Monday, Funday?

Well bloggies, we find ourselves juntos another day, but not just any day, it's a glorified Monday! We all have to face them, more often than we might like, and we all struggle through them while day dreaming about the fun and adventure we experienced over the weekend, and what fun is to come in just a mere four days. 

ADD Drift: "juntos" = "together" in Spanish. Randomly placed Spanish words will find themselves into my sentences on a regular basis, and as such, you should expect to not only have some knowledge about myself dropped on ya, but also some Spanish vocabulario (vocab:).

But now let's get back on track, shall we? 

This Monday, is quite exceptional to others because it is the Monday leading us into HALLOWEEN WEEKEND! Halloween is a very special time in our lives... 

We grow up adoring it and celebrating it regularly, dressing up in any costume we desire (so long as it is deemed appropriate by our parentals), walking around collecting sweet little treasures from the neighbors, and spending the night looking at our loot upon returning to the homestead. 

Then we go through a phase where Halloween is something we all secretly, and sometimes not-so-secretly, want to celebrate and participate in, but society tells us we're "too old to trick-or-treat." These are generally the junior high and high school years, when your parties consist of the In-N-Out parking lot, parks, and anywhere else that the cops might not arrive at 15 minutes w/in yours. And finally, we hit the mother-load, COLLEGE! Here it is more than acceptable and entirely expected to be celebrated. The only differences are that we used to dress up like Disney Princesses, and now mom and dad aren't around to oversee our attire, and we used to collect candy, not shots and 4 outfits (because we all know that you REALLY need one per night-- sarcasm noted).

And while I have to keep in mind the massive Anthropology exam that I have on Wednesday, I also have to keep in mind that Escape From Wonderland is on Saturday, and I still have yet to determine my costume! 8O So for the next couple days I will memorize each of the 206 bones in the body, as I picture different things on mine!

TTFN love bugs, blog on!

Hello Friend :)

Well guys and gals, this is it! The moment has finally come for me to begin documenting the crazy, A.D.D. things that go on in my life, and inside my head. I should begin by welcoming you to A.D.D. Adventures with Allison. I hope you are ready, because things over here get WEIRD! 

I am Allison, Allison Clark Fedor to be exact. Remember this name, because on of these days, I plan to make it mean something! A little bit about me.. I am 22-years young, direction-less, and loving it! I use emoticons like it's my job, and love to write! I have been plagued with the need to travel and explore the world we live in, and cannot rest until I have done so. I took my 3rd year of university abroad in Bilbao, Spain, and since have been forced to live with the deep rooted hunger and thirst to travel and fill my life with as much international flair as possible. Self-diagnosed with bipolar disorder, that can be attributed to my extreme ADD, and complete lack of ability to commit, make a decision and stick with it, and horrid habit of blurting out my ever-changing opinions, feelings, and ideas about anything at a given time, entirely based off of my current mood.

My current situation is this: I am graduating in December as a marketing major, Spanish minor, and need to figure out my life! I am going to apply to go back to Spain as a teaching assistant, and refuse to believe that my future holds anything else. This blog is going to serve the purpose of tracking my life, and giving you the people an inside glance to the mind of someone who is ADD, and off their meds 8D

But for now new friends, I must leave you with this. The ladies of the F.A.T. House are going on a bike adventure through the park!
