‘Bird’s Eye View’
‘Bird (tm)s Eye View’
Okay, so I could do this all day long I think but then, it sounds too exhausting to even try to remember all of the ramblings going on inside this head. My Name is irrelevant, but just for other purposes, I guess so you can try to get a visual, I (tm)m a 42yr. old female with a bachelor (tm)s degree in basically nothing, as I like to say. I have one child that because of my own anxiety, irritability, and depression, bla-blah, is the work of at least four children. Also, I forgot to mention that I (tm)m married, to a man that, for some reason, loves me (still) for the exact reasons I drive him totally crazy. Let (tm)s just say that he thinks I (tm)m a train wreck on purpose, I guess, because he doesn (tm)t believe that anyone can be that loony/silly, call it want you want. Oh, by the way, he (tm)s a Libra, if that means anything to you. For those who haven (tm)t had the privilege ” they hate to be late. It doesn (tm)t even matter what the supposed event (tm) is. You, fellow procrastinators and ADDer (tm)s know just what kind of habitual problem this can be. For those of you who don (tm)t understand, I believe most timely persons would call it Poor time management (tm). By the way, saying that last phrase to someone who has ADD/ADHD is like telling a person who is physically disabled, that it is all in his or her mind.
As a young adult, I just knew that I was special. My friends would make up nick-names for me like, Spacey Tracy (tm) and my mother would call me Mouth (tm), I think mostly because I was interruptive, and did not like to wait. As of currently, I still have no patience, and continue my interruptive ways because otherwise, I (tm)ll forget what I was going to say. That bug (tm)s me because it makes me seem like an airhead and also because my thoughts are terribly insightful, and I wouldn (tm)t want anybody to do without my wisdom. I do, after all, spend a lot of time just thinking (tm) also called Spacing Off (tm) but again, whatever you prefer. That reminds me, that if I could just find the right job, where I could make money thinking grandiose thoughts and contemplating the fate of mankind, but never have to finish what I start, coupled with pointing out the obvious flaws in the world around me- would be spectacular! Unfortunately, it would be my luck that I am most likely to be over qualified for that one, so I guess I (tm)ll just continue to ponder.
