Why I shaved my head
When I was a freshman, I joined a B-boying(break dance) club. At first, it was pleasant, but over time, the practice was so harsh. Furthermore, all the other members had a previous dancing experience but me. While everyone else played on the stage in the performance team, I kept practicing. I kept practicing even during the summer vacation when some members went back their home for leisure. I could not stop practicing to join the performance team.
One day, there was a party. We drank beers and exchanged some talks. A guy who had kept an eye on me approached and told me.
''I know that you practice hard.''
''Thanks'', I replied.
He said, ''If you shave your head, I will teach you how to do the windmill(one of the b-boying skills).''
Of course, he would probably have said this to encourage me to practice harder. And he would probably have not meant it.
But, I said, ''Yes, sir''
Next day, I went shaved my head and went to the club. Everyone seemed surprised because my hair at that time had been quite long. And the guy who talked to me the day before seemed surprised also. He approached and said to me, ''Are you crazy? Why did you shave your head?''
I replied, ''To learn windmill.''
He said, '' You are so impossible.''
But, I could get closer to everyone from the day. Everyone in the performance team tried to teach new skills, and I practiced hard. And of course, I could master the 'windmill' skill.
And finally I could join the performance team in October, and had my first performance in front of so many people. It was the biggest pride I have of all experience I had.
