    Exceptional. I can watch TV, scroll through my phone and converse with my family while eating. :blobpeek:

    I can talk to people on 3 or 4 different platforms, work on at least 3 different assignments, read 2 different stories, eat food (also, by not touching it and getting my keyboard messy), and listen to music without being too distracted by it to get up and dance.
    So I think I'm pretty good at it~

    Depends on what the subject at hand is. If it's an assignment I usually need to put down my phone since I tend to procrastinate. But overall, not really haha.

    I always like to think I'm good at multitasking, but have to go back 10 minutes in the podcast/video I'm listening to rn while playing on my phone all the time bc I'm actually not good at multitasking at all :blobtired:

    Oh, I cry for about 5 minutes after sending something meant for someone else to someone I don't really know though.
    Or accidentally copy and pasting something meant for a [raunchy] friend onto my work and then turning in said work to the teacher.

    Sometimes I mess up big time. There's pros and cons of multi-tasking.

    I'm ashamed to say I sent TOO many things to my guardian/sister meant for my S/O
    WAY too many. She yelled at me most the times too. It was beyond embarrassing.

    edit: S/O means significant other for those new to the uhhhhh abbreviation?

    S/o means significant other, that's something I learned today. Also mind telling what you were feeling when you realized that you sent those things to your guardian/sister?

    I'm terrible I can only do one task at a time. Example, if I do something important, I can't listen to music because I lose focus. Or I'm doing an activity and they talk to me and I can't do both at the same time since I don't pay attention to the person or I do the activity wrong.

    Embarrassment. Shame. Shock. Ridiculed. Frustrated. And pain. Metaphorically and literally, she beat me with her flip flops again, as she always does when upset with me.

    I feel like I should sympathize. What's confusing me is whether I should sympathize with you or your sister:sweating_profusely:

    Both.

    Probably my sister more though. She hasn't been able to look me in the eye for longer than 9 seconds. It's been about 3 months now.

    I can multi-task on tons of trivial activities that don't demand much attention easily. Like, playing a gacha, talking on discord and playing a brainded game at the same time is trivial.

    On the other hand, I'm totally unable to do anything together with something else that requires attention. Like... Can't even work while listening to music. Also can't talk to my boyfriend on discord while talking to my brother IRL.
