yes, in its most simple form it is merely a beard growing contest, but it has become so much more than that to me. and while i knew from the very start that i could make it to the last day, it is the journey here that is really what matters, not the end result. (although dont get me wrong. i love my beard.) coming into this thing knowing absolutely nobody, never would i have imagined that i would craft such friendships by merely uploading a photo and chatting through comments and on the talkback. i got to know some awesome people through whiskerino and can now say that i have over 200 new bearded friends. and while i became the stereotype of the asian dumpster diving red plaid flannel clothed googly eyes on chin wearing bearded guy, a lot of you got to know me as a lot more than just that, which means a lot to me. awesome people are hard to come by nowadays, and whiskerino is chock full of them. i can only hope that we all put an effort into continuing to be friends even after the beard. the beard has brought us together, and even with or without it, our brotherhood and community will not be separated. the past four months will be something that i will never forget and will tell stories about for ages to come. thank you all for being a part of this with me. God bless each and every one of you.
thanks everyone for an amazing 4 months of bearded bliss. until next time.... BYE!
