First Week Done :)

 Well I survived the first week of school! What a relief. I have been able to get up at 6am and still function to my surprise. The first couple of days was basic familiarizing us with the program. . . .letting us know of additional fees that needed paid (bleh) and we got our VERY expensive kit & books which frankly didn't look like $600 worth of stuff. lol. I did get nice high quality tools and materials no product really so I'll have to start aquiring inventory as I go. Luckily I get everything at wholesale since I am a "beauty professional" (in training). 

Today was the first day of "hands on" stuff as well as a couple of tests on 2 chapters of our book. I passed both tests with 100% which I think I may have been one of the only ones in class who did. I was pretty pumped. We learned the 5 different shapes of nails and had to file tips to those 5 shapes then we worked on NAIL ART! The brushes were horridly well used and in terrible condition so I am going to invest in some nice detail brushes along with a stripping brush that actually works. My art was well. . .for my first time Its not too terrible but there is plenty of room for improvement. It's a starting point. I'm excited and liking the program. There is only 6 of us in class so that's great we get a lot of the instructors time. 

Here are my first attempts at "nail art". . .

For a beginner you are looking mighty fine to me! How do you handle the nail fumes with transplant? I hate the smell of nail places.

Where to start to learn about my transplant!

Thank You for taking the time to read my blog.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
