semtex: QUALITY! (QUALITY!)
Or: WTF Circadian Rhythms?

Most of my life, I have been a night owl. I figured it was hereditary, since my mom is the same way. In fact, I think she sleeps for four hours a night on average. The degree of insomnia I would experience would wax and wane, but in general, I wanted to go to bed as late as possible and sleep all morning. It interfered with my life when insomnia got really bad: going to bed at 3 am and shambling into work (usually a couple of minutes late) at 8:30 all disoriented. I was resentful and grumpy, and always kind of mocked THOSE MORNING PEOPLE. How dare they be productive at sparrowfart o' clock! For a while, my current job really enabled my broken sleep schedule because I could get away with coming in at like 10. Getting up in the morning was still an exercise in pain and scatterbrained frustration.

CUE A BUNCH OF BLATHERING ABOUT MY ROUGH LIFE AND MY SHIT SLEEPING HABITS )

Thanks, early morning sleeplessness! At least I get to leave work earlier! Now if I could figure out a way to be more productive before I go to work, that would be fabulous.

Or: My Thoughts On Adderall, Let Me Tell You Them

Yesterday, I was perusing the internet instead of working, like one does. I came across this article about someone's struggle with Adderall (and other pills) addiction, and it wasn't so much that the article itself gave me pause but it was the comments. Specifically, the comments that were all "OH MY GOD ADDERALL IS THE DEVIL IT IS A HORRIBLE DRUG" or "IT WILL WRECK YOUR LIFE!!" and well. Way to paint with a broad brush there, people.

MY TL;DR ABOUT THE DRUGS I TAKE TO FUNCTION LIKE A GROWN UP )

In b4 "NEVER READ THE COMMENTS"

PS: WOW two tl;dr posts in as many days. I'm sorry?? Maybe I'll talk about comics tomorrow?

*I stole this term shamelessly from Adventure Time, because it is perfect.
