I can't focus on one task unless it's physical. I have to switch between things (multiple windows, a book, writing things down with a pen, etc) or I just get bored. Lectures were a horrible way to learn (fortunately very few of my professors really expected us to learn much in a lecture--tests were their way of catching who wasn't doing the assigned reading out of class, by and large.)
What the hell is a Ninja Twizzle? Does it have anything to do with hard shelled aquatic life forms that live in the sewer?
