- Public Transportation
I use public transportation every day to go to work and back home again.
However, I must say that taking the train is far more efficient as public transportation than buses. A bus is stinky, inside and out, plus it is crowded, hot and uncomfortable.
Examples of super efficient transit trains are the NYC subway and the Montreal subway system. Both underground effectually not disturbing the flow of traffic.
KUDOS to underground subway systems!
- I've Been Robbed!
Me…my parents stole me from me, they changed who I could/would have been with their selfishness and incompetence.
So, now, at this stage of my life, when most people are planning/dreaming of their retirement, I am just discovering who I was way back then.
Getting to know my natural tendencies rather than suppressing who I am is a full time job at best. Working the new/old me into my current life situation is tricky, especially with taking into consideration the needs of my spouse.
Tricky, tricky, tricky…good thing he's pretty open to change for new and improved.
I just have to ensure I don't shock him into having a heart attack…after all, I would like him to enjoy the me I am finding.
She's is much cooler than the person he's been living and loving for the past 30 years.
- Worries On My Mind
My vent today is about the vast majority of people, with boring jobs, not interesting careers. And, about living with ADD/ADHD and working so freakin' hard, every single day, to control my natural tendencies, identify and suppress all which are "unacceptable" in mediocre office jobs and working to be on time and organized.
The ability to get things done without much thought, such as getting dressed, showering, daily mindless chores and arriving somewhere on time are ALL things that require much study and thought, planning and strict controls for an ADD/ADHD person.
By the time I am ready to get out the door to leave for my mediocre, boring office job (so that I might have enough money to live on) is so exhausting that I often wonder if it really is worth it. It's not like I will ever be able to stop the thought out plans and controls I have developed…ADHD does not go away, EVER, even with treatment and medication.
My big deal is WHY? must I go to so much trouble to do something I dislike and am not naturally inclined to do? Is it really a healthy way to live, to deny all of your natural tendencies just to conform and be somewhat acceptable?
I doubt that.
I doubt that very much.
I'll give it a few months, then decide what I will do.
Procrastination…now that's something that comes naturally.
