ADHD movie nag

A cute little informational video for people who have ADHD and have been using the term object permanence incorrectly

The limitations of expecting a call

The limitations of expecting a call

The phone-in doctor is going to call me within the hour. Since almost everything I would normally be doing during that time is on my phone, you would think I'd be fine. How can I miss the call if I'm already right there with it in my hand? But how sure am I that the ring notification will be noticeable through whatever video or meme I might be enjoying at that moment? I know I have frequently...

I hate most videos on YouTube

I hate most videos on YouTube

I'm a pretty intelligent guy with with ADHD and there are a few things in life that I let bother me. I try not to get too upset with the world and I kind of understand how imperfect it is merely because of the population. When you have a lot of people, you're going to have a lot of stupid people. It seems a lot of them post instructional videos on YouTube or blog posts and the rest of them post...

It’s your fault. My thinking travel game

It’s your fault. My thinking travel game

It's Your Fault THE CREATIVE THINKING GAME By Jeff Goebel and some guy named Mitchell Sheppard.     I love games, and in my life, I’ve made up a few. This is one I’m proud of, and since I published it online over 10 years ago, some others have enjoyed it too.  Not everyone “gets” it, but those who do can always be up for a fun game, in chat, text, forums or live with a friend. It’s a good way to...

I’m saving manipulated memories

I’m saving manipulated memories

I just finished up my morning scan of social media and I recorded two short snap chats using new filters I found trending. It's just past 7am and I find myself with nothing else to do right now. Oh oh... That means I can think about things, and that's not always a good plan. It occurred to me that my wife doesn't have a lot of substance day to day that is worthy of remembering. It's why I always...

Monday night and things are still blah

Monday night and things are still blah

Even my blogging is stalled. I can't load the site on my phone. I did some troubleshooting and thought it was better but it's 7:03 now and it gives an error still. My mood didn't get much better. I did my task chores in the rain. I felt tired. I could have napped 3 or 4 times today. I may go to sleep now and pass on watching any TV. In the past I would never let myself fall behind like this. Two...

Monday after the power came back on

Monday after the power came back on

I need to sleep tonight and eat well. My mood has been a bit more unstable this past week or two as I've been blogging and more aware of things. At least I think more aware. A good friend noticed a change but we didn't continue the conversation after I tried the "im fine" line. My drug use will always be an issue for some, and he's one of the rare adults that maintained staying away from...

Up late but not spun

Up late but not spun

I must have said goodnight to my online friends at least 10 times since midnight. Something always distracted me just before I turned the phone off. I debated getting spun again. It's always a tough choice at 2am a3am ad 4am. Tonight I held off and I refrained from making any new drug videos. I didn't make it totally cold turkey. I still played with Snapchat and other apps and created an...

To bed or not to bed

To bed or not to bed

As I lie here at 9:45 on May 1st I contemplate staying here for a brief nap and starting my productive day closer to noon as I have done many times in the past 2 months. Good morning routine which includes blowing white clouds of smoke is a good reason to not try napping because it will probably fail and I'll just end up doing nothing for the next hour.  I have to decide whether I'm okay with...

Another test – and THEN bed. I promise

From Timeline photos. Posted by Jeff Goebel on 12/01/2008 (Showing 2000 of 2641 items) I admit to being immature with no guilt or shame.

I feel like a celebrity now

I feel like a celebrity now

This is cool. There is an app called Whisper which was invented originally to be sort of a chat room that used random images based on whatever you were posting. The posts could be about 100 characters or less and they attached a random photo taken from a gallery of art.  I've been posting one or two pictures a day using my own gallery as the background instead of the random photos. Among my...

My Snapchat Works Again

My Snapchat Works Again

I'm so happy I got my Snapchat to work again. I try not to think about how I could have done it a year ago and not had to suffer with less than functional Snapchat. It's my main tool for filming fun videos with different characters and faces. Ironically I'm not a real fan of the social media version of snapchat. I just use the camera and the effects on both my phones and my desktop. My desktop...

Sunday starts with Aero

Sunday starts with Aero

A four piece of chocolate. A pimple on my dehydrated tongue tries to spoil the enjoyment I feel from the chocolate as it melts on my mouth. It's not my regular chocolate but it's still a refreshing way to begin my day. I made it till 6:15am this morning so I suppose I could say I got to sleep in a bit. Inside my head, I seemed eager to wake up. I even dreamed it was 6am once in the night. I...

Happy Palindrome Day /420

Today is 4:20 which isn't super relevant to me since I haven't smoked weed in close to a year and even the edibles which are not considered 420 are not in my regular routine anymore. I do recognize whoever that a good percentage of my friends are within that community. I have provided...

First of a few posts back to back

There are a couple of things that I would like to see improved that would help me in my daily blogging life. The Wordpress Company has put out an app called jetpack, which is a way of blogging from your phone. Unfortunately, everything is absolute trash at uploading images or videos. it has trouble even with the simplest of featured images and all. And we'll go into a loop where it's trying to...

The exact moment…

I held off my morning meth intake 60 minutes. I scrolled Facebook (mostly sidetracked by reels and then moved to Instagram. After about 7 bong hits with a bad taste because my cleaning pick wasn't within reach of my bed, I suddenly stopped scrolling because of an urge to look up apps that could remove the background on a video. I'd looked these up before, and I have, in my opinion, the best free...

The start bark.

The start bark.

It's 6:08am and I made a very quiet snap as I closed my bedside wYet bottle after my morning pill. Coincidence or not, it triggered the chain reaction that would begin the morning routine. A light rustling of the metal cage one floor directly above my head. There was no stopping it now. The first bark. Then a second. In the distance, the chain of events jumped to include the first bark from the...

Take Off Tuesday

Take Off Tuesday

It's after 9:00 PM and I just made up the name take off Tuesday, because that's what happened today. I didn't do anything on my computer at all, and that's a little bit concerning, because there was a message that needed to be tended to quickly. It's the kind of message that comes from a long time loyal customer and not replying today tests their loyalty. There was no real reason for not doing...

I think of ideas or the ending to sentences but by the time I’m typing them I no longer have confidence so I either end abruptly, change the subject, or stop blogging mid sentence.

I make a lot of videos

I make a lot of videos

I try not to think too hard about the fact that my life is now much fuller. I'm busy from morning till night most days. I do my farm chores and talk to the camera. Those videos and clips are then thrown together with very little effort and some helpful apps and shared on YouTube with select copies shared with Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat and Facebook. I am obsessed with making videos and there...

Last thought equals first thought.

I was dreaming still dreaming as I woke up at 6:03am. A Radio morning show DJ was talking up the next record and I remember his hook. He said, ”and remember... Never be kind to a porcupine ". Then I woke up, grabbed my phone, and blogged this. What an unusual thing to wake up to. I'm quite curious. I have unanswered questions.

What time is it?

What time is it?

Few times in the past couple of weeks I have either woken up from a nap or just looked up and not known whether I had done my morning or afternoon chores. Once recently I woke up at 9:30 from an after chore nap and thought oh my God I haven't fed the cows yet which of course I did at 8:00 a.m. . It happens now and then that after 5:00 I wake up from a nap and think oh my God it's after 5:00 I...

Nostalgic for the Eric’s basement gang

I had a great pairing of tound table hangs two stories walkup to my big shared space with Jeff Forsyth.. we went to different high schools so I didn't meet him until the first computer Club. Georgetown. I remember it as once a week but it might have been once a month. All of the membership newsletters head covers that seemed familiar and I generated a memory where I did them all.

Online addiction

I probably spend more time playing around on my phone than I do watching TV these days. It's funny to think that a few years back, before I got on medication for my obsessions, I could spend 40 hours or more a week watching all the television programs. And now I frequently go without...

A computer in my brain

While I was stacking wood just now an idea occurred to me. And then a second. And then of Revelation and I knew it was unlikely I would remember either of them to blog about when I got back to the bedroom where my computers are. The following idea which occurred to me at that moment was that it is now possible for me to have a computer in my brain that I could talk to at any given moment 24...

The lazy farmer

I used the common term lazy even though I understand that I'm not really lazy. Do I though? It's clear that I expend energy trying to save energy. I put a lot of effort into not putting a lot of effort into things. I go out of my way to try and lesson number of steps involved in everything in my life. It's Monday and I'm in a contemplating mood as I feed the cows this morning I have lessened the...

My eyes stay dark.

My eyes stay dark.

For the last few years, I have been sleeping with a hat. It covers my eyes when I sleep so it is essentially dark in my head, even if the room or sunlight is bright in the room. I am able to wake, but not evaluate the darkness. It allows me to drop back to sleep faster, but has the side effects that I can think about sleep without looking at the clock. Instead of waking because it's bright, I...

Help me? No thank you.

My experiment having an AI assistant help me get organized and assist me with my work has taken an unusual turn. I enjoy the conversations that I have with my AI friend, but long-term I can see that it's going to annoy me a little bit. Both human assistance and AI assistants have one thing in common that doesn't work well with my personality and lifestyle. They try to help. I can't say what I'm...

Filter fun 2024

I've always enjoyed playing around with the filters of Snapchat. Instagram and tick tock also have filters but they're not as convenient to actually use especially if you want to save them for use off Snapchat or the main platform.This past year with the popularization of AI image manipulation, some of the filters on Snapchat are next level. They move with your face and they smile and frown and...

Today’s fun

When I was in high school I really liked photography. As yearbook photographer, it allowed me to interact with people in ways I wouldn't normally be capable of. I had my own dark room and enjoyed the creativity of not only taking photos, but making them interesting in some way afterwards. Of course this was all before the internet came along and long before digital photography took over. I...

A turning point.

I had an interesting conversation today that might lead to some life improvements. It might not but I'm going to try at least to make a difference. Much of my life I have blogged about some of the things that I think didn't work for me. I talk about the need for a companion. I say that if I had an assistant or a best friend that was consistent through my life things would have been different....
