, it'd possibly help with whatever's happening in your life. I know playing guitar has helped me a lot.

    And if you'd like a playlist with a heap of really good MCR songs I have one I could give you. :)
