ADHD and Me: University and Living with Neurodivergence

I’ve mentioned my ADHD a few times on this blog, but unless you really know me, it’s not very obvious: I’m better at remembering obligations than most of my friends; I’m fairly low-energy, although that has more to do with my constant state of exhaustion; and I’ve been on the Honor Roll and Dean’s List for most of my life. I get good grades, do my readings, keep some semblance of a social life, and somehow find time to keep this blog, continue a novel, and occasionally hold a job. How do I do it, you may ask?

Very rarely is anyone completely good or completely bad, but it’s tempting to think that people who treat you bad are evil. But that’s just not true. Good people can do bad things; bad people can do good things. Bad people can also have bad things done to them. Both can exist at the same time.

 A Year of University in Pictures

On Thursday, I finished my first year of university. I’m not going to tell you that it was perfect, or amazing, or whatever else. Because truth was, it wasn’t. At times, it honestly sucked. There were several times throughout the year that assignments nearly overwhelmed me. Hey, last week I had four exams within five […]
