Creatures of Habit

So we all have set habits and compulsions that we do every day. Some can be harmless, like touchign the roof of your car when you pass a yellow light or always having a 20 ounce coffee to start your morning. Or it can be a little gross and somewhat harmful, like smoking or nail-biting. (i do all those, which I need to change probably)

While watching a bit of Obsessed on A&E and thinking about the OCD episode of True Life, I thank my lucky stars i'm not obsessive-compulsive like those on the show, who kinda have their lives run by their habits and all.

There's also everyday routines that we all find ourselves in, like I always start the day with coffee and a cup of chobani yogurt with kashi bits. I figured i'd change it up, but its been like 3 months and i've had the same breakfast pretty much everyday, and i'm still not bored of it.

So yeah dudes, what habits do you have that you've noticed? Trying to change? Does it bother you or people you know? Any particular everyday routines you find yourself falling into?

    i have a few:

    i routinely count words or syllables in what i say

    tv volume has to be on even numbers, or mulitples of 5

    i bite my pinky nail only

    i have a routine of cracking my fingers, wrists, neck, elbows, knees, and back in the morning

    my shower always has the same routine: scrub face, shave, brush teeth, wash body, wash hair. anything outside of that routine is weird

    things either need to be lined in some sort of uniform fashion or completely random, not a little bit of both

    i have more...

    I'm constantly planning escape plans for whatever situation I'm in, in case heavily armed mercenaries/terrorists storm in and try to kill me.

    Like i'm in a club dancing and everyone is happy and smiley where as i'm kinda frowning and casing the place for escape routes whilst dancing badly.

    Don't judge me, you all do it too.

    I ready myself to "counter" spontaneous stabbings from people I pass by or who are near me in stores or movie theatres or whatever. Not all the time, but when I think of it. Always with hobos though.

    You all laugh, but when that one rare occasion finally does happen?


    I will probably get stabbed.

    when I turn off the lights in the house to go to bed (so it is very dark) I run my middle and index finger of my right hand down the hallway wall for 3 seconds until I reach the bathroom doorway, take a step across the hall to my room, then grab my bedroom's doorway and touch the doorknob with my left hand. then I take 5 steps to my bed's ladder, grab the top of the ladder with my left hand. right knee up on the mattress, then get cozy.

    the same thing every night for years now.

    also when I am the passenger in a car my eyes follow the curb and dip down for driveways. I also count things, blinking for each count. sometimes mailboxes, or blue cars, often trees.

    Same. Top to bottom. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, rinse it all off. Same way, every day.

    I wouldn't consider myself to be OCD, but I do have strict routines. I try to do everything in as optimal a way as possible in order to save time and energy, from setting my clothes out the night before to putting my rail pass in my wallet a specific way so that it's easier to swipe through the reader when I get on the subway. I strive to live life deliberately.

    I always have to go a bit differently.

    Shampoo hair, rinse, conditioner hair and leave it in while I wash my body, shave, wash my face, then rinse with warm water, then as cold as I can stand. (it's good for your hair)

    My morning showers need to be quick. I do shampoo hair, then soap down body by working my way down, then face wash. Leave the serious rinsing for the end. That means my showers take like 3 minutes, which some people have told me is too fast and possibly gross, but whatevs. Showers in the afternoon or evening after a workout or sweating all day is just me with the water running for 20 minutes, then leisurely do the hair, body, face thang. Maybe throw in a quick whacking section for variety

    I've never understood how people are comfortable jerking it in a shower stall or tub that's shared with other people. I mean, I find another dude's semen just as objectionable as peepee, and you certainly wouldn't expel that in the shower! Or maybe you would?!

    I habitually sit at the computer like a fucking idiot. I can't ever sit with my feet flat, I always have one knee up or I'll rest my bent leg on the arm of the chair, and then I wonder why I have chronic calf pain in that leg. I wish I could sit normal but doing so makes me want to crawl out of my skin.

    Oddly, this is not a problem anywhere else. Just my computer chair.

    this, this. right now my left feet is curled with my tops of my toes pushed down against the tiles, while my right leg is underneath me on the chair. can't ever sit just... normal.

    similiar problem in bed, so when i was in the hospital a few weeks ago, they expected me to just lie flat on my back all night and not move, or the drip would come out. that was mental torture, like, absolute anxiety. can't explain it, but i just...couldn't. needless to say, the drip came out painfully, a lot, and was replaced, a lot. I NEED TO MOVE DAMNIT.

    I'm a creature of habit -- not so much because I like routines, but because I'm extremely forgetful, and I need to streamline practicalities to the point that I don't have to think about them.

    For example, I have to have exactly one purse that always contains all my things, and I have to take it every time I leave the house/dorm room, otherwise I'll forget my keys. I avoid accessories that can be put on and taken off in the course of a day -- bracelets, sunglasses, etc -- because I'll lose them. I like to go to the gym already wearing my gym clothes (instead of changing in the locker room) because I'm bound to leave something in the locker room. I always pack light on trips, to minimize the number of things I need to remember. And so on.

    I can be kind of rigid about this sort of thing, because I have a rough sense of how many details I can keep in my mind at once, and it's not very many.

    I write about math here:

    the more you try to avoid germs, the more likely you are to die from curable disease or infection!

    germs are fine, guy. there are more bacteria cells in your body than human cells!
