    Saturday April 16, 2011...an Ef-3 Twister Strikes

    My worst nightmare. The sound,

    size, shape, color and sheer force of these things are always creeping up in my dreams. The sound and size is bad enough, but the thought that you can't do anything about these monsters is truly terrifying. In 1997, when I was two, my family moved to Michigan. This was a huge...

    Dude They Freak Me Out

    Just seeing one, even on TV, scares me.  Those sumbitches can do some real damage and never wanna meet one.

    I Live In The Midwest

    In the midwest and there are usually ten signs of tornados in the summer. I am scared that they'd come and ruin my house that I have only had since the end of 6th grade. I don't want it to ruin all of the things I have worked so hard to forget.

    it makes sense. rejection, heartbreak, loss. they're the most painful emotions. love ends up giving you those more often than not. I'm scared to love. love has ruined me.
