Taking Back my Life

Today I am taking back my life. 
I tried college, and although my IQ says that I should be in school paying absurd amounts of money to basically teach myself, my parents and I have decided that is not what is currently best for me. I finished every semester unhappy and frustrated with my performance, but no matter what I remained an average B/C student. So with my fathers shove gentle  nudge off the ledge (he just quit paying for college) I finally had to reevaluate my life and where it was headed. So this is what I came up with....

I am creative.
I am smart.
I am social.
I am not meant for college right now.

It took a long time to accept that last one. I went to a high school where you had to go to college, they even applied for someone once. My parents made it through college even after my mother got pregnant at 19 and my stinkin wonderful brother practically got paid to go because he is so smart. I thought all those things meant that I was failing some unknown college God by not going; however, the only person that seemed to really care was me.

I am going to Paul Mitchell cosmetology school and I am proud, and I am excited, and all of my family, sorority sisters, friends and boyfriend support me. Its time I quit lying to myself and just do what makes me happy.

Beauty makes me happy.
Fashion makes me happy.
Socializing makes me happy. 
Making others smile makes me happy.

I am taking back my life and finally doing what I want with it, starting with this blog. I am here to show y'all what I am learning at school. I am here to make y'all happy. I am here to be myself. I am here to show y'all my style. I am here to have fun.
