So a while back, like, this summer, my friend and I went for a hike on some DNR land. Well...ok, technically we were going to pick blackberries. Here's what happened.
Side note: here is an example of how ADHD completely interferes with normal life. I type the short paragraph above, then glance aimlessly at the shelf above my laptop as I am mentally arranging the berry-picking story. Then I spy a bag of candies and I'm like "Ooooo!! Chocolate!" and grab the bag. Unfortunately, my impulsivity had already reduced this bag of chocolates to one candy. Because I've only had the bag since Saturday's excursion to the grocery store, I am immediately stricken with guilt at consuming so much candy over the past two-and-a-half days. I grudgingly toss the bag back upon the shelf. Then I'm like, "Oooo!! I'll make jello!!" So I go to the kitchen and made jello (orange). Then I realize that it will take 4ish hours to cool properly, but this is not acceptable. I'm hungry and I want my snack now! So I rip open a box of breakfast bars like a feeding she-bear, and pour myself a glass of tea. I finally make it back to the laptop...but my 10-minute "study break" was over a long time ago. *Sigh*
I'll return to the berry-picking story at my next study break.
