The night was young, and so was I, but I was not inexperienced. Before this trip I must have done mushrooms over 15 times. It all started at my best friend Dans apartment, where me, him, and our friend Adam were planning to have a fun night taking shrooms and hanging out. This ended up to me so much more then just that.

We all started the night by taking around 2.5-3 grams of mushrooms each. Before they kicked in we must have smoked 3 blunts and drank around 4 or 5 beers each. We all felt the mushrooms starting to kick in around the same time. It was just like any other time feeling them slowly creep into my body, I always know when its coming when I start to stretch and yawn. I was very eager for this trip because together we bought around a quarter pound of these shrooms and were hoping they would be good. Lights quickly became more vibrant and sounds were distorted. Anything and everything was completely hilarious. There were periods of time where I would laugh uncontrollably for over 5 minutes. At one point I remembered how much I loved looking at bathroom tiles while tripping so I went into the bathroom for a couple minutes and enjoyed that.

When I got out Dan showed me a poster our friend gave to him, it was Kurt Cobain and it was a 4 foot tall 3 foot wide cloth poster. He was pictured wearing a leather coat and his hands crossed at his waist. The background was wavy blue lines almost like an ocean. We put the poster on the wall and as soon as I sat down I couldn't believe my eyes. Since the fan was on the cloth poster was waving around against the wall, and Kurt Cobain literally came out of the picture right up in front of my face. It was the most incredible thing I have ever seen in my life. I turned to my friends and asked 'are you guys seeing this too or am I just crazy?', they replied 'YUP'. We couldn't look away from the poster for a good 20 minutes, during which time one of our friends called up saying he was at his college frat house with 8 friends all of which also doing shrooms.

Dan offered to drive and even though I didn't really want to go he talked me into it. Before hopping into the car we smoked another blunt and took another 1-2 grams of mushrooms each. Dan had a hooked up car and I thought he would drive slow but boy was I wrong. During the drive there was a tunnel maybe a half mile to a mile long. It was late at night with not many people on the road so Dan thought it would be a good idea to push his car to the limit. Faster and faster he went, me in the front, Adam in the back. The visuals were so intense and we were going so fast me and Adam couldn't help but to start to scream out of fear, which mixed with laughs from tripping so hard. At one point I looked at the speedometer and saw we were going between 120-130 MPH and I almost started to cry. After getting out of the tunnel which felt like an eternity we realized we were only a few minutes away from the party and I was so relieved.

We walked into a typical dirty frat house to see a group of 7 or 8 guys sitting in one room looking around and giggling. We told them about the drive there and how intense it was. Since everyone was in one room there wasn't many places to sit so I sat on the floor against the bed. After talking for about 15 minutes someone said something extremely funny and we all burst out to an uncontrollable laughing fit. And then IT happened.

I passed out and drifted into a different world. I was really having a seizure but I honestly just thought I was dead.
I passed out and drifted into a different world. I was really having a seizure but I honestly just thought I was dead.
I went to another dimension floating through the universe. At certain points I stopped floating and I would see shapes and colors dramatically spinning and dancing. It was the most incredible sight I have ever seen (besides Kurt Cobain floating out of a poster) It felt like I knew the meaning of living, kind of like I was touched by the hands of god. When I started to come to for the first 20-30 seconds the real world looked like a cartoon. Dan looked like Bart Simpson and every thing around me looked like it was drawn.

When I could finally see I looked around to see 10 people staring at me like I was crazy and immediately knew something just went horribly wrong. I asked 'umm, what the hell just happened?' They then told me I had a seizure and was shaking on the ground. Before I could tell them what I saw when I was knocked out one of the guys who owned the house was kicking us out because I completely ruined his trip. Being 3-4 years younger then everyone else I felt ashamed and mad that I ruined the night. Once I got up I could barley walk to the car with out Dan and Adam helping me stay on my feet. When we got home I passed out immediately and just wanted to forget the whole thing.

One thing I didn't want to mention til now is that this was the second time I had a seizure on mushrooms, and it also happened one time after this. I wanted to tell this story instead of the others because 7 years later I still remember it like it was yesterday and the intensity was like nothing I have ever dealt with before. Good times.
