As I was opening up my computer the other morning, I needed to open my Yahoo account to check for an email. But instead of opening it first, I opened my Gmail account first. Why? Because I always open my tabs in a certain order: Gmail, Yahoo, Jenna’s Journal, Facebook. Those are the tabs that are always open. Others come and go, depending on my immediate needs. But they’re always at the far right hand side of my screen.
I looked at the screen for several seconds, that morning, trying to decide if I should just open up Yahoo. Habit prevailed.
I really am a creature of habit. It’s not a superstitious thing. I don’t think bad things will happen if I change my routine. I just prefer to do them the same way each time. I do this in my travelling: I always take the same routes to school, work, the mall. I load the dishwasher the same way each time. I use the same stall in the bathroom at work (if it’s available). LOL
Do you have a certain way of doing things, a routine that you won’t change?
