Hey there, hi there, ho there, I’m Minnestoner Girl.
I am a 26-year-old veteran, unemployed, college drop out, animal lover, passionate cannabis consumer, vegan, weirdo, and all around happy hippie. I have suffered from A.D.D., depression, anxiety, ptsd for most of my life. My life has been a series of ups and downs, and I never expected to be where I am today. I woke up one day and realized how little I was myself, and how much I hated the person I had become. I was being someone everyone else wanted me to be. It was ruining my life and destroying me mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I decided that I was going to fight for myself back, and this is that journey.
I am trying to find my way in this big world, and I decided to start documenting my journey and the experiences in it. I thought maybe this journey could help another girl or boy accept their weirdness that makes them unique. Or maybe help someone who struggles with depression, anxiety, or ptsd. Maybe someone will see this and decide to be a little more open about their cannabis use, or maybe someone will see this and decide to hug their pet. Whatever this makes that someone do, I want it to be good. I only want to put good out into the world, because that’s whats always been at my core, ‘doing good’ . I want to generate as much good as I can while I’m still on this earth. So I can leave a lasting ‘good’ impression.
Along my journey you (my internet friends/my subscribers/my followers) will learn about me and my life. You will meet my dog Kalli, and join in on our adventures together. Kalli is a two-year old black labrador, who came into my life when she was six weeks old. We have been inseparable ever since; she is my side kick, my best friend, my security blanket, my right hand woman, my protector, my little girl, my world. Anyone who has or had a dog will understand the bond that takes place. She is truly a unique dog, and I cannot wait for the world (YOU) to experience her playful personality.
I’ve always been a strange child, a bit off my rocker, I marched to the beat of my own drum. I was diagnosed with A.D.D. at age 6 and it helped explain a lot of my behaviors. The diagnosis never gave me the clarity to deal with my learning disability. Instead, I let the disability define me, and I gave myself strict boundaries of what I was and wasn’t capable of accomplishing. I let the fact that I was different stand in the way of who I really was. I was afraid of people making fun of me for being different. I spent many years trying to hide every one of the very flaws that made me who I am. Finally, I broke. I was done hiding every single one of my flaws. I was going to embrace being truly 100 percent me. It was a naked feeling, but that bare ass feeling helped me find the clarity I was always looking for.
I started MinnestonerGirl to show the world that “stoners” don’t fit into one stereotype, or even one group. I wanted to put my reputation and work ethic on the line to show the world that ‘potheads’ can be productive members of society. I wanted to put my mental health experiences out into the world, in hopes that maybe I can be one person’s light in the darkness. I want to help show that cannabis is a plant that our society can benefit greatly from. I want to help change society’s view-point on cannabis, and have it be more widely accepted through conversation, and education. I want help change the laws in my local community and around the country to have a more accepting society, to both medical and recreational cannabis. I want to share my experiences in hopes to inspire others to be more open about their cannabis consumption. I want help pave the way for a society that accepts cannabis for what it is, medication and a plant. I want to laugh and have some fun along the way too. Also maybe share a stoner story or two. We all have a few of those. So suit up, pack those bowls, and grab some munchies. This is going to be one hell of a ride, join me on it (subscribe)! MinnestonerGirl Youtube
