I was showing Nate this stuff and figured I'd post it. I don't honestly draw or paint too often anymore, and would love to do more stained glass but I have no materials at the moment. I'm sure most of you will recognize the non-car ones ;)

These next few came from the Breath of Fire 2 booklet. Mina, some sword, and a ring.

And my stained glass project in high school, which has since broken in a few places...oh well.

I don't have any painting pics that I know of, I did on Facebook lol might have to reactivate it to get them. The best painting I ever did was of a lighthouse and a sunset that faded from purple to orange, but I gave it to someone who was very special to me 10 years ago and I can only hope it still exists somewhere :)

that is correct. 7 and 3/4 of a month free of pot. i was a hash-head, dope-fiend, pot-monger, and every other euphemism you can think of.

still just as much of a burn out as i ever was though.

Vices are what they are.

Arizona is a peculiar place, out of every one of the people I know, I'm the only one who doesn't smoke cigs en masse. Granted the age groups I know are 17-30, this is subtly depressing. Weed is one thing when taken too far, but you'd be surprised how much of a bartering tool tobacco still is in this day and age. People fucking need it.

youre damn right theyre vices man, couldnt have said it better myself.

i still smoke cigarettes however, though i think i should quit soon, not the same as i used to be. but, at least i got the pot out of my lif, even if it was a little too late, but better late than never isnt just a cliche expression, it usually proves true.

Though I've never smoked, I

Though I've never smoked, I have smelled two different kinds of pot, chopped but unburned, side by side--one of which was "regular" and one of which was "the good stuff".

I thought I would have to smell them blind so as not to have a bias, but the difference was so striking that it didn't matter. I smelled the regular first, and it smelled "planty enough". But then I smelled the good stuff, and the purity of the smell was incredible. It smelled more like...mint, I'd say. And then to check, I went back and smelled the regular stuff, and I kid you not, it literally smelled like cow dung to me after smelling the good stuff. Crazy.

I've heard that if you smoke a bad kind, it also can have some pretty harsh side effects on top of whatever normally happens..

Marijuana is from the same

Marijuana is from a similar plant genus as mint.

The "bad kind" is basically dirt weed. It's grown on farms in 3rd world countries with the intent of turning out as much product as possible. It has THC all the same, just don't expect it to leave a good taste in your mouth or not give you a nice headache.

Proper growing is a very time consuming and delicate process. A multitude of things need to be watched and cared for.

"good weed" isn't so much dependent on strain as it is growing care. Even seedier strains with less potency can still taste fine under correct circumstances.

sometimes, dealers have a nasty tendency to spray theyre stuff with shit like windex (been there), or lace with some nasty stuff like meth (done that--not literally, only in the weed), but thats about the only way youll get out of the norm "bad" effects. if you go to sleep while extremely high youll have pot-dreams, and they can range anywhere from random and burnt, to terrifying and haunting.

other times, if you end up smokin too much, youll find yourself blacking out or losing vision, even sensation in your legs and arms, right to your finger-tips, and hear weird sounds inside youre head, called "inner-cranial noise", that, obciously, only you can hear. might sound like really high pitched feedback, sometimes it might sound like a real bad and fuzzy station on the radio, sometimes, and this is worse, BOTH. trust me, used to to me a lot just before i quit, almost every other time.

my worst experiance was blacking out by the gas station, the irving, and i was out for about 5 minutes. woke up to my buddy (wont use his name, so ill use his nic) boing slapping the side of my face saying "zach! zach!". i shit you not, it felt like that time the life gaurd at sea world hauled me out of the water when i fell of the rubber thigns used to go down the slides, even LOOKED like that. i could see the sun shining down through the currents in the water.

when i came to entirely, i had a big grin on my face, and started laughin.

havent been in the same state of mind since.

sometimes, you remember what you dream.

absolutely, beginners, or novice growers, tend to call it a trial and error process. i dont know much about it, only that sometimes you could end up with shit weed even if you meet the credentials for a good yield, though if you know what youre at, odds are youll have some fine green in your harvest.

good way to recognize a good seed? squeeze it. if its hard, and doesnt break, its a good seed. also, look at the lines in em, the little ones, like fine-pen storkes, if they are prominent and really dark, thats usually a sign of a real good seed.

If you're going to do a drug, well enough, but at least be able to trust the person you get it from. Weed generally isn't tampered with as a worst case scenario with coke (cut with glass) or ecstasy (cut with heroin). In the end, the best bet is to know the person you get it from. Shit like that isn't worth the risk to your body.

Dreaming while under the effects of THC is a bit of a mixed bag. People generally aren't used to the sensation, I tend to enjoy it since my "normal" dreams differ very little and it's a bit easier to remember. Everything is to be respected, just because it's close to impossible to kill yourself from smoking too much weed doesn't exemplify the fact that there's always a line that shouldn't be crossed.

yah, youd either die from carbon monoxide poisoning, or youd fall asleep before youd actually DIE from a "weed overdose" (the latter being the more likely). but just as surreal stated, theres always a line to be crossed, just be sure not to cross it.

I wish that were true in my case...about 11 years back I got some weed from a dealer that was laced with roach spray and embalming fluid need less to say I was rushed to the ER with rapid heart beats 200bpm I was freaking out. I stopped smoking for 3 years started it up again got major panic attacks stopped it in 2006 been clean ever since. Plus if I get hurt at my job and need to go to the ER Ill get a UA and if im dirty im fired 7 years of making a career for myself GONE!!!! Weed was fun but its not worth my JOB.

lol thank you. None of it was made on weed XD

I have never smoked cigs, and never smoked pot regularly. There was a time when I did it daily for like a month straight and I gained a few lbs I guess from the munchies, and it also messed with my menstrual cycle, so I really lost interest (that's not cool to me). I'm not against it at all, I think it's less harmful overall than alcohol, but even if it was legal, I would not be buying much of it.

I called bullshit as well, until she straight up vomited after eating when she hadn't had any.

It's probably not as "physical" as it is mental, so I should say she had a heavy mental addiction.
Either way, she was a crazy bitch.

by doing it and loving and loving it simply for the satisfaction of creating something that no one ever has before. was wrting LONG before pot stepped in, and i will continue to do so now that its gone.

that being said, i was more easily inspired when high, now its like theres a small hole in the bucket ive been dipping, and im only getting shallow drinks from my well whereas before i was getting a fresh draught, always quenching.

after awhile it, for me it seems, you can make your own inspiration.

metal btw, melodic metal (in flames, insomnium, omnium gatherum etc.), though thats not even close to the only things i listen to.

right now im listening to no rain by blind melon. stuck in the 90s, so sue me.
