    Is There An Echo?

    I don't know how this started, but I've been doing it my entire life. Whenever someone asks me a question, I repeat the whole question back before continuing to answer. I've had people point it out, and complain that it's annoying. I don't do it on purpose, in fact I try to...

    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.

    I Cannot...

    I cannot keep my hands free and flowing for a long time. Even if its just for a minute. I don't know why my hands need something to hold on to. It's weird, isn't it?

    Hands

    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 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.

    Weirdness

    Don't be afraid. I'm just a bit weird, that's all. There's a weird habit I've had since young. It's not as strong now, but as they say, habits are tough cookies to break. When I was younger, it went like this: I couldn't eat one of something. This applied especially to smaller...

    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.

    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.
