i'd certainly rather have gray hair in high school than be balding in high school like a guy i knew. if nothing else it gives you a good excuse and starting point to dye it weird colors

absolutely, i had a friend in college who was balding and it seems like the worst

turning silver at 22 is a blessing by comparison

This was basically my grandfather. Went bald in high school but then did the Patrick Stewart thing where it didnít look like he aged for 40 years.

I can speak from firsthand experience that Iíd rather have my red hair turn white than to have fallen out, but I at least didnít try to fool anyone and just shave my head now

god going white instead of bald at 23 would have ruled

Signed up for German class at the local community college that starts right after my job ends but it got cancelled :<

Now I can either sign up for in-person level 1 which I'm not sure I'd learn much or remote-only Level 2/3 which I'm sure I wouldn't learn much because I hate remote poo poo

i'm pretty socially awkward/nervous so i would have hated becoming a professor. like the thought of teaching being a significant portion of my duties is, frankly, terrifying.

i hope you become a fancy professor mr. nice (if you want that)

the thing that intimidated me the most was that i was at a decent grad school for my field, but when i looked at the professors it was all princeton grads or yale grads or whatever so i always got the feeling i had no chance given the numbers. the colleagues i know who did become professors ended up at smaller schools without grad programs and were teaching more basic courses while doing research on the side. probably easier to get a spot at compared to a big public institution but idk how difficult that is. at least one is tenured though.

i like teaching, but i don't want to grade anything, so i'm well suited to my current career in libraries

when i was younger there was nothing i hated more than giving presentations. i was extremely quiet and socially awkward and hated getting haircuts because it meant people would notice me the next day. i would have panic attacks and flop around and moan when once a year we had to give a speech in english class. public speaking was the worst torture imaginable.

now i have a job where i give presentations 4-6 hours a day 4 days a week and it's great. public speaking fires me up and i love being the center of attention. i will talk for as long as you let me about any subject you like. sometimes my friends in tech are freaking out about a presentation they have to give and i'm like lol, just give me your slides an hour beforehand and i'll do it for you, idgaf.

point is it's a skill you can develop and become comfortable doing, if you want to.

the first white hairs i got were a white patch on one side of my beard, which looked weird, but now i have the same patch on both sides and i look like dr strange or something so it's cool.
