A time I felt fear was just before my dog Leo was put down. I was scared and sad altogether. My body got hot and I started shaking intensely. My face was beat red and my eyes were full of tears.
    Extreme fear effects the mind by making things very difficult to process and understand. When you're under extreme fear, you tend to focus on only thing. You can't hear anything around you. You're pretty much hypnotized if you really think about it. Fear is overpowering but, can definitely be overcome as well.

Old Age & Dying

     I think it depends on the people. Some people may want to live longer while others may not. I personally would like to live a longer life, but..it depends on who I end up being with in the future. If I really love them then I want to be with them for as long as possible. Like I said it's different for other people.
     If I could choose my life span I would choose as long as possible if I'm with the right person in the future. If I'm alone I probably won't want to stay alive and live a boring life. It all kinda depends on my future really.
     On some degree I do agree with him but then again, if you live longer you'll have more time to do the things you've always wanted to and enjoy doing your favorite everyday activities. People look at this from different perspectives. So it's all up to the person living life and deciding what they want to do.

It's Personal

Hey, one thing that's been working really well for me during the past couple weeks has been writing about personal things. Such as things I believe in or personal events that have happened to me. I have to admit that it is emotionally hard for me to write about some of the personal things that have happened but it's also kinda like therapy for me. It's stuff I have to let out and get off my chest. I wish we could write about this kind of stuff way more often. I wonder if any of you feel the same way? Is writing about personal stuff therapeutic for you as well? Please let me know?

My Writing Voice

     I think my writing voice is somewhat still developing. I'm not quite so sure how to get it to come through my writing at it's full potential yet. My voice in writing will hopefully come out to be very passionate. I wrote a piece about music not too long ago and it came out pretty well written. Music is something I'm passionate about so I think that helped my voice come through a lot clearer than if I wasn't into what I was writing about.
      Hopefully I can get a little feed back from some of you out there.

Encyclopedia: My Life

Favorite Word: My favorite word is Love. Not sure why. Maybe it's the way it looks when I write it down on paper. Maybe it's the way it feels when it rolls off my tongue when I say it.

Home Sick: I'm very home sick. Not the kind you get when you go to your Grandmas house for a week. I'm talking about the kind where you move away from everything and everyone you know and love. I cry myself to sleep every night because I feel like this isn't where I belong.

Music: Music is my world! For me music is like therapy...when I'm feeling mad, there's music to calm me down. When I'm sad, yup...music for that too! Guess what? I found music to take me back home! <3

Final Reflection

     Reflecting back to the beginning of the year I feel as though my writing wasn't as good as I am capable of getting it. I had a lot of trouble picking what to write about, then when it came time to start  the piece I couldn't get words onto the paper. My writing was kind of bland and uninspired. I couldn't really get into the promts we were given which made writing more difficult. As the semester progressed writing got fairly easier. I was able to be more inspired so the writing came easily to me. The last writing piece we did I was able to write with very little complications. I wrote about something I'm very passionate about. I think that seems to be very helpful in writing. I have definitely improved in writing this semester.
