Bad Habits

Postby Machalllewis » 15 Feb 2010, 16:29

So it was recently revealed to me that I am essentially a collection of bad habits placed into human form. I do these things without even knowing that I'm doing them and I do them constantly. These include such things as cracking my knuckles, jiggling my leg and speaking in brackets.

Now what I want to know is that I'm not the only one. Please share your bad habits below. I thank you.

also the leg jiggle is my worst, in school on the second floor they would feel it across the room and the teacher would tell me to stop a good 2-3 times an hr. also doesnt help i live in a trailer
farting when foods out <_< i only seemingly do that around my gf though

I've had people flip out on me over the cracking of my knuckles. Maybe his nicotine patch had just run out or something. The whole story about this is my Mum pointed all this stuff out to me and she will occasionally just hit me in the thigh cos of the leg jiggling. I guess she hopes that if she gives me a dead leg it'll stop the whole deal.

Procrastination and over-caffination, also not eating due to being enthralled in a game or very busy. Haven't eaten breakfast or lunch for 4 days now, yay dinner!

I crack my knuckles a lot.

Some bad habits I have are picking at my lips and biting my knuckles/fingers. I actually have a callus on one knuckle from it. It's an anxiety thing, I'm pretty sure.

I also jiggle my leg, tap on things, and bite my lip (my poor lips get lots of abuse).

I tend to overuse smiley faces, especially =D and xD.

Ohhhhh biting my lip I do. Also smoking now I think about it has kinda become un-cool and simply a bad habit. Or just a sign of being an evil person.

Oh the list... I chew the inside of my mouth, I jiggle both of my legs (if you try stopping one, usually the other one will start up in its place), I bite my finger nails and chew the skin around them, I crack my knuckles, jaw and toes, I have a really bad habit of correcting people every time they get something wrong, and being really smug about it, I don't keep a regular sleep schedule and get really cranky when I wake up tired, I will attack spots, lumps, itches etc. whenever and wherever I am, if I happen to find one, oh I also crack my neck, there are probably more I could include, but I don't want to come across as too much of a phailure...

Jiggle legs, crack joints, pick scabs, peel skin from fingers, don't like to sit normally in chairs, space out when other people are talking, and I picked up a vocal tic a couple of years ago wherein a make a little pop noise in the back of my throat.

Oh procrastination. That's gotten me in multiple bad situations before. I probably crack my knuckles/neck more than I should.

Im thinking that everyone has the same habits so far. Biting, tapping, chewing and the like seems to be the constant. Is that just a thing that LRR fans/forum goers do? Do the IRL people do that?

I smoke. I don't always eat the right foods. And I tan indoors, which yes increases your risk for cancer but I hate when people keep telling me as if I don't know. I love to drum on things a lot and I can't not move my feet/legs most of the time. Too much caffeine maybe.

I too am a leg shaker. Its a subconsious thing and I don't notice it until someone tells me. I also am just a lazy person. I hate doing stuff.

My personal habits:

Knuckle cracking/popping
Restless leg (right)
going of on tangents (in thoughts)
not showing emotion (drives people crazy when I drive and someone cuts me off very close or something very "exciting" happens and I just sit there without moving a muscle appearing very relaxed why they nearly scream, though I really don't feel anything just adrenaline making my heart go faster, no actual emotional reaction)
making random calculations on pieces of paper while talking to someone.
having very little heating on even in winter

I don't have a whole lot but I may have the weirdest one. I have this compulsion to open cell phone battery hatches. No reason for this, and I don't take the battery out. Just open the hatch and then close it again. My friends can't leave their cell phones on the table around me else I will inevitably do it several times in a row until they take it away from me.

in increasing order of disgusting and/or irritating:

-Restless Leg

-Inappropriate Sketchbook/Notebook use (At meals, during conversation...)

-Inappropriate smart Phone use (At meals, during conversation...)

-Fidgeting

-"The plight of the internet"

-Arm Stretching/Dislocation (double jointed/really disconcerts some people)

-I used to, but no longer, picked at my gums with toothpicks, hygiene picks and needles until they bled. I am so glad I stopped that.

-Scab/Acne picking (mostly the latter) (oh god, why can't I stop doing that!?! It makes me glad I don't have bad facial acne, but my upper arms are pock marked)
Time flies when I launch grandfather clocks from my trebuchet.

Moisturise moisturise moisturise.

---

I shake my leg a lot.

That's pretty much the only one I define as a bad habit. Weird ones though...

I often burst into song when I'm bored.

I dance when I feel like it, even if there is no music.

I sometimes keep windows open in the winter, too cool all of my PC's (building is a habbit of mine) it drives people crazy when they visit. Sometimes I chew twist-ties or the cap of my thumbdrives, I think all of them have tooth marks on them by now, I also eat fast food alot, strangly enough I am considered underweight (as mentioned I only eat one meal a day typicaly). I also tend to get very little sleep, like 4-5 hrs a night, but never get work done until the last second, especially now with ME2. In short I have A LOT of bad habbits, but I don't drink or smoke! :)

I crack my knuckles and drum on things.

But when I'm feeling awkward, I'll play with my hair, stretch, pull faces, and overuse eyebrow movement.
