When I was a small child somewhere around the age of 7 or 8 I believe I started to gain this fear of water. I almost drown 2 times when I was 7 and ever since I haven't had any liking to water. The first time I almost drown was swimming in a lake ( I don't remember what Lake it was). At that time I wasn't really afraid of water for a long period of time until it happened again when I was swimming in Disney World and I almost died. Today I’m not really afraid of water I can swim just fine and if I have to ill go in but I doubt I will ever enjoy it ever again. I suppose in a way back when I was afraid of the water I just didn't want to die, which I suppose is what all fear is...but that’s beside the point anyways, It relates to the story because the boys on the island are also afraid of dying there because no one will rescue them.

In response to using technology in Mr. Ayer's English class i believe that we benefited greatly from it. Using different things like Blogger, Wikispaces, and Google Docs has improved the class in productivity. The different things we used made everything more quick for us to do the assignments and helped us get everything done with more quickly. I had a good time using technology in Mr. Ayers class and i hope he continues to use it.

In the story of Macbeth, written by Shakespeare, there is a line that states “There’s daggers in men’s smiles.” I believe this quote to be entirely true because almost all people in life would like to manipulate people just to get their way. There was a time in my life where this quote applied to myself. Over this past summer my mother made me a promise that if i got my hair cut for the summer I could do anything I wanted with it. Including dying it or getting it cut in any fashion i wanted. My Aunt came with because she didn't believe i was getting my hair cut off so much. When we got there my mother told the person who was cutting my hair to quick take a whole bunch off and when it happened i was shocked. I felt deceived and very sad. I couldn't leave my hairstyle the way it was so I got almost all my hair cut off, when it was all over with my mom just smiled and my aunt took pictures. To this day I'm still holding my mother to the deal she made with me and plan on doing something crazy with my hair either this spring or this upcoming summer.
