In my early college days, I loved talking about psychedelics. I felt that they positively contributed to my curiosity and enjoyment of the small things in life that can become monotonous.

There were also stages when I wanted to take psychedelics because I believed they would be constructive in shaping my mind.

After a few negative experiences, and the realization that I don’t have much else to explore from taking psychedelics, I told myself that I wouldn’t be touching them anytime soon. And it’s been several years.
