Do you suffer from greasy eyelids? Do you want your eyeshadow to stay on all day and in to the night? This last April I stumbled upon this fantastic product from my favorite make up line, M-A-C...you may have heard of them. ha ha I'm so funny. Anyway, Eyepaints! They really work. I use the 'bare canvas' everyday! I hated that my eyeshadow looked all lined and creased and half off by the end of the day and NOW it stays on until I wash it off before I go to bed! It's amazing! Try it! (I'd like to thank Georgia at the Mac counter in Vegas for introducing it to me and making me buy it.)

I made my first pie--chocolate pecan

my whole family was here!

It was chaotic but I cried when they went home! We went to Disneyland, we went shopping, we did a beach bonfire, we cleaned up the yard for my mom(happy birthday!) , and we went to see Twilight--totally liked it better than the book! haha. Edward was hot. Loved the cast, loved the scenery, loved it all. 2 thumbs up from me!

Here is a big update on my life over the past couple of months. I haven't written much--mostly because I haven't felt very inspired but partly because I wanted to include pictures on this one...
These first two updates are really important.
1. I have discovered that reggae makes me feel like I'm on an island vacation. Jason made me five bob marley cd's and that is all I listen to now. Can't get enough of the rasta, love, knotty dreds mon.
2. I purchased some new sunglasses a week ago-- I finally said good bye to the paint chipped ones. The new ones have a tint to the lenses so everything looks sorta bronzy. It's like viewing the world through rose colored glasses--it really is pretty. I noticed that green lights are now teal lights. See? really important!

Andrea got married in San Diego on Oct 11th. I was there to do hair and makeup for her and her 7 bridesmaids! It was a busy day but I had fun! I love my Andrea and my Faulkners!

Brian and Andrea Williams

I made these flowers for her hair out of lace from her dress...

I had to take a back view of all of the bridesmaids... side buns!

I turned 32. Everyone says, oh 32 is young. Well within 5 days of turning 32 I managed to eat dinner at 430pm at both IHOP and Coco's and ordered off the senior menu.
Since my birthday is on Halloween, I had to wear a costume. Me and Deanna dressed up as Barbies...

I was a Heroin Barbie...

Yes on 8. It passed! Here we are holding signs on a corner the night before voting day.

Unfortunately we are feeling the sad aftermath of protests and anger and hurt. I just wish that it wasn't being so directed at mormons. Mormons made up of less than 2% of the yes vote! The people have spoken in California: democracy at it's finest. Until the majority has a different opinion, we have to learn to live accordingly. This really isn't as interesting as signals looking teal though, right?

I stole this off of Heather's blog...she's the wedding planner from Ali's wedding. The wedding was featured in San Diego Style Weddings Magazine! My name is totally on there in that yellow box. I'm published!!!!

Here is my PROP 8 vote yes blog. I like this little video. I think it explains things well...


Monday, September 29, 2008

I'm sure a lot of you have seen this--it was featured on a radio show recently and has been circulating though email but I had to post it. It's a Good Housekeeping article from 1955 (clearly written by a man)

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

FRINGE is a great show....Tuesday nights on Fox. It's another JJ Abrams show who is kind of my favorite person for three reasons: Felicity, Alias, and Lost.
I can't stop playing Dr Mario on the Wii so that's all for now...

ok let's talk about something that has to do with BEAUTY. I need to thank the good people over at Origins for creating this fantastic product.

Quick, Hide!™ Easy blend concealer
I have gotten so many compliments on how my skin has improved and looks so good now--they've seen the years of spots that seem to continually plague my face. They have not left but are hiding under this fantastic product. Not only does it hide my blemishes but it doesn't contribute to more blemishes. Most of the time, you can't even tell I'm wearing it. Screw bare minerals! just kidding, just kidding, calm down.
ON a different subject, A few weeks ago I decided it would be a good idea to start playing tennis. My dad told me yesterday that if you can qualify for the US Open and be in the tournament and not win a single game, you'll still walk away with $10k. So I got to thinking I just might have to improve my game and I had a dream last night that I was competing. However, in real life, I'm experiencing what could only come from GETTING OLD. It used to be that I could take on whatever physical activity I wanted without too much trouble. Here are the effects of my sudden burst of physical activity at age 31.
week 1
tennis 4 nights and soccer 1 night = bruises and sore muscles
week 2
tennis 2 nights and soccer 1 night = pulled muscles, more bruises, and a limp
week 3
no tennis, no soccer = left over bruises, tight muscles, trouble getting up off of the floor

I've been thinking a lot about these lately and I decided that I might be slightly insane. Here they are:

I'm afraid to turn off lamps without first checking under the lamp shade because on Arachnaphobia, one of those baby offspring spiders was waiting under the shade and totally bit the person turning off the light AND THEY DIED.

Whenever I use a bathroom that has a shower curtain, I have to check behind the curtain to make sure there is no one there.

There is someone or something(like a freak monster) chillin in the bottom of the outhouse...thanks, X Files.

Sharks live in the lakes that I'm trying to waterski/wakeboard in.

Sharks are in the deep end of the pool at night. (Jaws pretty much ruined me)

Sometimes there is someone under my bed...in that whole 3 inches of space that would be physically impossible to squeeze in. (am I 5?)

Even though I clearly saw that there was no one in my back seat when I got in the car, I still imagine there is someone there waiting to hold up a big knife so I can see it in the rear view mirror and then stab me. So I turn around and check.

I think there might be one or two I'm missing but this is all I can think of for now. I'm so tired I almost wrote rear like this: rirror. What?

Monday, July 21, 2008

Does anyone know how to post you tube stuff on your blog? is this not possible anymore? please help the retard (me).
Ok I love LOVE this movie Summer Magic. We used to watch it over and over when we were young...we being my siblings and myself. I have to admit that this song gets stuck in my head all too often...

I may have said this before but I feel like an old lady trying to work a VCR when I use Facebook. It frustrates me and I don't get it. I wonder if maybe I'm just becoming an old lady. I've been carrying handkerchiefs around in my purse for a while now and have recently decided that bright eye shadows are a really good idea. I've secretly always wanted to be that crrrazy grandma that wanders around with bright lipstick on and says whatever she wants. I want to embarrass my kids and grand kids with what I show up to church in or with the crazy stuff around my house...kinda like Maude in Harold and Maude. That would be perfect. I wasn't planning on behaving this way until at least my 70's but maybe it's coming on a little sooner due to the subconscious. I could go on but I'll spare you! The end.

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

1. I love the salon I'm working at. It's so chill and there's no drama. It's perfect! So far I've had clients every day--3/3. Gotta keep it up! Refer your 909 dwelling friends. I know they're out there!
2. I have had some time to do some reading in between clients. I must say that I learned quite a bit in today's reading session...I read Cosmo for the first time in like probably 15 years. I've never had so many incredulous thoughts before:
You can do that?
Really, they like that?
You want me to do what?
Are you sure?
Skip that page.
I've never felt so naive and kinky all at the same time in my life. I wonder how for real it all is...would love to read anyone's thoughts on this one...haha!
3. My sister Michelle had baby number 4 today. So now she has 4 girls and my other sister Stephanie has 4 boys. Cutest kids in my world! Can't wait to meet the latest. She came C section--kinda crazy b/c the others were all out the--um ya. Anyway, I'm an auntie again!
4. I found out today that my ex that I loved and wanted to marry 3 1/2 years ago, is getting married. I'm really pissed off about it--not because I want to marry him but because he's getting married before me. He was the one with all of the stupid issues and was all messed up. (I know, I don't know why I wanted to marry that either) So now I'm just mad. Life is so not fair EVER.

Last night I sat at the kitchen table eating icecream with three little kids. They were talking my ear off about baseball games, fireworks, and spiderman. Despite all of the happiness and fun conversation around me, my mind kept returning to the house I spent the day in. Flashes of the white doors and white moldings, covered in black dust; flooring and walls removed; the initial walk through= solemn, quiet, reverent; Deanna crying from the depths of her soul, fighting to come back to the surface but drowning in the sorrow for the loss of the person that meant the world to her; A house once filled with excitement and energy, now standing hollow and still--yet echoing a quiet whisper of a life's end.
My friend Travis Alexander was found murdered in his home this week. I feel shocked and sad. I just keep shaking my head the more I discover. Who would take another life and in such a violent manner? Travis was a good person. He worked hard to become a person that everyone loved. He went to church, attended the temple, read an endless amount of LDS church related literature. He loved to quote the scriptures and he truly loved the Lord. He spent every morning creating a list of goals and would check them off as his day progressed. It was haunting to find his last index card. He didn't have a chance to check one item off.
As I sat at that table, watching those kids as we ate icecream, it was hard to believe that there was actually happiness outside of the sorrow and horror I had experienced the three days previous. I forgot that life actually still goes on and there are people out there that are still experiencing all kinds of wonderful things.
So I went to the temple today and I was reminded of the larger picture. Our time here on earth is such a small part of it all. So really, as awful as it is for Travis to have died the way he did, I'm actually happy for him. He's in a place that is more wonderful than we could possibly imagine. He is happy to be there and he could not care less about the things he left behind--his house, his furniture, his car. As far as people he left behind, he loves them so so much and he took that love with him. The time between us seeing him again will seem long, but to him it will be so very short. As much as we will miss him, we can forge ahead and find happiness again. We will experience wonderful things and feel joy and peace. I already find peace and joy in knowing without a doubt that we live beyond this life.

Yesterday I put all of my clothes in bags and threw them off of my balcony. I felt like I was kicking my boyfriend out but I was really just avoiding carrying all of those bags down the stairs to my car. So my move has begun. This morning when I woke up it felt like Christmas! I guess you could say I'm a little excited to be moving.
A couple of nights ago at Origins, I helped this lady. As I was putting make up on her, she asked me how old I was and then proceeded to tell me her words of wisdom. I have to share them because it was funny--she was sitting in the chair, her head leaning against the make up display, and she was falling asleep. Imagine trying to put eyeliner on someone with their head cocked to the side like that.
1. Never let yourself get out of shape.
2. Take care of your teeth
3. Save your money
4. If the builder asks you if you want extra insulation, take it.
Great words of wisdom. Good times.

It's ON.
I'm moving! I'm moving! I'm moving!
Yes, I'm a little excited. I've been trying to make Nevada work for me...made a solid effort to make myself a permanent resident but alas, I came to the conclusion that I needed to move away much to the chagrin of my poor roommate.
JUNE 15th I should be back, moved in, and ready to go. I will be living in Riverside with my parents(cough) and working at this salon like a block and a half away. I will be able to walk there which is good for two reasons. 1. gas is like $800/gallon 2. exercise
I like living with my parents actually. I have my own space and can do my own thing and when we do cross paths, I get along with them pretty dang well.
SO when you need to recommend a hair and makeup artist to someone in the 951, send 'em on over! The salon I'm going to be in is cool and the owner is totally cool. It's pretty much everything I've been looking for so I'm way excited.
side note: I just finished Stephenie Meyer's vampire series. I read Twilight last year and just hadn't gotten around to the other two b/c I didn't really like Twilight all that much. But after reading New Moon and Eclipse, I would have to say I like the series. Her writing got SO MUCH better towards the end. My advice to someone who hasn't read it would be to pretend that all three were one big book and to not give up and just read through them all. I realize that you all will hate me for saying this but I think I'm a Jacob fan. I wasn't until the very end of Eclipse. I don't know....we'll have to see how the fourth book pans out!

This weekend I went to my good friend Liz's wedding in LA. I'm pretty good friends with all of Liz's family and they all obsess over my full name. It's not Tracy--It's Tracy Lee Green with every address. Actually lately, it's been TLG a lot. Dr Tray kinda came and went. So even if some of the extended family didn't know my face, all I had to say was my full name and they knew exactly who I was.
It was a smaller wedding than I'm used to and I was right there in the middle of all of the action. I did like everyone's hair and even did some makeup. It was fun but a lot of work! I was exhausted by the end of the day--to the point that I wanted to cry. But I didn't. Just kidding I did. When Liz and her sisters and cousins did this polynesian dance that I can't remember the name to, I cried. It was so pretty and all I could think about was how cool it was that they are keeping the traditions of their culture alive.
I think I've been to one too many sealings because I had to really focus on being reverent when we were sitting in the sealing room waiting to start. I was trying not to make faces at everyone and run over and whisper silly things in their ears. It was a good thing they started when they did! I made it through without crying until the end. After that, my roudy insides came crashing out and I told Deanna that I wasn't crying, it was just raining on my face.
It was painful to not laugh after that.
Lately the thing that makes me really tear up in the ceremony is at the end when the sealer tells you all of the blessings you are going to recieve from having made those special covenants. I'm so happy for Liz and Rob! ....and everyone else and their mom that's decided to up and get married this year. heart you all!

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

So I was really excited to go to the mailbox and see a card that wasn't a wedding announcement. My aunt randomly sent this one. Isn't it funny?

It says 'the search for mr. right continues....'
I love you Aunt Diane!

Friday, May 09, 2008

It's summer time so I'm getting my summer on!

Flip Flops 24/7
Bathing suit almost 24/7
laying out
MAYBE moving back to CA but big fat maybe

There is not enough time to work so maybe I just won't...

So I totally went to Disneyland on Monday. I bought a season pass so for all of you that have the socal select pass and want to go ANYTIME, let me know. That place is TRULY the happiest place on earth. I really think they are siphoning laughing gas in to the air. I was in the FOULEST of foul moods and as soon as we got in to that parking lot, BAM! Happy, happy Tracy. I could tell several funny stories like how these boys thought me and Dano were lesbians b/c we were sharing a Matterhorn car. But another time. My favorite story by far was the one that gave me the biggest head, of course. We were totally exhausted after wandering the park for 6 hours and decided to go in and watch this movie: Disneyland, the first 50 years hosted by Steve Martin. We were waiting inside this large room, full of Disney paraphernalia when Dano convinced me to come over and watch this little slide show of disney characters through the years. So I sat down on this bench next to her and these 17 year oldish boys, and waited to see the really effed up mickey/minny mouse characters. All of a sudden I see one of the boys jump up from the bench. I looked up at him and he was looking back at me with this expression of complete shock on his face. He gained composure, almost unable to speak and said, "Oh my gosh! I'm sorry! I totally thought you were Cameron Diaz!" It seriously made not only my whole day, but my whole freakin year. I made Danielle take a picture of me right then.

So does that mean I am hot enough to make out with Jude Law??? or date Justin T??? teenage girl scream---ahhhhhhhh!!!

Monday, April 28, 2008

My phone had a melt down this weekend and I lost most of my phone numbers....if you get a chance, send me a text with your name so I can save you again!

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Ya know it's funny how the choices we make everyday have such a ripple effect on not only our own lives but other peoples. Like if I had gone to Hawaii last September with one of my friends, he most likely would not be getting married on a day very soon that will remain unnamed. There was no way that he or I would have ever known the consequence of that choice. It's crazy to remember and feel, almost if you just went back in time, and you're looking at the future or what is going on right now and thinking wow ok, now I see why.
I just made a choice. It was probably the hardest thing that I've ever had to do because right now, I am back in time and I can't see the future and think wow ok, now I see why. I basically had to pass up probably the coolest job offer I've ever had and hope that the ripple effect will be all for the best. I'm so thankful that right now, I feel totally at peace.

Wedding morning--all was super calm. We got her ready and out the door on time!
Super happy couple.
Cute little vintage bride.
oh look--yes I was really there. Steph and baby James, Mom and Dad
close up just before reception. pretty! pretty!

I had to do fingerwaves for my state board exam in CA. I practiced on my mom the day before...pretty sweet.

Friday, March 28, 2008

Yes, it's POISON. In the late 80's, I remember sitting in the family room, watching MTV with my brother and sisters. This is back when they used to play music videos. Was that a guy or a girl singing? Long hair on a BOY? bandanas? leather? what is this? It was Axel Rose singing Sweet Child O Mine. The more I saw it, the more I liked it and from there I became a total butt rock/hair band fan. I couldn't get enough of Poison, Motley Crue, Winger, AC/DC, Van Halen, Guns and Roses, Scorpions, etc etc. (Don't worry, I still listened to New Kids at the same time.) I thought the earrings, big hair, and make up thing was totally bizarre but I was in to it all the same. It wasn't really until grunge rock came around that I started to form crushes on singers so I never really found this whole look as attractive:

But HOLY CRAP have you seen ROCK OF LOVE with BRETT MICHAELS??? I now see what all of the older girls were freaking out over.

All of a sudden, this week, I've had a MAJOR crush on Brett. I think he is dripping with sex appeal and I am now constantly flipping over to VH1, just hoping a rerun of rock of love is playing or a commercial or SOMETHING.

Oh Brett, I love you.

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Today was marathon wedding day. My cousin Alison got married and yours truly was the stylist--the hair, the makeup, the dress. It was so much fun! I overheard so many people say how beautiful she looked and I just stood by and thought to myself, ya, I did that! My dad put it best by saying she looked straight out of a vintage vanity fair magazine. I can't wait to post pictures! So some highlights of the day were, performing a choreographed dance in front of 350 people, sitting at a table of awkward single 30-ish year olds, and Uncle Alan trying to set me up with a married guy. It sounds like I'm being sarcastic but they really were the best parts of the day!
Dance: Alison and Eric decided to make up a dance after being inspired by the salt and pepa push it video--you tube it. So the song was a Junior Senior dity and in the end it looked like we were in the thriller video--not because we looked like zombies although maybe I did--but because we surprised the crowd and jumped in and started dancing with Alison and Eric about 1/2 way in to the song, moving all together. It was seriously so fun!
Awkward table: I appreciate the gesture here--let's put the people that are single together so that they can find a match and unsingle themselves. However, at 30 we all feel uncomfortable with ourselves no matter what because we are all thinking the same thing: there is always a reason why a person hasn't been married before 30 but I'm def not included in that statistic. So all of these people are a bunch of weirdos and I'm the only normal one. Let me back up on this story really quick. When I realized that my seating assignment was different from the rest of my family, I just about died. I knew what was coming and I was the first one at the table. Uncle Alan + his whole family was at the next table and they kept offering to have me come and sit with them but I declined saying thanks but I'm not going to fix it, I'm just going to complain about it. So as the table filled up, I noticed that they were all watching and giving winks and nods of approval at the obviously single boys now filling the seats beside me. After the table was full and we had been sitting there a while, Alan came waltzing over, leaned over and said to me just loud enough for some to hear: Tracy, would you still like to come over and sit with us? I wanted to sink under the table. I mean really, how do you get out of that??? As Ali came by to greet us she asked us if we had found our eternal companion at the table yet. I think I was the only one that really laughed while every one else got really uncomfortable. I love these stories!
Uncle Alan: The first time he embarrassed me was at the luncheon after the temple. He had been talking about some guys that he wants to set me up with and said that there was even one guy there at the wedding that they thought I would like. I didn't think much of it until I realized who it was. We were sitting around chatting when this particular individual walked by. Alan called out, Hey Bryce! Have you met Tracy yet? It was too late. I couldn't do anything but say, yes, we met sort of last night and hope that Alan wouldn't say anything more. After a minute or two of chit chat, Bryce walked away. Alan asked Well??? and I replied, He's MARRIED!!! But good try. I should have just played it off and called Alan out on the spot in front of Bryce but I was too flustered to think to do it.
Ah I love family weddings...June 7th is another one!!!!!

This one goes out to my man, GEORGE.
Dear George,
I just want to thank you for cooking my chicken to perfection EVERY TIME. It's truly amazing and I am just dying to know how you do it! My life will never be the same considering I now make chicken every time I work at Origins--where you are now living. I will never forget the day when Danielle brought you home from work and I thought she was crazy to have kept you there--not because I was missing out on you but because I wondered what all the fuss was about. Why was it so important to have you there? It was only when I started working there too that I realized how important it is to make freshly grilled loveliness for dinner instead of heating something nasty up in the microwave or spending what it takes to make in an hour on restaurant food. My life is now complete thanks to you.
hugs and kisses,

ok ok, YES I just worked an 8 hour shift and YES I'm a little delirious. For most people, working that amount of time is totally normal. For me it is, however, the past few months I've worked on a bunch of different things in that time period--do hair for a few hours, go to Origins for a few hours, sew for a few hours. So doing all Origins is a bit crazy for me. I'm more exhausted than working a 12 hour day of all three jobs. How is that???

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

I walked out in to the kitchen to give danielle a scare with my hannibal lecter origins face mask and was met with her black charcoal mask...
I took a color personality test a few years back and discovered that I was a 'white' with a 'red' as a close second. Taking the test made me think back through my life at my behavior. I've always been shy and super low key but there have been times where I've been really passionate about something and unleashed myself. I kinda thought that was cool and was proud to tell people my colors. Being red meant that I wasn't afraid to stand up for myself or speak my mind and white meant that I didn't ever do that so I felt like maybe there was a balance and I would only really speak up when it was important. It's only been recently that I realized being passive aggressive isn't necessarily a good thing. I let things go and in theory want to pick my battles (aka: avoid confrontation) so I don't pick any until the same battle builds up and I explode. I am a scorpio and born in the year of the dragon=calm on the outside+violent storm on the inside. I'm seriously a walking time bomb! Why am I writing about this? Probably because I actually had the courage to stick up for myself and say exactly how I felt before I exploded. I'm growing!

Monday, March 03, 2008

So my friend Jeff was in a marathon on Saturday morning and he convinced me to come along. I'm not really sure why he wanted me there....maybe to entertain him after he was finished?
He did a great job running. I was super spiritual and read the Ensign until he was finished. Oh and I took pictures of some different cactus--err cacti? and the red mountains since we were at Red Rock.
We had to leave at 5am so I was up at 445am. Since then, sleeping in is nearly impossible. Yesterday and today I was awake by 7am. My life is ruined! Now I can't stay up late with Danielle to watch LOST (we are almost done with season 2). I could barely keep my eyes open past 11pm last night! Oh the mutiny!

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

So I happened to watch Conan last night and was super excited when I found out that Will Arnett was going to be on...Will is better known to some as GOB Bluth. I think he is so hilarious and this interview was--wow--just check it out!
Flava Flave was on too. He was wearing a lot of fur and a bear hat---yes, a bear hat. I think my favorite part was his idea of a romantic date--Benihana's and bowling. So now we know why there is a Flavor of Love THREE.

Friday, February 22, 2008

I've been tagged by kim and alicia so here ya go:
10 years ago: I was in my second to last semester at byu. I was watching xfiles every week and the guy I had accidentally fallen for told me that he got back together with his x girl and was going to marry her.
5 things to do today: photoshoot with Emily, sew Ali's dress, sew Ali's dress, sew Ali's dress, and sew Ali's dress.
I enjoy: listening to the White Stripes really loud in my car!
If I were suddenly made a billionaire: I would dedicate my life to helping the orphans.

5 things people don't know about me: I am addicted to Lost season 1 this week. I am terrified of commitment. I don't like candy-just chocolate. I watch the View sometimes. When I was little I would get a piece of kraft cheese and put mustard all over it and eat it--my sis would make fun of me but I loved it!

Sunday, February 10, 2008

I feel like every January I find myself in the same situation--kind of unemployed but kind of not. I am somehow pulling it together enough to pay the rent etc. but I can't really figure out where the money is coming from. It's not like I have a full time job but I am working and busy all of the time. At the same time, I manage to take time off when I need it and I sleep in almost every day. I don't really want to have that taken away so I am afraid of changing anything. However, I want to go to Lake Powell this summer and with the way things are right now, I won't have much extra to do that AND travel to/live in Australia next January. Oh yes, by the way, that is the plan so long as it isn't hindered by a marriage proposal. I looked on Craig's list for a job--I've been on there many times just sorta checking it out to see what kind of options I have. Every time I have been on there, I have seen numerous posts from people in desperate need for a hairstylist or a makeup artist for a photoshoot or a movie. Today, there was not one single post which was quite saddening when I'm finally in a position to apply. I've decided it's all because of the writer's strike. All of the hairstylist that should be working on tv shows, can't because of those greedy little whores. So they are out doing the jobs that people like me would do. SO not only have the writers taken away good television and left me crap reality shows(except for project runway), but they have slimmed down the job market. You know what? I think it's their fault we are in a recession! I would strike back against them once the shows are up and running again and refuse to watch, but knowing that I was missing out on Jack saving the world again, or Michael driving in to lake, or Meredith and McDreamy breaking up again, would be too much to bare. I guess I will just have to stay in this perpetual state of semi employed for a little while longer.

Origins School
I sat in a room of 17 women and 1 gay man today (so 18 women) for nearly 8 straight hours. My boss Colleen is super hilarious and she has a way of making just about everything funny. Not sure how it came up but she mentioned to me one day how funny she thinks farting is--and believe me, whatever she finds funny, you will too no matter how you felt about it before. So we're sitting in class: It's about 3pm and our lunch has settled and we are starting to get super punchy because none of us have been allowed a diet coke and we're staring at a slide show about plants. Someone's chair was making a noise--at least I think it was a chair. You know how sometimes when you sit on a leather or vinyl chair and you go to move and it makes that noise? Well that is the noise I kept hearing although the chairs were all clothy cushioned seats. So the instructor stopped talking as she was pausing between thoughts and I heard a little pherrrr! I look at Colleen who is sitting across from me and she looks at me and we both had these wide eyed looks of terror slash oh my gosh I am going to die of laughter! It was as if we both wanted to yell out, uh what was that??? But we couldn't and no one acknowledged it so we had to hang our heads in silence which was totally impossible! The instructor kept talking as if nothing happened and I put my head down and pretended to take notes as the tears came to my eyes from holding back the laughter. I could hear Colleen across the table taking deep breaths and hiding her face in her hands desperately trying to contain herself. I couldn't look up for fear of meeting her face again and completely losing control! Eventually I gained composure by convincing myself at how silly my sense of humor was. I am so glad we didn't hear "the noise" the rest of the class!

Ok so I have to be the most relieved individual on the planet. I took the CA state board for cosmetology and I totally passed! I have been dreading this test since I graduated from school. I don't have immediate plans to move back to CA or anything but I wanted to have the option. I'm pretty stoked!
ok so funny thing happened--this is the best part about doing people's hair: they tell you everything! I was coloring this girl's hair and her boyfriend kept calling her. She mentioned that it's usually really hard to get a hold of her but it's easy for her to get a hold of him. She said that he's not really that busy at work so he'll always answer when she calls. She on the other hand, is always super busy at work and can't always talk. So later that day her boyfriend came over to get his hair cut. She called while he was over and after he hung up, he said the same thing as she did earlier--although he was the one that was always super busy at work and she wasn't ever that busy. I almost thought he was kidding when he said it or that maybe I was being tested to see if I would keep it in the vault! But he was being totally serious! When I saw them together later that night, I just had to laugh to myself and wonder how many other little things were going on....at this rate, I'm sure I'll find out!

Hi party people! Ok so I've had a lot of concerned individuals wondering what is going on after that last post! haha how I love you all! I'm still working at Origins in Las Vegas. I'm planning on living here for the next year because A. I signed a lease B. I don't know where else to go C. hopefully I'll get hired on to another show and D. I like it!!! The only concern I have is that Origins doesn't pay the bills and neither does just doing hair--right now-- but hopefully the two combined will be enough and eventually I will be able to fade out Origins...even though we love it!
On another note, this guy that looks like Lenny Kravitz just wrote me on this totally awesome dating website. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! This has to be the one! jk.

I need a job. I'm losing my mind to the point of melt down. Ok I have a job and I have work but I'm working on blind faith here and it's making my insides feel like they are burning with acid. Being self employed has its joys and its sorrows. I love that I have freedom to make a schedule that works with what I want to do but I don't love that I don't know if I am going to have anyone to put on a schedule. If you build it, they will come---right?
