Everyone has their vices, right?

Mine are pretty severe. My number one vice is obviously marijuana. I'm spending up to $120 a week buying my green, or as was the case this week, purple. Delicious! My second vice is shopping. Oh my god, I love shopping. Currently I'm lusting over this NARS set, and am obsessed with these shorts I just bought. But today, I had to get a grip, I gave my Discover card to the Italian and had him hide it in my room. So it's cut down on the smokes or not pay the bill. Obviously, I gotta cut down. How is this going to play out?

I'm already to the point where I spend less than $15 a week on eating out and little extras but I hate being so cheap, especially with my boyfriend! Plus, I love ordering food and getting smoothies between class. And I'd like to spoil my man once and a while with a nice dinner. And I'm on the verge of being an adult and graduating and I cannot be one of those stoners who just bums around after graduation. I must get a job and be an adult. Some serious cutting down is going to be required. I'm already lazing out on my homework. I fell asleep despite saying I would complete/start two assignments and now I'm tired and time is dwindling between those due dates.

Senior year is different; but I definitely have senioritis and need to find a way to curb that bad habit too. Especially without fueling myself with rewards like expensive makeup and froyo... Wish me luck.

In case you were wondering, I'm still crazy.

Back in October of 2009 (which was really just 4 posts ago because of my lazy ass) I mentioned I was getting prescribed. Well, Monday was one of those days where the adverse effects sneak up on me-- paxiflu. Most people who take or have taken Paxil experience some sort of side effect, most notoriously, withdrawal.

For the record, other than not being generally hungry, I have never experienced withdrawal from marijuana. Just my prescriptions. Anyway, I ran out of refills and had to have it called in so I missed a day... maybe two (my memory is shit, I may have forgotten to take it the day before). It starts with me acting like a bitch. Then I get night sweats and chills then nausea, vomiting if I try to take my meds, dizziness/lightheadedness, general shit. Legit, one of the worst things I experience and all I can do is try to sleep it off and keep down a bland meal so I can attempt to reintroduce a low-dose. And smoking doesn't always help; it'll calm the nausea but make the dizziness worse, helps me sleep but make me hungry for foods I can't be eating.

My poor boyfriend hates to see me sick, he's such a sport. He sat for hours in the dark so I could sleep and made me rice. I'm on the up now, having a morning bowl, watching Parenthood. Ultimately, the meds work. Since October 2009 a lot of things have happened-- not all good, some extremely dramatic and problematic, and super emotional. But I think I'm okay now. I'm not weepy or overly emotional, I don't have the severe mood swings, and I typically feel pretty good about myself and my job and my situation. It really has taken all this time to get the meds right, and to get to this point, which was probably why blogging fell through the cracks, it's a pretty intense experience, if not just downright exhausting.

Who knew taking care of yourself and eating right was so difficult? I mean, I've been up for two hours now and the task of breakfast just seems so daunting. The munchies will get the best of me soon though.

Stay Stoned. ♥

Mmmm, marshmallows!

I loooove the word marshmallow; specifically the mallow part. I bring them up because lately my favorite snow day activity has been popping a jumbo Jiffy Puff marshmallow on a butter knife and roasting it over the flame of my gas stove. You can make s'mores of course, but anyone who knows me I hate chocolate*.

Some of my favorite stoner specials include marshmallows. Like my mom's fruit salad, which I can eat bowls of (and every college student should make during finals) and my Spidles.


French toast/Cinnamon Toast Waffles
mini Jet Puffed marshmallows
cinnamon sugar

I use Eggo waffles, so I pop them in the toaster throw the marshmallows on top and nuke it for 10-15 seconds, you can also put it in the oven until the marshmallows are golden.

I'm telling you, I'm going to write a book with recipes, strain reviews, etc. Like the blog, but better. I'm not going to give out all my good recipes on here! Definitely some :) Anyway, once I get off my lazy ass I am going to roast more marshmallows, I just can't get enough.

*Most chocolate; I do enjoy Nutella, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate Turtles, Ferrero Rocher truffles, and a select other few.

Stay stoned ♥
