Okay, let's get started! First I want to tell you about my CORE learning leader, Tabs. She is Ah-May-Zing. Just sayin'. She is so funny and personable and really knows everything we are learning. She is excellent at making everything easy to understand and knowing when we need a break or change of scenery. She has extremely high expectations that we learn. Tabs also likes to burst bubbles, which is both funny, scary, and informative. Trust me, you would love Mama Tabs!

Towards the end of the week we got to do what I know all of us were dying to from the second we stepped in the building, get our hands in some hair! Tabs did a wash and style demo yesterday when we learned about draping. We did pin curls, roller sets, and finger waves, oh my! Actually, I loved every bit of it. Pin curls was probably the easiest thing we did collectively, but we spent the least amount of time on them. Roller sets probably got the most amount of time, we did them for two days. Yesterday we actually got to do a full roller set and left it for Tuesday to see what they look like finished and styled. Okay, finger waves. From what I can tell they are the viewed as the most difficult thing most people do in cosmetology school. They came so naturally to me! I honestly loved doing them, and can't wait to try them again.

It was such a wonderful and reaffirming week. Everything we did felt so natural and comfortable to me. I know that can't continue, and that I will have my challenges, but having a good week right off the bat was exactly what I needed. No matter what the rest of this journey brings I know I will love it. Here's to the next five weeks of CORE, and the rest of my life!
