The time has come to get shit done.

I've graduated.  I now have a career.  I'm making cash money.  With my second paycheque I signed up for an RSD bootcamp in Nov with TD in Las Vegas.  Everything is coming together.  This could be the wildest year of my life.

But I've gotta start putting in work and getting serious about this shit.  Time to dedicate myself to it.  I've been coasting for too long.  Having sex, but not with hotties.  Going out, but not approaching enough.  I've just been getting by, not excelling.  This must change.

I moved to a small city for work.  I don't live with my parents anymore.  That excuse is gone.  I have money and a car.  I can do what I want.  The only thing stopping me from being incredibly successful banging hotties everynight is myself.

It's almost exactly 4 months until this bootcamp.  I'm doing this challenge.  I'm recording everything I do here- all the success, failures, adventures, misadventures- to keep myself accountable.  I only work 12-14 shifts a month and have the rest of the days free.  I do work 12 hour shifts but I'll have plenty of free time on my days off.  

In between now and the bootcamp I've got tons of fun stuff going on.  Next month is my bday, I'm going back to my hometown, going to see my favourite band, and going to an electronic music festival.  In September I'm going to visit a buddy in NYC for the weekend.  In October I'm going back to my hometown to see my favourite greasy white rapper.  For the first time in years my lifestyle will be incredible.

Goals:
1) Make every day productive.  On my days off, workout, meditate, go out, talk to strangers, have fun, compliment people, be friendly, go on dates.  On my days at work, work my ass off and learn new shit, flirt with cute nurses.
2) Bought a 24 sampler pack of condoms.  Use these all by the bootcamp.
3) Flirt at every chance.  I've become way less flirtatious, must change this.  Flirt more with strangers.  Build that sexual tension.
4) Approach 120 girls.  At day, at night, alone, on the dancefloor.  Where ever.  Pull, get numbers, go on day 2s, makeout.
5) Make new friends.  Go out with my coworkers.  Help my friends pickup chicks.
6) Get ripped.  I've got about 10 lbs of fat to lose.
7) Run at 30 km race in late September.  Run it in under 3 hours.
8) Cook more at home, less takeout.
9) Read.  Everyday.
10) Further my career.  Do overtime.  Take additional training.  
11) Limit drinking.  2 drink max when I go out.  Drinking only wastes money and ruins my sleep.
12) No jerking
13) Laser eye contact.  Hold it.  

In a couple years I could look back on this challenge and see it as the turning point in my pickup life.  It's time.

July 23
First  day of the challenge, feeling excited, go for a super long run, I am checking out hotties the entire time, smiling at them as I run past.   Wanted to say hi to two but I pussied out.  From now on I must at least say hi to any hot women I see.  Nothing to lose.  I'm becoming more and more aware of all the hot women around town.

A girl from POF messaged me saying she was bored.  Told her to get dressed up and we went out to a cocktail bar.  She was way overdressed, looked pretty good.  Goes on to tell me that she's a high school dropout and her life consists of partying and more partying.  Makeout with her at the end of the night but that's it.

Not a bad first day, feeling more passionate and I can feel the fire burning.  Gotta approach!

July 24
Rainy day today, still went for a long run, feeling like a champ.  My cardio is excellent.  Not many people out walking around because of the weather.   Set up drinks with another POF chick, an 18 year old.  She was really thin, not bad looking, seemed cool.  I'm working on being my super flirtatious old self again and I'm feeling pretty comfortable doing it.  Flirting is so much fun!  The bar was empty and I saw a hottie all alone waiting for her friends.  I considered going to talk to her but didn't because I was hanging out with some other chick.  Fuck that next time I will.  Don't think, act.

Went to drop her off after a drink, grabbed her face and tried to makeout with her.  She actually ran outta my car and said "I don't kiss on the first date" as she was running.  Lol.  18 year olds.

As soon as I got home I deleted my POF account.  This challenge is about talking to strangers and meeting new people, not messaging girls on POF.  Fuck that.  Can't use POF as a crutch.

Right now I'm feeling very motivated, but also a litle pissed off for not approaching the hotties I saw on the street and in the bar.

My family is visiting me for the next couple days, then I'm working  6 12 hour shifts in a 7 day period, so my life will be pretty tame and I won't be going out much.  I'll do what I can to keep being flirtatious with hotties at work.  After the stretch of work I'm off to my hometown and ready to tear shit up though.

 great stuff.

congratulations on decideing to take massive action.

a little advice though,

making these specific goals of trying to do a certain amount of sets and fuck a certain amount of girls can add unwanted pressure.

alot of the focus before bootcamp should be a focus on doing the right things i.e  following tylers six step process and just making a real effort to do the right things that will ensure success and push you to gain as much refernce experiances as possible.

you may be different from me,but when i creat some outcome of approaching or  fucking x amount of girls,i risk a potential failure down the road.

focus should be on doing the right things!

good luck man,your doing big things

 Thanks man.  This type of motivation has worked best for me.  If I don't reach my goals I won't get stressed but at least I'll try.

Been hectic with work and driving back home.  I listened to part of the blueprint during the 6 hour drive.  Some great lines from TD:
"Either she likes you or she doesn't"
"The glory is to be had"
"This is your life"

Aug 3
Saw my grandma during the day, went out with some buddies at night.  The night began in a parking lot with a great view.  I'm back in my hometown.  We were sitting on a shipping container drinking beers shooting the shit on a beautiful day.  After a few beers we headed toward downtown and eventually found our way into a club.  Probably my favourite club in this city right now, 2 dancefloors, good atmosphere, cute chicks, good music.  I had us on the guestlist so we didn't have to wait in line.  There is a group of 5 of us, 2 of my buds, one sister and one girlfriend.  We are all having lots of fun and girls start talking to us as soon as we walk in.

Approached a few girls with simple "Hey".  Just trying to be friendly and flirtatious.  Found our way on the dancefloor and I started going wild.  Had a few more drinks (drank too much, oops) with my buddies then went back upstairs.

I saw a cutie with red hair and gave her a compliment about her hair.  She responded well, things got really flirtatious, she told me it was her birthday, I teased her about me being the cooler Leo.  We started dancing, I grabbed her neck hard and starting making out with her.  Told her I was going to find my friends and she should find me later.

Recently I've been doing this thing where I'm at a cool bar, but wanting to leave and go to a new one.  I guess I think another bar will be better, but it never is.  Eventually we left to another bar and it wasn't great.  From now on if the place is fun I won't leave.

Overall it was a really fun night.  Next time I need to drink less, and approach more.  Overall I'd say I approached 5 girls.  5 down, 115 to go.  Approaching is easy, gotta keep telling myself this.

In the other areas of my life, I'm making some investments with the extra cash I have, working out hard everyday, looking better and better, spending quality time with family.

Big week ahead.  Going out with an old fling tomorrow, birthday on Wednesday, seeing my favourite band on Thursday, then going out with friends Friday and Saturday.  Looking forward to keep building momentum.

 Aug 9 and 10
Celebrated my birthday with some buddies.  Drank way too much the first night, took it easy and was the DD the second night.  On my birthday we went for shisha they went to a fun country bar.  I was too drunk and ineffective.  Been getting tons of compliments lately, from dudes and girls.  A bartender complimented my t shirt.

A friend dared me to go talk to the fattest ugliest chick in the bar so I did.  She was standing by herself on this ledge.  Went up to her and said "Hey had to meet you", she said something like "you're not allowed up here".   I laughed it off and left.  Hahaha.  Went outside and saw a hottie smoking, said "Hey" and started flirting with her.  She was cute.  After I finished my smoke I told her to find me later that night.  I was too drunk at this point.  Had no killer instinct.

The next night I was the DD, went out with a friend and all his friends.  These guys are quite the group, a bunch of athlete meatheads, pretty stupid.  They are fun to go out with though.  We started off at karaoke, I sung some Blink 182 completely sober.  I have a terrible voice, I could have never imagined singing karaoke sober in my last life.

By the time we left karaoke, these guys were wasted, drinking the potion, I drove them downtown and we went to a bar.  Pretty busy inside, wasn't really feeling it, choded around for a while, eventually went on the dancefloor, said hi to a couple chicks.  Went outside to cool down, found my buddy outside.  We walked back in through the door and I saw two hotties leaving, I said "Have you met my friend yet?", they immediately stopped and chatted with us in the middle of the doorway.  Nice.  Eventually we went back inside.  I went to order a water from the bar, cute bartender said "I love your chest hair", I was showing a lot of cleavage that night.  I only said "thanks".  Should have flirted back.

So 5 more approaches in these two days, I have 110 to go.  Still no sex though.  

Things I've gotta work on:
-talk to more chicks during the day.  I see them around town, gotta say hi.  
-girls are always complimenting me.  I'd say this happens at least once a night.  These chicks obviously wanna meet me, I can't just say "thanks".  Gotta start flirting and get to know them.  Any advice for when chicks compliment you?  How to transition specifically?
-approach more.  The more sober I am, the clearer my head and the more witty I am.  Don't get messy.
-NYC in 4 weeks, I'll be there at the end of fashion week, gotta get ready to tear it up with my buddy.

 Aug 16

Back at work, back into the routine.  One of my classmates got a job with me and started working, me and him went out for drinks.  Had a couple beers on a patio then headed out to a bar.  

It was a beautiful night, lots of people out and about.  Even though this city is small (200 000 people), the nightlife isn't bad.  We were walking to the bar and there were two hotties walking toward us.  Made eye contact with one, loudly said "High five!", put my hand in the air and she gave me an awesome high 5.  I'm making an effort to be more friendly and open hotties, I'm making progress.

We got to this hilarious hillbilly bar, walked in and went to the bar to get drinks.  I started chatting with a girl beside me at the bar, she was chubby and cute, flirted for a bit, she told me I was really cute.  I told her she was smooth.  After getting our drinks me and my classmate sat down and just chilled.  Flirted a lot with our cute waitress.

I texted some chick who I'd met out before and told her I was at this bar, she showed up some time later.  My buddy left, me and the chick got on the dancefloor, she kept trying to take off my shirt on the d floor, making out.  I told her it was time to go, she resisted a bit and said what about my friends.  I just took her by the hand and walked her out.  We got back to my place and had sex.  She is cute, but not hot..  Also after sex she got all weird, wouldn't get outta my bed, I wanted to go to sleep.  Eventually she left, I don't plan on seeing her again.  The sex was aight.

1 condom used, 23 to go.  2 approaches, 108 to go.

Again I drank too much.  I'm not gunna drink at all for the next 3 weeks.  Getting more friendly, flirting tons, I'm starting to build momentum.  If I don't drink I'll have to focus on more daygame and being sober at night.  This is getting fun.
