These scary stories will haunt you

Forgetting to fill out your FAFSA

Taking out a student loan

They crush your credit score, but they help you in your path to success! Still, even the thought of it is spooky.

Becoming committed to someone

Getting into a serious relationship? What a nail-biter!

Meeting the parents

Now this is a whole other level of commitment! Deciding what to wear, what to say, what to do? It’s too much to handle!

Forgetting to take the chicken out of the freezer

Remember the days when your mom would call you to defrost dinner while she was at work and you forgot? Remember how you’d scramble to try and thaw it out five minutes before she got home? Those were terrifying times.

Taking your car into the shop

Even the thought of taking your car to get fixed is nerve-racking. When it actually happens, it’s the scariest.

Turning in an assignment at 11:59 p.m. when it’s due at midnight

Not knowing if your computer will load your assignment before midnight can cause lots of anxiety! At least you get a sense of relief when it’s sent in, if it even turns in on time.

Adulting

I saved the scariest story for last. We have to work 40+ hours a week, have a mortgage, pay bills, and cook and clean regularly!? So many go through it, but it’s hard to know how they survive it in the end.
