All These Bad Times I'm Going Through, Just Dance!

Mood: Elated

Music: We're Dancing by PYT

I realised today that there is only one thing that can turn my mood around in an instant. That can take me from the lowest low to the highest high. That can actually take me to a different world where everything is perfect. Dance. After such a dull disappointing day, which left me in a terrible mood, I was not keen to go or be anywhere. Dragging myself up out of my wallowing state, a pottered off to dance rehearsals this evening. Within a minute of getting up and dancing I was on top of the world! It is truly an amazing feeling. It's like nothing else exists except you and the music; that feeling you get like nothing else matters except what you are doing in that instant.

I really don't know what I would do without dance in my life. It keeps me going when everything is wrong. It wakes me up, even when I don't want to get out of bed and it puts me to sleep with a smile on my face. While I may not ever make it to the top or have professional work, I will never, ever stop dancing. I used to think that there would be no point in dancing if I couldn't get into WAAPA or get a job; now I know that I will ALWAYS dance. Whether it's just at a local dance academy or in a top paying professional company - it doesn't matter, as long as I'm still doing it. I have really found my one true love.

Good night and sweet dreams from a love struck dancer!

Go Ahead, Drive Me Insane Why Don't You?

Mood: Frustrated

Music: Hot 'n' Cold by Katy Perry

Any member of the female species would be able to agree with me when I say: boys are SO stupid. And frustrating, infuriating, upsetting, confusing; need I go on? I seriously think I'm going to go bald, considering the amount of hair I have been tearing out in utter frustration this week. Can you believe that guys have the audacity to call us confusing? I think they need to have a good hard look at themselves before making those kind of accusations. They're all gooey and sweet one moment, then BAM, they shrug us off like we're some unwanted fly! Then they play dumb like they have no idea what we are on about - "What is it? Have I done something wrong?"

Personal experience does not just tell me this. Having seen many of my girlfriends whine and cringe at the male species, I have gathered that my opinion is the general consensus. You may be thinking "But my guy is perfect!" Oh how wrong you are. Think back; I'm guessing you will be able to recall a time where you wanted to strangle the hell out of him huh? Bet you can remember a time where he was so hot and cold that you thought he had an inbuilt thermostat that was going haywire, hmm? Oh, but I don't think it's just boyfriends either; dads, husbands, grandfathers, little brothers, friends or the in betweens - they are all the same. You might be thinking "How would you know? You're only 17!" This is a fair comment, though I beg to differ. You see, I have to deal with the worst strain of male: the 21st century teenage boy. Very common in all parts of the world, this type of male is particularly confusing and takes joy in breaking the hearts of it's female counterpart, the teenage girl. Vicious and completely jerky in nature, these guys will rip you to shreds with their razor sharp remarks and contradicting actions.

Now, being the fairly intelligent young woman that I am, I realised I would have to come up with a solution for myself, and fast. My thoughts led me to only one plausible and simple solution: move to Germany and become a nun. I hear the weathers fantastic over there.

To all those girls out there with boy complications: Hang on in there and don't fret; you can always come and join my nunnery!
