Big News and a Plea for Help
Greetings, gentle readers! I have some big news today, and will be brief sharing it as I am super excited to get things rolling …
After meditating on the matter for some time now, I have finally figured out the next phase of my journey. I am going back to school. No, not for a masters degree or anything so time intensive. I am going to get my training and certification in esthetics. In layman’s terms I will be learning all about skincare. I’m super excited. It’s something I’ve considered doing for years, but the timing never seemed right. But now it does! There’s a program in town, and it’s on the bus schedule, so I will actually be able to get to it without a car. It’s not quite a year long, so I won’t feel like I’m tying myself down to one location for an excessive amount of time. And the class hours fit with my current schedule beautifully. Plus, I’m still in time to make the deadline for the fall semester! It’s destiny, I tell you!
The only hard part is funding the tuition. While it isn’t a grand sum, it is grander than my budget allows at present with my measly schedule of a few hours of scattered part time work each week. While I am looking around for more part-time work that will still fit in with the new school schedule, I am swallowing up my pride and asking for help. (I’m not very good at asking for help, so please bear with me if I don’t do it so eloquently.)
I have set up an indiegogo campaign to try to raise funds for tuition and supplies costs. Here is the link!
Please do not feel obligated to donate, but if you are moved to do so, I will forever hold you in great esteem and gratitude. I will very likely need folks on whom I can practice my new skills, too. So, if you are local, get ready. Preference will be given to those who contribute to the campaign, of course, but I’ll do my best to fit in all interested parties at least once.
Please take a moment to read through the campaign spiel. If you are moved to donate, THANK YOU!! If not, then thank you for at least taking the time to consider.
This is one more step closer to living my dreams, people! I’m so glad I get to share it with such a lovely audience. I would love to hear about your dreams, too, so tell me all about them in the comments section, okay?! We can keep each other motivated!
