can i ask a question? how do you know that you have adhd? because i very much connect with the things described for type 1 adhd and symptoms in girls. for what i know i seem to suffer from depression and social anxiety (and i'm also a heavy maladaptive daydreamer), I can be very concentrated when i have to or really want to but it's true that i get distracted easily. I know that only a professional can really tell me but maybe you have some tips?
Hi! This is one of my favorite subjects, because I have type-1/inattentive-type ADHD myself. Type 1 is often underdiagnosed due to its less obvious and disruptive nature. Many people with this type are perceived as lazy, forgetful, careless, or needing to “apply themselves more.” This can cause anxiety or depression when the person with ADHD internalizes these messages and is unable to change on their own. I’ll probably think of more to add to this after I’ve already posted it, lol.
Here are some symptoms associated with inattentive-type ADHD:
• Inconsistent ability to focus- may be able to hyperfocus during enjoyable activities–such as playing video games, researching an interesting topic, etc.–but unable to concentrate during unenjoyable activities, like doing homework.
• Chronic procrastination- my understanding is that the ADHD brain’s internal reward system doesn’t function the same way as it does in a neurotypical brain. The ADHD brain doesn’t process things in the long term, so instead of working steadily to write an academic paper or fulfill a long-term goal, people with ADHD aren’t motivated to work on the given project until the last minute. When a person completes a task, their brain releases dopamine, which gives them a sense of pleasure and accomplishment. Since a person with ADHD is psychologically “rewarded” for finishing a task they procrastinated on, this ends up providing positive reinforcement for procrastination.
Chronic tardiness or showing up early- people with type-1 ADHD tend to lose track of time, which means they often show up to places late or overcompensate by showing up extremely early.
• Hyperfixations- having intense interests; this is basically the ADHD equivalent of the autism term “special interest.”
And some lesser-known symptoms of ADHD include:
• Decreased sensitivity to caffeine- there’s a trope that people with ADHD become extremely hyper after drinking coffee, but this isn’t true. Caffeine is a stimulant, and stimulant medications are prescribed to treat ADHD, so caffeine can help people with ADHD focus or even make them feel tired.
• Rejection-sensitive dysphoria (RSD)- hypersensitivity to real or perceived criticism.
• Sensory processing disorder- this is often associated more with autism, but it’s not uncommon for people with ADHD to experience sensory issues as well.
Edit: I forgot three pretty major ones! Disorganization, fidgeting or doodling to stimulate concentration, and forgetfulness (ahem… oops).
Summary: The reader helps Brett with schoolwork, but when you two decided to take a break it leads to something different…
pairing: Brett Talbot x reader
Books were spread all over your table, you furrowed your brows and scribbled something onto a paper, after looking up to your boyfriend Brett who wasn’t following anymore.
“Did you get it?” You asked worried while you handed him the paper.
“Y/n can I have a break pleaseee.” His fingers massaging his temples after giving you a tired look.
“No, if your not passing the test tomorrow, you’re not allowed to play in any upcoming lacrosse games, because your grades aren’t that good babe.”
“I know but who needs all of this, I mean that’s stupid I barely remember what I ate yesterday. So how should I remember all of this?”
“Also we have to get this project done till thursday, so there’s a lot of work to do, but we will get through this.”
You ensured him with a smile and pecked his cheek. A smug smirk was resting on his face while his eyes studied your face. In order for you to feel his figure standing behind you.
“You should really focus on the work, instead of me.”
Brett hummed in respond after gently placing on of his hands onto your shoulder, while the other one helped him to move your hair to the side. Giving him perfect access to your bare neck, the goosebumps already started to rise because of his touch. Although you didn’t want him to distract you, it felt good..
“Are you sure that we don’t deserve a break?” He whispered, letting his breath slightly tickle your ears. Your sighed in respond, turned around and pushed the chair to the side, so that you were facing him now. Brett scanned your figure and waited for your next move, his eyes followed one of your hands while you placed it behind his neck. His skin was already burning.
"I know what you are trying to do here..“ You mumbled, while the cheeky smirk on his face never faded. ”… and it’s not going to work, I guarantee you.“
“Well…” He replied as he leaned in closer, so that your lips almost touched. “…we will see.”
Brett’s eyes were filled with lust, it indeed did take all of his strength to not already rip all of your clothes off, but you couldn’t resist him and he was fully aware of that.
So you shoved him playfully away and stripped of your shirt, leaving yourself only in your bra, Brett watched you observantly, with a sinful smile on his face, as he softly bit onto his bottom lip, imagining the things he would like to do to you. His hands reached out for you and pressed your bodys back together. Igniting the heat between you two. Suprised by his actions a small screech escaped from your lips. Your heart started to race more than ever and one thing was for sure; in that moment you knew, that he had won the control over you.
“I told you it’s not going to work.” Brett stated proudly, his fingers brushed along your waist, down to your butt, you inhaled sharply as he gave you gently squeeze. Your body was burning and you felt how the adrenaline was rushing through your blood. There was nothing in that moment that you craved more than him…
His nose brushed along your neck as he inhaled your scent, your arousal was driving him insane.
You couldn’t wait any longer and hiked up his shirt and got rid of it in seconds, revealing his toned upper body.
“Are we a little bit rough today?” He asked and placed a kiss onto your forhead.
You laughed and gave im a tender kiss, your hands found themselves on his inner thigh as you felt how his muscles tensed for a second. You carefully rubbed him through his pants as his mouth slightly parted. Aplying pressure on the parts, where he needed you the most.
“Don’t understimate me, Talbot.”
His lips fomed into a curve after he started to place sloppy kisses on your chest, while you gently got a hold of his soft hair. Trying to enjoy the pleasure that was already building up inside of you. His fingers now touching at parts where you wanted to feel him the most, Brett decided that it was enough when he got a hold of your legs, gripping them tightly as you wrapped them around his waist. The feeling of your skin touching was making you crazy, you pressed yourself against him and felt how the bulge was forming up beneath his pants. Your noses slightly brushed as you leaned in for the kiss, gently tugging on his lips with your teeth, sending sparkles down your whole body. Brett moved you back to the table and used one of his hands to shove the the books and papers away, spreading your work all over the floor.
“We don’t need this anymore.” Brett muttered and gave you a wink.
A chuckle left your mouth after he sat you down on the on the brown table, normally you would protest that he threw all of your stuff down but in this moment you couldn’t care less. He placed himself between your legs, shoving your hips together with his errection lightly pressing against your inner thigh. You felt almost intoxicated, your heart pounding more with every touch he made. So you quickly unclasped your bra, as he cupped your red cheeks with his hands, trying to stop his desire for you by crashing your lips together. By getting more rough with every kiss.
“You are so perfect.” He stated after easily helping you out of your jeans, throwing them across the room.
“Good thing, that my parents aren’t around.” You breathed out as your hands wandered to his pants, after unbuckling his belt and getting rid of them finally.
He smiled and took his time to place kisses on every part of your burning skin, maybe more time that you wanted him to take.
“You’re on birth control right?”
You nodded as he leaned down, pressing your forheads together. Brett looked into your eyes with a smile, making sure that you were comfortable. You took a deep breath, the room was filled with a mixture of sweat and lust.
It was driving you insane.
He gave you a ensuring look and waited for your permission, you smiled after he gently entered you with his length, your body was quivering in respond while the pleasure was again building up inside of you. You moved your a little bit, trying to adjust the size that was now inside of you. He started with slow thrust, as moans escaped from both of your mouths. He placed a few kisses on your neck, sucking slighty on the thin skin until it turned purple.
“God damn Y/n.”
Him moaning your name sounded so holy in your ears, your bodys drowned in ecstasy as he increased his pace. You got a hold of his shoulders, kissing him between any other thrust. He used one of his hands to apply some pressure on to your chore, making you almost losing it.
Everything felt so good, every kiss, every touch was so passionate. In that moment it felt like the time only slowed down for you two. Brett exhaled heavily and made sure to leave more hickeys on every part of your body to show everyone that you were his and so did you. Your fingers got lost in his hair, caused by the knot that was growing in your abdomen. He moved faster causing both of you to almost lose it, the table was shaking, it indeed would break in a matter of time if you kept going like this. He dipped his hips deeper as you two leaned in for a last kiss, knowing that you both were very close. It felt like the world stopped spinning as you reached your climax, igniting the lust inside of you, the room was filled with moans and cursing, as waves of pleasure hit your bodys.
The blood buzzed in your ears as you felt Brett’s exhausted body on top of yours, he breathed heavily but looked very satisfied. After a while you started to get up and threw his boxers at him, which he caught perfectly. Brett’s lips formend into a curve while he looked at you.
“Well I must admit studying isn’t that bad at all.”
“Funny Brett, our project is spread all over the floor now.” You muttered and rolled your eyes at him.
“Yeah I mean now we have a prove that it’s not gravity safe.”
“Who taught you that?”
Your brows furrowed in confusion by the pointlessness of his sentence or more by his stupid but adorable attend to justify his behaviour.
“My beautiful girlfriend.”
You couldn’t help but laugh at his answer after he connected your lips with a kiss again.
A/n: Writing smut is so ankward, I have to cringe at myself so many times lol and to the lovely anon I didn’t forget about your request! I already wrote the imagine but I’m not really happy about how it turned out, but I’ll try to post it soon! Thanks for your patience!❤
Summary: You recognized the problematic customers the second you saw them. Lin, however, took the cake with being the most memorable client you’ve ever had. (TattooArtist!Reader)
Paring: Lin x reader
A/N:Thank you to @strongenoughfoundation for being awesome and giving me tips for certain parts of the story (you’re the queen of dialogue)! Also, thank you to @how-could-i-do-this for proofreading (I’m glad i’m getting better at not switching tenses lol). I wrote this in celebration of my first tattoo lol! Thanks for reading!
“Is that him?” you mumbled to your coworker Liz as you emerged from your room to the front desk, watching the man that paced back and forth in front of the parlor.
You could always spot the first-timers the instant you looked at them. You could sense the excitement and nervousness rolling off them in waves, their bodies tense from the anticipation of the ink that would soon permanently mark their skin.
It was more like a tsunami of emotions, crashing and tumbling over his body as he questioned his decision to get a tattoo. You felt it before you even stepped foot into the same room as him.
“It’s so unfair that you always get the cute ones,” Liz whispered as she handed you his paperwork. She had an appointment in ten minutes, and with the piece being a fairly large and intricate one, she passed him off to you.
You rolled your eyes, ignoring her comment and scanned his papers, noting his name and birthdate. “Lin?” you called.
He spun on his heel at his name, his swift steps having him in front of the desk within seconds. “Hi, yes, that’s me,” he answered quickly.
You inwardly sighed, knowing exactly what kind of patron he was going to be: the spazz that spoke too much, asked too many questions, and would hold his breath until he turned blue. “My name is Y/N and I’ll be with you today. What kind of tattoo would you like Lin?” you asked, watching as he nervously drummed his fingers against the counter.
His eyes widened, looking at you disbelievingly. “You’re the one giving me the tattoo?”
The neck cramp that you got when you handled frustrating customers reared its ugly head. “Yes. This is a fairly small tattoo shop and you just happened to come in last minute, without an appointment…” you said slowly, narrowing your eyes and challenging him to say anything further.
“I didn’t expect someone that looked like you to give me a tattoo. I’ve always pictured a big, burly man and not a beautiful woman that…” Lin trailed off, sighing when he realized what an ass he must have sounded, “I’m just going to shut up now. Sorry.”
Obi-Wan: [text] I know I am going to regret this, but what’s wrong, Anakin? Anakin: what do u mean Anakin: nothings wrong Anakin: y would u think that? Obi-Wan: I saw your post. Clearly you want to talk about something. Anakin: no y do u think that Obi-Wan: Allow me to copy > paste: “hungry and tired and cold but probably shouldnt expect much else today #soalone #asusual #iseehowitisudontthinkimasimportantasthecouncil #justsayin” ? Obi-Wan: A little hard for me to not feel like that post was directed at me. Anakin: well it wasnt Anakin: anyways im too cold to text rn ttyl Obi-Wan: Anakin, honestly. I will be home from this mission in a couple of days, can we talk about this then? Anakin: i dont even know if ill be home tbh im looking at apartment rentals Obi-Wan: Anakin they don’t let Jedi live off-campus. Also you don’t have enough money for an apartment on Coruscant. Anakin: i have enough for a motel on the lower levels what do u care where i live Obi-Wan: What did I do? Anakin: nothing obvs its my fault for remembering a special day that clearly doesnt matter to u Obi-Wan: It’s not your birthday. Or Valentine’s Day. Anakin: pffft yeah bc if it was valentines day id have a brand new pair of socks from u to cherish 🙄
Obi-Wan: Force, can you please just let that go already? Besides, I thought you liked the socks. Anakin: dont tell me how to feel im not the one who forgot something this important!!!!
Obi-Wan: [text] You’ve seen Anakin’s posts, I presume? Ahsoka: lol yup
Obi-Wan: On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely am I to ever figure out on my own which obscure holiday or anniversary he’s upset about me forgetting? Ahsoka: 0. he’s REALLY reaching this time. Obi-Wan: Damn it. Ahsoka: I COULD help u master kenobi but also it IS pretty entertaining, soooo…😈
Obi-Wan: I understand. Let the negotiations begin.
(Ahsoka absolutely loves using this stuff to her advantage. And you KNOW Anakin is the undefeated champion of dramatic vagueposting when he wants attention.)
(This edition of Anakin Skywalker’s Ridiculous Neediness for @darthluminescent, who is pretty much always here for Anakin’s spoiled antics.)
I honestly feel like majority of the fandom skipped over or conveniently forgets this conversation. This just emphasizes the reality of the Titan realm. There is no such thing as making a choice with no regrets - just the choice of least regret.
I remember people were all over Levi’s back for being so brutal against Eremika. I’ve already explained it was self-defense in another post (pretty sure it’s under the snk 83 or snk 84 tag). But no where did I see anyone criticizing Hange’s total disregard for anyone’s feelings lol I’m not mad because, at this point, I would’ve been just as done as Hange.
All this to say that she spares no one from the harsh realities of the battlefield and forces them to open their eyes to the truth. In the situation they’re in, they can’t afford emotional outbursts. Mikasa understsnds this, for she stated as much to Armin when they believed Eren was swallowed by a titan. It’s just easier said than done, and she’s realized this is something she needs to work on after getting Levi injured by Annie. It’s a long process of selective desensitization. Eren has yet to even comprehend this concept, so hearing this from Hange is probably harder for him to swallow.
Her admission probably added more salt to the wound in Levi’s heart to hear that Hange expected him to make the better decision and he let her down by allowing his own emotions for Erwin - and although he wouldn’t admit it - for the 104th “cadets” to guide his decision.
I love this scene because Isayama acknowledges what the fandom doesn’t and sets the record straight so that they can move forward and learn from their mistakes.
I am back to tell you guys about my concert experience!! The concert this year is definitely better than the experience I had for my previous one! Firstly, I was so lucky enough to get into the first row right in front of the left extended stage! I have to admit I chose that side just because that’s supposed to be Jongin’s spot for Artificial Love (heheh) but they moved his position during that particular concert :(
Overall I saw Jongin for 3 times. Because of the change of position, I heard he’s on the other side more than mine :( But it doesn’t matter because each time he came to my side it was perfect, because he reacted twice to my banners and the third time he was in front of me for full 3 minutes for Drop That (and yes, in that HOT SLEEVELESS TOP FEATURING HIS GUNS)!
For my side, the most that I saw was Chanyeol, Jongdae, Suho and Minseok! I gotta say my side is like Chanyeol heaven! You know how Yeol is one of my top biases so I’m not complaining hehe (AND THAT NEWLY DYED COPPER HAIR ALL STYLED UP UGHHH). Suho is the sweetest guy and his face is FLAWLESS. He looked at the fans so attentively and waved to each of them, and read all the banners! And it is sooo sweet how he tried to speak in English most of the times for us to understand ;; I gotta say after the concert I love him more and more!
Now let me tell you about how Jongin noticed me! The first time he came to my side was during Tender Love. When I saw him walking near I quickly put up my ‘종인이편’ banner (it’s by the fansite Ninibox and it means ‘by Jongin’s side’), and he saw it and pointed it and winked!
This was his reaction during that time! ;;
And then the second time he came was during Girl x Friend, this is the best fangirl moment of my life because Jongin actually stopped to read my banner and DID A CUTE DANCE IN FRONT ME! ;;
My banner means “KAI what did you eat to be that cute?” but I actually had typos in it haha! That “목구” was supposed to be “먹구” and in “cute” I had one small letter upside down lol. In my defense I did it at 3am on the day and I was too sleepy to recheck for typos! Hahahaha. I only found out about the typos when I showed this to my Korean friend on the day but it was too late to change anything because I didn’t bring my glue :/ but my friend convinced me that he’ll surely understand it anyway.. so I just went along with the typos haha.
So when he was walking towards my area, I quickly put up this banner and I was worried that he might not catch it because he was looking down and kind of in a hurry to get to the end of the stage. But my luck he was turning his face to my side and saw my banner and HE ACTUALLY STOPPED TO READ IT (MY HEART ALSO STOPPED LOL). And the most thing I didn’t expect is that he turned his body slightly to face me and answer my banner with an AEGYO DANCE! Omg. My legs were so weak I literally plopped down after he walked away with a smile. I really couldn’t believe my eyes.. Kim Jongin just danced cutely in front of me.. for me.. ;;
And I’m SO LUCKY again that so many people caught it in fancams! (I didn’t record it obviously I was in no condition to lol)
You see this time he was walking towards my area, he was supposed to be at the end of the stage but he stopped when he noticed my banner ;;
I was worried he might not understand because of the typos but he read it and even reacted to it :((
Look at his ready-to-cute pose lol I knew I was gonna d*e in a second!
THEN THE CUTE DANCE
I swear I’m the luckiest fan right there and then! My long hours of waiting outside in the blazing sun then the pouring thunderstorms was worth it. I will never ever forget this moment! But I’m telling you it is just not my banner that he reacted to but all of the fans’ banners with his name on it. Kim Jongin is really that sweet and precious..
The only fancam I have of him is during Drop That but I had unstable hands because I wanted to jump and dance at the same time while recording him and at the time stare at his beauty too lol. If I want to tell about the whole concert and other members too, this post will be too long already so I stop here hehe. But you can ask me about anything you are curious for, I’ll be answering them as I remember :3 but this is all I have to say in my post.
My overall experience was superb and perfect. I got to see all of EXO really up close and they’re all so divine looking! Once again.. I feel so lucky I got to stan this amazing beautiful guy called Kim Jongin. I really wish I get to meet him again soon ♥ for now I got to say what I needed to say to him, that HE IS. SO. CUTEEEE!!!! xD

So since i literally work 5mn away from the Olympia I thought I’d go check it out, just to be able to say I’d been there.
Honestly, I didn’t expect that seeing Harry’s name in big neon letters in real life would be so fucking weird? Like, if that was THAT weird for me, i can’t imagine what seeing him in the flesh in a few months will be like!
The queue was massive, even more than i expected. It went on and on and on all around the block and honestly i don’t think you can fit that many people in that place?
There were a lot of women, some signs (that made me awww), a few English voices. I am happy to say i felt nothing but tenderness for them, no jealousy. They are about to have one of the best nights of their lives and i wish them all the fun. I hope Harry comes to them refreshed and wild, and I hope they brought their rainbow flags. 💚💛💜💙
LOL you are literally too pure right now with all the bob ross posts you're reblogging <333
I know that this message is already very old! But thanks!! Bob Ross always manages to make me happy when I feel depressed. This pure man always manages to make me see life differently. Watching his videos when I’m sad makes me forget the bad times haha.
