6 Ways to Stay Disciplined

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start off, I wanted to apologize for practically disappearing off the Earth without any warning. A lot of things in my personal and professional life have come up since I last put up an article, not to mention the fever dream of a year 2020 was. As a result, it’s made me so incredibly busy, so I haven’t been able to find enough time to research, write, and post for a long time. However, now that I’ve found that time again, and I will be back to putting up just one article a week. With all this good news comes some bad news, though. Since our admin Mary has also been very busy with some other things happening in her life, she will unfortunately not be writing for us anymore, which means that the Young Lady’s Journal segment of the blog will be discontinuing. If we can find another admin for the blog who’s interested in writing that segment, we’ll bring it back, but for now, it’s going away. Now, with all the updates out of the way, let’s move onto the rest of the article!

My Biggest Lesson from Louisiana

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, for those of who know me personally or follow me on my personal social media, you’ll most likely that I went on a trip to Louisiana, United States for the New Year. I had a wonderful time, visited some dear friends, and finally got to visit my dream city, the jazz capital of the world, New Orleans! However, there was also a lot that I learned while I was there, not just about the culture and the people, but what I think is a good lesson for all young gentlemen to take to heart: the preservation of history. Allow me to elaborate.

Should a Gentleman be Pro-Life?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So, it should come as no surprise that the pro-life vs. pro-choice argument is VERY controversial and extremely passionate on both sides, but nonetheless, it’s something I’ve been wanting to talk about for a while. This was also inspired by our admin Mary’s article about the March for Life 2020, so be sure to check that out when you’re done here.

Best Artists to Listen to for Black History Month

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! So today’s article is going to be quite a bit different than a lot of our other articles. Since this article will most likely be going up on February 1st, that means it will be going up at the start of Black History Month. People, at least in the United States, use the month of February to celebrate the contributions that people of color have brought to the world, whether in science, technology, art, music, politics, or any other facet of everyday life. So today, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my personal favorite African American artists and bring to light their specific contributions to the world of music. You may be surprised by who you see. Also, fair warning, this article will be quite lengthy since I have a lot of artists I want to cover, but I promise you will enjoy it. So without any further ado, let’s get started!

Do Looks Matter?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! Today, I’m setting out to answer what is possibly the most difficult question when it comes to dating and relationships: do looks matter when looking for a romantic partner or spouse? This is a question that has been floating around and hotly debated seemingly since the beginning of time. There are some who say that looks shouldn’t matter at all, and there are others who say it’s the most important thing when looking for a partner. So today, I’m going to put my hat into the ring and give my take on this issue and give the best advice I can to my readers.
