Beckey is a Cosmetologist.

So it’s official. I’m a professional. I passed my test on Monday and I’ve been recuperating ever since. I mean really, talk about a horrifying experience. I narrowly escaped my own death with the constant heart palpitations, nausea with explosive poo, and my lactating toe.  But I made it through the day with a passing grade and a death grip on my new and beautiful cosmetology license.


You’re proud of me aren’t you? You’re beaming with delight and majesty, like a pleased mama.”But Beckey,” you wonder. “What are you going to do now?”

Well, I started hair school before I got pregnant, which was three long years ago. I had a different path in front of me. But after I got pregnant, I stopped school, and shoved my face in a hole in the ground for 9 months. Then I waited another 9 months, and I thought: I should go back to school and finish what I started. So that’s what this license is, it’s a completion; an end to something I started.

And then you stop and think, “Wait… you hair always looks so scraggly and in desperate need of a deep conditioning treatment, how on earth can you say you’re a hairstylist??” 

While I can’t argue that point, I can tell you to suck it, and remind you that hairstylists are pretty cool and slightly intimidating, and you’re just jealous.

  1. Congrats! I’ve yet to start something and finish it. Unless finishing three pregnancies counts. So maybe I have. Whatever.

  2. I completely agree with the part about hairstylists being cool and slightly intimidating. It’s hard to be one of us.

    A huge congratulations to you. Today was my last day of school and I take my test in two weeks – crazy. I hope my results are as great as yours. Miss and love you guys.

  3. Well congratulations, you cosmetologist! I am proud of you, even more because you finished what you started. I look forward to pictures of some wacky shit hairdos.
