How do you deal with your fears?

Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Believe it or not, everyone has had a experience with fear, good or bad. Fear can cause people to be more cautious around certain obstacles, or can bring out the braveness inside them and over come what is holding them back from their full potential. I handle my fears in many different ways. Sometimes i face them straight on, and sometimes a shy away thinking that I cant conquer the fears I have deep inside. The best way to tame your shyness and get over your fears, from my personal experiences, it to face them dead on and not let anything stop you from routing your fears. When I was younger, I had a deep fear of tornado’s. I was terrified by them and every time i saw a dark cloud, instead of me thinking it was just a could filled with rain, i thought of it as a catalyst for a tornado waiting to happen. How i overcame that fear? I stayed outside, in pouring rain, and stared into the clouds. After a few minutes, my fear vanished from my mind, in which i could never believe that it would hurt me. This doesn’t mean that I have always been accepting to conquering my fears, I have also shied away from them as well. Fears can be very difficult to deal with, which in turn, makes people cave and not try to surpass their state of mind. Fear can also make people very introverted and make them stay away from the reality of the world. Fear takes the worst out of people, but with massive drive and braveness, it can be overcame, easily.

To Kill A Mockingbird By: Harper Lee- Memorable Quote

When Jem got mad at Scout and told her to act more like a girl, Calpurnia comforted saying,

“Baby, I just can’t help it if mister Jem’s growin’ up. He’s gonna want to be off to himself a lot now, doin’ whatever boys do, so you just come right on in the kitchen when you feel lonesome. We’ll find lots of things to do in here.”

“Draw it” Project

For my 4th visual project, I decided to do the “draw it” project.

  • Step 1
    • Choose a picture, for me, I chose a picture from google images

  • Step 2
    • Open it into Adobe Photoshop CS4, or any other photo shop website, but for this, I am using Adobe Photoshop CS4.
  • Step 3
    • Duplicate the image so that you can saturate the image to black and white

  • Step 4
    • Click on the adjustment layer button, and within the adjustment layer, choose hue/saturation.

  • Step 5
    • Change the saturation to -100

  • Step 6
    • Click on the background layer and change it to “Colour Dodge”

  • Step 7
    • Invert the colours on the on layer 1 by pressing “Ctrl+I”

  • Step 8
    • Once all of the steps have been completed, we can start the last step. The image should look white or with a few dark spots, but they will be fixed once you change the filter. To do this, click Filter at the top of the computer, then Blur, and Gaussian Blur. Then you slide the radius to an amount that looks good to you.

  • Then, Viola, a picture that looks like a drawing


“Places of Peace” Project

For my third project for my CTS Web 10 course, I decided to do the “Places of Peace” project

My “peaceful places” is as follows:

  • Couch
    • I picked a couch because its where I feel the most comfortable and the most relaxed.

  • Earbuds
    • I chose earbuds to represent music, because music calms me down.

  •  Stars
    • I think that looking up at the stars is one of the most relaxing things to do. Watching the stars glistening and dancing up in the sky is one of the best sights to see.


  • Home
    • My home is where I feel the most safe and the most relaxed.

“Bucket List” Project

For my second project for the CTS Web 10 course, I chose to do a bucket list of the things I want to do in my future life.

These are the places/things I want to go to/do in my future endeavours:

  • Travel to Europe or the other side of the world, I have never been there before.
  • Graduate high school, preferably with honours
  • Go to university and become a doctor or something in the medical field
  • Prolong my sports career, mainly hockey

I use “BeFunky” to create the collage and used the “Pixabay” for the pictures.

“Colour Changer” Project

  • Step 1
    • My mom took this picture of our hockey team from her phone and sent it to me. I thought it would look good colour changed, so I opened it in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

  • Step 2
    • I changed the shade of the players to a darker shade: Image -> Adjustment -> Curves -> Adjusted the chart to make it a darker shade

  • Step 3
    • Next, I changed the shade of the scoreboard to a darker shade using the curve adjustment

  • Step 4
    • Then, I changed the colour of my head coach and of one of the players faces to a lighter shade using the curve adjustment

  • Step 5
    • Done!


Word Craft: Sunrise on the Veld


  • Duiker: a small African antelope that typically has a tuft of hair between the horns, found mainly in the rainforest.
  • He cleared the bushes like a duiker, leapt over rocks; and finally came to a dead stop at a place where the ground fell abruptly away below him to the river.”



  • Myriad: a countless or extremely great number.
  • “He gripped his gun between his knees and felt in his own limbs the myriad swarming pain that of the twitching animal that could no longer feel, and set his teeth, and said over and over under his breath: I can’t stop it. I can’t stop it.”

  • Sultry: (of the air or weather) hot and humid.
  • “That was what he was: fifteen years of rich soil, and this slow-moving water, and air that smelt like a challenge whether it was warm and sultry at noon, or as brisk as cold water, like it was now

  • Lintel: a horizontal support of timber, stone, concrete, or steel across the top of a door or window.
  • “As soon as he stepped over the lintel, the flesh of his soles contracted on the chilled earth, and his legs began to ache with cold.”

  • Fastidious: very attentive to and concerned about accuracy and detail.
  • “Alert as an animal he crept past the dangerous window, standing poised with his hand on the sill for one proudly fastidious moment.”
