So I've mentioned before, but I have quite a few are just a few:

1. I can never set my morning alarms to typical times such as 6:00 or 5:30. They have to be unusual** even numbers, and usually look like this: 6:02, 6:16, 6:36, 6:52. I'm not sure if this is because of my love for even numbers, my love for every last second of sleep, or a combination of both. But it is what it is. I have even gotten Dan to do it whenever we take naps together! ha!

2. I love symmetry. I typically chew my food on both sides of my mouth (just like a good friend of mine). I'm bothered if one foot hurts, but the other doesn't too. If there's two pillows on one side of the bed, there needs to be two on the other side.

3. I really hate the word moist. Typing it just now grossed me out. It just sounds disgusting to me. I have gotten better and can say moisture and moisturizing out loud, but you will most likely never hear me say the root word. (See above -- I'm not typing it again).

4. I find joy in labeling and color coding. A calendar is just not the same without color coded events, neatly written annvirsary reminders for every 21st of the month, and highlighted days of when I have classes at the gym.

So those are just a few. Trust me, there are a lot more. Although the word "quirky" may have somewhat of a negative connotation sometimes, I like to see it as a great thing. Something else to seperate you from the masses. Something unique.

What are your quirks?
**I added "unusual" to clear things up...obviously I realize 6:00 is an even number (ahem b.g.) but I just think they look better to me when it's a number that's not so typical like 6:02 or 6:18.

Just an FYI, teach, but 6:00 and 5:30 ARE even numbers. Oh boy.

Forgive me, Bethany. I know I can be slow at times, but I find your comment odd.
