I've been getting the feeling of being (physically) irritated by my beard. So I've been thinking about shaving it. I didn't want to take the time for that last night, so I decided to trim it. I reduced the bulk with regular scissors, and then I actually used the razor to shave a bit underneath and a bit on the cheeks. I think this is the first time I've done an actual trim and shape with my beard like this. It came out a little uneven, but it doesn't look too bad. I might try this again some time. Meanwhile, I think I might shave it completely off soon. We'll see.
