Finally digging myself out of the fucking nervous breakdown I’ve been dancing around for the past two weeks. Doubt the calm will last long but oh well. You take what you can get.
Achievement Hunter Catchphrases - Ryan the ____ Guy.
So I have been at school for just two days and all ready been told to change my hair colour. Now since I’ve started school I’ve had my natural blonde/brown hair, followed school uniform and never caused any form of trouble. My reports say I’m pleasant and work hard, plus my GCSE grades prove this. Now I’ve started 6th form and A-Levels I’m treated like an adult and allowed non-uniform. Yet I’m still told to change my hair colour without even being given an explanation.
This morning my form tutor told me this.
"I love your hair and would never ask you to change it, but it has come to the Headmistress’ attention and she wants you to change it as soon as possible."
That was it. I’m not told exactly what is wrong with my hair. Plus she couldn’t come and tell me this herself so I could question it and ask more. Instead she has my form tutor pass on the message.
I have also attached a photo from the ‘Dress Code’ section of our school rules. What exactly is an ‘extreme hairstyle’? No where does it state that we are only allowed natural hair colours (as were the rules in the previous years).
I’m also a person that has a lot of confidence issues and social anxiety. Being able to change my hair and dress as I like has been a huge confidence booster, and going back would really damage this.
At the moment I’m refusing and my Mum has sent my Headmistress an e-mail asking for a meeting to discuss this, as she agrees I should be allowed to keep my red hair. After all, what is she going to do, expel me? Really she should be worrying about the drug use, bullying and smoking that goes on in my school.
This is discrimination and I am furious. Is she claiming I am ‘unprofessional’ because of my colour? Please like and reblog this so hopefully I can prove to my Headmistress how wrong she is requesting that I change it.
So I just happened to be on a site that calculates information about the day you were born and apparently I am 20 years 2 months 22 days old.
That little tail wag kills me
