Yeah I wish could document my experiences better to make this thread epic, but im living them and thats good enough for me.

I'm here in San Francisco having a great time. Friday I met up with a friend from high school that I haven't seen in a decade. I was nervous as hell and stoned out of my gourd which definitely didn't help matters lol. We got in at around 1pm or so and the first thing she decided was that we needed some beer. Good idea. We drank some beers and listened to Henry Rollins play some stand-up. He was very funny I'm really glad I got to see his show. Then we found a nice little log bench flanked by some trees and smoked a joint. While in line for the port-a-potty the guy in front of us is asking people for a key and my friend obliges and this dude snorts a little coke offers it to my friend and she does some and then offers me some and I.... refuse. Why? Goddamnit, I'm like the first person in history to regret NOT snorting cocaine lol. I mean in college I realized I was addicted to pot and I'm just extremely afraid that if I try cocaine for some reason I'm going to be addicted. But at the same if the chick you're with does a random bump you should to!!! Efff it you only live once. I had fun but I really wanted to make out with her but didn't make a move and being the nerd who refuses free drugs is probably awkward and unattractive. Anyway I walk her home, then walk my lame ass home. Btw it was her birthday at midnight so I thought I was like for sure going to get laid right? I mean everyone likes to have sex on their birthday so I thought I just had to be in the right place at the right time. Nope. I get back to my friend's house and one of his roomates friends for some reason she likes me and she just starts touching me and playing with my hair and brushing up against my crotch. We were going to out to a bar but then everyone decided to bail instead. I spent the night feeling like crap because I'm a lightweight and I drank all day on an empty stomach.

So the next day she comes over to drop off her pass so the friend I'm staying with can go. Me and him spend most of the day listening to music rocking out to Metallica. Much less interesting going with a dude.

Today I'm just thinking about not doing cocaine and feeling so awkward and anti-social. I think my friend must think I'm like lame milquetoast white bread and I think she's super cool, vivacious, and hot! I'm totally neurotic and wish I could do it over again. Well we're supposed to meet up today to see The Who play later tonight. I keep worrying that shes about to call me up and cancel and I cant get over it.

Feeling crazy I asked my friend where I could score some ecstasy and he suggested to just walk down to haight st. Which I did and the first guy making a hand to hand transaction I knew that was my guy. I go up to him he asks if I want any weed and I say got any ecstasy. I got molly he says follow me to my car. I'm only slightly worried that Im about to be jacked but it goes well I buy 5grams of some blue powder thats supposedly molly and pay 75 bucks (I talked him down from 20/gram to 15/gram so I feel like I didn't get ripped off). And now I'm waiting.

Update: while typing this my friend called to confirm we're meeting up between 630-700. Lets see if she likes the molly......

Yeah I was already at my friend's house and she went home. I'm pretty stupid and that story is lame lol. And by brushing up against my crotch I mean her hand was touching my chubby bulge sticking out of my tight pants... I got no good excuse as to why I wasn't crushing random puss that night. I was still thinking about my day with my friend and I was pretty drunk and out of it. Not going to let opportunities like that slide again, if a girl is going to touch me like that I'm going to get my dick in her.

I can take pics from my flip phone I'm just not that into taking pics. I definitely would feel like a creep posting pics of girls ITT. So that is probably never going to happen, but I will be more proactive and post some more pics of my adventures.

Not asking for girl pics. Thread would be more fun with chip piles and random sights from adventures (like the concerts, etc)

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Litecoin is $70. That's a 40% gain on my investment in ~2 months. Not shabby.

Well the molly I got was almost certainly laundry detergent. We powered thru a good amount of it though just to be sure lol. I had a good time but didn't get any where with my friend she told me that she is seeing someone. Oh well. Came back to LA and met up with the Lord River Rat while he was down here. We went on a couple of hikes, one to the Hollywood sign, and we got some Chinese buffet in Burbank. I had a good time.

I bet 3500 on Mayweather to win about 900. Easy money. Now I'm crushing the $1/2 game on Bovada and looking to move up to $2.5/$5 soon.

Was it above, or below 90 degrees on that hike? If I hike in the summer months, I aim for higher elevations (Baldy, Gorgonio, etc) or hike the few trails in SoCal that parallel rivers. Otherwise, the heat's too much for me :0

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Where are you grinding online from did you get a place? Sorry if i missed it. I'd advise laying off the dope, minus weed. Nothing wrong with having a good time but you can do it without heavier drugs. Youre trying to get your sh** and your life together and you gotta opportunity to do so, you dont need to be doing anything that might cause you to derail and potentially piss it away

I play at libraries and coffee shops. Also I'm staying at my grandmas house watching her cats off and on while she goes to visit her boyfriend which is frequently. Im here now.

I've ony ever done ecstasy once, and shrooms three times. Never tried coke or molly or anything else. I'm not into hard drugs and I'm scared I would become addicted. That being said though next time I'm at a music festival though I'm going to make sure I get some good ecstasy or molly.

haha should have cashed out.

been killing the 5/5 game at Commerce. I'm up 7k in the last 7 days. I feel like Tellah from Final Fantasy 2(4).....I KNOW METEO!!!!!

My game has gone to the next level. I finished reading Every Hand Revealed by Gus Hansen and something about that book just clicked with me. I've been playing much more aggressively at the table 3 betting AQ and other hands and things have gone really well. I'm playing loose preflop raising a lot and picking up pots uncontested with c-bets getting paid off when I hit. It's great.

im sure tahts true to some extent don't expect to continue to win at this rate however, im sure my crushing the game has nothing to do with variance. ive lost AA all in pre to KK lost all-in with a flush to a rivered full house twice in the last few days all for thousand plus dollar pots so it's not like I'm not losing pots too I'm just picking up lots of pots uncontested and getting paid when I get big hands too.

Played last night at a table with Melanie Weisner. She ordered some chicken from food service wrapped it in tin foil and took it home with her. Haha what a rebel! And no I didn't ask to buy any lock funds from her.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

update: fml

i had wayyy too much money riding on the outcome of this world series and it did not turn out well for me.

a few weeks ago i sold some bitcoin to re-up my poker bankroll. i lost the money and then bitcoin prices nearly doubled in that time............

i realize now i don't want to gamble anymore, whether i win or lose at poker id make more just buying bitcoin and holding. its absurd to me to think that i had bitcoin as early as summer of last year and i spent it on online poker lost never got it back.

i finally realize my life has gone off the rails. lol. im not going to live with regret im simply going to do now what i should have done a year or two ago. get a job, play poker within my bankroll and put in tons of volume, and put every dollar i own into bitcoin.

above all else i need to get an apartment of my own and focus on getting laid.

liferoll ~8k.........

embarrassing.

litecoin = $104
