Zoning out

And when it doesn't immediately translate, I instinctively say, "what?" and then I realize before they repeat it that I actually did hear them the first time, I just needed to concentrate.
DEFINITELY not just you.

Random anecdote: I wear contacts, but on days that I forget to put them in, I've noticed that I don't make eye contact at all with people. It takes a ton of effort to do so. I'm not sure why...maybe since everything's blurry I don't feel like I'm getting any extra information by looking people in the eyes. I don't know.
I think that's an actual scientific thing to do with eyesight. Many children with undiagnosed eye problems are diagnosed with ADD or ADHD for this reason and similar, related problems. I believe that may have happened to me.

This isn't the hour of examining the prejudice and cast. This is the most touchy theme to talk about for the general public. Similarly, the bestessays review is so easy to use for our work quality. This badly affects the tranquility of the general public. You can see that this conversation takes this general public towards the fierceness.
