First Day of School!

Well, I survived my first day of classes! Ah! Not that the first day is ever hard. It was all just talking and orientation. They did give us our school t-shirts though, that was exciting...
(don't mind my boring bathroom and bad quality photos...)
We were also asked to make Dream Boards. (if you've seen "The Secret" you'll know what I'm talking about.) They gave us some colored paper, glue sticks, scissors, and old magazines (I'm talking 2005)...
(this picture doesn't even deserve to be full size. That's how much I dislike it. Yuck)  Well, I don't know about you bloggers, but that did not cut it for me (pun inteded). So I made one... to pass the time and stay on task,

But as soon as I got home I made one the blogger in me would be proud of...

Better??

I think so.

In other news, my car problems were minimal (knock on wood. I'm a big believer of knocking on wood), thank goodness. Apparently one of the fuses came loose and kept disconnecting. But it's all fixed now. Whew! The toilet is still clogged, but my nose has, for the moment, stopped bleeding. SO that's a plus. haha!

I think that this will be a great place for me at this time in my life. Obviously someone (points to Heaven) wanted me here at this time and I'm excited to see what is in store. I do miss home of course. The scenery is different here. Still mountainous... just a different kind of mountain. Definitely one I love, I've just never LIVED around it. I can't wait until I have a chance to go out and snap some pictures for you all! It is a very beautiful place. :)

I also guess I should stop being so cryptic and tell you what type of classes I'm taking. haha! Sorry about that. I never like to share too much until it's set. And you never know who's reading... creepy. Anyways, I'm taking some Esthetician classes and I'm super excited about it. I've always been the makeup artist of my friends, health and beauty have always fascinated me, so why not make it a career, right?? :)

I hope you are all having a lovely week and I can't wait until I have a chance to catch up on your blogs!! Thank you all for the SWEETEST comments ever! I love knowing I always have my blog friends. :) You guys sure know how to make a girl feel loved!

Alyx said...

I like the dream board! Such a fun idea.

Before I read down to the bottom of your post I was like, WHA?!?! What school just gives away school shirts! I want one!

That is sooo awesome that you're taking classes to become an Esthetician! Seriously. I could NEVER do that. I have a hard enough time just figuring out how to tweeze my brows, and don't even get me started on my attempts at makeup. You have a gift that some of us were definitely NOT blessed with, my friend!

Glad the car issues worked out, too!

Ruthie Hart said...

so glad you survived, I bet you will do great!

Shaunelle said...

Love the dream board. I want to do one!

Also, so glad things are going well done there and you're getting all of the troubles figured out. Car problems are the worst. Can't wait to hear more about your classes!

Candace Stevenson said...

haha I'm sure your real life dream board is great! But I do love the bloggy one, too. And that's funny your toilet is clogged. Well, not funny, but basically mine just overflowed into my entire house. So it' funny the coincidence :) lucky us! And my aunt is a makeup artist! She loves it and does makeup for confernece {so peeps aren't shiny on camera} and movies and stuff. It's a really cool career. You'll <3 it, I'm ure!

Lovely Little Rants

Wow, your dream board is so beautiful! What program did you use, or how did you make it?

That's so exciting that you are going to be a makeup artist! At first, I didn't even know what Esthetician meant! That's such a pretty and fancy name!

Good luck with everything! I hope it all goes well!

Amber said...

your dream board is fantastic. The blogger in you should be proud of it.

Deveny said...

Your gifs are always the cutest. haha
Good luck with your classes! I know from personal experience, whenever I encounter crappy trials they seem to heap on top of me and not too long after sometime nice happens. Just reaffirms Heavenly Father knows & loves me. I don't mind that part of the life cycle. :)

And how about that "digital" dream board...now that's more like it. :)

Amber said...

Glad everything turned out well :) I remember doing so much cut and paste in high school and they never turned out like I planned (except for those few where I brought scrap booking supplies.) Anyway when you said that you knocked on wood always it put that Mighty Mighty Bass Tones song in my head lol. Well good luck with everything!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

AWESOME!!! like wow and everything. i adore the gif - Gentri you're so smart! speaking of knocking on wood, the boyf got me little pre-made wood chips to stick on stuff so i could reach some wood whenever necessary. um, that could sound suspiciously dirty but you know what i mean ; )

i think it's fab about your new career choice, way to go to your destiny!!! xo ♥
