Question Could it be OCD???

For the past couple of years, my friends and even two teachers think I have OCD. I like to organize things and in a way, it makes me feel better; it's comforting to me. I tend to pick out small details like when things aren't in place or are off by centimeters and it bothers me if I think about it too long.
When I get bored at home or school I tend to organize things depending on colour, size and item. For example, I've organized my closet from jacket to long sleeve shirt to shirts I wear at home (which are baggy), shirts for school, tank tops and my signed shirts from bands. From there I organize by colour.
If I'm bored at school, I'll clean out my backpack or organize my locker from books, size, binders and papers.
It helps me feel better. My dad always told me that organization is the key to success and I guess it kind of stuck to me.
I don't know. It's a long shot but what do you guys think???
