A week and a half ago, I finally took the goatee off. I have to admit that the goatee was my favorite version of my facial hair experiment. However, the funniest thing about my experiment was that the one change that people noticed THE LEAST was when I took the beard off all the way!! […]

It’s been too long since I’ve blogged! Since you “saw” me last here, I no longer have the goatee. I’ll put up some progress pictures tomorrow, but just wanted to say HI for now, before I head off for a good night’s sleep. I’ve been wanting to mention a GREAT tool I got for Christmas […]
