3: SYMBOLISM | ''The ocean is the symbolism of a great journey.'' -Enya | Symbolism: The representation of a concept through an object. | Symbolism in my life is the four elements: Fire, water, earth, and air. In the case of fire, life blazes wildly, and sometimes the answer in life becomes dim. Other times, you are suffocated by choices you must make. Water is a symbol because life moves evenly, like a river. But sometimes, you carry stones and branches with you, and there may be a split in the path. Life is like earth because we grow and blossom as we age, but someone may come along and trample upon us. Eventually , we wilt and die, but not before planting seeds of our own. Finally, air represents my life because it blows in many directions, and sometimes casts items away. Air fills our lungs and expands them, then exits and tightens them. | ''When you have spent an important part of your life playing Let's Pretend, it's often easy to see symbolism where none exists.'' -Gene Tierney

4: ANTAGONIST | I am my own antagonist. Every day I question the actions I take and the choices I must decide upon. Sometimes I think that I've made a terrible decision and I can't find any way to make myself feel better. When I'm upset, I'll just barricade myself in my room and say cruel things to myself. Both sides of my brain, "Angel" and "Devil" sides, are in a continuous war against each other. | “He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist in our helper.” ~Edmund Burke quotes | Antagonist: A character or force in conflict with the main character, or protagonist.

5: Flat Character | A flat character in my life is my Grandma Rouse. She lives four hours away from my house, so I don't see her often or really know about her. The last time I saw her was at my Grandpa Rouse's funeral. Grandma usually drove down to our house on Christmas, but when Grandpa became ill she couldn't come. Now, she might be able to drive down and celebrate with us this year. Then I'll ask to learn more about her. | Flat Character: A character who only has one or two personality traits and a little, if any, personal history. | "Getting to know someone else involves curiosity about where they have come from, who they are." ~Penelope Lively

6: Round Character | A round character in my life is my sister Sarah. She's six years older than me, and I've known her my whole life. We share a room when she comes home from college, and we text each other every week. Sarah and I iChat once a month for fun, and we go shopping and to the movie theaters together. | "Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there." ~Amy Li

7: Static Character | A static character in my life is my Grandpa Easton. He is always able to crack a joke and enjoy being around his grandchildren. My Grandpa is hilarious, and knows how to be silly. Grandpa puts in a movie every time my family goes over to visit, and it's always The Pink Panther Returns. I love my Grandpa because he's silly, sweet, and jolly. | "A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart." ~Author Unknown

8: Dynamic Character | A dynamic character in my life is my brother, Matthew. When we were little we would build with wooden blocks and Legos together. Now, he is busy with marching band as a drum major, and we never spend time together unless we go out to eat with our family. I'd give up so much just to spend that time with him again. Everyone misses the "good old days," including me. I hope Matthew feels the same way. | "Things do not change; we change." ~Henry David Thoreau | Dynamic Character: A character who changes over the course of a story.

9: Acknowledgments There are so many people I would like to thank. First would be Krista, for putting up with my endless questions. Secondly I want to thank Elizabeth, for always reminding me what my username was. Thirdly, Mrs. Wagner and Mrs. Flynn for giving me a chance to write about my life. Finally to my family, for taking care of me and giving me all of the amazing stories that could and couldn't fit into this book... I wish they all could have. To everyone mentioned in this book, you've changed my life a ton. I'm not just saying that either. Thank you for taking the time to read my book, or at least skimming it and reading these acknowledgments just for fun (I do that all the time). ~--Rebecca--
