hacked and coded

tips & tricks & i’ve learned in 21 years as a human girl who has adhd

some of these i’ve learned on my own, or from family/friends, or reddit/tumblr/pintrest/facebook. but i’ve compiled a list that has helped me remain focused, organized, and not having my mind go all over the place. some of them are just good to know.

1. don’t put it down, put it away (helps immensely with clutter)

2. use a planner for everything, not just school (i use an actual planner because writing it down actually helps me remember it better, but an app can work too)

3. color code class materials, use a different color for each subject (i’m a nursing student and i’m always running around like crazy, my binders, folders, and notebooks for each class each have their own color. ex: bio=green, chem=blue, psych=pink. that way if i’m in a rush, i never grab the wrong stuff.)

4. rewriting class notes, memos, important dates, & anything else worth remembering helps to engrain it in your mind 

5. meal prepping twice every week helps to save time & money & also helps to keep your meals nice and healthy (it also helps me remember to eat because sometimes i have a hard time doing so since my vyvanse suppresses my appetite. it also helps to eat before i take my meds because then i have a more normal appetite and i’m not cranky. i’m also someone who would rather just not eat because i get stressed if i have to cook something, so having something all set and ready to go for each meal is such a huge stress relief)

6. do some sort of exercise for 30 minutes at least 4 times a week because it gets rid of excess energy, helps you to focus, & look & feel great (i do 45 minutes of cardio every other day on the stair-stepper & i’ve just gotten really into weight lifting. cardio definitely helps me A LOT to not be so cranky or all over the place)

7. pick out and get your outfit for the next day, every single night (i pick out EVERYTHING from the actual clothes, to the underwear, socks, bra, shoes, & accessories. this helps because i also have a weird thing about how clothes fit over undergarments & i also have a weird thing about matching clothes with undergarments, socks, & shoes)

8. pack your backpack and whatever else you need the night before (i put all my class materials, snacks & drinks, chargers, gym clothes, etc in my bag every night before i go to bed so i don’t rush or forget anything in the morning)

9. have a bag full of essentials that you take everywhere (i have a purse that i keep my wallet, keys, a protein bar, a water, my iPad, a back up charger, pen, small notebook, planner, gum, & hand sanitizer that i take with me everywhere. everything has it’s own special pocket & i never lose track of the things i need)

10. make lists of “to’s” (to do, to remember, to buy)

11. go from room to room whenever you leave someplace to make sure you haven’t left anything behind 

12. use post-it notes in visible places as reminders

13. set aside one day per week to do stuff you need to get done (cleaning, schoolwork, chores, grocery shopping, etc)

14. have a “time out” for yourself every other day to relax and recharge (i set aside an hour or two every single day to read or watch a tv show or do something that doesn’t require too much thought or energy. i don’t answer calls or texts, and i try not to browse social media. this helps me relax and not feel overwhelmed throughout the day or the week)

15. set alarms for waking up, tasks, & cooking fro better time management (i use a great app called 30/30 thats a great task manager. it lets you set up a list with a set time for each task. the timer starts and you go about your task, once the time is up, it lets you know you should move onto your next task)

Color coding and highlighting is extremely useful.

That is, if you know how to do it in an efficient matter.

This guide will teach you what colors are good to use and when to highlight with them. Note that these are all recommendations from me, but are backed up with evidence I collected.

It’s finally here and complete! 10 lakes, 7 frogs, 3 alligators, and oh so much plantlife. :P
Sit on the tree stumps and rotate to get in and out of the river! ;D
Hop in and see! 

Visit in Sunset: 6900-5392-2829
Visit in Daylight: 6900-5392-1841 (shovel required incase you get stuck by Froberts house!)

There’s a couple minor difference between the 2 times. Mostly sunset has some partially grown bamboo, which is much more scenic imo.

EDIT: Sunset dream has been slightly messed up by Luna deciding to overwrite my own dream address. If you want to see the original house interior visit in Daylight. Some dandelions and about half the semi-grown bamboo is now gone. But otherwise the town is back intact.

Hi! I have a nice idea for an AU and you're one of my favorite blogs when it comes to AUs (you're art and ideas just blow me away!!) what do you think about a Voltron Durarara! AU?

AHAHA anon pls i literally only have one au to my name sob there are so many great ppl in this fandom with amazing aus /o\

I haven’t watched durarara in so many many years tho ahhh i don’t remember all the gangs but a voltron DRRR au sounds like a bitter Hance rivalry romance (blue vs yellow) with Keith possessing the Saika blade(?). I would love if they all met at high school and they became fast friends only then to be betrayed when they find out about their allegiances.

BUT YOU KNOW…UNRELATED this made me think of a voltron K project au and i know K project is subpar compared to DRRR but… it’s so perfectly color coded. 

Attention Broke Students: get a $7 large 1-topping pizza with promo code 1TOP699 at papajohns.com

Do you live near a college campus or even attend college? Chances are, there are little coupon booklets all over town. 

Hoard those coupon booklets, my ducklings.

They are full of coupons for things that you actually buy, like cheap-ass pizza. There are like, at least 20 pizza coupons in my campus’ coupon booklets. Plus other stuff like oil changes and tanning salons and juice bars.

The best part is that online coupon codes almost never expire even if the printed coupon has an expiration date. The 1TOP699 coupon is from a booklet I got last year that supposedly expired in January–but I tested it out on papajohns.com just now and it still works!

Enjoy your cheap pizza, friends!
