I imagine that characters from the books I read are real and talk to me and... stuff.

I'm still scared of the dark. Also, I'm scared of heights and dead bugs and spiders and I'm claustrophobic.

Hey I do that too sometimes! And its totally fine that you do that. I actually think its cool to have conversations with charactures from a book, like I would like to know about their adventures and stuff. But yeah, if you ever just want to have a random conversation with me I'm on nano and I would love to talk with you! <3

I genuinely dislike the sun... *Scoots over to be in the shade* I'm not afraid of it... I just really hate what it does to me. AKA, my eyes are very sensitive and I do not own good sunglasses plus I usually wear dark clothes so I tend to overheat, not to mention the fact that I prefer darkness...

I imagine that my classmates are often with me, critiquing and/or commenting on everything on everything I do, constantly! EVEN THE BOYS!!!!!!

OK maybe I am giving away too much?

Omk, Jith that's not ok. Why do you think you do that? It shouldn't matter what other people think, and its nothing to be embarrassed about! You are you, and if they have problems with that then I'll fight them for you. Your own opinion matters way more then your classmates. Listen to yourself instead of them, be who you are meant to be. I have voices that put me down too, but I don't let them change me. And it's perfectly normal that you have that, but just know that you are loved as who you are and you should never make decisions based on how you think your friends would react.

A couple months ago I accidentally called my English teacher Mama. She didn't hear but some other kids did. Embarassed

I used to imagine that a woman in my head was narrating my life out as a book. It was pretty cute, actually.

Haha, I’m still scared of the dark as well, and I’m 16. Fleet, your phobias are nothing to be embarrassed about, everyone has them. I’m afraid to be alone. I don’t know exactly what the correct term for that is but it’s my phobia. I’m also extremely terrified of ants. Just ants, I can do any other type of bug except ants. Even the name is making my skin crawl *shudders*. I also have a friend who’s terrified of ladybugs! And it’s nothing she’s embarrassed about, either.

Well, when I'm alone on a floor and no one else is there, I hear noises and imagine crazy things happening, like in books. It's freaky!

I'm also pretty afraid of the dark. When I'm walking through the dark dining room to get upstairs, I RUN very very very fast becase of what might be lurking there/I really don't know.

@(I'm so sorry I forgot who exactly it was) that mentioned they called their teacher Mama - don't care about what they think of you. Just laugh and make a joke out of it. It's okay to laugh at yourself - it's good for you actually. I've called my teachers Mommy plenty of times (and imagine it's the math teacher that everyone dislikes very strongly. Plus she's a very old grandma. XD)

Where do I begin??

Well, for starters, my voice cracked during one of my solos in rehearsal the other day. Might not seem that bad, but I was incredibly embarrassed.

The other day, I was at a sleepover with some of my friends, and we were making Rice Crispy Treats. When we were pouring the concoction into a pan to freeze, I asked "Wait... aren't you supposed to put these in the oven?"

Just so everyone knows, you don't bake Rice Crispies.

Wait, you don’t?

...I think I kinda knew that maybe, but I would totally make that mistake.
