I see that you are in Australia.  Is the pump available there?

The pump is available here, but you have to wait about a year +, due to the fact that there are somany Diabetics wanting. My name was put on a couple of months ago...

I haven't posted on this for quite some time now, school has started again which has taken up most of my time but for the last 4 or 5 days or so i have been suffering from a severe chest infection including vomiting almost everyday Sad. Due to this i have had to postpone my lessons ect. which was almost more painful than the actual infection! ( Roll Eyes Shocked ) Anyway, for the last couple of weeks we have been perfecting our Waltz, Quickstep, Cha Cha and Samba for our next upcoming competition, which happens to be this saturday!there has been a long break of competitions for us over the last couple of months so can't wait to get back onto the floor. I will be using some of my new clothing (not my tailsuit as yet) so should be a good experience.

SW's blog has given me the idea to talk a little bit about occupation. To tell you the truth i actually have no idea what i want to do, i origionally was thinking of doing a law degree but have gone off the idea over the last year. I've always wanted to do something involving history but don't even know if there are any jobs excluding a history teacher. Ahhh it's all too hard...

Sorry about the chest Zac... why does that cause vomiting?  Sounds like a more generalized disorder - Ihope you've been to your doc. <<<hugs>>> for good measure Wink

Ah, what to do.  Follow your passion until it either becomes your career or you can follow it no more.  The former is of course, self solving.  The latter allows you to switch to a lesser interest without regret.  There is a sad but satisfying finality to 'I gave it my best shot'.  However, there is a danger of regret and bitterness if a passion is abandoned for reasons unrelated to opportunity or even possibility.

History? It depends on the area - anthropology research, museum curator, even politics have large history elements.  But I must agree that unless you have a passion for it, law can be an overrated career.  I thought about it once but I realized that for most (but certainly not all) areas - and really the interesting ones - day-to-day you have to deal with the dregs of society.  I was way too sensitive and I am guessing that you are too...

Good luck with the search - for many it seems to figure itself out.  I was always interested in science but I never really chose it for a career, it definitely chose me.....

I went to see my doctor yesterday. It was interesting though, i did explain to him that i had been vomiting for the last 3 days straight, though he just seemed to 'fob' it off. I'm assuming that he is only trying to treat what he can i.e the chest infection is the only symptom possible to do so. It does feel like the flu to me...

Sometimes I wonder about doctors I think they become sympton overload and don't hear everything anymore. Make sure you keep on top of it and if you are not satisfied with your progress you go back or get a second opinion.

PHEWW!! dancing has been overload this week (i actually don't think that's possible Tongue) and a comp saturday has been the reason. I've talked a lot about this so won't bore you with it again...

Thie mix between dancing, school and piano is starting to become a problem, it seems that i just don't have enough time in the day. School is picking up pace now that we are in our second week back from holidays and my music teacher is in a way pushing me to perform sometime soon (this isn't to say this is a bad thing) but with dancing every other night fitting in 1+ hours music practise and then homework/assignments ect. is becoming an organisational nightmare, this brings up my indescision in a career path once again. Piano, or music in general is one path in which i could follow, but as i have said elsewhere breaking into the music "scene" is extreamly hard, some say that for those pianists that try only the top 1% make enough money for that tobe their only job. On the other hand dance is my absolute passion and i could doit for an eternity but have heard from many that is they had the chance they would not have followed a career in dance, the way i see it no one could make a living as a dance instructor at only 1 studio unless your were the principle, now this brings up another option opening my own studio when i'm older but as everything else this requires money, which requires a well paying job...

I haven't seen the girl i like for quite some time now,  i have talked plenty to her over the internet ect. but it's just not the same. She goes to the local teenage social and is actually quite a proficiant dancer (startled me anyway), but forsome reason myparents won't allow me to go most likely due to the reasons above Roll Eyes but this leaves me with a problem, she still doesnt really know me at all, and the social could have fixed that quite easily. What do i do? I can't just ask her to the movies or anything because she barely knows me, and i can't goto the social, maybe its not ment to happen...

In a month we have an inter studio event, where the franchise studio holds a competition for only that franchise. It should be a lot of fun, and we are training very hard for it. I have been asked to be in several Pro/Am events, one being jive which i have been asked to choreograph. I haven't done much choreographing so it's a great experience, am trying to incorperate both harder and basic steps, but it is hard not to make it flat out! Other dances i''l be competing Pro/Am with are Tango, Waltz, Samba and a Lucille Waltz (New Vogue) as well as my couples events.

Does anyone have some favourite steps for jive i could 'Borrow' Wink

Ok, because i have nothing really to talk about i've decided i'm going to make this into a diary entry thing and try and post in it at least every second day,so here i go...

Wednesday, 26th of August 2009

Well, where to start... Ok, school is horrible at the moment, i have so much to do with so little time and its all just starting to build up. I go to a private school so they do expect a considerable amount and because of dancing practically every second night i have very little time if at all.Now this does bring up the question "what is more important" and though it may seem a simple answer, it's much more complicated than it looks: Dancing is a very large part of my life, i am at the moment training to be a teacher (which to me is a very big achievement as i'm only 17) and competing with DP in almost every event that arises,it is something that i hope i do for the rest of my life but would i want to do it as a career? would it eventually become a mundane job where dance became a chore rather than a love? these are questions that i myself cannot answer and i suppose only through experiencing can i understand. If i decide to follow a career in the dancing profession, either as a pro or principle owner of a studio/franchise then my schooling does not become important, schooling becomes an aspect of my life where i can cruise through and concerntrate on my dancing rather than worrying about getting perfect scores for exams, tests, ect. if i don't decide to move towards the dancing profession then what do i become? ido have musical talent in which my teacher has said that if i work towards it i could quite easily make a profession of,but do i really want to? piano has started to become a chore for me now, it is very hard for me to force myself to practice and this is mainly due to the fact that i'm doing music as a year 11 subject, does this show what will happen to my dancing? where it becomes something that must be done, do i lose interest? so many questions yet so little answers...
