Quirks

Recently, Lisa of Respect the Shoes did a cute little post where she appreciated quirkiness, listed some of her quirks, and invited people to tell her about theirs. I loved this idea so much that I decided to do my own post on them! Plus, who are we kidding? If I'd listed off all my quirks in her comments section, the poor girl would have been reading them for hours. Though, I promise I won't bore you with hours about me, haha.


LOLcats make life better.

1. I, like that cat, am obnoxiously particular about things and routines and schedules and lists and whether that frame I put up is perfectly straight. I brush my teeth for at least a minute. I only eat Honey Nut Cheerios or oatmeal for breakfast. I like my things to all have a proper place, even if they sometimes aren't in that place. The volume on my car can only be set to even numbers and I can't just have one window down (for symmetry, you know?). I split up my college reading by number of pages per day so as to finish by a certain time. There are so many little things, but I think until I start organizing my closet by color (which I've thought of doing many times, but haven't executed yet), I don't need to see a specialist.

2. I am a huge sucker for science. I love reading science news and fun articles about all the amazing work being done in so many fields just blow me away. It's really cool to read about what we're discovering about our world and our bodies and space! Needless to say, I think research was probably the right short-term career choice for me.

3. I'm slowly becoming obsessed with TV. I do this thing where I start watching new TV shows over breaks, so you can imagine how I've accumulated quite a number of shows I watch. My recent favorites have been The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Parenthood, and Gossip Girl. I love being able to relate to families, people, and concepts in TV shows, because they're so much better developed than in movies, most times. I'm especially into comedy, so it's no surprise that my all-time favorites include sitcoms like I Love Lucy, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Three's Company. I have to watch my shows!

4. I like good grammar. There are phrases I purposefully will not use because I'm unsure about their grammatical correctness. Often times, I pause during sentences to determine if something I'm saying is correct. I tend to edit and re-edit my blog posts a hundred times over. I also occasionally outwardly flinch when other people use poor grammar or switch in "then" instead of "than" on their blogs. I'm trying really hard to work on this, but especially with blogging, misuse of their/there/they're is kind of a deal-breaker on which ones I decide to follow...

What are some of your quirks?

  2. I'm the same way about grammar, if I'm even remotely unsure of the correct phrasing I'll just reword what I'm trying to say :)

  6. I'm a sucker for science too. And geography. Give me a geography book and I'm lost for hours!!

    My main quirk, however, is that I have the most unusual hiccups. They're a bit hard to describe, perhaps a bit like a seal pup...!

  7. This is great, thanks for the shout out! I got an electric toothbrush over the holidays, which has been awesome because it turns itself off after two minutes of brushing, so I always know I am perfectly timed right!

  9. Oh my I feel exactly the same as you about some of these things...I am very particular about grammar and really like writing and talking as correctly as possible.

    I also like everything to be symmetric and have a proper place and do exactly what you do for dealing with my university readings.

    I actually have my closet organized by item of clothing and then colour...it's a recognized way of organizing closets really....you would not need to see a specialist if you do that. Trust me.

    Look forward to hearing from you

    Love

  10. It's so good to see that there are still people who care about grammar!
    And is that where the word 'lolcat' comes from...? I never knew!
