I've finally started! After a month of watching my sister and roommates go to school everyday, and being so jealous, I have finally started and I am so happy!
I've already made a few friends, I love the people in my class, the teacher is awesome, everything is so COOL!!! And check out my "free" iPad :)
During breaks while the teacher was out of the classroom, the conversation in the room would inevitable include iPads. For a lot of us, the promise of an iPad was enough to convince us that this was the right school. The whole day we were wondering when we were going to get them, and about 2o minutes before school was out, the teacher passed them out! AH! I am so excited!

Today we mostly talked about Aveda, the mission statement, and where all of Aveda's ingredients come from. Basically we learned how the whole industry works. It. Is. Awesome.

There is no reason for me to get sick!" Then came the cookie dough. Big. Mistake. I made a huge batch on Sunday night, I then proceeded to eat most of it, and by the next morning I felt horrible.

But the rest of the week I did nothing but online applications while watching hours of British tv-mini series'. If you have not seen the Masterpiece Theater's version of Emma, I highly recommend it. It's my favorite :)

Tonight I had my orientation for Aveda! I only have one week left before I start! I have been looking forward to starting school for weeks now, and I'm very excited for it, but I'm also wishing I had a little more time. I still need a job! I have been s…

Waiting... Just Waiting.

Each day I think "______ more days until I'm in school!" I can't wait. I have know for five years what I wanted to do, and now I am ready to start.

I remember being thirteen, and sitting in the chair just about to get my hair cut. The hairdresser began prepping and watering down my hair, and I had this overwhelming, wonderful feeling come over me. I knew immediately what I wanted to do "when I grow up". Just the idea of it gave me such a good feeling.
I told Mom the moment we got in the car. I'm not sure if she believed me just then, but she was entertained by the idea. She was probably imagining all the free haircuts and high lighting sessions she could get for free ;) She looked into it, and talked to the hair dresser a little. Dad certainly didn't think I was serious. When I would tell him that Cosmetology was definitely what I wanted to do, he would just say "well, we'll see. Maybe in a couple years if you are still interested, …
