Hey whats up it’s Jordin. I took about 1.5 grams of shrooms and had myself a little trip. This amount of shrooms is a little more than a microdose experience but not quite a full-on mushroom trip for me.

Some interesting thoughts came out of my trip, and I want to share them with you in their raw format. They came in bits and spurts, which is why I broke them up into different sections in this article.

I’ll have some commentary throughout, which will be in this italicized font. But I’ll try to keep my commentary to a minimum, only if it serves for enhancing what was alive in me at the time I wrote the words down.

Mushrooms have been calling to me for awhile. So I decided to take them up on their invitation for my attention and see what they had to teach me.

I took the mushrooms and then I wrote this in the notes in my phone:

I dedicate today’s trip to Happiness.

Love and Grace and Play, please meet me here and teach me your ways.

Following is everything I wrote down in my journal and on my notepad in my phone while I was putting together a puzzle and tripping :)


Okay okay okay

I had some shit I wanted to write down.

I’m such a lil jourlnaler (sp?). That is so fucking cute of me.

Mainly this. That I get to choose what kind of trip I want to have. The mushrooms were just like hey whats up glad to be here now what would you like?

And I was like uhhhh you mean I get to choose what kind of trip I get to have?

And they were like of course. You always have. You have full control of your own experience.

And I was like fuck I guess I do.

They were like yeah this is what you’re learning right now. You experience what you look for.
