hi

(this is my 4th attempt at writing this down)

i’m sorry for leaving so suddenly without making a post and leaving some people hanging. at some point i felt i needed more space, away from tumblr & other social media, but it turned out it took me longer than i expected to get back on track

as some of you know last year i moved to the Netherlands to live with my girlfriend and start university there and, to put it mildly, it’s been pretty fucking insane. my entire life changed over the course of a year and i wasn’t prepared for that in the slightest. my mental health has been in a not-so-good state since then, arguably it’s still not in its best state but i’m trying

i’ve been meaning to make this post for months now and i keep postponing it but i just have to get through it somehow 

i just want to say i’m so sorry for leaving without a word, and for not fulfilling your requests & prizes for the giveaway. no matter the amount of shit going on in my life, promises are smth very important to me and i really can’t put into words the amount of shame i feel for not sticking to my word 

since i said i will give more details, i will make a rundown of some of the shit below the read me if anyone’s interested

If somebody asks me what executive dysfunction is, I’m gonna point them to a web article or suchlike that explains it better than I can. 

If somebody asks me what executive dysfunctions feels like, though, I’d say that it’s like waiting for a video stream to buffer or for a web page to load. You could do so many other things, except you’ve only got a few minutes at most to wait, so most of them aren’t worth starting. So instead you read a few lines of an article or check out your tumblr dash or go get a glass of water. You fill time, because most people don’t like to stare at a loading bar for several minutes if they have other options. Sure, you’re doing things, but if anyone asked what you were up to you’d probably just say “waiting,” because you’re really just doing whatever you can to make the time go faster. 

Now just imagine that instead of doing this for a couple minutes, you’re stuck in this state for hours on end. You’re waiting for the thing to finish, but every time you check it’s still not done so you just keep waiting, breaking your day down into chunks too small to do anything with. You think about playing a game, but you don’t actually start it up. You get a drink, but you don’t make lunch. You open your word processor, but you don’t actually start writing. You’re stuck in a holding pattern, killing time minute by minute, and by the time you realize you don’t actually know what you’re waiting for, the day is already gone. 

It isn’t a matter of being lazy or undisciplined, or a case of making bad decisions. Executive dysfunction is a problem with the organ responsible for making decisions in the first place. When it stops working properly, stops being able to decide between doing this or doing that or doing nothing at all, you end up just going with what comes naturally. You fidget. You kill time. You wait, in expectation of a decision to wait no longer. It may be a long time coming.
