And I (mostly) only read non-fiction because I always felt like I was having to catch up Also, I generally don’t like going to class since I generally don’t get much out of it (I have ADD), so I often skipped class and read all these interesting books while I was absent from class. When I didn’t skip class and zoned out during lecture, I’d often just read books during class. That being said, the time I spent on books is largely uneven. Sometimes, I can stare at a few pages, but then finish the rest of the book in the fraction of time it originally took. It’s hard to explain this, but I’ll give a quote from a wonderful book I read about ADD (it’s called Driven by Distraction).
Okay, so this was back in seventh grade. Our final exams were coming up and -me being very easily distracted- I was trying to make sure every bit of title was perfect, so I wouldn’t get distracted. However, the nose-pad on my glasses was slightly loose, so every few second, I would find my glasses on the end of my nose. My hair on the other hand was very short, not ponytail length, but still long enough to bother me because of the curls. In order to solve both of these problems I decided to use some scotch tape and 2 hairbands… By the time I was finished, I had my hair in 2 ponytails sticking out from my head, my glasses scotch taped to my forehead and one of my dad’s [humongous] t-shirts on over a pair of regular length shorts for comfort. I was, you could a say a comical sight.
