Hello all! For those of you who read my last blog know that my great aunt passed away from cancer. I got through the funeral in one piece. It was really heartbreaking but I know she is in a better place. On a good note I am graduating college at the end of the month. I will finally be a cosmetologist!! I am so excited but so scared at the same time. I am going to take the summer off to spend with my daughters but I hope the job hunt doesn't stress me out too much! Everyone wish me luck on passing my boards and finding a great job! Thank you all for being here. :-)

Congratulations to you on both counts. If I remember right, your aunt's death was extremely sudden, wasn't it? I'll bet there weren't many dry eyes. Good for you for being there for your family and yourself and dealing with a very sad situation all right.

Bravo on your upcoming graduation. That must be really exciting (and a little nerve-wracking) to think about the next step. You've made it through your program, and you'll certainly get through the job hunt well too. And what a special treat to think of spending the summer focussing on your girls!

You have my deepest sympathy at the loss of your loved one.
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation and kudos to you for a job well done.  You deserve to take the summer off to be with your girls.
You will find a job, the place that hires you will be lucky to have you.

Hi Cosmogirl,
I am very sorry to hear of your aunt's passing, but as you said she is in a better place now and not in any pain.  Good for you on dealing with this so well!  Not an easy thing to do.
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, what an accomplishment!  You now deserve to spend some time this summer with your family and I know that your job hunt will go well.  As Kitt said, whoever hires you will be very lucky to have you.
