    Still Scared

    Even though I am a grown up there is one thing that still terrifies me to this day and that is the dark, to the point that I still sleep with a nightlight. I know it sounds sad but it's true. Back when I was in England, I used to be afraid that something was going to get me...

    I Hate The Dark

    Believe Or Not
