    Scary =/

    My fear started when I was little girl. When i was 3, a bat was in my house just flying around and it kept coming dangerously close to my head. I've been scared of them ever since. Even seeing the plastic ones at halloween time scare me.

    I'm afraid I'll get pressured to live a life I don't desire when I can be doing something else. I'm also afraid I'll regret not being forced into a lifestyle. It's complicated.
