New Years off to a good start.

Hey everyone,

I'm diverting from the makeup and nails for this post. I have some really good stuff to talk about and some not so good stuff but thats life. I'll kind of start from the beginning. I really needed a change of pase for this year. I had done so good for myself academically last year that I really wanted to change myself professionally this year.
I finally found a salon that I'm happy in. I the kind of person that is a loyalist and I will stick something out until I get burned even when I know I need to break away. I was a little hisitant at first because I found the job listed on craigslist. I looked up the salon and found I was interested in the product. NO FUMES. Say it with me ladies. I can't tell you how awsome it is not to breath in that harsh color fumes, and I've done quite a bit of color already for only being there three weeks. We went through an intire order of color in a week. Before she got away with ordering every few weeks. I am finally earning my way again. I don't feel like such a lazy punk kid anymore and I feel like I have a purpose again, and not just a hope and dream. I know that I normally go to work with no clients on the books but I always go home with having done at least one client a day. I get the hands-on education that I have been craving. Yes I'm a bit of a klutz but I still get a sense of accomplishment everytime a client goes home happy.
I used to look at life as a grey tunnel. I had no bright moments to make me feel happy but I wasnt having a hard time either. I was just existing. I hate that feeling. the feeling of not really truely feeling anything. I never want to be there again. I have been taking steps like finding a job to help stay away from that  monogamy. Makeup is a bright place for me. I enjoy doing my makeup and then when I'm done I was back to the grey tunnel. I invite you to get out of your own grey tunnels and to take the steps you need to find the light place. The place of contentment and general happiness that I feel, even when I'm pmsing and dont want to be bothered.
I did get hit with a scam, but I'm moving on from that. I would love to do more photoshoots. Unfortantly I already have a full schedule with work and school (I'm working on a business degree now.). I would love to get back on stage and to act again. I would love to work backstage doing hair and makeup for the shows I dont get casted in. I still have a lot of wants and desires that I want to fufill. I also know that I can only take one day at a time. So far each day has left me tired and waking up with a smile on my face.
I would say my year is getting off to a great start. How about you?
