I'm Back: Life Update + Beauty School

Well Hello There!
Should I reintroduce myself or do you still remember who I am?  Well, just to refresh your memory, I'm Ashlee. Hi. I've missed you.

I am finally back from my 4 month hiatus. I know, I know. 4 months gone in the blogging world is basically saying "RIP, This Blog is no longer available." But I promise you that this little heart of mine is far from being done with blogging. Honestly, I feel like I'm just about to start. Let me explain:

A lot has happened since you've last heard from me, you know back in March, YIKES! I found myself being stuck in this limbo of "Where is my life headed?" and "Should I further my education?" - I hadn't a clue in which direction I should go in. My heart was tugging me in one direction and my head was telling me to run in the opposite way. I was confused and my anxiety was at the highest it's ever been. And so, on most days I just decided to stay in bed all day. Waste my time on reading, watching movies, and binging on instagram. My Speedracer (the husband) began to see how my anxiety had taken over and I didn't want to think of anything. Not school. Not work. Not anything. I wasn't excited about much. I had noticed everything he had been noticing. And yet, I was still stuck in the in-between. 

That's when I decided to look into Cosmetology school - the place I had been wanting to go to since I was 14 years of age. I've always known that I wanted a Career in the Beauty industry. Doing makeup and hair has always been my passion. I was just never presented with the opportunity to go. Something else was always in my way. Until March. Mid-End March came and I had enough. I told myself I would do whatever I needed to do in order to get to where I wanted to go in life, which was Beauty School. So I did some research and made a call to a local cosmetology school that several friends of mine have graduated from. Two days later I had a meeting with Admissions and 4 days later I signed my enrollment papers. It was the 2nd best day of my life. (Our wedding day is #1 - of course!)

April 11th, 2016 - I began my journey to becoming a Licensed Cosmetologist. 

I still have 8 months to go in my program but in 1 more week I will move onto the floor and begin working on Clients. I couldn't be more excited. This experience has taught me so much thus far, in 4 short but quick months. I always dreamt about what cosmetology school would be like but I never imagined it would be this amazing. Being around people who have the same passion as you and are supportive in your dreams is truly a beautiful experience. I've never felt so comfortable, involved, loved, supported, and confident in my life. This is just the beginning my friends - Just Watch!

And now you know where I have been the last few months - Living Life and Chasing down dreams! Remember on the first of the year when I said my word for the year of FEARLESS? Well I'd have to say that it feels damn good to be living my life fearlessly and unapologetic. 

I cannot wait to bring you all on this journey with me and I promise it won't be 4 months before you hear from me again. I have so many things to share with you about school and life. Let's enjoy this together, Shall we?
