Day 4: Something you are OCD about

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder or also known as OCD  is an anxiety disorder characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions). With obsessive-compulsive disorder, you may realize that your obsessions aren't reasonable, and you may try to ignore them or stop them. But that only increases your distress and anxiety. Ultimately, you feel driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease your stressful feelings.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder often centers around themes, such as a fear of getting contaminated by germs. To ease your contamination fears, you may compulsively wash your hands until they're sore and chapped. Despite your efforts, thoughts of obsessive-compulsive behavior keep coming back. This leads to more ritualistic behavior — and a vicious cycle that's characteristic of obsessive-compulsive disorder. There's a difference between being a perfectionist and having obsessive-compulsive disorder. Obsessive-compulsive disorder can be so severe and time-consuming that it literally becomes disabling.

I think I am an OC person but not to a point that it is already a disorder. Okay, perfectionist will be a better term. 
So, what's my OCNESS all about? Blue ballpen, handwriting, and color coding
I was out last night with some friends when I asked if someone has a blue ballpen. Mac handed me ballpen and i grabbed it, wrote down on the tissue paper only to find out it's has black ink. I told Mac, "sis, it's black" I returned the ballpen to her and asked if Dearden has a blue ballpen. He asnwered, I don't have a ballpen with me" So I ended up looking through my bag. Luckily, I found my blue ballpen or else I won't be able to write.
Yes, I use Blue ballpen as my "main" pen color.

Another thing about my handwriting is,  I know my penmanship not nice. Okay, I admit that, however there are few things that I want. It has to be neatly done, no erasures or else, I will be writing the whole page all over again. Whiteout is not welcome. 
Lastly, I don't just color code my files, I also color code the way I write.

And yes, I have different notebooks. One for my journal, another one for my daily to do's and personal errands, another one for my to do's at work
