Mood: curious

The one on the left was taken May 14. The one on the right was taken yesterday.

I think my running is definitely affecting my appearance; my face looks much slimmer than it did. It's more noticeable when I smile. Also, I have over 2 weeks of facial hair right now, which may or may not look absolutely atrocious.

I've been using the May 14 picture with my job applications, but I'm thinking about switching to the new one. I think I look more serious, more adult, and less desperate in it. On the other hand, the facial hair is, um, well, yeah.

Which is better? (And why?) (ETA: I'm just going to stick with the old picture for now - or at least until I get around to shaving. Thanks everyone!)

Sans facial hair, the newer would be better for job applications. 'Cause since it isn't a proper beard, it just makes you look scruffy. I've never really been a fan of the in-between look myself. In general, I like the older better because you smile in it.

That's exactly how I feel - the old one is too, I guess unprofessional, but the beard in the new one just looks bad. Thanks for your opinion - I'll probably be sticking with the old picture (until I get around to shaving, sigh)!
