Lol, when people do stuff like that, it's not to waste time. P: It's to see what people say. I personally haven't... *puts on concerned elder hat* that's what time BETWEEN classes is for; class time is for doodling.

But I'm guessing you'd get comments from the teacher like "Put that ball away! Detention!" and the classic "Mr. Teacher, Bob's playing with his balls again. He said we can touch them if we don't believe they're real." from the teacher's pet. People tend to have the same sorts of reactions no matter where they see you doing it.

When I was in highschool I always carried more balls than books and I always used the balls more often (mainly toss juggling).

And no it wasn't for practice. It was show off!

And everybody loved it!

Yeah, that's the other thing... pisses me off when that happens. xD I would be stressed out, tearing my nails up, hyperventilating until I got it back. xD

Also, I don't trust all the little fools around to not take my stuff. *wags finger*

i bring my balls to lectures so i can palmspin in the boring ones and ive had some interesting incidents with tutors.

one used my balls to demonstrate something about the immune system , but i was too worried he would drop them to pay attention to what he was saying!

Another was intrigued, as he does qi-gong and tai-chi, and commented on how similar our movements were

Of course I cj at school! well, I did it between classes, and more often before my backpack threw off my balance. oh well. and when classes are really boring, I palmspin under the desk. it's funny to watch the teachers try not to be distracted by it. but by now all my teachers are used to me juggling in class. One of my old teachers actually said he missed having me in class, and I'd been juggling, and I dropped the ball, and he said he missed that too, lol.

cj at school was where i got most of my practice from. unfortunately, it also got people seeing me before i was any good, which makes them less amazed by it
