I smoke at 5:00. I work too slow if I’m high during the day.

Get your shit done, and then blaze away. Haven’t really stopped because of work - will be careful when transitioning projects in case new client decides to test when onboarding.

If anything, think I’ve leaned more towards 🍃 than 🍺; helps manage the anxiety and stressors of the gig better.

Schedule it 🙃

Use to a lot more. Started in college where the first few semesters I smoked regularly I got 4.0s so I justified it. That continued into work where I was getting good performance reviews so I continued to justify it. At some point I realized it was more of a crutch that was holding me back vs. a way to reward myself for working hard. I have a healthier relationship with it now where I’ll do it on occasion, but not every day. I think my train of thought is more precise and its nice to know I can function without wanting a slightly altered state of mind.

My girlfriend and I want to buy a house but she is carrying enough student loan debt that her credit would impact our ability to get a loan. Therefore we are planning on me being the only signer of the mortgage. I know my grandfather can give me $16,000 tax-free. Could he also give that same amount to my girlfriend and then my girlfriend give it to me also tax free? Since he could not give me the total 32 directly without it being taxed. Thank you!
