"Everything's Five By Five"

Among the many symptoms that add up to my mental illnesses is a penchant for the number five. You've all seen it here many times- when I list things on the blog it needs to be in multiples of five.

Even though I fight it and try not to think about it, whenever I get to FOUR or NINE on a list something in my brain just clicks and one of The Voices will whisper to me, "You're going to add another item, right? It doesn't look right without another item on the list. ADD ANOTHER ITEM TO THE LIST."

During a casual email exchange a few weeks ago, The F$%k-It List sent me some information on the meaning behind FIVE according to a numerology chart. Some of the points made were:

You most likely have some of the following strengths and talents at your disposal if the number 5 appears in your numerology chart:

You make friends easily, you are versatile and multi-talented, upbeat and inspirational and a good communicator and motivator. You have great verbal skills and you are very dynamic, persuasive, adaptable, versatile and curious, courageous, bright and quick-witted.

Some of the following weaknesses, which are associated with the number 5, could slow down or even prevent your progress.

Most probably, only one or a few of them will belong to you:

It is difficult for you to commit to one relationship and you have difficulties to finish projects. You lack discipline and order, you are impatient, restless, easily distracted and you can be very impulsive.

You might also be susceptible to overindulgence in sensual pleasures.

Ummm... is it just me or did y'all feel a chill up your spines, too?

in my email response to The F$%k-It List I wrote:

"I've always been adamant about keeping my last name even though I despise my father's family. Could it be because it has 5 letters? *cue twilight zone music*"
