Stayed up till 1 am Friday night working on a deck. And still have a few hours to put in this weekend. But way more energized this weekend, than last when I had a boring 40 hr week. Ahhhh, ADHD...

Being bored makes me so tired. I had nothing much to do week before last, which should’ve been relaxing. But instead, I was exhausted. Same as normal human behavior, just amplified.

Not sure if I follow how that is ADHD vs normal/trivial human behavior

Hi everyone. I’m looking to buy a condo in West Hollywood and have been saving up for a 20% down payment for my price range. My question for anyone here who bought here (or anywhere in LA): how long did you rent before buying? What % down payment did you pay and is 20% a good idea? I’m early 30s, engaged, will not have kids for some time. I rent here now and love this area. Am an attorney. Any other questions I should be asking? Anyone have agent suggestions?

How do you redirect hyper-fixation? I’m trying to studying for a certificate. Instead I’ve found myself going down Reddit rabbit holes.

It seems that I can get into a groove with just about anything but studying now a days.
