    If I had a massive ego and tiny little hands, I'd be afraid of SNL skits.

    I am going to have my first job related traveling at the end of the month. It's like two and a half days. I'm pretty nervous for a few reasons:

    01 Working on getting my 12 year old husky taken care of while I'm away.

    02 I prefer my work and personal time separated. This will present challenges to that.

    03 A myriad of food allergies. If I'm responsible for myself, I can make it work but all breakfasts and one dinner are provided by the company.

    Dough and pastry.
    So I am going to make a baguette.
    Wish me luck!
    I will conquer this fear, then eat it.
    YAR!

    I hate driving, and i hate it for the fact that it scares me...

    I'm scared either for:

    - Being hit by a reckless driver (so much of them in the city)
    - Hit somebody by accident (either persons and animals)
    - Being mugged (happens a lot in here...)

    So, yeah driving scares me a bit...

    @henryeatscereal - For real. For me, if it's not about getting hit or hitting other drivers and pedestrians and either getting seriously injured, killed or flat-out incarerated, it also has a lot to do with my fear of getting lost. It's bad enough that I have a horrible sense of direction, especially when it comes to new and unfamiliar places to start with.

    Thankfully, I live in a place where driving actually isn't a necessity due to so much public transit, but should I get around to doing it on my own, I'd most likely just stay in and very near my hometown.

    Using a public restroom, especially living in a conservative city. I keep putting off getting my carry conceal, but I really should get to it...

    All sorts of creepy-crawlies.

    The evils and horrors of anger and sadness.

    I am a bit surprised that this wasn't brought up yet. On the other hand, I guess it took me a while because I used to never have to worry about it until finally donating to ETS recently.

    Anyway. Accidentally clicking "Facepalm" instead of "Like". Thankfully, it hasn't happened... yet. But that probably means that it would be best for me to stick to PCs and laptops instead of resorting to smartphones whenever it comes to liking posts.

    Not really a little thing sometimes, nor does it scare me or bum me out all the time, but I still got to say, messing up in general.

    Whether big or small, especially in public setting online and offline, it's just very shameful and I just end up feeling very stupid. (Kind of like in a "bombing an important speech/presentation/interview" type of way. *I was always like this my entire life.*)

    I know mistakes can still be learning opportunities though. (Although mistakes are sometimes still the very worst way to learn things.) But they don't hurt any less. I suppose it still comes from me still basing who, what and how I am on what others say. I'm also still working on that yet again.

    The idea of getting my drivers license back. It's been about 5 years now since i lost it (dui) and am on the verge of getting everything sorted out. I've been kinda sandbagging it a bit the closer i get. Ill have it all but paper work done here next week. It's an odd thing.

    Mortality and the inevitability of death.
    I've had so many close friends die in the past few years and this last one pushed me over the edge.
    Now I think about the impending deaths of my loved ones and myself like literally every two hours.

    My emotions, as I still just can't trust them or rely on them at all sometimes.

    Turbulence during a flight without fail, just about each and every single time.

    Paranormal events. For example, Seeing a chair move on its own when you are the only one home is fucking terrifying. Feeling like an unseen force is watching you, taunting you...confirmation when your cat sees what you see. Fiancée is home for some of it, not all- I seem to be the target. Events have happened off/on my entire life, but activity has increased over the past 2 years. Most recently had a lot of activity in June after nothing for a few months. Lost a lot of sleep and became a nervous wreck. I'm not entirely innocent, I dabble with energy and strange things, just moved across the street from a huge old cemetery.

    I found out that 2 of my mother's relatives had cancer. Both of them had the tumors removed and are still living. You really can't waste your time on this planet. Never know when your number is gonna be up.

    That my ex's girlfriend has been following me on Twitter for years, now. It is a very vague account. I had no idea.

    i don't go into the "in the headlines" section of the board because i'm always afraid it'll make me too angry.

    but i am fucking FURIOUS right now at trump.

    i personally don't believe we should have a military, but if we do, anyone who wants to serve should be allowed. saying trans people aren't allowed to serve is tantamount to saying we're not people, and that is unacceptable. i am so afraid that we're heading toward a world where anyone who isn't cis, straight, and white is going to be rounded up into concentration camps.

    i'm aware of the history. that doesn't deflate my anger. marginalized groups being told they don't deserve rights (and those rights actually getting taken away) is fucking inexcusable.

    oh jesus. For me, the creepiest is when i see something and just as I've nervously convinced myself that it was in my head, my dog starts fucking growling at it.
