I'm a gifted ADHDer too, and it sucks so bad lmao... All through my childhood it was just "You're so smart, why don't you apply yourself?!" (While never telling me what that means or how to go about "applying myself") and now I have these huge expectations for myself without the executive function to actually divert my brainpower to studying for a job or the attention span for developing an interest to dedicate my life to. It's basically the biggest battle between the two halves of myself (1/2)
2/2 Between the part of myself that says I’m better than everyone else (since I was always “so smart” ) and the part that says “Well if I’m so smart why haven’t I accomplished anything yet?” so yeah, sucky.
the memed interview ALWAYS gets me at the part where pete is like “its not patricks favourite moment but its mine” and then he pauses and sits up and looks at patrick so expectantly kaskdkaKaksdkf before patrick says No Thanks Pete which means A. theyve talked about it before and B. Theyre fucking stupid and i love them
