a) i have a really short attention span

2

I used to have a cute idea that went along with this, but the first two of the set didn’t really turn out like I’d hoped they would so I took the text off and just put up the better two instead.

Essentially, Merida tells Jack she can catch a fish. He doesn’t believe her so they wage a bet in which the loser owes the winner a date. She almost had it, but evidently it didn’t end in her favor so he teases her about it. Of course, Jack wants to be treated special. She’s gotta give him the whole nine yards, y'know? Flowers, romance, the whole shebang.

Basically they’re adorable dorks and I have a really short attention span so we’ll see if i ever finish it.

Let’s Talk about ADHD

Some of you may think that ADHD is just someone getting distracted by squirrels all the time. And while easily distracted is a symptom, it’s more than that. (In all honesty, I got distracted by a video I was watching for 5 minutes up to this point.)

AD(H)D isn’t a brain disorder, per say. It’s a Neurological disorder where messages to the brain are fired faster than normal. This results in divided thinking and short attention spans. Someone with AD(H)D will start a project and leave it unfinished to start a new one. They won’t think to do something until they see it right in front of them. Most of their decisions are made on the fly, not really thinking too ahead.

Now, the H in ADHD means Hyperactivity. That means that…Ohh how do I explain this…Your thoughts are usually displayed through impulsive actions? You act before you think? Something like that. It’s tricky for me to explain.

Now, unmedicated, people with ADHD have a very hard time concentrating on important things like school work or anything that doesn’t really grab their attention. It makes passing school very tough. And the hyperactivity makes it hard for them to make friends who aren’t scared off by their boundless energy.

As someone who had to go through the first grade undiagnosed, it was difficult for me to really fit in. I had a hard time making friends. And when I was finally diagnosed, but when I forgot to take medication, I ended up scaring my friends because they weren’t used to this ricocheting personality I have. I didn’t feel like I had a chance to make many friends. And I ended up getting picked on and bullied (sometimes even physically kicked) until the eighth grade.

To this day, I wish I had the same way of functioning like the other kids. I wish I didn’t have so many thoughts at once all the time. I wish I could control my energy without the use of pills. ADHD sounds like fun, but it isn’t all fun and games.

Now, I hear all sorts of Squirrel jokes all the time because of my disorder. And I’ll usually laugh because it’s true. But this is something that you should keep in mind:

DON’T GET CARRIED AWAY. NEVER ALLOW SOMEONE WITH ADHD TO BECOME THE JOKE ITSELF.

We Should Take Some Time Off

AUTHORS NOTE: So I know I haven’t really written in a while due to the issues with my attention span and other mental issue things, but I decided to do this short fluff because why not lol. Point is, I hope it’s alright :)

So when Luke had that amazing stubble of his not too long ago, I was itching to draw him and Calum in a fanart where Luke wants to kiss Calum but Calum pretends to not want to kiss him because of his stubble when it was really because he was so turned on by how sexy it made Luke looks. I had to draw it and had the drawing lines for a week or so. I got around to finally finishing it today. Well as finished as I could be bothered to cause I have a short attention span. And guess what, flameretardant123 actually wrote a cute as heck drabble on this stubble topic too! Check out Beard Destiny!

Toodles till my next fanart :)

Forever & Always (A Joshifer One Shot)

A/N: Hey guys so I needed to channel my feelings about filming being over and since I didn’t want to make myself even more sad (and since I’m already writing an end of filming scene for Whirlwind), I wanted to write a nice, happy piece starring my two favorite idiots.

This is probably a bit inaccurate, since I’ve never experienced what I wrote about here first hand, and also pretty short, since I didn’t really have the energy or attention span to extend it. Anyways, this was inspired by a CF press interview that unfortunately I lost the link for. I hope you enjoy <3

“Are you sure we can’t just make each other friendship bracelets?”

            “Jen, no,”

            “No, seriously, a snake around a pole, it’ll take me twenty minutes and then we’ll be friends forever. Ooh, or I could do a candy stripe. I would do a candy stripe for you, Josh!”

            “Hm, yeah, I’m good,”

            “What about one with UK colors? I would risk my father disowning me to make you one of those,”

Being a writer with a short attention span is the fucking worst because I’ll be really interested in a subject for like a month or two??? Like I’ll spend every waking hour developing a world and characters and going “OH MY GOD WHAT IF THE MAGIC WORKED THIS WAY” or “OH MY GOD WHAT IF THEIR BIOLOGY WAS LIKE THIS” and having a real grand time developing the story, and then I’ll start writing and five days later my attention span is up and I no longer want to write the thing. It’s not even that it got too hard for me, it’s that I’m no longer interested in the thing. It’s not fun any more. How the hell am I supposed to write a novel like this?

watching movies with a short attention span

Everyone with ADHD or  a short attention span knows the terror of watching movies or 40 minute episodes. Here are some things that help me focus:


- put your phone on the other side of the room/out of reach. We all check our phones for one quick message and 20 micutes later we’re on instagram, tumblr, … having no idea what happened the past 20 minutes in the movie.

- fidget.

- watch the movie/show in your second language or a language that you don’t know. IDK it just works really well.

- watch in a dark room. I know everyone keeps saying how important it is to sit in bright places but trust me it’s so much easier to focus without other visual stimulation

- know when to stop. If you feel like you can’t focus anymore, stop. Run up and down the stairs a few times, check your social media for a few minutes, get some water. Just continue when you feel like you can focus on the screen again.

so you know that fagles translation of the odyssey i’m always on about? my flatmate has just discovered that it is available as an audiobook read by, and this is completely true, ian mckellan, and, even better, it’s all on youtube for free! it’s genuinely amazing, and i really recommend it for anyone who has a hard time with reading long texts; i’m not really in a position to judge myself, but my flatmate is dyslexic and he says it’s great for him because he finds dense texts tiring, and i personally love it because i have a really short attention span and having someone read this stuff out loud is so much easier to concentrate on

Just Letters

Title: Just Letters 

Pairings: Jeon Jungkook/Park Jimin (Jikook/Kookmin) (slight yoontaeseok and Namjin)

Genre: Soulmates, dystopia 

Author’s note: This is just a short little something I’ve had on my mind for my Soulmate AU pt 1 and pt 2. I haven’t yet completely fleshed out the idea and it’s still in its toddler stages but I really love it and I felt like I needed to write something for it even though I have a fanfic and a one shot I should be working on >.> So much to do, such short attention span…

“-our security systems cannot be breached, it’s simply not possible. Dear, citizen, if I may put your mind at ease, we at Jeon Corp have done all we can to keep you safe within the domes. Our systems are immune to any so-called hackers in the wastelands. Please, you are all safe. No amount of viruses or weaponry can penetrate our enclosure.”  

Yoongi scoffs from across the warehouse basement, the light from the flat screen television illuminating his pale face. He’s sat at what could only be described as a catastrophe of wires and plugs surrounding three separate computer monitors, sipping his mug of coffee languidly. His scoffing continues throughout the daily broadcast from within the Dome, catching Jimin’s attention when he barked out a laugh at Chairman Jeon’s weak attempt at placating the angry crowd at his feet. He’s surrounded, from what Jimin had bothered to observe, by a see of ravenous reporters and protesters, yet he remained as composed as ever. The man’s expression probably hasn’t changed since his childhood. 

“Look at that smug bastard,” Yoongi rolled his eyes for the fifth time since the broadcast interrupted his basketball game. “He thinks I can’t hack into his precious system? We’ve broken in for supplies five times this week, you son of a bitch.”

I know everyone is moaning about the update. Thing is, I have a very short attention span so scrolling quickly is my coping mechanism. With the new reblog format, it’s hard to tell where one post starts or if I am still looking at the reblog comments. (Especially mobile) The avatar and font are the same so it tricks my eyes. It really gives me a headache. I am spending less time on the site and have been posting far less this week. I will look for fix programs but I feel for other users that are struggling with the new format. I’ll be back but I wanted to explain my absence his week.

(fic) it's all about language

warnings: really, really dumb boys, and eventual dirty talk

The three of them are looking at each other again, and luckily, Eren doesn’t see any traces of amusement. He thinks he might see some anxiety, but he’s probably just imagining it, because why would any of them be anxious?

Reiner slaps his hand down on the table suddenly, making Eren jump. “You’re right, Eren. You did the right thing, coming to us.”

This is Eren trying to ask Levi out, and he unfortunately decides to go to Jean, Reiner, and Connie for advice. Fin is basically to blame for this. Also I am breaking it up into two parts because I am stupid. There will be actual dirty talk next time, yes.

Happy Birthday Tim Rice-Oxley 

“I think my influences as a songwriter come from far and wide, but especially from books. I’m quite a slow reader, and I think I really engage with a book emotionally. Often a book will really be a big part of my life for however long it takes me to read it. Sometimes I’ll be dipping into it for weeks and months, reading a few pages at a time, because I have a terribly short attention span. And when I’m not reading it, I’ll find myself thinking about it, and talking to other people about it. I think all that does definitely come out in my songwriting.”

( OUT: i liked this idea that’s going around, and i think i’m gonna plop it on here, too.  LIKE THIS POST FOR PERMANENT INTERACTION. if and when the mood strikes and i have a thread idea, i’ll hit you up; if i want to send IC asks, i’ll send them whenever; if you reblogged a meme, it’s guaranteed that i’ll send you like 6 asks ( okay not really ) !!!! i have a very short attention span, and sometimes my drafts don’t work with me / i get extremely bored of a thread, and i want something new but i’m too shy to approach other people believe or not ???? this’ll help me with that okay. so, basically, if you want me to bother you for the rest of eternity, like this post. )
