=)

I received notification that I am officially an intern/assistant of the floral industry!!! =) I shall not name the company, but I will say this: this is really a great opportunity for me! The designer is so talented! She basically makes dreams and fantasies come to life with flowers!

Now I shall wait for the call from hair industry next month. Lets hope things work out because I want to do everything! Growing up, I kept hearing people doing what they love. I believe that I am now one them. Then again, I am just getting started and may just be in the honeymoon phase.

When I make the money, I shall treat my parents to a fun vacation!

Happy Valentine's day!

I feel so lucky in life lately! Things are coming together and there is so much hope for a good and happy future. Firstly, my two interviews for both the floral industry and hair industry seems to be positive. The only problem would be catering to their schedules, which would take up all my days. I am currently going to school too, so there is very little time as it is. The floral designer I want to intern for is so amazingly talented! I love her style and would love to learn from her. I will help her with some arrangements next Wednesday for a wedding and I really really REALLY hope that I satisfy her! >_< I am nervous, but very excited to start! If things goes well, she will take me under her wing. Wish me luck! As for my hair interview, I went there twice. The first time was to get to know me and what I could offer the salon. That went fine. I feel comfortable in that atmosphere and really like that they have order in the place. I thrive in that kind of environment. My second interview was to demonstrate my skills as a hairstylist. The manager was very impressed with me and told me she will call me next month when their big sale is over so that she will have time to train me. I am excited!!! I love my career choices! I love being creative and spreading beauty around me. Its both fun and for-filling.

While at school today, I received a call from mom that Lo came by with gifts! He and I are both quite busy and he has a crazy school schedule that takes up all his time. So, I did not expect anything today. BOY! =) I came home to a cup of Purple Kow milk tea, pad thai dinner, flowers and CAKE!!!!! LALALAAA LOVE HIM! I can only imagine his insane trip to get all these items. Mind you, the stores/restaurants are not close to each other. He is still in school as I type this post. Poor guy! He is my first boyfriend and my last. Why bother looking for another when I hit the jackpot on the first try? Lucky me! When I start working, I will be his sugar mama! Can't wait to have a healthy cash flow again so we can go out and have fun!! I miss work. I used to work so much!

Like the arrangement? He bought me a hand-tied bouquet. I took it apart and arranged them like so: into a heart shape! ^__^ Skills baby!

count down.. pass or fail?

oh my gosh.. test date is tomorrow!!!! I am soooo nervous and trying to organize all the information of the practical and written exams. I really hope that I pass!!!!! My preparation to sleep early took two days of work. I would sleep around 3-4am in the morning and wake up around 7-9am to ensure that I would collapse when I hit the bed. To further ensure my exhaustion, I have been to the gym to drain more energy. I am a walking zombie now. All this effort so that I will be completely well rested for my exam because if not, I may not sleep at all due to anxiety.

hope that I pass!!!! GO GO GO!

its superbowl sunday; i wonder who will win.

Andre in Wonderland

Andre all freaky =). Definitely not his best picture. I should add that I did not change anything about it either. He was all ready for his walk on a rainy day.
