I'm getting over the judgement that comes with having a full beard. At first I loved that people tended to avoid me OR approach me to compliment and talk beard talk. The beard is all people really see now. It's fine around people that know me because they see passed the beard, but it's crazy how much the beard dictates who I am when I meet someone for the first time.
Thinking at the end of November to shave everything but my mo. Have a big BIG filthy mustache for a month or two.
Im amazed out how many people avoid me now because of my short hair and goatee/beard thing. I quite like it as the seat next to me on the train is usually the last one to be taken.
I regularly get asked when entering our building through the private door for my ID if Im not in one of my business suits.
