I’m a scaredy cat and I’m… proud?

I’m sitting here writing this while my friends sit in another room watching a horror – Sinister, to be exact. I hate horror, always have, and when the group that was hanging in my room decided to leave and watch the movie, I opted to stay here. Apparently, that just wasn’t an option. I had a girl clinging onto me with her blanket, everyone explaining how I didn’t have to watch, and a boy telling me it “wouldn’t be the same” if I wasn’t there. So, with everyone knowing I was going to be on my phone for most of it, I decided to go and watch it. Maybe I’ve gotten better at watching these things, right? 

I lasted maybe half an hour. If you don’t know the movie is, from what I gathered, about a family that were hanged, and a writer is trying to work out why. There’s some creepy kidnapping and tortue and night terrors and stuff, and apparently it just gets worse from there. Woo hoo! I sat on my phone, read some blog posts, sent some emails… But the music, guys. And the occassional scene where I couldn’t look away. Gasps from my friends, some of who were freaking out. I had to leave. Right now, I’m writing because if I Image result for scared screaming giftry to watch something else I think I’ll have those things stuck in my head. My hands are all sweaty, and I kind of want to vomit. This is from HALF AN HOUR. How was I meant to cope through the entire movie??

Now, let me explain the title. I hate that all my friends are hanging out without me, and I love how they were really anxious for me to be there, so I gave in pretty fast. But I left, because I was too scared, and I’m pretty proud of myself for not letting that feeling of being left out become the most important thing. I like the me that has the confidence to get up and leave, because that me wouldn’t have existed a couple of years ago. I wish I could be a fan, but I just don’t understand scaring yourself on purpose! 

Also, according to a little bit of googling I did, it’s to do with positive experiences and adrenline rushes – so, maybe me, the person that hates rollercoasters and driving and anything with the slightest possibility of death, was never going to enjoy horror… 

Basically, this is me writing to stop thinking. It’ll go away, I’m completely fine, just give me five minutes. Do you guys like horror, or are you like me? Or are you just pretty neutral about the whole thing?

I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!

  1. i…hate…horror. HATE it. I don’t get it; I find all the gore and needless over the top voiolence vaguely sickening to be honest. It doesn’t really scare me, but I’ve never understood why people enjoy it. Nice to find a fellow…non-fan? XD

  2. I feel ya. I hate horror movies too. I hate being scared or creeped out. And I too hate being left out, but I will 100% leave a group if they’re watching a horror movie. It’s not fair. It’s not just that I don’t like it in the same way I don’t like sports movies, it’s that it seriously effects me. Knowing what you can and can’t handle and not falling for peer pressure is great.

    1. Yeah, there’s no way I’ll be joining them next time, it’s too much. That’s awful that it affects you so badly though, but it’s hard for them to want to do things that you have to be left out of!

      1. Yeah totally, even RL Steins The Goosebumps series are super creepy to me. Not the actually Goosebumps movie with Jack Black, that wasn’t scary. But the other one’s about his books are!!!!
