5 Bucks

Hey everyone- so if you were wondering, life with no hair school is WONDERFUL. I do a lot of Netflix, cooking, cleaning, sleeping in, eyelash clients, eating and shopping. I love it all, even the cleaning. I could live this life forever. I'm not in any rush to find a job(obviously) but I sent out a few resumes to see if there were any jobs out there. I got one interview and then a follow-up technical interview where I had to do a cut and color (stressful/terrifying). Things seemed hopeful, then I got rejected and it hurt more than I thought it would. But I am 92% recovered and moving forward.

 I'm going to send out some more resumes since there are a zillion salons in Utah County. Maybe I'll get a job, but so much of me doesn't even want to try anymore. That first rejection has made me second guess all my abilities as a stylist and even question my personality. Did they just not like me? I'm pretty normal, right? They didn't even pay attention to me during my 2nd interview. I'm straight out of school, don't they understand I'm slow and a little nervous to be interviewing? They told me that they felt I needed more experience and that they were going in a different direction.
You were hiring for an assistant who just sweeps hair, shampoo's clients, and blows dry people's hair and who you pay $5 dollars an hour. So as you can see my morale is a little low. I'm not in the mood to try again. So, for now I'm going back to my Netflix.

Ok, maybe I'm only 79% recovered.

But today is a new day. I know I have something to offer other salons. I am going to try again. I know this is a necessary process for the field I have chosen. There is something better out there for me. 


  1. Oh, Kelli. Rejection is the worst!!!! I'm sorry you didn't get the job. There is definitely something better for you out there. The thing they said about experience and going a different direction is just code for "My niece is quiting her Jamba Juice job and we said she could work here." You should not take it personally.

    I think it must be extra hard for you because you hardly ever get rejected! You are one of the most likable, easy to get along with, funny, friendly, hard-working and talented people ever. You completely excel at everything you do. Don't doubt your abilities. Just think of this as a trial Heavenly Father is giving you so that you can understand and sympathize with those of us who get rejected all of the time. :)

  2. Just stay at home and watch Netflix. Robbie will make enough money to support that. :) we miss you guys. Good luck on the job front. I hate applying for jobs. I feel like I always get rejected. Love you!

  3. Kelli!! They are silly and didn't know what they had. You are the best ever!! It probably would've turned out to be horrible, and you are going to end up getting something way better. Love and miss you! :)

  4. Woo hoo you are going to find a great job that you enjoy, I know it!! I'm so glad you're enjoying the good life of relaxation!
