*clears throat* Hi, everyone. :D *scratches head in confusion* I don't really know what to say.

Anyway, I think I have ADD. But I'm not sure. No one thinks I have it.
I don't remember when it started. I guess since I was in elementary school. I don't remember when I was in first, second, or third grade (barely). :P So I guess for as long as I CAN remember.

~I always space out in class (even when I don't want to). This is because the subject is BORING, the teacher is BORING, or they keep rambling. Sometimes, just because I do. Even when I'm reading something INTERESTING.
~At home, I "don't listen". I hear the first part, then..."What?" (That's me.)
~Whenever I'm taking a quiz and something comes up, I can't continue until I'm done talking about it/whatever it is stops. (For instance, I was taking a quiz in math today, and an announcement came on. I was like, "Continue the test!" Then I got distracted. Though I didn't say anything.)
~I get distracted. A lot.
~I can't take 20 questions in math at once. I start getting confused and bored and everything starts being wrong.
~I don't go over my work. (If that's even a symptom.)
~I don't like reading long paragraphs of things, unless (a) it's interesting, or (b) it has bullets or lots of enter spaces. (If you get what I mean).

That was an enter space, by the way.

Distracted! XP

~I can't remember the full school day. If I don't write my math bookwork down (if I have it for homework), I'll forget it. And math is right before I leave...

Okay. Sooo...yeah?

I don't know what the other symptoms of ADD. If that's even what they are, above the enter spaces.

I'm 12. (Don't stalk me!!! :( )
