I started school on Tuesday, and it is similar to what I expected, only perhaps a little bit worse. I was already pretty confident that many of the girls there would not be the brightest light bulbs, but my worst fear was confirmed--they all seem quite incapable of doing anything other than cosmetology. The test we had had today scared me a little bit though. I only got 106% on it, and I didn't study for it at all. To be perfectly honest, I feel like my brain is melting away when I'm at school. Granted, it has only been four days, so I can't make any true judgements yet. However I am seriously considering taking college classes online as well, to keep me sane. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy school and it is fun, but I really need more. Anyway, here are some pictures:
This is the first half of my walk to school. The second half is boring and ugly so I didn't take a picture of it. I don't mind the walk at all, except that I have to carry a huge bag all the way there. It takes me about 15 minutes to walk.
This is my huge bag. In it, there is pretty much everything a girl could ever want for her hair...including five different hair brushes.
Right before I get to school there's this HUGE dog that barks his head off at me all the time and sort of looks and acts as though he wants to tear me into pieces, but his wildly wagging tail gives him away. Who knows though, maybe that's a trick. His little fuzzy sidekick always follows him and stares at whatever he's barking at.
And here is my school!!! It's located in a strip mall (if you can't tell...), and right next door is where we can buy our supplies at a lovely discounted price. I feel very special going in there, because on the door in big letters it says "License Required" and I totally have one!!! :D
This is just another thing that makes me feel somewhat like I'm in elementary school again. Not only do a lot of the girls act like they're still in elementary school, but the teachers talk to us like that. "Oh you girls are SO smart!!!!!" And today for about 2 1/2 hours, we (just the four of us who started on Monday) sat in our classroom and made dream posters--posters full of pictures and words that inspired us or represented goals we had, cut out of magazines. I guess it's just a tradition they have there.
This is me and my manikin, Annabelle. Her curls are lovely, no? We have to work on these heads before we get real people. I don't know why.... :P
