    Just Thinking About Them Makes Me Feel Bad

    Always have been. Every time I look at a roller coaster, I think of all the things that could possibly go wrong. And I get that nasty feeling you get when it feels like you're plunging to your death.  In middle school, one of my friends actually came close to breaking...

    Roller Coasters

    A very long time ago, I tried the roller coaster and also the monster (bigger), it was very very very scary and I did it.  If I would go back to an amusement park, I wouldn't be able doing it anymore, I am scared of heights.
