9-11 was the event that lead me out of my 'matrix' existence, and there are times I wished I had stayed there in blissful ignorance

Sort of made an account just to post my story.
I was always interested in UFOs, cryptozoology, whatever the standard stuff the "creepy" section of the library stocked. I was most interested when I was a little kid, about six or seven, even though it petrified me. I often found myself scared to death of whatever thing I had read about that day to the point where I'd stand frozen in the shower for hours, fearing the aliens or mothmen or men in black would catch me if I moved.
But when you're scared of something, you gotta educate yourself on it, right?
That wasn't my thinking but it happened anyway. I stumbled across this site (probably because of Harry Potter, to be honest) more than a couple years ago and was instantly scared away by some of the more descriptive stuff. But now that I'm older and wiser, I like to hear all the different sides of every story. I like to hear all the different stories. I'm a big believer in representing every facet of an issue. And these are important too.
