The After Times: Tales of an Unintentional Nomad: The Hotel Room

This hotel room…

Is my “temporary home,”

Is My “Sanctuary,”

My “safe place,”

My “Prison,”

My “PTSD Machine,”

My “Library,”

My “Experiment in Resiliency,”

My “Bathroom Kitchen,”

My “Recovery Room,”

My “bad habit tumbler,”

My “Leap pad,”

It has been so many things in the last year. I did NOT want to come back to it. I’ve tasted the nectar of spaces with more than two rooms, one of them not having a toilet in it. I’ve argued and pushed for lower temps using central air, and I’ve cooked…


The Cap Chronicles 19 - Taking a “Troll Break” to Post An Update…

It’s been a long enough while where I’ll have to edit this post when I see where the errors are from my keyboard beginning to break down and some of the keys not working so great…

I haven’t microdosed in a while. I’m getting towards the end of my supply, which sucks so much bc if I can enough where I could take it regularly I wouldn’t stop taking it regularly. Everything was improved while microdosing. I didn’t lose a day to being unfocused, I had more…


The Cap Chronicles Part 18 - It’s Been a While Since We Last Spoke…

So you’re here for some Micro-dosing updates and I aim to please:

I have not tried to add Niacin to the stack yet. Pending the purchase of Niacin.

I have on occasion taken a one cap dose when I’m freaking out over (high anxiety) and need to “come down” and if not functional at least keep my blood pressure lower.

I usually prefer a 3 cap dose opened and mixed in orange juice. My “Orange-Tek” is quite nice, I can feel it when it starts working…


The Cap Chronicles Part 17 - A Tool Not A Cure…

So the 3 Cap Orange-tek, which sat overnight and really was given enough time to react with the acids in the juice went well. Strong effects and chill AF that day. I listened to classical music for my anchor, which is on right now in the background and I got things done with little to know anxiety or angst.

The next day the effects were weaning off and I remembered I saved the shortcut to my homescreen, so I loaded up the classical station again. It feels a little…


The Cap Chronicles Part 16 — Today Was Going to Be a “Down” Day

I had a dream last night that I went back to work at my old call center. We did not leave on the best of terms. A great last day story though:

I was late for 45 days straight. Not terribly late just late enough. I had taken to a 20 minute nap in the break room after lunch to let my meal settle. By this point I had already started secretly working in the corporate kitchen in the building where the call center was located…


The Cap Chronicles Part 15 - Where Have I Been?

AND WHO have I been? And “Where do I want to go?” And “Who would I like to be?”…..

I ask these questions pretty regularly. And I ask the nuances of what brings those questions to the surface pretty regularly too. Way too regularly methinks. I also have something written with “methinks” in it. It just happens. A pinch of the dramatic.

I too a break for a couple days from microdosing. I wanted to see what would happen. I wanted to see how I would handle things. See if…


The Cap Chronicles, Part 14 - I’m An Awful Trader

I am agitated. I am angry and upset quickly. I am spontaneous in the worst way right now and behaving like an irrational junkie when I traded today…

I am also not taking a cap today. I woke up with a headache, very light one, similar to a hangover. I’m not sure if it was the 2 caps or the weird sleep schedule I did last night. Again I went to bed early, this time knowing I was going to miss my evening gratitude social meetup with friends. …


The Cap Chronicles, Part 13 - 2 Cap Wednesday

I’m already feeling the stress of today. Today is the day my credit card gets charged for the room. Last night, I decided to use my reward points, almost all of them to pay for the next 14 days. I need to save some money and I have a car payment and car insurance coming in fast and hot.

I sweat to god my car insurance has doubled for no reason. I will be reducing my coverage and I hate that. But I will reduce it and look for a more…


The Cap Chronicles, Part 12 - The Law of Something-Or-Other

I feel hungover a little bit today. I woke up early enough and slept some but my “game is completely off today. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before but I’m dragging ass a lotta bit and I need to be on point today. This was not expected…

Neither was the dream I had last night before I even got into the bed. I fall asleep in my office chair All The Damn Time. Way too often. Like my neck is hurting and I’ve caused injury over the last year…


The Cap Chronicles, Part 11 - 2 Cap Day

2nd cap taken at 1:48pm, The day is going alright, as long as I don’t think about how close I am to becoming homeless. Real homeless not hidden homeless. Living in the car homeless.

I spent the morning driving for 3 hours for roughly $17 not including gas and tolls. I was hoping it would lead to more work. It 100% didn’t. I checked the app as I headed home. Nothing. Another company that governs the work, suddenly all the work I’ve been watching has magically disappeared. …
