Been a while so hey, why not a re- .

I’m mj - gen X, bi/pan genderfluid (she/they), recently diagnosed with ADHD and still in the throes of “oh THAT EXPLAINS IT”. Texan turned New Yorker turned Michigander. Cat parent, crafter, bookworm, pianist, nerd, collector of hobbies, queso lover. Let’s get comfy and talk about time travel.

Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with a gender? You may be entitled to compensation‬

Also I want to make it clear that I’m not slamming my friend here, but rather laughing over how ridiculous I am. 😛

Show thread

Everyone knows meetings follow the laws of physics.

(Description: a friend argues that to move a meeting “forward” means to move it earlier and I disagree and invoke time’s arrow)

-if my daily routine changes AT ALL I can’t tell what day it is for the rest of the week. Once in college I nearly missed a final because I assumed it was a different day than it actually was.

-“at any given time I’m having at least three conversations in my head”

Show thread

-I wrote every single school report the last couple weeks before it was due.

-same thing with original compositions for end of year piano recital.

-I used to warn people I’m a chronic, unintentional eavesdropper and I can’t turn it off.

Show thread

“How the hell did no one wonder if I had adhd” random thoughts:

-I have 1000 hobbies. Most of them are because one day I thought “I really want I learn how to make that” and then obsessed over it/did nothing but that until the juice ran out

-as a kid I could only remember things if I wrote them on my hand. I could never successfully use a planner because I’d forget it existed.

-I get burnt out on foods “easily” (aka. food hyperfixation is A Thing and when it wears off….ughhhh)

I call it “creepy fat cat” because omg. So creepy. I love him.

Found one of my favorite prints that had gone missing in the last move. (“Fat Cat” by Marlene Llanes) 😀

Noon showing, pretty empty theater, recliner. I have cracked the middle aged movie theater experience.

Ok but can we all agree that J. Benjamin Rottenborn is the COOLEST name? Sounds like a Dickens villain.

Why yes, I LOVE not being able to turn my head to the right! It’s a whole new way of looking at life. 😣

Ooh, the final two episodes of The Way Down are out. Time to watch all the way through.

It’s amazing to me how different it feels the first night you sleep in a bed after it’s been moved to the other side of the room. Like being in a different room entirely.

(this is a Michigan-specific joke. our governor is Gretchen Whitmer, not Gretchen Wieners.)

Sleepy thought I had yesterday: I should make sure I'm registered to vote again this year so I can vote to reelect Gretchen Wieners
