FP Appreciation Day

Here's some pictures from a friendly class competition we did yesterday.

 We had a group, had to pick a model and a theme, and do the hair and makeup. Simple. Easy. Fun. We chose the theme of nature, and up here we have kind of a polluted, industrial styled nature, with bits of tin foil and trash in her messy hair. The model looks upset, but she's really not. That's just how she looks all the time hahaha.
 And then here is the "natural nature" theme. Kind of an Eve look. Very simple and easy. Those are real leaves.
 The other class chose a fire theme, and it turned out super super cool.
 The dude that you can barely see in the back is our teacher. He was a grouch. Hence the reason why we spent the morning playing with hair and makeup, rather than actually learning anything. I mean, we were gaining experience and being creative, which I good I guess, but I was still upset that we didn't really do anything new.
Yesterday was FP (Future Professional) Appreciation Day, so we got to wear whatever we wanted! They also handed out Phase Awards, and I got High Honors again. Yay!

Oh school... I love it, but recently it's been turning into a bigger deal than it should be. Our teacher is SO new, and my class is halfway through the program, and it's getting to that point where it's harder to come to school, it's not all new and exciting anymore, and I just think our whole attitude and his whole attitude does not mix well. He complains about us a lot, how we don't seem very driven, we aren't very respectful, we don't listen, blah blah blah... And it's gotten around the school, and we get some crap from the other students about the things that they've heard about our class. I used to be so happy to be in this class because the teachers said we were great! We had a wonderful reputation, and now I feel like we have a terrible one.
Anyway... we made our teacher cry yesterday, and I still don't even know why. All he tells us is how he hates being treated, yet he never gives examples of what we've done. He doesn't like to talk about specifics, he just likes to slam the whole class. It's getting old. It's getting tiring. And it's making me feel bad. I didn't know I was a bad student! And I would like to change things, but he won't tell us how we can! It's a frustrating situation, and I'm just ready for this phase to end. Three more phases, baby! I can make it!

Good Week :)

What a wonderful week this was (or has been so far, since I guess the week isn't quite over). I was able to enjoy myself a little more at school, which has become increasingly difficult since the new guy started teaching. He can be a little bit of a fun-sucker. 

This is the little laundry door in between the laundry room and the shampoo room. I thought it would be fun to try and squeeze through it on tuesday, and let me tell you, I have never felt so good about myself than when I managed to fit through that thing. I seriously was in the best mood the rest of the day!

Holly and I found Blue Bell Ice Cream today :) How awesome is that!? There's a little shopping center nearby called The Riverwoods, and it reminds me a lot of South Lake Town Center in TX, only a little bit smaller. They have a surf shop there, of all shops! But attached to it is like a little indoor pier. Lots of little arcade games, indoor surfing, and a Blue Bell ice cream parlor :)
