    hahaha A Fraid of Spiders :PP
    I really don’t like spiders, they creep me out and i can’t kill them :S When i still lived with my parents, i always called my mom to kill them, now that i’m alone i freak out every time i see a spider in the house :S it practically takes half a roll of kitchen paper for me to kill the smallest spider because i can’t stand the feeling of “crushing” something :S i hate all bugs 😛 i mean, i’m fine with them if they are outside and stay away from me 😛
