tuning out

it's strange, isn't it?
you're in a boring class. teacher droning on about things you don't care about.
but you try to pay attention for the sake of your grades.
your brain is struggling to make sense of the words
in one ear and out the other
you're slowly, slowly,...
no!
you jerk back to reality just in time.
phew
okay, im paying attention
im listening, listening...

next thing you know, you just missed half the lesson.
and you don't remember anything from before.
shoot!
you don't even remember tuning out.
ugh.
 
based on personal experience...

    I understand this so much. I'm homeschooled so I get to learn by reading textbooks, but whenever I have to be in a classroom setting for something I find it sooooo boring.
