Reading this made me want to throw up from nervousness.

Honestly I have too many worries in life right now, so I could not contribute to this list. I thought I would have a nervous breakdown once i compared them all. But I love #1, it makes me laugh, as i used to live in a cabin by myself in the middle of nowhere, and i had these really slippery slippers, and i was really worried that i would fall down the stairs and die and no one would find me until rent was late.
