I've been trying to write this philosophy essay for a pass/fail class all day, but I couldn't get motivated to do it. I mean, I could FAIL this essay, and still pass the class easily. Finally, I was like, "Screw it. I'll take a hit off the old bong and get back to work." Now, normally I never smoke until I'm finished with all my work, but I wasn't getting anything done any other way. And it worked! I had written nothing but my name in the 10 hours I was trying to get motivated to write today, and 20 minutes later, I had my introduction all done! The pot seems to have quieted down my brain from thinking "I don't want to do this. It doesn't even matter." and made it say "Whoa, man. Philosophy is cool. Let's get to work." Remember: I'm not blazed or anything. I know it's impossible to work when you're blazed. I just took one hit. Have any of you had similar experiences, or am I just a victim of the placebo effect?
