Worth A Look...

Hi Everyone...

I've been a member of AOM, for about a year or so now, and have enjoyed the time I have spent here; far more productive, informative and worth wile than Facebook, that's for sure! ;)


I have connected with some really nice men here, and value the friendships of the guys that I have met. This is such a great…

First Day of Class

The anxiety has ceased and the excitement has set in.  The first day down on my year long journey to become a nurse.

I'm updating the presentation book I use to show potential clients the kind of work that I do, using visual collage and fabric swatches to illustrate appropriate dress for different work and social situations as my tools. I created the original collage sheets about seven years ago and redoing them now, I see that there have been very few lasting major changes in menswear since then, save for the slimmer suit cuts and the introduction of gingham.

Changes in menswear are historically… Continue

My 30 Days to a Better Man Challenge

Day 1: The first day was interesting, it really made me think of my core values which I had given it a thought in the past but I had never actually sat down with a piece of paper and pencil to actually think of what they are and write them down on paper.


Day 2: Even though it seems like an easy enough task, cleaning and shining my…

My vacation was different than others; there were more men this time. Actually one more, to be exact.

We share a house at a very quiet, private, lake community, and usually the timing is off for the other husband to be there. I get to be the guy with two women and our families, in a place full of other women, their husbands back at their jobs working.

This time, as he exclaimed to me at the beginning of the week, "I'll get to vacation with you."

Somehow the extra man…

Five Reasons to Record Your Scouting Trips

Jason is an avid hunter who always goes out before every hunt, looking for the best place to set up camp, noticing signs of game, and scouting for the ultimate trophy. But one too many times, he has found himself out on a hunting trip wishing he had written something down while he was out exploring. Recently he found himself trying to find a certain ridge he had…

Random story on why it's better to be a man

A few days ago, someone's cell phone and a quarter must have fallen out of his pocket in one of the most wonderful places in the world: Our local subway system. [It's where I met my future husband.] I looked in the address book, and there was a number for "Home." I was going to take it home, call "Home" and tell them they could pick it up at my office or at my apartment sometime when my fiance's over, or I'd send it to them if they gave me an address.


But it's such a hassle…

Unspoken words

The way people strike us, the first impression they make, lingers long and often colours the relationship we have with them, if indeed we choose to have one with them at all. Even if our initial contact is through email, we still only get one chance to make a first impression, and seeing as though our image is…

What is a Man/ What is good Son?

    Like i have said before,  I have been told my Dad and I were allot alike.

Tommy Joe's rules of fatherhood

 I really miss my Dad around this time.  I have been told my Dad and I were allot alike. I guess that is why whenever we were on opposite sides of a problem we butted heads so hard.  But everything I know about being a man and a father I learned from him.  During the last year he was with us I spent allot of time at the house helping him and just talking.


My Grand dad left around the time my dad was 13.  He uses to tell me after 13 he was flying blind on what to do as a…

On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs - Dave Grossman LTC U.S. Army RET.

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November…

Vacations over

Back in the office from a wonderful vacation and a few weeks of the hectic activity that only summer can produce: friends visiting, trips, swimming, canoeing, etc etc.

Have not been at this site much, and glancing at it again I see it with a new perspective.

For months I held myself to what other gents were doing here, what was expected of me if I wanted to be a Man, and it proved a wonderful opportunity for self pummeling and doubt.

Reading all the blogs and posts, I…

The correct way to study human anatomy

Most students beleive that human anatomy is one of the most difficult courses to learn. One of the many reasons behind this specific beleif is that there is a great deal to memorize in the subject. It seems impossible to the students. Above that, a lot of the terms are in latin, which most of us hardly understand. If you should study anatomy yourself, the problem is worsened even more. To make the learning process easier you must break it down into three steps. After you achieve that the… Continue

First blog - on bettering oneself.

Hello world. I am rather new to this place, and I haven't quite settled in here yet. Still, I am happy to be here. I have been lurking for months, but only rarely been taking part in the discussions.


There are parts of my life which is stuck in a rut:

  • I am bored with my job
  • I have lost direction after quitting college.
  • I smoke, and really wish I didn't. My grandparents died of cancer before reaching sixty.
  • I am overweight, bmi past the…
