a decision

Yes, i did it! I have decided to move to salt lake city. I feel really good and happy inside. (for the most part) (I'll tell you the only two bad things in a bit).

So, I heard about this massage school that was highly recommended by massage therapists in salt lake. I inquired at the school, and found out that the semester started that day. So I started the next day. strangely, this is exactly how i got into beauty school. I didn't think about it- i just went to the school the 2nd day of class and began my life in the crazy world of beauty. The decision to go to beauty school has been the best financial decision of my life. People were shocked when i did it, and even now i sometimes freak out that i do hair. Mostly when i look in the mirror and realize that i haven't combed my hair in 2 days... it doesn't really fit my personality or something. and yet it does.

I think this blog is going to be a rambler. so sorry. But the other day in massage school, a girl in my class was saying how her friend in seattle decided to go to beauty school. She thought it was crazy because he wants to work in the healing industry, and the hair industry seems like the furthest thing from that. As i was thinking about that, i realized that the hair industry is one where you help people. I love my job because of that. I love that people pour their lifes out on me and let me give them feedback, or just listen. Its so fun and depressing. anyway, im just putting a plug in for hair doers. its a really amazing job. but i am so excited to get into this new massage stuff.

And, i got a new job at a salon is slc! im so excited! ill only work fridays and saturdays, but tell people to come to me... if they dare. Im actually a little good at it. I charge 80$ for cut and color, and 30 for a cut. Its a good deal in slc.

My Brother John married his love, Maryssa 2 weekends ago. The day was warm, and they were so beautiful! i love them both so much. They never read this, but im just really excited for them to be wed. And yes, calli my 6 year old niece caught the bouquet. the little bum face.

I am now going to tell you the sad and bad things. First, eric and i aren't dating anymore. I haven't talked much about our relationship because i don't like telling personal stuff on here. but I miss him, and i love who he is and what he has taught me about love and communication. He loved me without judgement. It's a fulfilling way to be loved.

Second, my bed is not directly on the floor and i am really uncomfortable with that. I still look in my closet before i go to sleep every night, and when my bed isn't on the floor i have to look under there too. The thing is, nothing "living" could actually fit under the bed. (its only about 5 inches off the floor) so mostly i'm scared of ghosts or skinny monsters. I woke up at 5 am this morning and stepped off my bed and felt cold air coming from under my bed. I don't like it. i hate it.

I'm so glad you came to slc, now maybe you can see me more! I'm the same way about scary things and spaces. Pack stuff under your bed, to take up the space. I quit watching scary movies when my first babe was born. Getting up in the middle of the night, in the dark to feed my baby was too scary for me for some reason. Love ya!

Glad to hear you're in SLC. You should do my hair sometime- I work downtown. I'm sorry to hear about you and Eric. I'm sure that's really hard. It was great talking to you the other day.

!?! I didn't know you moved! Our family is close but we never tell each other anything :) I'm glad! Where are you living?

Also, I think your personality fits your hair styling abilities perfectly. You've always been the comforter in our family, the person who smooths things over when it gets rocky. You are Very good at making people feel better about themselves and at giving advice. You are genuine and sympathetic. Working in a salon is a perfect place to put all those things to use. I think you have blessed hundreds of lives simply by cutting hair. I really do.

Beautiful wedding pictures. That day was so great.

I'm also very glad you chose to do massage school. I knew your life would pick up again quickly and it really has. I'm happy for you and your new ideas and people and places.

Life is good.

Love you Sara

Sar sar. I love this blog. Your blog that is. You're so funny and honest.

That is awesome that you're going to massage school, and I think you're more than a little good at cutting hair. I will tell my sisters to come to you. Where is the salon? How do we find you?

I don't know if this would work for you, but when my sister was afraid of monsters we made a 'monster spray' from a room spray. We labeled the bottle 'monster spray' and she could spray under her bed and in her closet every night. I'm kidding. Kind of. :) It's no fun to be scared.
