Strange Habbits? - July 9th 2010, 07:47 AM

There's a reason I feel like I have a Neverland complex. Besides the fact I'm a little strange. Am I OCD?

I tap the toes of my shoes on the ground after I put them on.
I have a special dance I do every time I brush my teeth. EVERY time.
My tv volume always has to be on a 5, 0, or even number.
When given a decision between right and left, I always pick left.
I ALWAYS wrap the blankets around my neck when I sleep.
I ALWAYS eat the crust of my sandwiches first.

Do you guys have any weird habits that people sometimes make fun of?

Actually, come to think of it

The television thing is the same with me too

It always has to be an even number. Also, everything usually has to be equal, ie: if I put 10 jelly beans in one jar, there cant be 9 in the other

Re: Strange Habbits? - July 9th 2010, 04:57 PM

That's normal. Haha. I can't deal with things not ending in a 5, 0 or even number(like volume)

I have 3 remotes in my living room, and I ALWASY have to adjust them from tallest to smallest and make them perfectly straight.

When I put a hairband on(only the hard kind) I have to snap the part that goes behind my ear twice per side.

Before and after I eat or drink, I run my toung over my two chipped teath.

I have to rinse off my toothbrush AFTER I brush my teeth.


...Haha. Yeah, I'm weird, but aren't we all? :P

For me, I like things to be even. They have to be even.
I always have to have a couple of hair ties on my wrist. (:

By the time I am done brushing my teeth, I have drooled all over my whole toothbrush and the palm of my hand. It is then perfectly clear that I need to rinse the toothbrush. Apparently, when you brush your teeth, only the bristles touch your mouth/teeth, and no drool gets on the handle. Is that right?

Yes actually.

If I'm having a conversation with someone face to face or over the phone,
I've realilzed that everytime there is a silence, I reach for my chapstick in my pockets.

I do it without even realizing it.

At least I have healthy lips from it !!!

The tv thing is the same for me as well. I HATE odd numbers and everything has to be an even number for me. For instance, I always have to have an even amount of bracelets on or else I start feeling really panicky and just weird. I also tend to pick at the skin around my fingers and and chew on my lips and cheeks.


How cruel is the golden rule?

I'm the kind of kid
that can't let anything go
but you wouldn't know a good thing
if it came up and slit your throat...

I'm full of habits, but whats interesting is to think of why you do some of them. For example, I have concluded that I am afraid of losing things. I have to check my gas cap multiple times before leaving the gas station, I'm constantly checking for the usual things in my pockets (spectacles, testicles, wallet, and watch, lol), and I'll drive by the house a second time to make sure the animals won't get out if I left the gate open. Theres a lot of other odd habits, but these and a few others I think I've pinpointed the cause pretty well.

I freak out when the volume on the TV/radio is not at a multiple of five (5, 10, 15...), I do the Chapstick thing, I pick at the skin around my fingernails, I can't deal when I forget to cross the date off on my calendar, I crack every bone I can in the morning, and I always have to crush cans when I'm finished with them.

I rinse the tooth brush before I put on tooth paste and after I'm done.
I pick the skin off my fingers, toes, and sunburns.
I bite my nails.
I crack my knuckles.
I wring my hands.
I crack my back.
I sleep with my feet out from under the blankets.
yep I'm weird


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Re: Strange Habbits? - July 13th 2010, 10:26 PM

I eat the toppings off my pizza befor i eat the bread...
I bite my fingernails all throughout movies ect.
When i make cupcakes, the colors of the little papr things have to make a pattern in the pan.
I have to clean everything really thoroughly... like i can't deal with not dusting something, if i've dusted the rest of the house.
When I'm interested in a subject, I will get 20 books on it to make sure I didn't miss anything.
I am also addicted to chapstick...
I can never take normal sized sips of soft drinks... I take super small ones so I don't get a lot of extra calories.
I put my chocolate bars in the microwave...
and lots of other weird stuff...

I have OCD though so I can't really put some of my habits cuz i have too many lol

- i wear my bracelets in a certain order. if one is out of place; i HAVE to fix it.

- my ipod is always in my left front pocket
- i always cross the same streets on my way to school [there are different ways to get to the bus stop i go to]

Wow, I always eat the crusts first...to get to the soft middle heehee.
I also have weird habits like:
I have to smell my shoes before putting them on, and after taking them off, and my socks to make sure they don't smell. If they smell like stinky feet, I spray perfume in it so stop it from stinking for awhile.
I always have to have everything in an even order. I always have to have everything exactly perfect in order and clean and tidy looking. It's a habit cause I constantly make sure everything is aligned perfectly, it's sad haha.
I'm always making sure my windows are closed completely and nothing is stuck on my feet when I go to bed.
I sometimes have to check plug-ins, to make sure everything is pushed all the way in.
I like even numbers instead of uneven ones.

Whenever I look into a mirror, the first thing I do is in my mind, I always draw myself as a stick figure depends on how i look that day.

it's weird, but i do it.
i love stick figures.
