leaping towards spring! & career path

Sunday, March 14, 2010

One thing I dislike about today is having to give up one hour of the day! but being that it is almost 7pm here in San Diego and the sun is still out, I love it!

I was super tired today, thus I drank coffee, and somehow it made me even more tired and groggy! weird...does coffee give you weird side affects too??

red cup :o)
Whilst I was conducting some info my my group project tomorrow about careers related to strength & conditioning, I immediately became curious about the process of becoming an Esthetician. So I did some research to find out about the school and certification progress, and decided to maaaybe take a leap of faith and consider it in my future. Definately a different direction from my Kinesiology major eh? * le sighhh

So I went through my financial aid files online and decided to add a school that is accredited in that field. If somehow I am able to go to that school without a cost, then no doubt will I fit that into my future. I am excited and can't wait to get more info about it.

Why am I acting upon this interest?

-I have been interested about this career for the past ~1.5 years but never acted upon it. It was all because of my first experience with my esthetician Martine. As you might have read previously, I had struggled with acne for so long, then it got worst to the point where I would cry about it and it affected me socially (I did NOT want to go anywhere and had self-negative talks!). Then after I went to Martine for a few sessions, I've never felt better and my confidence level went up tons! Because acne doesn't go away forever, it does take maintanence for clear skin, but I do not have the money for that right now.

It was amazing how this service affected me dramatically in a postitive way, and I played with the idea that I wanted to provide that same feeling for someone struggling with any low self-esteem issues with their problem skin.

By the way! Isn't the art form of Henna tattooing so exotic and beutiful? I love it!
For a girl who is sooo undecisive, thus wouldn't get a tattoo unless I was SURE about what I wanted with no regrets (that is hard) I would love to get this.

Did your plans for the future ever change towards a different direction waaaay different. Or were there things that you NEVER thought you'd do but you took interest in it?

Hey girlie! I worked at skin care salon when I was in high school and saw first hand how much the Estheticians really loved their jobs! If its something you're interested in, why not pursue it? You could always do it on the side to start?? I went to school for engineering and now do a little engineering, a lot of financial work and teach group fitness on the side ;)
