Over the Hump!!!

It's official! Jacob is now half way through dental school!!! To celebrate Jacob's school throws an Over the Hump party.This year it was held at club Bimbo 365. Contrary to what the name sounds like, the club was very nice/classy. The people who put it together did a great job. There was food, musical entertainment by the students, a talent show, a free photo booth, dancing, and fake casino games.

Licensed Cosmetologist

On January 5th I took my state board exam to become a licensed cosmetologist. I wanted to share my experiance. First off it was probably the most stressul thing i've been through. The place is located in Fairfield, CA so the evening before my mother and I drove up there and stayed at a hotel. I had been studying for a while and was so stressed yet just wanted to get the thing over with. My day started at 5 am. I didn't get much sleep (like 4 hours) even though i went to bed at 9 because thought like sodium hydroxide relaxer and pin curl formation wouldn't leave my mind. At 5:45 we drove to the location and I recieved my rental kit which is a big suitcase of supplies. We then filled in some paper work and got assigned a room and station. This is where the fun begins. On a side note models are not allowed to talk, listen to music, or read. This makes the room very quite

My procedures were
-set up
-predisposition test
-manicure and build a nail- this means my mom got a manicure on one hand a fake nail on one finger of the other hand
-Wet set- for this you finger wave the enitre head and then put in rollers, pincurls, and volume pincurls while keeping the finger waves intact. I totally rocked this part.

In case you dodn't know what finger waves are here is a picture from when I practiced them.
- Hair cut
-Tint back to natural- this is where we apply shaving cream to the hair and pretend it is hair color

We then got a 20 min break

-Sodium Hydroxide relaxer- again we used shaving cream to represent relaxer product
-perm- we used color water as the perm solution
- eyebrow waxing
- thermal press- this with a comb and curling iron that go in a mini oven and is then used to straighten and curl hair.

In the morning I finished a few minutes early but my fake nail was a joke. In the afternoon I finished just in time. It's pretty crazy because the whole time a proctor is watching you and writing down notes. They mostly watch if you are keeping your client safe and being clean. One time when i was rinsing out my mom's hair I spilt water all over the floor. Panic almost took over but i remained calm and cleaned everything up.

After the practical I had a break and then took the written section. This was 110 questions and they throw out 10 random ones. After completling the test you head to a room and wait for your name to be called. Luckily i passed and will never have to go through this again!

Thank you mom for letting me cut your hair short and put shaving cream in it.

Visited the Grandparents. Funny story I have to share. For Christmas my brothers and Jacob got little remote controlled helicopters. They're pretty hard to steer so I told Jacob to be careful and not hit my grandma with it. A minute later and the helicopter is crashing into my grandma's head. She was fine and we all had a good laugh at Jacob

Played in the Snow. WE pulled a tube behind the 4-wheeler

Christmas Part 1

For the first part of Christmas break Jacob and I headed to New Mexico. Jacob's youngest sister Katy was getting married. It was a wonderful four days of family, eating, and pictures.
Jacob's mom did a FANTASTIC job of pulling together a wedding in such a short time.
Jacob and his older sister Kristen sang a song at the reception which was so sweet.
I helped do Katy's hair for her big day. She looked Gorgeous.

It was sad to only have a few days with Jacobs family but we made the most of them. Welcome to the family Jordan and Congratulations Katy and Jordan!
