"Who Knew?"--Fears Edition

I haven't been very consistent with this, but I'm continuing my quest to let you into my mind and sharing things you may or may not know about me.  The topic this time: FEARS

I'm a pretty laid-back person, but I'm human, and I have fears.

My "silly" greatest fear (though there's nothing silly about it): When it's dark outside and the blinds on my windows are open.

I'm always scared that I will turn around and someone will be staring at me. It's a lot better now that I live on the 3rd floor.  When I lived on the ground floor or where there was a walkway outside my window, I always had to have the blinds closed as soon as it got dark! 

 Story Time...
Once when I was in high school, I was sleeping and woke up to something outside my window.  I was so scared to look out my window because it was dark outside!  I lived in the middle of nowhere, so the chances of a person standing there were not likely, but a freaky thought.  I thought it was just the wind.  I finally got up the courage to look out the window.  I peaked behind the curtain.  At first I didn't see it, but suddenly I saw movement and saw a big, black bull staring at me!  You better believe I ran upstairs to my mommy :)  Dad was out of town, so Mom and I went out and found where the bull was supposed to go and put it away.  But it was so terrifying to have something outside my window! 

My "serious" greatest fear: That I won't ever get married and have kids. 

I know people say, "Come on Shannon, of course you will get married!"  You can say that all you want, but it's still going to be a fear!

I can't believe there was a Bull outside your window. Be honest... did you pee your pants before you were able to run up to your mom?

haha...there was no peeing of the pants. It got my heart pumping, though.
