I was in a workshop the other day where someone was detailing how they, compared to others, show respect by not fidgeting and keeping eye-contact with people.
So yeah, I felt the need to make this comic.
Keep in mind: This isn't an ADHD specific problem and depending on the nuance, can stem from different areas like anxiety or autism. The eye-contact "issues" with ADHD stem more from impulsive eye-movements (the kind where you are not really looking at anything) and high distractability.
ADHD also has a significant overlap with eye-conditions and some studies suggest that ADHD medication can actually help with some eye-conditions. (Is that why my sight feels more blurry on days off medication?!)

I love all breads. Bread is wonderful.
But if I had to choose the best kind of bread, It would have to be the Brezel.
Soft, a wonderful mix of buttery and salty, and it goes great with a wide range of condiments from melted cheese, to mustard, to even marinara sauce
I should start waking up earlier on tuesdays and thursdays to stop by the german bakery before work.

I love scenes involving two people affectionately cook together. Deep down, I kinda day dream about that stuff, But I am cursed with the innate desire to cook alone.
If someone else is cooking, and I'm in the room, I feel bad if I don't offer to help; but if I'm cooking, all I want is to be left alone with my music and a cup of coffee. If someone wants to help, the best way to do it is to ensure I have a clean cooking environment before I start.

You know how animals in zoos or aquariums get stressed if their environment is off? That's me.
Other humans in the Kitchen? Stress. Pets in the kitchen? Stress. Dirty Dishes? STRESS.
When the environment is just right, It is not unheard of for me to wake up at 5 am to bake a loaf of bread and make breakfast for my family, and then spend the rest of the day cooking and cleaning. Going to bed at 11pm feeling happy, fulfilled, and at peace with the universe.
When the environment isn't right, It is also not unheard of for me to avoid even looking at the kitchen, cause it triggers an anxiety attack.

I have learned over my time as a Retail Worker and while interacting with staff in various college departments is, one of the best ways to improve the mood/attitude of someone working behind the counter is by expressing gratefulness.
A "Oh, Thank you! Have a great day!" Wand a smile with a positive, rising tone after they just helped you can really infect the worker with a more positive attitude. It makes them feel like their job isn't entirely meaningless in the soul crushing machine of Capitalism.
Overall, be nice to people who work in Customer Service, they don't get paid enough to deal with your BS.

5 days until my first published news story in the Foghorn
I am so excited
It's a small story, really low stakes
But it is exciting none the less. I'm officially a Journalist.

Personally, I don't consider "making tall tales to teach a complex lesson in a magical way" a lie.
You're not only helping the child understand something that their young minds are not yet capable of comprehending, like the heating/air bill. As far as I understand it, you're also just making the world a more magical place. You're creating a bit of absurdity and fun to a world that, to a kid, is already kinda weird.
Like that kid will look back one day and laugh at how naive they were and how absurd the idea of ants coming to snatch all their family's furniture was, but it will be a happy memory. Most of all, They will want to tell it to their children, if they have any. Like, this is what folklore and idioms are made of.
putting “lying to kids is ok” on the table immediately looks bad. but theres nuance. because kids deserve to have as much context and respect as anyone else you live with. but also. telling them that leaving doors open will make ants carry away the entire house is necessary until their brains can quantify the heating&air bill

Be and my BEST FRIEND, will literally go weeks without contact
and then I will randomly call him on a Tuesday cause I just felt like it, and we will start right where we left off, like we just had the conversation yesterday.
Adult friendships be like “I miss you bro, let's hang out in November"

Minimal tabs, Sometimes I accidentally go on likes some weird escapade looking for some tiny bit of information that requires me to open like 14 tabs, and even at that relatively modest number, the first thing I do when I am done is to just close everything I am not immediately using. At most, I will have 2-3 tabs open at any given time.
To my fellow neurodivergents -
Are you the one who has dozens of tabs open at time?
Or are you the one who has minimal tabs open and goes through effort to keep the open tabs number small likely because you feel crowded with too many tabs open?
