About Jessica Regan

Arts 2nd Year

Hi, I’m Jessica. I’m in the second year of my Arts degree now, and I’m going to major in English. This blog is basically about my experiences with uni. I hope I can entertain you with trivial details of my daily life, mini catastrophes, random thoughts and observations.

I never know what to write in ‘about me’ sections of things, so I thought I’d make a list of certain things that generally creep me out.

Things that creep me out:

People who wink at me
Under all circumstances winking is creepy. Even if it isn’t meant to imply anything, it usually ends up doing so and I find that no matter who it is coming from, it sends a shiver up my spine. Winking is not socially acceptable. It just isn’t. So, stop it.

Thinks that scuttle
Cockroaches creep me out. I’m a girl; it seems obvious that they should. But, you see, not all creepy crawlies scare me. Spiders I’m completely fine with. Moths too. You see, these insects do not scuttle. Cockroaches scuttle. Mice scuttle. Just saying the word scuttle is creepy enough.

Long, natural fingernails (Particularly the pinky finger)
Ew. They get dirt stuck under them. They prevent you from doing quite a few everyday activities. Yes you can scratch you eye while having your hand an inch away from your face, but is it really worth it? And one last thing… wiping the nether-regions post bowel movement. How is it done? Actually, I don’t want to know.

Walking into spider webs
They are invisible to anyone but you. Walking into one, you look like a crazy person brushing yourself, freaking out and perhaps even screaming. You become entangled in this sticky invisible web, and there is always the lingering knowledge that a spider may be present somewhere in your hair.

People who sneeze into their hand and then hand you money/ go to shake your hand
You sneezed in front of me. You had the courtesy to stop yourself from spraying me in the face with your spittle, yet you insist of still passing on your germs by touching something you are about to hand me with your still-damp hands. I’ll take the face spraying thank you. It’s a more direct way to the disease, and I don’t have to pretend to be nice to you when you do it.

People who pick things up with their feet
Just bend down, it’s really not that hard. Feet creep me out in general. I’m just being specific here. Feet are like hands, but not. Another foot related creeper is a second toe that is significantly longer that the big toe. Not as creepy, but on the list.

Watching someone put in or take out contact lenses
How can you touch your eyeball like that? Doesn’t it hurt? You’re putting something IN YOUR EYE willingly. If you haven’t guessed, I don’t wear contact lenses. Even if I did, I still don’t think I’d be able to watch someone putting them in. Oh and coloured contact lenses. If your eyes are naturally brown, it looks strange if they are PURPLE.

And last but not least:
The reality behind yogurt
There is stuff living in it. We eat that living bacteria. And it tastes good.
