Beckey is a Cosmetologist.


March 26, 2009

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.


just in time, because i’m running around looking like a hot mess!

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

Good for you!

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.
