    It's Bad..however..

    I think it sorta saved my life a couple weeks ago..Lol. I was driving and I saw some weird sparks up ahead to the right. I kept looking to see what it was because it caught my eye. I noticed no one was driving behind me so I slowed down a bit. The sparks disappeared for a a few...

    Ugh I hate how you can

    either be really productive on Adderall or just a easily waste hours of your time on the internet just googling stuff or stalking peoples profiles. That and EP set me off track very easily. I guess it's time to do my work but not until I have the perfect playlist to do my work...

    I mean right now I'm supposed to be working,

    but I just get distracted with other fun things, like EP. It's even worse when A pretty girl passes by, I just have to look. I've almost gotten into accidents and such just by "rubber necking". It sucks, you show me something shiny and I'm looking at that instead of what I'm...

    I'm Sorry....what?

    This is, without a doubt, one of my major flaws. It’s not intentional and I’m not being rude, even though it certainly appears that way. I just can’t seem to stop myself doing it. If I’m having a conversation in a room where there is another conversation taking place...

    No, it's not my age causing this problem.
