MY BRAIN 2017-07-13T00:49:05+00:00

Yo, so look…

My brain is pretty weird. Early on in grade school, I went to visit some doctors because I was doing so poorly in school. They ran a bunch of tests and eventually diagnosed me with Dysnomia (Anomic Aphasia), Dyscalculia, and Dyslexia. Basically, I have really terrible short term memory loss and pretty much have ADHD (I haven’t been diagnosed with that yet doe, hehe).

My brain is random, it thinks randomly, I come up with random ideas, I randomly remember things I had forgotten prior, etc… So this page will be random like that. It is filled with a few things I’m thinking of at the moment. I will update it from time to time. I hope you look through it and find something new to follow.

Enjoy.
