the wedding gig
Well, just got back from the wedding gig. It was actually a complete disaster but since none too many of the guests knows much about Latin dancing they thought it was great! Multiple mistakes. Chunks of routine cut off, had to improvise so as to restart rountine, forgot routine after turning - froze for a sec! Steps completely went out of my head for a moment. Again ... nobody noticed. They thought it was brilliant. Good job then, eh? :)
Told mum about me wanting to apply for the Aussie PR. Surprisingly, she's quite supporting. However, she's got this idea that I should learn the line dances from the CD she got from a friend so that I could teach people on the side when I get there. Yups! The same idea when I told her about the working visa to the UKs. Not sure how practical that would be. How do I actually get people to teach? I can't just go to a park and then just start dancing. I'd look like a mad woman. Don't you think?
Anyways, need to find more information about the application. I know about the application fee but I've heard that you also have to deposit a certain amount of money to the govenment/a bank as surety that you have enough money to live for awhile when you get there? This information wasn't available in the immigration page nor the high commission's page. Guess I'd have to email/call them one day.
Besides that, did more whining about how much I hate my job - something I've been doing a lot, a lot, a lot this past few days.
