    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.

    Well, that's true. I admire people who are not being afraid to just be themselves. I think that just be yourself was the best than be like other girls.
