I wa excited and nervous to try this chemical, I had weighed out 28-30mg. I was trying it out alone at night. I have lots of previous experience with psychedelics.

I was a bit nauseous and uncomfortable with anxiety before the trip. I decided to only take ~20 mg instead of the full amount and swallow the capsule. I took the capsule at 12:35 pm.

By 1:00 I suddenly notice everything is warping and I'm instantly tripping. I'm watching a show and the person on tv's face is swirling around in the jungle and the grainy film has a strange look to it. 

I go to the bathroom and close my eyes and I'm plunged into extremely clear and detailed visuals with patterned faces looking at me. I'm a little scared by the intensity for a moment but shake the fear quickly, pretty much as soon as I open my eyes I am fine and euphoric. The nausea (which wasn't from the trip itself) resolved itself pretty quickly once the trip started.

I put on a fast paced movie and it is incredible! Its fast and rock and roll and makes me laugh a lot. I am tripping balls and feel amazing. I'm sweaty and shaky and loving it!

I vaporize some weed and am very involved in the movie, while the room around the TV is warping. I'm enjoying myself so much that I decided to sniff up the other 10 mg around 1:45. It doesn't burn at all and my trip is steadily increasing. Once the drip comes down it is really disgusting and hard to get rid of the taste. I'm probably not going to do that again! 

Half way through the movie, it slows down and I pause it to put on some music. I walk around the apartment but the music wasn't rocking enough so I switch to Led Zeppelin III, fuck ya! I wander around laughing at everything. I close my eyes on the toilet and am plunged into amazing swimming geometries bursting with color. They are so crystal clear, colourful, and complex that I am in awe. I'm amazed at how my mind can produce these images and how similar they are to traditional patterns used by ancient cultures in art, textiles, and architecture. The mind seems to be able to produce these shapes from the unconscious and from the conscious mind they just seem to be aesthetically pleasing.

I stare at myself in the mirror and laugh and laugh and laugh... damn I'm good looking. Looking at myself is like looking at my family. I think about what it will be like to have a child and to see my own features reflected in them. I can tell I am getting more ready for a child and look forward to it very much. I think of my wife and my friend too and how I love them.

I listen to Sgt. Pepper's and stretch out on bed with just a dim light on and am startled by an amazing patterned cat looking like it's made of cloth. Its fur is completely covered in intricate patterns and I can hardly even see past them enough to tell which of my cats it is. The visual does not go away even as I move closer to her. I pet her until she gets weirded out by my constant laughing, which fuels more laughter until she leaves. This was around 3:06. 

I honestly haven't laughed this hard or for this long in ages.

I eat something and keep listening to music. I want to be naked and I undress and lay in bed.

Around 4:00 AM I take a hot shower, which is relieving to my muscles which are kind of tense. My calves are a bit tight as I stand there, but it doesn't bother me. After I get out, it feels like the trip had dropped off a bit. I can still see visuals and the bathroom tiles move around a bit, but I have to focus. The mind trip is much less noticeable. I'm still quite euphoric, but I'm a bit tired now and less elated. 

I put on the rest of the movie and draw and write in my notebook (I wrote a bit earlier as well, can't remember when though).

I eat a delicious apple and watch a documentary once the movie ends. By 5:00 AM (4.5 hours since dosing and 3.25 hours since sniffing the line) the main effects are mostly over and I'm just feeling the after effects. I take 2.5 mg of melatonin and when the documentary ended I went to sleep. It was 6:00 AM.

It was hard to fall asleep right away and I had a fitful sleep, waking up periodically until 1:30 when I started writing this. 

I tripped really hard, easily as much as 3.5/4 grams of mushrooms.

I'm tired and strung out the next day. My jaw hurts a bit from laughing so much. After I take a nap I feel better much better.

I am really impressed by this chemical, it was a lot like mushrooms and was incredibly visual. I kind of like that it didn't last too long either. Tripping this late at night is pretty hard on my body though, I think I'll need to be more conscious of this in the future.
