I'll definitely keep checking in to see how its going. You seem like you're driven and want to improve yourself.

I was definitely lucky to have started the program around the same time as @sundleboro and @Manganiello but we were all going at our own paces. At the end of the day it is just you out there approaching girls, and u will need to get comfortable doing things by yourself.
Yea I'm actually pretty cool with this honestly. It's actually my usual mode. Just to ignore others and not even try to get any help and be super proud about things.

Maybe it's a good thing even I don't know, I am trying this time to get more help and reach out more, see how it works, but I know at the end of the day, it all comes to down to me and no one else.

I can either do what it takes for me to personally succeed or not, and that is all completely up to me and me alone. And if I do then I can enjoy the rewards. If I can't then I can enjoy the consequences.

Yea I've done some insanely ballsy stuff to be honest. But the biggest thing for me is I need to start being consistent. Consistency is my biggest issue.

That and the ballsy stuff I do, needs to start converting into sex. Some of it is just reckless and pointless. And even though it takes massive balls, it never got me laid at all. Some of my old pulls were fucking crazy too. But that was the past. All that matters is what I can do now, not what i did back then.

I don't think you need to record AA approaches. Focus more on doing them. Ideally, if you were approaching for real and were getting bad reactions constantly, you'd have another guy tag along to observe.

In this day and age, recording people can be risky and you never know when it could come back to bite you in the future. Even if what you are doing is legal, its possible to fuck up quite badly. Back in 2014, I had a scary experience where me and this other GLL guy would record each other with the intention of reviewing the footage over coffee later for critique purposes. This security cow stopped me thinking I was recording a bank. Some other smug bastard guard came asking for my ID. Once they let us go, I could see them eyeing us and calling someone which, spooked us. We didn't return to that mall for a long time. Nowadays, I am 99.9% sure as a black belt the cops would have been called.

I went through a phase of recording my approaches in a city where I was doing terrible. To this day I cannot watch the footage without cringing. I can't say it helped much though in theory, you can be super objective and harsh with yourself and make improvements afterwards.

This is a good insight and something I hadn't thought about. I think you are right though. Or I may just record them and just keep them for myself. Or share with some very trusted person at some point if I feel like it.

I have a small audio recorder already that i use to make audio notes to myself instead of having to write them, so it's really easy for me just turn it on during AA drills and record it.

If you really wanted to record video there are USB stick like cameras you can clip onto your front pockets which will record what is right in front of you whilst not being noticeable at all. Quality is surprisingly good. Just need to make sure it is securely fastened. And your top should be black so it blends in better.

I've got a camera ordered already. I'm going to try it out.

I think audio is the way to go.
Discreet - no noticing the camera and getting labeled a creep
Easy to edit - just have to bleep names, no need to spend time on blurring faces
Others can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think 90% of criticism for you and anything useful for the rest of us will be about the audio

Take it with a grain of salt cause I'm a newbie, but my vote is to do it as long as it's legal in your area. Just be as ethical as possible. At least for me, hearing what others try to talk about (especially if it's longer than "Hey you're hot, can we go on a date sometime" like Andy occasionally recommends) will help me better gauge what works/is socially acceptable/isn't boring when flagging down absolute strangers.

What @Thebastard said is a very good point.

I think that in the beginning you should just focus on the drills. Personally it took a lot just to approach, and if your filming/recording audio those things may be in the back of your mind affecting your performance. 100% of my attention was needed for some of the approaches and if I was trying to get a video it may have given me an excuse to bitch out in situations cuz of thinking like "oh its a bad angle, she may see me filming, etc."

If you feel like the audio/video is a good way to recall what happened in the day or to reflect on how you performed, then the alternatives that were mentioned like micro cameras and your pocket audio recorder may be useful.

Yea I think today, I won't record. Just do the drills. Today is my first day of actual drills, so will be interesting to see how it goes.

Honestly when I first did this, even the time was a huge challenge, but hopefully I'm better than I was in the past.
