Special News AND More Portraits! ^_^

Hey guys!


I am going to tell you some awesome news!

I will be leaving for Asia in a couple of months... My parents think I need some more training in haircutting so I am going to be staying there for 6 months + ! Probably almost a year or so.... I'll probably be vacationing more than training.... so.... I will definitely be bringing my camera and taking pictures where ever I go. This time around... I will definitely go eating out so you will definitely be seeing a lot of food pictures in the future...


If you guys are wondering... I will be in Vietnam soon! Anyone ever been there before? :3 I'm probably going at the start of next year... or something

I think this will be a great experience since I will be going with my sister and without my parents!

I think this trip will be awesome but the flight won't! Each time I go we always get delayed and so I'm in the airplane for almost 2 days... which sucks!

Anyways.... I'm going to post some more of my art..... I've been portraiting a lot and I want to draw more anime/manga related stuff so I'll post some of that too... ^_^







I'll post some more later but right now I am currently waiting for my test results! Hopefully they will come tomorrow! I might post more if it does come so please cross your fingers for me! ^_^ Thanks for reading today!











Cosmo Ramble... Some drawings AND Tralala Giveaway!

Hi guys! I'm back with another post! Possibly a lot of rambling on my part... T_T

On monday of this week I was driven 6... not 1... or 2... or 4 hours... but SIX hours to the testing site to get my cosmetology license.... SIX HOURS! It was not fun at all because I had to wake up at like 3 in the morning and get ready to leave. We were constantly on the road so not many pit stops in order to get to the testing site on time... We had to check in before 12 o'clock in order to get in to test.

If you were late.... you were sadly not able to take the test. IT was funny that they made everyone wait till like 1:45 before we actually entered to take the test. I was dying by then.

There were 14 procedures we had to do. Haircut, perms, relaxers, coloring, lightening, manicure, structured nails( aka acrylics), and etc.

We were taking the test for 5 hours and 40 minutes! NO freaking breaks in between. If you did break... you have to make sure you have time to do your procedure because the break counts towards your time... which was impossible for me. Everyone was running for the bathroom like their lives depended on it. I just chose to hold it in... for the better... or something... If I get UTI I might just sue them... Just kidding.

I've never had a test as hectic as this... during the 5 hours, everyone had to stand.

I was so freaking nervous!

Throughout the whole test, the ladies were like hawks staring at you... invading your space.... and checking everything with such a keen eye.


Some girls had brought acrylic kits that were opened and weren't sealed so they weren't able to take that portion of the test which just might cause them to retake the test and pay 99 dollars all over again and possibly drive to the test site again.

One girl at my table was crying a whole river cause she couldn't take it... and then the judge checked another girl and she was also unable to test that part... her face got really red too... I felt so bad for them. There were 5 girls at my table, btw. We were all judged by one lady.

I felt so relieved when we were done with testing... I literally ran to find the restroom... it was such a stressful test!

I'm still waiting for a letter to arrive telling me if I pass for fail. It's supposed to come in 10-15 days after testing... and I have a couple days left. I get so nervous when I see my mailbox.... i hope it's good news!

Anyways... after I got home all I did was sit around and relaxed and went to drawing since I didn't do any of it since I was studying for the tests and everything.

Drawing is stress release for me.

So I ended up sketching... and drawing portraits.... some of them are from during class time in cosmo and some after I finished my testing....




 This one has been unfinished since last year... I've been pretty lazy and haven't been doing much.... *sigh*










You probably notice how.... you can see some words in the background or something... that's because these were almost all drawn on scrap pieces of paper in class.... i couldn't find any white paper... heheh.... anyways I only used a mechanical pencil .07 lead and plain paper.... and some napkins I had.




Other than that, I was also playing the keyboard like mad... which I have been trying my hardest to play Fur Elise, moonlight sonata, etc AND Jay Chou's Qing Hua Ci. Which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!




I'm literally obsessed with the song.... in between songs I was also learning Haru Haru... Lies - Big Bang and Suteki Da Ne.... too many things at once right?

I'm looking for piano sheets of Pon Pon Pon and Tsukema Tsukeru- Kyari Pamyu Pamyu. Love that song!












NEways

While browsing around for Gyaru stuff...like I always do... I came across Tralala and their awesome giveaway. Tralala is under the same company as Liz Lisa and I absolutely ADORE the LIZ LISA brand. Tralala is also a big Gyaru brand company and their stuff is really cute!

Aloe Vera Care and Some Shoe Hauls!

I'm on the roll today... so I decided to post some more stuff for my starving readers! Just kidding!

Recently I got some aloe vera plants and have been trying to take care of them... but I'm not too sure... I'm supposed to deprive them of a good environment... watering like... every 1 to 2 weeks. I guess it's supposed to be good if I treat them badly...

I'm hoping to grow an outrageously LARGE aloe vera farm and live off of aloe vera for life... lolz.

It's known to be good for about everything... from skin to helping certain diseases and stuff... so it's a good thing to be growing them!



They're looking good after I finally realized that you shouldn't overfeed them with water... don't water everyday... THEY WILL DIE!!!!

I also took some really pretty pictures of some carnations!




Really nice, ne?

Other than that... about a week or so ago there was a store selling all their stuff to close and I got a lot of shoes for like 4 bucks! Lucky right? I bought a lot and then realized... they're just going to lay in my house unused since I really don't have anywhere to go with them... especially in this small town.... where wal-mart is like the only place to go for fun... sadly...


















They are good eye candy though... right? Glad I decided to buy them though... never know when I have to use them to flaunt myself.. right? KEkekeke


I'll be back to post some nail tuts or something later! Comment away my fellow readers! ^_^

Cosmetology Part II ~_^

Here's some more pictures! Enjoy the view! ^_^





I really loved the whole heart braid thing so I attempted it... it turned out pretty well...



Here's some other nail arts... and my tree *kakakkakakkak*








This one I cut and styled and highlighted. Love how the pink came out!!! It was so freaking bright and I loved it! I'm glad I got to do something so out there! Anyone want purple, pink, blue... or something outrageous done to their hair? Call me up! ^_^

Look how badly I was bleeding!



Just kidding! That's just some really dark red nail polish! It looked a whole lot like blood! hehe




Other than that... I attempted tattoo art on my poor plastic hand!





That's it for now...; I was going to go scan some of my art that I had in my binder but then got lazy and decided to laze around... lolz.... I'll do it tomo...row.....O_o Maybe....

A little from my Cosmetology Journey

Okay so on the 1st of August I was supposed to create a celebratory post but after I was done with class, all I wanted to do was  laze around the house all day. That included laying around watching burn notice, Chinese paladin 3, and stuffing my mouth with food.

Other than that, it was a day worth celebrating for! Why? Because that was the last day of Cosmetology!!!!! Hurrah!  I never thought that this day would come! In the last month or so I've been staring at the calendar constantly! To finally be done means the whole world to me! I'm done!!!!!!! D to the o-n-e!!!!

I was running around the house like a total loon while my mom was staring at me like I was crazy! Crazy I tell you! But I assure you, I am perfectly fine!

I feel like right now my internal clock is all messed up. Everyday I end up waking up at 6:30 because that's the time I always had to wake up for class! Thank goodness I am done! *wipes sweat off*

I could tell that I had a whole lot of stress built up just from being at the school for 10 hours a day AND dealing with all the drama from everyone else in the class.... but now that I am done, I can only breath out in relief.

I know that I haven't shown you guys any of the things that I cam to learn from cosmetology so I decided... today's the day!




I had an affinity to drawing trees as nail art ~_~ Sadly, I don't think people really want trees on their nails... lolz.. I'm still practicing on my nail art.







There was this really cute tape dispenser! ^_^



And then more hair stuff....



Anyone recognize the cute blue thing? Poorly drawn but recognizable right?


I'll post more later when I actually sift through all the stuffs I did and took pictures of! I'm waiting to go test for my license so wish me luck guys!
