just came back home from my trip to texas to find out that a friend overdosed on xanax, vicodin, and a bunch of other shit. i'm very happy that he survived and is seeking help to kick this habit. can't physically be there to support him since we live in different states, but i'm glad to know he is surrounded by people who care for him

54 hours until I wake up for school, what a frightening reality.

Hold me, sweatshirt collection. Hold me tightly.

Really scared right now. I opened my wardrobe this morning and there was a moth on one of my socks. Absolutely bricking it. *Prayer emoji*

Katy and I just got back from India finishing off developing fabrics in the forest. It was amazing and singular but I just got back to one of my dayjobs to find 244 emails sent to me, 425 cc's and a smattering of 'all office' memos.

I was away 7 working days.

Katy has gone up to the factory to check on production and all I can think of is whether or not she'll have more emails than me or not because she's been away an extra day.

Fuck driving. Fuck LA. I scraped my coworkers bumper and fender this morning and he said it's gonna cost 600+ to repaint. Why can't we just all teleport to work.

seeing my dog after several days of being away, canoeing, dill pickle chips, the supreme preview, learning to enjoy required reading books

do you instantly feel like a man when you turn 18?? Actually though, ~manhood~ and college and starting a new chapter in life and generally being an independent real person is all so daunting and exhilarating and nerve-racking

it's not an instantaneous thing and I still feel 14 in the grand scheme of things, but it's the way interactions change and how your own reactions to situations differ from ways you may have previously taken

for example years ago a hot blooded chilljin would jump at the chance of any fight or scuffle, however now it's a lot more common to seek a calm conclusion to a potential straightener, perhaps that's more just me passively considering other people's well being above my own.

also back hair what the hell man

As much as CLASSES are going to consist of me flailing in the wind, I've also never been as confident in myself and mentally strong and rational as I am right at this moment, so even if school's gonna be a series of unfortunate events, I'll be ready to come at it with a nice attitude.

I'm receiving an immense amount of responsibility and respect in comparison to every past year of my life, but I'm still 12 years old at heart.

Also, I have a lot of sweatshirts to choose from. Strong positive.

When I was eighteen I did a morally Bad Thing that I look back on with regret and I'd like to think I wouldn't do that same thing at twenty-one and a half. I guess that's progress. If i went back over chat logs or something I'd probably see some more progress but i'm not doing that under any circumstances (shudder)

The feeling doesn't go away. Going to be 28 in 4 weeks.

I think you start to realize things more obviously once you get closer to 30 (at least I do), can make better judgements (and less stupid decisions), and it's nice having a more confident feeling of, "lol i don't give a fuck about what you think."

Also, I'm now doing things for me rather than what is expected of me - whether it's from peers or relatives.

28 is when you start feeling like an adult. Trust.

Probably because you've made it past the 27 club, you're in life for the long haul at 28.

"18" and "adult" don't belong in the same sentence (unless that sentence also contains the word "film").

I felt well grown up at 18 but now I think the difference between late teens and mid 20s is cavernous. One nuance is that people I know who never moved out of their parents house still feel quite similar to the person I knew at school, even a long time afterwards. I think moving away and living alone has an incredible effect on most people's development.


I also suspect that the last 5 years of anyone's life will always feel like the bit where they've grown the most

You start feeling like an adult when somebody weaker than you needs you.

i started to feel like an adult from the start of my second year at uni, mainly because i'm now buying my own food, paying rent, paying bills for the gas, electricity, internet etc. having said that, in a few years i'll inevitably look back at uni as being pretty juvenile, or perhaps as a nice transition phase from feeling like a kid to feeling like an adult.

most of the friends i grew up with didn't go to uni though so every time i go home it's weird to see how some of them have grown into fully fledged (and to some extent prematurely middle-aged) responsible adults, whilst others look like kids in adult bodies or just older incarnations of Holden Caulfied.

@raags

you're not going to physically die from taking 2ce or 2cb

saying that it's crazy misinformation to recommend that someone who doesn't know what 2ce is shouldn't go take it is a load of bullshit.

Jumping into 2ce as your starter hallucinogen is the most fucked up thing you could do to yourself. Plenty of other stuff to start with if that's the avenue you want to explore.

Gaza ceasefire over, Ukraine still on the precipice, ebola breakout continues, Yazidis stuck up a mountain or being slaughtered in northern Iraq, another shooting in Ferguson, US journalist beheaded by Islamists...

I was gonna make a news / current affairs thread for us all but i think it would be too depressing.

EDIT (bela):

LOL someone literally made one today and i didn't even see it a few topics down.

I was gonna call mine 'bullets, ballots and bombs' :(

Dunno, like, how "fucked up" any drug is is pretty much just based on its dosage. So long as what you're doing is established (2C-B has been in frequent use since the 80s), you're in a place you're comfortable in, and you're starting off with whatever Erowid says is a low/low-moderate dose, you should be okay.

Put yourself out there even if it seems awkward, try to get to know as many people as possible, participate in the activities even if they seem goofy or lame. Find a group of people to hang around with or at least another person so you're not eating alone. Remember that everyone else is going through the same thing and no one knows each other at all. It will be a little weird and awkward at times but from what friends have said it seems like all college orientations are a little weird. @tomsfood and I had the same orientation back in July so we geeked out over clothes and such :cool:

@bobo77 chewing gum calms your nerves, try that? also just remember that everyone else is in the exact same boat as you, and is just as insecure/worried about making friends

To finish my rep comment... They were also twins

A majority of the people said whoever was chewing the gum was usually "better" depending on the question. They were asked questions like "who is more aproachable? who has a nicer personality?" etc etc etc and it was really interesting.

The dead pan looks of the non-chewer kind of gave it away though, they seemed very depressed/sad/angry in comparison to the gum chewer.
