So I took the acid last night at 7:03pm Friday night and then, I believe, my friends and I drove around to smoke pot. After 20 minutes the LSD had kicked in like crazy. The lights on the radio seemed all synchronized and other lights were going crazy. After driving we came back to my dorm room where I felt completely out of it. I was looking at this topographical map of the USA on my wall and the colours were cycling and fading into each other and just going crazy. The room was way too white.
We then, I think either explored the basement or went to this party - not sure which came first. But either way I am fairly sure that I missed a good amount of whatever we were doing because at that point I was in a state where to talk I had to remind myself of what words meant because I could feel a word or I could feel internally what people were saying but the words had different associations

than they usually did. I sort of felt different sounds/feelings for the words. Not sure how to explain.
At one point I was saying 'I have no idea what is going on.' and I think I meant it in the context of that I didn't have any idea what was going on in the car we were in, that I had no idea what was going on with the drugs, I had no idea what I usually did as a person.
And that last part is really something I am trying to explain to myself or at least one other person so I could think back decently to it. I felt like I did not know the world I was living in and that the norms that related to normal human life were really fucked up for me. I was not sure how people lived at one point. Considering that at that point all I cared about was cigarette warmth and music and I remember thinking, 'How do people actually live when they need to focus on so many things?'
I felt at one point that I was in some sort of game that I knew would end and that it would all be fine when I got out of the game but at the moment I had to figure out how to operate in the game which was hard because I did not know how to behave within the rules.
At the party I recall talking to many people and being overly social but really having no fucking clue what was going on.
I lost my cellphone in my friend's car and felt really sad about it but when I found it was very happy. Also when I found it I found a text message from my friend saying 'I think I love you' and another one saying 'LOL that was my girlfriend typing' so I called that friend (who really I had not spoken to for a while) and promptly informed him about the acid. Which was funny. Then I think I called him again and hung up on him sort of. At that point I really wanted to talk to somebody who was not the people around me so I called a friend and he told me to look at the phone which, at the time, was sort of confusing.
We then got back to the party and I talked to more people. Two highlights from that were:
1. This girl I dislike - I was coming out of the bathroom - and she said 'Anastasia, did I say something to piss you off' and then this other guy was asking me some sort of questions and I just thought 'fuck it, I can't deal with this right now.' and just walked off and laughed for about five minutes.
2. My friend and I were standing around and this French guy was asking me if I'd met him before and I had and told him and then he was saying something else and we had no fucking clue what he was saying so he, probably, thought that we were moronic Americans and started saying something about not speaking English trying to mock up and it was just the craziest fucking thing ever.
Later smoked more pot, smoked even more pot, smoked even more more pot.
Near the end of the party I was sitting on the couch and looking at purple squiggles and sort of collecting all of the colours in my head and then opening my eyes really wide and causing weird light patterns. It was cool.
Then we piled into a car and got to the place we'd be sleeping and I lay on the couch with my eyes closed and watched weird things and thought weird things and tried to assure myself that I had teeth and that they were not fucked up in any way.
Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
