You might be crazy if you got really excited when you read this headline. Or you just might be curious. I think deep down, we all have those quirks that set us apart from our peers. We all have those "special things" about us. I've done a few crazy things in my life, most of which I will never repeat simply because it's not worth it. It was fun once, but you won't be seeing me doing it again. I'm sure you have your own list of weird things you've done before. Below is a short list of mine. Enjoy for your own amusement.

You might be crazy if you wash your face with toothpaste.

I've actually done this a couple of times. It's refreshing. Just don't get the toothpaste in your eyes. It stings.

You might be crazy if you check your alarm 15 times before going to bed.

A little over a year ago I overslept my alarm and was almost an hour late for work. I don't know if I just set my alarm wrong or what, but ever since then I've set two alarms every single night of the week and check them again and again before I go to bed. I'm neurotic.

You might be crazy if you drink 4 giant cups of coffee on the daily (this doesn’t include cups of tea).

I know some people drink more than this, but most folks I talk to are surprised to find out that I drink several cups a day. I just LOVE coffee. I love the smell, the taste, and the fact that when I drink it I feel ready to take on the world!

You might be crazy if you “accidentally” found out the schedule of the guy you have a crush on and know exactly where he’s going to be every moment of the day.

Not gonna lie, this is pretty embarrassing. I've done this a couple of times

You might be crazy if you stand when you eat, instead of sitting down.

I don't know what it is exactly. I just prefer to stand. Don't worry, though, you won't see me standing at a restaurant or when I'm over at someone's house for dinner. I sit like everybody else. Standing would be weird, duh.

You might be crazy if you listen to disco music to help yourself fall asleep at night.

I don't like soft, slow music when I'm trying to fall asleep. It's backwards, I know.

You might be crazy if you tried flushing the toilet paper tube down the toilet when you were well past the age of “just seeing what happens.”

Now this one I can't really justify. It just sort of happened. I don't know what went through my head, but I thought it'd be fun to see what happened. Nothing cool happened, I'll tell you that.

You might be crazy if you love Mondays.

It's true, I LOVE Mondays. It's the start of a whole new week. Let's go!

You might be crazy if you tell yourself that you aren't crazy.

Photo by Julian Paul

I've actually stopped telling myself this. There was no point in repeating something that wasn't true.

You might be crazy if your whole family tells you you're crazy.

Photo by Kal Visuals

Yes, my whole family tells me I'm a little strange. Because I am.

You might be crazy if you read this and agree with all of it.

100% agree.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.

7 Ways You Can Safely Attend A Protest In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Wear a mask, but speak up.

It seems like coronavirus (COVID-19) has been around forever now. Life before masks and with public sporting events is a distant memory, hoping to make a comeback sometime this year. We've all had to make some sort of life changes to abide by this pandemic's rules. But that doesn't mean everything has stopped. On May 25, George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking a cry for justice and racial equality across the nation.

For the last week, protests have taken place in major cities like New York City, LA, DC, Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Dallas, and Floyd's hometown of Minneapolis. Many of the cities experiencing protests have begun phased reopening, while others (specifically New York City and LA) have yet to begin phase one of post-coronavirus reopening.

As COVID-19 is hardly in our rearview mirror, there are extra precautions protestors can take as they advocate for justice.
