The Dangers of Using Substances for Dieting

Many people may think that substances are great for dieting; however, people may not know many of the side effects that come with the substance. These substances may cause insomnia, anxiety, weight loss, dependence addiction, dehydration, tremors, increase heart rate and blood pressure, and increase the risk of stroke, heart disease, and cardiac arrhythmia. All these effects can alter your health and your body shape in many different ways.

Those effects may then cause death and relationship issues with your family and friends because they see you like something different with all these problems while they are acting perfectly normal. Healthier alternatives could be having a healthier diet where you eat and exercise more instead of taking drugs. Another healthier alternative is having a better lifestyle and not doing work or things to harm and alter your body.

Fall mentoring trip

The mentoring trip during fall 2017, we had a mentoring trip at Shi Men Shan. I was very excited for the different things that we were gonna do. During the Raft building, we had to persevere because our boat rope kept going lose. After tying the ropes over and over again, we finally got it to a point where it was strong enough to keep the boat together. The boat floated until I jumped off and pushed my bamboo boat to the rock.

One Day 2017

I created a painting about pollution, trying to give awareness. I have made a painting showing the sadness, and pollution in the world. I had a few problems dealing with messing up my painting. My impact was to try and give awareness. I might continue something with this project later on.

Giver Discussion 4 What I Think About the Ending

I think that the death ending is a good ending because it explains that Jonas did all he can to help Gabriel before he could get released. The ending also shows that Gabriel has a new future before he could die like Jonas, but Jonas did it for him. But I think that they could have made it clearer that Jonas might have died instead of putting small details for the reader to catch on.

The Giver Discussion 4

I once nearly drowned but my friend saved my. I learned to be more carful from this experience because I could have been seriously injured and maybe even killed. I would not want to take away this experience because it allowed me to remember things that I should not have done when I don’t stay alert. This experience also allowed me to think ahead and think of the consequences of my actions and not what would I do but the consequences of my actions.

Happy Birthday

It was the day, when my friend had his seventh birthday, and it was my very first sleep over, my friend was so exited and he loved having friends over. When I got to his house, he spotted our car, and he rushed to the door and swung it open, “come on dude,” Chadwick shouted. “You have to join this game.” He added. After he shouted at me, he went back downstairs to continue his game. I had no idea what he was talking about, so I followed him.As I followed him, I said, “hi” to all the parents that were talking at the table, and I went down the stairs and followed Chadwick to where they were playing. When I got there, I saw Clarence and Chadwick playing on the Xbox. I took a controller and joined them playing Halo Reach. As we played, Curtis and Jonathan arrived. And we stop playing and chatted for a while. As they came down, I told them, “We need to go up stairs to eat. We all went upstairs to eat, we ate pizza and fried chicken, and we had to wait for people to finish once we were done, I never really liked pizza even until today, I still don’t like it. Once we finished eating, we went down and we played some more electronic games, and we had junk food and soda, and it tasted good. When I was at the birthday party, I didn’t know that junk food was really unhealthy. Later we played board games, and we also played truth or dare. We also chatted about how was school and what we did for the holiday. I ask Chadwick, “ dude what you do this brake?” He said back,” we stayed in Beijing, and we didn’t really do much.” The others shouted, “same.” Then I thought it was a really short brake though. We pretty much all stayed in Beijing and didn’t leave. Soon it got late, so we went to bed, once we got in bed we tried to sleep. BUT NOO, someone had to do some non-stop talking, after a while of Chadwick blabbering away. Clarence got a headache and went upstairs to sleep while some people kept talking. Chadwick kept on talking about how he thought of his brother, and how much he loved his birthday party. Finally he talked about how we were going to wake up early and get McDonald for breakfast. And then I raged and shouted at them “PLEASE SOMEONE IS TRYING TO SLEEP HERE,” then they all became whispers and I tried falling into a deep sleep. But still I couldn’t sleep, so I put my sleeping bag on the couch and tried. Suddenly, I fell and then I woke the others, but I kept shut. And we all fell into a deep night sleep. The next morning I woke up to no one that was in the basement. I ran upstairs and saw everyone eating breakfast, and I found myself a seat and sat down. We had a sunny shine up and orange juice. We kept on talking about the game Halo we played yesterday. I said” Chadwick how did you get an ability pack?” and he said “you find them on the ground.” though I never find anything. Once we finished breakfast, we went down and played halo reach, very soon Cutis mom came to pick him up, we said bye and then Chadwick gave him a goody bag, and came back down, as we played we took turns to whoever died, then the person has to give the remote to the next person. And soon Jonathan had to leave because of a class, and then we changed to three players, I was in the lead and then Chadwick got into a kill streak, he kept killing us with the tank, but I found banshee and gave Chadwick his kill streak ending. We went up to eat cake, we sang the birthday song and Chadwick made his wish, soon, his mom cut up the cake, I had a big piece cause I loved sweets at that time. Once we finished my cake I waited for my friends. Suddenly my mom showed up out of nowhere. She said “hi.” I was not the most excited person that moment. I ask my mom lots and lots of time,” can I please stay a bit longer.” Of course she said no I felt downfallen. But I left with a sad look, getting my goody bag on the way out. At last when I got on the car, I opened the goody bag, it had candy and a small nerf gun, I was excited and shouted “yes,” because I never really had much nerf guns before. When I got home, I ran to my dairy, and what happen this entire birthday party, and my first sleepover. The Next day, when I went to school, I had show and tell, and I brought my nerf gun, everyone liked it, and the time I saw Chadwick, I thank him for getting me this.

Is There A Water Crisis?

Our World has a water Crisis,

First of all, we could walk to a tap, and get clean water and drink it up, but while that happens, woman go walking about 6 hours a day, to get dirty gross water, and what happens to these people? As Charity Water Says, “97% of the world’s water is salt water, 2% is dirty contaminated water, and 1% is drinkable.” And surprisingly, we are drinking water when it feels like all water is drinkable, when there is only one percent that IS drinkable. But this is solvable if we try and make wells, making some people in Africa walk a lot less, instead of walking all the way, all this time that was wasted can go to reading or learning.

Secondly, think about the water we are using, just because we drink water everyday, it doesn’t mean that we can drink clean water everyday. And not just Africa has a water problem, Beijing also has a water problem, though you might think that that’s not true, it is. As Charity Water claims that, “drinking dirty water can make you have really deadly diarrhea,” and that may sound more dangerous than it is. And imagine being one of those people that have to do that, walking six hours a day, just to get nasty water. Both contaminated with dirty germs, and animal dump.

Finally, are we thinking that water is not a drought, surprisingly it is. Some people in places are taking their worst drought in the world. As The Days.co.UK states that, “China is having one of their worst droughts in their 50 years. “ And there are 400 million people supported with contaminated water sources. Some people think that this is easily solvable thing, but it’s not that easy. And we have to solve it fast before it evolves.

What sparked me to write this is that the world is nearly at devastation, and we need to do something. In China where sometimes people do have some drinking problems where it is really unbalance where places get there enough water to use or not. And if you try and help just a little bit, that will help a lot of people. For example, you can take a shorter shower and maybe even help find ways, to help water sources.
