Hello everyone reading!

Ok , so a new semester is approaching, and I now want to take that leap, where for the 1st time I'll be going without my wig to college. I'm at a new college with a new slate. Therefore I want to do things differently. I'm really excited however I do have moments of being a bit nervous. If anyone could give me some pointers ( how to go about it, dress it up, reactions recieved, ways to speak on it) from your experiences I would appreciate it sooo much. Can't wait to hear of what it was like for you all who took that step into college. :)

Hi everyone ! This is my first time back since I've posted this. I must say the semester has been a a challenging one. I honestly did not go completely bald. This may sound like an excuse but I never had a good support system most of my family rejected me when it happened , so I still had a few bad voices lingering, and now that I'm in school alone I really didn't have a support system for when I heard more of those comments and received more weird stares. So before I did something like that I Wanted to make sure I had a strong suport system. However, I did do something different, which was I made sure to tell everyone! I like wigs because I've always liked hair. I went bald for a month and realized it was bold, sassy and beautiful but I was also cold, then sweaty, then left with everything that came with it alone since I am not with any friends or family.

There has been a few things I've learned...

1).I like wigs , I like bald, I like the creativity of it. And being bald in Miami is not much different from having hair. Either way you sweat. ;-)

2) the joy of being honest. I tell people now ! Such a HUGE step for me. I've watched people claim me as being valueless. Not fun to hear yet I'm very proud of myself of just facing everyone who compliments my hair (wig) with the truth and enjoying the journey of the many reactions.

3.) step by step, my confidence grows. One-day I will maybe go forever bald. Some days I don't mind. I do my best to embrace the bright side. (Good health, humor, strength, creativity as many of you on here have helped me gain)

Although I didn't get the chance to personally reply to everyone, although we may not know each other physically but by spirit I love you all. You all have helped me sooooo much. You all have made a journey that I just wanted to give up on, not seem so bad, or in fact gave me a new perspective, new options, a new kind of courage. Now, bit by bit , I'm excited to see who actually sticks around rather than dreading watching people leave. Thank you all so much. We're in this journey together and I'm excited to see how we all handle and grow from this throughout life. <3
I'm really interested in hearing your experiences this semester at school. This too has been my first semester in college being bald. My hair first started falling out during the first week of last semester. It was completely gone by the end of September and from then I wore my hat and wig. Thought I was going to have to rip the band aid of at some point. Personally I think I get more of the weird "creepy" stairs at work versus school but that's probably because of the difference in demographics.

way to go jordan!!!!!  i am super proud of you.  

by the way, anyone who thinks of you as valueless is really talking about the way they see themselves.  pity them.

remember, people will show you who there are.  you just have to let them.

enjoy your break from school, you have earned.  enjoy being with your family.  i am sure they are thrilled to have you home.

A good topic for discussion, the author. I perfectly understand you in the matter of care and a new image before the new year in college. Especially if you are new and this is your first day in the world of student life. There are many special chips among the students described on http://shoutengine.com/ADayintheLifeofaCollegeFreshman/. And among the also mentioned styles and types of students. Among girls, it is very fashionable to have a short haircut, right under the guy. This is the peak. This can demonstrate your style of court life.

There is nothing to be ashamed of or to be worried about, believe me. I've been through all of this and trust me, this is not your main problem. You are in college, and when I was in college all that mattered to me was to find someone to write my papers at https://au.edusson.com/write-my-papers and that's it. I hope that you will understand it and think more about studying.

When I was in college, I found how good knowledge can help me in the future. I was studying computer science and soon one company find me for my work. I was very glad, they offer me a workplace after I finished it. The time goes and I face with a problem. I had no time for my essay. So it was one time when I take the help from academic essay writing service, and thanks to them the work was of very high quality.
