Things I am irrationally afraid of

Today I'm going to get my haircut, something I'm long overdo. My poor hair hasn't seen a pair of scissors in about 8 months, and you can tell. I have thick hair with tons of natural body and now that it's gotten so long it really is just out of control. But thankfully today the miracle worker that is my hair stylist will work her magic and give my locks new life. So don't be surprised when I post a selfie today of me rocking a hair style similar to this one.

For about the past 10 years every time I make an appointment to get my hair cut I have the same reoccurring nightmare. The stylist gets distracted and for some reason dyes my hair Ronald McDonald red. Not knowing what else to do we decide to cut it short and she gives me a pixie cut. Obviously this is not a good look for me. I wake up in a panic and spend my entire appointment afraid of speaking too much and distracting her.

Now y'all I've never had a haircut that was just awful so this fear is completely 100% irrational, but that doesn't make it any less real. I'm just thankful I have a nice shade of dark brown hair that doesn't require any highlights or color because I don't think I could handle the stress. I really don't know what I'm going to do when I start to turn grey. Sadly this isn't my only irrational fear. I also constantly worry about

1. Earthquakes - I seriously doubt I'll ever even be able to visit California, much less consider living there because of these. I know there are tons of other natural disasters, but earthquakes just seem the most terrifying because they could literally happen at any time with no warning.

2. the idea that life will never be as good as it was in college - To say I loved my college experience would be an understatement. Think of the time you were happiest in your whole life, multiply that feeling by ten, and that is what my time at Ole Miss was like. I would often tell my friends that I think I peaked in 2011, the year I was president of my sorority. They always thought I was kidding, except I wasn't. It's really hard to imagine life getting better than that

3. Dying alone - At the risk of sounding like something out of 1950, my lifelong biggest dream has been to fall in love, get married, and have babies. I'm 23 and have never had a serious relationship with someone that I could imagine being with for more than a year, let alone forever. I 100% believe in soul mates, but sometimes I worry that because I'm so shy I'll miss mine until it's too late to raise a family

So why do I tell you all this? Because I'm hoping someone will tell me these are totally normal things to worry about and maybe you worry about something more irrational.


  1. I have SO many irrational fears so don't worry!! (Same idea about natural disasters - I will never buy a house on a hill!) If I'm going on a long drive I have to slam every door shut and lock the doors because I am worried one of the doors (or God forbid the trunk) will pop open and my stuff will be scattered all over the highway. I could literally spend all day talking about my irrational fears. So nice to know I'm not the only one!

  2. I'm irrationally afraid of someone breaking into my house while I'm home. I think #3 is pretty normal, though.

  3. I completely agree with you on the whole college thing. I LOVED COLLEGE SO MUCH.

    I'm irrationally afraid of zombies. Seriously. I know their not real but I'm preparing myself in the case of a future zombie apocalypse.

  4. Number 3 is my life. Girl, you aren't alone!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
