The beard Update

Sans Souci — The beard as of February 4th, 2014. Not much has….

The beard as of February 4th, 2014.

Not much has changed in a month, though I guess it’s a little thicker and a bit longer now, and definitely a little healthier because I’ve been using beard oil. Yes, beard oil is a thing that exists and it’s great!

I keep getting so many comments, mostly of wonder (e.g. why are you doing it) or people who think they’re funny with Duck Dynasty or ZZ Top jokes. Others think that I’m just simply hopping on the beard bandwagon, not realizing that I’ve had facial hair in one form or another for roughly 15 years. Then there are the people who are fully supportive of me growing it out, wishing they can grow one as well, but don’t, for whatever reasons.

Encouragement and questions are great, but in a nutshell, I’m just simply doing this for me. It’s a test of my patience if nothing else. I’m so very anxious to see what shape it takes and how long it will get as it grows (untrimmed, I used to groom it regularly) for a year, but I’m forced to wait and see. :)

The Yeard

The Yeard

Day one of the #yeard. I’ve already got quite the head start and a decent beard already, but I’ve decided to take it a step further and not touch it in any way for the entirety of 2014, or until a desired max length is reached (though, I’m not sure what the desired length is just yet), whichever comes first.

Anyone care to join me in this journey and grow a yeard of your own?

Beyoncé Knowles is the Prime Minister of…

Beyoncé Knowles is the Prime Minister of:

a) England

b) Australia

c) Jamaica

d) None of the above

7 out of 28 students on a final quiz answered this question wrongly. This at the end of a semester when they’re supposed to know the material for a geography class. They didn’t answer wrong as a joke because it’s a final, it counts toward their grade.

I’m afraid for their (and our) future now more than ever.

True story.

They answered ‘Jamaica’, for the record.

It’s Movember and time to make a difference.

Men’s health is a cause I am passionate about but in order to make a difference I need your help. My commitment is to grow a moustache for the month of November and in doing so, raise vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male mental health.

I am asking you to help support my personal journey by making a donation. The size of which isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember to continue funding its world class programs.  If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visit

To highlight the importance of what I am doing, take a look at these statistics:
•    1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
•    This year 26,500 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
•    1 in 5 men will experience a mental illness this year

If you’d like to help change these statistics, please donate to me here:

If you’re interested, here’s a video that will help you better understand the type of programs you’ll be helping to fund by making a donation. For wider details, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website:

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health.
