Uneven

I have some strong fascination with odd numbers. 

I don’t know if I can call it a ritual or superstitious belief but they are special to me. When my actual fascination (or obsession ) with them had exactly begun, I can’t remember anymore. All I know is I got to incorporate them with anything and everything I do. 

For example: the number of tags I attached with every post I make here in my blog are all odd digits. If I happen to forget or make a mistake counting the words, I will not rest until I set them straight. That’s how bad it is. Doing exercise, buying vegetables, decorating a place (I know that in design there is a rule concerning odd numbers when grouping or making a vignette to achieve a more pleasing to the eye, visually stronger cohesive look for maximum impact) planting in the garden, flower arranging, chewing my food; name it I will find a way to include the use of odd numbers in practically every task I perform. I know it is crazy and obsessive but I can’t help it. It is stronger than me.

Please don’t try to apply RCA (root cause analysis) method on this habit of mine because I already ruled out possible psychological issue regarding this matter. There is simply none. If there is an underlying factor, believe you me, I have already found it by now. It’s just like the way it is. Okay, I’m a bit of an OCD and perfectionist but I don’t see any connection between these things. I just love odd numbers, that’s all…

  1. OCD can greatly influence your love of odd numbers. It’s probably why it’s not just a decorating choice, but how many times you chew your food and why you get anxious about the tags. I am an evens girl myself, but it’s not as strict as yours. I just consider even numbers to be more symmetrical and easier to remember. Like 10 push-ups or two scoops of icecream. That sort of thing.

    1. So, we’re opposites. Glad to know that. Most people I think are leaning towards even, like you said symmetry-which is another rule in design- easier and more straight forward choice. It’s good that people are different from each other, it maintains balance and keeps this world from being boring.

      1. It’s funny. My favorite number is an odd number, my bday is an odd month and odd day, even my address is an odd number. But I still prefer evens. Lol.

      2. Again mine is the opposite of yours. I was born on August 26, A middle child in a broad of 8 and have 4 sisters. I have two kids and I’m going golden this year. And still I’m fascinated with odd numbers. 😀
