✿ GAIAMANIA! ✿
Someone told me they missed my word of the day, which I did for a year in my status and then stopped. I added occasional words (each was a different kind of phobia) to my status. As of today, September 10, 2013, This is an attempt at year 2 of the Fun Neurosis Vocabulary List, but this time I'll keep track, and I will use manias instead of phobias.
