Fear of me or the cat breaking tea ware is number one (nothing broken so far, knock on wood
), fear of brewing wrong is number two (not really afraid
to, but I hate doing it), and fear of wasting money on a tea I end up not liking and am stuck with because I have very few tea-drinking friends around.
As for non-tea fears, I fear situations where I am not able to make my own decisions (example, I dislike my current job, but my contract runs until September, and if I quit, I risk being blacklisted and not being able to find another job in Korea; or I fear somehow losing my job or having some kind of financial emergency where I have no choice but to return to the States and leech off my parents, ect). I fear what can go wrong.
