Personal Habits

What are the personal habits you exhibit on a daily basis? If you could change them, what would they be? Do you enjoy your habits, are they constructive or detrimental?

My personal habits is that when I get bored, or just tired, for that matter, I tend to lurk. When I lurk, I always get a stray thought in my mind. An inquirey, if you will. So, I look it up, and along the way, I tangent. The tangent tangents, until I get bored.

For example:
I was listening to FOB music on youtube. I usually scan the comments for information relating to the song, but sometimes something else catches my interest. I saw that someone commented a smidgeon of a blog post from Pete Wentz. Out of curiosity, I tried googling their tumblr. Failed a couple times until coming to an official web page. Strolled through that, until I saw that there were more blog post website listings on the side. Clicked on one, went to a tumblr. Browsed through that, and got a notion for a query I wished to ask. I was inable, to tried hunting for other means to ask my query. Along the way I find interesting snippets of information, and expand on them while still hunting for my main reason of actually being on that site in the first place. Eventually, I post it when there were no other means to, and called it a night after listening to some more music of the same band.

I would probably change it to being something more productive rather than stalking random things. But, aside from that, I would have to say that the pursuit of knowledge in this case is rather neutral.

I know one very bad habit of mine: I sit in front of the computer continuously clicking refresh, expecting something breath-taking to happen ⊙▽⊙

...And usually... I end up wasting a lot of time that I could have been doing something else, because alas, nothing happens... ヽ(・_・;)ノ And I don't know why, but even though I know this fact, I still refresh *dies*

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
I have a habit of drinking juice and such out of the carton.

My favorite topic would have to be fantasy but I'm more than willing to take part in just about any genre.
I have a habit of selling myself short and it annoys my friends who see through it. I also have a habit of occasionally over explaining things when I shouldn't and I always feel like I must be annoying the other person, or making them think I believe they're stupid and I so don't. It's just a weird quirk and I really don't like being misunderstood. misunderstandings cause way too many problems ._.

You never have to sell yourself short in front of me, you never have to hold back what you need to say, and you will never be stupid to me! *hugs you* o(^^o)

I have a habit of keeping my gecko in my shirt to keep him warm, but forget about him when people come over, and when I got to take him out, they're all like, "WHERE THE HELL DID HE COME FROM"...and I'm like.... "MY shirt, D'uh."

I mean, obviously.

I have a habit of flipping my bangs over my face when I am embarrassed or blushing in attempts to shroud my face.

It fails.

I have a bad habit of saying how i feel by saying happy face sad face or mad face for example. YAY! we get to hang out! HAPPY FACE! The I proceed to show such face my facial expression >.<.
Then I also have a bad habit of instead of laughing like a regular person, I laugh and say LOL at the same time. No I don't say L-O-L I make it sound like a word. >.<

If I had a conversation with someone and it struck me as interesting enough, I end up repeating the conversation in my head and I end up mouthing/very quietly muttering the word. Little awkward.

When I'm upset I also repeat song lyrics from The Postal Service to distract myself so I don't start crying. And I chew on my nails and the cuticles around it... it's not the most glamorous thing, but it's just a compulsion I have. Workin on it.

I like most. However, I have found I am most comfortable with Fantasy, Sci-fi, Fandom, and Modern.
I do have some positive and negative habits. The one is wish to put in the spotlight is this: I am that friend who will always helps, but I also refuse help. =/

I have a habit of being modest. It can be both a good or bad thing for me.
