And you may be thinking well you finally got off your arse and did something, but in all honesty I was trying. I was trying to complete things on my list, but a lot of them were harder than I thought they would be. But now that it feels like I'm getting somewhere, the ball is rolling, and I hope it doesn't stop.
I have been sending out resumes like crazy for full time, and part-time administrative assistant, internship positions and I finally got calls this week. The first call was for an internship that starts in January 2010, and goes through Fall 2010. It's unpaid and doesn't start until January (which i had been hoping to start before then), so that is the downside, upside is that it will last almost a year, and sounds like an ideal position as far as the experience I'd be getting. The other I had an interview the other day, and it went well, This also sounds like an ideal position, and it would start as soon as possible, which is FANTASTIC! I don't know whether this one is paid or not, but I'm trying not to worry about it, because really, I need the experience, and I would be lucky to get anything they give me. So the job hunt is going well!!
(South High Dance Team at JFK Camp: Summer 2004)
I also have recently started assistant coaching my high school dance team, which has been so much fun. It's quite a bit different than when I was in high school, as far as the personalities on the team, and the vibe you get when you're with them. They aren't all at the level of technique I had hoped for, but they all seem to want to get better. With me at the helm, they'll be whipped into shape in no time. But besides that these girls are helping me more than they know. They will be keeping me busy with practice, and paperwork, keep me focused-because being so busy I won't have time to dilly-dally, and keeping me in shape-at least better shape than I have been in. I'll be moving around more, and more motivated, eventually I will have more energy, and above all I am BACK IN THE STUDIO, around dancing, around people who LOVE dancing. It's like I can breathe again.
I have been more happy this week than I have been the last 6 months, and it feels good. Things are coming back together for me, and it feels real good.
