School Bells Ring

          It is crunch time and time to get my life together. I graduated high school in 2008, and I have nothing I can really show on what I have done since graduation. I have these plans and ideas but fulfilling them is the problem. Here is a little background of what I have done since HS. The  summer after graduation I went to a cosmetology school but I quit after 65% of completing it. I quit because I had no time for me and I wanted to always be with my friends, there were so many changes going on with the school and it was overwhelming me and I decided to stop showing up. I finally got withdrawn.
           After that I didn't do anything for a while and I ended up moving to Indiana,  literally across the states of where I was living. I lived with my dad and I told him I would go back to school. The problem was I have to many interests that it was hard for me to choose what career path I wanted to go down. I then applied to a Brown Mackie College and started going through the Vet Tech program. The director wanted to have individual meetings with everyone in the program. It was my turn and lets just say I left that meeting in tears and wanted to change my career program. I tried to with draw from that school because I didn't want to attend a school that the staff was going to treat me that way. They finally convinced me to stay and asked me some questions about what I love to do. Well I really loved playing with makeup and experimenting with it. So the directer convinced me that I should go into the business management program; so I did. I took a few classes and was frustrated because it was not what I wanted(so I guess you could say I quit again).
            I wanted to go to a makeup art school. In my opinion, it was one thing to put on pretty makeup but another on how to reconstruct a face based on application of makeup. That is what I want to learn. The problem is there is not local schools for this, so I would have to go to Chicago, New York or L.A. for a good school. I have a school in mind but it is expensive to live there. I bought a couple of books from a bookstore to get a general idea of what I will be learning but how will I make this happen? Can I find a loan that will help live there. I know there are options but what are they?

It really has been a long time since I have written a post. I think I am going to start writing reviews on things I am trying. Reviews on all things beauty. The only thing is that I don't know if I am going to post them here or my Beautylish account. I really do need to be more active on there. Maybe I could just let you guys ahead of time what to be looking out for and post the actual review on Beautylish. Any Ideas??

Sorry so short.

A few thoughts on my mind

I have had a lot going on. For one, I am moving so packing has been taking up some of my time, but I am pretty excited for this new change. I have been hanging out and doing things with my friends, that is where the majority of my time is at. I feel like there is so much to say but I don't where to begin. 


Something that was on my mind today was how much I miss being in a relationship. I miss being able to end my day with a call from him, or being able to kiss and be held in his arms. [ FYI: this is not about a specific person, just in general]. I miss being able to feel butterflies every time I see him. Knowing this, on how I miss being in a relationship [DISCLAIMER: I am not saying I am looking for a marriage kind of relationship] I think of how I can change that. 


As I was driving home I really thought about it. I know I need to go out and meet people maybe put myself a little out there..I got that. But what happens next? I am not sure I remember how to flirt without being to over the top about it. I cant remember how to put myself out there. How do I meet guys? I know this is cliche to write but it is what I think about when I lay in bed at night


I guess it will be another night to ponder this some more. :(


Love you guys,
Heather<3

Color the World!

So, I have been lost for words lately hence the reason I have not posted anything on here in a while. I was hoping that something would come to me if I just started typing and it did. 




I want to talk about color. I really love bright colors and when pair just right creates beauty. OKAY..so that sounded a little cheesy but it drives me crazy when people say my favorite color is black/white/gray..I am sorry but those are not colors it is what added to create a shade, tone, or tint. Yes there is a difference. 


Color can change the way someone feels...do a little experiment look at something green and then look at something red...feel the difference of how they make you feel.


Now keep in mind I am talking as a potential make up artist...I think if color was allowed in workplace there would be more individuality. I am kind of big on that too. I am not just saying this because I want have colorful hair. makeup and nails. I am saying this because I think it would make people a little more open minded, yes there would be a rise in opinions but what is wrong with that. 


People being more open minded, would create more ideas and maybe just maybe if everyones ideas were pieced together it create a more successful plan or bigger idea. 
I guess I am babbling a little, but it is something to ponder. 


Love always,
Heather

Being Me

Today at work, made me realize how many boundaries I have being there. The company I work for is a little old fashion...ok I can understand a couple of the rules (towards dress code) but I want to be able to work somewhere, so that I don't have to worry about throwing my hair up and making sure I don't have on fake nails.

Thats one of the reasons why I want to be a makeup artist. You can dress how you want and wear your makeup how you want and if you want your nails done so be it. I will be able to wear my hair down (baby let me tell ya I do have pretty long hair). I guess I am a huge believer in self expression. I don't judge people on how the look/ dress. I am not going to lie I used to do so, but I guess I never thought about the person. I'm actually pretty open to any style now and the hardest part [assumption]. That's where I used to go wrong. I would assume someone was a certain way based how they took care of themselves and dressed.

Which brings me to a perfect example. On my "vacation", I was in this town that had a lot of wealthy (really wealthy) people but looking at them you would think they were bums on the street. Sometimes I do find myself assuming, but I try really hard not to. I guess that is how I became so friendly.

Well, I guess I better get to bed .
Love ya girl Heather

Socializing

So I am learning a lot about Beauty sites and different events I can check out. I have decided I am going to throw myself out there to get my foot in the door. It is nice to have someone you know to use as a credential. I mean I wouldn't want to use someone for just that. I would like a friendship out of it too. I am just saying it will be nice to befriend someone, who knows what they are doing. I may have talent but I am not sure how to put it to good use!

I am doing it right now, I am setting a goal! My goal in life is to do someone's makeup/hair and get it published. Wouldn't that be awesome! Wish me luck!

Speaking of goals it is very good to set goals, but I was told by many wise people a goal is no goal without a dead line. Your more likely to fulfill your goal with a dead line. So I am taking the goal I just made and setting it to my 35th birthday (that gives a little more than 14 years to make it happen) and the reason I am giving myself that much time is because I don't have any connections or portfolio to work with right now. So like I said Wish me luck!!! and good luck to you for you goals!
