4th Year Anniversary of My Breast Cancer Diagnosis 宣告から4年目

Today is my 4th year anniversary of my breast cancer diagnosis.  For how many more years, will I remember that day so vividly?  Probably for awhile!

After Surgery, Back to Work! 術後、お仕事復活

After Surgery, Back to Work! 術後、お仕事復活

After 2 weeks of the recovery time, I went back to work.  During these recovery days, I had basically no social life, no make-up and no hair-do.  Some friends pop-up to check up on me, and that cheered me up!  But otherwise, I was getting a low self-esteem over time.  So, dressing up brought back my good energy!  I really needed that effect from the styling.

Teaching Wednesday 水曜日授業の日

I was feeling a little nauseous after yesterday's cancer treatment.  But at least I styled myself, inspired by this great spring weather in New York, and I felt good about it.

Many 1st Anniversaries to Follow 多くの一年記念日が続く頃 Pose #449

From today on, many 1 year anniversaries are coming up for me.  Exactly a year ago was the day I visited my family doctor requesting a mammography prescription for "just a check up."  WOW, so many, I mean, so many things happened to me for this 1 year.  Thank you so much for all of your supports to me from near to far.  Knowing that I am not alone gave me the strength to be here standing strong today.   Thank you!

Wig Shopping ウィッグショッピング Study of Pose #572

Two of my colleagues took me out for a wig shopping today with them, after my regular Tuesday teaching.  One of them started to come to the office with different wigs recently; what a nice surprise!  I was surprised to see her with a new hair style the other day.  I did not know until she told me that it was a wig.  She totally nailed it!

Teaching Wednesday 水曜日授業の日 Pose #509

"Did you make that turban?"  Being in a college where fashion creators get together, it is easily assumed that I make the accessory.   Turban is probably easier to make if I like to, but sometimes people asks if I make shoes I am wearing.  These comments make me smile.  The answer is no, almost all the time, I wish I could make them, just like that.

Teaching Tuesday 火曜日授業の日 Pose #569

Killer heels.  I love these heels, but I cannot walk too long with them.  If wearing some very casual piece on your clothing such as sweat pants, also wear something very feminine together.  This makes a look interesting and fashionable.

Teaching Tuesday 火曜日授業の日 Pose #323

"I like that one," a student was saying while pointing out my wig at the beginning of my class.  What is wrong with changing wigs.  Make a total styling, why not include wigs (or turbans) as an option while people changes bags and shoes as a part of fashion.

Teaching Tuesday 火曜日授業の日

I was successfully carrying an appropriate attitude to go with this outfit and short hair that I probably did not choose to do with long hair; feeling strong, bold and confident.  The outfit, hair style, and the attitude, all well coordinated today.  I would call my hair as a STYLE, rather than being forced to be the short hair due to the chemotherapy.  (Yes, to be honest, I still often look at myself in shopping windows with my short hair, I can come across mixed feeling about it.)  Finally, I started to feel that I did this style with my choice.

As my natural hair is black, I noticed that it would be more difficult to wear light color wigs later without showing my real hair underneath.  Especially some sideburns will show.  I should enjoy now as much as possible.
