Hey girl hey. And boy.
We all have our bad habits; nailbiting, hitting the snooze button, twirling hair – but once you hear my 12 habits, you’ll probably realize that you were normal after all. 😂 And no, these aren’t your basic ‘”nO-oNe-dOeS-tHiS”-and-everyone-in-the-comments-relate’ type of post. It’s just me sharing my weird habits and all of you secretly arranging a mental room for me. 😂 We’ll see how it goes. Without further ado, let’s get started.
- Pinky Out
I haven’t even realized this until someone pointed it out but I always stick my pinky out whenever I do ANYTHING. Drinking tea, shutting the lamp, moving the mouse, playing clarinet (unless I’m using the pinky for a note) – you name it! I’m officially a British blogger guys. 😂
- Saying ‘Thank You’ back to ‘Thank You’
I knowww – it’s so weird. 😂 I don’t do it here since I can think before I type but unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen in real life. This teacher once said ‘thank you’ because I helped her with something and I literally say ‘thank you’ back. It happens ALL the time. 😂😂
- Opening Up Instagram Out Of Nowhere
I actually hate this one so much. I’d be doing work and bam I open up Instagram. Sometimes I even uninstall it because of this. 😂 This is more of a common one but I need to decrease it.
- Twisting Earring
I have these small hoop earrings and I just randomly twist it when I’m bored or anxious.
Ugh omg I literally can’t help myself. When I’m typing, I use the words ‘omg’, ‘ugh’, ‘literally’, ‘anyways’; but when I’m talking, I use the word like 3 times in a sentence.
- Delayed Reaction
This one is more of a reflex than a habit but I have the latest reaction ever. If you ever try to scare me, I pause and then scream 3 whole seconds later. 😂
- In Head Scenarios
I’m probably the only person who does this but I’ve been doing it since I can remember. Basically I’d think of convos or scenarios in my head that would probably never happen or how I think things might go in the future. Sometimes after I’ve done something I think of ways it could’ve gone differently. The worst thing is I might even space out in public places like grocery stores and my facial expressions changes without me knowing. 😂 I don’t know guys – maybe I’m the one who needs a Therapy Invitation. 😂😂
- Eating Arrangement
Whenever I have a platter of meat and vegetables, I always eat it in the same order. Meat first, broccoli second, carrots third and potatoes last. I don’t know if it’s a save best for last thing or what. Oh and I don’t eat the vegetables together – each one is separate. It seems like I need an asylum.😂
- Light & Sound Before I Sleep
I talked about this a bit in my Insomnia + Sleeping Disorders back in August but I cannot sleep in silence and darkness for the life of me. I know this is how humans were programmed to sleep but ugh I don’t know – it’s so eery! I have to have a bit of light in the hallway and the sound of my family talking or a tv show. I sound like such a baby right now but hey, I told you these were weird. 😂😂
- Assuming The Future Based On Random Actions
This is going to sound confusing but bear with me. Basically, it’s when I think “if this door closes….it means this will happen…”, get it? No? Here are some examples. Let’s say I have basketball practice and we’re practicing lay-ups. Sometimes I’d think, “if this basket goes in, I won’t present my speech today” or “I won’t be a teacher when I grow up”. Sometimes I do it to help me reach my goals like I’d not want to be a teacher so it encourages me to get the basket in. I really don’t know guys! I haven’t done it in a while but I’ve definitely done it a bunch of times in the past. 🤦♀️ 🤦♀️
- Dancing While Waiting For The Microwave
Please tell me someone does this too. Like when you heat something for 30 seconds and you just dance or sing until it finishes. No one? I bet everyone’s cringing right now. 😂
- Pretending I’m In A Music Video
This is similar to the in head situation one but if a song is stuck in my head or if I’m listening to a song while I’m walking, I kind of groove with the music or slightly lip sync with it. It’s always without me realizing it so I’m pretty sure everyone walking by was so weirded out. 😂 This one time I was listening to Fight Song and I was all aesthetic in my head looking out in the distance and all until I make eye contact with someone and attempted to make a recovery. (spoiler alert – it was awkward 😂)
Anddd that’s all I can recall. If I remember any more, I might mention some in a 20 Facts About Me post or something. Comment if you miraculously related to any or send some therapy hotlines down below. 😂
What are your weird habits?
