Quesada said it was also difficult returning from spring break to play strong competition, as half of the team was gone for a week. He said games against Squalicum and Bellingham are big, tough games that the team can learn from. Before spring break, Blaine lost 10-0 away to Bellingham.
After a doubleheader against Chief Sealth International High School April 9 was canceled, the Borderites traveled to Sedro-Woolley where they failed to score, losing 3-0. The loss gives the boys a 6-4 record so far this season.
When men go through a tedious break up, they might seem happy and distracted but that's really far from the reality that's hit them. As much as a man would like to deny it, he's a social and a dependable creature, who craves companionship and when he's all alone he'll put on a garb and mask his emotions to have frivolous fun to let things go. But there is a lot more to that, when men go through a bad break up. There are stages of getting over the memory of it and that's how they eventually deal with it and let go.
Sometimes relationships crumble and it feels unbearable. It feels like your present and your future have both taken a hike and there is literally nothing left to look forward to. Sometimes you have to try really hard to make something work and sometimes you absolutely give up and take a back seat. Whatever may be the case, there is no point dragging a relationship to its eventual demise when you can either end it there and then or fix it slowly and in most cases, in today's generation, relationships end callously, every split second for the smallest or the biggest of things. The stages that men go through during a breakup is like a learning curve and they do get out of it, but rather slowly. But I feel it's imperative to got though this learning in order to let go of things holding one back.
So, in order to sail through a break up a little more easily, there are 7 stages men go through post break up to recover and it's okay to acknowledge whatever you go through in order to understand it properly.
Men have huge egos and they're suppressed most times when they're in the relationship, especially if they're partner is dominating. It's their way of making sure the ego doesn't become bigger than the relationship but once the relationship is over, the ego masks the entirety of it and to most people men who're going through a break up may seem absolutely fine and loving every ounce of life but they're usually really broken within. So, the stage of the ego is crucial and important and it helps a man go into his shell, subtly to get over the break up.
According to a research led by the Journal of Experimental Psychology on general break ups, one mustn't fight their feelings at all. While it's okay to mask your emotions while going through a tough time, you should always acknowledge them to yourself, in order to move on from any hurt that you're trying to process.
They're also making up for the lack of interaction in their life. Earlier on, constant texting, calling etc. would be the feature of their day but now, since the break up, they try and fill that void by distracting themselves by talking to other women through texts and phone calls. It's not like they'll find someone and fall in love. That's next to impossible for a man who has just come out of a relationship. It's just filling in a habit, which takes time to completely go away.
According to a research conducted by the University of Texas, the core understanding of a break up comes from the fact that you are truly alone and once the realisation dawns upon a man going through a break up, he begins to do things that completely alter and change his state of mind. He begins to look for happiness again. But for that to happen, it's important to realise that he's emotionally weak and alone at that moment.
Now that stage 3 is over and a certain amount of realisation has occurred, everything is questioned since. From the reason to the break up to what led to it, everything comes into serious questioning and that can lead to a lot of anger and sadness at the same time, because you're confronting something you've probably swept under the rug for far too long! So, it's okay to vent out your feelings to yourself if no one else and realise what you went through, through your anger and sadness. It's actually you coming to terms with the break up.
This stage helps you gain all the lost trust you bestowed upon yourself and another person. It helps you re-analyse your wants and your needs once again and try and find your way through the playing field again. The hope is a certainty of the fact that you can do without your ex and that you're going to take every step forward to break away from the previous tie and move on to something more suited for you. This is an important stage and it takes a while to gain that trust to do everything all over again. So, it's important to have tons of patience during this time.
This stage can come months or even years after the first stage. This is the stage of final completion and it helps you know that you're ready to move on to another person altogether. Some men want to be with another woman, some men are content alone, unless they really find what they're looking for. Whatever it is, this stage clears away all the inhibitions and anything else that has stood in the way of getting over the break up, entirely. Sometimes this stage also helps realises that what they had previously made sense and it's okay to give it a shot. But that only happens with immense clarity and of letting go of everything from the past.
A style of street dance that originated among Black youths in New York City during the early 1970s. The dance spread worldwide due to popularity in the media, especially in regions such as South Korea, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and Japan. While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, b-boying consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. B-boying is typically danced to hip-hop, funk music, and especially breakbeats, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns.
BrazilIsmael Toledo was one of the first b-boys in Brazil. In 1984, he moved to the United States to study dance. While in the US, he discovered b-boying and ended up meeting b-boy Crazy Legs who personally mentored him for the four years that followed. After becoming proficient in b-boying, he moved back to Sao Paulo and started to organize b-boy crews and enter in international competitions. He eventually opened a hip-hop dance studio called the Hip-Hop Street College.
Power moves are acrobatic moves that require momentum, speed, endurance, strength, and control to execute. The breaker is generally supported by his upper body while the rest of his body creates a circular momentum. Some examples are the windmill, swipe, back spin, and head spin. Some power moves are borrowed from gymnastics and martial arts. An example of a power move taken from gymnastics is the Thomas Flair, which is shortened and spelled flare in b-boying.
Although there are some generalities in the styles that exist, many dancers combine elements of different styles with their own ideas and knowledge in order to create a unique of their own. B-boys can therefore be categorized into a broad style which generally showcases the same types of techniques.
The musical selection for breaking is not restricted to hip-hop music as long as the tempo and beat pattern conditions are met. Breaking can be readily adapted to different music genres with the aid of remixing. The original songs that popularized the dance form borrow significantly from progressive genres of jazz, soul, funk, electro, and disco. The most common feature of b-boy music exists in musical breaks, or compilations formed from samples taken from different songs which are then looped and chained together by the DJ. The tempo generally ranges between 110 and 135 beats per minute with shuffled sixteenth and quarter beats in the percussive pattern.
Battle of the Year (BOTY) was founded in 1990 by Thomas Hergenrother in Germany. It is the first and largest international breaking competition for b-boy crews. BOTY holds regional qualifying tournaments in several countries such as Zimbabwe, Japan, Israel, Algeria, Indonesia, and the Balkans. Crews who win these tournaments go on to compete in the final championship in Montpellier, France. BOTY was featured in the independent documentary Planet B-Boy (2007) that filmed five b-boy crews training for the 2005 championship. A 3D film Battle of the Year: The Dream Team is scheduled for commercial release in January 2013. It was directed by Benson Lee who also directed Planet B-Boy.
Floor Wars is a three-on-three breaking competition founded in 2005 in Denmark. Eight top ranked international crews, referred to as the Great 8, are automatically invited to participate in the final. The other eight crews qualify for the final through regional tournaments.
R16 Korea is a South Korean breaking competition founded in 2007 by Asian Americans Charlie Shin and John Jay Chon. Like BOTY and Red Bull BC One put together, Respect16 is a competition for the top 16 ranked b-boy crews in the world. What sets it apart from other competitions is that it is sponsored by the government and broadcast live on Korean television and in several countries in Europe. In 2011, R16 instituted a new judging system that was created to eliminate bias and set a unified and fair standard for the way b-boy battles should be judged. With the new system, b-boys are judged against give criteria: foundation, dynamics (power moves), battle, originality, and execution. There is one judge for each category and the scores are shown on a large screen during battles so that the audience can see who is winning at any given moment.
