distractions in between

According from a random albeit *credible* online article, Attention Deficit Disorder is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder characterized by impulsivity, hyperactivity, and distractibility. It's usually common in children but can also extend to 23 year old females who plant trees and watch birds for a living. 

Impulsivity aka I’m out of control

I quit my first job through text message. Heavily intoxicated with GPS during a co-worker’s farewell inuman, I felt inngit that he’s finally done pitching ad materials for crappy pharmaceutical projects so I sent an SMS to my boss saying I’d be filing my resignation on Monday.  To celebrate my unemployment, I spent every peso of my life savings in Boracay. I went home flat broke and tanned.
My two tats are both walk-ins. It always starts with me doing something mundane, getting a foot spa, daydreaming of curtains, riding a train, then a tiny voice in my head will ask, “Why not now? What’s the difference if you’re going to have it forever anyway?” Two hours later, I have a colored open wound.
I once had Brazilian wax just because I saw a lay bare branch at MOA. It wasn't summer and I don’t even have a boyfriend then.
I have a habit of saying the wrong things at the right time, or vice versa.

Hyperactivity aka I’m restless 

I need to constantly occupy myself to treat my chronic boredom. The internal wiring of my brain is similar to tangled electric lines in manila. Messed up and fatal.
During a training assessment in Lanuza, I got bored working on my documentations so I decided to walk along the shores. I came back soaking wet, sporting an unfamiliar rashguard and archipelago of purple bruises on my knees—I had surfing lessons from local dudes I just met. 
Text conversations between David and me usually goes like this,
A: Lets (insert any random activity out of the blue i.e. eat greek cuisine, go diving, volunteer for nursery potting)!
D: But we just had (insert any previous activity i.e. tofu buffet, resident evil on 3D, week long backpacking)?

Distractibility aka I lose interest easily

I jump from one thing to the next like a rabbit on viagra. Even I can’t keep up with myself.
I have the attention span of a gold fish. 3 seconds tops.
I forget things—lighter, ipod charger, driver’s license, deadlines—even people.

***is it obvious that my sentences are getting shorter? Red Hot Chili Pepper's Under the Bridge is playing in my head btw. I don't ever wanna feel like I did that day take me to the place I love take me all the way...
