 @Burton2: hahaha funny thing is I was close because of a scholarship I got at UNO, but then my family realized that we still could not pay for the tuition and living costs... 

But is it is possible here in Peru man. My bro did it and a lot of guys have done it. I'll be fucking lots and lots of girls very soon.

June 2 - Day 25

I went out to approach solo.

Reading past field reports

I read the first page of my field reports today and felt very inspired. 

For a moment, I wanted to cry, remembering those old days almost a year ago when I started approaching everyday. Time flew by quite fast. And the best thing that I did was starting a year ago. Damn. I am so glad I started approaching a year ago and not now. Pickup has given me SO MUCH. I just love it so much.

I can't really believe I am about to have a year doing this pretty consistently with short breaks. Every single day going out. Day in, day out. No excuses. Makes me feel quite glad really.

The funny thing is that it doesn't even seem like I've gone out that much. Right now, it all kind of feels like a big blur. All I have is this comfy moment here at home, with my college studies, and questioning myself on when to really start taking action on the financial area of my life.

FUCK

I am listening to the one song I used to listen when I used to go out to parties and get drunk and practice Mystery Method + Simple Pickup. 



Those days when my brother was not even into pickup. When I had gotten a makeout at a party, and then I went to my brother's graduation in LSU back in December 2011.

And what about those wonderful days when I went every single day to the mall with my brother...

Anyways, what really inspired me about the first page of my field reports was:
1. Facing Fears like a crazy motherfucker
2. The best feeling in the world, the feeling of breaking through and taking action, the inner fulfillment. I felt a lot of that at that time.

At some point or moment, I started to build a lot of silly limiting beliefs. I started to get down by events. And somehow lost my drive to do the amazing fascinating shit.

Right now, I realize that it is all in my mind. I make the decision again to act crazily, face all my fears, and go beyond my imagination. Break the boundaries of what is possible. Go into the impossible.

Everything I need is inside me. I don't need anything else. I already know the answers to everything. And I already know that my fears are here to point to exactly what the Universe wants me to do. When I get paralyzed by my fears and do not make a decision, I let myself shrink.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 

Hell yeah! So let's go all out! There is nothing holding us back. Let's do this!!

Approaching session

I approached 5 sets today.

I gave my best in all of my sets and feel proud of that.

I gave it my all.

First set was a girl entering an elevator. I stopped her before she entered. Anyways, I couldn't stop her for long and she said she really had to go and did so.

Then I approached a woman about to get on the electric stairs. I stopped her before she got on it. Again, I tried to make her stay as long as possible. This time I really pushed. But then she said she had to go up and see her boyfriend. I told her I'd go with her so we all go together to the cinema. But no, just left lol.

After that I approached a cute girl at a line to buy an ice cream at McDonalds. For a minute I had her whole RAS. But then she turned to buy her ice cream and well all in all she told me bye in a nice way like 4 times lol.

Then I approached two girls, and went straight to the cute one. She was laughing lol. It was a nice approach. I always calibrate being direct by saying "Yeah I know I was a bit too direct but there was no other way to say it" or something like that. And then switch to talking about normal stuff and flowing, or expressing myself, pour out the heart and soul. But well she was too "Oh my GOD! Oh my God! I can't believe this!!", and laughing. And she probably couldn't take it as well so she ended up leaving with her mixed group of friends.

And then I approached a girl at the streets. This time it hooked. But then an old lady told me to help her open the door of her house. So I tell the girl to wait for me for a while.  When I helping the old woman, a group of people excitedly say hi to the girl, they stay there for a while, and then they leave lol.

So yeah.

Cool day of action!

Love it!!!!!

Lessons:
- Staying in set is one of the most important things in the game lol.
- Fun positive vibe. Love it all! Laugh at everything! IOIs and IODs they are all the same! Just stay there in set and be fun and lighthearted. Four No's Rule of course.

Peace!

Monday June 3 - Day 26

Great day of action!

I followed Julien's advice on minimizing time between interactions... well I think everybody in RSD says that lol.

Yeah, I approached as much as I could in the shortest amount of time possible.

Intense!

I did like 6 approaches in total probably.

I approached all kinds of girls. And I gave MY ALL in all of those approaches. I made EVERY SINGLE APPROACH COUNT. Every single word that came out from my mouth, I made them count as well. I made all of my actions count. I gave my very best. And damn it feels good!

I number close a not so attractive girl lol.

Then probably the best story of today was approaching this girl talking on her phone. I stood there talking to her for like 4 minutes... while she talked to me... and talked on her phone. I kept telling her to hang up lol. So then she finally did and we had a beautiful interaction. Relaxed arousal. I talked about loving being naked. She did too. I noticed her getting aroused too haha.

Loved it.

Then we walk towards the theatre she was going to. I tell her about my life. She tells me about her life. 

Then she finds her friends at the theatre. And they are all worried that she got robbed at the street lol. Apparently, there was a misunderstanding lol. Anyways, I stay in set. I try to facebook close the girl. She says no. Lol girls... And then she goes to buy her ticket. I befriend all her friends. Funny that even her male friend told her to give me her facebook. But well... she didn't. She was very very socially conditioned with "meeting strangers" and that stuff. I had to get her comfortable with me when approaching her... took a while. And then I lost that when her whole group of friends were worried about her being assaulted. Well, funny stuff. I stay with her friend for like 15 minutes talking about stuff. If she saw me she definitely got wet. Too bad for her... I just guess things were not suppossed to be like this :/

Well that was it.

I loved getting those "rejections" today. I LOVE rejections... or unfulfilled potential as Alex calls them. They direct me into a nice state of pure self-amusement and expression :)

Lesson:
Like Alex says IOI's and IOD's are all the same shit.
Staying in set is POWERFUL!!!!!!
Be the friendly, nice guy with great eye contact and gentle physicality. Build physical rapport. Then when I am isolated with her, BAM! Penis meets vagina!

Peace!

 Tuesday June 4- Day 27

 I went to the salsa club.

I was not in the best state in terms of freedom from outcome and relaxation. 

There was like not much expression of myself.

I just did a couple of approaches.

But I had a lot of AA to approach.

Well.

It happens every once in a while.

I should've FORCED myself to approach though.

Lesson:
Just DO THIS! Focus on the action itself.

Wednesday June 5 - Day 28

I did like 5 approaches.

The first one I facebook closed an ugly girl. Pretty much the only reason I approached was because she was a girl, and I could reinforce the concepts with her. And I actually DID. Funny. I got into the practice of pushing for that facebook and being a playful asshole.

Great.

Then I approached some more sets and got rejected.

Cool.

Lessons
Just DO THIS! Completely focus on the action itself. There is no purpose but the ACTION itself.
Minimize time between interactions. Go all out. I kind of succeeded at this today, although it could've been better.
Approach all women I am attracted to. If she looks old or whatever, who cares... STILL GO APPROACH HER AND GET THE REFERENCE EXPERIENCE.
Focus on game densification. Don't really look for harder sets like mixed huge sets. But focus more on leading the girl towards sex. Focus on What I do in the set, and HOW I do it.

Peace!

 June 6 - Day 28

Help! Great club. I love it!

French girl: get in the venue and my friends and I approach a big group. I talk to this french girl who is quite attracted and just wants to fuck hard and have massive fun. I realize how time is my ally. I establish some physical rapport and keep talking and talking and talking. Alex game lol. It all goes okay until their friends move to the dancefloor to experience more of the night, and she goes with them. Neither one of us had a phone so it was not an option to number close and call her later to fuck.

Peruvian girl: I approach this hot peruvian girl while being super aroused and happy. It kinda worked well you know? Only that I don't remember why she left. It was like she was looking for somebody for a long time. She just told me "You are very persuasive." And then left with a smile. I guess I could've gone for more at that point and get her back.

Brazilian girl: Hot girl! Wow! I approach girl. She laughs and laughs. But apparently I did not land the plane. And at some point she leaves with her friend who was talking with Chode Campos. Well, I think maybe I even got into chase mode for a while. But I am not quite sure about that. I maybe did though.

Lessons:
- Game is all about having a boner and being happy and lighthearted: Yeah! Love it when I walk around with my nice boner, relaxed arousal, and happiness! I've gotten the best reactions with this vibe :)
- Get her to chase! Give her the opportunity to chase the prize!
- Amp up the Positive Emotions until EVERYTHING JUST EXPLODES OF HAPPINESS, POSITIVITY, AND FUN!


June 7 - Day 29

This was yesterday. Peru won against Ecuador FUCK YEAH!!

The streets were chaos haha. It was so fun.

I approached some interesting sets at the street.

What I notice is that I do not give a fuck about the girl's reactions and I can get physical much easily. But yeah that was it. The girls I approached left because they left with their friends.

Then we went to a venue and it was full of mixed sets. I tried approaching some but nothing really worked lol. 

Lesson:
It is all good! Don't give a fuck about any reaction. They don't mean shit!
Stay very present, centered, and unflinching when approaching a girl.

Peace!

Saturday June 8 - Day 30 

Well last day of the challenge.

I wrote a kick ass field report but something happened and did not get posted. I think it was because I had no internet at the time I posted it. So I had no more time to write it again.

Pretty much what happened that day was that I did not approach much and realize how stupid it is to go out and do nothing when I have A LOT of stuff to do. Wasting time by being paralyzed by fear or social anxiety is the worst lack of self-respect that could possibly exist. I literally have so much shit to do, that wasting time being a idiot is so fucking stupid.

And so, right after writing that field report, the last couple of days I've taken much more action that I am proud of... not only in the daygame dojo but also in college and being social with people.

You cannot let social anxiety paralyze you. When you let it paralyze you, you are stupidly punishing yourself for no reason and sending yourself to a place of being AVERAGE and MEDIOCRE and a DYING  BEING, as opposed to somebody who is constantly tapping into his GREATNESS, goes for what he wants out of life, and GROWS every day.

Sunday June 9 - Day 1 of LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN THIRTY DAY CHALLENGE PART TWO

Oh by the way, the LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN THIRTY DAY CHALLENGE PART TWO is a continuation of the 30 day challenge I've just done, only that this time I am going extra focused on my goal of getting laid and being a fun, amazing, GREAT being at all times.

This challenge is all about PUTTING MYSELF OUT THERE. It is about saying "FUCK SOCIETY AND BEING LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE. I'LL BE AUTHENTIC AND ACT THROUGH MY OWN INTENTIONS!"

We are all meant to shine as children! So, when I put myself out there, hell I'll give other people permission to shine as well! And we'll all shine!

Yesterday (Sunday) I took massive action. I did several approached (like 3 or 4 actually) intensely. So I liked it. 

The highlight was approaching a woman sitting. She was much older than me. I actually saw her today at the park with someone lol, she said hi haha. 

Anyways, I approached her, talked to her for a while and sat beside her. It was funny that she told me I was too young, and that men were immature beings, but she still looked like she wanted to fuck.

Well, I did not go for it... like leading and going for a venue change or getting physical. So I gotta start going for those kind of things! At least leading and changing venues with light casual physicality! 

Come on! This is the LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN 30 DAY CHALLENGE PART 2!

It is all about PUTTING MYSELF OUT THERE AND MAKING THIS HAPPEN!

Lesson:
Jump into the cold pool and lead like A MAN. Do what is right. Just get those reference experiences.

Monday June 10 - Day 2

I approached some sets. I did so intensely again. 

I even did a "hard" two set lol. It took some guts to do that one. But well, nothing really happened.

I think I got rejected in most of my approaches. Even when I did most of the stuff right. Arbitrary shit I guess.

Lessons:
- Just keep putting in the effort in this! It is so fun! 
- BE FULLY UNAPOLOGETIC. Fully let go of asking for permission. WHY THE FUCK WOULD I ASK FOR PERMISSION TO BE WHO I WANT TO BE? OR TO GET MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND GET TO MY GOALS? There is no fucking sense in asking for permission for matters of that magnitude and importance in my life.
- More self amusement? I guess even MORE self-amusement wouldn't be bad... it'll make it even more fun :)

Peace!

Tuesday June 11 - Day 3

I did two approaches.

I just went out for a while to a small university a few blocks away from my house.

Nothing really happened.

The first girl, I told her she was cute and she walked away lol.

Then I approach another girl, and talk to her for a while succesfully, but then it turns out she is a legit lesbian haha

Funny day.

I still went for the facebook close though.

GET LAID OR DIE TRYING!

Come on! Let's make this happen!

Also, I had a good time at college talking and laughing with girls sitting next to me lol.

Lessons
- "You are not going to have sex in the middle of classroom floor". So, patience. It relates a bit to Alex's principle of you not having sex with a girl in the middle of the bar haha. Anyways I realized this. What is good about this is that it gives you freedom from outcome and let's you relax!

College is teaching so much about math and business, but also it has taught me A LOT about myself and social dynamics. I LOVE IT!

Peace!

 @pmonkeys: lol glad you like that too :)

Wednesday June 12 - Day 4

I went out for a while to approach.

At first I wasn't approaching shit and was walking around like an idiot for like 20 minutes.

But then I decided to approach for once and for all.

My first approach the girl said thank you and I did not know what to say. Spectator mode as a result of being cold haha. So I called it a warmup.

Then, I approached another woman who did not look back, which made me think that I should've positioned myself slightly in front of her to really get her RAS.

Then, I approached an American woman. My brother told me the approach was pretty smooth and that the way I approach girls looks very laid back. Anyways, I managed to stop her and got her whole attention, but I never really landed the plane, given that wasn't standing still but kinda like moving in a hurry to go to her appointment.

And well, I guess I could've addressed that to make her stay. Maybe I could've said "That's okay. I only want to know you for a minute". But... naaah I don't know about that actually. I guess I might try it here and there and see what happens.

The other solution was closing and quickly making her invest.

Lessons:
- Put slightly in front to get more of her RAS and have a better chance to stop the girl at the first attempt.
- When girls look like they have to go somewhere, first address the situation so as to make them forget about it for a while. And if that does not work well, then close and quickly make her invest so that she remembers you.

Peace!

Thursday June 13 - Day 5

I went out pretty late. I did like two approaches.

Nothing much.

I approached older women.

They were paying attention to me, waiting for me to lead, and experience me. But in both sets, I got the limiting beliefs of them being too old and me being too young, and me failing to bounce them to another venues or place which is something that I haven't done yet.

Since I do not have a phone, I've figured out that the best way to get women now is to get them right then and there. Same day lay motherfucker.

So, what I'll start doing is taking them for drinks/coffee. And then taking a taxi to a place like 10 minutes away where there are lots of cheap hotels. And I think that not having a phone is an amazing opportunity to really do sets this way, to do them the RIGHT way.

I haven't done this yet. I do not know yet how to do it exactly.

But I have a vague idea. And the way I plan to do it is like this:
1. Approach.
2. Land the motherfucking plane.
3. Get some light, playful, and casual physicality going all throughout the interaction.
4. Say  something like "Hey I am bored in here. Let's look for adventure over there" or "let's go over there", or "let's move over there". This is the CRITICAL step so far. I'll start doing this and then just following my intuition to fuck the girl. And it is VERY IMPORTANT that I play TO WIN here. Like really go all out and play to win. PLAY TO WIN! If I fail, then at least I have the reference experience. Reference experiences only count as those times when you ACTUALLY GO FOR IT, FULLY COMMITTED, AND PLAYING TO WIN. I WILL NOT ACCEPT HALF-ASSED REFERENCE EXPERIENCES. I'LL GET THE REAL ONES.

Peace!
