Have I mentioned on this blog that I am a licensed cosmetologist? Not a beautician, mind you...that title went out with blue rinses and roller sets...but a cosmetologist. I do not currently work as a cosmetologist...I still own a salon and I still maintain an active license but I do not work in the cosmetic industry anymore. I am way to busy running my photo studio and tending to my children!
With that said, when July rolls around every year it is time to renew my license. I keep my license current because if I should ever want to work again as a cosmetologist I don't want to have to pay more to become active and I definitely do not ever want to take my licensing exam again.
However, I have been so busy lately that I hadn't gotten around to taking my required 6 continuing education hours. Or should I say I have procrastinated like the devil to keep from having to sit through a 6 hour course or to read pages and pages of boring written material to take a test. So just for kicks today I decided to try to take the exam without reading the study material. Lo and behold the test was true or false. I shimmied through the questions by skimming and guessing really fast whether it sounded true or false. Voila' I recieved a passing 87 percent...not too shabby for not reading the study material and having been out of cosemtology school for 8 years and not having worked in the field for 2 years. I'm quite proud of myself...not so much for passing the test...but for saving myself 6 wasted hours and for not having procrastinated until July the 31st...like I did last year...
