My Obsessive Compulsive Issues
Calm down everyone, I don't really have OCD (**I don't think**). But I have noticed that I am incredibly obsessive about certain things. And in my humble opinion, I think most people probably have it effect something in their lives.
In my case, I have a thing. About wrapping paper. Wrapping ribbons. The whole NO TAPE SHOWING. Creasing the edges and corners. Folding edges under. Such a perfectionist that it takes me 30 to 45 minute to wrap one present. Yes, THAT obsessed. For something that a person will destroy within 20 seconds. I know, it's crazy.
I am constantly buying new paper even though I already have 20 at home. I don't use the sub-par plastic-y ribbon that curls oh-so-well. I must have the fabric ribbon. and I have so much of it, it is overflowing the box I have alotted for such trimmings. If I use a bow, it can't be lop-sided or have creases. (without a spot or wrinkle haha I crack myself up!)
Now that I've told you about my obsession, what are some of yours? Does it bug you that something that is seemingly unimportant to everyone else has to be "just-so" for you? Or do you think that everyone else is crazy for not being like you?
