Resolved Question: WHERE DO I START? HOW DO I OVERCOME THIS?

I have always been slow-paced. I do suffer with depression and ADD. No matter how much coffee I consume or how fast I pace myself I tend to be moderately-slow. Only at rare times will I go super fast—but it’s to the point that I’m about to lose my sanity. I get stressed out easily in a fast-pace mode. The problem is that the field that I’m interested—culinary arts-restaurant is fast-paced. I am soon beginning a new job–dishwasher. The manager wants me to start as a dishwasher to see how fast I can work in that position and if I’m good…then he’ll consider me as a prep cook (something I wanna do). Will I ever reach that fast-level pace or not? Any job I’ve worked at…I always had a struggle with my pace. Another thing is that whenever people interview me they tend to think I’m super cool and fun…and I do have and carry that persona but it comes and goes as my moods change. I pretty much grew up unsocialized and closed-in…I struggle with being open and fun and being myself. Like, people want to be around me and all, but I really feel I got nothing to offer them and they’re just falsely hoping for something that isn’t there. I’m pretty boring (intellectual though), ignorant of alot of topics and bad listener. I have people at work who think I’m super cool and want to hear every word I got to say…but I hardly ever open up or say much lol. I guess the mysterious/quiet part of me keeps them interested lol. I don’t open up much with anyone only my family…everyone else knows nothing about my interests, life, past or hobbies. I don’t share much with people and I keep conversations on the surface.
