I want to draw more and actually write a manga, and I want to crochet more and I want to learn Japanese, but I'm not getting anywhere with my goals. I'm just completely overwhelmed and haven't done anything, and I hate trying to do one of the goals at a time because then I feel like I'm neglecting some of the other things I want to do. I'm on spring break now, and all I've been doing is sitting around in my room and watching tv and playing video games. Which I like to do, but I feel guilty because I'm not getting anything done. It feels impossible to do anything besides eat, sleep, play games, watch tv. I don't really understand how anyone does it.
So like a lot of people here, I'm in the middle of exams (A-levels) and if anyone has any advice or whatnot it would be appreciated. So far I've done my Biology AS resit and my first of two geography exams and I have the first of two biology exams and the second geography one on Thursday. I wevised for about 3 weeks for the biology resit despite currently struggling a lot with executive dysfunctin and I managed to finish all my notes and I think I did well in the exam. It made me feel really good and I was proud of myself. However since then (and even worse since last Friday after my geography exam) I've been unable to get any work done for either subject and I'm close to melting point so to say. I've tried so many different things like : Writing to do lists that are really speciffic and include breaks and all that Breaking topics down Switching between different topics (didn't like that one at all) The to-do list worked well before and now I'm struggling and have only crossed one thing off all day (and it's 2:48pm now) I'm kind of freaking out because I only have 2 days after today to study for these exams and I've only done 1.5 units out of 7 for biology and not even started geography. Also, I can't talk to school becasue the one person you are supposed to talk to about all that is off ill (and as far as they know I'm not aspie) and my parents will only give the advice of "it's only 2 more weeks" and "leave it for a couple of minutes and come back to it later" Anyone have any advice? Also, sorry for the long post
Noitartst posted a topic in Education & WorkSo, how do I plug this hole in my life, exactly? I'm open to re-training, but I'm on welfare, and I'm in a hurry to get bust on an internet startup. Maybe I sound rash, but I'm out to rectify not having been properly diagnosed with this , early.
Noitartst posted a topic in Education & WorkI seem to have executive functioning issues, and I was seeking guidance (and support) over how to deal with it. How do I work around it, to achieve my goals? Ilearn best by a comination of watching, and doing, but if the supports, aren't in place, I don't do much of anything, which has been the big story of my last twenty years, essentially. How do I break the mold?
