COVID-19 Layoff: The End

Well this will officially be my last COVID blog as my personal quarentine is finished.

As most of you know if you follow, my place of work officially opened on Friday June 19th. I was nervous building up to the day because of the obvious virus going around but also I didn’t do hair for 3 months. Now I was getting thrown back into it all while the world seemed like it was ending.

Friday morning I had time to get ready, walk Drax and attempt to play with him. As soon as I started to get ready Drax knew I was going back, he went right to his crate and sat in there until I attempted to get him out with cookies. I had to move his crate into the livingroom because that’s where the AC is, once I got him out he went to his bed and just gave me those puppy eyes. I played with him but he just wanted me to hold his head. I had to move and when I turned around he was back in his crate – needless to say I left because he clearly wanted to be in the crate and I didn’t want to make things worse.

I got to work earlier because I wanted to clean my station and my tools one more time before I started work for the day. I sat in the back for ten mintues avoiding putting on the mask. Eventually I sucked it up and put it on, at first it was weird then eventually you got use to it being on your face. The masks however are hot as hell, talking is hard but everyone wants to talk at the salon so I did but eventually I was getting too hot so my hair went up and talking went to a minimum. The first day I ran an hour behind because my last client had a lot of hair and wasn’t booked for the right service but it all workout.

Saturday was a bit better, it was still a busy day but everyone was getting in the grove of things. I was on time for most of my clients, last one only ran 5 mins behind but I made up the time later. All in all it was a good start but still creepy because in the back of your head you know there’s a possibility of being exposed even though we are taking those precautions.

After those first two days I’ve never been so sore in my life. It was all the areas that I haven’t been using during the quarentine like standing for 8 hours so my feet, legs and back were sore. I can home iced my knee and got Dave to massage my back and feet (after I showered) which helped big time (he’s a keeper). Now were back to work on Tuesday for a full week.

It’s still crazy to think that this is going on in the world, who would have thought but we’re getting through it and staying safe. Everyone wash your hands, wear a mask and stay home if you are not feeling well.

That’s it, that’s all. Thank you for all sticking around with me through this! Now I have to get back to regular blogs! Stay tuned.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-One & Seventy-Two

Day Seventy-One:

This day was pretty uneventful. My morning routine was pretty much the same with walking Drax and attempting to eat healthy. I did have a doctors appointment so I got ready for that, mask in hand and drove. I ended up being 30mins early because normally the road the doctor is on is ususal extremely busy but now in the pandemic is kinda busy. Anyways I sat in the car just chilling until it started to rain so I decided to put my mask on and head in. It was a quick trip, in and out and I was on my way!

I came home to Dave and Drax laying in bed so I laid down with them and we laughed at Tik Tok videos, I don’t make them I just watch them if you were curious.

I waited all day to get the motivation to work out and I finally did but it was at the end of the day and I was distracted so it wasn’t the best workout. I ordered some cute stuff from Gymshark since my resistance bands are awful, I’m excited for those to show up. That was pretty much it!

Day Seventy-Two:

This morning routine was all messed up! Dave didn’t start work until later so Drax woke him up and he took him out earlier than I normally would. Eventually I woke up, ate breakfast and decided to take Drax on a long walk, it’s about 2k. When we got back Drax pretty much just hung out and so did I until Dave came home.

I again was having trouble with the motivation so I waited until 730pm ish to start my workout, I did glutes and abs and now my butt cheeks hurt! That’s a good thing though! Dave and I started to watch Space Force and made dinner which I snacked too much yesterday but that’s okay, it’s only my first week.

Dave ended up falling asleep on the couch and I was tired too so we went to bed early (we’re getting old).

There was a creepy storm here though.

My friend who faces the other way told me the sky looked black so I went onto my balcony to see. It was pretty cool to watch but the storm was lame, my dog wasn’t even scared.

That’s it, that’s all!

Maeg’s Hair

In 2016 I decided to enroll in Aveda Institute Canada for my Hairstyling diploma. It was an extremely long 10 months, 5 days a week packed learning experience but it’s the best hairschool you can go to in Ontario.

In May 2017 I graduated from Aveda Institute Canada! I decided to take one week off from work and school then I would apply to Jobs. Luckily I found Metropolis Hair Studio in Woodbridge, Ontario, a week after graduating I got the job!

Did you know on my page (depending what device you’re using) you can see my hair Instagram that showcases my work? If you are using a computer/laptop it’s on the right hand side. If you’re using a phone/tablet scroll all the way to the bottom and you’ll see it OR click theĀ contact button.

If you’re in the Woodbridge or Vaughan or surrounding areas feel free to book an appointment with me! #SelfPromoting

If you’re not in the area, follow my page! I would really appreciate it!

I’m Alive!

Hey Everyone!

I know I haven’t written in a really long time and I aplogize for that but it is because I’m currently enrolled at Aveda Institute Toronto! It’s an intense hairstylist program that I’m loving. When the Christmas break coming up I’m going to try to write and get you all updated!

I have one update for you which is I cut my hair! As you know I had pretty long hair and one day a student and I decided it needed to be cut so we did it that day! We took about 6-12 inches off!

There it is! Well I will hopefully be writing a lot in the upcoming break to get you updated!

Thanks for reading,
