    i drink all my drinks with a straw, even hot drinks.
    i walk with my feet turned slightly inwards, rather than outwards like most people.
    i cannot actually talk openly about my musical taste with people, what bands I like is more personal than almost anything else!!

    I draw circles and write Os and 0s clockwise, rather than anti-clockwise like most people do.

    I also cross the letters t, f and capital E from right to left, rather than left to right.

    Still makes more sense than cant be arsed (which means nothing) obviously they are idioms or something like that, so it probably shouldnt matter what we say. I just better be careful next time i go to the north and say cant be asked, i might get some funny looks
    lol crazy southener oj,

    I don't understand why on earth you would say can't be asked, e.g. 'Will you come to town with me?' 'No can't be asked'

    Whereas 'Will you come to town with me?' 'No can't be arsed.' Means like no I can't be bothered.

    I guess you're right it must be a regional thing, I wouldn't last five minutes in London wouldn't have a clue what anyone was on about haha

    I hate doors being open, so always make sure they are closed if I am in that room.

    Annnd, when I was younger, if i hit my left arm for example then I would have to do the same to the right. So they felt 'even'...or something

    When I make tea, the milk has to be around 1/10 of the overall liquid

    When I make toast, I like to waive it around a bit, to make sure it's not too hot - otherwise when i put the butter on (spread evenly, to the edges), it goes soggy

    I like to portion my different bits of food so for example when having sausages and mash, I'll make sure I have enough and equal amounts of mash to go with every bit of sausage LOL


    Flicking light switches

    Having everything in order of date in my folders, and in plastic wallets

    Constancy - for example, for my politics course, for every topic I have 1. lecture notes, 2. my notes, 3. essential reading notes, 4. extra reading notes - and i have to keep this order for all of them, otherwise i get really annoyed, if say for example, there are no lecture notes

    Everything has to be symmetrical and even, I dont like odd bits of stuff sticking out, or for example books being tilted on my shelf... also it really annoys me if say, my boyfriend and i are having dinner, and he grabs a plate with a different design to mine

    That's some of it.

    A lot of OCD....
    I do both of these too lol

    Also usually cut my food with the edge of my fork instead of using a knife.

    Maybe its a regional thing?

        Honestly? Because my RE teacher writes them like that and I went through a phase at the start of year 9 when I first had her when I thought she was so cool I should copy her handwriting It also means I now write Es a little like this: ?

        I say wolf phoenetically, apparently it's a big deal.
        Made me laugh out loud when I said it: W-OL-F

        Mine:

        I only really drink water / milk. I don't drink fizzy drinks or juice I prefer to just have water. People sometimes make a fuss like its not good enough them giving me water but thats all I want. I don't particularly like alcohol or benefit from its effects so rarely drink it. I take anti-depressants to so it would just seem counterproductive.

        I have quite an addictive personality. If I like something I tend to surround myself in it over and over again. Music, food, exercise, books, games, TV, people etc... The problem is I need to monitor and control it otherwise I tend to burn out and feel really low. Thankfully I've never smoked or other recreational drugs that can be addictive.

        I don't like any form of clutter or things I don't need. I want them out of the way straight away- my room is relatively tidy and organised usually. I am often improving the way I sort things out. I always prepare mysely well for things I want- job interviews / hobbies etc...

        I don't really have an eye for "style" especially when it comes to clothes. I don't think I look ridiculous with the things I wear but I like very very plain things. I like them to be smart, often one colour, fit me well and be of good quality. I hate things that have words or phrases on it makes me think "I didn't say this these aren't my words so I don't want to promote them on my T-shirt". I am very conscientious and always think how my actions will affect the world around me - people / myself / the environment etc... It very much effects how I buy things such as food. I am conscious of what I am putting into my body- I don't like buying things with a load of things on the ingredients (especially if they are additives that aren't tne natural ingredients if I were to make it myself). I just think "Why has this been added ? I don't want it or need it, nor did I ask for it ?".

        I don't like sales and buzz-words and a lot of advertisements. If I want something I will define it very clear in my head and find the most suitable item of good quality for the best price. I won't buy something just because its cheap or because its in the sale. If I want something I will research it and if its realistic and I still want it, I will go get it.

        I dislike small talk (often in such cases I would rather just not talk) but if I want something or want to talk about something specifically I have no problem talking to them. I'm the same if someone talks to me about something specifically to me or wants something from me I am good but general chit-chat about the weather I find so draining and a waste and difficult.

        That reminds me the weather rarely stops me from doing something. I've noticed cold weather will put a lot of my mates off doing something. I'll decide if I'm going to do something, not leave it to the weather. There are limits of course but I like to think I call the shots.

        I tend not to like popular things, they tend to bore and I also feel pressured to like it as if I'm supposed to- football, facebook, drinking/clubbing etc... I'm not keen on any of these.
