Martae: I didn't find my love for the shape until my graduation day came because I went to Northridge Beauty College and got my nails done and I got stiletto tips.
Martae: Stilettos, so I'm just like, oh my god. I'm never going back to coffin or square or anything but I do go back to coffin because I actually like them a lot.
Jessica: I like coffin too.
Martae: Speaking of Northridge Beauty College that's where I'm gonna go because I like the vibe there. Honestly, it's close to my house.
Jessica: That's awesome.!
Martae: I did my high school program, my two week high school program at Beau Monde Academy.
Martae: Which is where I have all my credits but that school is way too far, that's in the Lloyd Center. I live in Beaverton so -
Jessica: I live in Beaverton
Martae: But it takes me an hour to get to the Washington Square by bus, but it would take me three hours to get to the Lloyd Center.
Martae: So that definitely wouldn't work, that would just be a total inconvenience for me, because it takes 59 minutes to get there to Washington Square but just it's so much to get to the Lloyd Center so I'm just like, I need to find a beauty school that's closer to me.
Martae: And my mom was worried about me being down there at night.
Jessica: That's a good point.
Martae: Now, she feels okay with me going to Northwest Beauty College because it's way closer, and if anything happens, she could just pick me up five minutes away.
Jessica: Yeah, that one's in Beaverton?
Jessica: Oh okay.
Martae: Do you know where the Beaverton Central Station is?
Jessica: Yeah, I do.
Martae: It's over there.
Jessica: Oh, perfect! I used to take the bus. I live over by 185th so all the way to Washington Square.
Martae: Willow Creek?
Martae: Okay. Yeah, I know that area well, that's where my school is.
Jessica: I worked at Black Rock coffee bar on 185th in baseline. I worked there for like a year.
Martae: Wow! I still haven't had Dutch Bros or Black Rock Coffee.
Jessica: You haven't at all?
Jessica: I mean, it's a lot of sugar.
Martae: Coffee, I'm not want to drink coffee but a lot of people been wanting me to go there in Dutch Bros so I'm like okay, let me try it but [inaudible 17:05]
Jessica: You have to try.
Martae: I haven't done it yet.
Martae: So I just decided because I'm not really into hair as much.
Martae: I have like 5 head dogs in the closet right now. [inaudible 17:20] closet, not in my closet because they come into my closet, they scare me.
Jessica: And that would scare me too.
Martae: But I have 5 head dogs in the closet. I haven't touched them about a year. I just and I've been buying acrylic nail kits a lot doing my nail and I don't know if you know this but at Walgreens, they have there acrylic nail kits with the tips, the long tips. I don't cut them.
Martae: I can't go back to medium either. I have to have long.
Jessica: I love having long. I would do long but then I started working with all the little tiny threadless jewelry.
Martae: Oh yeah.
Jessica: I hate too long. I am like I can't get it.
Martae: Takes me so---what I do have my long pierce mind blowing nose in, it takes me so long to change my jewelry, or even fix it. My nose ring always goes out. It would take so long to fix it because of my nails. I'm like, but it is easy to put on my eyelashes, with long nails, it's super easy. I don't even need to use tweezers to put my eyelashes on when I have my long nails.
Jessica: I would like to do that too because you can use the nail tips like press it in. Yeah, it makes it easier.
Martae: Yeah and I don't know, I applied to be an Online Beauty Advisor.
Jessica: Oh cool!
Martae: And I've been playing with different makeup, looking at different looks. I actually put a black and yellow eyeshadow on my lips. Half yellow, half black and I'm like, Oh yeah, I'm not going back, I like this.
