Fraternity as defined by Urban Dictionary, is:
A large quantity of males in the same house attempting to gather females (usually sorority girls) to parties that involve an obscene amount of alcohol.
This is partially right and actually kind of funny. Everybody’s heard of the movie “Animal House”, depicting a group of dudes in a frat that party hard and their college years in a big way. Greek life is huge at campus, it gives stressed out students a reason to drink and have unprotected sex in a bathroom. Fraternities offer much more then the given, the opportunity offers brotherhood (strong group of good guy friends, usually A LOT of them), guys that will bail you out of jail for getting MIP’s in Athens, GA (True story), guys you can trust with your own life. And that whole “paying for friends” thing is retarded, what you pay for is the experience and memories you will get while in college. The last two years of my life have been fucking INSANE. Things that I will remember until the day I die and friends that will be there at my wedding. A non Greek (GDI) although may have an awesome time in college, they will never experience the same thing that I’ve experience or even come close to it.
I highly recommend applying to a school with a strong Greek system and going Greek for many reasons, but keeping the audience in mind I must say. Yes, it will get you laid more often then not. Parties every weekend, mixer’s with other sororities, after parties from said mixers, football tailgates, huge social circles to work with, social value and a fuck load of social proof when the situation calls for it, and the list goes on and on. We aren’t all as douchey as the media portrays us to be.
Some things to keep in mind, universities with a Greek system will have their wide range of fraternities. Some will be cool and some will be lame. I hate to say this because it makes me sound like a hypocrite, but it’s a fucking reality. The cool fraternities will get more girls and hotter girls then the lame fraternities. Don’t just join a fraternity JUST for the bitches and booze because you most likely won’t make it through pledgeship with that approach. Try to find a cool frat that you actually click with and you want as people that will eventually influence your life.
Find a balance between the two.
I’m not going to cover this topic in detail, but I feel that is must be at least somewhat mentioned. It’s kind of a huge part of joining a fraternity. It’s called pledgeship and although usually similar, they may differentiate depending on the fraternity. It’s a journey that a “Pledge” must take, usually lasting a semester of college, until he can reap the benefits of being an actual initiated brother. Some frats haze, some do more then others, some don’t at all. I won’t talk about my personal pledgeship that I had to go though, but I will say it was fucking awesome. I will never forget the experience. The guys that I went though with were like brothers to me when it came time for initiation, and the memories were fucking insane.
Some fag frats like to paddle you in the butt with wooden paddles during initiation; lucky mine did not but heed the warning. Some frats will haze the fuck out of you and if that’s the case your life is not worth getting vagina so drop them and call for some help. Regardless, it may or may not be hard to just keep your head up and follow the light at the end of the tunnel.
The typical sorority girl is usually above average on the looks scale, materialistic, likes to party, and may or may not be a slut. Some are actually really fucking cool though so don’t let the stereotype dissuade you. Sorority girls are the same as any other above average looking girl you will meet. They are attracted to the same things as all women are hardwired to be so, the same mindsets that proclaimed PUA’s and naturals have and generally the same vibe that they project. I hate when guys say “DUDE sorority girls are so much harder then real girls!!”, this is complete bullshit and a bad perspective that will stop you from getting laid. They are females with feelings, personality, likes, dislikes, and flaws. Keep that in mind.
Anyways from my experience, there are a couple of small things that differentiate a sorority girl from a non-sorority girl. Sorority girls tend to have a somewhat tribal mindset in regards to the guys that they hook up with and hang out with. It comes with the territory, most Greeks hang out with other Greeks. But from what I’ve seen and experienced, a sorority girl is much more likely to hook up with you if you are in a fraternity. It’s almost like a social value thing and almost a social “norm” among us Greeks. Not saying that it is impossible to hook up with one if you’re not in a fraternity, just stating that it’s not as easy. Also the myth that if you hook up with the lower tier (UGLER) sorority girl, then you will blow your chances with the high tier (HOTTER) sorority girl. I hate to sound so shallow, but again it’s a fucking reality. I’ve hooked up with both tiers, gained a reputation and rode the wave to where I’m at today. Basically what I’m trying to say is don’t let certain perspectives get in the way of your success. An attractive dude is an attractive dude PERIOD. What Greek life provides you with is OPPORTUNITIES and LOGISTICS that non Greek life cannot. Become attractive, take every extra opportunity, get laid more.
MINDSETS AND REPUTATIONS
The sex worthy man in college lives by certain mindsets and follows certain principals regardless if they know they even exist. They all have a couple of things in common as well as the same approach to common college situations. 98% of dudes that do well with women and are in College are indeed NATURALS. Classic PUA shit like routines, routine stacks, “NEGS”, and other stuff for the most part fucking fail in the college scene. Try it out and you’ll soon realize what I mean by this. The PUA approach will get you labeled as a fucking creepy dude or a weird dude, both generalizations will not bring you success.
Funny story actually, I was once in my Greek village community room studying for a midterm with some sorority girls who where in the same class as me, and this random dude from another fraternity approaches us. Dude and his bro starts gaming both of the girls old school style with routines like “The Cube”, some other Style and Mystery bullshit, and really really bad attempts at push pull. I watched in agony as the girls gave “fake” interest just to be nice, and the bros took it as genuine interest unfortunately. It was hard to watch. After about 10 min of this debauchery, they leave (OLD school game always seems to come, bang bang bang bang, leave).
It just looked….fake. Hard to explain, but girls can also sense this kind of thing. The second they are out of ear shot, one of the girls say, “OMG that dude is so weird”. It sucks to see shit like that go down, but dude its common sense.
First off, you see these girls ALL THE TIME and you see their friends ALL THE TIME, if you use the same routine at parties or randomly at social gatherings shit will start to look weird. With that said, this brings me to how it should be done and what you should focus on doing.
Within my fraternity of about 80 or so dudes, only a good 6 or 7 of us pull girls on the regular. Regardless of the fact that 80% of these guys are COOL AS FUCK with the potential to pull as much as me or any other dude that has success with women, if certain principals aren’t followed and action isn’t taken then success will never come. In college or even the real world, there’s a lot more to the equation then just being cool as fuck. But regardless, its still a necessary part of the equation for the massive success that you’re looking for.
What’s considered cool? And how do I become cool?
My definition of cool consists of a mixture between socially acceptable and non-reactivity. It’s a very hard term to describe with a lack of detail, but that’s basically how I view the idea. For better understanding, I’ll give an example of three different guys in college, and for each a list of what makes them cool and what makes then not cool and what makes then sex-worthy, and not sex-worthy.
DUDE ONE – NOT SEX-WORTHY AND NOT COOL (CREEPER)
– Tries to hard to be cool (They just care too much)
– Reactive as fuck (show’s negative emotional reactions to different stimuli)
– Dresses socially unacceptable (Have some fucking style, its not that hard)
– Way to much intent when it comes to the opposite sex (Number one reason for the creeper status)
– Social parasite (Value taker, obvious agenda)
– You don’t want to be this dude, but most that are oblivious to the knowledge needed in order to change. These are the dudes that girls complain to guys like me about, asking me to kick them out of our parties. It sucks because it’s not their fault for the majorities are fairly oblivious. They don’t know where to start in order to change. Their internal mindsets are fucked, they care about shit way to much. You know who you are, and if you feel like you fit into this category then keep reading. Me along with the team at College Flirt are here to help you become a cool and sex-worthy man. It’s never ever too late for change.
DUDE TWO- NOT SEX-WORTHY AND COOL (NORMAL)
– Generally sociable (Knows how to talk to people)
– Generally neutral to be around (Sometimes fun, sometimes chill)
– Value neutral (Gives value, takes value, socially acceptable)
– BASICALLY JUST NEUTRAL. Girls like you and you may have a lot of cool dude friends, you get laid on occasion but not as much as you would like. You lack the trait of a TAKER. You let opportunities pass you by as a reaction to fear, laziness, or a lack of knowledge. Girls put you in the friend zone more then not, possible hookups tend to “stale out”, and you sometimes lack the control to close the deal. You are the normal average Joe, not an extreme located at both ends of the spectrum. A lot of you are also oblivious to missed opportunities as well as the potential that you contain. Change a couple of minor things, and your success rate will explode.
DUDE THREE – SEX-WORTHY AND COOL (MANWHORE)
– Very sociable (Always meeting new people at parties, always the first to introduce yourself and social functions, etc.)
– Comes off as cocky (they have a reason to be supposedly)
– Un-reactive to an extent (Nothing really emotionally phases you, it just rolls over you like water on a ducks back. Fake it till you make it.)
– Value giver more then value taker (Brings the fun at parties rather it be starting up a game of flip cup, providing drinks just for the sheer enjoyment of being a nice dude and making people happy, making sure people are having a good time at parties)
– Social connector (Introducing people at parties and offering them potential new friends)
– Takes initiative and leads (This is the number one thing that separates DUDE TWO from DUDE THREE. Dude 3 will actually peruse a girl that he wants rather then just wait for the girl to come to him. I honestly believe this is the one of the only things that separates my success with some of my other brother’s success rates. For the most part, I’m usually the first dude to walk up to a hot group of girls at a party we throw.)
– Man reputation (This is fucking awesome. Most would think this reputation would cock block you from getting laid, but in reality it’s the exact opposite. Quoted from Tucker Max himself, “A key that unlocks many locks is considered a master key. A lock that is unlocked by many keys is considered a shitty lock”. At it’s roots its social proof at a large scale view. I’ll go into detail in a later topic)
As stated earlier, self-proclaimed naturals generally have DUDE THREE’s characteristics. Two naturals may be completely different in certain aspects of their personalities but again this is just a generality. For instance, you will not see me at a party going completely insane jumping off of balconies, running around wasted without a shirt, and grabbing girls for make outs left and right. But I know a couple of guys that pull a lot that DO do these things. My approach to this is a lot more relaxed, a lot more woooooosh and smooth, and it gets the same results for the most part. Don’t worry; I’ll share my exact approach to college game in a bit. But for now, I’m trying to cover the general mindsets that you should incorporate before you think about adding your on unique flare to the idea.
As for reputations, they can hurt or help your over all success rate in a big way. This is college, you will hang out with the same people OVER AND OVER AND OVER, people will talk and everyone will create a general mental description of every person whom they are in constant contact with. As a sex-worthy man, you want to aim for the manwhore reputation. A common misconception is the player reputation and there exists a really thin line between the two. The manwhore rep is earned through having sex with a lot of girls. It is EARNED. Every guy comes to college with a blank slate, a white canvas that he can paint as he see’s fit. It’s an opportunity to re-invent yourself as the person that you want to be. I took this to an extreme and fucking gave myself a new first name because I disliked my original. Occasionally I’ll get called out when someone glances at my ID or see’s my name written down on a test and it’s usually a pretty funny scenario. Anyways we’re getting off topic, back to the manwhore reputation. Once earned, it will make hooking up with girls much easier. Once the general Greek population knows you as the guy that has sex with a lot of hot girls, the idea of having sex with you just becomes socially acceptable. Opportunities will present them selves more frequently and girls will game you out of sheer curiosity.
My personal take on the situation, I’m a manwhore without being a player. When ever I hook up with a girl, I make it fucking CLEAR that number one I don’t want a relationship, number two I do this kind of thing all the time, number three I try to be as genuine and authentic as I can. I will never lie to get into a girls pants, and although it does happen I will never intentionally lead a girl on just to have sex with her. I’m a nice dude and I understand that women are fucking human beings. It sucks being the guy when you find yourself in a situation where you’re emotionally hurting a girl. I always let the girl know it’s her choice to have sex with me, and I could care less if she didn’t. Treat women like a human being, not a talking sex toy. Call them after a one night stand just to check in, this small action makes a big difference. Now the player status is a little bit different. A player will lie, cheat, and steal in order to get into girls panties. Yes he may be awesome with women, but he also treats them like shit. It’s just not cool and you will get shit tested like no other for this approach. Focus on being a nice asshole. Not just an asshole.
As for the creeper reputation, now this shit sucks. This rep is also EARNED. For the sex-worthy and cool dudes, you may also be called a creeper on occasion but this does not mean you have the creeper reputation. If you have a penis and intend to use it, you will sometimes come of a little to strong and as a result creep the girl out. It comes with the territory. But dudes that do this on a constant basis with girls that they see OVER AND OVER AND OVER will eventually be categorized as a creeper.
How do you prevent this outcome?
It’s all about the balance between being a fun dude mixed with the level of sexuality you portray when you approach a girl or group of girls. Tim from Real Social Dynamics calls this idea Woo + Intent. The creeper shows way to much sexuality when approaching and not enough of a fun vibe. On the dance floor, the creeper will grab random girls by the waste and start fucking dry humping them. Although this can work if you do it with the right amount of swag, don’t attempt it. There are better approaches with higher chances of success. Shit like this is okay for club world where you will most likely never see that girl again, but in the college bubble of reality it will almost always backfire. In the beginning, just focus on being a cool sociable dude. Once you have the basics down you can start experimenting with getting sexual and creating sexual vibes.
FRAT PARTY GAME
Ahh frat parties, the joy of getting absolutely shit faced among good friends and really hot girls. College is notorious for them and they will be one of your main outlets to getting laid while under age. In my unique situation, I have some advantages that others may not. My fraternity throws the party, I know 60% of the people at said party, I’ve already hooked up with a lot of the girls at the same party, thus my sense of entitlement will be higher then lets say if I were at a bar where I knew only two people. It’s more of an inner game principal, which will be apparent when with use of my outer game. Its almost comparable to cheating the system and boy do I take advantage of it. Although it can be considered cheating, it still provides me with something that will make me better with women in the general sense. Reference points. Every time I get into a unique situation with another girl and I react a certain way to said situation, If it’s a positive outcome then my mind will sub-consciously cache said reaction as “successful” and vice versa for any action that is “unsuccessful”. Whenever a similar situation repeats its self, my mind will dig through my memory banks for the “successful” reaction I’ve had in the past and that is what I will usually end up doing again. The way that human’s learn is fucking incredible. But anyways, I acquire hundreds of these reference points a night eventually molding my reactions to be more successful rather then unsuccessful. In other words, I get better generally better with women the more I expose myself to these situations. So it’s all good. But regardless, if you follow the principals and mindsets that I’ve explained above for long enough, then shit will just start to click. It’s inevitable.
RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT
So it’s Friday night and your best bud calls you up to tell you about some bad ass frat party that’s going down just around the block. Or on the other end of the spectrum, you’re 100 dollars short, tired of running around to grocery stores buying 30 racks of fratty light and your phones dead from all of the phone calls you’ve received about this “bad ass party” that you and your frat are about to throw. Whatever the case, this party is about to go down. And it’s time to make some memories.
The typical party has a rhythm to it. Living in two different party houses for almost two years, I started to recognize this fact. If you know the rhythm, you can use it to your advantage. If a party is said to start at a certain time, then for the most part people really won’t start coming in until about an hour and a half later. The parties we throw start at 10pm, but around 11:30pm is when shit really starts to get crazy. Show up early, get yourself in a relaxed and sociable mood, and drink alcohol if that’s your thing. The key thing to remember here is to focus on becoming smooth and social. Do not try and hit on girls at this time. Sure you can talk to them and socialize, but don’t go over the top with anything. Save that for later on in the night. As the night progresses, girls will start to loosen up along with the reactions that you will get from them.
As for me, I spend this time chatting up my bros, playing games of beer pong and vibing with my female friends. And if you have to ask, yes I am a drinker. Can alcohol be used as a crutch? Hell yes. Have I used it as a crutch in the past? Hell yes. But all in all, it just makes things more enjoyable. Dealing with drunk annoying fucks while dead sober at a 4 hour party fucking sucks. I’ve been there and it’s not fun. Remember guys, the goal here is to have fun and get laid.
By 12:00am, the party is usually still slowly getting bigger. People leaving their pre-game sessions have arrived and girls leaving shittier parties are starting to arrive. The dance floor is finally starting to grow and people are starting to show the effects of alcohol. It’s prime time baby. From 12am to around 12:45am,is generally when I start bringing out the big guns. This is when I game. The girls are loose, chodey dudes have already approached and failed, and most importantly if you were actively trying to put yourself in a social mood and in a good vibe, you will be in a good headspace to make shit happen. Once 1am hits, the really hot girls start to leave, and girls are starting to get to the point of WAY TOO FUCKED UP. is bad, so stay away. I’m not saying you absolutely cannot pull a semi sober hot girl home after 1am, cause its totally possible. I’m trying to explain that you’re chances will be BETTER if you attack within a certain time frame. Don’t take shit that I say to an extreme, there will always be exceptions.
ALCOHOL AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE HUMAN BRAIN
College students just love to drink. It’s a huge part of college culture so I felt it needed its own mini section. Personally, I love the shit. People drink it to loosen up, make shitty times fun and make fun times even more enjoyable. It makes our world go round. Dudes drink it get the balls they need to approach that hottie at the bar and girls drink it to provide an excuse for having sex with that random dude in a bathroom. It happens. What does this all have to do with picking up girls in college? It’s huge. Dealing with a sober girl and a drunk girls are two different things. I’ve gotten away with some retarded shit
Within the college party realm, there exists two ways to go about approaching a girl. Depending on the situation, I’ve used both ways and have gotten equally awesome success. First, is the slow and drawn out method, which is perfect for girls that are apart of your immediate social circle or girls that come to your same parties over and over. And second, is the same night lay approach, which is basically exactly like the first approach only extremely condensed. Both have the same end result, the pull. The second approach is perfect for random girls that you’ve only just met, go to entirely different schools, or are friends with girls who are in your immediate social circle. Focus on using each accordingly.
SLOW AND DRAWN OUT
Perfect for the fratstar. Hanging out with the same sorostitutes over and over gives you the opportunity to game them slowly. No need for over the top “IM FUCKING AWESOME DUDE” type of shit in this type of game. It’s all about being cool and making shit happen. This is my general approach to this style of game. I’ll meet a girl whom I want to have sex with and at first come off as a chill and social dude. With my manwhore reputation in effect, the thought of having sex with me as already entered her mind and if it hasn’t it will soon enough. I’ll see them at parties, tease them, flirt with them, and play beer pong with them but won’t actually go for the pull. I do this a couple of times, eventually get their number and eventually add them on facebook. All the while, their intrigue is rising and my attraction boosting tactics are constantly being fired. For the most part, I’ll keep things PG and fun. As stated earlier, your reputation will play a HUGE part in this style of approach so keep that in mind. I’ll start sending random funny value giving text messages or chatting them up on facebook. Every time I see them whether it be at a small get together, at the frat house, or at a party, my sexuality will slowly increase. If I played my cards right, by now the sexual tension should be extremely obvious. Sexual tension is awesome. Shit will just explode. Finally I’ll hit said hottie up over text for a get together at my place or pull the trigger at a party. Once the sexual tension and attraction is built, pulling the trigger shouldn’t be an issue.
SAME NIGHT COLLEGE LAY
Now this is where the real fun is. Raging at a party and noticing a hot little brunette with glasses and short skirt drinking hunch punch next to the beer pong table. Ahh, I love this. What would HPRJ do? What would the Cool AND Sex-worthy dude do? Walk up to her and introduce yourself.
THE PARTY OPENER
I’m sure you’ve heard this before. If not, you aren’t reading enough shit. Well here it comes….THE OPENER DOESN’T MATTER. You can open with literally anything. It all comes down to your mindsets and outlook on what actions you take. Its college and it’s a party, people WANT to make new friends. Especially with a cool sociable dude like yourself, you have to understand this reality. My usual opener consists of about three different opening lines. I’ll usually take the theme of the party into play when opening girls also, just to mix things up. Or sometimes even notice something of interest, and comment on it. Whatever the case, the opener should only be viewed as a CATYLIST to the actual interaction. It’s not that important. Ready for the magic words of leg opening properties!!??
Hey, I haven’t met you yet. What’s your name?
YOU. Who are you?
GROUP OF GIRLS
Hey! Yall look fun.
THEME PARTY OPENERS
Your costume(s) suck.
I like your wig, skirt, ears, etc.
Guys stress WAY to much about the opener.
It’s all irrelevant in the long run. As long as you have the correct internal process in the works the moment you approach, it will go well. I’ve opened with stupid shit in the past like, “I HAVE A REALLY SMALL DICK”, which somehow worked. Girls can read the vibe I’m throwing out, the vibe of “I’m a fun sociable dude and I want to get to know you”. Try experimenting with the default opener, “Hey, what’s your name?” while smiling with an outreached hand. Look at her right in the fucking iris. She’ll know the deal. They always do.
AFTER THE OPENER
This is where most guys choke. Understandable, you have a really hot girl standing one foot away from your face looking all nice and desirable and you think to yourself, “What the hell should is to this girl to sound unique, interesting, and funny??”. Yet nothing comes to mind. It’s almost as if there was a glitch in the memory banks of your mind and shit just stopped working. I know this feeling very well, everyone in such a lifestyle has experienced this exact scenario many times.
It sucks. I’ve even come to the conclusion that AA (Approach Anxiety) exists because men hate having to experience the painfully awkward social vacuum that it causes. Most would agree that AA stems from the fear of rejection, but in my experience I’m not really afraid of getting rejected because my mind has already re-wired that response thus cutting any emotional ties. If a girl walks away or acts uninterested after the opener, I assume my approach was flawed or she was just mentally insane. Yet, I still get AA. Thus how I got to my initial conclusion. Anyways, back to the topic at hand. Look guys, the reason why your mind goes blank is because you’re unintentionally putting said girl on a pedestal. You think she’s hot and you must impress her to get into her pants, but with this perspective you are shooting yourself in the foot so to speak. To prove this to yourself, walk up to a fatty or grenade and open her as you usually would with a girl that you want. Did you run out of stuff to say after the opener? Most likely the answer will be no. It’s all in your head dudes.
So what should you say? I’ll tell you what not to say as the majority of guys end up saying the same thing. Actually, asking the same things. Average dude walks up to hot chick, opens her with hello, she responds with a smile and says hello back, average dude’s mind goes blank, plan B is initiated and he starts asking stupid chode questions that he could care less about. What are these stupid chode questions you ask?
So do you go here?
What’s your major?
Who are you friends with?
Can I fuck you in the ass?
Haha I’m kidding about that last one. But seriously, I see dudes do this at our parties all the time. What ends up happening is girl realizes dude is just like every other dude that’s approached her at a party or bar and he’s boring as fuck. On the other end of the spectrum, asking questions can be a good thing only if you are generally interested in what you’re asking about. Pepper them in a fun conversation and actually get to know the girl, THIS is very important and I’ll get to it in a bit.
So now that we’ve covered what not to do, I’ll get to what I would do. I’ll create a little mock conversation for you bros to show you what’s worked for me in the past.
Me: You’re adorable. (FUCKING SMILE but not in a cheesy grin kind of way, almost more like a half lipped smirk)
Her: Awe thanks! What’s your name?
Me: HPRJ. What about you? (Shake her hand with one hand and lightly grab her hip at the same time with the other hand. Linger a little longer then normal but not too much)
Her: Oh I like that name! I’m Ashley.
Me: Aww thanks hun, wish I could say the same about yours! (Make sure it’s obvious you’re only teasing her. Most girls will playfully hit you on the arm after that last emotionally charged comment which is an awesome sign for the record. Also see how she gave me a compliment? Reward her with a hug or a equally small compliment.)
Her: Haha what ever jerk!
Me: Haha so what, are you are freshmen? You look like a lost little dog (See how I peppered in a question within a rather good conversation? That’s exactly how it should be done. Mixed with another emotionally charged statement, her attraction towards me will grow with every single one)
Her: Hahah yea I am actually. You we’re one at some time!!
Me: Yea true story, I bet you’re horrible at beerpong! Speaking of, we’re up next! (Lead her to the beerpong table and start up a game. Phase one, complete.)
So that’s an extremely general conversation that I’ve experience in one way or another. Notice how I jump STRAIT into teasing the girl HARD AS FUCK. Hot girls aren’t used to this sort of treatment and they fucking love it. Brad from Real Social Dynamics once wrote an article on what to do after the opener and he gave some really awesome ideas that I implement commonly. Instead of asking lame chode questions like every other guy does, focus on making statements instead. You can ask questions without actually asking a question and instead reforming it as a statement. It gives shit color and makes the conversation fun.
Instead of asking, “So what do you do?”
Simply state, “Alright so you seem way to nice for your own good. Service industry?”
Or instead of asking, “What kind of music do you like?”
State, “Please tell me you listen to (Insert band/genre of music here), because that would be awesome”
The key thing you want to achieve after the opener is setting up the correct vibe. I rarely run out of things to say because I follow the statement not questions rule, and I work off of what she responds to me with with teasing, appreciation and even sometimes interest. If she tells me she’s from a town that one would consider “Country” I would playfully call her a hick. If she tells me she listens to Justin beiber, I will either jokingly pretend like I’m a beiber super fan or tease her for being a child molester. You really want to focus on setting up the flirty vibe and getting her out of her shell.
So far we’ve covered the topics below,
1. Open with chill or direct line
2. Focus on statements not questions and creating a flirty vibe right from the start
Next part of the equation is extremely important and if you choose not to act by it then you WILL NOT get laid. It’s called physical escalation and it can be done in many ways. Through out the interaction, windows of escalation will present themselves constantly.
For example, If a girl gives you a compliment or says something you love then you fucking hug her and tell her you like what she just did/said in some way or another. Same goes for high fives. If she says something dorky, mess up her hair and call her a dork. I do this one a lot actually, but be careful cause it has backfired in the past. If their hair is all done up and nice…..then don’t ruin it. If it’s just down and looks good then go to town on that shit. You want her to view you as a playful dude, not one who’s afraid to touch her. Also very important note, my calibration is pretty tight when in field SO my spidey senses tingle hard when I know i’ve made her even slightly uncomfortable with any sort of physical escalation. Keep an eye out for any signs that she might give, like backing up or sometimes even making a weird face. If that happens, back the hell up and say something funny. Wash rinse repeat.
Anyways, just learn how to recognize these windows of escalation and jump through them when they appear. While playing beer pong, hug her/high five her for making a shot, and jokingly push her away and tell her she has to find a replacement cause she’s making you loose the game. Hold her hand when you lead her to the dance floor because yea you better fucking be leading her to the dance floor or to the keg or even better to the bathroom for the pull. I’ll cover leading in more detail in a bit.
PROVIDING SEXUALY CHARGED EMOTIONS
Say this sentence aloud three times. “If I don’t get sexual, I will not get laid”. Say it until it’s fucking ingrained into your head. This is one of the main elements that dudes lack and wonder why they aren’t getting laid and being put into the friend zone. Dude look, you want to get the girl thinking dirty dirty thoughts about you within 10 min of opening her. Sexually charged statements are the best way to do this along with escalation, which I’ve covered above. If I’m talking to some slam piece at a party and I notice her great ass, I’ll let her know how I feel about her great ass. If I initially set up a fun and flirty vibe in the begging like I was supposed to, then saying, “wow you have a great ass” and being completely authentic about the thought will instill the wanted sexually charged emotion within the girl.
Then grab her hand and make her do a little spin for you (Escalation + sexually charged emotions = FUCK yea), It would make her blush. Lines like “You have really nice lips”, or “Mmm you smell delicious”, or even, “I want to put a baby in your tummy”, all have the same purpose.
Dirty thoughts of you and her together are the goals here. They actually turn her on, which is exactly what you want. Just be authentic as a Man. Careful not to go overboard and become super creeper though. Saying shit like, “Your ass is so nice I want to insert my penis into its brown eye”, for the most part is NOT fucking cool. Don’t be a retard. Again, this is why setting up the initial vibe after the opener is so important; It lets you get away with sexual lines which in the end are a necessity.
QUALIFICATION AND VIBING
As the interaction progresses, it’ll get easier and easier to have a fun conversation with that girl. Comfort levels will rise and the initial awkwardness will eventually pass. You can almost feel the shift; conversation will just start to flow. At this point, I’d usually isolate the girl from the rest of the party by bringing her outside to smoke a cigarette with me or just away from the music so we can have a one on one.
This is when you really get to know the girl along with letting her know that she’s not just some girl you’re trying to fuck. The way I personally qualify a girl isn’t really a step in the process of the pull, it’s more like a passive element that I pepper in throughout the entire interaction. In a nutshell, qualification is the act of inexplicitly letting the girl know you like her for her. It’s almost as if her personality and “awesome” traits have won you over.
The lack of this element will show its head in the end when you get massive amounts of LMR (Last Minute Resistance) and have no idea why. So what do I do to qualify? It’s actually really simple. If she tells you something about herself that you actually find cool, let her know. If she tells you she plays the piano, let her know that that’s fucking awesome. And then jump into the topic of music, killing two birds with one stone. If she mention’s not being in a sorority, hug her and tell her that you are relived because most of the sorority girls that you meet are half retarded.
All right, so far we have covered the topics below,
1. Open with a chill or direct line
2. Focus on statements not questions and creating a flirty vibe right from the start
3. Remember to jump through windows of escalation
4. Provide sexually charged emotions
5. Let her know that you like her for her awesomeness
6. Emotionally vibe with the girl and create connections
The sex-worthy man in college will act as the leader of most interactions that involve the opposite sex. Since the beginning of time, the Man was the leader and the Woman was the follower. Wow that sounds sexist as fuck, but what ever. It’s a reality. Women are hardwired to react sexually to certain qualities in a man and leading is one of them. He leads the conversation and he physically leads the girl all the way to the pull. This small concept also fall’s into the same categories that must be viewed as passive elements peppered throughout the entire interaction. It’s a constant thing.
Think of it this way, the more you successfully lead her the more comfortable she will get with the idea of you taking charge. If a girl we’re to lead the guy all the way to the pull, for the most part she will end up feeling like a slut. You will not get laid. But if you take action and passively lead her in several different ways all the way to the bedroom, then the responsibility is put on you. She will not feel like a slut, and say something along the lines of, “It just kind of happened”.
In the majority of my interactions, I’ll use similar methods to lead the girl that I’ve used many times in the past. These methods are tried and true, so make sure and deploy when the situation presents itself.
So I’m at a party chatting up a hottie and I suddenly realize the conversation is not moving things forward. I grab her hand and start pulling her to the keg outside while yelling “MORE BEER FOR ME”. While walking thought the crowd of drunk people, I’ll slightly let go of her hand just to see if she squeezes back harder. She does. Sign things are going according to plan. We get to the keg and I poor both of us a beer. We continue to talk for a bit and I accidentally drop my beer. I blame her for her clumsiness, steel her cup and chug the rest. I laugh in amusement. I then grab her hand again and say its time to rage. I pull her to the dance floor and in fact, fucking rage.
I get tired of dancing. I pull her outside because I want to talk to her while a smoke a cig. I pretend to blow the smoke in her face. She fakes being upset. I laugh at her and tell her that she’s so cute when she’s mad. My cig burns out.
I pull her to the beer pong table. I set up the cups and ask her to find the balls. I chuckle on the inside. She sucks at beer pong and I tease her for this. I teach her the correct way how to shoot. I tell her to use her massive cleavage to distract the other team. She does so. We win. I give her a hug and tell her she’s the beer pong champion but only gets a ribbon cause I’m keeping the trophy. I lead her back to her friends and start chatting with them for a bit. She leaves to go to the bathroom and I win her friends over. I tell her friends that I think their friend is cute. Girl comes back and I leave to chat with my bros. While I’m gone, friends tell girl how awesome I am and basically she should have sex with me. Later while chatting up another hot girl, original girl walks up to me and steals me away…
Okay now re-read the passage above and count how many instances I lead the girl. This is EXACTLY what you should be doing. Fucking lead, lead and lead I cannot stress that enough.
MYSTICAL LAND CALLED THE DANCEFLOOR
It’s a place where dry humping, public masturbation, physical escalation and basically having sex are considered socially acceptable. And it’s the place where a large part of my work is executed. On the dance floor you can accomplish so many things at once that you wouldn’t be able to if you were just chatting with a girl on the porch. Physical escalation, sexually charged actions, leading and even qualification. This place is the shit.
At one point or another, I will always eventually lead my girl to the dance floor. Or backtracking quite a bit, dance with a girl whom I was using the slow approach with. There are just so many benefits and I can get away with so much shit that will have a positive effect on my success.
All right so you opened a girl, set up a flirty vibe, qualified, acted as a leader, sexually charged her emotions, and made connections. So far so good, things are going in the right direction. But you just need that extra push of emotions or an excuse to go for the make out. This is where the magic happens.
I pull her to the dance floor. She grinds on me hard, I squeeze her hips almost as if I’m having sex with her. My body moves to the beat while I move her hips left to right and mirror my feet hitting the ground, left to right. My hands run down the outside of her thighs and while bending down, grab her knees. We get lower and lower, shits starting to get nasty. The beat starts to rise and I pull her hands put in the air while still moving to the beat. My hands rub down her arm, one arm goes around her waste and pulls her close with the other gently grabs her neck and squeezes it without actually choking her. Her eyes close and she tilts her head back in pleasure. I spin her around and we start dancing face to face. My right knee is in between her legs and I gently apply pressure to her goodies. She’s obviously turned on. I pull her close and we continue to dance to the beat. I look her dead in the eyes for a second, stair at her lips for a second, then dart back and forth between her eyes and her lips. She smiles. I smirk, gently grab her chin and go in for the kiss. She closes her eyes and lets me in. I grab the nape of her neck and pull her hair while gently biting on her bottom lip. I pull back, smile and lead her off of the dance floor.
And that’s how it’s fucking done. Haha, it sounds like something out of a romance novel. Generally this is exactly how it goes for me 80% of the time. She may not let me kiss her the first time around which has happened many times, but that’s really easy to get around. It’s as simple as pulling back, turning her around, dancing with her a bit more, amping up the sexuality, and going for it again. Wash, rinse, and repeat until the desired result.

GETTING THE PHONE NUMBER
It’s as simple as asking for it. A lot of guys put some mystical importance the idea of “getting the digits” or what ever, but it should be viewed as simply pushing things forward. What works for me? I literally pull my phone out of my pocket mid conversation, hand it to her, and ask her to save her phone number and full name for facebook reasons.
Not to mention forgetting her name the next day and having to deal with a possible awkward text scenario. By asking for her phone number in this manner, it comes off as less needy then something like, “hey we should hang out soon if you want to, can I have your phone number?”. Not saying something like that wouldn’t work cause I’m sure it could and it has, but regardless this is what I would do in a similar situation. Also try to steer away from asking for the phone number at the end of the interaction and then just leaving. It’s just fucking cliché. Do it mid conversation, put the phone back in your back pocket or hell take a picture of her shoes and tell her you’re making it her caller ID picture so you wont forget who she is. What ever, be creative. Just don’t chit chat, get phone number, and be like “cool well I’ll text you and we can meet up some time! Good to meet you! I’m a fucking chode!”
Alright so you have the digits. Sweet tits. Step numero dos when it comes to the telephono, is make sure she has yours. You don’t want to text her a couple of days after and her respond with, “who’s this”. I personally fucking hate having to deal with that, but IF that happens I’ll usually reply with something funny and then eventually tease her for not adding my phone number in the first place. For example…
Me: Thanks for all of the free drinks the other night, your tooling skills are among the best (:
Her: Haha who’s this
Me: GODZILLA PENIS
Her: hahaha omg who is this!?
Me: shame on you, and here I was thinking you were socially savvy. Its HPRJ dork
There ya go. Anyways, so I have her phone number and we’re still chatting at the bar. Shits going good. What’s a creative way to make sure she has mine? Easy. I do it every single time and it always accomplishes what It’s meant to. She adds her number, gives you your phone back, and this is what you do….
You: hey dork, guess who
You: hey come save me this girl won’t leave me alone (credit el two step)
And boom, you get an emotional rise out of her which is good PLUS she has a saved text from you when she looks through her texts the morning after considering you did not pull and are going to go for a day two. It’s funny; sometimes I’ll do this and end up splitting before the pull. Then out of no where the girl will respond to my original text at bar closing time with something like, “hey you where are you?” or “hey what are you doing after the party?”. BANG BANG booty call, end game.
Ahh and we finally arrive at the end. This is the end goal for this thing we all call “the game”. And unfortunately, there are many facets that affect the success of these final steps. If everything else before was done correctly for the most part, women understand the men can will and will “fuck up” some time or times within the interaction it just all depends on how many times you do, then you should be on your way to the glory land.
The vibe you portray from step one will MASSIVELY effect the outcome of her either going home with you or going home with her best gal friends. In the business world, it’s called the win/win scenario. How the hell does this apply to sex you ask? Well look, if you as the man express the belief that sex is merely a fun act for BOTH PARTIES to enjoy, and not some idea that the Man chases after the women in order to obtain the sex while the women makes him “work for it”, and you express this belief as in PEPPER IT WITHIN THE ENTIRE INTERACTION, then the women will eventually enter your reality and start to agree with you. Its almost as if you said, “look lady we both benefit from fucking all night tonight, not just me” but not as explicit. You must push your reality on the girl until she understands that you do this sort of thing all of the time. To you, sex is fun and both parties benefit from it.
I spoke a little about this next topic earlier in the chapter, but when it comes to the pull I think it’s pretty relevant. It’s called sexual tension. From my experience, the higher the sexual tension between you and a girl becomes, AKA the more horny you make her, then the better chance you have at actually ravishing her. Humans have extremely primitive sides to them, ESPECIALLY when it comes to sex.
Best ways to turn a girl on? I’ve mentioned a couple already, but seriously dance floor land is fucking key. This place alone has gotten me the lay on multiple occasions. Remember, sexually charged emotions + escalation + pulling back at the right moments = sexual tension.
Fuck logistics. If the logistics don’t align with what you’re trying to do, then pull her to a fucking bathroom. It’s a college house party, which means the bath room’s are a lot cleaner then a packed out bar for the most part, people won’t necessarily be slamming on the door the entire time. I’ve literally gone strait from the dance floor to the bathroom due to the extreme sexual tension, and ended up getting the lay because of its precise timing. Again, humans can be fucking primitive. Or hell, go and cherish your new 96 Honda Civic. If it’s outside of your reality, pull it in. Women are not as nice and innocent as some of you guys may want to believe.
But if you aren’t comfortable with the option listed above, then there are other ways. Screen her through out the interaction by asking simple questions such as,
You: So are you the DD tonight?
You: Who did you come here with?
You: Where do you live?
You: What are yall doing after?
Eventually you’ll find out the deal. If she’s driving, where she’s going to end up and whom she’s going with. Look, the key thing you have to remember is that you must put ALL of the responsibility on you to make the pull happen. You are the man, she is the woman. You chase, she submits. If she does otherwise, she will feel like a and not sleep with you in order to rationalize the idea of her being a slut.
But in all honestly, I think the majority of my lay’s come from the slow and drawn out approach. Also know as, working my social circle. Thus, logistics are rarely an issue because by the time I pull the trigger my girl will create the logistics necessary for me us to have some fun. But HPRJ, you just said if a girl did that she would feel like a slut! Yea I did say that. But in my situation, I’ve known this girl over the course of months and she knows who I am by now. She knows my reputation. It’s socially acceptable for her to have sex with me. Again, just a stupid rationalization but in this case, in my favor.
THE FUCKING END.
The post Complete Guide On How To Lay Any Ugandan Campus Babe appeared first on Campus Eye.
Here’s a general attitude shift that will help average guys get laid at campus and reach that top 20% of the social pyramid. Forget everything RP has taught you about SMV. Social value is everything, it trumps looks, money, and even your cold approach skills at campus. Social value is not social skills per se, but consistent application of social skills IN THE RIGHT SETTINGS is what over time will ramp up your social value.
Campus is about social game – it is a massive pyramid and you will likely never be at the top given what you’ve told me, but you must be within the top 20%. Obviously you need to pack on some muscle and go hard in your classes, but for getting girls, you need to establish yourself socially.
When in doubt, think what do extroverts do? Join groups. IDC if its a frat or a jazz ensemble or theatre, you need to be involved in some social activity on 75% of days. First semester, join 5 groups filled with cool guys and women. Salsa, some art/musical shit, a sporty thing (I did intramural crew, it does not have to be some varsity d1 football shit for it to matter), a frat if you can, and an outdoorsy thing. Each place is a venue – you should be hitting up 1-2 of these social gatherings every night.
When you are there, you will be the bridge between groups. The extrovert. You will meet people, they will like you because you are outgoing, fun, non-judgmental, and most importantly, YOU KNOW OTHER PEOPLE. Everyone is looking to meet and connect and link up with other cool kids. What successful campus kids do is they establish themselves in 2-3 groups and introduce the cool guys and all girls within the groups to each other. They are the common factor, the LCD, so to everyone they have social value.
Bust your ass to find out where the cool parties are and be the guy who others know if they roll with, they will get in. Never be used for this – always ask for something in return in a fun way. For example if I’m bringing 2-3 theater guys to my crew teams party, I’ll tell them I want to see their scene to compare. (And holy shit, theater parties after a show are fucking insane my god, be an attractive straight guy and profit). You then meet people in their scene (the girls) and you can tease them a little with some “hey, you all should go a party with some guys who like girls, my frat / team / activity has a mixer…” shit.
Now you have eclipsed the original guys – whereas those first 2-3 theater bros had “bridge” value to me and I needed to go through them to access their women, now I can circumvent them (or not, if they are cool, keep them close).
After social establishment, then comes the pussy. There’s two types of game to run – party game and social game. Party game is you find a girl on the dance floor of some frat, you grind with her, you only neg if she’s clearly high value herself (don’t neg nervous freshmen dear god). Escalate physically, bring her back to your room to show her X (at my school no frats could serve booze after 2am, so at 2am my friend with an apartment would have a few guys + like 10 girls over for some shitty cocktails. That is partygame – go out, talk to a girl, move her to the dancefloor, escalate, move her away from her friends so they don’t see her going home with you and slut shame later, then come up with a way to get her out of the party before the party dies.
Party game nets you ONS and often burns contacts. Social game offsets this (inflow versus outflow) and allows you to have many more opportunities to run your party game. When you want a LTR / steady plate, it’s social game that’s likely to provide that.
So what do you do in that case? If it’s a girl you are in class with, you need to find a way to show your social value. Chat them towards the end of the week, ask them about their plans on friday and decline to tell them yours (make them ask). “We’re chilling at my place then heading out to X cool place. Wait a second. You said you were just going to be doing (whatever she said she was doing), ditch that and come along, it’s going to be crazy.”
This can be after class or if you just bump into the girl randomly. This only works, however, if you are a BRIDGE and she can instantly tell that worst case scenario, she will gain social value out of going with you.
Who in the frat scene gets laid the most? The average bro? No, absolutely wrong, the bridge. The one who knew the various girls from their social game they run on a 24/7 basis and thus could invite these different groups. The bridge guy doesn’t even have to be in the frat – at my school there was this short Jewish guy who was cool as shit and always brought girls. He’d bring 2 to a fucking BBQ on the lawn, he was always welcome but didn’t want to join for various reasons. We wanted him to continue this – he provided social value – so we’d always talk him up and put him in front of girls.
Yes, it is kinda stupid. Yes, you are probably an introvert or identify at least as a non-extrovert, but that must change. Lone wolf game is SHIT for college, idgaf what anecdote you have. College game is about understanding the ways to hack your way to the top of the pyramid through strings of successful social interactions (some guys naturally may be there because of they are athletes or whatever, but that’s not you).
“Don’t be boring.” is the female way of saying “don’t be low social value, offer me fun with cool people and social advancement, I’ll fuck your brains out.” Take girls off the pedestal; they do not want intellectual stimulation. Most of them are bored as shit in their expensive courses and are trying to get shit faced on the weekends, they are not wanting you to stimulate their minds. They want fun. Provide fun, thwack yourself on the head when you provide them with intellectual stimulation.
Most of you here are “smart guys.” Be a dumb guy – dumb, loud extrovert game will keep your efforts to be a bridge from seeming like beta tryhard networking.
Don’t try to avoid the nature of college with some “I’ll just play LoL in my dorm and then sneak out on friday to a party, bang some girl, and sneak back to write a FR.” This can work in theory, but it’s wayyy more effort and low % of success in the long run than actually constructing an ecosystem that generates pussy for you.
Good luck campus bros, use rubbers, don’t fuck drunk girls, it’s not worth it, protect your reputation, and build several interlocking venn diagram inner circles with you at the center.
Edit: Few people are asking for further reading. There is no book on this that I know of. Here is what has shaped my ideology on college game:
Art of Seduction – Robert Greene. In campus, I assume everyone is wanting something from me and everyone has something to offer me. Everyone is just basically trying to get value, everyone has a different angle. This book is key because it shows you many different options – in an English class, you can seduce my honestly just giving a girl a compliment, telling her that she had a good comment, and you want her to help you out studying. This feeds into her ego and lets her think of herself as cool / a mentor / etc, meaning she now needs you to keep studying with her to sustain that. Don’t be a one-trick hack, be a chameleon.
How to Win Friends and Influence People – overall great read. Of course, you should be willing to go outside of Dave Carnegie’s “positivity” frame and use some dirty tactics if you have to. But excellent book on how to conduct yourself in SGA (student govt), clubs, leadership positions, and so on. Not “game” per se, but it is important to conduct yourself as a confident, respectable adult who articulates positively – this will help you stand out and turn group projects into lays.
48 Laws – If you are a moralfag, read this book. Quit being up your own ass about morals and whatnot, campus is sociopaths in a fishbowl bumping heads. All the men want power and social value, all the women want validation and fun from these guys (and booze). This turns otherwise good people into value-leeches with no morals. Read 48 Laws.
Never Eat Alone – Are you an introvert? Read this book. Kinda “soft” or mainstream, but it’s solid. Great networking book.
The Likeability Factor – Great book on the subject of networking and friends and “winning the people”. Read this book if people don’t like you, it’s that simple.
Arnold’s BodyBuilding Bible – Aside from the fact that it’s Arnold, this book is a great wealth of knowledge on building muscle. The BEST way to bond with guys other than scoring pussy with them and drinking is hitting the gym together. If you read this book, you can take guys under your wing and give them pointers, help them out with their program, and become a leader in that regard. This book is huge and it will teach you more than r/fitness ever can. Go lifting with your friends, beast out, and when they ask or compliment you, you can offer some advice. (Not unsolicited). Help your skinny friends put on muscle and they will start becoming cool too, meeting more women, and making more contacts. It’s not a stretch, I’ve seen this first hand – you literally improve the women in your social circle by lifting with your bros (and offering them good ideas rather than the retarded plan they would have done without you).
After work, is what determines your future! Spend one hour per day doing these 5 things and your life will change forever!
You finish work at 6 pm, go to bed at 12 midnight.
Within these six hours, how do you spend them?
In fact, the activities you do between 6 am and 12 midnight,
the importance of it is beyond your imagination.
Too many people believe that,
your career is determined by the 8 hours of hard work and effort you put at work,
and your future and career progression depend on the boss and the company.
But the reality is that for most people, this thing, you are on your own…..
“Cultivation”, it’s forever dependent by yourself.
If you found yourself not progressing in life,
you cannot blame and put the responsibility on your company for not grooming you.
1. What you do every night is important
My major in college was marketing, but I expect to become a designer.
So I practiced day and night,
picking up some freelance work to improve my design skills.
It took me a long time.
When I became a boss, I no longer need to involve myself in design work,
So I went back to the Marketing field.
Every day, when my children are sleeping,
I began learning to gain more knowledge, this again took me a long time,
But I begin to realise my returns.
If I rely on my working hours to gain skills,
then I will never have become a creative director and a product manager,
or like today, teaching MBA students on Marketing.
What I rely on, is myself giving myself “lessons”.
And the most successful people I knew, walked the same path as I am.
I have a friend who is a History graduate,
but he is interested in technical sales,
In the day, he does telemarketing, at night he learns how to code,
Finally, he became the vice president of sales in a startup company.
Now, he’s a CTO.
I have another friend, he received a degree in political science.
But he’s very interested in entrepreneurship.
he learnt a lot of knowledge on how to start up a company,
eventually, he founded a company and sold it,
Now he has reaped the rewards.
For them, what they do between 6 pm till 12 midnight,
is what determined their future.
Clearly, we need to balance life and work.
If you have a wife and children, every night, you have to stay with them.
Even if you are single, you also need a reasonable allocation of time to go to the gym, to meet with friends, or be alone to meditate and so on.
Of course, watching movies, playing games is good.
But there are things you do not need to do.
For example, watching the new season of a Netflix drama,
14 hours per week watching television (This is the average amount of time watching television).
The time spent playing the game Candy Crush.
Or spending time stalking your high school alumni on Facebook,
it does not seem to be good.
So what should you do?
2. Read more, anything will do!
My college mentor was born in Alabama,
A poor African family.
He was admitted to West Point Military Academy, and he became the first person in the family to go college.
Before going to Havard for his MBA, he’s a trained officer.
When I met him, he has already developed his career in the city of Colorado Springs.
I asked him, what’s his biggest success?
He replied, because he kept the habit of reading,
and he never stopped.
He believed that if you want to get what you want in life,
knowledge is the key.
He often asked his interviewees what book are they reading now,
the excellent ones can give an answer immediately.
Reading can give you a good headstart,
this is often what your peers cannot obtain.
Compared to others,
you are more likely to know other industries strategies and tactics,
and that may be helpful to your company.
You can transfer your knowledge within the organization,
create new possibilities for your company.
Moreover, your conversation topics will become more interesting.
Anthony Robbins said:
“If you spend one hour a day to learn about a topic,
a year later, in this regard,
the knowledge you gain will be more than 99.999% of the world’s people.”
Even if you have 30 minutes every night,
each week you can easily read a book.
You may not be an expert, but I promise,
you’ll know more than what your peers know.
3. Do some projects
You can apply the knowledge learnt to real work scenario,
this is only an ideal state.
If your company did not give you this opportunity,
create opportunities for yourself.
You can do some volunteer projects. They can bring you fame.
Working with a team,
you’ll understand how things work.
In the practical application of the industry,
and how it ultimately affect actual customers.
You’ll learn how to perform the task and meet deadlines,
and get feedbacks on what you are doing,
and benefit from it.
When you are not strong enough, these experience may not have any value to you.
But you are still a novice.
these experiences are far more valuable than the miserable pay you are getting.
If you can really convince others of your pockets of fruits of labour,
Then go try it. But do not let these private jobs affect your work.
4. Actively build your connections
In your career path,
a strong network of connections will make everything accelerate.
If you have not set up your own personal connections,
you’ll need to divide a portion of your time to do this.
A strong network of relationships, can enable you:
- contact smart friends, and learn their opinions
- get information and knowledge that are difficult to obtain
- help the company look for more potential partners
- or income generating opportunities
Go get to know your work colleague or boss…..
If you are an entrepreneur,
your network connections will be your early customers,
your staffs are a source of capital
rather than go home, or going to a bar,
you should find some inner circles.
There are many small groups which are highly relevant to your career.
You should try to integrate into these circles.
Every week, you can drink coffee together with new friends,
go drinking or have breakfast.
You can also look into everyone’s career developments on LinkedIn.
And establish a network with mentors in those professional industries.
They may be your next job employer, who knows?
Your connections will be your most powerful asset in the workplace.
Since you have time to watch “The Voice of China”,
you have time to build a social network.
5. The CHANGE of your LIFE starts TONIGHT
6 pm to 12 am, you go home, though physically and mentally tired,
you are free to do anything and do not have to take orders from others.
During this time,
you can switch off like switching off your computer at your workplace, switch off your brain.
But you can also do something,
make you smarter, stronger, have a wider network of people.
From the start tonight, take an hour a day to do these things,
I guarantee that after a year,
your career, and life will change.
Organising a campus event is one of the hardest thing to do for a University student in Uganda. During the course of our existence, we’ve received hundreds of requests asking for a guide on organising these events. In the same period, we’ve had a chance to participate in organising some of the most successful events, we’ve also had a chance of observing events that went terribly bad. We are now finally releasing that complete guide to event organisation and management in Ugandan universities.
- Start Early by forming a working core committee that understands that real requirements of this Event or Fest. We always advise that you start planning 9 to 10 months in advance. It is funny how event organisers wake up a week before and think they can pull off a great event. Have a structured plan of how you will carry out every crucial step, avoid having a hurried plan.
The working core committee should be a well organised team broken into different departments each assigned different roles. Some of the questions you ought to answer include;
-Why are you having this campus event?
-What will the event be about?
-What is the aim and theme?
-How will the event be run?
-Who will pay for this and for how much?
-Who will benefit and how?
-When is it to be held?
2. Get organised by preparing a timeline. In the timeline, it is important that you schedule the different activities, the responsible people and the due dates. You should make use of a Gantt chart at this step. Create 5 different teams;
All these teams should be coordinated via a WhatsApp group. However, they too should each have their own individual WhatsApp groups. It is also important that you manage all stakeholders and get necessary permissions in advance.
3. Event Management
Here you will attempt to answer the question of how the event should be. It is also important that you get clear on what type of event you are organising. If you are inviting some artistes or celebrities book them early enough. Celebrities always expect huge crowds and quality arrangements. Important that your event doesn’t fall during the exam period as it will lack people attending it.
4. Prepare your teams
Break down everything into different activities and actions. Assign a responsible team, and responsible person plus a due date. Constantly meet to review actions that are due and dates upon which to recover. At this stage you should also get serious about the finance and budget department. What will be the event’s incomes and expenditures? Income sources can include earned income (ticket sales, merchandising) and unearned income (sponsorships and university funds).
Your expenditure will include things such as equipment hires, stage setups and musician bookings. Draw up a contingency and incident management plan. What if for example it rains? What if artiste A doesn’t turn up? What if electrical equipment fails? What if there is a fire?
5. Preparing the budget
You should by now know the different between budget, finance and accounting. You can use Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheet to draw up your budget. It is basically about your incomes on one hand and the expenditures on another. Your budget must be realistic and must aim at reducing costs as much as possible. The finance and management team will estimate all event requirements, determine money composition, carry out allotment of money, manage the cash and take care of bank accounts. It should have good book keeping and ensure efficient and effective management of the money. Sponsors will most likely give cheques so always have a bank account.
Lots of people always ask us about getting sponsors for their events. This is not difficult as long as you are professional. First of all make a list of all potential sponsors, these could include alcohol companies or other companies with products targeting campusers. Get their contact details and cold call them. Often times, they will ask you to send them an email proposal and finally ask you to make a sponsorship presentation.
Your proposal should offer extreme value proposition. It should have a brief background to the event. How many years of existence is the event? Who is organising it? Number of attendees for previous years? What is the profile of the attendees? What are they like? Do the event attendees fit the market profile for the potential sponsor? There should be close match between the attendee profiles and target clients of the sponsor.
Of course the sponsor wants benefit out. So talk about what you are offering. Good locations for their banners, sales for their products or services, mentions during the event, number of estimated attendees.
In case you are asked to meet with the sponsor to make a presentation, try to keep your presentation short, no longer than 10 or 15 minutes. It should offer the right impact in short period. Avoid making the same presentation to every company. We recommend you use Powerpoint, Prezzi or Powtoon for your presentation. Prezzi and Powtoon are online exciting presentation makers.
Sometimes a sponsor may not offer a cash sponsorship, in which case it is also important for you to know the following. What does your event need? Who has it? What do they need in return. For example, your event will need publicity, so you can have NTV Uganda as a sponsor giving you free advert space. Or you can have Silk Events sponsoring you with music equipment.
Once you you have the sponsorship deal signed, be sure to have answers to these;
-What the company is expecting during and after the fest?
-When will the sponsorship cheque be handed over?
-Are their event naming rights to the deal?
-Location of the company banners and teardrops at the event
-Name and contact details for the sponsor’s ‘minder’
Many events tend to fail on publicity, mostly because they don’t approach it in a professional way. The Publicity team should have the following sub-teams;
-Creative and Graphic Design Team for the artworks
-Website and Social Media Handling team (digital marketing team)
-Off-campus publicity team
-On-campus publicity team
Your publicity will fall under two phases. The first phase is the initial publicity. Here you may create the blog or website and social media pages with a video teaser. Choose one official hashtag for all online communications Then you will have the major publicity involving the designing of banners and fliers plus roadshows. Think about the following;
-who can do graphic designs for posters and banners?
-The different ways to reach the campus students you need for the event
-Will local printer give discounts if you make bulk orders?
-Word of mouth is important at campus. Get people who will talk to others face to face and encourage them to come for the event
This is the last important section in organising a campus event. Hospitality includes things such as toilets, accomodation, transport, water, waste management, noise control measures, security measures at the event, crowd control during events, necessary permissions and authorisations.
Organising a campus event will teach you much more than you will ever learn in your entire time at campus. It will teach you soft skills, it will help you learn things such as networking and enable you to come out of your comfort zone. And if you do it well, you will earn some good money.

Last year, www.campuseye.ug appointed me to take position as its next Managing Editor. It was a rare privilege considering the good fight that feminists in Uganda have put up over the years, with more losses than wins. It was thus surprising that the weeks that followed, invites after invites begun pouring through of people who now asked me to belong to their groups; “the special ones.” At first I got excited, I started attending some of these events, only to start realising that something was amiss, it was as though the same faces had conspired to belong to the same groups, and had all the privileges.
These same faces seemed to have self-appointed themselves as the mouthpieces of Ugandan millennials, the outstanding millennials both in thought and achievement. Their conversations were a bit different, their hang-out spots too, different. And to make it even more interesting, they loved Twitter more than Facebook. They spoke about the highs and lows in Uganda’s offices that matter, they seemed to know all these names off head. To a new-comer, they are ‘impressive.’ But it doesn’t take long for one to see through this illusion of the ‘young intellectual Ugandans yet idiots’ and their growing ‘millennial elitism.’
According to Wikipedia definition; “Elitism is the belief or attitude that individuals who form an elite—a select group of people with a certain ancestry, intrinsic quality or worth, high intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes—are those whose influence or authority is greater than that of others; whose views on a matter are to be taken more seriously or carry more weight; whose views or actions are more likely to be constructive to society as a whole; or whose extraordinary skills, abilities, or wisdom render them especially fit to govern…’Elitism’ also refers to situations in which an individual assumes special ‘privileges’ and responsibilities in the hope that this arrangement will benefit humanity or themselves. Elitism is closely related to social class and what sociologists call social stratification. Members of the upper classes are sometimes known as the social elite. The term elitism is also sometimes used to denote situations in which a group of people claiming to possess high abilities or simply an in-group or cadre grant themselves extra privileges at the expense of others. This form of elitism may be described as discrimination.”
The problem in today’s Uganda is that the millennials have formed their elitism clubs. I do not want to mention names but overtime, I have turned down invites from Think-Tanks in the making in this country to save myself from the punishment of throwing up in the presence of these groups as they discuss ideals.
Despite being one of the first female Managing Editors of a fast-growing digital media group, I have no desire of practicing this millennial elitism. I have no desire of having the same models as these millennial elites. I have no desire of cutting myself out of larger society, according myself all the coming benefits of various donor funds while putting down a large section of young Ugandans. That I will not do, I will not contribute to the growth of this millennial elitism, the kind that fights its battles on Twitter but has not made any worthy contribution worth its name to its society.

If you thought Jim Crow only lived in the United States of America, then you are about to be shocked. On Friday evening, Charlene Onyango-Obbo together with her cousins made their way to famous Bugolobi hang-out; GattoMatto.
As minutes passed by, the Obbos complained that service was delaying. They had ordered for drinks before the white clients but the white clients got served faster. When they tried to air their concerns to the manager on duty, he broke the sad news to them.
“Sweet ladies, we have to take care of these white people. They are priority. But we are also working on you,”he noted.
An angered Charlene took to her Facebook page to place a complaint. Surprisingly, Lindsey Kukunda was one of the first to make a comment.
Charlene is the youngest daughter of famous Ugandan journalist, Charles Onyango-Obbo.

Albert Asingya Mumbere, one of Kasese’s best pupils in the recently released Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) results has told journalists that he aspires to be a royal guard. Mumbere sat his PLE at one of Kasese’s top performing schools, Margherita Primary School and scored 6 aggregates.
Asked on his future aspirations, Mumbere says he wants to study hard and become a royal guard. “I hope to go to St. Marys’s College Kisubi and become a royal guard,” he notes. In the PLE results of 2016, boys outperformed girls while districts from the Busoga region continued to lag behind.
Speaking at the results ceremony, First lady and Minister of Education, Janet Kataaha Museveni encouraged parents to take more responsibility for their children’s education.

It’s good to be home. My fellow Americans, Michelle and I have been so touched by all the well-wishes we’ve received over the past few weeks. But tonight it’s my turn to say thanks. Whether we’ve seen eye-to-eye or rarely agreed at all, my conversations with you, the American people – in living rooms and schools; at farms and on factory floors; at diners and on distant outposts – are what have kept me honest, kept me inspired, and kept me going. Every day, I learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.
I first came to Chicago when I was in my early twenties, still trying to figure out who I was; still searching for a purpose to my life. It was in neighborhoods not far from here where I began working with church groups in the shadows of closed steel mills. It was on these streets where I witnessed the power of faith, and the quiet dignity of working people in the face of struggle and loss. This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it.
After eight years as your President, I still believe that. And it’s not just my belief. It’s the beating heart of our American idea – our bold experiment in self-government.
It’s the conviction that we are all created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It’s the insistence that these rights, while self-evident, have never been self-executing; that We, the People, through the instrument of our democracy, can form a more perfect union.
This is the great gift our Founders gave us. The freedom to chase our individual dreams through our sweat, toil, and imagination – and the imperative to strive together as well, to achieve a greater good.
For 240 years, our nation’s call to citizenship has given work and purpose to each new generation. It’s what led patriots to choose republic over tyranny, pioneers to trek west, slaves to brave that makeshift railroad to freedom. It’s what pulled immigrants and refugees across oceans and the Rio Grande, pushed women to reach for the ballot, powered workers to organize. It’s why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well.
So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional. Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change, and make life better for those who follow.
Yes, our progress has been uneven. The work of democracy has always been hard, contentious and sometimes bloody. For every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back. But the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion, a constant widening of our founding creed to embrace all, and not just some.
If I had told you eight years ago that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history…if I had told you that we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban people, shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program without firing a shot, and take out the mastermind of 9/11…if I had told you that we would win marriage equality, and secure the right to health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens – you might have said our sights were set a little too high.
But that’s what we did. That’s what you did. You were the change. You answered people’s hopes, and because of you, by almost every measure, America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started.
In ten days, the world will witness a hallmark of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power from one freely-elected president to the next. I committed to President-Elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me. Because it’s up to all of us to make sure our government can help us meet the many challenges we still face.
We have what we need to do so. After all, we remain the wealthiest, most powerful, and most respected nation on Earth. Our youth and drive, our diversity and openness, our boundless capacity for risk and reinvention mean that the future should be ours.
But that potential will be realized only if our democracy works. Only if our politics reflects the decency of the our people. Only if all of us, regardless of our party affiliation or particular interest, help restore the sense of common purpose that we so badly need right now.
That’s what I want to focus on tonight – the state of our democracy.
Understand, democracy does not require uniformity. Our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity – the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.
There have been moments throughout our history that threatened to rupture that solidarity. The beginning of this century has been one of those times. A shrinking world, growing inequality; demographic change and the specter of terrorism – these forces haven’t just tested our security and prosperity, but our democracy as well. And how we meet these challenges to our democracy will determine our ability to educate our kids, and create good jobs, and protect our homeland.
In other words, it will determine our future.
Our democracy won’t work without a sense that everyone has economic opportunity. Today, the economy is growing again; wages, incomes, home values, and retirement accounts are rising again; poverty is falling again. The wealthy are paying a fairer share of taxes even as the stock market shatters records. The unemployment rate is near a ten-year low. The uninsured rate has never, ever been lower. Health care costs are rising at the slowest rate in fifty years. And if anyone can put together a plan that is demonstrably better than the improvements we’ve made to our health care system – that covers as many people at less cost – I will publicly support it.
That, after all, is why we serve – to make people’s lives better, not worse.
But for all the real progress we’ve made, we know it’s not enough. Our economy doesn’t work as well or grow as fast when a few prosper at the expense of a growing middle class. But stark inequality is also corrosive to our democratic principles. While the top one percent has amassed a bigger share of wealth and income, too many families, in inner cities and rural counties, have been left behind – the laid-off factory worker; the waitress and health care worker who struggle to pay the bills – convinced that the game is fixed against them, that their government only serves the interests of the powerful – a recipe for more cynicism and polarization in our politics.
There are no quick fixes to this long-term trend. I agree that our trade should be fair and not just free. But the next wave of economic dislocation won’t come from overseas. It will come from the relentless pace of automation that makes many good, middle-class jobs obsolete.
And so we must forge a new social compact – to guarantee all our kids the education they need; to give workers the power to unionize for better wages; to update the social safety net to reflect the way we live now and make more reforms to the tax code so corporations and individuals who reap the most from the new economy don’t avoid their obligations to the country that’s made their success possible. We can argue about how to best achieve these goals. But we can’t be complacent about the goals themselves. For if we don’t create opportunity for all people, the disaffection and division that has stalled our progress will only sharpen in years to come.
There’s a second threat to our democracy – one as old as our nation itself. After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America. Such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic. For race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society. I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were ten, or twenty, or thirty years ago – you can see it not just in statistics, but in the attitudes of young Americans across the political spectrum.
But we’re not where we need to be. All of us have more work to do. After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves. If we decline to invest in the children of immigrants, just because they don’t look like us, we diminish the prospects of our own children – because those brown kids will represent a larger share of America’s workforce. And our economy doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game. Last year, incomes rose for all races, all age groups, for men and for women.
Going forward, we must uphold laws against discrimination – in hiring, in housing, in education and the criminal justice system. That’s what our Constitution and highest ideals require. But laws alone won’t be enough. Hearts must change. If our democracy is to work in this increasingly diverse nation, each one of us must try to heed the advice of one of the great characters in American fiction, Atticus Finch, who said “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
For blacks and other minorities, it means tying our own struggles for justice to the challenges that a lot of people in this country face – the refugee, the immigrant, the rural poor, the transgender American, and also the middle-aged white man who from the outside may seem like he’s got all the advantages, but who’s seen his world upended by economic, cultural, and technological change.
For white Americans, it means acknowledging that the effects of slavery and Jim Crow didn’t suddenly vanish in the ‘60s; that when minority groups voice discontent, they’re not just engaging in reverse racism or practicing political correctness; that when they wage peaceful protest, they’re not demanding special treatment, but the equal treatment our Founders promised.
For native-born Americans, it means reminding ourselves that the stereotypes about immigrants today were said, almost word for word, about the Irish, Italians, and Poles. America wasn’t weakened by the presence of these newcomers; they embraced this nation’s creed, and it was strengthened.
So regardless of the station we occupy; we have to try harder; to start with the premise that each of our fellow citizens loves this country just as much as we do; that they value hard work and family like we do; that their children are just as curious and hopeful and worthy of love as our own.
None of this is easy. For too many of us, it’s become safer to retreat into our own bubbles, whether in our neighborhoods or college campuses or places of worship or our social media feeds, surrounded by people who look like us and share the same political outlook and never challenge our assumptions. The rise of naked partisanship, increasing economic and regional stratification, the splintering of our media into a channel for every taste – all this makes this great sorting seem natural, even inevitable. And increasingly, we become so secure in our bubbles that we accept only information, whether true or not, that fits our opinions, instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that’s out there.
This trend represents a third threat to our democracy. Politics is a battle of ideas; in the course of a healthy debate, we’ll prioritize different goals, and the different means of reaching them. But without some common baseline of facts; without a willingness to admit new information, and concede that your opponent is making a fair point, and that science and reason matter, we’ll keep talking past each other, making common ground and compromise impossible.
Isn’t that part of what makes politics so dispiriting? How can elected officials rage about deficits when we propose to spend money on preschool for kids, but not when we’re cutting taxes for corporations? How do we excuse ethical lapses in our own party, but pounce when the other party does the same thing? It’s not just dishonest, this selective sorting of the facts; it’s self-defeating. Because as my mother used to tell me, reality has a way of catching up with you.
Take the challenge of climate change. In just eight years, we’ve halved our dependence on foreign oil, doubled our renewable energy, and led the world to an agreement that has the promise to save this planet. But without bolder action, our children won’t have time to debate the existence of climate change; they’ll be busy dealing with its effects: environmental disasters, economic disruptions, and waves of climate refugees seeking sanctuary.
Now, we can and should argue about the best approach to the problem. But to simply deny the problem not only betrays future generations; it betrays the essential spirit of innovation and practical problem-solving that guided our Founders.
It’s that spirit, born of the Enlightenment, that made us an economic powerhouse – the spirit that took flight at Kitty Hawk and Cape Canaveral; the spirit that that cures disease and put a computer in every pocket.
It’s that spirit – a faith in reason, and enterprise, and the primacy of right over might, that allowed us to resist the lure of fascism and tyranny during the Great Depression, and build a post-World War II order with other democracies, an order based not just on military power or national affiliations but on principles – the rule of law, human rights, freedoms of religion, speech, assembly, and an independent press.
That order is now being challenged – first by violent fanatics who claim to speak for Islam; more recently by autocrats in foreign capitals who see free markets, open democracies, and civil society itself as a threat to their power. The peril each poses to our democracy is more far-reaching than a car bomb or a missile. It represents the fear of change; the fear of people who look or speak or pray differently; a contempt for the rule of law that holds leaders accountable; an intolerance of dissent and free thought; a belief that the sword or the gun or the bomb or propaganda machine is the ultimate arbiter of what’s true and what’s right.
Because of the extraordinary courage of our men and women in uniform, and the intelligence officers, law enforcement, and diplomats who support them, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland these past eight years; and although Boston and Orlando remind us of how dangerous radicalization can be, our law enforcement agencies are more effective and vigilant than ever. We’ve taken out tens of thousands of terrorists – including Osama bin Laden. The global coalition we’re leading against ISIL has taken out their leaders, and taken away about half their territory. ISIL will be destroyed, and no one who threatens America will ever be safe. To all who serve, it has been the honor of my lifetime to be your Commander-in-Chief.
But protecting our way of life requires more than our military. Democracy can buckle when we give in to fear. So just as we, as citizens, must remain vigilant against external aggression, we must guard against a weakening of the values that make us who we are. That’s why, for the past eight years, I’ve worked to put the fight against terrorism on a firm legal footing. That’s why we’ve ended torture, worked to close Gitmo, and reform our laws governing surveillance to protect privacy and civil liberties. That’s why I reject discrimination against Muslim Americans who are just as patriotic as we are. That’s why we cannot withdraw from global fights – to expand democracy, and human rights, women’s rights, and LGBT rights – no matter how imperfect our efforts, no matter how expedient ignoring such values may seem. For the fight against extremism and intolerance and sectarianism are of a piece with the fight against authoritarianism and nationalist aggression. If the scope of freedom and respect for the rule of law shrinks around the world, the likelihood of war within and between nations increases, and our own freedoms will eventually be threatened.
So let’s be vigilant, but not afraid. ISIL will try to kill innocent people. But they cannot defeat America unless we betray our Constitution and our principles in the fight. Rivals like Russia or China cannot match our influence around the world – unless we give up what we stand for, and turn ourselves into just another big country that bullies smaller neighbors.
Which brings me to my final point – our democracy is threatened whenever we take it for granted. All of us, regardless of party, should throw ourselves into the task of rebuilding our democratic institutions. When voting rates are some of the lowest among advanced democracies, we should make it easier, not harder, to vote. When trust in our institutions is low, we should reduce the corrosive influence of money in our politics, and insist on the principles of transparency and ethics in public service. When Congress is dysfunctional, we should draw our districts to encourage politicians to cater to common sense and not rigid extremes.
And all of this depends on our participation; on each of us accepting the responsibility of citizenship, regardless of which way the pendulum of power swings.
Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift. But it’s really just a piece of parchment. It has no power on its own. We, the people, give it power – with our participation, and the choices we make. Whether or not we stand up for our freedoms. Whether or not we respect and enforce the rule of law. America is no fragile thing. But the gains of our long journey to freedom are not assured.
In his own farewell address, George Washington wrote that self-government is the underpinning of our safety, prosperity, and liberty, but “from different causes and from different quarters much pains will be taken…to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth;” that we should preserve it with “jealous anxiety;” that we should reject “the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest or to enfeeble the sacred ties” that make us one.
We weaken those ties when we allow our political dialogue to become so corrosive that people of good character are turned off from public service; so coarse with rancor that Americans with whom we disagree are not just misguided, but somehow malevolent. We weaken those ties when we define some of us as more American than others; when we write off the whole system as inevitably corrupt, and blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them.
It falls to each of us to be those anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy; to embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours. Because for all our outward differences, we all share the same proud title: Citizen.
Ultimately, that’s what our democracy demands. It needs you. Not just when there’s an election, not just when your own narrow interest is at stake, but over the full span of a lifetime. If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet, try to talk with one in real life. If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing. If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself. Show up. Dive in. Persevere. Sometimes you’ll win. Sometimes you’ll lose. Presuming a reservoir of goodness in others can be a risk, and there will be times when the process disappoints you. But for those of us fortunate enough to have been a part of this work, to see it up close, let me tell you, it can energize and inspire. And more often than not, your faith in America – and in Americans – will be confirmed.
Mine sure has been. Over the course of these eight years, I’ve seen the hopeful faces of young graduates and our newest military officers. I’ve mourned with grieving families searching for answers, and found grace in Charleston church. I’ve seen our scientists help a paralyzed man regain his sense of touch, and our wounded warriors walk again. I’ve seen our doctors and volunteers rebuild after earthquakes and stop pandemics in their tracks. I’ve seen the youngest of children remind us of our obligations to care for refugees, to work in peace, and above all to look out for each other.
That faith I placed all those years ago, not far from here, in the power of ordinary Americans to bring about change – that faith has been rewarded in ways I couldn’t possibly have imagined. I hope yours has, too. Some of you here tonight or watching at home were there with us in 2004, in 2008, in 2012 – and maybe you still can’t believe we pulled this whole thing off.
You’re not the only ones. Michelle – for the past twenty-five years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.
Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad.
To Joe Biden, the scrappy kid from Scranton who became Delaware’s favorite son: you were the first choice I made as a nominee, and the best. Not just because you have been a great Vice President, but because in the bargain, I gained a brother. We love you and Jill like family, and your friendship has been one of the great joys of our life.
To my remarkable staff: For eight years – and for some of you, a whole lot more – I’ve drawn from your energy, and tried to reflect back what you displayed every day: heart, and character, and idealism. I’ve watched you grow up, get married, have kids, and start incredible new journeys of your own. Even when times got tough and frustrating, you never let Washington get the better of you. The only thing that makes me prouder than all the good we’ve done is the thought of all the remarkable things you’ll achieve from here.
And to all of you out there – every organizer who moved to an unfamiliar town and kind family who welcomed them in, every volunteer who knocked on doors, every young person who cast a ballot for the first time, every American who lived and breathed the hard work of change – you are the best supporters and organizers anyone could hope for, and I will forever be grateful. Because yes, you changed the world.
That’s why I leave this stage tonight even more optimistic about this country than I was when we started. Because I know our work has not only helped so many Americans; it has inspired so many Americans – especially so many young people out there – to believe you can make a difference; to hitch your wagon to something bigger than yourselves. This generation coming up – unselfish, altruistic, creative, patriotic – I’ve seen you in every corner of the country. You believe in a fair, just, inclusive America; you know that constant change has been America’s hallmark, something not to fear but to embrace, and you are willing to carry this hard work of democracy forward. You’ll soon outnumber any of us, and I believe as a result that the future is in good hands.
My fellow Americans, it has been the honor of my life to serve you. I won’t stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my days that remain. For now, whether you’re young or young at heart, I do have one final ask of you as your President – the same thing I asked when you took a chance on me eight years ago.
I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change – but in yours.
I am asking you to hold fast to that faith written into our founding documents; that idea whispered by slaves and abolitionists; that spirit sung by immigrants and homesteaders and those who marched for justice; that creed reaffirmed by those who planted flags from foreign battlefields to the surface of the moon; a creed at the core of every American whose story is not yet written:
Yes We Can.
Yes We Did.
Yes We Can.
Thank you. God bless you. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.
The post Greatest Speech Ever? Obama’s Last Words As US President appeared first on Campus Eye.
Towards the end of last year, the office of the Rwandan President took a number of Ugandan journalists on a tour of Rwanda and also to offer coverage to the annual retreat aka Umushyikirano. Among the media entourage were journalists from NBS TV. The NBS TV crew consisted of 10 journalists and camera men some of whom included Joseph Sabiiti, Canary Mugume and the CEO himself, Kin Kariisa.
It was in Rwanda that Kin Kariisa made a proposal to the president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame about NBS TV’s expansion into Rwanda. But not only that, NBS TV Rwanda would operate in a special partnership that would complement the roles of the National Rwanda broadcaster, RTV.
It is believed that discussions are now in the pipeline to enable the smooth expansion of the station into one of Africa’s fastest growing economies.
However back home, the situation has not been as rosy as it is painted. Despite recruiting a number of journalists from rival NTV, the station has been grappling with a huge wage bill. In 2016, the maintenance of these big salaries proved very hard for the station whose revenues had not grown to match its capacity growth. Thus the expansion into Rwanda now remains the only option that will save a number of jobs at the station. “It is either we expand into Rwanda and transfer some staff there or we face the hard decisions of downsizing,”one of the NBS top managers revealed to us.
Meanwhile at NTV Uganda, the mergers between the TV, the Radio and the Newspaper has put many jobs at stake. One of those could be Aggie Konde’s job. Konde has been the most successful MD of NTV Uganda yet many doubt she would be entrusted to handle the new centralized operations of Nation Media Group in Uganda. Not only that, the corporate life of NTV staff has left many bankrupt. “Some of us are taking home just 100K a month. Most of our money is still servicing the car loans that we took on. We were forced to take these vehicle asset financing loans in a bid to keep up with the corporate image that NTV espouses but at a challenging cost,”a flamboyant TV Presenter tells us. Again what will be the future of NTV Uganda?
When we get to the Newspaper world, the stories are even scarier. Sales of Vision Group papers have been shrinking yet the opportunities promised by digital transitions have not matured as fast as earlier imagined. Kampala Sun has not posted any profit for more than a year. It has operated under losses and the company will sooner than later have to swallow its pride and close it. Bukedde the once super performing Newspaper has also suffered a massive reduction in sales. It all started with increments in the cost of the paper. There has been a certain law that any losses in newspaper sales are never recovered even though the price were to be returned to the original mark. Most of Bukedde’s readers are very price sensitive. Any slight increment will see them give up on buying that paper for a much cheaper one. Coupled with that are the unloyal habits of Ugandan newspaper readers. They will always shift bases should one take them for granted.
Still at Vision Group, Urban TV has failed to break even. X-FM on the other hand has taken out much more than it will ever bring in. At this moment, it is only the printery that is reliable. The Group has now gone beyond just being a media led organization to one that uses media to promote its other ventures. To keep in businesses, workers havs been laid off, and the company now deals more in events than anything.
The Red Pepper has been in a continuous struggle. To survive, they have had to accept and adopt plagiarism as their editorial policy. They will copy and paste anything that lools like news from social media or online sites. Some workers there have gone months without pay, very similar to the situation in Rwanda for a certain Ugandan Magazine there. Although the Red Pepper bosses have fattened, their employees now leave through fleecing where they threaten to release a story in exchange for money.
The Observer on the other hand went slow on its plans to become a daily choosing to keep at the tri-weekly level. Last year they lost over 18 computers, laptops and cameras in a robbery. They are yet to recover from that theft. Despite pleas from Standard Group Kenya, they are still hesitant to sell off. Time and again, negotiations between the two have fallen apart with most of the directors opposed to the sale of The Observer. Could they be scared of a repeat of what happened when NMG acquired The Monitor Newspaper? They also can’t go daily when they have no printer of their own.
And the media has had its anormalies such as the closure of WBS TV or rather the buy-out. There are stations like Top TV where employees have gotten used to working for no salary.
Does the online side promise a future? It seems many online media houses are yet to break even. They have not been as disruptive as many had thought. One still has to get a hard copy newspaper to get deep news analysis. The Independent Magazine has plans of launching its first online newsroom. Will this be disruptive? Many online media houses don’t have clear employee policies and agreements. Employees depending on how the owners wish. Many quit earlier than expected. Corporate organizations are yet to take the digital papers serious choosing to give them very little in advertisement revenues, taking years to process LPOs and some frauding them in the process.
All in all, the current state of the media in Uganda will need a certain shift in the way of doing things, perhaps invent new models and pray that they produce results lest they burn their fingers.

The festive season of 2016 was one of the trickiest for Winnie Byanyima, the Executive Director of Oxfam and wife to Kizza Besigye.
When she returned from the United States, she had chosen to keep a fairly low profile as regards the arrest of her nephew, Mathew Kanyamunyu. She has only momentarily spoken to the media and revealed her presidential ambitions.
But something within her was burning. It was as though she was boxed in a certain fence. According to one of the maids in the Besigye household, there would be moments when Byanyima would be lost in thoughts, something that kept worrying the husband.
Mathew Kanyamunyu grew up in the Byanyima household. He was raised as one of her own child. It is Kanyamunyu who used to reside in the Mbarara house and took care of its daily affairs.
Byanyima thus felt it was a huge betrayal to abandon her child when he needed him the most. At one time she had secretly gone to Luzira prison to pay him a visit. Prison guards were shocked to see the two break down in tears before a single word had been shared. Kanyamunyu had pleaded with his ‘mother’ to help save him from the pains of Luzira. Thereafter, a certain gentleman in the Besigye household was assigned the responsibility of delivering food to Kanyamunyu in prison and updating his aunt about his condition.
But it was on the weekend when all hell broke lose. Two little girls from the Kanyamunyu family paid Byanyima visit in Kasangati. These two girls happen to be Byanyima’s favourite nieces. As they played around in the well mowed gardens, one asked Byanyima about Mathew. She was lost for words.
“It was at this point in time that Byanyima decided enough was enough, she was willing to sacrifice political capital to be there for one of her own. Mathew has been losing weight drastically and his businesses are falling apart. She knew she had to help,” this maid in the household tells us.
Thus on Tuesday Byanyima had already won the mental fight. She picked up her blue kitenge, her dark shades and headed straight for court. It was one of the hardest decisions she had taken in life, the other having been when she left State house to make way for the current First Lady’s return from Sweden.
As you all know when they got to court, the rest is history. Byanyima’s appearance at court has divided camps, with some siding with her while others castigating her for the decision. It remains to be seen what the general public view of her decision will be in the longterm.

In June 2016, Uber launched in Uganda with a bang. It kickstarted its operations in the country with free rides that were given to an already excited citizenry. Car owners in Uganda saw it as another way to make some side cash by signing up as Uber Drivers. But this was just the beginning.
Soon afterwards, another ride-sharing app launched in Uganda. It was none other than Taxify, an Estonian based start-up. Taxify rode on one model; “treat the drivers better.” It was a model premised from the fact that Uber’s disruptive models had caused disgruntlement among cab drivers in Africa especially in countries like South Africa and Kenya.
Afro a Nigerian-based ride sharing App has hinted on launching in Kenya and Uganda this year. Unlike other ride-sharing apps, Afro allows customers to haggle, something that is very fit for the African context. The haggling all occurs online as the driver and user keep raising and lowering prices until an agreement is reached by either party confirming a final price.
Then we have the mighty Friendship Taxi that charges by a mile, possibly beating Uber’s ever changing prices. Friendship Taxi has former Kampala Mayor, Nasser Ntege Ssebagala as a major partner. “I basically wanted to build a platform that was a win-win for both sides. What makes Friendship Taxi special is that even those without jobs can come for one of our cabs either as employees or hire them.”
Even before that steam settles, Safaricom in partnership with MTN Uganda will be launching its own ride-hailing service in Uganda. Whereas in Kenya it offers an M-Pesa payment option, in Uganda it will be a MTN Mobile Money. On top of this will be free wifi in the cabs. Internet is one of the things that appeals to the average millennial in the country.
Uganda is also already muzzling out with Fone Taxi, another ride-hailing platform. What makes their model different is the fact that they are offering a variety of cabs to choose from and this also determines the price. One can choose to travel in a Mercedes Benz or even in a Vitz, the prices differ. In addition, they have boda-bodas aka motorbikes for their Ugandan market. What makes Fone Taxi special, they write; “other apps look at the condition of the car, we place emphasis on the condition of the driver.” Whatever that means, only user experience can clarify.
As soon as we ushered in the New Year, another mobile app named “Quick Taxi” announced its presence in the country. Among other things has been its promise to drivers of an ability to make up to Shs. 600,000 per week. Pretty outrageous but a great bait.
This then begs the question; “Who will win the Ride-Hailing platform war in Uganda?” Global Internet Start-ups have expanded to Africa based on the premise that there is an already established middle class that is expanding by the day. However, many soon awaken to the realities that this is always a fallacy. Jumia is one of those platforms that can lay testimony.
None of the ride-hailing apps in Africa is yet to record profit let alone break even. Customer Retention has also proven difficult for these platforms as most users consider it a one-off affair. You can’t be certain when next someone will order for a cab. Many have tried it once and never returned, some found it too expensive. In Uganda, it has been difficult to break out Bodabodas and their awesome user experience. Such challenges have seen Uber diversify and start thinking of business partnerships, these include food deliveries. In the Festive season, they were to partner with Uganda Breweries to roll out a responsible drinking campaign code named “You Drink We Drive.”
Safety has been an issue for both parties. Uber drivers have expressed concerns, with some having cars stolen from them. Another story made news of a Uber driver who almost hacked a Ugandan user to death. She was lucky to live to tell her story.
These apps will also have to accept that Internet penetration is still a challenge. In Uganda, outside Kampala, few Ugandans are aware of these apps and it is rare for someone to use them outside the central business district. Even in Kampala, the internet charges remain high making it impossible for one to keep up with such platforms. It could take over 5 years or more before ride-hailing becomes mainstream in Uganda. And ride-hailing apps will soon form marriages to work around these Ugandan context challenges together or they stand to lose the war together.
The road infrastructure has also proven to be a disaster, time and again, the GPSs have failed to correctly locate customers while some roads also become cumbersome on given days. Uber has had to create its own maps for many areas, some with fault. But is this mapping sustainable? Online payments are also still novel to many Ugandans and Uber is working around having mobile money additions to their services to transcend the challenges that arise from cash-systems.
It is clear that whereas the future promises much, it will be a big hurdle for these ride-sharing apps to climb to the top of the mountain. It is going to take more than just advertisement, it will take collaborations among platforms, partnerships with various players and huge capital investments in building some things like infrastructure from scratch. May the best App win.

I went for dinner at this place, which is in my neighbourhood about 5mins drive from my home in Uganda and could not believe the racism at Cassia lodge by Ugandan waiters to fellow Ugandans. I arrived around 7pm with my wife and our 3yr old and headed straight up the restaurant. We had to hustle for a table for a place that had four empty tables unreserved!! Then we got thrown one menu by this Ugandan waiter, which to my response asked for a second menu to which I did not get a reply.
We then spent 20mins without any service and then I thought they might be having staff issues until I noticed something really sickening in the 10 minutes that followed…mind you this place has a small dining area and a small terrace overlooking both my house and the nature of our beautiful country, so there was no mistaking us for being in a west wing at Cheshire estate…..BUT then……..the Caucasian people were getting SERVED FIRST. Two couples and a group that came after us got served immediately with menus & all and were asked what they wanted to drink.
I had to say something to the waiter that we had been sitted for over 20mins without service yet they’ve served two other people in that time. To my shock the waiter brushed me off aside with a facial expression of cringing his face. My wife stood up and went inside to raise our concern and we were ignored by these ignorant Ugandans. I am a Ugandan and I could not believe Ugandans can be this racist to their own people. I asked a Uganda couple that were sitted in the dining area and they said they had experienced the same treatment but apparently this is a “muzungu” place…..whatever that means! I was further disappointed that Ugandans can accept this sort of treatment in this day & age in their own country!!! We need to do our own bit as Ugandans to educate these people.
To the management of Cassia Lodge – you need to empower and educate your staff or even better recruit better ……No ones actions ceases to be wrongful because it’s his custom (racism, ignorance, et al), just as the bandits son of a robber is not exonerated because banditry is a family idiosyncrasy. I can assure you I will never have anything nice to say about your place any where I go around the world.

1. It is possible to do everything exactly as your boss prescribed and still get blamed – and sacked – for it.
2. It is dangerous to spend six months on a role without learning anything new. It does not matter how much you’re being paid to be a mammoth.
3. If you must date someone in the office, please, God, never in the same department as you. God.
4. There are two ways to do things: the smart way, or the office-prescribed process. The smart way has fewer spreadsheets.
5. The worst thing you can ever be in the office is ‘yourself’. Everybody’s acting. Don a persona.
6. Never do a bad job, not even when it’s pro bono. It may turn out to be the first contact for someone and you won’t be there to give context.
7. Do not be intimidated by people smarter than you. Sit in their midst and shut up. Shut up and listen. Contribute later.
8. It’s possible to whip yourself into a tense mess learning a new skill, only to find yourself ‘getting it’, passively, months later.
9. For introverts at the workplace: it is better to come across as a condescending snob than as a shy greenhorn.
10. It is okay to yell at work, despite what people say. Just ensure you are always on the right side and that you make up immediately after
11. If you are young and manage a team older than you, you have to work extra hard to become the one with the answers. Not easy, but worth it
12. I have worked with people who led by charismatic persuasion and people who led by hypertensive yelling. Charismatic persuasion wins.
13. Even when you are the smallest team player, treat your role as though you were managing a project.
14. You do yourself, and your company, a disservice when you do not rest. You will never be performing at peak efficiency.
15. Have a hobby outside of work. No matter how much you ‘love’ your job. Please. For God’s sake. Please.
16. Try, as quickly as possible, to ensure your ‘average’ is as good as, or better than, most people’s ‘good’. I’ll explain in another tweet.
17. You won’t always be working in full capacity. Your above-the-bar baseline will ensure your work does not suffer much.
18. Your work ethic should be a balance between actual work and the presentation of said work. You must be your own PR guy.
19. The key to being a successful employee is in making your employers think they came up with the great ideas. With a little help from you.
20. Always welcome the opportunity to learn something new even if it’s an addition to your responsibility
21. When you start out, you will have no experience. You will make seemingly huge mistakes. Being passionate and eager will cover your sins.
22. You should always be loyal to your employers in your first few jobs. It builds character. After that, look out for number one. That’s you.
