My Post-Lockdown Hair!

After my first haircut in 6 months, behold…my new Post-Lockdown Hair!

I know, I know, sorry to disappoint all of you who pleaded me not to cut my hair. But I was kind of in need of a fresh new look, especially after lockdown. So finally, I decided to pay a visit to my barber’s after half a year!

My hairstyle wasn’t the only thing that changed, though. I’ve moved up one year, which means that now I’m in Year 9, the third year of secondary school – or as we call it at KES, the Upper Middles. By the way, here in the UK, we start our academic year in September, not January.

Of course, with the new Corona-Land that we’re now living in, this school year is quite different. With everyone trying their best to limit the spread of any infection, a lot has changed with all the new rules and regulations in place. It’s now compulsory to wear face masks whenever we’re moving around school, we can only stay in our own year group bubbles, and there’s a new one-way system in place for all the school corridors, which means getting from lesson to lesson takes longer than usual. 

But, both teachers and students are doing everything we can to make school a safe place for all of us. And honestly, being able to have face-to-face classes, despite all these restrictions, is much better than having to attend online school!

Fresh New Me,

The wait is almost over…just a few more tweaks to make and my first book will finally be published! I’m so excited to be able to share this venture of mine with all of you. It’s been a long road, but with the guidance from my family and the support from everybody, I’ve been able to make it this far! Stay tuned for more updates on my book – COMING YOUR WAY VERY SOON!

Suko Do’oh,
