Happy New Year everyone.
I rang mine in in psychonaut fashion by trying a Jedi flip for the first time. I wanted to make sure I was in the trip when the ball dropped, so I took the LSD tab at about 8:30 local time followed by the X an hour later. I prepared the mushies by chopping them finely in a food processor and mixed them into a bottle of OJ. I find that when I take them this way, the trip is only about 4 hours but it starts coming on in as little as 20 minutes, so I chugged my shake down a little after.
We then headed out for our favorite bar to meet some other folks and shoot some pool.
The X promotes strong feelings of well-being, so it reduces the likelihood of a negative trip. I remember sitting out back of the bar smoking a cig and looking up at the sky. I was captivated by how amazing Orion looked, and as the stars sparkled and danced for me I was overcome by a feeling that things would turn out OK. I have some pretty big changes and a lot of uncertainty and risk associated with them coming in the next couple months, so that's been on my mind a lot lately. I think they'll be easier to face now, I feel more positive about them.
It wasn't my best night of pool when we finally did get a table a few minutes later, but I had a great time around some good friends. I went ahead and had the champagne toast at midnight, but knowing how that dampens a trip I stopped for another hour and half until we got some beers. A few more mushies presented themselves about an hour after last call at the bar, so that helped keep me up for the remainder of that night's shenanigans.
All in all, great trip and good times. Sound off if you've also had a flip of any kind, and tell us about it.
