The journey of a quirky grasshopper

life with adult ADD

All in the change of a name

I've been thinking about this space and it's function - why do I blog? How regularly do I want to blog? What do I want to talk about?

Writing-through my writing struggles

This is going to be a strange post - but that's okay. I'm up at 1 am. struggling to write in my CBT journal - I'm writing, but it's hard enough that I want to run away. Again.

Day 3 : My top 5 pet peeves

It turns out I have a lot of pet peeves (a lot more than 5, that's for sure). Instead of continuing to break my head over which ones to pick or leave out, I've put in the first 5 that came to mind, in no particular order (WARNING: Long blog with GIFs. Apologies in advance.)
