Well, this morning’s session of The Men’s Academy was worth waking at 5:30 for. John talked about the problem of absent fathers, how boys need a father-figure, and how a father who’s not there — physically or emotionally — can damage a kid. We only got through some of his material, so I’ll have more to report next week.

We also broke up into groups, where I got to meet a couple of guys. We’re almost all young, under thirty years old. One of the reasons I’m attending the Men’s Academy is to help fix the difficulty I have in making friends, so it’ll be interesting to see if and how I grow closer to these guys in the coming months.

My copy of “NieA’s Loco,” the soundtrack for NieA Under 7, arrived today. Its packaging is quite pretty; the cover is translucent and the CD itself is painted in wild psychedelic colors.

After returning home from work, I finished watching the first DVD of Hand Maid May. It’s a cute show, which manages to make fun of anime and itself without turning into a spoof. It’s a difficult act to balance, but Hand Maid May does it.

I also started watching the classic comedy Urusei Yatsura, but turned it off after ten minutes. It’s juvenile, and I mean that in the worst sense of the term. I flat-out don’t like any of the characters. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m disappointed.

Lessee, what else. Here’s the weekly schedule I’ve worked up (we’ve moved our Nobilis games from Monday to Tuesday, which is why there’s a discrepancy between this week’s diary entries and the schedule):
