I realize this may disappoint people, but I feel good about it. I accomplished a great deal with my beard: Grew it for basically nine months (Fun fact: That’s how long a baby grows inside it’s mommy before it’s born!), got it longer than I’ve ever had it before, braided it, had a blog about it with over 100 followers, became an internet celebrity on a gaming forum, had numerous compliments on it every time I went out in public.
But I’ve had it for a while and the weather is warming up and I just decided I needed a little less. And most importantly, FEELS GOOD MAN.
I don’t know what this means for the blog. It could become ryanvsryan, or you could just start following Ryan instead. Either way, I guess this means Ryan wins. Beard will make its return at some point, though. Thanks for everything, everyone.
