My Journey Begins…Tomorrow!

Hello all, Ms. Cannibal here! As of this past February I’m officially middle aged–and I’m over it already. That is to say, midlife crisis time!!!

I should preface this with: I have a good job. A career even, with full benefits, 4wks vacation, and a pension (a motherfucking pension!!!).  But, well, I’m bored.

Enter my love of nail art and polish.

So I’ve decided to start going to night school!  When I was little, my father went to night school. He became a lawyer!  This isn’t nearly as lofty, but a lot more fun IMO…I’m going to go to cosmetology school, specifically to become a certified Nail Technician!  <cue the applause>

But seriously, I’m pretty stoked!

The first step was locating a school within a reasonable distance from me. As I live in NYC, that was fairly easy as there are several. I’ve picked Christine Valmy, as they’re located in Manhattan and had some pretty strong reviews.

The next step starts tomorrow, when I take a physical tour of the school and meet with an admissions advisor–Erica.  We already had a lovely chat on the phone, but meeting her in person and touring the school will cement this dream into a reality.  I can’t wait!
