    All The Time

    This is my first story I've written.... Anyway I'll constantly shake my leg in most of my classes and sometimes in the car and people constantly comment or tell me to stop but the only time I found that I couldn't stop is when I cry...

    OMG! That's Me Too!

    I think I have always shaked by leg when I am nervous.  My brother always did it too!  It used to drive my ex husband nuts!  He always said why do you do that?  I said I don't know I don't even know I do it most of the time.  He said well your brother...

    Never Really Knew

    Last week in one of my classes, we were filmed while doing a certain excercise about social skills. My partner and I were sitting there, awkwardly aware of the camera, and it made me nervous. I guess that's pretty natural. When we looked at the tape I noticed that I was sitting...

    It's So Relaxing !

    I use to shake my leg when I am nervous or anxious ... and I hate when somebody hold my leg trying to stop me !!! People has to respect one other ... if seeing somebody shaking a leg makes you annoyed, just look at another thing!

    Yes But..

    I do shake my leg when I am nervous but the funny part is I hate when others do the same. Especially if I'm sitting next to them and they shake their leg so fast that it shakes everything around. And I abhor if I'm having a nice yummy shake in my hand and it gets shaken again...

    Or Bored, Or Antsy, Or Excited...

     I'm always the person shaking the car at a red light or the bench with my leg jiggling. I don't even realize I'm doing it sometimes. At least I don't do it constantly! I do wiggle my toes constantly, but people rarely notice that. I just have active legs and feet, I guess...
