Things That Have Changed Since My Hiatus From the Devils Lettuce
I decided to take some time off from blazing recently. It's been a little over two months now. I only smoke blunts (swisher sweet) and was up to a pack a day, so I felt it was long overdue.
- •Dreams got vivid when I stopped smoking pot. Nightmares got more vivid when I stopped smoking pot.That's actually a lyric from Earl Sweatshirt's "Sunday", but it's true. Since I've stopped I'm remembering my dreams a lot more. It's even gotten to the point that I'll be in a dream and realize that I'm in the dream, and start controlling what's happening. It's even gotten to the point where I'll wake up from a dream that I smoked in and convinced myself that I'd actually smoked.
- •I left my studioThe week before the new year I decided I'd take on the freelance life full time. My whole reasoning for moving to New York was to expand my photography from product shots, and more fashion/portraits/street style. Unfortunately, I got stuck in the same bubble when I got here because it was an easy/consistent check that I could rely on, and I didn't have the drive to push myself. Sad to say the freelancing hasn't been as lucrative as I'd hoped, and I may end up going back to California soon.
- •I've lost some friendsI've come to find out people don't like it when you call them out on their clearly racists remarks. Now that I've been a bit more clear minded I've found less patience for their BS.
