When I Grow Up....
I've always had three passions in life. Social work, children..... and esthiology. I know, I know. Weird combination. Social work doesn't exactly go with skin care and makeup artistry, but what can I say...
I've mentioned before that my first three jobs were in salons as a receptionist. I'll be honest, my main pull towards working in salons was the fact that you get salon services done for free, and for a hair color junkie like myself, that's like heaven on earth. But I also really enjoyed learning about cosmotology and esthiology. I probably would have gone to school to be a hair stylist after high school if I wasn't afraid of butchering someone's locks.
All of this to say, after a lot of thinking and talking to Justin and my fabulous hair stylist/cousin Cara, I'm seriously thinking about going to esthetician school. It's not something that I would be able to jump into right now. With our wedding less than a year away, I need to be saving all of the money I can! But it's definitely something I will be looking into after we get married.
I absolutely love social work, but if I'm looking way into my future, it's not something I want to do once Justin and I start having children. Social work careers take up a lot of your time and energy, and if at all possible, I want to be a stay-at-home mom when my children are young. But let's be honest, this day and age, being a stay-at-home mom, for most families, is financially impossible, and I'm more than willing to help out if needed. Being an esthetician would allow me more flexibility than a social work job would.
So you never know ladies, in a couple years I could be giving you facials or doing your makeup and working my social work magic on you at the same time!
