I had to do the routine twice every night. If I didn't do it twice, then a monster would appear somewhere in my room and attack me in my sleep. Silly, huh? Good thing I don't still do this...

    And now I'm somehow better.

    For some reason,I have developed a liking for certain numbers,examples:

    1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11,13,16,17,19,20...etc...

    I dont know why,but,i like doing things in the sequence of those numbers.Like,if i were to eat a bag of cookies,i would eat the number of the examples shown.I would also make sure that a certain number was left in the bag...

    it also have to do with the fact that i prefer even numbers than odd numbers.The number 5 used in the example may not be an even number,but if you do 3+2,it equals 5 and includes an even number,and if you also multiply it by even numbers,the result is more even numbers ...

    Stuff like throwing salt when i drop it, walking around ladders, avoiding walking on cracks in the sidewalk..

    But to be fair i just do it only if it isnt too much trouble, i also have a weird fondness for the number 21 and used to fall asleep with my covers over my head each night to protect myself from monsters

    And how could i forget knocking on wood, probably the superstition i do the most often

    By design humans use logic to reach a logical end of their nonlogical desires. Of course, one may attempt to make these nonlogical inputs consistent with each other, but in that task one also runs the risk of falling into a circular train of rationalization.

    Personally, I prefer to eat foods in servings of prime numbers. (IE: Eat 17 crackers at a time)
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    I make a wish for every fallen eyelash. Ive spent more pennies than i can account for in lost fountains. Sometimes i see a person and if i get the wrong vibe off them i will never trust them. When i enter a tunnel i hold my breath, close my eyes and make a wish (its convenient that i dont drive).

    I am certain there is a ghost that lives in my bookshelf, thats why i moved to my sisters bedroom. I read signs into certain things like the morning i woke up next to a dead lizard and decided for good on moving to Argentina.
    I would eat an artichoke down to its heart,
    then feed the heart to him.
    It was enough that he was not you and utterly foreign,
    related to no one. So easy to love.

    Don't forget about 12:34! You can't make a wish on both in the same night though. That's bad luck.

    I do this one. Only when I look at the clock and it happens to be 11:11 will I make a wish. No waiting for it to roll around.

    I knock on wood as to not jinx myself, stuff, people, situations.

    Picking up pennies has been a habit since I was a little girl. Only if it's heads up tho.

    "Find a penny pick it up and all the day you'll have good luck."
    You can't always do it right, you can always do what's left.

    Thoughts rearrange. Familiar now strange. All my skin is drifting on the wind.~
