I was not going to write anything about Star Wars tonight. In the past 24hrs, enough has been written across the internet to fill several volumes. Last night during half-time of the Giants-Eagles game the latest trailer for the upcoming Episode VII debut and it was followed by in depth analysis', great fanfare and great disappointment. The frenzy was so much that pre-sale orders online shut down seller websites. In the event you have not seen it, he go are: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer (Official) on Disney Video As I was relaxing and thinking about what I wanted to pen this evening, I decided to go the Star Wars route. I am a Star Wars fan. I have watched all six motion pictures countless times(including Episodes I and II) and I can't wait until December 17 when the new film hits theaters. I don't feel like I am obsessed with the movie or the franchise. And that's when it hit me, why not write about obsession. The past few months, maybe years, I have noticed certain obsessions that I have a grip on. These compulsions are relatively harmless right now. Two that get me every day — I need to stir my morning hot beverage(coffee or tea) 10 times and then tap the spoon 5 times. If I accidentally over stir, I need to continue to an even number and the taps must equal half of the stirs. The second thing that gets me every day is deodorant. 7 times up and down under each arm. I also have a little obsession with patterns. I was setting up soda for an event at work and look what I did: When I showed the photo to a colleague, she commented, "Why the tabs and not the labels?" I could only respond the tabs were more visible. The last obsession that I will share tonight is my money. How do you put your money in your pocket? Is it backwards, upside down or crumbled? That drives me nuts. Money must be placed in denominational order, facing the same way and right side up. When the money is folded, the smallest bills need to be on the outside. Are these simple seemingly fascinations that we have for movies or lining up cans or stirring coffee, innocent and harmless or are they symptoms of some underly psychosis? I think the mass obsession that the public have with things like films or the Kardashians, is generally harmless. In a case like mine where I know have certain mental issues, how big are these simple obsessions? On a larger scale, the mass obsession has led to people stalking actors, breaking in to homes and much worse. But I wonder will my obsessions grow to where I will soon be experiencing full blown Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. And will OCD affect my depression? For now I have no answer, just thoughts I have in my head. What do you think about OCD and Depression? Do you have any strong feelings about Star Wars? I would love to hear from anyone. Comment below.
