I did not, that sounds like fun!

Amphetamines are pretty much as high as it gets. You could try smoking meth to get a little bit more but not much. Other than that, on top of taking amphetamines, try to pile on as much vicious rigorous sex as possible and maybe mix in other feel good drugs like alcohol or benzodiazepines or opiates to have a slight synergistic boost above just amphetamines alone. This won’t be healthy though

Exercise, video games, eating, weed, painting. Some of these are good and the others a slippery slope but they get me out of my funks.

I love working at the bookstore and I'm proud to work with such a large group of people from different backgrounds. I'm really happy we're all here. But it probably isn't the best idea to get someone to reshelve books when they haven't been taught how to categorize them properly. It's like I spend most of the day following one of my coworkers around and discreetly fixing what he works on. He's a great guy, very personable, but wow is it frustrating.

Anyone from Boston Consulting Group Boston Consulting Group (BCG) working in non-consulting - Technology/Engineering/Global Services?

How's the work life balance? Glassdoor reviews are full of "long working hours" and hence wanted to know if it's the same with non-consulting folks as well? How far is it true across the organisation?

Please help me shed some light to decide.
Thanks.

Hello fellow fishes!

Im trying to understand if I have add/adhd and the internet research is pointing towards a yes.

Im still a masters student and worked a bit (which was a disaster due to excel mistakes and inattentiveness) and have been a struggling inattentive and non focused student since ever..

Would you have any recommendations to better evaluate add/adhd or manage it at this point of time?

Ofc I am going to get professional help in due course but just wanted to know from you all.
