Sugar Rush

How much caffeine does a person need a day? Do I always need to have caffeine in me? What would happen if just stopped drinking caffeine? First, let’s see what it can be found in. Caffeine can be found in our food, drinks, snacks, and medicine. Like coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks, medical shots, and tea.
It has many effects on the body and can make you more alert and give you a boost in energy. However, if you eat, or drink too much caffeine, then you will start to feel restless, anxious, and irritable. This helpful info came from, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/caffeine.html, and http://www.energyfiend.com/the-caffeine-database. Secondly, it may also keep you from sleeping well and give you headaches, abnormal heart rhythms, or other problems. If you try to stop using caffeine, then you will go into withdrawal. You can kind of see how it would play out if you did stop using caffeine.
First day everything’s good, you just stop using caffeine, you aren’t going to feel anything just yet. Three days later, you start to develop headaches and feel tired more often than usual. You start to fall asleep while in class, in the office, or worst case scenario, while you are driving. I don’t think caffeine can be that dangerous. The only time caffeine can be dangerous is when you take too much of it. What I learned from, http://www.chemistry.com, caffeine’s lethal doses for an adult it is estimated to be 13-19 grams.
Who would, in their right mind, drink so much caffeine (in this case coffee) that it would make them have hallucinations?

Trust Issues

Always expect the unexpected of people. They can say things that will shock you when you see their true colors. All the things you wished would never happen, happened! Then the question comes up, “who can I really trust?” A history of trust can get you a lot of things with the right people. Trust is based on what we are as people and what we are able to do as people. If someone has their total faith in you, you can do almost anything.
These types of people should be reliable, keep their promises, and be loyal as well… can’t forget that. When people who turn their backs on you, it means that person no longer cares what happens to you. I’ll give an example of untrustworthiness, according to npr.org; Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty to embezzling $750,000 of campaign funds collected for his congressional races to buy himself presents. It was a real shock to find out what he was really doing, after hearing such good things about him. Hearing things like this can destroy someone if they are close to that person.
Many common trust issues can come up when a third wheel comes into play. Straight business, love triangles, or just a random club are examples of it. Three teens, known each other since childhood, one does something the others don’t like. The bond that they have starts to crumble to dust. Based on what I see in the world today, you can’t trust anyone you meet or have known from a while back. Maybe people in your family could be included, but that depends on where you come from.

Battery Life

So, class has just begun and you have a substitute instead of your “lovable–” teacher. You get bored quickly with staring out the window, you pull out your phone (unaware that the battery is about to conk out) grab your ear phones and go to Netflix. Zort! Phone cuts off, even worse you got caught! Phone gets taken away, and now you’re pissed.
The most said things from all cellphone users is the battery never seems to last as long as promised. Just when you need to send that email or make that call, you get an annoying low battery warning. If you don’t want to give in to walking around with an adapter and look for an outlet to recharge, try some of these tips to make your phone’s battery life and fight back the causes of cell phone power loss.
 Step 1:  a simple step to follow ~ Turn off the phone! This will be an excellent way to keep that battery life. Why? This will keep power and at the same time charge your phone. Do this also in a place with no signal, like school. Constantly looking for a signal will drain your battery like nobody’s business. Some phones come with a power save feature but it takes a while to kick in. By the time its finish a lot powers been used.
 Step 2: stop searching for a signal! When you’re in an area with poor or no signal, again school, your phone will keep trying to find a better one.
 Step 3:  the way of full charge and no charge. Don’t put the phone on charge if it still has a few hours of power, only in an emergency. Charge it when it is completely dead and when charging it don’t mess with it.
 Step 4:  turn off the vibrate function on the phone. The vibrate function uses more power than your ring tone. Just make sure that the volume is as low as possible.
 Step 5: don’t use anything not worth using. If it will be a while before the next charge, don’t take pictures or connect to the internet. It will drain your battery real fast.
 Step 6:  three words, Keep Calls Short!
 Step 7: Use GSM rather than 3G, 3G will burn that battery faster than standard GSM. If you’re able to read your phone’s stats then you’ll see GSM mode has 50% more battery life than 3G.
 Step 8: Keep the battery cold. Any extra batteries not in use keep it in the fridge and it will last longer. Your body heat can affect it as well. If it’s not being used then place it somewhere cool, it’s over worked, it needs a break.
