Because my hair curls/frizzes easily (perks of having a curl type of 4c), my hair went from being straight to really poofy and frizzy. I didn’t have a rubber band to tie my hair back, so I had to go about the rest of my day looking like I just rolled out of bed.”
  5. “Coach Van was subbing in my class and told me I didn’t need my phone since I was on my laptop and I responded I needed my phone ’emotionally’. To prove it he made me get a medical slip from my counselor saying I had a medical condition that I need my phone for emotional support. My counselor actually agreed and wrote me a carefully worded slip saying I could use my phone for Van.”
