The Original Pretty Boy

a letter from the original pretty boy...

so, akon's singing about how it "don't matter" on my itunes, but i thought i'd fill you in on my life...

you know all the doings, the happenings and the absolutely fabulousness that makes your favourite l.a.m.b. go crazy...

so, there's times like this when i write this little e-note and say every.word.out.loud.

i just get excited at all the things that are (in fact) cemented and happening for real, but let me tell you something.

i'm so tired!

it's about 11:30 and i got a million things to do...after this only 999,999 left...so, that's good, right?

read on...e-mail, luv on me...if you're close, squeeze on me...or just holla atcha boy!

get connected show 2007... yeah, i'm in the show! thought i'd share that...

oh well!!!

so, i decided to turn in my paperwork and be in the competition at the 7th annual get connected hair, skin and nail show here in colorado on may sixth..to be held in castle rock. i want to go shopping after the event, so bad...

oh, anyway, let me tell you...

i'm in the men's cutting category, let's see if i win for my sharp-cutting skills, texturing techniques and use of styling projects. if it's goes bad, i won't tell you..

you know, cut myself, bleed all over the model's blonde hair, can't find a band-aid and trip over an extension cord or something running out the door in embarrasment!

i doubt that will happen, remember, i rule...remember?

well, we'll see, it's gonna be fun!

i want to be a platform artist by the time i'm 25, so this will be lots of fun...very very american idol, isn't it?

manuscript by josh.cooley starts ... um... this week! thought i'd tell you that.

yeah so, i'm starting the calendar and work schedule for finally getting on that long-wanted projected: pretty boy education by josh cooley...

it's in the works, starting...hmm...this week!

not to be a big old nerd or anything, but i'm excited to start writing again...especially this project. i cant' wait! there's so much info and so much i'm trying to do in one book about...well, being pretty...duh!!


i'll keep you posted. i'm filtering alot of entertainment and not looking at much more than maybe (literally) three hours of tv a week and been listening to lots of bbc and npr and reading kids books and cosmetology research reports... (you know, i just proof-read that and i think i need a date or need happy hour or something...i sound nerdy...LOL!) anyway...lots to come...i rock in this subject and need to get it all in writing now before my gingko biloba is needed to remind me how to slip on my designer loafers! (bad joke i know!)

ps: this studio in the pic is not mine, but it's sooooooooo haute couture, so pretty, modern, simple, harajuku-inspired. i just want to buy some comme des garcons and play gwen stefani and bjork records really loud, draw, sing and write on my mac there...so haute!!

Letting Loose :: Blurbs, bits of rants and excitement that make no sense at all...(just read it!)

there is so much going on in my life as you can see...it's sometimed quite overwhelming and, in the end, it's the beginning of a career...

i haven't felt this happy to start over in a long time...i know, i know, it's like i say that all the time (i do! i know i do!), but this time, i think i might actually mean it. <----that's a horrible joke, i know. oh well, love me or hate me...that is the question; if you love me- thank you, if you hate me ... (fill in the blank, you know the song!)

i have large list of events i'm attending just this month. the cosmetology industry, early childhood field and everyone in between is quite demanding of me. this friday, i'm atteninding an appreciation dinner i was helped plan and was on the committee and i also sat on creative board in charge of public relations. fun fun! on the 20th, we are bringing a speaker from Florida to our local college campus to talk about brain development (exciting stuff, luvs). there's the week of the young child's fun fair on april 28th and then may comes around and i'm in denver cheering on my girl, Gwen Stefani!!! in early june, i finally get a cool cool...cool...vacation, really?

i just said that (oh sorry, typed it). i can't wait.

i was honord on the 30th of march with an award from my facility for involvement in the success of our center here in Pueblo and it was just pure joy! i was very very surprised and very very honoured. it's nice to be wanted and appreciated (for a minute at least!) as if there wasn't alot going on, i've got that portfolio-thing dangling in my head, you know? i there and look at the plans and production and budget and just roll my eyes, but it will get done. my graduation from PSC is schedule for sometime between august to october of this year. that's kind of scary for me, honestly. let's not go there. in the meantime, i need to create some business cards, book a photoshoot and becomes huger than life like i've always wanted...i'm gonna be 23 this year and it hit me the other day...wasn't i just 18 yesterday? anyway, it's been a night of tasks.

i need to get to my loo and clean it out, i've gone colour bottles, magazines and facials all over the place. on top of that, my binders of projects, bills, other-things and work for both jobs is collecting on my desk, oh yeah, and laundry! i just finished a frappe and i'm listening to fischerspooner's "never win". in a minute, it's bbc news and some npr podcasts. (yes, i'm a nerd like that! i watch very little tv, listen to nation public radio, british news and read fashion mags in spanish!)

oh god, did i mention all the prep for "get connected" i have to do? goodnight for now. e-mail me or myspace me if you have that...love you all.
