So , yeah… I’ve been quiet. There has been so much going on in my life the past few weeks that I could barely process it all. Just to give you an idea…
Right before Thanksgiving I was informed that my temp job would be ending at the end of the year. At Christmas. Nice. So for the past month I have been stressing over that and job hunting while working and going to school.
The first weekend in December was the last two performances for my band and between the two, one of our band members…while in my car, has a massive heart attack. He died a few days later and we, the band, performed at his funeral service. That was one of the hardest and most moving things I have ever done. So, now we have job hunt, work, school, grief…
In the midst of all this, my Mom has been dealing with a mysterious illness that has effected her legs. At first, they think MS…after much testing it is actually her breast cancer (from 7 years ago) that has come back metastasized in her bones. My Mom has cancer again. Seems weird to wish some one had MS… So…now…job hunt, work, school, grief, and worry beyond reason….
And now I have a cold. : ( ::whine::
BUT…this is a blog about school…not for me to whine about my life! HA!! So, how’s school…? School is great. School is my haven…my place to get away and it gives me things to do that totally occupy my brain, leaving no room for the other crap. School is wonderful. I love it.
We are still in the hair cutting section, but not for much longer. I’m holding my own, but do NOT feel ready for this section to end. I did a good job on all the cuts first time thru (except the 90 degree…which I got the hang of at the END of the cut…did fine the next time we did it). I just don’t feeling like doing these cuts once or twice makes us even vaguely ready to be on the floor. It kinda sucks. It feels very assembly-line…which makes me sad. I totally understand there has got to be some sort of time frame involved, but spending a wee bit more time on the hardest thing we do…and less time, say…putting in roller sets…would be a very good thing. I feel like I got WAY more practice at rollers than I do with cutting and that seems ridiculous to me. ::sigh:: What do I know, I’m only a student…?
No photo’s for you….never remember to take any. I suck. LOL
We are having a Holiday Hair competition at school this coming Thursday…so I promise to take photo’s then!!!!!
You will prolly not hear from me until after Christmas, so I wish everyone a merry and a bright holiday!!!
Be safe and be fabulous!
