I Have A Habit Of Locking Doors Even If I Am Home Alone

    Better Safe Than Sorry

    I am a reader, and I've read many times in magazines about people not locking their doors, then surprise surprise, there is an intruder in their house. I do not want that to happen to me, so I lock my doors. Call it paranoid, I call it being safe!

    Why would I go out when all my friends are right here? Why use up energy when I can lay down and relax? I spend so so much time home alone anyway, so Imma used to it :P
