College Week 24 – My Final Night!!

OMG I can not believe how quickly 24 weeks (plus a few holidays) has gone!

Tonight was my final night at college, no practicals or theory, it was an evening spent signing my log book & topping up my written exams with some verbal questioning.

I was most nervous about the questioning, I had already revised for my written exams but going through it all again was nerve wracking, I only got one chance to get it right!!

Turns out I have a good memory, either that or I went through my notes so much preparing for my written exams the theory elements had implanted themselves in my head! A quick read of my notes & I was prepared… then a quick fire round of questioning & I was done. Over just as quick as it had started.

And really that was it, that was my evening. It’s so weird, while I was signing my log book I felt like how I did when I registered my oldest sons birth, I feel like I now have this huge responsibility! No more tutor around, this is it, I’m out on my own!

So after all them weeks, I have finally done it, I am now a qualified Nail Technician!! I am so so happy I accomplished something that for so long I wanted to do

Unfortunately I don’t get my proof of qualification till august so I’m still legally classed as a student till then, but still I’ve done it! I’m so so happy, thrilled, chuffed & excited!!

My advice for anyone out there sitting and just wishing to do something they’ve always dreamed about, Don’t! What do I mean by don’t?….. Well don’t just sit there dreaming about it, go out and do it, you’ll never know until you try and really what’s the worse that can happen?

Failure is better then regret.

So what now for me, well I’m ready to get out and about! I’ve been doing so much background stuff, websites, insurance, government papers. (More of that in my next Getting Started post) I’m a bit of a perfectionist but I want clients to know straight away I’m a professional. First Impressions are everything.

Education wise, I’m not ready to give that up just yet, I have definitely caught the bug 🙂 So I’m back to college at the end of this month to start a pedicure course. I also have my sights set on an OPI Gel Color course for just before the summer sets in – perfect timing don’t you think? 🙂

So, much more to write about in the future, I hope you’ll continue my journey with me. Thank you all for your support xx
