Tired of this country!! (Belgium)

People are so unfriendly and so bussy with theirself.

I work in a store... So being polite and helpfull is something I do every day and even when I'm not working I'll continue doing that.

Always wanted to move to Scotland or Wales. Been on vacation there and the people are all so warm and polite.

Or most of them...

Anyway, nature is so amazing!! So many castles to visit :)

Over here it's all buildings and buildings and more buildings. Not much nature anymore :(

And when I smile to a stranger I pass on the street they look scared or angry. Like I'm going to rob them or so.

I just really want to pack my bags and leave!! But life is not that simple.

You have to find a job in the other country, learn the language perfectly, buy or hire a house or whatever you like.

And my mom wouldn't survive it if I just went to another country.

Tried to focus my thoughts on something else today.

Downloaded Sonar X2 and tried to get something out of it but I allmost threw my laptop out of the window.

My guitar playing still sucks so I thought that with a music program I could make something that looked like music.

But it's just to complicated for my small brain to understand.

Maybe someone can advise me a program that isn't to dificult? Or is that non existing?

Hey V,..... try Magix Music Maker. You will have to get some additional sound pools for it, to have a wide range of instruments or sounds, but I have found this is the easiest to get started (at least for me) It has A LOT of sophisticated deeper stuff you can do with it too, but I take that part slow. It's more "Drag and Drop" for the sounds than many of the other programs....Good to see you got a blog, I'm to ADHD to keep one up, it's bad enough fighting to keep focused, reading or writing one lyric, a blog would make my head explode if I tried that! Someday I'm going to Scotland, my best friend has been there 3 times.

Thanks for the suggestion!!
Allready have it since yesterday. A friend of mine told me the same as you ;)
It is indeed easyer to get started. Made a spooky kind of melody. Nothing good but it's a start!
I'll get there one day hahaha. 

A blog full of nonsense I have :D And there will follow a lot more of nonsense of me I'm sure :)
Maybe a blog isn't such a bad idea. Get all of your thoughts out ;) It could help you focus. (I could be wrong)
I have a boyfriend with ADHD. A hell sometimes to live with but I'm getting used to it by now.
Just have to tell him everything 6 times before he does it or remembers it :P
And a lot of notes to remember him of things if I'm working.

You really must go to Scotland!! I really really want to go back.
But next year no vacation for me. Lots of stuf to renovate in the apartment so I need to save some money. 3 days Londen is all I can afford right now :P
Ireland will be my next vacation (I hope).
Anyway thanks for the respond!!!

lol...That's funny! I think that's why my two marriages didn't work out, I was too frustrating. It's not that we have terrible memories (ADHD's) it's that we got so many things going through our mind at once, it's hard to stop, take a breath and focus.......ok, and sometimes we forget :).....That's why I have a problem critiquing more in depth, I lose my train of thought to quick. Some days I can write more detailed than others, depending on my episodes. Yea, the two songs I have in the music section were done on Magix Music Maker. They are not that good but I put them up anyway. Still learning it. It's gets easier as you play with the features more. You should pick it up easier than my hyper; gray haired old ass did. :)

I don't have ADHD but I do have concentrating problems.
Never studied for anything. Still got my degree. I really want my driver license but I just can't focus more than 10 minutes on the theory :( 
The only thing I'm focused in is writing. My thoughts are a real mess sometimes :P
So I know a little but how you feel. I just don't know all the technical stuff to give some really good critique or I just can't find the right words. Frustrating!

Can you give me the link of your songs here?
Curious about it!! 
You think it should be easier for me but I don't know.
Been bussy with it the whole day yesterday (time flew by).
One day I'll compose a masterpiece with it!! You'll see/hear :P

Man that is a good start! I would repeat that part at the end of that clip, and add an ambient background. I like the forlorn feel to that.

Going to take ages to make this something good, but I'll get there :P

It won't take as long as you think to learn. Within 3 months. I was making cool sounds. Also I went to Youtube and watched some tutorials, that might help you too.

Some of those tutorial will open up a whole new can of worms for you on how to put things together. I found some of them a huge help in understanding the program...of course I'm one impatient Mo Fo.

Come to Michigan.  The climate is similar and so long as you don't work in upper middle class areas they tend to be very friendly and compassionate.

Try chordpulselite. You can download it for free and play around. Basically it makes backing tracks in a variety of styles from ballad to dance to reggae etc. Easy and quick to put some sound behind you.
