My OCD Habits

Well, once again it's time for the 52-week blogging challenge. Today's prompt is "My OCD Habits." Just to be OCD about making sure you know what that means, "OCD" is "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder." OCD can be a serious problem, and affect people so much they can't live a normal, enjoyable life.

But in pop culture it has turned into anything someone is obsessive about, like cleanliness or making sure their books on the shelf are in alphabetical order.

I'm OCD about two things: my computer and my cars. I look at some people's home screens on their computers and it's covered with icons, might even have a file or three there, and it drives me nuts. I currently have 10 icons on my computer screen. They are all lined up neatly on the left side of the screen.

Most everything on my computer is in a directory (now called "folders"). I do have some things that defy catigorization just in documents. But the vast majority of things are organized into folders. Or sub folders. Or sub-sub folders.

The other thing I'm OCD about is my cars and keeping them clean. I have one car that I don't drive if it's snowing or even raining if I can help it. And if the weather is nice, I wash my cars' exteriors about once a week. I have them detailed in the spring (especially the one that does get driven in the snow). I am also a bit OCD about maintenance.

But if you looked at my office, you'd know I'm not OCD about neatness It's a mess.

What are you ODC about. Comment below.
