I love thunderstorms so much....
Whenever I "feel" the electricity building in the air, it's almost like it charges me. I get this uncontrollable energy and I just go nuts running around outside with my dog xD
And when it finally starts pouring, I love to turn off all the lights in the house and completely light everything with candles.
Blackouts are so much fun (kind of blah in some ways) but I love going into the basement with my family to cool off and play games with them.
That's usually when I break out all 9 of my Tamagotchi xD
Or I just read or draw....more likely drawing though.
But what am I afraid of..?
That's a good question...
Heights I guess. When I go on a Ferris wheel, I avoid going with my cousin or sister, because if we stop near the very top, they start rocking the little seats and I get really angry. They have no idea what fear I feel. I literally feel like my insides are shriveling up. My eyes water and I start shaking. They think it's hilarious, which honest to God makes me want to hit them.
Rollercoasters are so much fun and the worst part is the top of the highest hill....going up is so terrifying.
Also being upside down is super scary. Even if I lie on my bed and let my head hang off the side, I feel my body clench with terror.....
OH and my biggest fear is deep water.
I want to be a marine biologist, go diving into the darkest, deepest unexplored waters of the world. I want to swim with Blue Whales and investigate underwater caves.
But what I hate more than anything in the world is water when I cannot see the very bottom.
That makes panic rise in me more than heights.
I went waterskiing a few weeks ago with my cousin (coincidentally the one who tries to scare the **** out of me on Ferris wheels) and I was taking my turn attempting to ski (apparently we had tied the rope too low so that's why nobody could ski). Nobody was able to ski, and I was the last person to try. The water was only 30 feet deep, but it was as black as death....Whenever I fell off the skis, I would let go of the tow rope (so my arms wouldn't feet ripped off by the boat) and I would curl up into a ball and try to float on top of my skis.
Every time I did this I reminded myself that nothing could hurt or kill me......not even the most terrifying-looking water weeds that were looming up form the depths a few feet away. Water plants scare me more than anything....I hate the idea of getting tangled in one. Drowning.
I don't like FISH being near me either. The little ones (up to 6 inches) are ok, but any bigger than that and I panic. There is no logical reasoning behind that, they just scare me.
When the boat towed the rope toward me again, I swam like no tomorrow toward it, panicking that I would never reach it.
What didn't help me was that my cousin kept saying loudly, "HEY DAD, LOOK AT THE BIG GROUP OF PLANTS AND FISH UNDER ANYA"..... they have a Fish Finder sonar....which has a screen that shows you where each and every fish and plant are in the water, and even gives a reading of how deep and how large they are. That thing scared me so much, even though I enjoyed watching the fish swim around on the sonar screen.
Oh, and the last thing that scares me are.....well, look at the thread titled "Ghosts".
