The Marijuana Productivity Experiment
July 31st. 1pm.
Me and my buddy Kush are breaking in the morning at my place.We've got a spliff lying around and he wants to get high. I want to do some work.
Kush, unrelenting as usual, says to me, "You know what I do when I need to do intense study for a test?".
"What?", came my sarcastic reply, already expecting the answer and thinking he was joking.
"I get high, sit down, and focus". I guess Kush must have read the incredulity in my face, because he elaborated; "No, really. If you get high with the intent to get something done, and you don't sidetrack yourself, you'll ace it."
I was still incredulous, but always willing to try something new and awesome out. Especially if it helps me be productive. So I accepted his claim as a challenge, and so was born...
The Marijuana Productivity Experiment
Getting high with the intent of being productive on specific tasks, will lead to an uber-productive session.
Hot box my closet-like bathroom. Go fuel up on good food. Get to internet and make shit happen.

I significantly over planned, in case this turned me into a superhuman of productivity and I didn't want to have to stop and plan.
The Break Down:
Only read if you're interested in a good story. Skip to "The Result" if you just wanna know the results. Caveat: I forgot to record times xP
Getting (very) High:
After nearly dying in my steam and smoke filled, 3 foot squared bathroom, me and Kush tumbled out and gasped in the fresh air.
This was potent weed, given to me by my shaman-like friend Edgar, and I had rarely/never been this high before.
Getting (literally) High:
Then the sidetracking started. I was inexorably drawn to the outdoors at my front porch, and was breathing in the fresh air and sunlight when Kush swaggered up behind me.
Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remembered that I wanted to be productive this high. But I knew that I was at the most intense and mind-changing part of the high, and now was not the time.
Then Kush looked at the huge tree on my front lawn and said, "Dude. We must climb this tree."
I whole heartedly agreed, and immediately raced to the tree and jumped up. I had climbed once before with my companion Melanie, and I once again got up to the aprox1.5 meter high point I had found before with her.
Kush joined me, and told me to. Go. Higher.
Now, there's something I haven't told you about Kush...

I haven't been writing travel stories recently, but since I've been through so many different cities in the past month, I figure I should share a few little notes on each, just in case you're heading through one of them soon.
I just can't get into Beijing. It's not a bad city, but it's sprawling, smoggy, and a little bit faceless. This time I stayed in the hutongs (alleys), which was pretty interesting. Forbidden city is really neat, but the park right behind it is at least as interesting. Climb to the top for a great view. The only reasonably healthy restaurant we found was Saveurs de Coree, a Korean restaurant. Everything was pretty pricey, except for the bibimbap set meal that comes with little Korean appetizers, fried tofu with onions, bibimbap, and cinnamon tea. Not perfectly healthy, but the best I came across.
Now is the time for the big question. What do people think of sex and raping these days? There is this amazing and entertaining show on Netflix, Orange Is The New Black. It is about a woman's prison and their journey. All thought, it is very open about all the factors in life that are for the older audience.
Sex, drugs and all of the above. Sex implies two individuals, women or men, getting close together to make love or simply taking advantage. In this show, these women are pretty much desperate for sex since they're only women stuck together.
I personally think sex is a great thing but obviously there are then teenage matters and the raping. I guess i sort of got raped when i was younger but it lasted five seconds. My brother's best friend, Connor, had an older brother named Keith. One time, my brother was at a hockey practice and i had my little barbies and i was playing down next to the ice rink window. Next to that small area, there was a private bathroom. Keith decided to tell me " Come on! I have to show you something!" I was five at the time so i didn't think something was up. He took me into that private bathroom and locked the door behind him. He forced me to touch him and i wasn't that stupid so, i took my hand out of his pants and pushed him away. I hurried up to unlock the door because he was coming to get me. I got out in time and told my mom but he never got in trouble. His mom didn't believe that he would do something like that.
I guess i'm saying that being careful and aware is important. Older people around you might think they can do something but you must know they can't treat you how they want.
Just be strong and everything will be alright.
