Apologies for my MIA status. I have been... lazy. At least I'm honest! But I have some very exciting news to share. I am enrolling into a college, I suppose you could call it a beauty school (but they also offer business and floristry). I will be studying for a diploma in beauty therapy!
I will be starting in October and doing a full time course. I'm actually really excited, even though I'm not officially enrolled yet. I need to first come up with the administration fee, student kit and full course fee. I have applied for government funding but I'm not sure yet if I'll be eligible. It would be great though, I would save about $14,000 in fees. I need to save for a car as well, before the course starts because it's about a 20 min drive from my place. Public transport is not an option (for me, anyway)!
Studying a diploma of beauty therapy will enable me to work in a beauty salon, spa, cruise ship etc. Anywhere that offers beauty services. I could even manage or own my own salon. I know a few girls who have studied the diploma and are now running their own salon from home or have great jobs in a salon. For me, the main reason I want to study it is because I have a yearning to learn more and therefore teach what I know to others, or help them physically.
