I'm not egotistic enough to assume everyone knows me, so here's some background information on me.
I'm a sophomore in college going back to school for my second year. I'm a Journalism major training to be a reporter. I got into the Game over the summer, and I haven't had a consistent way to practice up till this point. I was a counselor at a christian camp for most of the summer, and I only got off camp grounds a few times. That said, I k-closed a girl in under 6 minutes while walking the streets in Asheville and made out with a girl at camp. In that time I've been reading, studying, and internalizing pick up material. I've made friends with other PUAs and helped newbies with their game. I've focused in on College Game (not easy, there's not much out there) and spent time learning from college alpha's in movies and in real life. The whole summer has been getting ready for my return.
But no pressure.
I've always been the kind of guy to set my sights high. Sometimes too high. I have a sneaking suspicion that I've done that again. I came into this year with ever intention of getting what I've wanted all my life but never had...popularity. I want to get the girls, hang with a group of great guys, have so many people come up and say "Hey Bandit, what's up?" that it borders on scary. Most guys can get one of those things, two if they're really lucky. I want all three. It's a tall order, and I won't lie, I'm nervous. But I'm going in guns blazing anyway.
I'm a disadvantage here. I was too relaxed with my grades last year and lost my scholarships, which I'll have to get back this semester if I'm going to stay in school. That's going to eat up a good bit of my time. I also don't have a car. I had a great car, a beautiful Mazda Rx-8 that I absolutely loved. I lost it in an accident and had to use the insurance to pay for college this year. On top of that, I had a close group of friends that I hung out with last year. I started dating one of them at the beginning of freshman year and that lasted almost all year. I broke it off a month before school ended and the entire group took her side. Turns out they didn't really like me. That hurt. I can understand why though, I was selfish and self-centered, even a little manipulative. I spent the summer fixing that and making myself a better guy.
So I'm going into this year with very few friends, no car, and bad grades.
I've been back for two days. I spent the first day reconnecting with the 2 real friends I still have. One of them was actually my ex-girlfriend, who I've now got a Friends with Benefits situation with. The other is a frat boy who went to a rival highschool. I met him the summer before my freshman year and he's become my best friend. So the first day was spent fooling around with one and getting drunk and chilling with the other. Then we all hung out together for a few hours (they're friends with each other too), and I ended up spending the night in her room. I had to get up early to sneak out without being seen, went back to my room and slept till noon. I spent most of the day hanging out with my ex in her room cause her tv works and she has a kitchen. I knew she was going out to dinner with the old group from last year, and she wanted me to go. Now I wasn't crazy about the idea, but she told me she'd been telling everyone how I'd changed and how I was different. They wanted to see for themselves. I figured worst case scenario, I have a bad night. It went well. Everyone seemed to have a good time, I reconnected with everyone and they liked the new me. One girl, who had always been a bitch to me even before I was excommunicated, got sick and ended up throwing up during the back to school concert. The alpha mentality just clicked. She's in my group, I take care of her. I got her some water, called a maintenance crew, and sat with her to make sure she was ok. It helped that the other guys in the group immediately went to stand 10 feet away from her (squeamish I guess). I ended up walking her back to her room and she thanked me for what I'd done. Damn, that felt good. So I may have just gotten my friends back. Not a bad start for the first two days.
The first day I was kicking myself for not going out and meeting new people. That was what I had planned to do. The second day, I didn't really think about it that much. So on the way back to my room tonight, it wasn't even in my mind. I was walking back from my ex's room after picking up a ipod cable (I left mine at home and needed to charge my phone) and some pasta she'd made. I saw a cute girl I'd met last year. We made plans to get lunch and catch up over the next week. I kept on walking and after a while noticed I was a few steps behind a girl who was talking on the phone. When she hung up I closed the distance and said "Sorry, but I felt creepy walking 5 steps behind you." That got a conversation going all the way back across campus. I absentmindedly walked her back to her sorority house and got her name (I wasn't thinking about game, so I didn't n-close). Walking the short distance to my dorm I saw a cute girl and without thinking said "you looked familiar." (she didn't, but that's not important) She thought I looked familiar too. Turns out we might have had a class together last year. She teased my about my pasta and I joked about it, told her I stole it and that I'd probably end up stealing hers eventually. She told me she didn't make friends and I told her this could be the start of a great friendship after all. I then teased her about her sorority to get back at her (I was still in sorority row at that point). I got her name after talking for a few minutes and went back to my room.
Tomorrow classes start. This is when the social side of things really kicks in. All the new classmates and the people in the caff make it a great opportunity. And for the first time, I think I'm ready.
