Are You ADDVenture Deficient?

In April this year, Suze informed me she had OA-ADD otherwise known as Onset Adult Adventure Deficient Disorder or OAADD for short – a self diagnosis upon recognition of the symptoms! What are the symptoms then, l hear you ask?

Well according to the book she was reading and danged if l can remember the title and now l have it packed up in box 3 under book box pile 6 and l cannot be bothered to unpack it But …. it goes a little like this ..

Fidgetty … are you a fidget in need of some action?

Goldfish Bowl Syndrome – aka – your attention span is next to nothing and you find yourself daydreaming a lot ……. l mean a lot!

OH!! I so need that and l need it now!! – Are you prone to impulsive behaviour – you see something and need it now??

Actual Age Inability! – Are you simply unable to act your age, whatever happens – are you too serious?

Boooooooooooooooooring!! Is life becoming too boring for you and you seek, fun and frolics?

In a nutshell and fancy wordery stupidities aside – are you in need of more fun, more adventures, more explorations, just more, more, more??

So tell me, are you currently deficient in the adventurous side of your life and if so what are you doing about it and if not, what adventures are you on then?

Let me know below in the comment section. Thanks Rory

  1. I think I answered it yesterday in your previous post. I am content to stay in one place most of the time. A couple f times a year I like to go on vacation, out of the city. To the sea or he mountains. The rest of the year, I feel restful.
    And yes I am very impulsive regarding doing things ! I buy in haste and repent at leisure.

  2. Well, in this crazy world, I am happy to stay put. I have put energy into going to more blogs and stretching my world in a safe way. In my younger days I enjoyed traveling and visiting new places. I am not very impulsive. I dislike change but I have learned so much during this time. I am starting to get back to my purging things that are not necessary for my happiness. I worked hard before retiring to have tons of things to do at home. So when/if I want to I have crafts and hobbies galore at my fingertips.

    1. Hey Lauren, a comprehensive answer indeed – yes l used to be very adventurous and it’s not that l am not these days, but like you l am now very cautious and not just because of a pandemic, my body is tired and achy and the energies l once had are expended quicker than before. Now l like to take things leisurely 🙂

  3. Every single day is an adventure, even if I never leave the house. Even if I were completely alone with no reading or TV or music… I can still have a fabulous adventure just in my mind.

    Some might say I’m impulsive if they see me jump into a public fountain for a splash, or run to the swings at a playground… I don’t think that’s impulsive, its playful. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I’m not an impulsive buyer. I’m not big on shopping just for fun. It’s not my idea of fun.

    I like the JRR Tolkien quote from LOTR about going out your front door and never knowing where you might end up.

    Bottom line… adventure is a mindset. A person can make anything into an adventure or be unfulfilled climbing Mt Everest.

    1. Absolutely agree on this …. l have lived an adventurous life and l write about my adventures and they are reality – when my creative mind kicks into action the world of imagination is a huge adventure ground just awaiting the gates to be unlocked 🙂

  4. I don’t like adventure and I am not living an adventurous life. When I was much younger I sometimes craved excitement, but those days are long gone. I keep my reality as safe and as routine as I can, which helps to flatten my anxiety level. In my imagination, like Angie, I go on various time travels and visit other places. Reading and writing are my main adventures!

  5. Nope…I would say that I’m ok with how my life is now! I do enjoy good vacations a few times per year but for the rest I’m happy with my routine 😉

  6. I’m mostly content with our little piece of earth. Especially in the summer when I can enjoy being outdoors, swimming, going barefoot and such.

  7. Right now, yeah I suppose?

    But I am adventurous always in life itself? So you just never know.

    But currently I am adulting and handling some very serious issues. I need focus, not distraction…

    I don’t really get bored? I do, but I also enjoy the peace of boredom ??

    I don’t like too much crowds or craziness. I stay away from that mostly. I just like my peace.

    I have never been a partier, and never really went out.

    I used to… before I was a mom and before I was of age… I used to get into clubs… they don’t care what age if you are pretty

    My girlfriends and I would just dance – we had a blast it was so much fun. Cherish those memories ❤️

    I have no desire for that now though.

    By adventure – it depends on what is adventure to you.

    If by adventure you mean… exploring or playing something or going somewhere, learning something … then yes full tilt adventure lol ✌️

    But if you mean … going out, drinking, partying whatever – nope I have no desire. Zero so I would be boring there.

    I am adventurous in “fun” areas – but again it is my perception on what is fun and what is adventurous lol ✌️

    1. I have come to expect nothing but a detailed answer from you Omatra – you cover all bases which is what l love about your answers – always informative and fun to read – thank you for the share of insight 🙂

      1. Hahaha, that would be my M.O.

        I DO write novels! Lol

        At least you are aware… when you see my name… you know you will get nice lengthy details 😄 … but it is interesting to see perspectives and I am compelled to add details lol ✌️

        I always say… don’t ask a question you don’t want an answer to lol … with me that’s because I will lay it all out for you lol ✌️

        But I only answer when I feel I have something to say. I don’t do all the time – just when I think I have something to say lol ✌️😄
