all the world's a stage...

I'm a Computer Science undergraduate in my final year studying at Reading University. I like music, movies, photography, reading and if I can ever get around to it, writing. Also a fan of horror, sci-fi and fantasy so there's plenty of re/blogging on those areas.


I write gig/event reviews at From The Pit



Elsewhere on the web:

Flavors.me
Songkick

Or Ask Me Anything


Many tweaks to this and web presence in general in the pipeline... when I get around to it.

Problem: Experiencing a period of increased distractibility. Attention drifting to distant, or “exterior” sounds, like people talking downstairs.

Workaround: Institute a louder, closer source of sound that I can control. Got music playing and volume turned up.

Note: It seems rather hit and miss how various conditions are diagnosed because there’s so much overlap in diagnostic criteria of various neurodiverse states. It’s a wonder that anyone actually gets the right support they need. A very similar (or even identical) set of symptoms diagnosed one way warrants medication but diagnosed another way, the advice is to work on self-management.

I actually took an official diagnostic test for ADHD this week. I scored firmly in the middle of the “highly probable for ADHD” range of scores. However, all the issues I have (and have pretty much always had, but now outstripping my ability to cope with them, I think) with focus/ concentration/ attention/ organisation could also (perhaps additionally, rather than instead) be due to dyspraxia, aspergers and more recently ME.

*sigh*

Don’t wish me luck. Wish me ironclad focus.
