  1. My Deathly Fear

    February 13, 2014 by sanjanal622

    My most deathly fear is probably an elevator. Every time I see one my mind starts racing with questions, but the biggest question of all is—will it get stuck? Every time I see the silver doors close I pray that the elevator doesn’t get stuck. I can always imagine the long hole it’s in and the ropes and metal that hold it up. I make sure that the elevator has some kind of help button before I get in. Or at least I make sure I have my phone. If the elevator looks old and crusty I immediately turn around and head for the stairs. 


  2. Expository Writing: Fear Is Harmful

    Your voice stutters, your heart starts beating faster and beads of sweat start trickling down your face. Don’t give into fear.

      When your head is clouded with to much self judgment (from fear) you may think of what you may no accomplish. When you are back stage before a piano recital, Thoughts of failure flood your mind. you think, what fi I hit the wrong note? what if I fail? Fear can mess up what you can accomplish.

      Another reason fear is harmful is that if you are nervous you may not do as well and your probably low on self confidence. For example, during your piano recital if you believe you’ll do it horribly and you get up on stage, Your fear will clog up your mind and you probably wont do as well as when you practiced. Just don’t let fear  take over when you want to accomplish something.

      Next time you are scared, just take a deep breath and think to your self I can do this, don’t think of your faults- don’t think of messing It up. Just think about what you can achieve.

  3. Think Before You Do Something

    The pain was so traumatizing. I couldn’t bare it any longer. My leg felt as if it has just been run over by a train.

      For some reason, I foolishly thought that I could do a cartwheel in a tiny space in my room. I put my hands on the round and kicked my legs high in the air. As I was coming down I heard a…THUNK. For a second I couldn’t feel my left leg. Then I felt it, the excruciating pain in my leg. I screamed in pain and looked down at my foot. I could see my leg starting to become bright red. the pain was radiating up my leg and the tears started tricking down my face. I got up with the last bit of energy I had and tried hopping to my bed. I felt as if I only had one leg, because I couldn’t eve walk. I laid in agony on my bed and thought to myself, Why did I just do something so dumb without even thinking? Later that day, my mom took me to the hospital and I just sat there in the ugly green painted x-ray room. My heart was pounding and my fingers were tapping nervously as I saw the doctor walk in. He said, “You have broken your foot and will need a cast.” I flinched at the word cast and my head almost exploded when he said for a whole month.

      Even to this day, I still regret just doing something so carelessly without even going through it in my mind. I can still imagine the traumatizing pain. This mistake thought me to always think before I act.
