Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

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…See More

Stewart M. Davenport replied to Josh's discussion Armpits shaving or not?
"My wife likes my hair tamed, but she doesn't want me to get rid of any of it entirely. She likes the look of hair on a man. I'd say don't shave, and unless your pit hair is really out of control, don't trim it either. "

"I personally love the idea of a zippo lighter. I own two myself. I'm not a smoker, but I'm big on preparedness and being able to light a fire is an important skill. I don't think my wife would approve of a lighter however. We are a…"

Stewart M. Davenport replied to Dakota Caraway's discussion Looking into a new Profession: Electrician
"I made the change from a dead end job to a career as an electrician six months ago. I love my job! I see different places every day, and there are new things to learn. It's hardly ever boring. The apprenticeship program is nice. I work and live…"

"While I think this is intended to be more of a coming-of-age gift rather than and EDC kit, I do think that a thumb drive filled with important stuff would be cool.  With the storage you can easily get these days you could fill it with world…"

"Ok, so this is just my own take. First off, I'd nix the pocket knife idea. Many reasons for this, most importantly because knife safety and use should really be a separate lesson and discussion. Also, if you want this to be a daily carry item,…"

Quote
"No man is more unhappy than he who never faces adversity, for he is not permitted to prove himself." - Seneca

"The greatest thing a man can possibly do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given to him. This is success, and there is no other. I t is not a question of what someone else can do or become which every youth should ask himself, but what can I do? How can I develop myself into the grandest possible manhood?" - Orison Sweet Marden
