I have three main fears: 1. Spiders 2. Aliens 3. Social Situations. When I was really little (probably somewhere between three and five) I was spending the night at my Aunt Karen's house. I don't remember what the movie was but it was about these little green alien guys. In the movie the alien's were nice but in one scene a lady opens the curtains to look out her bedroom window that was on the second story and an alien is looking back at her hanging in mid air. That did it, from then on I have been terrified of aliens. So why, you might ask, am I watching a show called UFO Hunter's? I couldn't really give you a good answer. Maybe because Russ likes it or maybe because I think it will help me get over my fear. We watched three episodes on Saturday night and I have been scared to be alone in the house ever since. It did not help me get over my fear it only intensified it. Bleh.
