So here it is, my other irrational fear... FERRIS WHEELS! Those things just scare me to death! Back when I was younger I used to be deathly afraid of heights. When I was seven or eight my family went to Niagra Falls. We were walking over a bridge to get to the Canada side (a very large bridge that even had cars driving on it) and I was so scarred that I started crying. I got over that fear of heights around when I was twelve and I first climbed a rock wall. Ever since then I have loved things like rock climbing, and last summer I helped to teach high ropes at a summer camp. I also love roller coasters and even want to go sky diving when I save up enough money, but ferris wheels absolutely scare me to death ( as do ski lifts). I tried going on one a couple years back to see if I was over my fear, and nope I wasn't. There is just something about being in a swaying little compartment that is high up in the air without any type of seat belts or safety restraints. They had a ferris wheel on campus for a day last semester and I took a pretty cool picture of it.
