Julia: The Woes of CDO

What is CDO? It's like OCD, except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

I like when things repeat in patterns. Am I the only one?

Rising order, descending order, symmetrically, or even in defined increments. All fine.

What ‘things’ am I speaking of that must repeat as such, you ask? Anything, I answer. Shapes, objects, numbers, people.
Yes. To answer your inevitable question, people can, in fact, repeat in patterns.
If you neither understand nor empathize with this situation, then congratulations, you don’t have OCD.

Nevertheless, I will elaborate. Come along with me; come upon this ride of example.
I am a girl scout (HA, fucking HA—I’m getting into a good college) and recently embarked upon the gold award mission. The number our troop (yes, there are more of us) was originally assigned was 2881. This number gives me the chills just writing it. Yes, we’ve established that I am insane. So anyway, I could not, would not have this absolute travesty of a number, 2881 *heebie jeebies occur*, continue to… be. What I see when I look at this number is—even, middle, middle, odd—I tilt my head due to the asymmetrical imbalance of it all.

FYI – Our number is now 2884. This is acceptable. Although 2882 would have been orgasmic, 2884 is acceptable.

That is all.
