If I turn around in a circle, I have to turn around the opposite way or I feel incredibly off-balance. I used to count stairs as I walked up them, but I’ve dropped that habit. I also like to eat things in multiples of five.

I am an OCD perfectionist when it comes to my handwriting. It must look PERFECT or I will have to start everything I am writing all over again. I’m in a grad program, and my classmates love copying my notes b/c they said that my notes are super neat with very neat writing, haha.

All my underwear has to be folded the exact same way and put away in a certain order.  Same thing with my socks.

I have an extreme, extreme fear of throw up. Does that count? I am TERRIFIED of other people throwing up (I can’t be in the same room – I will run out the door if someone is about to, it makes me hyperventilate) and I’ll avoid situations where people will be throwing up. I’m worried about how I will handle this when DH and I have kids.

No matter how hungry I am, I will not eat my cereal until every single piece of it has been adequately dunked under the milk.

-I try our doorknob 3 times after locking it. If I accidently do 4 turns, I unlock the door and start over.

-At least once a week, I race home in a panic that our apartment has caught fire/been broken into/dogs have been kidnapped/dogs have spontaneously died/left a stove on/left the house unlocked.

-If I wake up at night to pee, I turn on every light on the way to and from the bathroom. I don’t really have a reason.

…I think I need help :-p

I have this sick thing with my hair straightener.. I’m always so worried I’ve left it plugged in, if I remember, on my way out of the house, I always go back and double check it.. Or when I leave for the weekend to go to FI’s, every time I’m not POSITIVE I unplugged it, I call my mom and tell her to check it.

Its really bad.. lol.. So I went out and bought a straightener that has auto shut off after an hour lol, but when I choose to use my old one (theres nothing wrong with it!) the crazies stir in me if I’m not certian I unplugged it lol

Whenever I pick mushrooms from the grocery store I have to pick equal numbers from each side of the box or I will die or something equally bad. It’s quite ridiculous, I’m not proud of myself.

Whenever I adjust the volume on the tv or stereo, I always have to change it to a multiple of 5. I can’t do 32. I will have to do either 30 or 35. Otherwise it makes my skin crawl!

I don’t do this as much anymore, but definitely when I was a kid/teenager I had this thing when I was in a car that I would blink every time I passed a dip in the curb (like where a driveway comes out) and would only blink the eye on the side where the curb dip was.  So I would be blinking after every house I passed.  I still do it sometimes but not often.

@MrsNewDay:  my writing would send you into a panic attack. I think there is something wrong with me as my writing is a hot mess of print, cursive, upper case, lower case and just basic scribble. There is no rhyme or reason and I don’t know how I got to this point. It’s gross quite frankly.
