Well, a few months ago my friend told me she had gotten some of these seeds that made her trip, and me, being very interested in hallucinogens, purchased 10 seeds off her for $10. I took them in school one day at the beginning of 5th hour class of Aerospace(about 10:30 AM, we have block scheduling), the easiest class in the world, we make paper airplanes. For the first 15-45 minutes I felt like I was really stoned. Then I got a bathroom pass because I felt quite sick (everyone else who had taken them threw up). So I went into the bathroom and went into the stall and leaned up against the wall and made up a song about bathrooms and sang that for about 15 minutes, forgot why I was there and then went back to class. This was precisely when my mind went over the deep end.
A few of my friends in that class were sitting around me asking me questions and all I could talk about was fetchup packet airplanes that fly to the bathroom space station with water bottles. Then class ended and it was time for lunch (about 12:25 AM). I left the room to find my friends 'M' and 'R' and yelled and fell down. R had also taken 10 woodrose and didnít talk all lunch, he just sat there quietly observing the lunch room while I was walking in circles talking to complete strangers. Then M and I went out to try and get money and I ran into a few of my friends and told them about how I was going to throw up my soul and turn inside out and run around the school.
Now it was time for 7th hour. This is when I started full on tripping (about 1 PM). We were taking a couple tests and the room was dark and all the words on the paper were stacking up and going into the ceiling. I was looking around and everyone was melting and the walls were morphing and spinning and there were all these beautiful patterns everywhere. I talked to the girl next to me who I was quite well acquainted with and had also been in that class on drugs before about what I was feeling. I told her about how I felt like I was a balloon and how I was floating around the room and I was all tingly and I just felt amazing and beautiful. Then I got sick of taking the test and proceeded to just get up and walk out of the classroom and wander around the school for an hour or so. Then went back and got my backpack and wandered around some more asking everyone I saw what time it was.
Now it was 2:50 PM, time for school to end. M and I went outside the school and talked to people about mudslide, this thing that was going on at the school that night. A poetry and music thing where they served coffee and other yuppie type things. I ran into my friend 'B' who stayed with us the rest of the day. I was walking around and I felt like we were all skyscrapers, I was taking such gigantic steps. I felt like I was 1000 ft tall and I was stepping on little people and crushing them and this made me rather sad.
Later on around 7 or 8 PM, I was starting to come down and I took the 4 effexor capsules and M took 10 woodrose as did his girlfriend 'J'. As M and I were walking to the school, we walked by a handicapped kid and M walked up to the kid and started babbling to him and then yelled 'Donít talk to me when Iím upside down, I do cartwheels when Iím backwards! And ran into the grass and did a front flip and then ran out into traffic but didnít get hit thankfully.
We went to somewhere and I met my girlfriend 'JP' and we were kind of bored. There was an emo kid on the stage singing and M suddenly yelled out 'this kid sucks! Iím going to go jerk off on his face' so he walks up to the stage and just stood there staring at the kid for a couple minutes and then came back and sat down. Then we left and walked to a resturant and on the way the effexor was kicking in completely. It mostly brought back the woodrose as I was tripping again and I felt really emotional and positive and loving. When we got to the restaurant we sat down and ate and talked for a long time and met a cool guy who later on bought us cigarettes and we smoked outside of Mcdonaldís for a while and then walked back to the school and hung out with some friends and just talked. We all went home after agreeing that that had been the greatest night ever, for me it was the greatest day ever.
My first real trip and I had a great time with all of my best friends. Overall I give Hawaiian Baby Woodrose a 9 out of 10, the only bad thing was the stomach ache, which eventually went away. The effexor was also quite nice because it brought back the woodrose plus a little extra physical lifts.
