I am super excited to have my period back yesterday after the breast cancer treatments.   I was told that chemotherapy could damage my totally healthy ovaries and could strip away my period FOREVER (at the age 36).  I welcome back my period with joy today!

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.
