Mind wandering, or Task Unrelated Thought.
The girl is sitting in the library and reading for her test in Psychology of Learning. Here is a little example of why the girl needs a bit more time than most people when she is studying.
"....Counterconditioning was proposed as..." - oh, that little spot of light was annoying- if I turn like this- ooooooo, sun fills the entire page of the book - wow, the white page reflects the sun - my face feel warm - but it's cold outside, I know that - maybe the Gym has a solarium - why DID I say to Siri that we should tan after exercise (that happened this summer) - maybe the sun would give more energy? - energy - I had energy in Namibia - hmm.. phobias (a subject that comes up in my text book) - maybe I should walk around with a Tarantulla in a cage everywhere I go, so every context will tell me that this creature is not dangerous? - haha The tarantula would get loose - Siri is so active - I wish I moved around more - I want to travel - I should start on my Harnas video soon - video assignment- maybe I'll make a video about narcolepsy - cute dogs that fall a sleep - YouTube - you find everything on youtube - ah, maybe they have video for dummies about this psych learning subjects - damn, what was I reading just now?"
"....three properties of occasion setters" (reads Settlers) - Settlers looks like a fun game - I can't believe I haven't played it before - Game night on thursday - yay - I need to buy snacks - hmm.. shopping - when - I have tests - why is the bio test 8:30 - I have to do an all nighter I guess - Night of the Living Dead - no - The Walking dead - rather good show - I'm surprised I like it - No more tv shows this week - or not until after my test - dinner - potato soup for dinner? - yeah - maybe an episode while I eat - I won't study anyway - I'm hungry - ouch - I've been biting my lip - study is not good for me - my nails are horrendous - will they be better until Saturday - why hasn't my costume arrived yet - internet shopping - I want that cheap Norrøna jacket - not cheap, but cheapER - Canada Goose is also cheaper - fur - Fur farms are disgusting - at least Canada Goose has some integrity - crap, I have to read more!"
.....checks facebook........continues reading.....
and yes, I could continue for a loooong time, but I actually have a test tomorrow and must use the time I have on reeeeally trying to focus.
