I must say, I’m still adjusting to having short hair. I have phantom ponytail syndrome – I always reach to pull my hair out of my jacket when I put it on, but that’s no longer a problem. The back of my neck is a bit colder now, and even small actions, like putting on and taking off my stethoscope from around my neck are much easier. Even better, I can wash my hair in the morning before class and not worry about it Defying Gravity (pun-intended) – I have never been able to do that in my life! Unlimited, my future is… unlimited!
Monday was so magical for me, and I never expected everyone who attended to be so supportive. I’ve never had a razor put to my head, but seeing the smiling faces of my classmates made me feel at ease. During the rest of the week, I’ve received so many kind comments regarding my new haircut (which is a relief) – even the crossing guard mentioned it! Every time I look in the mirror, I’m reminded of the reason why I cut my hair and all of the good feelings that went along with the action. Even though the “Shave for a Cure” event, per se, is over, the generation of awareness won’t stop for a while!
