Hello Everybody!

3 years, 4 months ago

Hi there. My names Greg, I’m from Rhode Island but live and go to school in Boston. The best place to start beyond that would be to disclose that I have pretty severe ADHD, and that definitely has a major impact on the way I live my life. I wake up every day and strive to learn something new, and like trying new things at every opportunity. My philosophy is that when I don’t know how I feel about something I’ll give it a try. Back in high school I broke my neck in a wrestling match, and I’ll admit I used to be kind of a bitter prick with a negative view on just about everything, but since then I’ve been much more at peace and laid back, and most people seem shocked when I describe what I used to be like. Its been a good change.

On any given day there’s no telling what I’ll end up doing, and I have quite a few stories that people probably wouldn’t believe if not for a knack for having witnesses. My favorite pastimes are reading and writing, mixed martial arts, surfing, playing guitar and ukelele, and meeting new people and having interesting conversations (not sure if that’s really a hobby but I quite enjoy it).

I do enjoy smoking (pot and hookah) and drinking quite a bit, but I recently decided I do both of these to excess almost unfailingly so I’m putting forth an effort to cut back considerably. Still love me some hookah though :)

Well, those are the highlights that come to mind. Like I said, I like meeting new people, so hello!

Welcome to the site man. Your favorite pastimes don’t really match up with your profile of having ADHD, haha. Very attentively demanding activities. Not a real medical condition anyway, I wouldn’t choose to identify myself with it if I were in your shoes.

@Dan Haha I think its overdiagnosed due to flawed methods/criteria of testing, but after 22 years I definitely believe it to be real (when they tested me in first grade I was doing math at a 5th grade level, reading at a 7th grade level, and unable to complete a connect the dots puzzle designed for a 3 year old). I’ll admit I sometimes use it as a cop-out (particularly in school) but either way I like it better than just identifying myself as being different.
