Well, you are in for a shock next time you see me. I no longer have a beard. Lets get the reactions I had at first out of the way.

My reactions to my de-bearding:

  • Whoa my chin is gone!
  • Whoa I need a haircut too!
  • Whoa I don’t recognize my self!
  • Whoa my face feels funny!
  • Whoa, was this a good idea?
  • Whoa! People are going to freak when they see me!
  • Hmm, I look less manly. Like I needed that…

So I have had a goatee since mid High School.I had full a beard since before the summer of 2005. All the people I have met and know me from MATC in Visual Communications have known me as a bearded fellow. That is a weird concept, and part of why I did not shave, people liked me when I had a beard (not because, just concurrently.) So obviously the beard was not that weird on me.

I never really had a very thick beard on the sides, so it never looked all that great. I get the impression it was not very attractive, and that it was not very professional. I need a haircut to match now. I need a haircut ASAP, maybe shaving it off in the early hours of Christmas was not the best idea. 🙂

And no pictures, It will be fun for the next few months too see peoples reactions. (or down right scary) (Maybe it will come back, or the goatee, Time will tell.) (Wiggling my chin in front of the mirror is like an out of body experience.)
