Well, hey there...I left work early, so I'm doing laundry...and dusting off the old online journals.
Things have been stress, stress, and more stress. It seems that every time I turn around there's another bill to be paid, and not enough money to go around. The boy and I were looking to move, but we have yet to find a place as cool as the one we have, so we're going to stay as long as we can here, and hopefully be able to make it through the super rough patch that's coming up soon.
...When I go off the clock. Right now I'm paid a meager hourly wage, which is above min. wage, but definately not livable in this area. In a little less than a month, I will be solely on comission. Which is scary...but soon after that, I will be charging half price for color, which isn't much, but it's better. so by this time next year, I should be in the best shape I've ever been in. But we shall see.
On top of all this I have a health concern. It's probably a clogged pore or ingrown hair or something, nevertheless I'm going to the doc tomorrow...and will probably end up being traumatized for days over a silly little pustule (i hate doctors...they always make me feel violated). But it's better than not doing anything and having it turn out to be a cyst or something worse.
On the other hand, I'm progressing with my color at work much faster than I thought I would. Which means I will be paid for doing color soon, as opposed paying for it.
The chances for my attending a haircutting seminar in Las Vegas this Dec. are also looking rather promising. They've reserved my spot in the class, and all I have to do is keep doing well at work, and somehow come up with transportation/lodging mula, which might end up being covered by the salon as well.
Also, I get to be an alien in an independant film production with someone at work. This should be exciting. I've never been in *front* of the camera before.
Anyhow...more tomorrow :]
