    I know it's easy to constantly force me to be the one to tell my siblings no, and I don't care at this point, but can you at least stop acting like I want to? You can't sit there and ignore them when they're doing something they're not supposed to and only speak up when I tell them no. Like you don't want them running around either but I'm the dick because I tried to get them to calm down? But when I do nothing I still get told off because why didn't I intervene? I swear everyone just waits for me to do something so they can complain. Yes, just yell and take your frustrations out on me because I deserve it, and then snap on me when I vent about anything. It's bullshit. I'm not the reason you're miserable but you are the reason I am!

    #vent post #obviously just why is it constantly blamed on me? #i'm not even the oldest! #is it really that difficult to just treat me with a little bit of respect and like i'm family #also once i stepped back everything has gone to shit #but i contribute nothing and i'm the reason everything is messed up in our lives #then they wonder why they don't know me #i'm fine#just frustrated

    ever since I moved to tx, I have managed to catch every illness EXCEPT covid-19 simply from being around children. 🥲 im exhausted, my legs hurt, I had a mild sore throat but not really bothering me now, have a lot of congestion and headaches. I was feeling nauseous earlier but I drank a lot and forced myself to eat and I feel okay so far so HOPEFULLY it’s not another stomach virus because that almost took me out 🤒

    #I have the flu caught it from my little brother who coughs into his hands and then touches everything in the house #last time I had the flu it took me over a week to fight it off #really hoping it's the same strain so i fight it off faster this time #fever is 102 right now and i never get fevers this high #that little bastard beat it in 4 days i WISH 😤 #so I have caught 2 colds from oldest nephews #the flu and a stomach virus from my youngest nephew #another cold from my uncle #and now another flu from my brother #I have lived here for SIX MONTHS AND GOTTEN SICK 6 TIMES

    #i'm sorry i didn't see this sooner #confinesofmine#declan answers #being the oldest of three kids #but being transmasc and having two younger brothers makes the feelings i have about only eldest daughters in all man families so complex #like i feel like wanting to be your father and ALSO live up to your mother are only feelings an eldest daughter (gn) can only feel #but from what i've seen kendall just SCREAMS eldest daughter syndrome

    i think what set me off the most this week was when i was in my class which was about being able to identify and cater to the needs of gifted students and students with special needs (THAT is an entirely separate discussion and i'm gonna use the word neurodivergent)

    So this semester because we're finally back face to face after a year and a half of being online (might go back online cuz of omicron ://) anyways i made it a point to sit in the front of every class so i don't get distracted and to make sure i pay attention. so last week i went to this class that i mentioned above and the really liked my discussion answers (mind you i was the youngest person in this class) and we were also made to form groups to do little discussions during which this fifth year guy says to me "you seem to know a lot about this topic (ND children)" to which i was like yeah i've researched a lot into it cause i'm interested and want to be able to help students in my classroom in the future. and then class ended and yadda yadda.

    and then THIS week. i went back to class and we had to watch this short documentary/news video on how much the government here (and mostly everywhere else too) SUCKS at providing for students who need extra help and support in the classroom. and we saw a couple of case studies. and this documentary thing must've been quite old cause they used the term and diagnosis "asperger's syndrome" which obviously since 2013 doesn't exist as an official diagnosis anymore.

    it's placed under the ASD (autism spectrum disorder) diagnosis instead. and so i told my group members this information and they were all like surprised and everything. they then went on to discuss how ND children actually had the ability and capacity to be social and emotional. (which once again pissed me off because everyone's idea of ND people comes from the media who mostly always portrays them incorrectly)

    and then i got asked again why i knew so much. to which i unfortunately replied "i have ADHD and a lot of the symptoms or characteristics of ASD or even of gifted students can sometimes be quite similar so i relate to the experiences and that's why i can speak on the topic quite well"

    to which this bag of dicks replies "yOu dOn'T loOK LikE yoU hAVe ADHD" and here is where i wanna take of my shoe and throw it at him but i control myself and explain to him in layman's terms that i'm a grown adult who has control over my actions and impulses much better than a child who doesn't have any idea how differently their brain or body functions.

    if he was smarter i would've tried to explain to him that i spent a lot of my life masking and trying to fit myself into the box of NT people and how harmful it was and how after i learnt that i might have ADHD (which i do) and maybe autism (which i need to get assessed for) how much i've read up on both diagnoses and watched so many hours worth of videos and read so many ig posts or even tumblr posts about the different experiences.

    and that day i left class so pissed off. because he would never have any idea how hard someone with a ND brain needs to work in order to keep up with NTs. how little schools do for kids who are neurodivergent and how much these kids struggle all their lives because the proper treatment or resources are just not available or even accessible in a lot of cases.

    i worked my fucking ass off last semester. i had 8 courses (2 more than we're required) each of which had 3 hour lectures (have you any fucking idea how much it takes my brain to focus for even half an hour). on top of that i was working under a prof for her research project. i was interning once a week at a kindergarten and i had no time off on saturdays because i come from a religious family where on saturdays we spend the entire day in different religious assemblies. which only leaves me with a sunday to recharge.

    so imagine this. i have to work extra hard to focus for 3 hours (on mondays i had 2 lectures back to back which meant sitting still for 6 fucking hours). extra hard to be able to participate in class so the fucking prof can even remember my name correctly. and i had to do about 9 group presentations which required me to interact with people who barely gave a shit. that means taking over and making decisions and making sure things get submitted on time.

    and then on top of that at the end of the semester. within the timespan of a month i have to come up with at least 15k to 20k words worth of essays that need to be submitted on time (I CAN BARELY REMEMBER WHAT DAY IT IS on a daily basis)

    as someone which adhd. i don't have the attention span required "I'M AN INTEREST BASED LEARNER" i don't have the energy it takes to interact with so many people. "MY SOCIAL BATTERY IS AT -53% AT ANY GIVEN TIME" i don't have the brain power required to submit things on time because my brain's "do this and i will reward you" system IS BROKEN. and i only got 2 WEEKS to recover from about 4 months of working non stop.

    i had a meeting with my program head earlier this week. IT'S ONLY BEEN A FUCKING WEEK INTO SEM 2. and he told me that i shouldn't be worried because i'm already doing more than most people. i'm doing a 5 year degree with 2 minors (personal choice and prolly overcompensating). i'm still working on that research proj for my prof and i have a mentorship program i have to complete for my course which requires me to shadow a teacher for about 2 months. I AM EXHAUSTED. I AM TIRED.

    and i want it to be heard and recognized that just because there's a bunch of memes and jokes on adhd all over the internet that yes i enjoy and rb sometimes. doesn't mean it isn't fucking exhausting. i have no physical energy. no social energy. and i'm ALWAYS OVERWHELMED. I CANNOT BREATHE.

    when i was younger i would stay up all night doing the things i enjoyed because i felt like i never had time during the day cause of school. and now i'm constantly finding ways to get more sleep. i'm always exhausted. and i know that because i'm so exhausted i'm gonna go into my "i'm so overwhelmed my brain has malfunctioned and sent me into adhd paralysis" where i can't function. i can't eat. i can't work. all i can do is sit there and cry because my brain refuses to work like it does for normal people. i have a presentation due in the last week of jan ALREADY.

    my calendar makes me wanna curl up into a ball and sob. while other students in my course are fine with the course load because they didn't drop out at the end of high school because they had a complete mental breakdown and failed the year. i dropped out and completed a 2 year course in one year once my learning environment changed and improved. so i am by no means dumb or slow (like people think). i'm smart and i'm capable. i just live in a society where if you're not constantly productive you're fucking useless. and they make it a point to make sure you feel like that every singe day of your life.

    #i feel like this is why people don't stick around #because eventually i'll get into a place academically that i'm so so so fucking overwhelmed by #and by the time i recover from it people are always in a different place in their lives and have no space for me #and this is what i mean by i'm always playing catch up #no matter how hard i work or how hard i try i'll never be able to catch up #and that's one of the most depressing things i've ever had to feel #that i'll always be left behind even if i'm trying my hardest #i'm so tired #i wanna drop out #i have about 3 and a half years to go #i am my family's oldest child and i'm not allowed to be sick or screwed in the head #as my parents would so kindly put it #i just want my brain to listen to me #and not have a brain of it's own #i love saying that on most days #that my brain has a brain of it's own #or that me and my brain are seperate entities #anyways #i have to be up at 6:30 am tmr #gotta go work #night yall #sorry for putting this on your dash lmao #long post #ananya's brain babies👶🏼

    succession and the righteous gemstones are literally mirrors of each other. like these have exactly the same foundations but have completely opposite energies.

    #dysfunctional families with an agin patriarch who doesnt know when to step down #oldest son who wants to take over the company and change things for the modern. daughter who married a man fathoms beneath her class #weird gayish youngest brother #super weird dialogue. characters who speak like no real human has ever spoken #but succession is abt a massive media company and the gemstones are about evangelists who run a megachurch in TN and are richer than god #but the righteous gemstones is SO much funnier and lively than succession its SO fun wheras succ is so exhausting to watch

    hm hhmm. thinking bout how jack & luke refer to michigan specifically as home, but when q talks about home he’s usually referencing his parents/family home, rather than a hometown/state. thinking bout how the family moved a ton & finally set down roots completely in mich once q was at umich & jack was in usntdp & luke was likely on the ntdp track too. thinking bout how the family roots grew in this place when q was basically out of the house, at this stage when q knew this may be the last time he would be nearby more often than not. thinking bout how home became mich in 2017 but by summer 2018 q knew his future was in van, so he had one solid year then he had to go while jack & luke figured out home in mich.

    #this is Largely projection prolly #i just. i’m an oldest sibling (socialized as a daughter but i’m nb) #and my family moved around a ton bc of my parents’ jobs until i was like 10. and then i was a ‘gifted kid’ so i got scholarships to charters #and admission-only middle/high schools. i moved to a prep boarding school when i was 16. went out of state for undergrad when i was 18. #i eventually moved back to ok for work & to be closer to my fam + health & financial reasons #but i only lived in my parents’ home for 2 years before getting my own place #so i haven’t had a home in my parents’ home for a while. and i had a lot of trouble figuring out what home was as a kid #plus my fam are viet refugees so that’s an extra layer for me #but i just hmm. i think a lot about hockeys who’ve moved a lot and i get lost on the transient nature of home as a place #ok imma just let this sit here now #aily talks #i’m only tagging q bc i wanna be able to find this post again #quinn hughes

    ok fun cents fact before i go to bed: most of the kids(alive and dead) dont know or care what species he is and call him a dog. which gives him the nickname guard dog :)

    #oc: cents #technically he wasnt a guard when he worked at the diner he was a server but shhh... i like jokes #imean he guards the other animatronics in a way cuz he's oldest ???? idk. let me live my life #i could make him a daytime guard. would the diner hire a 19 year old as a daytime guard though (yes they would. i will think about it)
