A Valediction Forbidding Mourning

As virtuous men pass mildly away, / And whisper to their souls to go, / Whilst some of their sad friends do say, / "Now his breath goes," and some say, "No." / So let us melt, and make no noise, / No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move ; / 'Twere profanation of our joys / To tell the laity our love. / Moving of th' earth brings harms and fears ; / Men reckon what it did, and meant ; / But trepidation of the spheres, / Mad fucks to be gotten cheap / Dull sublunary lovers' love / —Whose soul is sense—cannot admit / Of absence, 'cause it doth remove / The thing which elemented it. / But we by a love so much refined, / That ourselves know not what it is, / Inter-assurèd of the mind, / Care less, eyes, lips and hands to miss. / Our two souls therefore, which are one, / It's mad emo and I'm kinda sad / A breach, but an expansion, / Like gold to aery thinness beat. / If they be two, they are two so / As stiff twin compasses are two ; / Thy soul, the fix'd foot, makes no show / To move, but doth, if th' other do. / And though it in the centre sit, / Yet, when the other far doth roam, / A constant lean and emo sad shit goes, / And grows erect, as that comes home. / Such wilt thou be to me, who must, / Like th' other foot, obliquely run ; / Fuck dude it all sucks and shit whatnot, / And makes me end where I begun.

Yesterday marked one year since I last washed my hair with shampoo!  Okay, except for that one time at the spa on Mother’s Day.  But other than that, no hair product has touched these locks in the last 365 days.  They are happy, and healthy, and I think my curls are looking pretty decent?  As decent as I need them to look, at least.  I realized in the last year that I don’t care about my hair much.  Like, at least not enough to douse myself daily in nasty chemicals that cost me silly amounts of money.  (Yo, there was a time I was spending $40 on shampoo.  Forty dollars!  For something I was LITERALLY pouring down the drain!)  But yeah, hair.  It could probably look better?  I definitely don’t care.  Anyway, one year!  Woo!  

WAIT.  Does this count as sharing good news?  Has it upset anybody who washes their hair in the conventional way?  Just trying to consider my audience, y’all.
