Fear

Some physical symptoms of fear are shaking, loss of breath, excess sweat, loss of ability to think straight. A fearful person might look lost, or "out of it". They might be always checking behind them, or appear to be shaking. They might talk quietly, or avoid people in general. Extreme fear affects the mind by disorienting the thinking process, causing people to act on instinct of survival, rather than rational thoughts. It can could judgement, and even stop the thought process entirely. When you feel extreme fear, adrenaline and other chemicals are released from your brain into the rest of your heart, giving you increased strength, and a fight or flight response. It has been said that if your brain releases enough of these chemicals, it can overwork your body systems, and possibly lead to death. Fear can cause hallucinations in what we see and hear. If we are afraid of someone following us, or something jumping out at you, your brain imagines these scenarios. Sometimes they feel a little too real though. We master fear by telling ourselves that it will be alright. If you are afraid by the idea of someone coming after you, or someone preying on your fear, you can become fear yourself, or imagine that you yourself are the thing that you are afraid of.

The supernatural

I have never had a supernatural experience. The closest thing to one was when I thought I was home alone, so I believed that the piano was playing itself. It was my mom. I don't know anyone who has told me any story about something supernatural hat happened to them. I might in the future, I don't know. If someone offered me a free reading of my future, I would decline. The only thing that keeps a surprise a real surprise is not knowing it. In my case, I like to believe that my life could go anywhere. Plus, I have a hard time believing hat people can see into the future. If I did get the reading done though, I would react calmly, and think about it. I don't know if that was my future no matter what, or if it will be depending on how I live my life, and the choices I make. All in all, I would not pay much attention to it.

Belief Essay

Liam Gallagher
8-9 Maroon
This I Believe Essay

I believe that everyone should treat others the way they wish to be treated themselves. If you treat someone worse, or even better, than how you wish they would treat you, you aren't being fair to them, or yourlesf. If everyone treated everyone else the way that they wished that everyone else would treat them, then the world would be a better place. I have believed this since I can remember. I remember when I was in first grade, when the teacher brought in cookies for the last day of school. There were fourteen cookies left, and fifteen kids. I was the one that didn't get a second cookie. The teacher looked at me, and then walked over to my friend. She said to him, "Kyle, would you split your cookie with Liam?" Kyle replied, being a typical first grader, "No, thank you." The teacher then told him to treat others the way that you want them to treat you. He thought about this for a moment, and broke off his cookie into two pieces. He gave the slightly smaller one to me, I remember, but I didn't care. I was just happy that he gave me any of his cookie. Two years later, in third grade, I was participating in a game of kickball at recess. Another kid walked up, and asked if he could play. The teams were even, and no one wanted to add a kid to the other team. I thought about what the teacher had said two years ago, about treating others the way you would like to be treated. Just the week before this, I wanted to play kickball, and the other kids let me. We agreed that it was right to let this extra kid come in and play. We had a good time, and all I could think of was how happy I was to give back to the world, for that slightly less than half cookie I got two years prior to this. I believe that everyone should treat others the way they wish to be treated.

Longer Lives

Yes. Scientists should try and do everything they can to lengthen our lives. With more time on our hands, we will be able to see and do more. If I could choose my lifespan I would choose no certain amount of years, but only until I truly felt that my time on this earth is done. Yes. Adding years to your life doesn't necessarily make it any fuller. What you do with those extra years, however, can. Some benefits of living longer lives would be to have a much larger pool of knowledge and wisdom over the years. I think the benefits do out way the consequences. You don't need to have the short luxury of a shorter life to be happy.

Where do I encounter advertising? Everywhere. On billboards, in magazines, on tv, on the walls at my school, in the movies, and many other places.

Voice

Voice can be many things. It can be a character talking, or the style of writing an author portrays. It can be the tone of speaking that the author, narrator, or character demonstrates.

Encyclopedia of my Life

Day, My

My day is going well. I have not hit anyone. I have not gotten angry. I have not sworn. I think it's time for me to get out of bed though.

Dog, My 

My dig is a black lab. She does not believe in the idea that some things should not be eaten. She is a small dog. She makes bad choices. Then again, she is a dog.

Whine, People that 

People that whine annoy me. I hate it. I don't want to hear about their problems. I wish they would just shut up. I am also a hypocrite.
