Hi! I wasn’t diagnosed until last December at age 32. When I read your list, I go:

Check

Check (though I didn’t leave, I just fell asleep. Embarrassing!)
Pass

And a number more for me.

When I was reading up on ADHD in the months leading up to my diagnosis, one of my counters (the other one being “but I was good in school!) was that I can follow instructions (one of the diagnostic criteria). Until I realized that I literally pretty much never actually read instructions/manuals.

Your list reads very typical for someone with ADHD. Good luck with your diagnosis!
