However, I still get nervous before every race, but after my first race, I learned how to use those nerves and fear to push me to run faster rather than hold me back. I have the same feeling when I’m taking an important test that I studied all night for and I know all of the answers. Instead of letting my brain shut down because of fear that I’m going to fail the test, I tune out all of the bad “what if” ideas that fear feeds my mind and only focus on the task at hand. I learned that if I focus on the present, instead of something that could possibly happen in the future, the fear of the future goes away. If we can disprove the existence of fear in our lives, then we can go on with our
Ever since I’ve known about Valleyfair, the U-shaped ride Steel Venom has scared me. There’s just something about a possible concussion and whiplash that doesn’t appeal to me, and yet here I am, finding myself and my friends in the back of the agonizingly long line. All around me I hear, “I love this ride!” and, “This is the best one!” but Steel Venom looks like a metal death trap and I, for one, do not “love this ride.” I’m scared of heights; I don’t like going uncontrollably fast; and I especially don’t like how feet aren’t inclosed, dangling, waiting to scrap the cement and be lost forever. Heather asks, “Are you guys so excited? I am!” Mattie replies, “Heck yeah!
Every day many of us are faced with the question, “Should I step in and help?”. Some of us immediately think yes and jump in to help, while others believe it is better to keep walking. The bystander effect happens when a person does not stop and help because they think someone else will. In these situations, some people stand up and respond to the crisis, because they are not worried about what will happen to them, but what will happen to the person in crisis instead. In the novel Night and the poem “The Hangman”, the bystander effect took place because people were afraid to bring attention to themselves.
Everyone then told their stories about how they got here and what their lives were like before. Then, the voice quickly explained that clouds can’t hold water for long and that we are about to fall from the sky. Screams ensued and before we knew it, we were hurtling toward the earth faster than a bullet. The Earth hurtled closer by the second. I braced myself and closed my eyes, not wanting to see what will come next.
I was waiting in line at the Rockin Roller Coaster at Disney World, and I had butterflies in my stomach. The line was so long and when people got off they looked very shaken. The tunnel that led inside of the Rockin Roller Coaster was really dark inside, and the music was really loud. When I was waiting in line I really wanted to tell my mom and dad that I did not want to ride the ride anymore, but instead I said, “Have you ever ridden the Rockin Roller Coaster before?” And my dad said, “Yes I have and it was really fun, I know that you are going to love it!” That made me feel a little bit better because he liked it too. We kept on getting closer and closer to the front of the line and I kept on getting shakier and shakier.
Then, he regrets that he made the offer in the first place. He began to ponder that he had never been outside of Ch’ulp’o since he was little. Tree-ear also thinks about other perils that he could run into on the journey, such as robbers, animals, and rockslides. Even though he begins to get a little frightened, Tree-ear knows that he has to keep his word to
I had to go on it, because all of my friends were going to ride it and I couldn't wuse out. As we waited while the ride before us got off hearing them scream “that was fun” or “that was the best view ever” I had to do it, I had to get on that ride and try to eliminate my fear of heights. Nervously, I sat in my seat and buckled up and tried to relaxed. My muscles were tense my body was shaking and the adrenaline rush of
My friends said that the middle was less, scary but unfortunately it was taken so we had to go to the top I was about run out of the ride but my friends were holding me back creak! creak! The gate closed I was horrified , but the seat belt held me back. It started moving higher and higher me screaming like my life depended on it but laughing and crying at the same time I was going through mixed emotions. Then
We are coming up for our deployment rotation and while we are deployed being late could seriously hurt us or stress our Chain of Command out because they may think one of us are lost or worse dead. Accountability in the military is huge. The military is all about being at the right place, at the right time, and in the right uniform. I was late for accountability formation and that is the most important formation of the day. I did not report so that means no one knew where I was at, even though I was safe and in my room, no one knew where I was and no one knew if I was safe or not.
Deliberately, I started to recall a few flashes from the incident, and it all began to make sense. Delighted by a professional acrobatic performance at a local park, three friends and I started to practice Le Parkour. Although I joined the group, I had limited myself to some simple movements. To my friends, I was just scared of hurting myself - which was partly true, but their blurred vision could not observe my fundamental obstacle, which
