Interesting quirk I’ve noticed about myself and I don’t know if it’s just a personal thing or maybe it’s an OCD learned behavior but I love puzzles. I love doing puzzles alone, big puzzles just yano just always trying to challenge my brain. I’m currently doing a 1000 piece library themed puzzle, it’s wonderful. Anyways though, I find that when I do puzzles I have this feeling that I have to complete it in one go. That I can’t take a break no matter how big the puzzle is. Don’t get me wrong I do end up taking breaks but it takes my brain a lot of convincing. I’ll tell myself one more piece and then it’s break time and then I’ll put the piece down and think that piece didn’t feel right. It didn’t feel like the ‘break’ piece so I have to keep going. Just makes me giggle to think about how I do that, idk I never get relief from the puzzle until I finish it. Like my brain makes it that the ‘break’ piece has to be the final piece.

I love puzzles too! I also do that mental bargaining where I’m like one more piece then I can have a break or at 3:32 I can take a break lol it’s so arbitrary but yes I do this too

Puzzles aren't something I enjoy. But I do this with books. "Just one more chapter" Next thing I know, the book is done and its 1 am. LOL
