 Hey people

So I am 17 years old now, pretty young, and decided to start a journal on RSD recounting future tales of how I take action and approach women. Hopefully this will show my progress through weeks/months/years, and when I see this in 4 years I will say "Damn I even wrote my reports in a gay-ass tone" hahaha Anyways I have like 9 months doing this, pretty hardcore, at high school parties and lately clubs haha.

I have 5 make outs of cold approach so far, which is pretty cool considering my chode story. I was like this really loser, bad-smelling, chode haha. Old timezz. Not anymooore. Now I am just a man here, doing pickup.

My good bro (awesome wingman) dcampo3 is also in this. Great success story also, props to him. He was a complete chode-ass some time ago, damn that boy improved! Check out his field reports, he mentions me. Dont forget to hire him also.

I've been in Costa Rica, now I am in Peru and I havent done approaches in a WEEK. So guess what? Time to break comfort zone. Oh yes. And that hurts. But still. Good for the soul. Lately I discovered Ozzie's posts of Fear Technology, completely resonated with it, and will try to implement it in field. Peace guys. Will update this very soon. Love.

Monday July 9, 2012. Larcomar, Lima - Peru

Approaching in Lima for the third time now.
I am starting to think that girls are pretty much the same compared to Costa Ricans. Cultural differences seem to dont even play a key role in attraction. 
Anyways, went out, sat at a bench near a fountain with view towards the Pacific Ocean. Sat there for like 10 minutes, relaxed completely and became present. After that, I stood up and did one approach. It was a pretty American girl sitting by herself.
Talked to her for a while. Did some cold read, "you look foreign", then started asking questions but forgot to make any funny remarks after their responses. I learned she was studying Peruvian literature and stuff. Then I ejected. She was laughing, seems like she couldnt believe someone approached her and started talking to her out of nowhere.
Then, I got in my head a bit, went to relax again, didnt worked much, couldnt get too present. So, I went to a 2 set of girls and didnt knew what to say, so I just said the comfortable where is starbucks question. Pretty lame.
Then my dad called me to go eat somewhere, and pickup time was over. Wish I could have done some more. Definitely tomorrow, I'll implement jack-off theory as much as possible.

 haha thanks bro!
So today I went to the mall with D-Champs-O-3. 
I did 2 approaches. The first one was the starbucks opener trying to unstifle myself and build momentum. I teased a bit. It fucking died.
Then, my brother suggested that it is not really about building momentum but approaching without momentum.
So I relaxed for like 20 minutes and did an approach at a bookstore. It was an HB7.5 at the New Agey section lol, great situation for situational approach. So I opened with "Do you know where and Eckhart Tolle bookas are?" She did not know. I told her I asked because she looked like a person who might like it and she was standing at the new agey section. She then started to talk (hooked) about why she likes New Age stuff, but she got a phone call and left. 
Today I found out it is better for me to rely on building momentum and doing a bunch of approaches. I resonate much more with that. 
I'll do more tomorrow and update this thing. 
Peace.

Dude what i meant is that you can also work without momentum. Dont think that you + momentum are beast.. but that you are enough.. and you can go even without momentum
Great report.
Peace macpeace

 Daygame at Jockey Plaza today.
Approached like 10 sets. Daygame is becoming more comfortable to do. Gaining some macro-momentum.
Approach at bookstore went well. Talked to a girl HB6 for a while, I still do not have the balls to go for a number close, but I am pushing myself to do it. Hopefully tomorrow.
Then approached direct, went well also, no closes.
No closes.
So tired, fuck.
So much self amusement. My brother and I started recording our approaches. I entered a set with a camera haha Chode Campos had opened it, I kinda stole his girl without noticing. He did the same afterwards. I guess time without winging each other has left us a bit uncalibrated on winging skills. We got to build teamwork again.
It was pretty fun today, and tiring as fuck, the whole day out, walking everywhere. I still have to work out. It's almost 1 AM. Damn. My duties bringing me back to reality over and over again. Sweet.

 Alright Alright
Mall game at Jockey Plaza July 18 

First of all, I watched Todd's video on having standards yesterday and think it is great. So I wrote down this after watching it.

What I want in game: Get laid with a lot of cute chicks, have several open relationships at the same time, and mastering the art of cold approach pick-up in the long term.

Traits I look in girls: 
Sweet, caring attitude.
Wholehearted: completely sincere and
committed. 
Not superficial, dumb, or silly bitch.
A bit of a challenge to get.

So, unfortunately today I wasnt really screening for these traits in girls (I forgot). My mind was more on Ozzie's concept of the two minute mark and doing scary approaches.

I loved it.

Why?

I am currently reading Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins, and I am applying the concept of pleasure and pain. So, these last days I am linking pain to not approaching and staying and comfort. And linking pleasure to taking action and stepping out of my comfort zone. Taking action is getting pretty pleasurable. Damn I feel good right now, I know I wasted few chances, I did all I possibly could.

Well, not "all" really.

Next time, as I sit down and write my field report, I will question myself, "Did I do everything I could infield? Took action whenever there was the minimum chance for taking action?". And I will not lie to myself. I will make sure that I say a honest yes. It will be fucking hard. But I am willing to do this. Do my 1000 rookie mistakes. Get them out of the way. 

Julien's video blog with Todd helped a lot with linking pain to staying on my comfort zone. And I will try even harder to completely see my comfort zone as a nauseating, chode-ass place where I do not want to be at all. 

So first approach was as I got off the bus stop, at night, with chicks scared that someone might assault them. I thought I needed to do this because I needed to get rid of the excuses of "not here" and that type of shit. So I asked a stupid chode question, got a nice response, and went away. Pretty chode huh? Well I am newbie, fuck off.

Then, at the mall, a chick sitting by herself texting. I was scared to approach. Moved my heavy legs, step by step, as if I had a heavy iron ball with a chain attached to my foot. Went completely direct. I thought you were really cute. BAM. Fuck ego protection. What did I get? A stupid chick ignoring me and not paying attention to what I said. Did I care? No. Fuck that. I kept talking. "Hey yeah I am doing really well, thanks for asking. Oh talking to strangers? yeah its pretty cool you get to see some pretty cool personalities of people and some other lame-ass personalities that suck balls. Bye". As I talked she texted faster and angrily lol. The look on her face haha.

Then I did another approach to a chick promoting some kind of credit card application or some shit like that. I went direct again. "Hey why are you girls all dressed very nicely and holding little notebooks in your hands?" At this point I just said things because it amused and aroused myself. So pretty good interaction there. When I was about to leave. She invested in the interaction by asking how old I was. I said 17. Then asked her age. She was 18. She looked like 25. I left.

I walked a bit more. There was an art exhibition of chairs. Went around asking girls what was the meaning behing the odd looking chairs. Also self amused myself here. Said things that were hilarious to me. I like that I am getting this virtue, definitely have to work on it more and more.

Then there was a girl sitting by herself, her friend was sitting next to her, an artist was making a portrait of her. So I asked, "Are you a part of the artistic paint, like just sitting there by yourself", got a nice response, but I "ran out of things to say" or basically got uncomfortable. Not good enough entitlement there. Later, Chode Campos reminded me of Julien's relaxed look staring at the girl to get investment. I will do that next time. Watching Tyler's vids on entitlement can also help a lot.

Afterwards I watched Chode Campos do some approaches. We went back to the art site. Had a good interaction with the sister and mother of one of the artists work being exhibited.

That is it.

Oh I got ignored by a chick while walking back to the bus stop. Fun times. That place isnt even supposed to be for approaching lol. But, then again, the point is to MAKE, FORCE that place to be great for approaching.

Now thats it. Have an interview tomorrow. Damn. Will apply the concepts of RSD to have a good performance.

Developed today:  
Two minute mark.
Using fear as fuel haha. Doing scary shit for me.
Self-amusement. Self-arousal. Enjoying myself.

For next time: 
The above items and screening girls for the traits I like, also apply Julien's look to get a girl to invest in the interaction.

Cold approach at Larcomar, July 19

Pretty good day again. I feel like I am expanding. While sadly my brother Chode Campos is experiencing a contraction. Part of the learning process.

First of all I want to thank to the pickup community and RSD for giving me the resources to have the best life I've ever had, experiencing success in many areas of life.

Today I feel like I nailed an interview for a scholarship. Like really fucking nailed that shit. So, just really want to thank everybody for that. Turning a socially inept guy into a cool person. Wow. That almost seems like a miracle.

After the interview, we went to Larcomar, a cool mall here in Peru. 

The first approach was a 3 set of chicks that were 3/10. I decided to do that because I had been procrastinating with Chode Campos for like 15 minutes, and decide that starting small was better than anything.

Second approach was a 3 set of a cute chick and her not-so-cute friends, they were in line to buy coffee. This was kinda funny. I wanted to go indirect, realized it was fucking lame, and changed to direct. It was like "Hey do you guys know where the eh um eh. Well I actually thought you guys were really cute and I had to meet you". Cool set. D-Champs came in and shit went well. There was a set of girls behind us in the line. I opened with a question, didnt followed. 

I realized that I wasnt getting to a 2 minute mark and hooking the set. So then I focused on changing that.

Crazy approach. At least for me.

There were 2 girls sitting on the grass in the park.

They were like 40 meters I went for me. I did not want to do this. I was fucking scared. But I just painfully moved my feet against my will. Started to run towards them. I drew a straight line from the position I was standing to theirs and just walked on that line. I loved that shit. I loved challenging that pain, getting out of my comfort zone. What a great feeling. Fuck sakes. I felt like if I had control of my life. Freaking awesome.

I opened with "I thought you guys were interesting and had to talk to you".

The interaction was MESSY AS FUCK, and far from being perfect. It was  just getting my two minute mark while doing a scary set. It was literally surviving a fucked up plane landing. With turbulence all over the place.

However, it went really well. Wow.

One of the girls started investing in the interaction by asking questions about me. Sweet. 

As I was talking I sat down on the grass. It was awesome. I had never done that before. It was amazing. Fuck.

I stayed there for like 10 minutes. Raped the 2 minute mark lol. I was about to go for the number close haha. And then D-Champs came over and well we continued the interaction. Not complaining or anything. I am actually proud that I am entering the stage of game of asking for phone numbers at daygame. Thats pretty sweet.

Then we left. High fived the girls. The girl that I was going to close high fived pretty hard. I probably liked her. I could have asked for her number there, hug her. Hopefully I'll do that naturally in the future, as I keep progressing.

Then, while walking in the street. I did this approach to a gorgeous HB 9 and an American woman. God I feel proud that the HB9 talked with me. I was acting pretty normal. Like just feeling normal. But I still think that I put her on a pedestal just for the fact that she is a fucking HB9, subconsciously I just cant help that I am still in very profound ways a value leech (or maybe not, but most probably I am). Of course I did not felt like a value leech. However, I did catched myself thinking "it would be so cool to hang out with this girl, get a picture with her", fuck thats pretty fucked up thoughts. The faster I get rid of the stupid silly shit, the better. It evens feels nasty to think like that at times. Damn.

Anyways she was from Argentina, did the IB programme like me, so that was a cool topic. Yep pretty cool. More of those interactions with hot girls will raise my entitlement. Today it probably raised like about 0.0001%. Awesome!

What can I say? Life is FUCKING GOOD. 

This too will pass. Non attachment is always important. But I am really enjoying this lol.

What I realized:
When I am feeling approach anxiety, a great way to approach it is to use that fear as fuel and heavily move my legs, step by step, towards the target. Then, work on my two-minute mark.
When I heavily walk towards the set and the girls have already noticed me walking towards them, there is no going back. To go back is even more painful than to be rejected lol. I fucking love this. Fucking love this.
Love Ozzie's take on using fear as fuel.

Developed/worked-on today:
Two minute mark.
Using fear and feeling scared as fuel.
Being friendly and cool.

For next time:
Same as last post.
