Gregg Borodaty with beard - December 2022

I’m not exactly sure why I decided to do it this year, or how it happened, but the beard made it’s annual appearance. One. More. Time.

I get it. I didn’t just wake up one morning with hair on my face. While I don’t have a problem growing out the beard, it does take a little time – two weeks or so to be exact. That’s when thing get real, and when the grays decide to make their appearance.

I didn’t let peak beard get as thick as in year’s past. For one, I decided later than usual to start growing it out, and after 4 weeks, it got old fast. I find that it takes effort to maintain, and it just gets, well, uncomfortable.

I prefer keeping it shorter, or not having it all. I decided I would try keeping it shorter heading into 2023. How long will the experiment last? Hard to say, although I suspect I’ll be back to “normal” by February, March at the latest.
