Yes - foraging level 10 + eating a survival burger = 4 berries per bush. :cool:

(Basically I just like collecting stuff.)
When passing by, I still collect Berries no matter what but I don't chase after them any more as I simply don't have enough time in game to do the one project I can actually remember. Getting distracted by Berries will result in less project done and likely forgetting project completely for 3 more days and Bobbi sitting in bed on Spring 19 and Fall 12 with a

Huh, now what?

look on her face.

If there happen to be forgeables (usually flowers) that spawned in the cemetery/graveyard, I'll always leave them untouched.
Though I can relate to many habits noted in this thread, this one surprised me: I find it touching. :smile:
Every time I dig up something (artifact spot, ginger, etc), I'll always pickaxe the hole to bury it back. I don't like leaving dug holes all over
- I also do that though the main reason is to maximize the amount of spawn points for artifact spots in the area.
- I always use the same colours code for my chests for all my farmers though there's no real reason for it aside from laziness.
- I always dig through the museum and blacksmith shop trash cans when I'm near them.
- I always plant tree seeds/saplings in a seemingly-random pattern rather than aligned. Grown trees must look like a forest, not an orchard.

Some of mine:

- I name my animals by typing random gibberish on the keyboard until I get something satisfying
- I refuse to deliberatly let myself pass out unless in very specific circumstances and usually teleport home way before I'm even close to
- I go to bed between around 10 to 11pm (IRL I go to bed at 11 and wake up at 9 (when insomnis is not messing my sleep schedule), I cannot fathom how someone even virtual could go on with only 4 hours of sleep. Sleep is important guys!)
- I systematically max-heart everyone, even the NPCs I don't like
- On my perfection farm, I had the exact same routine every single morning (except on dungeon days): wake up, watch daily luck and weather, kiss spouse, grab coffee in the coffee maker, go check casks cause I can never remember when they're due, teleport to front porch, move down to check the crops and orchard, move up left to the animals, then the fishponds, then left to the greenhouse, then the keg shed, then the cave if I feel like it, give the cat some water, and now I'm back at my porch and can go on my day.

Mine is a little weird, and more linked to my OCD than anything else, but if I talk to an NPC and they give me repeating dialogue (Gus is a good example), even if I know that the dialogue is gonna repeat, I talk to them twice just to make sure I'm not missing anything. Yes, this means that I do dread all my saloon visits, since a lot of the characters in there have repeating dialogue. I will also attempt to talk to characters even if I remember talking to them earlier, just in case I'm misremembering.

I used to be really obsessive about the social aspect in the game. I really love all the NPCs and getting to know them remains one of my favourite parts of the game. I talked to everyone whenever I could, never missed a birthday, stuff like that. I've gotten better and learned to focus more on other aspects of the game, but I still get a little worried about missing dialogue for some reason!

I do exactly this, too. To the point I'll skip the Saloon on Friday evenings as I just know I'll be in there for far too long and forget what I was trying to do before entering.

Quirks I share with other posters:
-I can’t abandon my horse, he requires no other care the least I can do is ride him home
-I Always kiss my spouse (unless they escape the house early while I’m filling casks)
-I harvest every torch from the mines (and I use ‘em)
-I gotta check the traveling cart each and every time
-Always check the daily fortune so I can maximise returns when mining, fishing or weed wacking

My own weirdness:
-I keep a journal so I can do ALL THE THINGS
-I place a torch near every foraged item and artifact spot—I can forage at night now and Stardew Valley positively glows
-I complete every job a townsperson requests
-I always give the cheapest gifts possible while still maximising friendship points

Quirks I have given up on:
-watering my dog/cat everyday, I take mad advantage of their unconditional love but wish I had to water my horse too
-harvesting every berry bush, I can’t go out of my way anymore after I spent hours doing this and passed out
-talking to everyone I see and visiting the wizard when I’m near

Haha, I'm guessing you've played a lot of rpg games in the past?
