I know! I know!

Alright, I know I said I'd have that song finished and uploaded by the end of the week, and it's almost the end of the next week, so where the hell's the song? Well, I assure you, it's coming.

I haven't been as inspired lately, so things aren't going as smoothly as I'd like. I'll sit down and spend hours working on something, and in the end just decide that I don't like it or that it doesn't mix with the rest of the song. Do any other musicians out there have this problem, where if you don't finish a song in one session, it almost always ends up in a giant stash of 'unfinished works' somewhere? I'm determined to overcome this shit, but it's not going very easily =S.

I broke a string on my violin. Booo! Do you have any idea how expensive violin strings can be? I didn't.
I went to the downtown Tom Lee on Granville to buy a new set, and take a look around, and I tell the girl behind the counter what I need. And she presents my options to me. A SINGLE SET of good quality violin strings (that's four strings, two less than your standard guitar, and not nearly as long) goes for ~$90 cdn!!! I bought TWO sets of sweet-ass heavy wound guitar strings for $25 on eBay!
Anyways, needless to say, my broke ass went home and bought cheap ones (on eBay<3) for $10 =p.

The statement fire118 said

I have that all the time

I just set them aside. Wait...

Wait some more...

Wait... Then wait some more. It just takes a while then I come back to it... and I'm like... hmmm this will go well... this will go well too... ok. Done with this.

Come back to it later.

You know... Just keep coming back to it till your content with it.

You know. See. Yeah. I'm confused with what I just said. Hopefully it makes sense.
