Hey! My name is Dakota Caraway.  I've been reading up on the art of manliness blog for a week now and It's been a great inspiration. Recently I've been in a slum and reading these articles has made me start to re-think about how I've been spending my time.  I've been a bit of a wall flower for awhile and the advice that this blog gives is just... why did I not discover this a few years back?  This has been the most excitement I've felt in awhile.  But I have to admit, the advice given on here is only valuable if you put it to use.  Recently I've been reading the Heading Out on Your Own series and even though I thought I knew what I was doing being a year away from home, I fall short in most areas.  I hope that my time here will help me grow and I will get to know a few people who I can call friend.

Also: I was afraid my first post was a bit abrasive and I would hate for that to have been my introduction.

Calling in sick to attend a job interview?

 First of all let me explain why I want to quit my current job.*A few months ago I asked for more challenges and told my supervisor I wanted to learn more. She said I could get training etc... I didn't get those (they were looking into things). They don't give me the chance to learn new techniques. I have the feeling I'm stuck in this job and have reached a plateau-phase on my learning curve. I don't have the feeling I'm making any progress.*Communication between supervisors and staff is poor…See More
