I never would have thought a year ago that I would be sitting here studying welding,
Or being excited to tour a mill this weekend,
But I am.
I never thought after having been in the hair industry for so many years that I'd want to branch off and decide to start all over in a very, very different type of industry.
I guess I'd have to say, Its been exciting, and overwhelming all at once.
In December I went to VIU to discuss the idea of upgrading for Power Engineering,
After having several discussions with a much loved friend I decided to embark on a two year plan, and in turn move to Calgary in order to attend SAIT.
Upon meeting the counselor, She informed me that VIU was also beginning this new course,
Which was goo news, but she had no idea when the course started.
I got on the interest list and continued on my path toward SAIT.
I had to keep this from several people I worked with, especially my boss, And I hated how much of a mafia I felt like I was in, But my clients were encouraging, and I loved that.
In February I finally got some word what was happening and then found out that this $11,000 course was beginning in less than a month. And I thought I had more upgrading to do before then.
I believe I work better when I am absolutely THROWN into something,
And this was basically what happened.
As things took a huge downturn with an absolutely atrocious coworker,
I heard from VIU about my acceptance.
I've never liked salon life, it usually breeds an idea that being a rude and self serving jerk is the best way to be,
Now thats not true in all situations, There are lots that are not, but my most former employer seemed to thrive off the idea that as catty as you can be, do it.
And I hated that, its my belief that you should get somewhere off of your personality and ability to perform the tasks at hand, Not because your full of yourself and can convince others of it, Or that you have the ability to tell other people what would make them look better.
I know that is a fault of mine in this industry, But I honestly believed that said ideals would be more of an asset to the world than a downside. The truth of the fact is I never played the nasty bitch game well enough.
Which leads me to now, I'm really excited to be embarking on the road toward a career in Canada's Oil and Gas processing industry eventually, Once an Albertan always an Albertan and that just seems to run in my blood.
The idea of having a career that challenge my mental ability .......
will finish this later
