... and we meet again

My absence has all been due to school and transitioning into this new life. I love my school, and it just feels so good knowing that this is what I am supposed to be doing. Just in case you forgot I am in Cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell. I love all of my teachers and I do love the students I get to work with everyday. It is such a big transition in the ways I am allowed to express myself and my creativity (a bit overwhelming at first I would say.) As a psychology student who has written thousands of papers, you learn how to be creative in your writing but there is such structure and outlines of what your paper is supposed to be, and then switching to cosmetology school you are just kind of thrown out there and you are allowed to be as creative as you can be, and are encouraged to reach and think outside of the box and they want you to fail in a sense that you will learn. You almost have to fail to understand what you are doing, and that my friends is scary. Even so, I know in my heart of hearts that I am on the right path and that feels good, and it is becoming less overwhelming and natural everyday.

It is such a wonderful place to learn and I love what I am doing.

I also get to do dream jobs like this.

I get to work with such amazing and talented people, that inspire me. I get to work with individual people that do what they love and come together for a beautiful outcome. I'm a lucky girl.
