    I have a habit of drawing on myself.

    Usually whatever I'm bored or depressed I do it, and it's usually symbolic or interesting-looking. My parents hate that I do it because it's bad for my skin, but I can't stop! XD

    It bugs me every day - every time anybody says

    anything I repeat it in my head counting the syllables and I can't stop. It is so annoying. When I try not to do it my head doesn't listen and does it anyway and it totally distracts me. No wonder I always lose focus when people say things.

    Annoying Actually

    As in I have habits that may not be classified as "bad" but I'm sure are intensely annoying. I interrupt people. I cannot sit through commercials. Which means, that I normal switch between one or two channels constantly and quite often miss portions of the...

    Ever since I moved to my current city,

    I developed a habit of collecting fortune cookies. Not eating any, simply taking the fortune inside them and putting them in one place, which is my book bag for the time being. As weird and goofy as it is, it really is kind of cool to see what fortunes I get, and I've gotten all...

    I have a tendency to stare at strangers

    for inappropriate lengths of time. I can't help it, especially if I find the person to be enigmatic or easy on the eyes. It's essential for me to pinpoint, analyze, and critique everything I can see, or can't. Most of the time, I have nothing but positive things to say.

    I have this weird thing

    that I do with my feet when I get sleepy. I have to rub my feet against anybody that's laying beside me, doesn't matter if it's a boy or girl. It helps me sleep. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it until someone mentions it.

    I have a bad habit of assuming I’ve annoyed

    people, and it usually ends up with me dropping communication and hoping they’ll be the ones to continue it.

    Staying at my boyfriends house

    until 11 at night. I love spending time with him and I hate having to say goodbye and coming home. I should really stop staying over there so late because I don't like it when he has to wake up his mom just so that she can drop me off at home.

    Rambling: The Verbal Scenic Route

    I have a bad habit of pushing people away from

    me. I'm very socially unaware of the fact people are trying to get close to me and I'm not letting them. I hope to break this habit in the near future.

    Biting my nails. Ugh.

    It used to be a lot worse than it is now... I had complete nubs and split cuticles. There was no way that I could make them pretty. In 5th grade, though, I finally stopped. That lasted until I got really bad anxiety problems in 7th grade. The nubs returned. Though the nail...

    and tell everyone about them and I think I take it too far that I can't come back from it and I don't know what to tell my friends they will think I'm mad! Any advice?

    I have very recently started a bad habit again.

    I know I shouldn't.... But the stress gets to me. It's oddly soothing although I'm perfectly aware it's killing me. Bleh.

    I have a bad habit of not eating,

    or of eating only once a day. But, it's just that I forget to eat. Either I am constantly hungry, or I'm only hungry once every twenty or so hours.

    or gross, but I eat my hair... Not to the point of balding, but it's pretty bad... It has to be my hair, and I usually eat it if it's laying around... I'm not always pulling it out. My family told me that this is deadly, but I can't seem to stop myself...
