Day Number 6

In hijab. That is, today is my 6th full day in the headscarf. Full day. I put it on when I leave (so parents don't see) and take it off when I go home (same reason.) I have worn it to classes, to work, shopping, to restaraunts, to a basketball game, to a sorority meeting.

So I'm starting to tell people.. hard to avoid it, because the scarf makes it so obvious. A few rude glares, a few less than polite remarks. Some people just don't understand... they don't expect it, and don't know what to make of it. I guess they'll have to get used to it... I don't know if I have the strength to just keep telling people. It should start getting easier--hasn't yet, though.

So one more week before spring break. If I can just take care of things for one more week. One more week...
