I cut my hair short today.
On an unrelated note, I am a third world girl with obvious first world fantasies … still deeply self-absorbed in the idea of learning for the sake of learning. Davidson education is not for girls like me from Burma. It’s rightly for my privileged American peers that can afford to be rebellious, play Smash and get high. Davidson campus is a little Disney land, where people enjoy prolonged adolescence, talk about saving the world, and later return to their 5,000 sq feet homes for holidays. I, on the other hand, am one of the 5% of Burmese girls that are fortunate enough to have finished high school. I should be doing something that’s more grounded on reality, shouldn’t I? But I am not.
