Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back

Have you ever thought “Man, I feel impossibly shitty and I don’t know why”?
Run through this checklist before you do anything else.
- What have I eaten in the last 24 hours? Is it enough? If not, go and eat some food, you butt.
- Am I hydrated? If not, put some fluids in your body, fool.
- Have I slept an acceptable amount in the last 24 hours and preceeding few days? If not, do your utmost to have a nap. You need a reset, bro.
- Have I been outside/partaken in whatever form of exercise I am capable of? You’re stagnating, homie.
- Have I communicated with anyone? At all? About anything? In the last 24 hours? Sup, you’re not actually a lone wolf, and even if you’re just shouting BUTTLUMPS at someone over the intertubes, it’s better than shouting it at yourself inside your own head.
So basically: eat, drink, sleep, walk, and talk. If you still feel like emotional ass after that, start looking for more involved explanations.

I used to sing, and later on played bass also, with a band back in my awkward teenage phase (I’m allowed to say this now that I’m not a teenager anymore :p). I was just getting into rock music in general, and a band that one of my friends was starting up was looking for a vocalist, so I decided to go for it. I played three (incredibly shaky and nervous) shows with them, before one of the guitarists fell out with the other two band members and left. Following this, there was an awkward phase where nothing really happened for a long time, and what ended up happening is the drummer and guitarist rehearsing with another guy, and founding the successful punk rock trio Kerplunk, who in their prime played some little known venue called the Royal Albert Hall. Anyone who knows me/has heard me sing will know that their style was something I’d never have been able to pull off!
Although I was a little bit stung at first that these guys had been rehearsing without me, I realised that it was a bit silly - to start, I spent many weekends away from home, which really wasn’t practical. At this time, in face of all the evidence, I openly admit that I was the weakest link in that group. But that’s okay with me - it spurred me to improve musically, and in the following years that’s exactly what I did.
I’ve not been a vocalist in a band ever since - I’ve played bass in a few groups and ensembles here and there, and I play piano occasionally. I’m also more comfortable with my singing, because I know I’m just a guy with a mediocre voice who can occasionally hit the right notes, and I have no pressure to be anything more than that. I don’t know if I’ll be likely to give up my own musical freedom any time soon. I think I enjoy it too much sometimes :)
