sign up for the gold package of ADHD today and experience the following moods:

The Loop - opening and closing the same three websites in succession for 15 minutes at a time before realizing that there’s not going to be anything new or worth doing on those websites (my three are Tumblr, Youtube and Wikipedia)

The Ack - seeing you have a new message and, though you have no evidence that it’s anything even remotely noteworthy let alone negative, feel intense dread and procrastinate looking at the message for 30 minutes/5 hours/a week

The Shimmy - changing sitting/laying positions every 5 minutes because god dammit i’m not going to be able to focus on whatever task i need to do if I feel any unwelcome physical sensation

The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle - making a hot beverage for yourself and then putting it down slightly out of reach and then not drinking it until 45 minutes later when it has already gone cold

The Bellwether - scrolling on Tumblr and getting the urge to google something/look up something on Wikipedia, but you keep scrolling and forget what you wanted to look up so you frantically scroll back to the thing that prompted you to think about looking the other (un)related thing up in the first place

The Bop - earnestly insisting that you’re not anxious because the other person sees your leg bouncing and thinks that you’re about to go postal

The Poison Dart - hearing someone say something problematic out loud and freezing because, while you want to correct them gently, you also feel intense dread and RSD that if you even so much as suggest dissent the person will immediately and commensurately stab you to death or snap their fingers and open a trapdoor to hell beneath you

The Ghost Breath - realizing you haven’t texted your friend back/at all/in 3 weeks and thinking “Hmmm, I need to do that” and then you don’t do it and much more time passes by 

The Stim Package - eating an entire family-sized bag of chips in one sitting because having something to chew on helped you concentrate, at least a little

The Bullfrog - going to get something that you don’t use often but you know exactly where it is and then it’s not there and you just keep going back to that spot 5 more times before realizing you lost it or it’s somewhere else completely different (like, not even in the same building)

The Morning Mist - regularly forgetting what recent life events actually happened and which ones were from extremely vivid dreams

The Seesaw Rivet - feeling like a wounded child who is about to get in trouble during every interaction you have even as you are entering your mid-to-late-20s and genuinely wondering when that pattern is ever going to stop if ever

The Pull-Apart Muffin - having ADHD and about 3 other diagnoses and wondering what is even what anymore

the dubious philosophy of salmon

[ID: A 5 page lineless digital comic in a realistic style. The illustrations are colored at the beginning and end with deep greens, and in the middle with rich reds, yellows, and browns.
page 1: A salmon swims along in green water, shown in all the stages of its life, then a top-down view of a waterfall with salmon jumping up it, then schools of salmon in a yellow stream. Text over these images reads, “I have so many questions about salmon migration. I wonder what it feels like. A kind of fervor? A kind of fear? Or just another bodily obligation? Is it like finding your home or losing your mind?”
page 2: A bear walks through a forest, followed by a close-up of its open mouth, teeth bared. Text reads, “Do they know where they’re going? Do they realize they won’t be coming back?” Then there is a circle split in two, the top half is the earth as seen from space, with lines showing the magnetic field, and the bottom half is a red salmon egg with a visible embryo. Text reads, “We’ve found that even after generations of landlocked life, salmon can still navigate by magnetic field. Do fish experience longing?”
page 3: Three panels of salmon swimming up a yellow river. Text reads, “Do they celebrate the familiar routes of their rivers? Do they recognize the same consuming pull in one another? It’s impossible to imagine they can’t tell they’re dying.
page 4: A detailed fish skeleton in butter-yellow crosses a matching crescent moon on a black background, the colors inverted where they overlap. Rust-colored outlines of fish scales fall to pieces in the background. Text reads, “Maybe it’s like falling apart, being laid bare before the world, illuminated inside and out, and finally known the way we were always meant to be known. Maybe it’s like silence.”
page 5: Tree roots grow down through stones and earth, then layers of strata, transitioning into a view of the sea floor, then looking up through a sunlit kelp forest colored in shades of green. A school of salmon swims in the distance. Text reads, “When the trees drink their bodies at last… I wonder if they taste the ocean.”

I can fire a gun without pulling the trigger.

I walk up to its desk and shout “You’re fired!”

I don’t need it anyway, I can shoot things without it.

I use my camera. It’s very handy.

I don’t need the camera to take a picture, though.

I just grab it from the shelf with my hand.

Tumblr post: Stop scrolling! You need to see something that will ruin your escape and make you more depressed about the state of the world!

Me: *keeps scrolling* :)

this is TOTALLY ok to rb, I, and others need to know that more people are like this.

You’re not selfish for ignoring current events. You’re not. 

ESPECIALLY if you’re like me and are a minor. We can’t do shit, so why should we be pressured into doing something we can’t do.

a lot of people use Tumblr as an escape, I do to, it’s somewhere to connect to fandoms and other lgbt people. 

Don’t let a post saying “You must reblog” get to you, it’s the same effect as “Rb or your mom dies.” It really is.

I want my blog to remain a “current-events-free” zone. I will not be crucified for it.

Do not be pressured by people telling you “You need to rb” it’s a scare tactic, and you are not selfish for not rbing. 

Thanks cause I feel like I’m clogging up my profile sometimes
