I called Holbrook music,"the wife" answerd the the phone said she didnt know if they had any used guitars but,said they did have new ones in my price range!It must have the rod that goes down the whole neck for me to purchase it thou!I remember my last guitar,that was an issue cause the neck tends to worp,and the rod will straiten it!


Today Im have the "y" for nautillis training.Ive got to book a ride to holbrook music to see if they have a guitar used or new in my price range,I guess I should call first :)!

Shopping went pretty well except I couldnt find a few things!I dont want to think its cause of my tbi but,its said a tbi affects scaning abilities,I have to scan the eyelses when looking for something but,Im just gonna think they had no splenda!
The best thing about living on my own in My own place is now I dont get told "you cant"!

Good morning :)!Today I go to the "y" to do my nauhtelis training!I injoy working my muscules pushing them to or a little beyond thier limits :)!I feel the need to share something that has botherd me,and still dose for a long time.Its about how MMD (the girl who was on the back of my bike in MY accidnt!Her leaving me wasnt bad,its just how she did it thats bad!She used to try to drill in my head that I just want people to feel sorry for me.That hurt,I only want the respect I deserve for living with a tbi!
