I haven't updated in a while. Of course, right after an entry about wanting to post more. This is me and my repetitive cycle. Honestly, I don't know where to start so I'm just going to jump right in.
ISSE Show: Bore-fest. I did not enjoy it. I guess maybe it's 'cause I pretty much don't give a fuck about hair right now. I was broke and it was basically a place to blow money. I stayed with Regina and we rented movies one night and then went to the movies the next. Quite fun. I walked around Hollywood Blvd. by myself and waited outside of a Whole Foods in hopes that Eli Roth would go grocery shopping. No luck, though.
Facials class came and went. I feel short-changed. I really like esthetics and am totally interested in learning makeup techniques but we were only taught things we need to learn to pass our State Board exam. I need to sign up for some advanced classes after I get my license to really be able to make that my ideal career goal. Also, everyone should wear sunblock everyday all day.
Now I'm in Chemicals class. Learning about chemical straightening and bleaching and color correction. Buh. I am interested in this but it's just tedious work. Applying shaving cream to my mannequin and going through all of the steps. I want to bug my teacher about color correcting my hair. I have the absolute worst hair right now. My ashy blonde roots are about 2 inches long and contrasting against the black it looks awful. I am going to try and remove as much black as possible and maybe go like a plum-purple. Not "in your face" purple, more natural than flashy.
I don't think anyone realizes exactly what kind of environment my school is. No one ever asks me. They just ask, "How is school? What are you learning?" and after that is answered, "Oh, when are you graduating?"
"I have no idea when I'm graduating."
"What? How can you not know!?"
I need 1600 hours to graduate. I need to have completed a certain number of hours and operations that are required. Each day I try to earn hours in specific subjects. Each day, the hair style or the activity I do is for a reason. For example, I need to do 200 Wet Sets. Right now I only have about 60-80. I forget. So it all depends on when I complete my time ticket and how many hours I miss and how many days I'm absent and so on and so forth...
To explain my school is complicated and it wouldn't matter to anyone anyways.
Fact is: it's hard and I feel like I will be there forever.
I'm still attending my Film class every Monday. I dig it, I keep ignoring assignments. I claim to want to be a director and yet I can't do an essay once a week. I fear for the future of this dream. I'm signing up for Film classes at SF City College...hopefully I can start going in the fall without conflicting with my Cosmo hours. 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. everyday. It's hard to fit in other things...
Last night I went to a bar.
Oh yeah, I turned 21.
Not too exciting. Been places but I've only been ID'ed a few times.
The bar tender lastnight said I looked like I was in my late 20s, early 30s. So depressing!
Anyhoo, I want to continue writing my story but of course, lacking motivation.
I will update more later. Hopefully.
