Today on the way to lunch (street tacos YUM) my hubby and I had a conversation that has led me to writing something today.
I THINK BACKWARDS!! I literally do. Even writing this post. I started with what led me to make this post. Then I wrote the 2nd to last paragraph, followed by the very last paragraph before finally realizing I needed to restructure my writing to make sense. Continue reading I think backwards. It is frustrating.
Something I decided to do just spur of the moment. Hopefully I keep it up, if not… Enjoy these 3 random facts about me.
I’m not sure how I’ll do at keeping up on this because let’s face it…I have a hard time with following through. It’s not because I’m not filled with hope & enthusiasm. Or because I’m not 100% fully committed and intend to follow through no matter what. It’s because I have several differences with the way my brain processes things and functions.
If you met me you’d probably never guess that I had such a chaotic life or that I have tremendous social anxiety, and very rudimentary social skills. Everything that says “She’s a TOTALLY functional person!” when you meet me is a mask and things I’ve learned over 37 years of social trial and error.
I love instant ramen, I’m very picky about everything about it though so it’s annoying when it’s not EXACTLY the same every time. My ramen has to be “Maruchan Beef Flavor”. It has to be cooked for exactly 2 mins 45 seconds on a very heavy boil. Put the noodles in a bowl over 4 ice cubes and then pour the exact amount of water. Add the flavoring package, stir and add a SHIT TON of oyster crackers. But only “Premium Oyster Crackers”. And most often it’s edible. Sometimes of the texture is off (too mushy) I can’t eat it. Mental Illness FTW! 😛
I have started to write several times but just can’t complete a thought. Since I started treating my ADHD and other various mental health issues in early summer 2015 I go through these periods where I feel like I am doing a lot of mental, emotional, intellectual growth. It is hard to explain but I become very reclusive. It is essentially like I am peeling back layers.
I have so much to say right now!! I can go on and on and on and on and on. So in an effort to hopefully gain followers and not bore them to tears I made a choice when I started blogging to try to limit myself with how much I say in each blog post. Today I will not get to say even close to half of what I would like to say. I would like to keep your attention. I have the rest of my life to explain what makes me….me!!
Last weekend was Animeland Wasabi (February 10-12, 2017) and I learned so much getting ready for and at this event. I don’t even think I sold enough to pay for my table but the “lessons learned life-ing” as I like to say, that is worth more than money to me. Continue reading Social Anxiety & Animeland Wasabi
Have you ever had so many ideas and emotions that your brain just gets so overwhelmed that it explodes and poof it’s totally blank?
Yep, that is me every time I sit down to write a blog post. I literally have so many ideas and no idea at the same time. I wish that I just had a little mind elf that took dictation of all of my thoughts. Wouldn’t that be nice? Continue reading An introduction to my “beyond” beliefs.
I suffer from many mental illnesses and they are extremely severe forms of each. The craziest part? The extent of my issues are still being uncovered. I had no idea I had most of these issues until I was 35. I am 37 now.
November 2016 has come and (almost) gone. How is that even possible? I have been meaning to get this blog going more regularly. I have REALLY bad time management skills as I am sure will become blatantly obvious as this blog continues. Continue reading Oh November!! Where have you gone?
