I didn’t get around to yesterday secret =P So here’s yesterday’s and today’s.

Secret #10: I’m always afraid I’m going to develop an an allergy to something since my mom suddenly became allergic to Red dye #40. She’s never been allergic to anything before, and neither am I, not even poison oak or ivy. So you may see why I get so freaked out.

Secret #11: I hate Fall. It reminds me of too much of an event 4 years ago. Its so cold and everything seems to dying away. I see it as quite sad, actually.
