    Scary =/

    I Love Batman But Not Bats

    As for me I never liked Bats, not sure why but I always was not to fond of them. In other words I'm scared of them, because I know for a not so fun fact they carry disease with them. And I don't want to be bitten by one and turn into some vampire going around giving people...

    I don't really believe I'll be single forever, but my only issue is that I'm kind of afraid to date someone scared of rejection but if I get over that I will be fine.

    If truth be told, I have in fact realised, recently, that I am, a little afraid of clowns, some of them, not all. I do maintain, however, that I am not racist.
