-bullrush is your favourite sport
-you think your tribe is the best in the world
-your dad cuts your hair, gets hoha and leaves the other half for the next day after school!!
-your older brother makes you cry and your the one who gets a hiding for crying
-all your marbles are ball bearings and you try to pass them off as steelies
-Hello and goodbye are both said by raising your eyebrows
-your jandals / gumboots are: your running shoes, your work shoes, your flippers and your going out shoes
-your swimming togs are shorts and t-shirt. (and your in Maui, Hawaii, where all they wear is a bikini)
-you run to do bombs at the public pools where it says no running and no bombing
-brushing your hair is ... just putting on a beanie

-your at a party with the guitar and everyone only knows half the words to all the songs you sing
-you realise they're singing the other half of the songs that you didn't know
-you go to a party and at least a couple of your relatives are sleeping on the table
-you go to the same party three days later and its still going
-you go diving with one flipper, a broken snorkel and no goggles
-playing the spoons is right up there as percussion for the guitar.
-gumboots, jandals & a swandri are all considered #1's.
-the whanau hangi rocks, sacks and baskets get passed down to you
-rotten foods are a delicacy
-you use your whakapapa and the tino rangatiratanga stance to get into a public event and finally, you'll know your definitely a M�ori if you've read this email right to the bitter end, because...... M�ori don't like to miss out on anything.....

|It takes up a good 90 percent of your life,|

You never get back as much as u put in,
It makes the whole world go around.......
You either luv it or hate it.......
I HATE IT......6days a week suck!!!!
One day off is NOT enough,
If ever I needed you you'd come running,
If ever I needed your advice you always knew what to say,
If ever I needed love I'd just look into your eyes,
If ever I needed a hug your arms were always open wide,
I'm gonna miss you now your not here,
even though I know your near,
If ever I needed anything,
You were the one to ask,

|Still really Sick.....||2/27/08|
|Kia ora Koutou,|
Thankgod my saviours here helping me thru the rough patch im dealing with at the moment.
It looks like my mum has to go into rest home care as she is unable to talk or swollow therefore shes pegg feed straight into her tummy....
Although shes still in Hospital and doing quite well the possibility of me looking after her full time wasnt an option as my nan said i was to young,needed a life,and the roles between mother and daughter should never be reversed.So Im in the process of brecking down her whare...And what a mission....Mum keep 20years worth of documents ranging from winz to Ird to letters people wrote....Unbelievable....
Thankfull my nannys here to support me not only physically but emotionally too......
so thats where im at for now guys....keep in touch and I'll try and get back to everyone Asap....
