Cebu City Expenses

If I get fired from my job due to this whole background check thing, I want to ensure I spend approximately 1,000 USD per month in Cebu City. To do that, I need to seriously monitor my expenses.

In this scenario, we’re assuming I have 10,000 USD saved up.

  • Rental: $285 – $325
    • This ends up between 15,000 – 17,000 PHP.
    • Don’t immediately rent an apartment. Spend 3 days in a hotel when I first arrive in Cebu. Start contacting real estate agents or property managers when I first arrive.
  • Utilities (water, electricity, etc): $160
  • Transportation: $100
    • Don’t use Grab unless I’m taking a girl home.
    • My primary source of transportation will be Angkas. It’s a motorcycle service used like Uber or Lyft. A single ride literally costs $1. So, let’s say I day game 5 days a week: $2 x 5 = $10/week x 4 = $40/month.
    • Only use Angkas when I’m going for day or night game. Most of the time, hang around my neighborhood.
  • Phone and Connectivity: $100
    • Internet costs are roughly the same as in the United States ($50/month).
    • I’m getting reports of prepaid phone plans all over the place. However, here’s a few links about prepaid mobile data:

      • https://www.reddit.com/r/Cebu/comments/b73011/how_much_do_you_need_to_live_decently_in_cebu/ejp4ftb/?context=3
  • Food (my biggest expense): $150 – $250
    • It’s cheaper to eat at a carinderia than it is to cook. They cost $1 – $2 USD for a meal. If you do that twice a day, that leaves you with $4 – $5 USD for eating lunch and dinner.
    • For now, buy eggs, bacon, ketchup and water from grocery store. Sink water is unsafe in Cebu City.
    • Cheapest supermarket seems to be Puregold or Colon Street.

TOTAL: $860 – $980/month

Cebu City Schedule

Before I begin, I need to limit myself to $1,300/month spending. Other than that, nothing else for now. Let’s get to the schedule.

  1. Work: Monday – Friday.
    • Total Work: 6 hours a day.
      • Do 4 hours in morning. Start at 9 after breakfast at 8.

Instant Gratification or Delayed Gratification? It’s Your Choice.

As I’m typing this, I’ve jerked off three times today. And I’ve done it consistently for the past five days. I feel like shit and my motivation is down the hole. My dopamine receptors are shot. Hell, I’ve been spending less than an hour working on my freelance writing business per day, despite the fact my sister and her kids are gone out of the house. I literally have no excuse but to bust out hours of good, hard-earned work.

But it’s time to get back on my feet and chase greatness over feeling good short term.

That’s the real question, isn’t it?

Instant gratification via jerking off or delaying said gratification for future glory, future adventure, foreign & exotic girls, and a successful freelance writing business.

WHAT DO YOU WANT, ADAM?

I know the answer.

It’s time to quit playing around and get to work.

From here on out, I will jerk off only once a week. That’s it. No more, no less.

Let’s get back on the narrow road to success and win.

Schedule

  • Do cardio on Tuesday – Wednesday – Saturday – Sunday
  • Learn/do real estate stuff on Monday – Tuesday (after cardio) – Thursday – Friday – Saturday (before cardio) – Sunday
    • This is accomplished by going over “Buy Your First House In 30 Days” course and following the steps.
  • Hold off on freelance writing FOR NOW.

Head to Springfield on…

02/05/21… I will stay in Springfield and practice game for approximately 3 months until May. Each month, I want to save $1500, with a total of $15,000 saved up.

I will game three times a week, probably M-W-Sat.

I will focus on jogging/cardio with weights tossed in-between.

Call TRT clinic to ship my meds over to Stockton

My Supplement/Medication Schedule

I am on a medication schedule which I believe will best benefit my mental health / inner game as well as assist me throughout the Winter. Since they are quite numerous, I’ve listed them out here:

– Lisinopril 10mg

True Awareness Is Accomplished Through Pain

As I type this in the shower, I can feel the cold water wash under me. An itch threatens to break my concentration, but I realize it is nothing but pure sensation. It is neither good, nor bad. It just is.

There is no better way to write this post than in an environment that demands I react.

To scratch an itch. To move from the hard, cold shower floor to the comfortableness of my gaming chair.

It is the ego attempting to wrestle back control of true presence. True Awareness that I sought so long after.

I am centered, balanced as I type this.

Yesterday, I wondered why I wasn’t truly present in the moment. This is why. The real challenge of refocusing your energy, to see if you’re truly giving it your 100% is to be non-reactive.

If you scratch that itch, the ego has reclaimed you.

You lose a little bit of presence each time you react.

Instead, go into the pain, the itch, the uncomfortableness, and realize it is pure sensation.

Vocalize it if you have to.

Just realize, the more you accept and do not react, the more presence goes into you.

You are not meditating if you are simply aware of everything around you. That is simply the first step.

You must finalize it with the second step and become centered, unreactive, and transform the negative or positive into neutral. To your rambling, ADHD mind and sit through the pain.

Remember

An itch is pure sensation.

Panic, fear, anxiety is pure emotion.

Random thoughts is the adhd, monkey brain doing its own thing.

Your most insightful, breaktaking insights only come with pain.

At the end, you will thank yourself for it.

What does this mean game wise?

Before you send that text, go into deep awareness meditation -> refocus into optimal text game.

Before you go out infield, take a shower in late afternoon (ie. 3pm) -> go into deep awareness meditation -> go out and meditate on train.
