How to (Safely) Be a Lady Stoner
Smoking pot isn't just a boy's game, but you also don't have to be a rapper's babe in a push-up bra to smoke a blunt. I started consistently smoking my sophomore year of high school, and at that time it was not a common thing to find other girls doing this during lunch at school or before the Friday night football games. A lot of my girl friends gave me shit for it, telling me how bad it was even though they would take double the vodka shots I would and end up throwing up on some curb. I tried getting them to take piece rips with me, but they firmly resisted. This led to me hanging out with guy friends on most weekends. I quickly learned that most girls who were in some of the situations I'm in would not have been smart enough to make the right decisions, and that it's extremely important to know how to navigate the weed world.
The Observatory OC: Why It's the Best Small Venue in SoCal
Without the Observatory OC, located in the Santa Ana/Costa Mesa area off Harbor Blvd., my love for live music would not be at the strength it is today. Starting at the age of about 15, I have been seeing live shows anywhere from famous DJs to watching kids I went to high school with play. The amount of genuine love, passion for music, and laid-back atmosphere top so many other small venues all over Southern California.
