Whiplash

With this film, the author wanted to make people realize that we need to be purposeful in life. Here the main character, through his diligence and persistence, was able to get what he wanted, and he became an excellent drummer. His teacher did not look good to many, but he created so many difficulties for the boy that he was able to overcome them all. The film was interesting, but in some parts I would not have acted like the main character here, he was more patient.

Casual style

Casual wear/attire/clothing is a Western dress code category that comprises anything not traditionally appropriate with more formal dress codes: formal wear, semi-formal wear, or informal wear. It saw broadscale introduction in the Western world following the counterculture of the 1960s. Notwithstanding sportswear, when emphasising casual wear’s personal comfort, it may be referred to as leisurewear.

In a broader sense, the word «casual» may be defined as anything relaxed, occasional, spontaneous, «suited for everyday use». Sometimes it is also popularly called «informal» in the sense of «not formal», although informal attire traditionally refers to a Western dress code associated with suits — a step below semi-formal attire — thus being more formal than casual attire.

cassual

Meaning it can be said accidental clothing. Its main feature is the comfort and agility. It can contain both classical, festive, and even austere and everyday elements. If you choose a more comfortable style, such as jeans, shirts, light skirts, and jackets, you will not pay much attention to colors. And there are many shoes, boots, balletkas, but no practical or classical shoes. This style is also characteristic of multilayers, such as jeans, blouses, cardigans, belts and a scarf or something like that, but it is time to pay attention to color combinations. This style is also characteristic of the clothes not being very ideal, such as the non-ideal iron blouse, etc.

Stress

These demands can be related to finances, work, relationships, and other situations, but anything that poses a real or perceived challenge or threat to a person’s well-being can cause stress. Stress can be a motivator. It can be essential to survival. The «fight-or-flight» mechanism can tell us when and how to respond to danger. However, if this mechanism is triggered too easily, or when there are too many stressors at one time, it can undermine a person’s mental and physical health and become harmful.

Leader

A leader is the person who manages and guides the rest. Not everyone can be a leader. That person must be able to subjugate the rest, and there are different ways to do it. The leader is a man who, with his individual attributes, leads the crowd, but not by force, people have to follow him voluntarily. The leader is not the boss … The boss is behind closed doors, and the leader is open, the leader is behind him, and the manager is managing and ordering. The leader must be endowed with a number of characteristics. Above all is the ability to hear, but not to hear, but to hear, to understand, to dig deep into the whole essence of words and to understand the whole essence and tasks, and then to speak. The leader must speak, speak constantly and beautifully, but only with sincere and valuable words, so that each word reaches the mind, then the heart.

Sport centers at our school

In our school we have different sport centers, including football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc. My favorite sport is football and I have chosen it. Even recently a football championship was held in our school. I played 9th grade team. We were able to take the 4th place in that championship, but we did not lose it because we were smaller and physically weaker than anyone else. But we were able to fight so much. I love our football sport center and in my opinion children who go to all other sports like that sport center in our school.
