Overcoming my Fear to Meet my Celebrity Crush
Now, my greatest fear is is not the thing I am most scared of but one that is so strange and unusual. I have an irrational fear of escalators. Yes, you read that right. Escalators.
This leads to a lot of problems because escalators are literally everywhere. They're in shopping malls, book stores, movie theaters, the airport and even in my school. I am literally forced to take them. You would think I would be over my fear by now, after 19 years of life. But, no. Each time I approach an escalator, I freeze in my tracks, hold on to the railing for dear life, take a deep breath and take that faithful step on. I was not always able to get on them. Luckily for me, my friend in ninth grade pushed me on one, showing me I could actually go on an escalator with out dying. Stumbling off and on however, thats a different issue.
Just a few weeks ago I had to go up and down four flights of escalators at a book signing. This was a big deal for me. I even did it in 4-inch heels. Please hold your applause. This was traumatizing for me. But, it was worth the agony because I met my celebrity crush, Dan Howell. I also met Phil Lester; you cannot mention Dan with out mentioning Phil. They and One Direction are the only reasons I would ever go on so many escalators in a row.
