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.”
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 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?”
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
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.
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
Welcome Aboard: The Importance of the Change of Setting in Water for Elephants Imagine one day you’re sitting in class and get the news that both your parents have died in a car accident. In a split second your life has completely changed, you have no money and nowhere to live. You are completely alone in the world now. Just think, what would you do in this situation?
I longed to move to the city; yet, as I grew up and began attending college in Dallas, I began to miss Keller. The time away from my hometown made me realize how much I love the area, how the small-city feel matches my own personality, and how appreciative I was that I got to grow up there. What I realized that I loved most about Keller, is its communal feel. Keller is a relatively small city.
It would be catastrophic if initially choosing an idea only to find out in a couple of months it was unachievable and have to restart all over again leaving me majorly behind any timescales. The project would end up rushed, mistakes would be made and ultimately it would end with a poor quality product. The Clap Switch idea was chosen for the project for numerous reasons, the main reason being to help children prone to waking during the night. Sometimes, as we know, children can feel anxious in the dark, so instead of them struggling to locate the light switch whilst their eyes adjust, the clap switch would be an ideal solution to the problem.
Regret and anger followed my every move, and it was sickening. I needed to move on from the tryout, but more importantly, I needed to feel right about myself
I wanted to test my ASL skills so I didn 't take the headsets. I felt pretty confident but once the play started I realized I was sitting too far from the stage and I didn 't have my glasses with me. Also, I felt intimidated by the fast signing and there were signs I didn 't know. Half way through there was a break so I had to go
