I'm struggling on which bass instruction book to buy. I'm torn between this one, which is sort of a "learn to play in # weeks" sort of book, and it sounds really useful. This one, which sounds really good but I think it might go into too much theory for me. The reviews are really good though. And then there's this one, which seems perfect for what I want it for, but it's got some bad reviews, and it's only 40 pages long.

Erm, so I think I've narrowed it down to the first two. I don't know~ Maybe I should just go for the cheaper option? But then the other book is more comprehensive. But then, I'm not sure I want to be reading so much ABOUT the bass, I just want to play. For now. I think I'll get the crash course one~

Okay, now I need to get my Amazon bill up to £15 so I get free delivery. XD I still have a text book I need to buy. Although, I've ordered it from the library, but haven't had time to pick it up yet. I'll be getting it tomorrow~ I want to see what it's like before I buy it. I won't be able to get it from the library during exam time, so I'll probably end up buying it. :/ Ugh, it hurts to just blow away £40.

While I'm sort of talking about uni, did I mention I have two presentations to do? One group and one individual. I don't mind doing them if I'm part of a group, but an individual one? I might just faint in front of the class. D: I'm seriously dreading it. I get so nervous talking in front of people. I know most people don't enjoy it, but I'm sure I suffer more than the average person. I hate being the centre of attention (I realise I'm writing this in a blog which I know people read.. sometimes :P). I have to talk about Doctor Who as well. The class already think I'm a huge geek for even mentioning it. ._. I guess I can console myself with the fact that most, if not all the class won't be interested in what I'm saying anyway. It's just our tutor I need to impress really.. Although she's making everyone ask questions after each presentation (like a 'question time' sort of thing). Ugh I won't know what to say at all! Hopefully people will be nice and ask me easy questions. Mew. ;~;

I met Danny and Dougie today~! *spazz* Holy hell I had so much fun. XD They're so gorgeous! ♥

So, went into Liverpool for my uni induction at 11:00. We just went through a few of the things we'll be doing at level 3 and how 'we need to get our shit together'. T_T Oh right, thanks. Caught up with the other girls, apparently most people barely got by with passes for a lot of modules. Makes me feel like I did well. ^^;

Anyway, after that, Vince picked me up from Dean Walters and took us to Manchester for about 13:00. We parked near the shopping centre, then found our way in. After walking around and around, we found Zavvi. We got all confused because there was no queue anywhere~ (This was my first signing btw.) So we walked in, still couldn't find any mcflyers. Saw this Zavvi guy guarding a red rope to downstairs, so I asked him if that was where the signing was. He said yes, so I asked if there were many people, and he was all, 'um, you do know the queue is all the way round the back of the building?'. XD; So we walked out another Zavvi entrance, round one side of the shopping centre, and then finally spotted the big, long line.

We spoke to a few girls while waiting~ They were so nice! (I fail because I never even asked if any of them had LJs.) I was SO nervous all the time though. XD; We only queued for about three hours before we were let through the special red rope in the store. We then queued downstairs opposite where the boys were. Zavvi were playing Beatles music in the basement which is always good. :3

We finally made it to the table~ I got all three of my Lies singles signed. :D I high-fived Danny. XD Tried to high-five Dougie but he got all confused when I put my hand up to him (even though I said "high-five, Dougie?!" And yes he was looking at me ^^;). He sort of bent his fingers on my hand, so I just took his hand and shook it instead. No idea wtf he was doing. XD He's so bloody good looking! His hands are tiiiny too~ They were both a little quiet, but they were lovely and made eye contact with you and said hello etc. Eeeee I touched them! 8D; *spazzzz*

PICTURES!Collapse )

Okay, looking at these pictures is making me so excited for the Liverpool signing. Maybe I'll think of something to say to them instead of just "hello *__*" Anyway, off to watch 8 out of 10 cats~ EDIT: which Danny is on wtfwtf! XD oh god the Rod Stewart story again. ahaha ♥

EDIT2: I can play the intro to Only In Dreams (Weezer)! *__* Shut up bass players, don't tell me it's easy. XD My fingers are on fiyaaa. Don't know if this 'teach myself' thing is going to work though. Mcfly songs are too fast for me right now D: And um.. Queen I can't even touch..
