Remember when I arrived here without a job etc, I was sooooooo stressed about the whole thing that I developed these alopecia stress patches on both sides of my head. I use to hide it by growing it a bit longer so that it would cover it, but recently decided on simply shaving the head to to the skin (almost) on both sides.
Trust me it's bad. It's like 10cm on one side and maybe a bit smaller on the other. So it means a weekly (at least) trip to the hairdresser. Would do it myself but don't have eyes there. Gonna take months (aarrgh) to grow back.
So here's the new look me. Technically I qualify as a skinhead.
