The things are out to get me.
Speaking of which, this is a post about 5 things that absolutely, 100% utterly terrify me. I can't handle them. Please don't use this information against me. That wouldn't be kind.
1) The CU mascot, Chip:

As a little kid, I loved them. I even asked my parents how I could become a clown. I dressed as a clown for Halloween more than 3 times. However, as I grew into adolescence, the concept of clowns started to freak me out. An adult who intentionally masks their identity and hangs out with kids? Creeper-city.
3) Psychological thrillers:
I get that they're supposed to be scary, but I have nightmares about them for weeks on end. And it isn't just movies... after we read Gone Girl for the Blogger Book Club, I had nightmares about the book. Hide and Seek is the most terrifying movie I've seen in my life. Hands down.
4) The things that "could" happen while I sleep:
I am so afraid that someone is going to break in, or that there will be a fire, that it causes me to have insomnia. It isn't as bad now as when I was a kid, but it still happens. But obviously, if I can't sleep because I'm so worried, then nothing bad could EVER happen.
5) Baby weight:
There. I said it. I'm 100% terrified of gaining baby weight, and not being able to lose it afterward. I'm not even pregnant! This has been a huge worry/fear of mine for 7 or 8 years now. Especially since I realized I wasn't going to be mom-tastic before the age of 25. It isn't going to stop me from having kids, it just means this may very well turn into a neurotic "must lose the baby weight or DIE" kind of blog. I'm joking. I think.
And there you have it. 5 ridiculous fears I have. I'm a total wuss, and that's okay. What are your crazy, silly fears?
