I was tagged by Intricate to write six weird things about me. In itself, I found this whole idea weird because why would anyone want to share their eccentricities with the whole world? After stalling for sometime, I thought maybe I should give it a try so listing the rules first


6 weird habits/things about yourself


The initial player of this “game” starts with the topic “6 weird habits/things about yourself” and people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names:)

And here goes my list

a) I type with my two index fingers. I never noticed this until I started working when people who would drop by at the cubicle would comment that, I have a very strange way of typing. Then I started noticing how people around me type on the keyboard. Being surrounded mostly by IT guys (geeks?), they type using all their 8 fingers and pressing the space bar with thumbs.

b) While typing a document, writing code or anything that I need to save, I press ALT+F+S loads of times in one go when doing that only once can do the trick. This has become more of a habit that I would have an attack of ALTFS in the middle of the work and use the combination at least thrice to save the work. And sometimes, the document/code do end with extra ‘s’ in the middle of nowhere.

c) I have this obsessive/compulsive thing that while cutting anything like fruits/veggies I have to cut all of them in almost the same shape and size like squares, rectangles, triangles or whatever.

d) I am a novel freak but while reading them I have to balance the type/genre of novels I am reading. If I am reading a very guy-oriented novel with lots of action, I have to balance my reading with something equally humorous, romantic and mushy. Same pattern goes with movies and series I watch.

e) I don’t like being photographed at all which thereby means I usually have no photographs of the important moments and events in my life. If somebody does take a picture, I usually ask them to delete it.

f) In my mind, I always have to make a road map for things I need to do, how much time it’ll take? When should I complete it? and the likes. That’s why I always tend to have a lot of lists of tasks or to-do’s on paper too. This doesn’t particularly relate to work or studies but anything I have to do like shopping or going out. For example, these nights I am an addicted to watching series seasons so I usually plan out at what time should I start? How many I should watch to get reasonable amount of sleep?!


Before starting this, I was doubtful whether I would be able to come up with six idiosyncrasies of mine but now I can think of loads more 😉 So the exercise has done me good in evaluating my weird habits!

Since I personally know only a few bloggers so I tag Em, Jingoist, The Serial Chiller, Lubz, RSameem, Waqqas !
