If you guessed former British PM Margaret Thatcher, you'd be wrong. She is dead.

I skimmed your posts and figured I'd drop an update as well. I almost got fired from my job not too long ago for alcohol related reasons and have since quit the sauce. (this is the 2nd time I've quit, I have multiple DUI's and related activities) So that's fun.

I'm saving alot of money... apparently drinking and eating at the bar every day is expensive. So ... what else? Oh I moved, I'm out of the ghetto and in a much nicer part of my city now. I even have a garden, so far I've managed to grow Arugala... and not much else but it's early.

In the meantime I'm just trying to adopt some healthy habits. You may notice I canceled facebook. Fuck that noise. Buncha nonsense on there. Still don't own a TV. I'm much less in your face about politics now lol... I kinda gave up to be honest. If the 2nd Civil War occurs I know what side I'll be on but until then I don't give a shit.

Other than that it's just a holding pattern til I can find some broad that I don't want to choke. Oh I started playing the guitar... that's alot of fun. If you like challenging things (like language learning) you'd probably like learning to play something. I just started like a week ago but I'm starting to learn about scales and shit and if you're a dork like me it's pretty cool. Basically music is finite, there's only so many ways you can play something and have it sound good. Those ways have long been figured out, all you gotta do is memorize them lol. So that's fun.

What else? Going to Vegas for the 9th time May 15th. This will be my 3rd bachelor party. Ok that's it. I'll be back in 3 months to see if anyone responded to this haha. Adios.

Hey! Glad to see you're doing well and getting your shit together. There are a few of us here who play guitar, so have any questions feel free to ask. Scales are great, I'm assuming you're working on doe-ray-me and major/minor pentatonic. Once you've mastered your pentatonic scales you can walk up and down a fretboard all day (even though you only need to stay in a relatively small area to play all available notes). Then you learn jazz, and throw out everything you thought you knew about scales.

Good luck, glad to see you're getting healthy and enjoying life.

Noskill i miss you on facebook =(

I did not cancel mine yet...although my activity took about a 90% nosedive (thank god...it's awesome). I keep mine because all my friends plan shit on there and it is easier to organize events and such.

Im the same with politics. Ive given it up for the most part. All it did was make me miserable. And like you said, when shit hits the fan i know what side im on (and i hope to see you you know where).

I swear we are alike. I didnt exactly quit drinking..but i significantly reduced my intake. I go out and have only a couple instead of the usual case...lol. I feel much better and i have been on a great diet and exercising daily. Also, got a job with a bank and im a volunteer firefighter now too lol.


I am glad to see things going well with you bro. Shoot me a text every now and then. 3473922441

One of these days ima come and visit.

Quit the sauce, eh? Once you realize how stupid your life is without it, you'll be right back on the sauce. Just have to learn to control it so it does not interfere with your job. And stop driving.

Alcohol isn't worth the trouble. It's not worth the time, it's not worth the money, it's not worth the health detriments, it's not worth the potential legal ramifications. It's a crutch, like all crutches simply a method of coping with an ailment. If you choose to label the human condition an ailment, I suppose it's a viable crutch for that as well. But for me, it will, at some undetermined point in the future, ruin my life beyond repair. So rather than allow that to continue to gradually unfold, I stopped.

And to be honest, I feel great. I'm not depressed as much, my days are filled with activities that I don't immediately regret, my boss tells me I'm the best employee he has now and begs me to stay off the sauce. Yes the social life took a hit, but this is something I need to learn to work through.

Trust me I still hold a high reverence for alcohol and would encourage anyone who can enjoy it responsibly to do so. But I've proven myself, time and time again, incapable. Is this sobriety permanent? Likely not. But the intent is there.

Back on to the conquest at hand though. Women. For a while there I was on a streak, I was picking up anything I talked to, was bedding half of them, had girls I met in Europe flying here to spend weeks with me... and now a void. (the void started several months before the sobriety so it's assumingly unrelated)

I find myself reliving old "nice guy" habits. Which is funny, because I consciously removed many of them from my persona. Eg. Genuine compliments vs back handed compliments, "Your hair looks nice." vs "Your hair looks nice, is that your natural color?" "No" "Oh... well I guess it still looks nice anyway."

I got tired of constantly having to think about how I wanted to approach, what angle I wanted to play, what angled needed to be played to close the deal, elicit her values, demonstrate higher values she valued, close the gap, create distance, make her do something for you, delay satisfaction, introduce another to create a jealousy triangle, blah blah fuckin blah. And all the other things that "work" on girls.

You know what doesn't work? Just being a down to earth good dude who likes to garden, take nature walks, read, write, cook and learn new things.

None of that shit attracts the female. You need to be a manipulative son of a bitch to be highly successful. (naturally or otherwise) I've noticed recently because I can still pick up women, but I can't pick up the women I want. It's all peripheral. It's like some crazy quantum Observer Effect where the object of my focus becomes completely elusive...

Heh anyway, hi guys.

You know I don't think you all appreciate my absurdly high intellect enough.

Retards.

I don't think it's that, I think we would appreciate if you condensed your absurdly high intellect a bit more effectively.
