crazy dream

March 1st, 2006 at 01:36 pm

Since this publishing job thing isn't really working out too well (unless I move out east), I have been daydreaming a bit.

Today I stumbled across a professional makeup artist school. Being a makeup artist is my second chosen profession. I used to do makeup for all the school plays and have done makeup for weddings, parties, etc. I love, love, love makeup.

I'd have to move to Hollywood and shell out $12,000 for a 12-month program (four nights per week). After that, though, I could do theatre makeup, or movies, or fashion shows. It would be so awesome to do prosthetic makeup - I built my Halloween costume one year, and it rocked.

I probably wouldn't make any more than I am right now, I'd have to move to LA, and who knows what kind of work I would find after I finished the program. Still...it's tempting...and hard to make that leap. SO is already all for it! Wink

Im a school teacher by career however I was introduced to a "dream" and was able to financial be able to fulfill dreams in my life as well as my children's through this opportunity. You might take a look at my website. There is a sizzle opportunity section takes about 8 minutes.

    Wow...it it's something you'd really be interested in, go for it! Having said that, the devil's advocate in me would say the following: 1) What's SO think about this - would he be willing to move too?, 2) Do you need to move to Hollywood to do it or are there other schools in other places?, 3) Do you know enough about the school? Do they help you find a job in the industry, what's their placement rate like? 4) Can you get a feel for the workload? If you're going to school 4 nights a week, could you get a job doing something else during the day/weekend? Having read your posts for so long now it definitely seems like you'd like a change of pace, both career and location-wise. I hope it works out for you...

    It sounds like a path that CAN work, but the question is it for you? Can you test the waters by volunteering, say, with a theater troupe in MN to make sure you have a passion for it? I would just hate it if you made a career decision based on a reaction and the fact that its "nothing like my last job".
