Diary of a Cosmetology Student |Bellevue|
I have always found myself gravitating towards all thing beauty related. Countless hours spent on beauty blogs, watching tutorials, reading product reviews, reading and clipping out pictures in magazines, you name it. When I find myself with any extra spending money I instantly start thinking about what fun new pretty things I could try. Even as a little girl, I have always loved playing with hair and makeup, I’ve always been a product junkie. I love the way having a good hair day and putting on some lipstick and mascara could make you feel like you can take on the world. Feeling great changes everything, gives you confidence and makes you feel stronger. And who doesn’t want that?!
Recently, I found myself looking for a change. Looking for satisfaction with myself and my life. I knew I needed to do something more meaningful than having just a job, I needed more than a 9-5 to pay my bills.
An opportunity came along that had me thinking about the long term and my future and what exactly I wanted from life. I’ve always have thought about going to cosmetology school, but never seriously did anything about actually enrolling and following through with the idea. Well, I got to thinking that maybe it is time to actually go for it, to follow my dreams and do what I love to do. I cannot spend anymore time just thinking about it, I need to work hard to get what I want. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will, so now is my time to make my dreams a reality.
I spent a lot of time researching schools and reading tons of student reviews. I decided to check out Evergreen Beauty College, the Bellevue campus. After walking through the doors, I already knew this is where I wanted to be. After talking to the staff and taking the tour, it was final. I was going to do this. So fast forward a few weeks and it is my first day! I was so excited, I hardly slept and could barely contain myself. After meeting more of the staff and the other new students, I knew I had made the right choice and was right where I needed to be.
A month later, I couldn’t be happier. It has been an absolute whirl wind, in a good way. The very first day we were already taking notes in a theory class and jumping right in to the program. It is incredibly fast paced, as there is SO much to learn, and there are only so many hours in a day! But I wouldn’t change anything it all, I love the fast paced hustle and bustle. To be surrounded by people who feel passionate about what they do is amazing. It is inspiring to spend the days learning about something I love, it makes me more excited to get my skills perfected for when I am ready to start my new career. It is never too late to follow your heart, or to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. I cannot wait to see what my future had in store for me!
