Hey Beard: We're Through!

2009-08-05 22:13 - General

As I mentioned when it was a month old, I've been growing myself a beard since December last year. It's had time to get big and bushy. I've trimmed it here and there, but basically not shaved for eight months.

The novelty has worn off. It gets in the way a bit, it can be scratchy. And it is indeed quite bushy. I'm about to start a new job; if I start it with the big bushy beard, it's the first impression all my new coworkers will get. But really, I got a haircut today which ended up shorter than I intended .. and it looks rather foolish now. It was the last straw. It's time for the beard to go.

I shaved it off! I have cheeks again! Just before, I took the picture you see on the left. For the moment, I've left what is a rather monstrous goatee, which you can see on the right. I'm not sure how I feel about it. But I'll probably leave it for at least a day or two, and see how my current coworkers react.

Hey,

How are you feeling now? when bearded, did you feel stronger, more secure, and relaxed? or not?
