You've probably seen the #100 things challenge around. If not, well, where've you been??!? Here's my version. Not sure I did it right. I tell you, though... this was therapeutic!

Oh, It's COMPLETELY UNEDITED. So, read at your own risk ;)

**********************************************************

  1. Twenty minutes for a hundred things.... hmm...
  2. well this should be easy because they're just the sentences popping out of my mind.
  3. a black hole of useless and unceasing trivia and anxieties
  4. i have adhd, afterall... this should be easy.
  5. finally my time to shine.
  6. so what would i write about?
  7. well, how about we start with the most obvious question on my mind...
  8. how could i even hope to start the challenge when i never get twenty minutes to myself?
  9. i mean between the dogs and my husband, I can never find a minute to myself without constant interruptions.
  10. so thats the hardest part, but then again, it's only twenty minutes.
  11. quick, now.. . husband is asleep and the dogs are napping. could it be my opening?
  12. my mind reels with thoughts and possibilities.
  13. should i be extra clever and find the dusty stories that live on even dustier shelves of my subconscious just waiting to...
  14. ooh... only sixteen minutes left.
  15. wait. that means i did thirteen things in four minutes, right?
  16. but what's the math on that?
  17. here, pause the stopwatch feature and grab the calculator feature on the phone...
  18. wait... is that cheating? best not.
  19. oh crap, just debating over the timing took a whole minute!? Frick!
  20. and i've not even said anything worth saying yet
  21. bugger!
  22. Okay, so skip that and write the next thing that pops into your mind...
  23. squirrel!!! Jk Jk
  24. But actually that's how my mind works.
  25. Should i be ashamed that I still use that reference pretty much daily?
  26. Nah... I do have dogs, afterall, and it's so true.
  27. speaking of dogs.... they woke up.... best try to wrap this up before it's too late.
  28. oh man, my fingers are going numb on my right hand... it is getting harder to type
  29. damn, this is actaully kind of hard.
  30. oops. my phone just lit up... twelve minutes left. EEK
  31. okay but that's okay because i havent even unloaded the thoughts from mymind yet.
  32. sonofa! NOW myADHD wants to be silent!?
  33. figures. its not supposed to be a superpower, I suppose.
  34. but it often felt like one for me.
  35. Damn i keep typoing.
  36. its okay Ill fix it later
  37. wait...is that aganst the rules
  38. Guess I'll just leave them in here.

  52. lol that typo says tit
  53. oh man my brain
  54. i know the keyboard like the backs of my hands
  55. this should be easy
  56. speaking of the back of my hand... what strange saying that is
  57. i actually know the palms of mine better i think
  58. ya those lines are pieces of my history
  59. that scar from when my dog bit me
