Yay and Hooray!
I, The Apprentice, am ironically applying for an apprenticeship. Specifically, a hairstyling apprenticeship. And I'm so excited!! Where I live, you can get an apprenticeship in highschool. To write the first-level hairstylists' exam, you need four senior-level hairstyling credits, a required amount of hours training in a salon (I already work in a salon so I may even be able to backdate my 450-odd hours from last year!), and you progress through a skills booklet that your employer signs off. So right now you can all wish me luck, I am filling out lots and lots of paperwork, getting reference letters, etc.
