    Why I Grew a Beard

     The weekend following Valentines Day, I sank into a deep depression. It was unlike me - a jovial, joking sort; the guy who makes everyone at work laugh. I didn't shave that morning, but no one said much except, "You look like death warmed over." There's nothing...

    Long Chin Beard

    I am starting a long chin beard. I started about 2 or 3 weeks ago. and I want to get it long enough to braid and put beads in it.  in the time since I started, it has grown about 1cm down from my chin, how long will it take to get long?

    This is week 3. Back in November,

    I tried to grow it out but failed. After 3 1/2-4 weeks, the itching became unbearable and I took the straight razor to it lol. This time I'm going to try to push through it and go a total of 8 weeks before I trim it up.

    It's Time...

    The last time I had a beard, it was a goatee that I've been nurturing for 9 months. Then I took a job at a company which had a strict code about facial hair. I had to shave it off... I've been working for this company 6 months. First, I climbed their little career ladder, but...

    Because I Can!

    I have always liked the idea of growing a beard, but had thought most women would nae like me in a beard. Now at my age I think it is safe tae assume tha a beard will neither help or hurt my chances.

    I've never really gone past a week without

    shaving so i decided to grow one and see if it suits me and whether i actually like having a beard. After a few months now i''ve gotten used to it and i think it suits me. I might keep it for awhile.

    I did the Movember thing then decided to go

    with a full set of facial hair. What I didn't realise is that it would cause such controversy among my friends and work colleagues! Most of the guys are supportive and have a positive attitude, but the ladies wow! They just cant stop talking about it. I never knew I could be so...

    A Good Change

    This isn't my first beard, but I always enjoy having one. Every time I think about it, though, I can't help wonder why beards aren't the norm among men rather than the exception. Logically, it seems much more natural for a guy to let his facial hair grow than not to. Anybody else...
