- When I was 13 or so I used to secretly collect tennis balls. What makes it stranger is that I had no interest in tennis and I never even played the sport. I'd keep them in shoe boxes under my bed and take them out every now and then just to look at them. Any tennis balls that came over the wall into the back garden I'd add to my collection, instead of throwing them back to the neighbours. My sister did actually play tennis, but I never let her play with my balls.
- When I was a bit older, I got into playing Japanese RPGs on my Playstation. Normal enough so far, but if I was left alone in the house, I would on occasion dabble in cosplay. I can remember at least one time, where I put on my sister's jewellery, tank top and tennis skirt, grabbed a plastic sword from Hallowe'en and basically ran around the house imagining I was a Japanese princess casting spells on my enemies. (I'm cringing just thinking about this )
- Not me, but my brother when he was 16 or so would constantly wear a towel around his neck like a scarf. No matter where he went, or whatever the weather, he took his towel with him. He kept this up for about a year.
