So I get bored sometimes. And that boredom becomes not keeping the hair growing.
I just needed a change, you know? So I shaved my head a little over a month ago.
However, I’ve kept the beard growing. My other two compatriots who were participating in the Winter of the Beard with me have both dropped out. They’ve both stayed hirsute, but both have trimmed considerably.
But I’m to the point where I almost can’t stand it. The neck beard is so long. I’m just tired of it. The beard is clocking in at over an inch. And it’s just gross.
It’s surprising. I know that it’s no big deal for people to let their hair grow for six months. People do that crap all the time. I’ve done that crap before.
But the beard is a different creature. I’m just sick of it.
I think I’m going to shorten it up. The other day, I played with my hair. I had a week’s worth of growth on my head and only shaved half of it, and left half of it long. It was fun. I liked having the change. I think I’m going to try again this weekend after a week’s growth; maybe a mohawk, because mohawks are cool.
But I think I want to trim my beard up, too. Maybe some handlebar mustache action or something; not shaving the rest bald, but shortening it up severely.
I just don’t know what to do. I want something new. I want a change.
