My friend Lisa wrote a cool post sharing her personal quirks with us and I thought it was so fun to learn about her own personal idiosyncrasies. I am convinced, all of us have little quirks, personal preferences, and OCD tendencies and I thought I’d share mine today. Here we go:
+ I can’t sleep without something covering my mid-section. I don’t know why that is, but even if it’s super-hot, I have to have a sheet or something covering my waist, hips, and thighs. It’s totally a comfort thing.
+ I am very particular about how I take my coffee. It has to be just right in terms of how strong the brew is, what temperature it is at, and its ratio to any add-ins (I prefer 50:50 with 2% milk and a splash of original creamer). I hope you wrote this down (j/k).
+ Lisa mentioned that she’s a fast typer and I loved to hear that because I am a fast typer, too! 90WPM (both in English and German – ha!) and my Dad says it sounds like a drum roll when I type. I was fortunate to attend a typing class in college (BEFORE I typed my 100 page thesis!) and I am so thankful I did. My sister still types with 3-4 fingers (I think) and she is a teacher and has to frequently type up report cards. I keep telling her that she needs to put the time in and attend a typing class – it’ll be a time saver in the long run! Are you a fast typer? Don’t know? Test yourself here.
+ I am sort of ambidextrous. I can’t really write with my left hand, but I will randomly eat with the spoon/fork in my left hand sometimes. I also trained long jump in college consistently using my right leg as the takeoff leg and then – on exam day – I used my left leg (without really noticing) and achieved a better result than in training. Funny how that works. I also had a stronger backhand in tennis and would switch between right and left hand hitting in softball.
+ I wear my watch on my right wrist.
+ I sit at my desk with my legs in eagle pose. People always ask if that isn’t uncomfortable, but no, it’s very comfortable for me and it’s totally a subconscious thing that I don’t even think about.
+ I eat Twix from the top layer down. I never just bite into it, but eat the chocolate-caramel layer first and then the cookie bar. How do you eat your Twix?
+ I am German, born and raised, and don’t drink beer (riddle me that, Batman!). Well, generally. In the summer, I will make an exception and have the occasional Radler (German word for Shandy, basically. Light beer with sparkling soda.)
Share one of your quirks with me!
