School Update, and an Awesome Giveaway!

So I finished Makeup III last night with my exam (technically it's Makeup: Bridal, Glamour and Runway). I studied, and studied and studied. Our lovely teacher, Jakki, had said it would contain everything from Makeup I, Makeup II and Makeup III. So here I was with my giant binder of all three courses studying my wee brain out.

Everyone is in class, we get the exam, and it's only 3 pages long, with LOTS of space for answers. "WTF?" So I look it over (as I do with all tests) and realize it is full of what should be common sense answers for anyone who works as a Makeup Artist.

In thirty minutes I wrote it, checked it over twice, and handed it in (it likely would have taken less time but my arthritis makes handwriting difficult and slow). Then Lisa and I went to Timmie's at the cafeteria so I could treat myself to a hot chocolate. I was home by 8:30pm.

I even got to watch the new episode of Cake Boss at 9pm! I love that show.

So now I'm off of school until January, when I'll take Paramedical and Camouflage.

So here is what I need to take to complete my courses and get my two certificates (Makeup Artistry and Applied Cosmetics):

Makeup Artistry
Makeup I
Makeup II
Theatrical and Special Effects
Paramedical and Camouflage
Business and Marketing
Colour Theory
Makeup: Bridal Glamour and Runway
Portfolio Development

Applied Cosmetics:
Professional Selling

What I have left to take is:
Special Effects
Business and Marketing
Portfolio Development
Professional Selling

So if I do one per semester, not counting the summer since there usually isn't a class available then, I should be done by Spring 2011 (a year ahead of what I thought it would take). :) Nice, eh?

So, onto the totally awesome giveaway!

Mrs. B at Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom is giving away a $25 gift certificate for EcoStoreUSA! So head over HERE to sign up for the giveaway (and don't forget to read the awesome REVIEW Mrs. B did on their Vanilla Shampoo and Vanilla Conditioner.

Congrats on your test - I'm sure you aced it! Nice that you were able to complete it so quickly.

And how great to know you'll be done sooner than expected! It really gives you something to look forward to.

I hope you'll do the Special Effects class before next Halloween so you can show us some pics of your face-art!

Thanks! I likely will do SFX before then, so it should be fun. I DID do some cool face art this Hallowe'en on myself and a friend of mine. I should actually post the photos up. :)

Congratulations! It's always so nice to hand in that final test, isn't it?
