leap

I take impulse buying to the extreme

OK so some of you will remember my end of year bleat in which I felt like I was in a rut and hadn't done anything risky or exciting since forever? And how I wanted this year to include more of that kind of thing while my brain is free from study stress? And some of you might remember last year when Dr Wheel went to Defcon, how I said that this year I would find a conference in my field to attend, damn it all?

I just registered for this conference. Three days plus a day workshop, in Oakland, in April. Luckily I had money set aside for just such an eventuality.

OMG YOU GUYS I'M GOING TO A CONFERENCE! ABOUT DRUGS!

In case you're wondering, MAPS is an international organisation, and they are the ones that have been working towards getting some real research done into using things like MDMA, psilocybin and LSD in therapy for PTSD and end-of-life anxiety. In other words, right up my alley.

Also, gonna be in Oakland in April. Anyone wanna catch up?
