Frisky Friday - 20+ Things to Expect After Legalization

Jumping_the_SharkAs cannabis legalization slowly inches forward, I thought you could use a post that highlights some things to expect once it's here.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert, nor am I giving medical advice.

1. Home Design: You may experience sudden urges to rearrange your living space.
2. Food Innovation: An inherited skill where you make the most amazing and unexpected fusions.
3. Dinner Parties: A unique multi-course dining experience.
4. Increased Libido: It's the closest thing to a woman's Viagra.
5. The Munchies: Sometimes you might not even be hungry, but you want to feel something crunch against your teeth.
6. Reduced Inflammation: It's a natural anti-inflammatory.
7. Higher Patience: You'll be able to stay calm when an asshole is talking to you.
8. Time Distortion: You may have periods where you ran through whole scenarios in your head and thought you must've been gone for an hour when it's only been 5 minutes.
9. Focus! Oooo, shiny...: You'll either have great focus or be Dory. Some strains are better than others.
10. Temporary Paralysis: Also known as couch lock. As stress relieving as massage.
11. Healed Trauma: It's the best thing for managing PTSD.
12. Dry/Cotton Mouth: Even worse when drinking too.
13. Forgetfulness: Some people forget their wallets more often.
14. Highs and Lows: Some strains lift you up and others bring you down.
15. Government Greed: Are they monopolizing the market where you are?
16. Reduced Fear: You might push through whatever plateau you've been stuck on.
17. Giving Less Fucks : If you've ever been told you have a stick in an unusual place, weed may help you lose it.
18. Music Taste: You might find yourself experimenting with Bob Marley.
19. Intolerant People: Remember that not everyone likes what you like and they might be asses about it.
20. Weird Sensations: Are your teeth floating in your mouth?
21. Paranoia: You *might* become convinced your friends are cannibals and you're dinner. For more on how that might turn out, check out my short story The Third Wheel.

Happy Friday!

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
