    I just hope all of you know that I wrote in a phobia into my chem paper, which had NOTHING to do with it, but i made it work . it's funny.
    everytime i write a paper i purposely find the most random off topic thing and work it into my paper. its pretty fun.

    I'M IMPRESSED Alliance. You are quite scared.
    Well , I can't really judge. i mean come on, I'm a person who has one email containing the word "fearless" , so I can't relate to many of these phobias.
    Ah well.

    I'm scared of many things, but they're not out of control. Most of them, at least.
