January 11: Mania

Like a superball, the kind you get get from a gumball machine, I've bounced around from task to thought to project, aimless and out of control. Stimulation from out of the ordinary experiences and other people's anxiety have left my high as the day comes to a close. An e-mail from a colleague, phone ringing, anxious colleague who needs a 30-page document proofed today, program director unhappy with formatting changes in a document, new students with questions, prospective students wanting to apply to start in 10 days. Little was accomplished. I can't focus.

I have ADHD, so I know all about not being able to concentrate and bouncing aorund! Good luck with that.

If I can force mytself to start on something (not easy), then I can hyperfocus and get a lot done.

I like you idea of writing every day. I used to do that regularly, but I'm working on a novel right now and all my energy is going into that.
