We all have little quirks. We all have pet peeves.
We all have things that make us unique and maybe crazy.
We all have things we love and we all have things we don't love.
Well, some things I love and some things I don't love can sometimes seem contradictory.
Just see what I mean below.
I Love Orange Juice. Like I could drink it all the time and whenever I do pour a glass, I can down it in about 2.5 seconds. Okay, maybe not that fast, but still. I down the first glass and then quickly pour myself another!
But, I Hate Oranges. I don't know what it is about oranges themselves, but I just don't like them. I don't like eating them, I don't like peeling them, I don't like the strong smell they give off. Yes, strange I know. But, I don't feel like this is much different than people who love ketchup, but hate tomatoes (or vice versa). I do like those little tangelos or Cuties though. Yes, I know I'm strange.
I Love To Read. I have tons and tons of books. I have books crowding my nightstand and a whole Rubbermaid tub in storage full of books. If I could have my own library, I would. I love to spend Saturdays at the thrift store perusing their books for hours. I love fantasy, young adult, the classics, non-fiction, biographies, etc. I love how books can take you to another world and make you fall in love with characters who seem like they could be your friend in real life.
But, I Hardly Ever Finish A Book. Yes, sad, but true. I can start a book, but it takes great discipline for me to finish a book. Sometimes I might hit a dry spell where I don't want to read at all. Or I want to quit reading my current book and start a new one, but I make myself read at least a couple of chapters a night to finish that book before I start a new one. I don't like to be reading more than 2 books at a time (one fiction, one non-fiction), but sometimes that doesn't happen.
I Love To Fly. Traveling is one of my favorite things of all time. I love sitting in airports and people watching. I love reading a book, watching a movie, or drawing on a long flight. And some of the best naps I have ever had in my life have been while I've been flying. I love the beauty I get to see while flying, from being above the clouds, to seeing the ocean and beach below, and especially flying over the snow-covered Rockies. Thankfully, I've only had one bad flight (turbulence wise), so I still enjoy flying.
But, I'm Afraid Of Helicopters. I can't explain it and I don't know why. Helicopters just freak me out. I hate watching them land or take off, but I still watch just in case something starts to go wrong and I can run. I love action movies, but it seems like every one of them has a helicopter crash. And that is horrific friends! I literally will cover my eyes and wait until someone tells me the scene/crash is completely over before uncovering my eyes. Taking a scenic helicopter ride has never been something I've wanted to do. I've always said that the only way I will ride in a helicopter is if I'm unconscious and unaware. (Hopefully this never happens.) P.S. I love the movie The Guardian, but it is hard for me to watch. LOTS of helicopter scenes in that movie folks. Also, love watching the Blue Angels, but the moment those copters start flying. Eh. I want to look away, but I HAVE to watch in case something happens. See above.
I Love Having My Room Cleaned and Organized. Everything is where I can find it, I can see my carpet, and it just seems to smell better. ha In order for me to get things done and be productive, the room I'm in has to be cleaned. You can only imagine what college was like for me. If I was going to have a cram sesh, my apartment HAD to be cleaned. And this wasn't as easy as it seems...see below.
But, My Room Is Usually Messy. Yeah, although I like it cleaned and organized, I usually forget what color my carpet is because it is buried beneath loads of laundry. Life happens, I get busy, and I often don't wash clothes until I'm down to my last pair of underwear. True story, friends.
I Fold My T-Shirts and Towels a Specific Way. Which I know that many people may have a specific way to do laundry and such, but if my t-shirts aren't folded the way I fold them, well then it just throws everything off. I will re-fold them even though I think it's nice someone else did my laundry (Thanks, Mom!), plus they fit in my drawer better the way I fold them.
But, I Hate Doing Laundry and Wrinkles Don't Bother Me. Whenever I do laundry, particularly towels, I just want to curl up and fall asleep in them. Especially when they are all warm and fresh from the dryer. I can easily throw my clothes in the washer and then transfer to the dryer, but once that dryer beeps, well, they might stay there for awhile. And then, if they get out of the dryer, they may stay piled up on the floor for a week until I finally fold them. The way I like it of course. I also have no problem wearing a shirt with wrinkles in it...to an extent of course.
I could probably keep thinking of more things that make me seem crazy, but do you guys really want to read this? ha
We all have things that make us silly and weird. After all, if we were all the same, life would be pretty boring wouldn't it?
I now want to know some silly // crazy // weird // quirky traits about you guys!
