10 Day "You" Challenge - Day 3

Time for day 3 of the "you" challenge, and today's category is eight fears.

Fear 1 - heights, most definitely. This is a weird one for me. I am terrified of heights, in a way in which it makes me feel dizzy and that I'll fall over if I go too close to the edge of something. I always get scared I'm going to get this sudden urge to just jump over the barrier, or that it's going to disappear and I'll fall over. I'm terrified, but for some reason I love rollercoasters? Strange.

Fear 2 - spiders, horrible creatures. I hate, hate, hate spiders, with a passion. I can't stand to be in the same room as one, and I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if there was one in my bedroom. I have a glass sitting in my room beside the door that's only purpose to catch one should it decide to pay a visit. I feel bad, but I'm then too scared to release them because I'm convinced it's going to escape from the glass and crawl up my arm. I'll leave it between a glass and magazine and drag it out into the bathroom.

Fear 3 - scary movies, not for me. I refuse to watch any film which is even remotely scary. My friend once made me go to see the Amityville Horror in the cinema whenever the recent version came out. To this day I'm still afraid to be awake at 3:15am.

Fear 4 - ghost trains/walks, in connection with the above. Whenever I went to Universal Studios in California in November, the first 'ride' we came across was House of Horrors. Having not really looked in this, and thinking because a lot of kids visited this park, I didn't think it would be scary. Worst. Idea. Ever. I ended up nearly ripping the arm off my boyfriends jacket I was that terrified because I hate anything jumping out at me or coming close to me.

Fear 5 - early morning walks, in the dark. I hate starting work at 6am. The walk down to work is one of the most terrifying experiences and I detest it. If I ever just disappear and you hear of a girl from Belfast getting kidnapped in the early hours of the morning, you heard it here first!

Fear 6 - people dying, but not me. I'm not afraid of death when it comes to myself, it's not something I ever really think about to actually be scared. However, a fear of mine is that everyone else will die before me, and I'll be without the ones I care about. I couldn't imagine ever being without my family.

Fear 7 - failure, an obvious one. I think most people are afraid of failure so I'm just going to throw that in there. I don't want to feel like I've failed at life, I want to do well and have a good job which I feel happy in.

Fear 8 - dropping my iPhone down the toilet, depressing. I thought I'd end on a light hearted fear because everything above is much too serious. I'm actually terrified that this is going to happen to me since it's happened to other people I know. I love my iPhone and it has told me it doesn't want to drown.

Decided not to add any photographs into this post because I'm talking about my fears, and these aren't exactly things I want to look at, nevermind read about! I'm sorry if this ruins it for you and makes it harder/more boring to read. 


  1. 1, 6, and 7. You took the words right out of my mouth! Heights terrify me yet I'll still willingly go onto the tallest roller coaster in America and have fun! It's crazy haha

    1. Haha, it's crazy! I've been on so many rollercoasters and enjoyed myself, and I've forced myself onto waterslides that are so high up (and nearly passed out on the steps on the way up) but I just can't get over this fear!
