Billed customers on Wednesday.
A work colleague discussed an opportunity he had with me, and how he can't take it. Suggested to help him and take it together.

I'm enjoying the last day of my time off and am ready to take things to the next level. Let's go.

Health = I've decided to refrain from going to the gym for now this way I don't put myself at risk for COVID19 again. If I wasn't seeing my family in a couple weeks I would go but its cool. So instead its all about working out at home and running 5ks twice a week. I've been averaging a little under 33 minutes for my previous 5ks. I've also decided to stick to the stuff I was doing when I had COVID19 which was adding vitamin C and zinc to my multivitamin that I take after my first meal.

I'll also keep on drinking tea twice a day as well right along with drinking water with lemon juice. All good stuff that I plan to continue from here on in.

Vocation/Money = Uber Eats has still deactivated my account because of COVID19. I shouldn't have requested the support lol, this wouldn't be happening. Shouldn't be too complicated to reactivate but I'm not too worried about it. Worst comes to worst I can deliver for someone else like Door Dash or something if push comes to shove. Got plenty of money in savings to harass potential clients either way.

If I am reactivated tomorrow, I'll be working on my freelance writing services website starting tomorrow. Should be up and running with good samples by Friday either way.

Chicks = I'm starting to hunt like crazy online now. I'm also doing a bit of day game too, when bowling. I also went to an outdoor show at the golf course I used to work at and did a bit of day game there too. Well it was during the night, but it was a day game environment.

Learning = Alright, I'm planning to buy The Millionaire Fastlane in the next couple days. I'll get the audiobook this way I don't have yet another book that I need to lug around. Or I'll get a pdf version if necessary. I also decided to favorite a whole bunch of classes on Skillshare on blogging that I will be taking when I can this month. Gonna use the last quarter of this year to completely set everything up when it comes to my businesses because I will admit that I have no real idea what I'm doing when it comes to making email lists or membership sites, both of which I could profit like crazy from.

I haven't written on a Sunday in weeks. I've been recuperating as best as I can. Though I love to be active, and it's an exciting time for my work.

This week I:

- Wrote the campaign for my email welcome sequence.
- Drafted LinkedIN blog posts to be scheduled.
- Setup 3 dates.
- Onboarded a new model.
- Started a partnership with another modeling agency.
- Scheduled tweets for the upcoming week.
- Began preparing a project with a SMIC Brother.
- Studied 3 more books in the Bible.

That's that for now. Here's to the new week.

Health = Ran my usual 5k on Wednesday and yesterday. As well as my usual home workout: Push ups, squats, the usual.

Money/vocation/business = I'm just applying for gigs at this point. Uber Eats is being really stupid, account is still deactivated and it has been nearly a month. I'm applying for Doordash tomorrow so I can at least do some driving stuff during the last half of this month. I was going to build my freelance writing website but like with most things, my perfectionism has gotten in the way and I didn't do it. I'm afraid I'm going to do it all wrong. I really need to check out some resources on how to address this when it comes to vocation related stuff because its killing me.

It's funny, with everything else I have no concept of perfectionism at all. With chicks I just invite them on dates after chatting for a bit without a second thought. Same with health: Just don't eat fast food, stay active, and I'm good. But when it comes to this kind of stuff I put so much unnecessary pressure on myself and EVERYTHING seems like a big mystery to me that I get further and further away from solving. Been like this for a lot longer than I'll ever care to admit. Guess I just need a strong set of fundamentals to follow or something.

Chicks = Still just hunting away, we'll see what happens. Don't really care about chicks at the moment tbh.

Learning = Wound up not doing any of the stuff I announced I would do last week, not good. Instead I just dove into blogging related stuff. What I might actually do is use the time I'm spending with my family to listen to Millionaire Fastlane. Like listen to it in the car or something then listen to it again when I'm there and take notes or whatever.

Health = LMAO no wins here, since my family thought I was famished even though I only lost about 15 lbs. Cheated on my diet that entire weekend lol.

Money/Business = I am BACK on Uber Eats! Feels sooooo good to do this again! Also am working on some assignments as well. So the rest of the month I'll be doing Uber Eats until it gets dark out, eat, write a bit, go to the gym, then get home, take my ice bath, then eat again as the day ends. I also made $20 playing blackjack after visiting my family.

Chicks = Trying to line up a date with a Tinder chick. Been getting more matches than usual on it even though my profile sucks.

Learning = Finished the 10k follower challenge thing on the fb group I joined. I'm not gonna spend a lot of money on new courses/books quite yet since I just dropped nearly $500 on car repairs as well as another COVID19 test.

Another busy week, lots of action

Health
Keep on walking. started also to run.
Gym still closed for the next few weeks.

Went to see my dentist and skin doctor - all is well.

Money
  • New potential long term project - got a call from my contact, and he was asking for reassurances that I can do the job. Did my best, and also sent him samples of my work. Waiting for reply.
  • Got a LinkedIn contact that asked for an online call - call happened. We may have some things in common. Agreed that I introduce them to local companies and they'll send me a "partner's agreement". AI on me.
  • Got an "on hold" request from one of my new clients. The work we started was held up by the customer for evaluation.
Networking and Friends assistance
  • Helping Friends
    1. Job-seeking friends - Now helping one of my MLTR who was just fired. Also got approached on LI by a 25 year old industrial engineer student who asked me to help her. Let's see what might come out of that.
    2. Another friend who tries to push himself through the world - he's doing a crowdfunding thing, and it's not that well. Tried to push him through, asking him to make more content and publish it to support the effort.
    3. Networking
      1. Continuing my new policy on LinkedIN - everyone who connects with me gets a "How can I help you" message. See MONEY.
        Also added sending birthdays wishes and saying I'm here for them.
      2. On reserve duty this week so let's see what I can pick up there..
Books
"The art of the deal" by the man himself (Trump). This is an autobiography which gives some insights into his early days (1970s and 1980s). Also re-read "The people Trap" by Robert Sheckley (Good Sci-Fi collection of stories).

Learning
Some online seminars:
  • "Parenting and the view point of the child" - nice online seminar about how to understand your kids. Seems I'm already doing some of it. The organizer called later (to try to get a sale) and I introduced her to a large FB group of divorced (I'm indirectly a member as I don't do FB)
  • "Making Ice cream" - a cooking webinar. Dropped it.
And did one of my own - gave an actual webinar to a group organized by a friend on "Smart Cities".

This week is reserve duty, so work will be subsided.

Health = All is well, was kinda slow on my last few 5k runs however. All the college kids who go to my gym around here keep getting COVID19 so I'm staying away from the gym for now. Instead I'll use the gym at my apartment complex which I had no idea was open. Doesn't have nearly as much equipment that I need but that's cool, I'll manage.

Money = Won about $85 at a bowling tournament yesterday, Uber Eats is back on and I'm making a little less than I was previously. Not as many bonuses. It's all good tho. I'm also doing a couple of projects for my clients but it isn't nearly as intense as last month was.

Chicks = Tomorrow I'm going out with a meh looking chick I met off Tinder. I'm still not really hunting as hard as I usually do but I'll take this date. She looks alright for late 40s I suppose.

Learning = I'm kind of interested in Bulldog Mindset, which is a YouTube channel similar to Caleb/Blackdragon. Been getting training videos from him and watched a couple. I'll watch em attentively starting tomorrow.

  • End of the month billing - noticed that last month was not that good. Need to make an effort to bill more next month.

Books
Was reading "Demons" by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I have read his work, but could not read more than 150 pages on that one

Online seminar on building a work plan. Although I know the material, the guy was good enough to present it well and suggest tools that I adopted.

Health = Had a bit of a scare over the last week when I found blood in my number two. This happened three times. Figuring it was probably just a hemorrhage and I was right. Everything was fine after taking stool softeners and increasing my fiber intake by putting some metamucil in my water. Guess that's a new lifestyle change now. Only problem is that metamucil has aspertame which pretty much gives people cancer. So I'll need to look for something similar that doesn't contain aspertame.

I've been lifting weights in the weight room of my apartment complex that nobody goes to instead of the gym I go to. The gym I go to is full of college kids who I am convinced all have COVID19 at this point lol. Not trying to get this again (I know the chances are small but still).

Money/business/vocation = Just got done writing another book. Gonna put some of it on my YouTube channel as an audiobook. Got a chance to score another writing gig as well. Uber Eats was alright. Miss the surge bonuses but it's all good. Got a whole bunch of assignments I need to do and I'd like to get them all finished in 10 or so days, since bowling is gonna get really intense for the last few weeks of this month and going into December. So I want to get some good practice in.

Chicks = Date last week was god awful. Chick said like 2 words. Zeroooooo chemistry lol. But I scheduled two dates this week with better looking chicks so let's go.

That's about it for now.

PS I can't wait for this election to be over. Seriously, this shit gets sold to us waaaaaaay too much. If voting and stuff is so noble, why is it being sold to us like used cars? Been asking this for nearly a quarter century since I was in junior high, still haven't gotten a clear answer. And I know I never will. Incidentally, the book I just finished, "The Activist Inquisition" is about how we're pressured to waste our lives with this stuff instead of focusing on the things that matter.

Started having trouble sleeping. Wake up after 3 hours with breathing problems. Doctor ascheduled.
Keep on walking. But less, due to fatigue.
Gym still closed for the next few weeks.

  • New potential long term project - finalized the deal. Got an approval for short term work plan preparation (with compensation). Long term is based on end-customer approval.
  • LinkedIN based partnership - Had a call from someone who approached me regarding smart cities abroad. Will prepare presentation and hopefully get the leads started.

Read the following:
  1. Sate (Silk) by Alessandro Baeicco - novel which is written like a musical composition.
  2. Demian by Guillaume Musso - psychological thriller.
  3. Old Man's War by John Scalzi - Sci-Fi. Yes, he is a Gamma and it shows, but it is still a good book.
Learning
Online seminar on increased sales via marketing funnel. Good lecture, but material is very familiar.

Early check in for me today.

Health = Fantastic. No more blood in my number 2 after being consistent with taking the stuff I started taking for it. Very nice. Ran a 5k yesterday after taking a week off of them. Turned out to be a good idea since I beat my former personal best time by over a minute. Still lifting weights in the weight room of my complex.

Money/vocation/business = Got a whole bunch of assignments that I need to do. Uber eats was average. I want to knock out all these assignments before next weekend because the last half of this month is going to be chock full of bowling practice and competition. Will be going to a lot of tournaments right after Thanksgiving.

Chicks = Went on two dates this week. The first was with a petite 43 year old. It went very well, she wants to take things slow like most 33+ chicks do but that's all good. 2nd date is probable. Will probably get her to my place on the 3rd date.

A day after that I went out with a 40 year old with T&A for days. A lot of woman here. About 2 inches taller than me and probably weighs about as much as me. We were supposed to get coffee but the joint I planned us to go to closed so we just walked around for a bit. This date also went pretty well but I haven't heard back from her. We'll see where this goes.

I'm also trying to get a couple other dates lined up. One with a 19 year old college chick who is looking for a sugar daddy. Told her that going out with me would be much better than having a sugar daddy "hire" her to keep him company. Jury's still out here. Another is with another average 35 year old chick who I just matched up with on Tinder. Trying to get her to get sushi with me on Wednesday.

Networking = Funny thing about the overweight 40 year old chick I went out with on Friday, turns out she owns a digital marketing agency. If things don't work out with her romantically, maybe I could write stuff for her? We'll see.

I also pitched my new book to a YouTuber I follow who gives good freelancing advice. He's willing to buy it. Tomorrow I'll make a sales page for it on my website and share it in our comment thread. Hell I might share it here too if that isn't against the rules here.

It seems I have a case of silent reflux combined with seasons allergy. This makes me wake up after 3 hours and having trouble breathing during sleeping.

    Update: did not work on it. Allocated sometime this week.

Health = Encountered some blood after dropping a number 2 but that was on me. On Saturday I went on a bowling trip with my team and ate a bunch of fast food. Whoops. I also drank a little more than usual since one of my teammates pretty much made us all drink lol. Twas a good time however, and we all bowled pretty well.

Money/business = Speaking of bowling, there's a good chance that my team and I is going to cash at this tournament. Uber Eats has been going alright and I finally got paid for my last bit of writing assignments. I'll be entering my third PBA Regional tournament the first weekend of December and in order to save up for it I will be doing Uber Eats in some capacity every day until Thanksgiving.

I just bought an add-on domain for another website. Gonna make it completely writing related: Gonna list my rates, all the organizations/people I have written for, samples, other stuff like that.

Chicks = Had a decent first date which ended in sex on Wednesday. The chick was pretty much a BBW version of Tomi Lahren lol. Super Tradcon, thinks COVID19 is just a variation of the flu (which it is but its surprising hearing that from a chick lol), and is against wearing face covers. Anyways she's a massive (figuratively and literally) dominant chick but the sex was still pretty damn good. Made her orgasm like 8 times lol. That's the thing with big chicks: They have really good orgasms.

I did tell her what Caleb said in his latest video only I gave my own little take: I told her that if she's looking for a dude who she can pressure to do stuff with, I'm not that dude. This was after we had sex. I'm seeing her for lunch tomorrow but it will be short. Kinda don't want to do anything with chicks until after the tournament next month tbh. But if I can have sex with this chick during my off time I'd be cool with that.

Learning = I've decided to take some Skillshare courses involving writing related stuff and blogging. Its finally time for me to start doing this stuff right now that I have selected a potential audience.

4 books this week:

  3. Chronic Fatigue by Noa Nunberg - Interesting Sci-Fi book, on what would happen if the human race got radiation poisoning and had to sleep most of the day.
  4. On the fabrication of Israelism by Moshe Zukerman - an old leftist book of culture criticism. I read it when I was way younger and had a bad feeling about it. It was as if it was right and wrong at the same time.
    Now after I re-read it, and have red-pill knowledge, I can see where it went wrong.

Health = I'm making some serious progress in my twice weekly 5k runs. Went to the gym for my first one of the week, and I got an personal best time: 29 minutes and 47 seconds. While this was on a treadmill and didn't really reflect my true ability, it did show me that I have endurance if I pace myself. I applied some of that when running at the park and did my second 5k in a little over 30 minutes. Next time I go, I'll pace myself even better.

Money = Nothing much going on here, just the usual Uber Eats and writing assignments. Interesting/unsettling observation, I drove by the gas station that I used to work at the other day and there was a slew of police cars surrounding it. Go in there for gas the next day, asked the clerk what happened the previous night, and she said that someone got shot in the parking lot. I'm so glad I don't work there anymore. I should have quit years ago, even if it was for something like Uber Eats.

Again, I don't plan on doing Uber Eats forever. I'm giving it another year and some change. By then, I won't need to do Uber Eats for money anymore. In fact, I don't even plan on owning any car at all by 2023. But we'll see. I'm just glad I don't work at the joint I used to work at anymore. Damn.

Chicks = Another date with the chick from last time. No sex this time since she had to work. We just got some tacos. She does Alpha 2 stuff for money on the side, making her home an AirBnB while she rents an apartment out where I'm at while working as a nurse. It's nice to be with a chick like this who actually cares about what she does for a living and who isn't just phoning shit in like I did for so many years.

Learning = I took two spectacular Skillshare courses on email marketing and SEO. It's time to make something out of my blog and youtube channel, and these courses are going to get me there. Let's go.

That's about it for this week. Next week I'll get started on listening to the Millionaire Fastlane and some of my notes on it will appear in this thread.
