I am the prettiest pothead
Since this is the inaugural post of Ganja and Girl Talk I decided that I should just introduce myself. I am a self proclaimed pot smoking princess. I love everything girly, glittery, lacy, and weed related and this blog was meant to be an outlet for all of my makeup obsessed musings that I can't talk to my boyfriend about. I love beauty, I eat, sleep, and breathe it. The idea of learning about and applying my knowledge of skin care, makeup, brow, lash, and nail trends is what gets me out of bed in the mornings.
So with that being said, it is only natural that when I am in a lifted and therefore more focused state, that my mind would wander to the thing that I love the most. I am also a writer to my core. I love the idea of using words to convey ideas and feelings and images to an audience or even just to yourself. And as I am sure you have gathered, my third great love is marijuana. I have been an avid smoker since I was in college and although I am most definitely a stoner and down for recreational smoking any time, I am also fully convinced through my own experience that weed is most definitely medicine.
I have battled with anxiety for as long as I can remember, not just millennial bullshit diagnosis anxiety, but crippling can't get out of bed terrified to go out anxiety that lands people in the psych ward. After my stint in the university's finest behavioral health ward, I tried the anti anxiety and antidepressant cocktail that was offered to me but I always felt like I was walking through a cloud and all I wanted to do was sleep and have sex and go shopping. None of which were healthy outlets for my anxiety, so since I was already a recreational smoker, I started smoking to cope with how shitty the pills made me feel and one day I just stopped taking the pills but kept smoking everyday and I started actually getting up in the mornings and getting my life together. I got back in school, moved to another state, got a job and a car and kinda started getting my life back on track.
Not that it has been a perfect ride, but I will say that Ms. Mary Jane has held my hand and allowed me to accomplish quite a lot and I honestly don't believe I would have had the same outcome if I had continued with the pharmaceutical cocktail recommended by the psychiatrist. So with all of that being said, why wouldn't I want to combine those three things into a creative outlet for myself. Hopefully it will be enjoyable or at the very least entertaining, but the beauty of the Internet is that if you don't like it then you can move on to something else. But here's to being self proclaimed pot princesses and having lots of Ganja and Girl Talk.
