First-Day Jitters

Oh man. It’s the first day of school. You’re nervous about another school year. And holy cow, it’s that cute boy from your math class that you still have to work up to courage to talk to. You aren’t in a group, which is a BIG problem. How do you cope with social weirdness?

Find Other Loners

Chances are, others are feeling lonely and awkward. Help them out by just going up to them and saying hi. You might hit it off!

Jump into Groups

If you overhear a group talking about something you like, talk to them.

Forget About Baldness

As alopecian Shelby Ortiz said,

”Hair is an accessory, not a neccessity .”

Just act normal. I mean seriously, you are practically normal. See my post What Sets Me Apart for more insight on that topic.

Be Yourself!

Let nothing stop you from being you. Remember, you are a unicorn in a sea of horses. Embrace the horn!

Even if school’s already started, just retain these facts. Maybe you can rehash it next year!

I’m completely bald and the proud owner of a blog called Peytonpecia is all about helping kids with alopecia areata feel comfortable with themselves.
