“Watching the Mountains Grow”

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start off, I want to start off with a sincere apology for not having up any articles in he last few weeks. I have been incredibly busy with work, applying for teaching credential programs, and trying to maintain a healthy relationship with my family and girlfriend, plus I’ve also had a hard time trying to find any inspiration to write for the blog. Lo and behold, that inspiration has come back and I should be back to my weekly posting schedule. Now to the point of today’s article, “I’m just watching the mountains grow” is something that my grandpa would say whenever he would sit out in the backyard at his vacation house and just gaze at the Eastern Sierra Mountains in all their majesty. It’s a phrase that has puzzled my family for years, but thanks to some inspiration from my sister and my grandmother, I now understand the meaning of what that phrase says. Today, I hope to share that meaning and wisdom with you. So before this article turns into a full-length novel, let’s get started!

Is There Such Thing as a Soulmate?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! In today’s article, we’re going to be talking about a question that’s been floating around romantic circles seemingly since the beginning: is there such thing as a soulmate? One person that you’re meant to be with forever? This idea has certainly become quite pervasive thanks to old fairy tales, the most timeless love stories, and popular media today largely reinforcing the ideas of those stories. While it can certainly be a difficult question to answer, especially considering just the sheer number of people in this world, I’m hoping I can provide a clear answer or explanation. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

More specifically, I’ll be going over five (5) different coffee-brewing methods, how each method is performed, and the pros and cons of each method so that you young gents reading can get an idea of how you would like to make that ideal cup of coffee. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

Lessons in Manliness from the Cowboys

Howdy gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, despite all the myths about cowboys that have propped up over the decades thanks mostly to Hollywood, there’s still a multitude of things that the cowboys of the frontier can teach young gentlemen of today. It was far from an easy or idyllic living, but the harsh reality that the cowboy life entailed came with quite a few life lessons that any man can take to heart. So without any further ado, let’s get started!

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here!
