Scaredy Cat.

Tough CAT...

Scaredy Cat. And super flattering photo might I add.

Fear is not something I really like to discuss, because even talking or thinking for too long about my fears only brings the anxiety level a notch higher than it almost always is.. but since I'm committing to this 10 day challenge here goes.

1. Flying.. hate it. Unlucky for me, unless I want to spend forever driving back and forth across the country it's the only way I get to see my family.

Where I live...

Where Mom & Dad moved... sigh...being a bi-coastal family is tough.

2. Sleeping in an empty house. Hate it. I always end up falling asleep watching Golden Girls hahaha b/c it's practically the only thing on tv that late that isn't an infomercial.

Seriously ladies...Thank you for being a friend. Ha!

3. Not being a good teacher. I know that I have the heart and the passion but sadly so much of teaching is judged by standardized test scores, I fear that I will not be able to teach the way I wish while also making sure my students are living up to "state standards".

4. Not being able to have children. I worry about this one a lot. I can't wait to be a mother and hope that it comes easily but I am very aware that this isn't always the case.

5. I worry about my future children all the time too. Oh my goodness I am already a crazy helicopter mom and I don't even have kids. I fear their safety, their judgment, the people they surround themselves with, the list goes on and on and on. It's actually comical how much I think and worry about "them".

LOVE this... ha! Hopefully you can click to read larger, but basically what I will say to my children every day. Love, plain and simple ;)

6. I'm a people pleaser to a fault. I constantly fear that I will offend someone, or make people unhappy. Mr. Jones calls it Catholic guilt and tells me to get over it. I'm working on it.

7. I'm terrified of scary movies and I even mute the commercials when they come on and have to look away.

Can you tell I found the most non scary "Scary Movie" poster I could ;) Yep. This could also apply to me and my previous statements about my unborn children. Ha ;)

8. I don't even like typing this one in light of recent events.. but I am so afraid of natural disasters...all of them...all the time. I'm prepared but am always on edge about these things!!

Eeeeek ok ready for this challenge to be over!!

Soo looking forward to moving on to tomorrows challenge which is seven wants! And in lieu of my usual What I'm Loving Wednesday post I will say that I am Loving this little 10 day challenge! It's a nice change of pace from the usual day to day stuff I blog about!

Happy hump day my darlings!

xoxo- miss v.


  1. We share too much in common-even fears. Yikes!

  2. We maaaay have been separated at birth, seriously! I have the worse* anxiety and everything makes it worse. Golden Girls are the best* insomnia/home alone fix. :)

  3. We have a lot of same fears lady!

  4. I'm fearful of lots of things too! No fun :(

    Hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
