Breaking up is hard.

My girlfriend of 8 months and I just broke up.  I don't post here often, but it's almost easier to type out thoughts to random people that can offer objective criticism and encouragement rather than friends or family.Everything spiraled down hill quickly.  We had planned on moving in together, and really just rushing everything.  She lives out of town, and we both work in different cities.  Out of those 8 months we got to see each other less than a hundred times.  It really takes it's toll when…See More

Gift idea for older brother

My 28-year-old brother recently got accepted into law school, and I want to congratulate him by sending him a gift.  I have the hardest time choosing gifts for people, because I don't want to get them something they're not going to use.  Which is why I prefer cash or Amazon gift cards myself.  But this is momentous enough that I want to actually get him a specific item, I guess to demonstrate my thoughtfulness.  I googled gift ideas, but nothing's really stuck with me yet.  I was just wondering…See More

Teachers' Club (for men in Education)

Virtual staff room for visionary teachers of every discipline. This is a good place for educators to discuss their collective role in society--particularly in regards to their duty as role models for young men. What does it mean to be a male role model for young boys in the classroom? How can we serve them best? See More
