I'm growing a beard.
The first comment I received about this personal statement was from my girlfriend. It went something like this, "You look great either way, but you look better with it trimmed."
Well I'll be damned. You see, I don't understand where this began, but I'm pretty sure where it will end. This sort of social convention is completely baffling to me. Do people think that my unwillingness to shave makes me a lazy person? Or maybe having my face hidden (naturally, I might add) makes me dishonest?
Well I say screw that. Shaving is a serious pain in the neck. And if anyone can disagree with this, then I invite them to step up. I won't even limit this to men since women have just as much of a difficult time shaving their legs (although they may argue this point).
So I am going to cease toiling for social convention! I say throw away your razors, shit-can your shaving cream, grow your hair out and show the masses that you are no puppet to their mischeivous deviance!
Or you could not.
