Don’t ask me how I got the idea because I’m pretty embarrassed about it. I made up an little writing exercise where I take one idea and expand it 11 times but I would take the opposing side of the same idea and do the same. Kind of a do’s and don’ts list except that I do it to se which I would prefer most. As the ADHD person I can really just fling ideas like a monkey flinging feces at other monkeys. Here’s an example:
11 things I would normally consider a date
- Hanging out
- Playing a board game
- Shopping (random, I know)
- Cuddling and watching TV
- Some port activities I like
- Video games
- Hanging out but with her friends as well
11 thing I wouldn’t consider a date
- Sky diving
- Playing the Oreo Lick Race (sounds dirty, but it’s not)
- Stand up comedy, while I’m the comedian
- Anything involving 2 in the morning stuff
- Drugs or drug related activities
- Anything related to my job
- Bumping into people and have long conversation and accidently hanging out afterwards due to conversation
- Stuff involving a bodily function
- Screaming out of a burning building and then asking someone “so what are you doing afterwards?”
- Church or any place of worship (awkward since God or any equivalent deity would be watching)
Then based on the fastest time I thought up both sides, I kind of guess where I am on the topic. In this case, I’m pretty easy in terms of thinking of stuff to do on a date and maybe a bit random.
I consider myself as a writer. Not like “I can write a a news story and win a Gillard” writer, more of a writer who just there to open up my own ideas or feelings. Mostly I write poems but sometimes I just write down random lines of text for the fun of it. Not very coherent texts either, it’s more of a congregation of jumbled thoughts like “I hope that’s not a boat in my bottle of pills” or “crazy manic mailbag monkey mower” (if anyone can draw this, I will laugh since it’s so random).
Anyways, a nice easy blog for now, I might write another tonight to get my mind off video games. Maybe share to you my plans on defeating this problem.
