I have noticed that if I don't fidget with my fidget cube when sitting at my desk I will instead absent-mindedly start grabbing my foot and squeezing it completely without realizing

which is a bit bad because my foot has been on the ground and might be sweaty and otherwise gross, which also makes my hand gross

@amandag i usually start breaking whatever is on my desk (ive broken 2 lamps like this because i took out the springs, lost them, and even if i found them dont know where they go

@amandag I do this too but only the middle part that doesn't touch the ground
