yes, the title is from Silence of the Lambs, but that’s the quote that popped into my mind when i started to write this so, there you have it.
Well – I passed my Chemical Texturizing test with a 100 – YAY me 🙂 also made a 10/10 on my practical – YAY ME Again! All of this was to the chagrin of my instructor. I think it irritates him how quickly i test. Oh well. In my mind, either you know it or you don’t. staring at the paper won’t change the answers. Luckily, I know it, so I’m able to test quickly. He actually told us that 90% of people who rush to finish first actually fail their exams. HAHA guess I’m in that 10 percent that actually knows what I’m doing and is able to answer quickly & correctly. It took me less than 3 minutes to complete the 30 question, multiple choice test.
Coming up – SKIN & NAILS (hence the lotion thing).
Next week we’re going to be starting on our Skin & Nails chapters. I’m not sure which one is first, but either way I’m SO happy to be getting away from the chemicals.
We’re going to be learning about facials and pedicures and waxing and manicures… whoooo hoooo!
Also, I know i said it was going to be 5 or 6 weeks before I was on the floor, but i think its actually less than that!?! wow, time is just flying by!
I’m a little upset because they aren’t letting the part-time students take clients on Saturdays right now. They are having the students that are on the floor take Theory classes instead. The day time students aren’t coming on Saturdays right now either. Supposedly its only temporary, but all of the instructors are saying they aren’t sure now… It was supposed to be a 6 weeks thing, but even though there are only 2 more weeks of that six weeks, they keep saying its going to last another 6 weeks. It kind of sucks for us, because since we’re about to go out on the floor – it means that we can only take client M-Thurs from 5:30-9…which means our first real client would be at 6pm and the last client we can take is at 8 b/c we have to be done by 9…which as a new student is tough. Not to mention it is limiting the amount of sales/services we can do towards our STAR Rewards…. but I’m sure its all going to come out in the wash so to speak.
I don’t know about ya’ll, but I don’t know many people willing to come out at 8pm to get their hair done during the week… That’s only really giving us 2 1/2-3 hours a night to work on clients, minus whatever time we have to spend in the classroom too…that’s less than 10 hours a week to actually work on clients.
Yesterday, I personally had to turn away 5 services because there were no students there that could perform them…not to mention the countless people that called. Last Saturday they turned away about 30 from what I understand… argh…
On the brighter side of things – they have hired another instructor, so we’re really excited that they are really striving to get a full staff.
the kinks and quirks are working out… slowly… I’ll be happy when they get a performance floor manager and we can get on with starting out Student Council! I keep reading all these great things other campuses are doing that we can’t participate in yet…. but, i was told they are trying to have someone by the beginning of March and that we were to give them a month to settle in and then we could start our student council… YAY.. so hopefully by April we’ll be able to do it.
