These past days I have been doing something that I haven’t done before, not in the same way I am doing it now at least. I have studying and reading on my own.
I am currently reading alot about horror stories, from really interesting articles to really dumb movies What makes a good horror story effective and why do people like to be scared.
Something that struck me was that the really creepy horrifying stories are the ones that have no meaning.
I guess this calls back to the fear of the unknown, that’s what makes us shudder. When we don’t understand something that could also be a threat, then we freak out.
Here is a list I found from a survey of “What things frighten you?”
Suffocation Looking foolish
Failing a Test Terrorist Attacks
Injury of a Loved One Spiders
Death of a Loved One War
My Own Death Making mistakes
Being Self-Conscious The Future
Not being a success (0_0) Being Alone
Snakes Criminal Violence
Nuclear War Speaking in Front of a Crowd.
What do you think guys? If you can think of something that really frightens you, drop a comment.
In other news, I applied for a job that I would really love to get, more news to follow, and still keeping with the three pages every morning, all in all, good times.
P.S. I just saw the percentages of the far-right/fascist parties in the European elections… talk about scary things.
