    I can't find this anywhere on the internet

    and i don't wanna be the only one.. its hard to explain. But to put it bluntly..I love to touch my teeth with my nails and fingers.. I just love it. Scratching over them with my nail feeling the 'vibrations' and listening to the scratchy sound. Or sliding my fingertip over them...

    When I'm nervous I do stuff with my hands, pick at my nail polish, move them around. I don't know where it came from. And my other weird habit is I always always tap on a soda, whatever can before I open it.

    I often continue speaking

    even when i dont need to. For some reason, i kind of babble on. Not only that, but i tend to start a lot of sentences with "so". I do these quite a bit when im nervous so haha yeah. Idk why i do i always have, i guess thats just my little quirk. So yeah.

    This is probably quite odd to you

    but ever since I was about 9 I have always shook bananas before opening them. It started as some stupid joke with my friends (I can't even remember the relevance, we were really young and did things like that all the time) but ever since then it has become some sort of...

    I Wear A Sweater Or A Sweatshirt In Bed

    Instead of wearing the normal things in bed (pyjamas, t-shirt etc.) I wear either a sweater or a sweatshirt. I could never sleep properly without it. Anybody else do the same.

    to death, so this has nothing to do with any animosity towards her (you know, the old rumor that "if you step on a crack, you'll break your mother's back")... but whenever I'm walking on a sidewalk, I find it very comforting to step on every crack I can find, especially the...

    Fidgety Hands

    When I am nervous I tend to fidget... like I touch everything. Lately though it has gotten out of hand and i do it all the time. When I have nail polish on it usually does not last very long because I tend to bite it off.

    I have a Weird habit of rocking side to side

    while laying down listening to music. While doing this I be in deep thought. I can't go a day without doing it. It is such a embarrassing habit. I've been doing it for 20 years and I don't think I could ever stop.

    My Habit: I Peel Stuff...

    That's it... I peel stuff. Anything, paint, stickers, plastic coatings, tape... really anything that will peel. It's the oddest thing, but I love it and it is very comforting... I will even paint my fingernails just so I can peel it all off.

    This is going to sound

    so weird and crazy. But I am really into astrology and I study it and know all of what signs are compatible with what. And I know all the signs traits. And I won't get close to somebody if I know their sign isn't compatible with mine. I'm afraid they'll hurt me or betray me...

    - I tend to pull out my hair sometimes.

    - I bite the inside of my cheek to the point where I taste iron. - I dig my nails or scratch my wrist where I used to cut when I'm tempted to cut and I don't have a blade.
