  • I am afraid of feet. I think they are disgusting, I am terrified of getting a pedi etc. I had a nightmare once where I was strapped down and people were rubbing bare feet on me. egh, Terrible.

  • I'm still slightly afraid of the dark too. But my two biggest fears are tornadoes and of an invasion (alien, zombies, other countries, etc.) I know it's strange. My parents make fun of me because when I have to go outside in the dark a look down the street and imagine an army of zombies coming towards me and I take off into a sprint towards the house. I know it's silly but I just can't help it.

  • I am afraid of being poor again. I am grateful for the time I had in college where I was FLAT BROKE, because I think it taught me to respect money and gave me a good work ethic. However, it has made me irrationally fearful of being there again, especially since I have children now. I sort of hoard money (which I know there are worse things), even though we are doing just fine and are a financially responsible two income family with a healthy savings.

    I just think the fear is unwarranted at this point. We aren't living paycheck to paycheck, and the whole point of college was to make a better life for ourselves now, which we have. It is just something that scares the bejesus out of me.
