Hello men,

I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was studying as a history major in college. I still love history, but college is not necessary for my new career. I'm an Eagle Scout, and I currently volunteer with the local scout troop in Salt Lake City, Utah as the Troop Committee Chairman. I love making things, camping, messing around with tools and in general trying to perfect myself a little bit at a time. I'm glad to be here and I look forward to sharing manly tips and tricks with you guys. Stay Manly!

Welcome, Stewart!

Hi Stewart,

Welcome! I'm also an Eagle Scout, involved with my son's troop and a history major from when I was in college.  Being an electrician is definitely a stronger career path.  Congrats on your marraige and pending fatherhood!  It will elevate you in becoming the father your child/ren deserve.  Good luck!

Endless Forms Most Beautiful

“Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being,…See More
