This is my beard after four weeks of growth. I've defined a neckline and a cheekline that I maintained with routine shaving until August 22nd and 31st, respectively. With most of the job interviews out of the way, and seeing that my beard's potential will be truncated through artificial line-setting with a razor, I've decided upon leaving it natural henceforth. Therefore this post, while not officially the 1 month marker (September 4th), is the starting point for the full beard in the strictly literal sense. I shaved my head with a razor yesterday as well.
