Living that life

Just another site

Overwhelmed I am, helpful you’re not.

You know it’s bad when my brain has been taken over by Yoda’s grammar structure.  Blame it on a massive lack of sleep, some Captain, and a need for something munchy to eat.

I keep thinking of all these wonderful topics to blog about, but then I get a chance to sit down, a moment of quiet and I just faff around on the rest of the internet.  I never really get wound down enough to write unless it’s in the middle of the night, which doesn’t really do anyone any good…because then I do things like write in Yoda-voice.

One of the biggest problems I struggle with as an adult with ADD is wanting to do ALL THE THINGS.   There are so many things I’m interested in doing and trying.  I want to paint, and sing, and act, and write stories, and poetry and books and songs and prose and articles and hilarity, and be a play-write, write the next favorite movie, and photography, and sew, and design, and create, and build, sing, dance, and aerial, and trapeze, and horseback riding, and learn languages, and travel, and write about travel and take photographs about travel, and bake (but not cook, just the baking), and eat new things (that I don’t have to cook).   I want to do archery, I want to learn how to shoot a gun, I’d like to learn to garden, and ice skate.  I want to do comedy, I want to do improv, I want to parent, I want to be an awesome wife, I want to read and discuss the classics, I want to know and understand history (and ohhh I love being able to discuss literature WITH history).  I want to be good at trivial pursuit, I want to be a good friend, I want to be a great daughter.  I want to understand architecture, I want to play great games (although not chess). I want to be great at organizing (with someone else to keep it all going), I want to do pottery and sculpture, and make jewelry and…and….and…

People see that list of things and think I’m just fickle and want to try the newest trend.  I REALLY want to be able to do all those things.  I want to try them and then I get frustrated when the start up cost to TRY them is insane.

Another problem with ADD, a MILLION business ideas and a complete lack of follow through to make any of them happen for real.  Oh well.

  1. I hear you, It’s like you’re living a part of my life(Minus the whole;”Being a good wife” part :-P )
    And from one A.D.D.(*Cough… With a smidge of Bi Polar) to another, I can safely say that we accomplish only a fraction of what we set out to do… But some of the stuff we do is Freakin’ Brilliant.. Not a bad trade off :-) (Hopefully the 30 second Youtube vid brings a smile :-D )
