Swallow tail -- school is the best.  Even if you are un certain, move mountains, get back in school.

I was floundering, seriously, desperately struggling.  I might not become an airplane mechanic, but I am learning all sorts of stuff and it's making me a better person.

The more experiences and education you have the better you are.

Go for it, keep us posted, let us know how it goes!

Just a thought, but you might have a look at "Jayber Crow" by Wendell Berry.

Best of luck to you, whichever path you choose!

I also recently came across this amazing vid on Vimeo. It's a short documentary about an ol timey barbershop in rural Drexel, NC where they have bluegrass get togethers in the backroom.

(and sorry, Swallotail, I'm not trying to conflate your career choices with rural romanticism or anything, it's just that your post made me think of these two references. Again best o luck).

My Father was a barber (amongst other various career choices) in South Africa in the mid-fifties.  He just walked past the shop, saw the sign advertising a barber's apprentice, went in and 'had a go' (as you did in those days, probably) and within three years, He was a fully fledged barber.  Ending up running several salons to boot!  I still have some of his original hairdressing items, including some deadstock scissors.
I say go for it Swallowtail, what do you have to lose!?  It may not work out as planned, but then again it well do, or lead onto something else. 
 
You only get out of life what you put in, I say.

Pro tip for dudes who typically put lotion in their hair as the only styling product (i mean like, straight up hand lotion... apparently a lot of dudes do this?) use Argon Oil instead. It is THE DREAM.  And also not that expensive.

Do it! Better to try something that scares you than not.

Looks like i am going to, getting ready to lay the down payment right on down!
I know i will fall in love with it, i sort of already am.

proulxsie, thank you for the encouragement, i just have been a wondering musician for the last years so it is "new" to me to commit to something like this.


I have used lotion before, didnt like the effect, but a tiny grapeseel oil works great, especially for wavy hair like mine.
But when i want to have a nice combed slicked up with side parting, i use layrite.
