عن أبي سعيد الخدري، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “ لتتبعُنَّ سَنَنَ من كان قبلَكم ، شبرًا بشبرٍ وذراعًا بذراعٍ ، حتى لو دخلوا جُحْرَ ضبٍّ تبعتُمُوهم”. قلنا : يا رسولَ اللهِ ، اليهودُ والنصارى ؟ قال : “فمَنْ” صحيح البخاري حديث ٧٣٢٠

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch) so much so that even if they entered a hole of a mastigure, you would follow them.” We said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! (Do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said, “Whom else?” Sahih al-Bukhari 7320 In-book reference : Book 96, Hadith 50
USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 9, Book 92, Hadith 422

The real definition of kkaebsong

So the real definition of kkaebsong is

The original meaning of kkaebsong is ’kkab chuh suh jwe song hab ni da.’

Which means, ‘I’m sorry for kkab-ing.’ (kkab as in, act foolish, or acting out)

The word kkab-chuh isn’t a term you should use on tv, so the writers of the show told him to change the meaning.

If you watch the show back, you can see that this meaning makes more sense than the meaning he said. 

(Although now I think he uses it in different meanings because the fans know)

anonymous asked:

is it at all common for those with adhd to cycle through interests fairly quickly? I'll be basically obsessed with something for a few hours/days/weeks (hobbies, shows, movies, books etc.), unable to shut up about it lol, and then move on to the next thing, only occasionally coming back to certain interests. It means I never really get to progress or improve with things I'm seriously interested in which is definitely frustrating. Would love to hear thoughts on this!

Yup, this is incredibly common. On the bright side, it means we’re pretty dang knowledgeable about the things we’re interested in since we become saturated in the few days that we’re really focused.

Things I have been interested in over the years:

  • autism (this lasted for many years, waxing and waning with time)
  • guinea pigs (pretty constant for most of my life)
  • cross stitching (intense for a couple of months and now I pull out a project once in a while as something to do)
  • knitting (same as cross stitching)
  • Celtic knots (really intense for a few months and then I was done; pulled out again a few years later but it didn’t stick)

There are, for example, things I would like to be able to do with the knotwork in particular, that I simply never learned and probably never will learn. On the other hand, I am full of weird knowledge about guinea pigs!

And of course my ongoing interest for the last 10+ years has been ADHD (since my diagnosis) but I think that’s understandable. :)

We (as humans) like to group things into categorise, and we do it with almost everything we come across. We do it here with terms like ‘hyperfocus’ and ‘special interests’. However, this doesn’t mean that all your experiences will always fall neatly into these two categories. 

I know that there have been plenty of times when I’ve hyperfocused on something for couple of hours, only for it to turn into a special interest for about 2 or 3 days, and then forgotten or abandoned.

If you’re looking for a way to build a greater skill set in just one area, my advice would be to start attending classes. I find that having an external structure and time dedicated to that one thing makes it much easier for me to sustain my interest in something for a longer period of time.
