Weird things happening to me after finishing NGE/EoE

Let's just say I can't stop thinking about the whole thing and I'm starting to see things everywhere. I swear I'm not hallucinating, just an overactive imagination.

List of weird things:

Saw Subaru dealership while driving home and the logo had sideways crosses just like Eva.

There are grey scratches at the bottom of the tea cup I drank from this morning. My mind etched the scratches out to be a sketch of Rei's hair and my crazy mind drew the rest of the picture. A hand-drawn Rei was staring right back at me as I finished the last drop of my tea.

Was watching a South Asian drama and two guys decide to lay down on some train tracks. I thought, "That's something Shinji would do" and "Whatever they're thinking (like I'm not worth it, I don't deserve to stay around), that's what Shinji would be thinking"

Also same drama: two women say several times to each other over the phone, "Apni ke?" aka "Who are you?" aka "Anata wa dare?" aka flashback to Rei's inner thoughts.

I looked out the window into the backyard today and my crazy brain started creating illusions of the pilots standing on the grass outside.

Every time I speak I feel like my voice sounds like some hybrid of Megumi Hayashibara and Ogata. Every time I open my mouth I hear Rei or Shinji speaking omg.

Feel like I'm officially in a weird state and I had to write this here so I can try getting it out of my thoughts.

Yeah once I finished eva I started seeing it everywhere as well. It's weird but you'll get over it.

the prophecy is true
The wish for respectability, observed spiritual teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti, is the greatest deterrent to selfhood and progress.

That is hilarious. I already feel like a magician. Although, if this worked, I would have been accepted to Hogwarts when I was 11, or whatever the school is here in the US from that sitty prequel thing, but I digress.

As for the OP, After I watched NGE and NTE the first time, I had dreams, and then started writing a fic based off of what I remembered of those dreams. It'll eventually work out of your system.

Basically the moment I was past my second sitting (aka episode 17 or somewhere around that point), I started seeing NGE related stuff in absolutely anything.
Blue car with a white number plate? Unit 00 Kai, no doubt.
Eurasian coot? Sachiel.

And it only got worse once I finished the rebuild movies

Once you're heavily invested in/freshly finished with a series, it's really hard not to associate things around you with it. The characters and questions posed for the fans to solve and debate flood my head at random sometimes, even without prompting or anything to trigger that train of thought. It's a really strange thing - Shows can change you like that man!
What will be will be.
