Hi all, this is your friendly neighborhood giant Gadunka: Bio. Grab a snack and your favorite chair, you're gonna be reading for a while. I'm here to talk about my two favorite things, things I hate, and quirky things about me.
Why? You ask. Well, I'll tell you: I'm bored. And off my ADHD meds.
So, a little about me. I'm a 14 year old guy living in Colorado. I have been diagnosed with a variety of things, shortsighted-ness, a constant cough, extreme nerdiness. But the two most prominent things about me, is my ADHD and my OCPD. They're kinda the driving factor in what I do most of the time.
Bio, I've heard of these things, but nobody knows what they really are, can you explain them? Yes. I can. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. What it does, is it fill my head with really cool, creative thoughts all the time, so I can never focus on one thing. Neat huh? Another thing, it that I have to actually, literally be constantly moving something, be it my fingers, my arms, feet, head, whatever. So I'm heavily active, both mentally and physically and can never truly be anywhere above 65% in the room at one time.
Great, now what's this OCPD thing? Is it like OCD? Why yes, my dear friend, OCPD is almost exactly like OCD. Just, a tad more... extreme. You see, a guy, like me, with OCPD, tends to follow extremely strict rules. Self-imposed rules. These rules can be for anything at all, from how to build a structure in Minecraft, or how to walk when on a black-and-white tiled floor (Step on ONLY the black tiles). Not only that, but we have really strict moral codes too, such as it physically bothers me, like an annoying itch, when I don't read a new text, or when I ignore someone in need. We also like to keep things nice and orderly, which is why I don't use the mobile site anymore because it's all wrong. (Suppresses inner scream)
How exactly do these things affect you and make you... weird? Another excellent question. and one I will answer in a type of list, thing.
1) It affects my personality.
(gasp! no, really?) I know it's not surprising, but yeah. My ADHD and OCPD have really made me who I am, an INTP. ( If you have no idea what that means, I strongly recommend you take a click on this link. Even if you do know, look at it anyway, the writing is brilliant and awesome.) It's affected my way of thinking and my way of doing things.
2) It affects how I relate to others
So, my being an inherent INTP has made people a complete mystery to me. I cannot have a conversation with someone IRL unless I know who they are, and their awesomeness-to-failure ratio. (a 10:0 ratio is perfect, and a 0:10 ratio is... well yeah)
3) It affects what I do for fun
Again, so obvious, but still true. Like, I play the piano, a lot. Usually fast paced or alternative rock songs (Lots of Coldplay) suit me, as they are both challenging and fun.
Now, that's out of the way. Onto, my hates, quirks and habits =D.
-First, I don't like using colons for my faces. =) =/ =D =P I don't know why, but I just like the look of the equal sign better.
-I hate when people are wrong, it just... I have to correct them. Especially when it's on something nobody cares about. Like when I know a random piece of trivia and somebody gets it wrong, it makes me really mad and just... UGH
-Sub sequentially, I also hate when somebody quotes a movie or a book or a video or really anything wrong. It's a quote, it's supposed to be exactly like the original, why do you insist on getting it wrong?!
-As previously mentioned, I have to step on the black tiles on a floor with black and white tiling.
-I incessantly tap stuff out without my knowledge. I'll start thinking at 2:00 and then five seconds later it's 2:25, the class is five pages ahead of me and yelling at me to stop tapping my desk.
-I have conversations out loud to people. Like, if I want to talk to my parents about something, I'll go through the entire conversation and all its possibilities. I do this with every major decision I make.
-I take a lot of time to think about myself and the reasons I do things.
-When I'm asked about these psychological tendencies, especially by someone who I don't trust or don't like enough to tell them, I pretend I don't know.
-I'm extremely forgetful when it comes to doing chores or homework. Sometimes, I don't even remember the homework being assigned until the teacher says "Alright, get out your packets."
-I hate the majority of people, simply because they refuse to be smart.
-I cannot come into contact with felt without getting goosebumps and feeling claustrophobic. (I think this has something to do with the fact that I used to wear felt pajamas all the time, which were really tight and terrible)
-I have to twist a doorknob when I hold it, even when the door is already open.
-I have a whole bunch of rules on what I can eat, and how I eat it depending on the meal. It has exceptions, corollaries, amendments and lists. This is just for eating and I keep it all in my head.
I might post more, but this post is getting extremely too long.
So, what odd quirks and weirdness-es do you guys have? Let the internet know!
