School is Fabulous!

School is going great, I have taken two tests so far and got 100% on both, I got 100% percent on all my assignments and I have an A in the practical which is the practice on my classmates!!! I know that I am bragging a bit, but I am so proud because I have been working my brains out!

We had our first round of models this week, which means real live clients that are friends or family to work on and they get the service for free. If any of you would like to take me up on it, then fly your butts down here in the next two weeks and you can have a free facial. Taylor was my client and he was such a trooper, because he totally hated it. I did a double cleanse, exfoliation, extractions, a facial massage with essential oils and a 2- layer mask on him with colloidal(super hydrating) and paraffin wax. It was so much fun and I had been getting discouraged earlier in the week because treatments were taking me almost two hours on my classmates and I was worrying that I wouldn't be able to condense it anymore and then I did Taylor's treatment in a hour and a half! It's a little stressful, because by the end of the this segment(February 13th) the treatments have to be one hour, so I'm hoping by the end of this week, I will have it down for our next set of models! Wish me luck with that...

I feel so blessed to have been led to go into the Aesthetics industry, because I really enjoy it and I am excelling in school because I love it so much. It talks about the importance of getting an education in my patriarchal blessing and how important it is for me to select an area of study that brings me happiness and this really does. I have been dying to go back to school since I withdrew from BYU-Idaho in 2007 where I was taking online classes. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to study, and since BYU-Idaho didn't have fashion design, I was at a loss, because I didn't want to just settle for something that wouldn't be employable in the future and end up with just a piece of paper after four years of school. I started looking into Aesthetics and it immediately seemed like a great match for me, because it was employable and there are a variety of things I can do with my license, so I'll never have to worry about being bored with my job, I can just move from a spa to a doctor's office or a dermatologist's office or go back to school and learn laser hair removal or permanent makeup; the sky is the limit!

Well anyway, that's my update for now until next week!!

I'm so excited for you that you’ve found something you love. I remember when I was in Beauty school it took me an hour to cut my brothers hair, and my teachers said we should be able to do at least two, if not three boy hair cut's in an hour. I felt so overwhelmed and didn't know if I could do it. I think about that now and it makes me laugh! I can’t wait to get a facial from you, I'm sure you do a wonderful job! Maybe this summer will do a girl’s party and do some facials, pedicures and a movie!!
