“A Day In The Life of an Evening Esthie” by Lacy Woolward
This assignment was given to me by Delmar to let everyone out there know how a day in the life of an evening Esthetic Student looks. In this case particularly, my life.
We are a small class of only four. Four ladies who live a full day life outside of Delmar. I’m not really like my fellow classmates. I’m not a mother and I do not run my own business, but rather, I work a full-time job and then come to Delmar. My life starts at 5:30 am every single morning when my alarm rings in that annoying beep that makes me want to fling it across the room. From there I have a bustling morning to get my work things ready, then prepare my backpack for school. Making sure I have all that I need for the entire day before I leave my cozy home at 7:00 am.
I constantly watch the clock for quitting time. Dramatic – I know, but when that time comes I know I can leave and make my way to Delmar. To my other life. I live for the quitting whistle. As I drive away I can feel the weight of the day lift, I grin, turn up the radio a little more and jive my way to school. As I make that last traffic light I know that I get to spend the next four hours doing something I love with people that make the experience that much better.
I didn’t wake up one morning and realize that this was exactly what I wanted to do, I came to this decision over a while. What I didn’t expect was the joy I feel in these four hours at Delmar with my classmates and my Teacher. I find joy in creating the perfect smile line, smoothing down a heel, and folding the perfected fitted sheet. To which I am still perfecting how to do!
Waking up at 5:30 am and not coming home till 9:30 is rough, but it is in no comparison to the life that I am trying to build with Delmar giving me the tools to do so. The camaraderie that is there in us evening esthies is something we are all grateful to have, like my class mate before me said “We are the bestie of the esthies!” and I know we are. Go evening class!
no gimmicks. just great education
