A friend of mine one told me (and I'm not sure if it was an insult or not) that I had an obsessive compulsive disorder. It was back in the days that my topic of discussion revolved solely around Ghost Rider. Looking back on it now, I can't disagree with his observations.
My mind does work in a compulsive way and there's no hiding that. I don't however consider this to be a disorder in anyway though. I just happen to obsess over things. Yes, it may be to an extreme of it dominate every ouch of my being, but that doesn't mean there's something disorderly going on. I just obsess. Compulsively.
I figured out today that this is what my blog is; a reflection of my obsessions. Most people would refer to similar items as hobbies or interests, but most people aren't me. I have interests, but they are not broad categories. People like comics. I like Ghost Rider. People like music, I like Pearl Jam. People read, I read Stephen King. Catch what I'm saying here? Where the obsession comes in is the fact that I bounce from item to item and find myself absorbed into each, not ever letting that focus shift... until the compulsion to move along to another obsession kicks in.
