Do you have things that you do that people always point out as being odd, unique, or just quirky?

Cause I do.

I wear sweaters all the time. I honestly have more sweaters than I do shirts. Cardigans, Zip-Ups, Pullovers, Purple, Red, Black, Space Print, Bandana Print, Weird Hipster Sayings, Souvenirs... just a ton of sweaters. And I wear them all. Work, Church, Military Events, Parties, just so many sweaters. I once had a woman at SeaWorld get mad at me for wearing a sweater in 100 degree heat (36-ish degress Celsius). I do it mostly because it's a security blanket for me. I honestly get a bit uncomfortable if I go without one for awhile. I even have a few that I only use to sleep in. I don't know why they comfort me so much either. I hate when people touch my arms, so it might have something to do with "protection" but I don't know. It's a quirk, I guess.

People also point out how much I sweep my hair out of my face. Even if it's not in my face.

The way I pronounce "February" and "Tomorrow" gets brought up whenever I say them. I pronounce them "feb-Rue-ary" as opposed to "Feb-you-ary" and "to-More-ow" as opposed to "to-Mar-ow". I don't know where I picked these up either. Like I said, quirks.

What are yours?

I don't think my sense of dress is in anyway abnormal but I do wear mismatched socks. I'm naturally a very fidgety person, always tapping my foot and changing position in a chair, which I don't think fits with my otherwise ghost-like persona. By ghost like I mean that I have the unfortunate habit of entering places and leaving them without anyone knowing I'm doing it. I'm the quintessential wallflower except when I'm not. My speech patterns are a bit odd. People tell me I talk like I'm speaking prose, not in a good way or a way that makes me sound intelligent, its just a way I have (I guess) of choosing words and pauses. 

 

I'm fairly unassuming until you get to know me and even then I don't know that I'm so much "quirky" as bizarrely (and maladapaptivly) reflective. I analyze peoples movements, mannerisms, quirks, energies, ways of doing things, with myself being my primary subject. But, that said, I'm pretty sure I'm wholly uninteresting. Maybe a bit too self-absorbed.

In the middle of a conversation, I have the tendency to stand on one leg with the other leg against my calf for long periods of time. I don't know why I do, it just feels right. My family gets on to me all the time about, but I don't care. I also can't sit still, I have to adjust my legs all the time. With all my leg problems, I think I have slight RLS.

 

  My speech still has some slight problems since childhood. It takes me forever to pronounce words like squirrel or plagiarism correctly, and I have the tendency to stammer those words. I also tend to use very little slang or odd adjectives when I talk, or type, for that matter.

I tend to have conversations with characters I have made up in my mind. Occasionally in public, if no one else is speaking to me.

I like birds. If a thing I need to buy has an insolent bird on it I am ecstatic. If a place I need to go is full of birds I am pleased. If there are spiky bits on the roofs or perches I have a horrified "but... BIRDS!" flash. Then sanity returns and I acquiesce that I equally hate birds as much I love them.

I had a phobia of owls, recurring dreams when I was a child. To cure myself of this I bought all the owl paraphernalia. Now I still feel twitchy around owls, but it's progress from freezing at the sight of one.

I grudgingly have a very small Georgian accent sometimes. It's not super noticeable. Ten+ years of exposure, I consider that inevitable.

I'm obsessed by self-improvement. Mindfulness, Christian living, prayer, organisation, productivity, efficiency, exercise, health, diet, meditation - you name it, I've probably got a notebook crammed with jottings on the subject. 

 

I spend a large amount of time researching slightly odd topics. Current flavour-of-the-month is secret societies and the global conspiracy. 

 

Low-key obsessed with perfecting the ultimate iTunes playlist, too.

So, I'll admit I'm not very good at like actually implementing much of this stuff but I get this sooooo much.

I frequently break into a strange accent that is not my own. It happens when I hear people using an accent and it happens subconsciously so I get quite embarrassed when they call me out on it.
