Nervous Habits?

What kinds of nervous habits do you have? (Everyone has at least one.) Have you tried to break the habit? Did you pick up another afterwards?

I used to chew on my nails long ago. I gnaw my lip now when I'm stressed. I also like to rub my fingertips on a folded corner -- of paper, fabric, satin, whatever. It's soothing somehow. I also fold paper to keep my fingers busy (I love origami)

How tough is it?

Ok.. so I've been thinking about learning to play the guitar (acoustic) and I'm wondering where to start...

First - no, I do not have a guitar. :) Are those small, student guitars any good?
Second - yes, I can read music. I can play the piano and the flute and while I haven't touched either in over 8 years, I don't think it would be too tough to re-associate myself with it.
Third - I have small hands and have always wondered if they're too small for guitar. They're not freakishly small or anything (I can span an octave on the piano).

(no subject)

Does anyone know of anywhere online that I can get math problems involving systems of linear equations, preferably ones that have row/diagonal dominance? I'm writing this silly system solver program for Numerical Methods, and I just realized I have nothing to test it with!
