Default Re: Me and OCD

I'm severe OCD I annoy people sometimes. For instance, partners in school projects will either love me or will want to kill me by the end of the project. For instance, I was writing a screenplay with someone, and their formatting was all wrong. They were getting the margins incorrect. The margin for a character name is 3.7 inches, NOT 3.5 inches, and then the dialog is 2.5 inches. That's the example where he wanted to kill me by the end of the project. However, I had one where we were making a time line, and I had to divide the paper into sections proportional to the time periods they represented. I was helpful with that one.

I get the numbers too. I don't like even numbers themselves (I think that has something to do with my synesthesia though) but divisible is nice. It all depends. I like odd numbers because there's one in the middle, like three is the middle of five, and there are two numbers before three, and two numbers after three.

There just HAS to be the right number of ice cubes in my glass. It's always the second digit of my age. Though if it's a smaller cup, I can usually get by with four because it's half of eight and... works, you know.

I could go on with lists and lists of those little things I know how it is, and if you ever want to talk to a fellow OCD, you can always do so

And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
