My mom and I were getting ready to watch Mars Attacks! (1996) on Netflix right? And during the opening credits we were reading all of these really big name celebrities! Now we've seen this movie before but it's been a couple of decades so we don't really remember much
ANYWAYS we get to Jack Black and I get excited and I pause (cuz we like to talk during movies/shows, so we always pause when we wanna say something, then get back to the movie when we've had our side convo. That way we don't miss anything)
SO I remember I'd just seen a video on Tumblr again, the one where he plays that toy sax and is, of course, AWESOME! So, naturally, I have to find that video on YouTube so she can see, so I tell her and she's like yeah let's see!
We get to YouTube and watch Jackie boi rock out on Jimmy Fallon, then after that, one of the recommended videos caught our attention, but we didn't realize it was a freaking PLAYLIST. Luckily we figured it out before we got passed the 1st vid
ANYWAY the 1st video was him recording Tribute on Tenacious D and I'm like oh we've DEFINITELY gotta watch this one
So we watch it and I'm rocking out and when it's over I look over at my mom and she's got this dumbfounded expressing on her face and I'm like "what?"
And she says "I've heard this song before, but I didn't realize it was Jack Black! I LOVE this song!!"
And I'm like😃😃😃😃😃😃
But then we snapped out of it and realized WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE WATCHING A MOVIE
AND COULDN'T MAKE IT PAST THE OPENING CREDITS
So yeah, I've pretty much confirmed we both have ADHD at this point 🤦🏽♂️
It’s an app “designed by people with ADHD, for people with ADHD.”
From what I can tell it’s really well-designed and there is a lot of content.
They give you a 7-day free trial and then you can choose between $124.99 CAD per year, or $28.49 CAD per month. I don’t know yet which features are premium and which aren’t, so I’ll have to wait till my free trial ends to find out and then I’ll let you guys know.
14-day (non-consecutively) challenges
Live events with ADHD experts
“Daily focus” feature which asks you what your main priority is for the day
Here is the app info page on the developer’s website
Tfw you've run out of wordsing spoons and your brain is going to break down if it's asked to process (1) more stimuli, but your hyperfixation is going at Mach 3 and will eat your brain if you don't keep feeding it.
Arts and crafts are perfect for adhd folk bc there's an immediate and visual progress.
Cut fabric, sew it together. You just made clothing.
Put some beads on some twine. You just made jewelry.
You can see your productivity.
Chores are the opposite. Yes, your kitchen is clean now. But you'll cook again that evening or the next day and you'll have to start over. Yes, you vacuumed. But two days later it's dusty again. Laundry done, until next week.
Chores never end.
But arts and crafts, nobody can undo the thing you made. You can hold it up and say "look. I made this. I did the productivity today" and nothing quite beats that serotonin rush.
Edit: I usually leave as much info about where I have poached a meme from to share with Tumblr as many do not venture from our dark cove into the social media abyss.
The OG creator of this Glorious meme recently made themselves known in the comments and Her Memes are LEGENDARY on other Social media platforms so go check out her blog @jennhasadhd and giver her some love!
If you guys have ADD/ADHD, autism, OCD, or something else that affects your ability to concentrate, I highly recommend the chrome extension Mercury Reader. You just open whatever link you're using, then click on the MR icon (it should look like a rocket) and it'll simplify the page so that it's in a focus-friendly layout. Instead of having random pictures and word boxes all over the screen, it'll be in a vertical format with nothing to distract you so you can focus on what's important. You can also adjust the text size (small, medium, large), font (serif, sans), and theme (light, dark). And the best part is, it's completely free! It's honestly one of the best things I've ever downloaded.
This is an article without the extension. See that messy format, and how the actual article content only takes up a fraction of the page? It's no wonder it took me 7 hours to write that paper.
The same article, this time with Mercury. The user-friendly settings are at the top, and the rest of the article is formatted vertically down the middle with no free-roaming pictures or words. How nice.
