Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Novel Heartbeat.
I am absolutely terrified of spiders. This summer, I slept in my living room for TWO months because a spider egg hatched in my room and there were a billion little baby spiders everywhere. It was a nightmare. I was an emotional mess at first. I cried. A lot. And I totally flipped out and would not even walk by my room.
Everything is better now, though. I am sleeping in my room and I haven’t seen a spider in two weeks (thanks to this fantastic spider spray stuff that is supposed to kill them- also totally safe by the way).
Bugs generally freak me out. Ants, beetles, ladybugs, moths, mosquitos, flies, grasshoppers, etc. I will spaz if any are even brought too close to me. I’m not even kidding, I just can not handle being around any type of bug.
One time, a grasshopper ended up in the pant leg of my jeans while I was walking my dog and I don’t think I’ve ever taken pants off faster than I did that day. There may have also been screaming.
I get a little awkward around strangers. I don’t know if it’s a fear, really, but I just absolutely hate meeting new people. It’s not the people part, just the new part, that bothers me. Once the I’ve met and gotten used to a person, everything is fine. I’m a bit anti-social, maybe?
It’s the total opposite on the internet, though. Odd, huh?
Letting people down is something that really bothers me, like I’m afraid to disappoint people. If someone expects something of me, I will do my very best to meet those expectations (unless they’re bad things…) This typically only goes for people who are important to me, but I even feel pressured to meet expectations of teachers, friends, and even people I don’t know (like those who read this blog, for example).
I think that’s pretty much all of my fears. At least, my current ones anyway. I used to be afraid of the dark and of ghosts and other countless things. I’ll probably gain new fears as I get older, too.
