ADHD 

God damnit, that explains some of today.

I'm getting ready for bed at 8:45 on a Friday because I'm boring and I look at my night stand.... and see my meds that I apparently never took this morning because I got distracted on my way to get water.

Television recommendation 

S1E7 of this is show is honestly amazing. There's a single line of audible, spoken dialogue at the end, "We did it!"

I've never seen anything like this before, it's awesome.
