I started my new job on Tuesday! And I love love love love love it!!!! Seriously to the point that I was off today and it kind of made me sad.
I have kind of always felt like the black sheep in my family. My parents and sister have a very strict path that they want to follow. My dad knew what he wanted to do in middle school, and my mom didn't know exactly what she wanted, but knew that there was only one way to start and that was to go to college. My sister is the same way, she has changed her mind about her career, but not going to actual college was never an option. Me on the other hand...Like to think of myself as a free spirit. ha. I never wanted to go to college and I definately didn't want to be a teacher or a business woman or anything that required just sitting behind a desk. But with two parents that are in education, not going to school wasn't an option for me. So I feel like I definately wasted 4 years of my life at N. Ga. Once they started to see this however, I finally got my way. Under their very weary eye I might add.
They don't really understand and they think that I am just playing and wasting my life, but I have never been so excited about something in my entire life. I went to orientation on Tuesday and got all of my classes. And in the same day, I started my new job at Kathy Adams Salon. I think that one pretty much goes down as the best day of my life so far. I stil can't get over how awesome it is and how excited I am about finally starting my career in exactly what I want to do. Now all I have to do is keep hoping that my parents will learn to take me seriously.
I do want to do this to have fun, but I want to do it for other people as well. I mean serisouly, how amazing do you feel when you leave the salon? You feel like a new you. I want to do that for people. And use my creative mind to do it.
Sooooo- Here's to a new chapter...and a new me :)
