So I’m back at work today! It’s been a fun 2 weeks off but now I’m back, so let’s talk about day 6: What are you afraid of?
I have talked about this a little bit in a previous post about my likes and dislikes, however I will expand on some of them here and say some more.
Ones that I have previously mentioned are the ocean, bugs, and birds. So these are my top 3. I have recently watched The Meg at the cinema (the movie about the giant shark) and that has really not helped my fear of the ocean and everything in it. Bugs are something that has always scared me. Even though I know that spiders are most likely not going to hurt me, I am still terrified of them. I will not touch them, look at them or go near them, no matter how small they are. As for birds, I am not that scared of them, but they are definitely something that I do not like.
The dark. Now for this one I suppose it’s less of the dark and more about what I cannot see. I was home alone for a week while my housemate was on holiday. This has not bothered me other than late at night when I’m turning off all the lights to go to bed and I can see shadows from the street lights outside and I can hear noises. It really puts me on edge to the point where I am constantly looking at my bedroom door when I’m trying to go to sleep.
Being yelled at. I have never been a rebel. I was always a goody-two-shoes at school and, to be honestly, I still am. Some of my friends would try to encourage me to skip class or to lie to my parents and go somewhere. However, I was always really worried about getting caught, it is all I can think about when doing something I shouldn’t I probably shouldn’t care as much as I do. Even now, if I do something wrong at work I get really anxious about owning up as I am worried I will be yelled at.
Obviously horror movies are going to be on this list. I love going to the cinema to see a scary movie, although I spend most of my time trying to look away or covering my ears. I went to the cinema to see Annabelle: Creation when it was out and it was honestly the most intense and stressful movie I have seen there.
I really, really don’t like small spaces. I need enough room to be able to move about. If I cannot then I start to freak out a bit. I always take the stairs instead of going in the lift because the thought of going in an area that small and getting stuck scares me massively.
So these are some of the things that I am afraid of, there are probably a lot more than this but these are just the highlights.
