Michele told me to do what I want with it.
So the thing is, I still haven't decided what to do. I don't have to shave, which is nice, but I'm more conscious now of how it looks. You know how when you have really short hair you don't have to do anything with it? And how when you have really long hair all you can do is gather it up? But when it's in between you have to decide what to do with it, when to cut it, how to style it, and such? That's a beard, unless you're a frigging mountain man, and I'm not that--yet. So I have to keep it trimmed and unscraggly and out of my mouth. But since I'm so undecisive by nature I may always have a beard just by virtue of putting off the decision.
