The Adderall Me
As i was reading this, I thought about how great it would be to take some Adderall with all the work I have coming up, but I don't think I could personally ever do it. You always hear about people who do take it, or people who have ADHD and should be taking it selling it to others who need to it write a paper. Its a pretty easy drug to get on a college campus. This 'crash' that your body feels afterwards is not something I would want to experience. Although the article stated that it is not highly addictive, it is still a drug so there is always that chance you could become addicted. Since this is a motivation class, I do not think you can be fully motivated if you are taking this drug. You may be more concentrated and willing to do work, as it says in the article "I feel less like myself." I feel like this is somewhat like cheating, since you aren't yourself when you take it. Regardless, it was way overused, especially in a college setting, and doesn't really seem to be this kind of 'miracle' drug that everyone think it is.
