Are you happy with the job you have at the current moment, if you have one.

I'm really happy with my current job. Except for the F***kin' co-workers sometimes. Salary is real sweet, and allows me to maintain financial stability(and still save up for a decent acoustic piano and pay for masteral and music classes).

Though there are times that I'd wish that I'd taken music more seriously, I could have been a really good pianist right now.
Yup.. still a beginner. Up til now..

When will a teacher accept me? :/

Teaching kids provides a lot of laughs - keeps the job entertaining. I was teaching a year 2 student (7 years old), and after he apologised for making a mistake (he's a little nervous), he told me that his dad lets him watch Top Gear, and that every time James May makes a mistake, he usually says 'Oh Cock.'

Pissed myself laughing to hear him just blurt it out, a rather large smile on his face, his eyes wide open - without any real concern or bashfulness.

I used to love it, but over the past few months I started gradually hating it. I'm thinking about getting reassigned...
I'm a soldier in one of those parts in the army where you go back home everyday, but I live 2.5 hours away (and work hours are 0800-1800 at best case scenario, so do the math...), so I find myself on the bus at least 5 hours a day. It's pretty terrible, and also I never sleep and don't have any spare time (I'm lucky if I get to play half an hour a day, mostly I just play on the weekends). I asked the army for accommodation about a 100 times but they don't give a damn.
Also, I have no clue why, but over the past year the people here have gotten so stupid. All the good people leave and get replaced by dumbasses.
The job itself used to be really interesting, but I think all the other hardships of it make me gradually lose interest in the subject.
Damn, that was good to get off my chest...

I'm sorry for you man. That sounds rough.

Did you play the piano before you went into the army or whilst you were already in there? Probably the first one right? Try to do some work on mental practice. The bus is an excellent place to do it.
