Thursday was my graduation ceremony from cosmetology school. FINALLY!! I have been in school since September 9, 2008. It has been a very long road, and I've made a lot of sacrifices to finally finish. My family and friends have also sacrificed to help me out during school-special thanks to all those who came in for haircuts and nail paints, etc. You know who you are. To finish school, you must complete 2,000 hours at school, and a certain ammount of credits. For example: 400 haircuts, 300 chemical services (colors, lighteners, perms, etc), you get the picture. Then you have to pass a written exam and a practical exam, both administered by the state. I have passed both and as of 5:oo pm on Tuesday, I will be a licensed professional. Wahoo!
My mom and sister surprised me and showed up for my ceremony Thursday since I had to speak. It was such a fun weekend to have them here!! I did their eyebrows and hair, we all went to dinner, stayed up late chatting and eating junk food, etc. All the makings of a delightful weekend. Thanks so much for coming up mom and Kelly!
