Thursday 6/28

LR

Day2. food across from my place, coffee next door, wine at mine, got it in. 

Friday 6/29

at a friend's apartment. we're talking about getting a place together in september... the places they're looking at are insane. Apparently one of the guys' dad used to be the dean of HBS so it would be heavily subsidized. ehh no thanks dudes!


I'm starting to get a lot of success with online biz so pickiup is taking a side seat. Still going out etc just not on weeknights.

Fourth of July week

I was at home with my family this past week. I haven't been home in a long time and it brought me back to reality. Namely, you don't need to have game or even know about game to attract hot girls. Just talk about your awesome life and then ask for her number.

Sat next to a hot russian girl on my flight in. Couldnt get any work done so i opened her up a bit. Did a couple approaches at the beach (holland, MI) and had another fun convo with a girl at the local farmers market. The girls in holland are really fine and fit but conservative so they can't flirt and it's cute.

"The best way to meet women is to have something better to do than meeting women." I'm going to start traveling full time pretty soon and planning for the adventures makes girls seem like an afterthought.

 Saturday - 7/7/12

Chicago fun times. Rooftop day drinking at my brothers place in Lincoln Park. Perfect weather. Good beer. Sweet.

Cab it to river east. Continue the party on new roof deck with Goldman Sachs traders and other young successful types. This party reiterated that the billion dollar mouthpiece is a common byproduct of business success but success does not necessarily lead to game.

I burned the party to the ground. After enough drinks conversations always lead to relationship dynamics - ohhh just a small hobby of mine. A brunette stunner was teasing guys about their hypothetical first date ideas which were getting more supplication-esque as each guy took a turn. She asked my opinion... I looked her in the eyes, smiled, and said "I'd tell her, 'I'm going grocery shopping later come with.' we'd be silly at the store, cook dinner and drink some wine, then fuck for hours." A good 10 second silent staring contest went down before she mumbled something like see now that's a good date! as the other dudes wtf in disbelief. Then I burst out laughing and plowed with a story.

Limo it to some bar. My brother told stories about me learning game so the pressure was on. Welp I was in set the whole night, a couple makeouts and lots of numbers, one from a solid 7.5 blonde - HBLegs - in front of her boyfriend. I took some lines from Cat: "he's just had too much to drink" and whispering in her ear about how hard I was. Our legs were locked together under the bar and she kept using her inner thigh to see for herself. Huge anime eyes. I switched girls at one point and when I switched back she slipped her leg right back between mine, so locked in it must have looked like we were fucking under the bar. The bf came in at one point and tried hitting me. HBlegs moved to intervene but I tooled him before she even stood up. Logistics put a stopper on this and a couple other great sets but I had to be at O'Hare early today anyway.

Chicago is a cool city. This morning we beat the hangover with a stroll along North beach and through the zoo. Hot girls everywhere. I'm going back in October to run 26.2 miles. :)

FR - 7/12/12

Liberty Hotel. RSD Inner Circle - Mission Impossible. This week's mission: 3 mixed sets each, must approach solo. NUMBER ONE THING FROM THE NIGHT: the guys that came out were cool as shit. None of this half creepy-rapist crowd that's been showing at some of Todd's talks. Speaking of Todd, check out his new YouTube channel, RSDTodd. Great great stuff from an ultra-veteran of the game. Nick/Papa was there and so was his fiancee. I didn't talk with her much but she seemed real cool, especially for coming to a seminar thing full of horny dudes. Thanks to both of them for organizing the event. I'm now an RSD Intern/local liaison. Fuck yeah. Excited to take this Boston Inner Circle (henceforth known as the BCI) down a path of fun and growth. 

Overall the night was solid. Approach anxiety isn't as much of a "thing" but it still is. I need to make my wings physically threaten me for lack of approach. I did lots of approaches on lots of mixed sets, and all of them went well. I took 3 numbers. I met a guy from a month ago CJ.. we were chillin and laughing at girls then he drops that he's Rajon (sp?) Rondo's brother-in-law. if you treat everyone equally they really open up. The girls tonight at Liberty... holy fuck. Model hot. Need to be aroudn them more. Still choded on a few 9 or 9.5 approaches tho, and I could've physically escalated more. 

A couple times I had the feeling like I missed a window to escalate so I just made some bullshit up, approached nearby girls then reopened stronger. The first set was the only American girl I targeted all night. Liberty is cool like that. Mexican, Russian, Aussie, Brazilian, Indian. The Mexican girl tried blowing me out with "I don't entiendo English" haha. Saw her walking home empty handed.

Needs work: reducing time bt approaches, physical early. Dramas ladder.
Improved: verbals ++, AA --
On and off: EC 

Life things. The good: hardcore online business taking off, main boss offering to hook me up with sick jobs, work week down to 45 hours from 60, planning for my pilgrimage starting 7/4/2013, and my game has improved as I've gotten my shit together in general. The bad: super-obsessive over passive income and not doing normal social things during weeknights, not hitting fitness like I should and this fucks everything, not approaching the tough tough sets. Need more sex.

I had an interesting thought today. Instead of signing a new lease starting Sept. 1st, I wondered if it would be possible to sleep in my lab conference room, every day until the Christmas holiday. I started doing this on occasion when I want to work late on internet stuff. Rough estimates of the savings.... 875/month on rent and utils, 400 for all my furniture, 600 for my snowboard and accessories, mayb 200 on clothes I'd have to sell. I could cancel my T-pass because 90% of use comes from commuting. That's another $60/month.

My gym is a short walk to work, so in the morning I'd get up at 6, go lift and shower. It's actually a benefit because I can't dick around at night and I'd have to go to the gym in the morning. Other general benefits would be getting used to the minimialistic lifestyle of traveling full time and showing myself that the typical "get nice apartment in cool area" isn't necessary to enjoy life. If I really need a bed, I can just stay at different friends' places on Friday or Saturday without mentioning the whole deal. 

There's a storage place nearby that's 25/mo for a 5x5x4 space. Total I'd save at least $4,500. Downsides would be: sleeping on carpet ground, having no place to pull to, and having to hide the situation from my coworkers. Overall this would be pretty fucking sweet though. Living homeless for 4 months in a major city... 

I'll start getting in the habit of sleeping at work to see if people occasionally come in earlier than 6 and just getting used to it. Is this weird? I think it'll be fun.

Filling in a lot of missing FRs with a generic one. I'm working 3 jobs now - research job, tech startup, RSD intern. The past 8 weeks or so have been pretty intense.. putting in 120 hours or so each week. There's something humbling about being in business and working your ass off that translates directly to game. The IM stuff really took off to the point where I'm leaving my research job in February and doing IM/tech full time. Not sure if I just got lucky or what but I've managed to surround myself with very successful people. It's nice because I actually have other shit going on besides game and it's all leading to an exciting life so I just talk and talk. 

Couple goals--refocus on diet and exercise... green smoothies and meditate once a day. Must must must get the diet right. Business - hit $100/day consistently starting in Dec.  That's gonna be tough but it's within reach if I'm consistent. In terms of game, fuck hotter girls.. only had sex twice in the last couple months. I've done well staying away from alcohol. Trying to limit my caffeine and adderall intake but that's a goal for 2013. Biggest sticking point is recognizing that I'm sleep deprived 24/7 so I have to just avoid bad food and booze altogether.

As I get closer to a pickup pilgrimmage next summer I'll look for other guys who want to do the same. That's what's up in my life

Had an interesting thought today. One of my hallmates from school just crushed it with his business earlier this week. I sent the email to a few other friends to brag and one of them replied with "that's cool how he flipped the script on the cab industry." Hmm that really sunk in.

It occurred to me that the idea of a "pickup pilgrimmage" as a means to be more confident was, in a way, a rationalization for drawing state externally. So I started to think about what I was really after and what I decided on was, control over my time and location. So rather than wait for advertising money from websites, I already have enough money and the SEO skills that can help small businesses rank in the SERPs. What if I offer local SEO to gyms/restaurants/hotels/hostels in return for their service? Tyler used teaching as an excuse to travel. I think I can make this SEO couch surfing thing work. I'm starting with fitness coaches in Boston to get free training.
