11 Things All Nail Biters Know Too Well

You are probably doing it right now, aren't you?


As a chronic nail biter myself, I know I have experienced all of these. Other nail biters should relate to most of them. From having short nails to always getting sick, these should relate to anyone else who chomps down.

Always having short nails.

Unless I have acrylics on, I cannot think of the last time I had to cut my fingernails.

When you have acrylics on everything feels... weird.

I have acrylics on right now, longer than I have ever had, and it feels so weird typing.

If you have acrylics, you'll still try to chew them off.

A $60 manicure, and yet you still have that primal urge? Same though.

Your nail tech will yet at you.

"Anna, why do you keep biting your nails?"

"Honestly, I don't know. I can't stop."

Bleeding cuticles.

If you are also a cuticle biter/picker, you will constantly have hangnails and sore cuticles. They look gross and feel grosser.

People always say, "Get your hands out of your mouth."

*ThAnKs MoM i KnOw*

Always getting sick since you didn't listen to the people mentioned above.

Hmmmm..... I wonder why I constantly have colds. *bites fingers on hand that just touched a desk six students have already sat at*

The need to bite when you are stressed.

Long car ride...Bite

Exam... Bite

Studying... Bite

Worried about your life after college, and your existence... you guessed it!

You have done it as long as you can remember.

Ever since you have had teeth, you have memories of chomping down on those nails.

 You probably do it when you're deep in thought.

When you are reading or pondering about what you are going to eat when you get home from work, you probably have your hand in your mouth.

 In your family, there are either people who are as bad as you, or hate it.

Half of your family does it religiously, the other half wishes you would stop leaving your clippings around the house.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
