2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: January 07, 2006 09:54:02 PM
sorry if this is a little off topic...

i'm going to be going to cosmetology school soon (yay!), and i'm really excited. but I have a question for you girls (or guys) out there that have gone or are going now... what kind of tips or advice can you give me that you wish someone would have given you?

i'm so stoked about going, and I know there's some of you craftsters out there (especially on this thread) that do hair, so lemme know!

also, if you know someone who does it, and you have maybe a tip or advice you can give me, i'll appreciate it. any thing. Smiley


Yeah, Stick with it, before you know it you will be working a job you love!  oooo I love going to work everyday, and I know when I was going through school there were times where I wanted to quit, just because stress and the thought of "is this really what i want to do?'  well obviously it is if you choose it, you are compelled to do so! hehe.  My biggest advice is to find a job that offers advanced training when you are done with school, I have learned so much more AFTER cosmo school from my job then I did the entire time I was in school, in just the first 3 weeks of my advanced training for my job. It is really neat all the wonderful things there are you can do with hair!  so much!! experiment!!! have fun! It goes by so fast.  You can email me if you have any questions at anytime, or ever wanna talk about anything anytime.  [email protected].

Me and my (ex)boyfriend and 2 friends were the golden girls for holloween in 2001, it was so funny.  We even sang the theme song rather then say trick or treat so people would guess who we were, cause yeah we were a bit too old to be trick or treating hehe.  but entertaining!

Resin is tricky, (yeah they are all resin) I love it tho, you can do so many things.  I just hate tho how it because hazy and bubbly!  I wanted to send a note along with it, but didnt get to since my mom mailed it out befor i had a chance (to the wrong person none the less, hee) I wanted to tell you that the set of magnets, the ones that are all of dorothy was a theme "the expressions of dorothy" I found them on a fan website and thought it was funny!  Hope it all looks good, you never know how that stuff gets after awhile.  I'm glad the whole mix up got wroked out.

sorry I didn't mean to go so crazy. I just had a little swap induced breakdown I think. ergh.
Hopefully you get your stuff soon Kerriedaway. I tryed in make a cool theme.  I am sure things will be ok with me, i just get scared. Life is so crazy, one minute things are looking up and your having a good time and the next everything just turns inside out.  Blah

We would all love to hear what you made for hankpeice since hes too "busy" to let us know himself. I am sure it was great!

MerLeigh - I am gonna start working on some stuff for you.  I have finally finished swap overloadness and have some free craft time.

Hankpeice hasn't responded to any of my pms latley.  So I am assuming he did flake.  Dont worry tho, Merleigh, I have it covered. 

I have been flaked on many times, and it does suck.  I did the Let me make your craft swap one time and made all these cool things for someone who never said if she recieved it and never sent to her partner and dissapeared.  Yeah it sucks.  Putting time and effort in to something and then not being able to even know if it was recieved or even know if they liked it.  It sucks.  But that is the chance you take with things like these, and the majority of the time people do come through with some pretty awesome things!!  even if you do get flaked on, there are so many honost craftsters who are willing and wanting to make you something to make up for it.

I wouldn't let this one bad swap discourage you, because honostly for the most part this swap went rather well.  Only 1 flaker and 1 extremely late person (me).

I hope you guys will try new swaps, they can be a lot of fun.  really. 

Sorry to everyone who is upset. 

KerriedAway, you should be getting your package soon, princess_me is going to send it to you for me.

I know things are going shitty but I am trying so hard to fulfill my swap obligations.  So hard.  Things really have come up for me, I cant even begin to explain what a difficult time i am going through at the moment, and which was so totally unexpected.  At the same time I feel an obligation to send things out, and yes I am very late and yes that sucks.  Yes this swap hasnt gone well and I know that I am to blame in ways. I am trying my best tho.  I really truley am.  I dont want to just give up and flake. I am trying to finish out the rest of the swaps I started, Its just so hard when you have a million worries on your mind.  I wish that you guys knew my sincerty in what I am saying.  I know it means close to nothing coming over the internet.  I know.  I just cant really say anything other then I am trying.

Things just keep getting worse and worse and everything I try to do latley just keeps getting screwed up and screwed up some more.  I have no energy, no patients, I am tired and weak, I can barley stand to get out of bed, but It stresses me more and more everyday knowing that I cant do something so simple as something I used to love to do so much. 

I am truley sorry to everyone.  I really am.  But I am not a flake and i will come through.

yarnwench - that would be awesome if you want to send out to Jungrrl.  I have a couple other flakers in some other swaps I have to cover for, so this would be really nice.  It is a fun swap to make things for!

Thanks so much for offering to send!!
