Day 16: Fears & Phobias
I think it goes without saying that losing my loved ones is my biggest fear in the world, and I don’t even want to think about it. Instead, I’m going to post some more “light-hearted” or unusual phobias that I have…
1. Lakes / Murky Water
Even if I turn the page of a National Geographic and there’s a murky underwater shot on the next page, it gives me the shivers. It doesn’t make sense because I’m an avid swimmer, but the thought of what could be lurking in the depths gives me chills to the core. Lakes always seem a particularly murky spot. When I was a kid, I went on a camp that involved a lot of lake-time. We were told there were eels in the lake that would bite… I think that contributed to this phobia.
2. Accidentally Sending Emails/Texts To The Wrong Person
I am constantly living in fear of sending my academic supervisor an email ending with an ‘x’.
3. Accidentally Liking A Facebook Photo While Creeping
I once accidentally tagged myself in the photo of an acquaintance, while creeping on their page. To make matters worse, I wasn’t actually in the photo and the person I accidentally clicked to tag as me was them. To say I nearly threw my laptop out the window is an understatement. They won’t know so long as I blocked them, right?…… Don’t look at me like that, you do it too!
What are your more unusual fears or phobias? Any social media related ones?
