It was a dread-negative day for me today.

I was on campus all day and granted, I've only been locking up for three weeks now, and I'm sure there's more of this to come in my future, but up until this point, all of the comments I've received on my hair have been positive. But today, I was standing with a professor outside who I have been a TA for for years now, and she went at me for a whole five minutes about why my hair looks awful and how I need to put some conditioner in it and who exactly did that to you...telling me how awful it looks and nothing on the planet is supposed to look like that, you'll never get a job, etc. etc.

And while we're standing there, another professor walked by and I said hello, and he says hey, you're doing your Bob Marley impersonation. Puke.


Why do people feel like it's okay to be so rude about someone's hair just because you semi know them???

Anyway. I just needed to vent that out a little bit.

It's my head and it will look the way I want it to. So neener neener neener.
