Yeah, I've been layin low. It's all going to the gym, eating mostly vegetarian, drinking only water, keeping the digs clean. That doesn't leave much time for looking for trouble. Unless you count deciding to go back to school as trouble.
As Mama Alex said, "All those trips to the spa paid off!" (Well, as of post time, facebook doesn't say her baby has come yet..waiting, waiting, waiting) I signed up for The Salon Professional Academy's Esthetician course. I gave it a few weeks thought. Usually I give my life decisions about an hour, sometimes 30 minutes. As I was signing my life away, and getting the financials, I thought I was going to throw up. I have to be confident that I can pay for it. It'll be a lifestyle change, but for the better. Starting September, I'll be going 3 nights a week, and every other Saturday. And after 43 long weeks, on July 3rd, 2010, I'll get my license. Who wants to be the first victim of my bikini waxing services??
I'm very thankful for all the support I've been getting for this decision. I'm being told I'll be great at it, and it's perfect for me. I'll keep doing my microderm/chemical peels to minimize my acne scarring on my face. That's what's really bothering me, but also why I decided to do this. I'm worried it won't go away as much as I hope it will, and people won't think I'm good advertising. When I go to the skin and laser clinic now, I just stare at everyone's pore-less faces, wishing that I had that perfect, smooth skin. I've been told my skin will get better. It'll just take time. I'm also doing this because for some reason, anytime I see an advertisement for a spa, or just see the word, I perk up like a cat that hears the can opener. I think I'll finally have a career I enjoy.
I'm excited to start this new adventure, and trying not to think about finding a job! I'm not too keen on moving right now. North Dakotans aren't all that metropolitan and frivolous. I hate to break it to you. I guess I'll have to change that...
