rip beard, you are already missed. i decided that i’ll grow it out again this summer, it feels weird not having it there anymore.
i think it might be time to trim up a little. it seems fuller but sadly i think i have reached terminal length. My mustache curls down past my upper lip, which i think is more funny than gross. i find myself idly running my fingers through the base of my beard all day long, which probably looks silly to the outside world.
also the beard oil arrived and it smells… disappointing. actually it was a sampler pack of four aromas which contain various unpleasant bouquets. why did i blindly buy a scent over the internet? i guess i’ve done dumber things… i just can’t think of any.
i still love my beard, but i think i the end is near.
ps: im also on twitter now @lorenthethird
i should really clean the spots off my mirror. i decided to spoil my beard for valentines day by purchasing some beard oil online last night. it is supposed to smell nice and will hopefully attract other beards. i’m starting to get really attached to it…him…(?)* it may sound silly but i would really feel incomplete if it was gone. i only wanted to grow it until the end of february but my heart starts to beat fast when i think about shaving. hmm.
*should i name it? is that normal?

dear beard diary,
I’m about one month in at this point, which is much longer than I have ever gone without shaving. The hair on my face is very blonde so it does not show up well on camera. The bulk of the hair is definitely under my chin though, which is kind of frustrating. Once again my genetics are at odds with my ego, but there is not much I can do about that. It seems that no matter how old I get, the sting of having embarrassing genetics never seems to fade. You’d think I would be used to that by now. I wonder if the beard will keep growing longer or if this is the end of the road. I’ll check in again soon.
excited about our new band shirts ^_^
This is day 10 of my attempt at
manhood facial hair. It’s a slow start, but with patience and bit of prayer maybe i could wake up in sam beam territory one day. My goal is not to shave until the end of february, just to see how it will look. If it gets (more) unfortunate before then I will prob chicken out and just go back to my clean shaven ways.
