So, I shaved today and almost immediately I thought it was a mistake. I only had the beard for a little under 2 months (pretty long for me), but it really felt good. I've always had the trouble before wherein I grow a beard and shave it because I don't recognize myself, but this time I really liked it. This time, I don't recognize myself without the beard.

Not sure what to do. I can grow it back pretty easily, assuming Nova doesn't actually stick to its own policies (it didn't before) and let's me grow it. I dunno. I guess I'll see how my ladies react tomorrow and let that be the test. Doesn't matter how I think I look, I do what the ladies want. They have to look at me. I don't have to look at me.
