    Can't Say I Hate This Feeling At All

     A lot of things make me nervous, but I'd say the biggest thing is seeing/talking to my ex boyfriends. I would also say that, that's a good thing if they all can still make me feel nervous when I'm around them.My first love, Kevin, makes me more nervous than he'll ever know...

    Wasps get me nervous ever since I was at grade school when we had a nest in the school bell. Every year they'd come out after us as we played. One year it wouldn't leave me alone and stung me near but fortunately not on my mouth.
