i am just a tad odd...

I love blogging about all of my oddities or quirks if you will. It is fun. Why? Because it makes me step back and reexamine my life and wonder if I should try a smidge harder to not be such an obsessive compulsive control freak. Then it makes me realize that I am who I am...and that hopefully everyone will just love me through it. Plus, you all seem to have fun discussing/making fun of me and my crazy in the comments section so it is fun for all (which is what SHE said)...

Weird Thing #1:

So I am pretty much a note taking fool. Like you should see the epic amounts of paper I go through with my super freak note taking abilities. It is pure insanity. I also take notes on random things...such as a book I am reading just for fun. I used to make notes in the margins (it was burned into my brain to do so by my high school English teacher), I have however stopped doing so...because other people borrow my books and they would think I was a whack job. Anywho...I have this thing where if I am taking notes for a class and I write something that I end up needing to cross out for some reason...I absolutely MUST go back and re-write ALL of the notes. Yeah...the entire page. It is a problem to say the least...

Weird Thing #2:

I am a very particular person...you know in case y'all didn't pick that fact up on your own. I am way crazy about the way I sleep. I already discussed some of my odd sleeping habits here. So along with having to sleep in a bed that has been made, I must have COMPLETE darkness whilst sleeping. Yeah...sort of like a bat-cave of my very own. So, I have a pull down shade that blocks out the sun, I also have been known to shove a pillow in the gap under my door, and then I cover up my alarm clock because the gleam of that light makes me want to gouge my eyeballs out. I also cannot sleep in silence...so no matter how freezing it may be I sleep with a fan going full speed. However, that one I think is normal. Right folks?...Right?!

Weird Thing #3:

Okay so this thing may be linked with the above weird thing...but I want a list of 5 things (because I have OCD with numbers). So, while I can't stand light when sleeping...and I need noise when sleeping sometimes I leave the television on to fall asleep to. Which sounds dumb because a TV emits light...yeah I know...I am weird. However, I am specific about what I watch while falling asleep to the glow of my television screen. I own seasons of ALL of my favorite shows. Why? Because I love them...duh. I also watch them over and over. So, when trying to fall asleep I cannot have something on TV that I have not seen before...it has to be a DVD of one of the shows that I have watched a bazillion times (preferably 'Gilmore Girls'). Amen.

Weird Thing #4:

This one is short but sweet. So toothpaste is glorious. It is pretty much one of the loves o' my life. I brush my teeth like four times a day. No lies. In my world when one squeezes the toothpaste from the center of the tube it is pretty much a shanking offense. Why on earth do people do that? Hi...squeeze it from the bottom to the top (baha...he totes told her that). I am happy to report that when Sam was visiting last week he got his toothpaste taken away at the airport and used mine...he squeezed the tube from the bottom. Yeah...I checked. Virtual high-five Sam!

Weird Thing #5:

The fact that this list had to be composed of five things. I could not stop at four even though I really wanted to. In my head I could do five or ten. Not four or seven. Yeah...welcome to the crazy that is my brain.

There you have it. More of my quirks. I hope these make me endearing and not psychotic. At least I embrace the fact that I am a touch of crazy with a pinch of neurotic. As I always say...just love me through it.

Heh, I am glad I passed the toothpaste test. ;-)

I enjoy your friendship, you weird-o!

Lauren said...

I am also a note taking fool! I was at one of the most boring meetings of my life and the guy sitting next to me watched me take notes the whole time. A little creepy, but he was amazed at my note taking ability.

Duh, you are supposed to squeeze the toothpaste from the bottom.

I love your OCD ways!

Anna said...

Your quirkiness is why I follow your blog! haha. I have the coolest little thing for my toothpaste tube, it is a plastic disc with a slit in the middle that you clamp on the end of the tube and slide it up as you use the toothpaste to extract every single bit! It is something only my mother would have given me.

You are such a crack up. I'm a huge fan of taking proper notes. I use indents and arrows. looks kind of crazy, but I love it. It also makes me mad when they say there are 4 things then only tell you 3, because then I have to cross out and I hate that.

love you through all of this!

xo, ash

Jilian said...

Ok here's what I find odd...You the hater of all things decorated in 3's and 5's...just made a list of 5 items?! I'm sure there's an OCD reason though, yes?

Lovin ya through it!

Allison said...

Haha, I love this! I am so OCD like this too. Like. with EVERYTHING on this list. Except for the TV while I sleep. :D

Lauren Elizabeth said...

in high school, i LOVED falling asleep to gilmore girls. now i have a roommate. UGH.

haha love this list. but i must admit...i don't squeeze from the bottom. (that's what she said.)

Kimberly said...

I <3 you and all your quirks.

Kellie said...

So ya. My notes have to be super neat. Like you said, if for some reason I had to scratch something off, I just go back and rewrite everything.

I do the fan thing too. I have to have my fan on every single night. But I also need my TV on.. but if it's on I have to face away from it because the light from it bothers me. I know..

And yeah. Toothpaste.. just don't get me started. If someone squeezes mine from the middle I will go in there and squeeze it at the top just to fill in that dent someone made. It bugs.

I love you and all your OCDness! Your weird ways make you unique and totally awesome!

Christina said...

Dude. The fan in the bedroom. I used to want to shank your brother for that. It would be SO FREEZING and the effing fan would be going. Not to mention that my lips would constantly be chapped when I was over there.

Unpleasant. All I'm sayin'.

I am the anti-OCD, BUT when I was a teen I had to have complete silence, complete dark, and blankets/sheets layered on or under me in an exact "pattern" to sleep. Trust me, when you get married and have kids, you get over that pretty darn quickly. Now I can sleep anywhere and anyhow..just as long as the ol' girl is getting some sleep. :)

Vanessa said...

I like it to be dark when I sleep too but silence is unacceptable. I sleep with the radio or my ipod on. & the fan. I can't sleep when it is warm.
