I also had someone cut my hair for the "short and clean" look instead of looking shaggy. So within 20 minutes I went from John Lennon's Jesus hair to Charlie Sheen. Everyone says the hair-due makes me look younger...... like sixteen. I can just envision myself saying some corny jokes and trying to get students to listen to the foreigner kid who looks like a hamster. I don't know about you but I have a good feeling about this.
Oh, and birthday dinner with the parents was fantastic
I also added my temporary mailing address for the first two months in Uganda. However it may take a couple months to reach me and another couple months for the reply.
