"Beard"

For the past month, I haven’t shaven.To sum it up in one word, it has been humbling. I have endured intense itchiness, as well as paralyzing self-consciousness. Every day, there seems to be a different person who I have the same exchange with:

Them: “Hey, nice, uh…” (motions toward my face)

Me: “Yeah, haven’t shaved for a few weeks. You know, just to see what happens. It’s my first try."

Them: “Oh hey, not bad!”

It’s pretty bad. Like, if I saw myself and didn’t know me, I would probably think lesser of me. I have been asked multiple times if I’m “doing okay”, because I have been looking really tired and disheveled, I guess. One person described my appearance as “haggard”.

Anyway, I’m shaving it tomorrow so I figured I should commemorate this whole experience somehow.
